SO had to do some cashier training yesterday so he can relieve cashiers for breaks on Black Friday. Both the girl who was training him and the girl at the next register over were flirting with him. His reaction was to come home and lavish me with compliments all. night. long. Like pausing netflix to tell me I’m pretty( you don’t pause Star Trek in the middle of an action scene! especially not when you’ve already said that five times in the last hour. (don’t get me wrong, I like compliments as much as the next girl, but after a few hours I’d rather just have a normal conversation with my SO.)). I asked him why he was doing it, and he said “I’m the worst cheater ever”. I think it’s funny that other girls flirting with him makes him so ridiculously sappy that he spends the night declaring his love and that he’s going to marry me.
So Bees how do you and your SO handle flirts?

He doesn’t even realie that girls are flirting with him so I not so subtly send them “back of he’s mine” signals. I just remind them that I’m engaged and love my fiance and nothing is going to change that.

Fi doesn’t get it when girls are flirting with him. He just doesn’t notice it. Fine by me! 😀

@missmorganista: SO used to be oblivious when girls were flirting with him, but he’s put two and two together and realized that when girls compliment him and hit him (playfully on the arm and such) they’re flirting with him. A few years ago a coworker was throwing herself at him. I mean, she met me at an hours long social occasion and continued to throw herself at him afterwards. That experience taught him what flirting looks like when its directed at him.

He’ll flirt back, but make it obvious that I’m his woman. Neither of us see any harm in flirting if no one is being lead on. Hell we’ve been known to go on “dates” with other people.
Like say a mutual girlfriend is feeling lonely or “not pretty”. We’ll take her out and fawn over her and flirt shamelessly. She knows it’s all in fun. We know it’s all in fun and it makes her feel better. So why not?

My SO is a naturally very flirty person – with everyone. He’s just very friendly and jokey and easy to talk to, so people often interpret his behaviour. I know how he is so it never bugs me at all. He’s so straightforward about having a family though that I don’t think people who see him regularly would ever actually think he was flirting with them. I’ve seen women flirt with him and he’ll be friendly, but never in a leading them on way.

My boo only has eyes for me apparently. Even when I point it out or they touch his hair (which I agree is fantastic) he gets confused. When we met all of his friends wives were like we tried to hook him up before and he was oblivious, how’d you get him to pay attention to you.
I am glad flirting goes over his head cuz I can get jealous pants which usually results in me putting on my annoyed hat to match.

He’s usually oblivious and I have no problem stepping up cooly to put an early stop to it. He doesn’t tend to notice that I’ve done this either… subtle female signals are lost on this guy, lol! Afterward, when I explain to him what happened, he usually finds what the girl did as rude but funny.
If it’s really obvious, he’ll quickly dismiss her himself, but he has considerably less tact than me. Which isn’t to say I’m friendly about it. Some girls think they can bully their way in, so the message has to be very clear immediately.

My SO gets hit on all the time. I think he’s attractive, but also friendly and approachable. I have stood back and watched women in action before. It cracks me up. He sometimes doesn’t even realize what’s going on until I tell him. He always turns 4 shades of red. He then reminds me I am his one and only.

Erm. I’m the oblivious one haha. I don’t really notice when girls flirt with him in person (maybe they don’t when I’m around since I’m right there?) But if girls start texting/FBing him flirty things he completely ignores them and doesn’t respond.
I also don’t really notice when guys flirt with me, but he certainly does, and quickly steps up to put his arm around me or something else subtle yet obvious. If the guy is obvious about it, I’ll notice and quickly make it clear I am not single/interested. Some guys don’t care, and if it gets to that point I just walk away silently.

@kittyface: Darling Husband is like this too. I say he is a natural born salesman and he makes girls from about ages 10-80 stammer and blush. Once, years ago when he was helping me out at a previous job, I had a customer ask me if he was available to take her high school daughter to prom… cue awkward silence.
It used to bother me but it doesn’t any more. I know he thinks about me throughout the day because he calls and texts me when he can, and he is eager to come home to me every night.

Mine either doesn’t even realize they’re flirting, or is just cold to them/ignores them, lol.
