FI works at a kiosk at the mall that his family owns. The other day, he tells me that he thinks this girl at one of the other stands likes him. I asked how he could tell and he said she kept flirting with him (Note: FIs oblivious, for him to notice is saying something). I asked if she knows he’s engaged and he’s like, “I’m pretty sure. [FSIL] was talking to her and she said that I was cute and she said, yea, he’s engaged!” He tells me that next time he’s at work, he’s going to “fly his nerd flag high” in the hopes of deterring her.
I get a text from him today. He wore his My Little Pony shirt and belt, batman shoes, and spent his downtime assembling his warhammer miniatures. All the message said, “SOS. It’s not working!”
I’m just sitting here laughing my ass off at the idea of him scurrying from unwanted female attention. Poor guy. Any ideas on how he can get this chick off his dick?

@HonoraryNerd: Go visit him! Drape yourself all over him 🙂 Introduce yourself to her as his fiancee 🙂

why can’t he be straight up? “I’m engaged and not interested. Sorry.”

@HonoraryNerd: My fiance “blacks out” when he doesn’t want to talk to someone. He closes his eyes, lets his neck go limp, and pretends to be asleep until the offending party leaves.

@s2bmrscook: LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WHAT!!! HAHAHHAHHA I would LOVE to see this happen one day!
@HonoraryNerd: She might be into his nerdiness! He should just start bringing you up in conversation like all the time. Just drop your name and relationship and talk about the wedding planning a ton. She’ll likely get the hint and move on. Though, she might be one of those girls who doesn’t care.

How about he says, “I think you may have gotten the wrong idea. I have a fiance and [insert flirty behavior here] is making me uncomfortable.”

He should say “I’m engaged. His name is Dave”

@Jacqui90: I can’t visit him without inconveniencing someone. It’s on post, so I can’t get on without a sponsor.
@s2bmrscook: That’s hilarious. Definitely a suggestion!
@futuremrsk18: I’m pretty sure she’s one of those that doesn’t care. His sister is very blunt. I’m sure that conversation went, “Yea, cute guy is my brother. He’s getting married. His fiance is super awesome. They’ve been together for a really long time. She’s like my sister. Her wedding dress is beautiful. Did I mention he’s engaged?”
@memo: We actually know a Dave and that makes your comment just that much better. That’s fantastic.

@AngelR88: He’s just an awkward guy. He avoids talking to people in general, let alone saying, Thanks, but no thanks.

@Miss Joker: Yea, he just started playing 40k. A friend was moving into a smaller place and gave him a whole army. They just needed to be put together.
