Flirting at Cons... Inapproriate or AWESOME? 8D
« on: September 02, 2009, 10:50:55 pm »
So. My friend is planning on introducing me to an odd concept; flirting. AND AT THE CON?!??! xD

Well, the story is I'm eighteen and have never flirt(or been on a real date but STFU. xD). I find boys pretty intimidating and/or stupid or arrogant. SO, she's making me loosen up and flirt. BE WARNED IF YOU'RE CUTE AND ASIAN~ ;D

xD

Well, do you guys have any opinions/stories to go along with this? :3

I looooove discussions like this. xD

As long as it doesn't get too 'woah, back off there buddy' it's cute. :3
I, personally, am a completely unconscious flirt. Like, I don't even realize I'm doing it half the time.
I take flirting as friendly conversation between two people with a relative amount of chemistry, it's fun and some awesome friendships can be formed if you find someone with similar humor.

Flirting in general is usually awesome.  8)
All depression has its roots in self-pity, and all self-pity is rooted in people taking themselves too seriously.

Fact: It will be difficult to flirt in crossplay.

Just be ready to back off, and don't come on too strongly. And own up to it too.

Likewise, if you don't like if someone else is flirting, don't be afraid to tell them. If you think you have *reason* to be afraid to tell them, report it to security. But if you tell them and they back away harmlessly, don't make a big deal out of it either.

Both sides are going to be sending out unintentional signals, and things are bound to be misinterpreted on all sides.

Flirt with people who looks generally playful: NOT the serious ones, even if they're cute! xD

It's fun, I'm sure you'll have a blast. :3 And even if someone takes it the wrong way and thinks you're just being friendly, hey, a new friend!

Crossplay flirting only makes it more of a challenge~ ;D

Oh, yeah~
I've just always been really shy, so I doubt I'll come on too strong. xD
I looooove making new friends. <3

My mom says I need to get a boyfriend already though. xD
Which I understand, I think it'd be kinda nice. :3

BLECH, mom's are dumb. Mine complained when you don't have a boyfriend at age 7, then yelled at you when you get one later.

And personally, it never matters the age you go on your first date, because it all comes down to if you ever met someone you liked enough to want to date. :0 Nothing else to it~

AND LET'S BE FRIENDS!

To an extent, fun and awesome.  :D  However, it may be inappropriate if there is a significant age difference, IMO. I know it's all fun and games, but sometimes, there's just a line, however imaginary it may be...

And so it begins...

Well... I had a boyfriend, but we never really went on a date or even kissed or anything ever, so yeah. xD
My mom keeps bugging me to get back together with him but noooooo. D:
xD

My mom's always been really pushy about how I should be more girly and stuff. I'm sorry if I only crossplay mom, but girl cosplay just isn't as appealing to me. xD

That's what I told her!

AND YES. <3
Find me as the Con, and I'll be your buddeh. Just tell me who the hay you are first. xD

My mom is funny, because whenever I crossplay, she's all 'Oh, my son!' and stuff, hahaha. I think she wishes I was more girly, but what can you do? ;'0

Now I'll stop spamming your thread, lololol.

LOL. I'm a chick and I'm 18 too! What a coincidence. Sooo, my idea on this is that if you are gonna flirt with someone, make sure that they aren't standing next to their girlfriend! AHAH. Otherwise, I think it's pretty fun and awesome. 8D

'S not my fault.
I didn't wanna get married. XD

A different time a boy gave me a snowglobe for christmas but it broke, so he gave me his mom's diamond earrings. ^.^;
My mom was so wide-eyed when I got home and made me give them back.

O: You know I just realized it's her fault I had all those issues.
She's the one that made me apoligize and give stuff back. XD

I remember in second grade me and my best friend shared a boy, he was our boyfriend.
But then she moved so in third grade he was just mine. but then he moved so we called eachother every day for a month before our attention spans forgot about it.

I found it amusing. Because he scratched his head and said, "Sorry ma'am.. My heart belongs to this handsome hunk of a man!" Then he grabbed me and nuzzled my neck. I was like, "LOL!"

Sorry to bring in some negativity, but I met my abusive ex at Kumoricon because I was mindlessly flirting.  We were "together" for almost a (very miserable)year. 


The moral of the story?  DON'T FLIRT WITH JUST ANYONE.


Anyways, flirting with friends is fun, and if they introduce you to anyone they're probably safe to flirt with.  Strangers who seem charming enough at first glance?  Perhaps be a little more wary.

Oooh. You're right about the negativity. Lol. My ex was abusive too. But I loved him at the time for all it was worth, so I liked to remember the good times. I'm not trying to be rude or anything.

So yes, stalk your victims to see who they realllly are before flirting. XD (jk jk) <3
