On Flirting With Others... While Married


Source: snooz3r.tumblr.com via Amy on Pinterest

I know I'm not the prettiest person in the world - I'm no super model, and never was homecoming queen. I also know my flirting skills are pretty bad. I did, after all, marry the boyfriend I had at 16. Taking this into consideration, when the opportunity to flirt with a stranger arises, I don't blink twice. I'm totally game.

I had this experience last night, while my guy & I were out at a midnight showing of Rocky Horror.

While the show was going on, I left briefly to use the ladies' room and grab another drink from the bar. While waiting for my (shirtless!) bartender to hand over my precious liquid courage, a guy next to me very casually leaned over and asked, So is this your first time to see the show, or are you an expert? Smooth.

My move.
So I answered that I'd seen it before, but that it'd been at least a year since I'd attended a live performance. 
His move.
He started to tease me & insist that was way too long. Teasing is good. We've moved out of the introductory stage. He's now officially flirting. 
My move.
I tease back & somehow end up getting a jab in about him probably being a computer programmer. (He did, after all look the part.) Bulls eye! He is a computer programmer. 
His move.
He then, of course, makes fun of my job. Not sure why, but okay. I'll take it. 
My move.
Because I'm not quite sure where he was going with his last jab, I gently punch his shoulder, laugh, and turn my attention to the chaos happening on stage. 
His move.
He then offers to buy me a shot. Now we've left the realm of "flirting" and entered the "getting to know each other.... and possibly being able to tell our grand kids the story of how we met" realm. 
My move.
I say I get crazy after a shot & have to get to work in the morning... 
His move.
He insists further because of my response. Which was a totally rookie move on my part. I knew it was time to get out quickly. So I introduced myself. Then said maybe.

And then I did what every other married woman does after being offered a free shot from a guy who's obviously interested in them, I walked away & said hopefully I'll see you around.

Then wrote a blog post about it. Naturally.



I still got it ♥


{Have a Great Weekend!}

***PS - Yes I was wearing my ring the whole time. No I do not condone cheating - emotional, physical or any other. And, yes I told my husband about it immediately afterwards. And there's a slight possibility that hyperbole was used to tell a funny story ;-)

  1. Loved this post! I'm a flirt. With girls. With guys. And I am 100% committed to my man, but sometimes smiling and fun talk is simply fun. :) Hope you have a great weekend, Amy!

  2. Sounds fun. Although, not sure about the "hopefully" see you around part. Hopefully he sees the RING! And -hm- girls eh?

  3. I flirt because it assures me that I can still be loved if my Husband decided to leave me one day. Not that he will, hopefully not, but I like the sense of knowing I still got it. ;)
