People Share The Weirdest And Dumbest Places They’ve Ever Been Hit On

Being hit on can be kind of flattering…when it isn’t creepy or weird. Sometimes it feels nice to know there are things about us that are desirable. However, there are certain places and situations where you just shouldn’t even think about it.

Let me share mine. I had a huge water stain that was leaking on my bathroom ceiling, so I called my landlord and they sent someone over to fix it. My boyfriend was over at the time, and after they finished patching the ceiling the one guy asked if I wanted to get drinks sometime…

Truly Did Not Read The Room At All

Tweet: Twitter what's the weirdest place you've ever been hit on? An older dude once tried to pick me up after a screening of Larry Clark's KIDS in an amazingly catastrophic failure to read the room.

KIDS is a weird movie to sit through, it just leaves you in a strange headspace. I feel like after watching that movie, no one would feel into dating at all.

Who Else Doesn’t Miss High School At All?

Some people have unshakable confidence that makes them think that it’s OK to walk up to a grown woman and ask her on a date even though she is clearly never going to be interested.

Smooth Move On His Girlfriend’s Part

When life gives you lemons, make your boyfriend feel awkward waiting for you outside of the bathroom. In this case, the lemons were two women who didn’t understand what boundaries are.

Jokes Aside, This Is So Scary

He was a police officer! He’s supposed to help people, not make them feel freaked out and unsafe in their own home. I bet she wishes that he had just given her the ticket instead.

Doesn’t Seem Like The Right Time Or Place

It’s already a bold move to try and hit on someone who is with their parents, it’s a whole other thing to do it when you’re an adult man and she’s still a child.

Does He Not Know How Air Conditioning Works?

People who are older love to rip on us young kids for having holes in our pants. Do we regret that phase in fashion? Maybe. But did we intend for it to be a way for creepy men to start talking to us? Absolutely not.

Why Did He Think That Was Going To Work?

This guy really thought that he could blame her for the car accident and then act like it was no big deal and ask her to go with him. Like, what?!

Women Love A Man In Uniform

This seems like a risky move to me because you really don’t know what they look like under the uniform. Not that looks are everything, but we already know Darth Vader doesn’t have a good personality.

They Really Will Never Give Up

What about a person puking on the street makes you think, “Hmm this guy looks like he needs to be hit on. Maybe it will cheer him up? It’s worth a try.”

It’s Always When You Least Expect It

I hope that they went back to the same CVS a few times looking for the person who thought she was cute when she looked gross and sick. That’s a cute story for the grandkids?

This Went From Weird To Bad

Who in their right minds would EVER start touching a stranger’s bare feet in New York? Maybe it was those lederhosen that tipped the scales for them, I just know it was.

Is This The New Cat Call?

Catcalling is already a big no for obvious reasons—because it is gross. It appears that men have evolved away from catcalling to just fully meowing at women. It’s the natural logical progression, I guess?

There Should Have Been Some Red Flags

I’m not an HR expert, but I have a feeling that if you have to start a sentence with, “I’m not that guy, but I’m going to kind of do what that guy did…” you should not start that sentence at all.

Not The Best Opening Line

We all say really stupid stuff around people who make us nervous. However, the last thing you want someone to be thinking about when they think of you is food poisoning.

Let’s Hope It Wasn’t His Vomit

This guy saw his chance and he just went for it. No one else was going to go approach her while she was cleaning up puke with cat litter. Now was his time to shine.

Is There No Shame?

The disrespect that is trying to pick someone up at their own fiancé’s funeral is unbelievable. Let’s hope that they weren’t friends. The SpongeBob fetish is weirder, though, but not worse.

Because Women Don’t Need To Read

I don’t know about you, but if someone came up to me in a coffee shop and pulled this stunt, I would probably imagine smacking him in the face with the book that was too big.

Because Being Strangers Is Sexy

Did he forget that she knew who he was? Or maybe this was his effort at doing that thing where if you’re mean to someone they’ll like you more or whatever.

There’s No Time Like The Present

Maybe this person had some kind of weird bathroom fetish, in which case, ignoring them was probably the best choice, assuming that’s what they did. Please tell me that’s what they did.

I’d Probably Bolt Too

At least this woman put her foot down and called him out on being gross. Like, clearly, this is not the time to be up in her face trying to make her love you.
