    Surely you don't need to know how to flirt if you're sorted with a boy? Besides, hopeless flirting can sometimes be hilarious and can form the staple of a comfortable relationship. As long as you don't actually drive men away by talking. That would be a skill (and one I would like to acquire for the creepy ones that don't leave you alone).:woo:


    Apocalyptica! I knew there was a link I was missing. Totally agree. :yep:
    Well you never know, might want to pick up a third one day :p: But in all seriousness, my flirting is terrible. I'm shy and not confident, especially when in person, and I can never think of things to say, innuendoes just totally pass me by and I'm apparently completely oblivious to whether someone is flirting with me >< (Which I imagine must be a pretty rare occurrence anyway, not sure why anyone would!)

    To give you an example of my inept flirting, when I worked at GSK (big pharmaceutical company), I had a bit of a thing for one of the biochemists I occasionally worked with. One time, I went into his lab to do a few bits and pieces and kinda blurted out "Oh hey Kim, you know, I read that paper you wrote on hyperprolactinaemia following dosing with olanzapine and similar atypical antipsychotics, it was very interesting" >< Fail.

    And Apocalyptica, really? :eek: I thought I was the only one who found guys like that hot!

    That's... pretty incredible. But at least it was a proficient (if slightly verbose) compliment... and don't worry, in my opinion it takes several years of being single to nail the flirting thing. Apparently I do it all the time, whether I'm talking to women or men (perhaps this is why most people think I'm straight...).

    I don't like every member of apocalyptica. The two guys with darker hair? Yespls. :sexface:

    EDIT: is it bad that I'm now tempted to flirt with everything that moves (and that has a penis obvs)?
    Hell no. That's basically how I live my life.

    Gays, go and look at Scott Herman's videos on youtube. Trust me, totally worth your time.

    I don't have anything to add to the 'sexiest instrument' discussion, other than to say it's clearly the skin flute :awesome:

    Lol, his response was just a sort of "Oh, thanks, I um... didn't really do much work on it to be honest. *awkward silence*" ><

    And I'd do them all :coma:

    Since about 1 year, 3 months and 18 days ago, roughly :p: It is if you're good at it lol, to me it's a tremendous effort and uphill struggle XD although I think I made some headway tonight :rofl:

    Then I clearly missed it. :p:


    Of course, if you're making some headway tonight (why does this sound like "giving head"?? Clearly, too much men talk going on in this thread. :p:), then you should defo try it out with your boyfriend.

    I agree. Cellos are the sexiest instrument.
    Agreed :love: one day I hope to learn to play a stringed instrument, either the cello or the violin

    They really are. I'd tap all the members of Apocalyptica purely for that fact :p:

    I really must sell my 'cello at some point.
    I'm glad I'm not the only one who's partner does that :mmm: best fun ever

    And agreed :coma:

    Hello

    I've got one dirty hangover, and have to go teach kids how to defend themselves against a knife. Pah.

    :hugs:

    Is the awkwardness because you feel worried about it or your best friend is giving you reason to feel worried because of behaviour? Hopefully, and I expect, it will predominantly be the former. Hope it all works out.

    Nice to see you back here. :yep:
    I think he's just shocked tbh. I can't believe he hadn't noticed xD He got a bit annoyed and told me i should try harder to be straight. He'll get over it.

    How is everyone today?

    Oh dear. Breeders say the funniest things :mmm:

    I decided not to go to work today. I have to pack and get a big suitcase all the way to my friends' place in Camden, and I cba to do it after work because I have plans tonight.

    On the plus side I'm going to either have Tapas or sausage and mash for lunch :yep:

    I was caught between laughing and being angry. In the end I looked at him and said 'why would I want to do that?'

    I wish I had a job. I'm currently homeless again due to my parents stealing my last grand from my bank and kicking me out. I dont like my parents.

    Morning, gays. How are we all today?

    You really do have one hell of a CV.

    I agree. Cellos are the sexiest instrument.
    Ah, the benefits of a minor-public-school education. :yep: But thank you.

    That's a brilliant chat-up line. Man doesn't know what he's missing.

    My flirting tends to fail because I automatically ramp up the attempted irony/wit/humour/whatever in everything I say, which makes it difficult to be even mildly direct.

    I'm hungover and I have to tutor maths to someone in an hour :sad: I hope I make a good impression.

    Probably a dumb question, but how much should a first-time maths tutor charge per hour ? My sister said I should charge 20 euro/hour but I feel like that's a bit much?

    Gays: I'm going on this debating thing in the Netherlands on Thursday, and one of the nights is a 'Cultural Expo', so I should be bringing a few stereotypically British things (that can be transported easily). Suggestions?

    20 euro/hour is not at all too much; if anything, that's on the cheaper side for tutoring.

    Take the Queen! It would suit you

    On a more serious note, try tea, marmalade, shortbread?

    My mate is confusing. He claims to be straight, but admitted that he's had a bj off mark before, iv woken up spooning him before and he's had his hands down my pants before. Loads of people thought we were together after meeting us. Either he's gay or bi, in which case he should come out to me or he isnt in which case he shouldnt be confusing me :mad:
