Everyone likes getting (politely) hit on as the next person.  It is like a compliment.  However, since being married, I don't really know how to respond to these pursuits.

Here is what happened with me the other night:

Hubs and I and my in-laws went out.  Anthony and his dad left to go get drinks.  MIL and I were alone minding our own business, when approached by...Carmello.  This is a little bit of how the conversation went down:

(Leans really close) C:  How are you guys doing this evening?

Me:  Good.  Thanks for asking.

C:  Do you guys live around here?

Me:  Well, I live in Denton, and my mother in law is in town visiting.

MIL:  Yeah, my husband and I are in town visiting my daughter in law and my son. 

C:  So, I should probably leave before I get in trouble, then?

Me:  Probably...(awkward smile)

I know I am forgetting some of the details, but it was just all around awkward.  In fact, I could be being totally selfish.  Maybe he was hitting on my MIL, not me at all.

I had no make-up on either and looked like a totally drag.  Maybe I was just getting hit on because I looked the like an easy target for a one night stand.

Either way, how on earth do you respond to this situations?  I don't dislike getting hit on. (This situation didn't really phase Anthony.  In fact, when I told him about it, he was kind of disappointed there wasn't a fight.)  It takes a lot of guts to hit on people, and he was super polite.  It was just awkward :\




  1. That was akward!!! On the good side, Hubby got a message that you're still "hot" and he should be extra attentive and flirtatious to you! Hahaha!

  3. Hahaha too funny! I actually think I get hit on now that I am married more than when I wasn't married! The hubs and I get a good laugh out of it! I usually slip in a comment about my husband or make the ring very visible :)
