    For me I walk away and I tell FI what happened. We arepretty open like that. FI does the same thing.  There are some situations where girls will flirt with FI and I think it’s funny.  It’s usually at work. There are a few ladies that we said were going to be devastated when they found out we were engaged. (we work in the same department).

    it really depends on the situation. like when a guy on the street stops and asks me for my number or whatever, I tell him, that I am happily married. If I just get hit on by someone in a social setting I ignore them and mention my husband immediatly.

    I’m in the Navy so this is almost a daily occurance. Most know I have a FI, but it doesn’t seem to matter for a few of the fellas. When it gets out of control I pull them aside and let them know it is getting innappropriate. Straight forward seems to do the trick.

    this question reminds of the episode of friends where ross can’t flirt, lol.

    anyways, i do flirt back a little bit and i don’t hide the fact that i’m taken. my fiance knows and actually he does a little flirting too. we don’t go out of our way to flirt with other people and we don’t do it often, but if he’s out with his buddies or i’m out with my friends, and we find ourselves with a friendly bartender or something, a little flirting is no big deal. we usually tell each other and laugh about it.

    Either no one ever flirts with me, or I have so little game that I don’t notice! I actually went out with another guy once and didn’t realize it was supposed to be a date until he tried to pay for both of us (I thought we were just friends). OMG it was mortifying.

    Good question! When it’s someone with whom I have been interacting and/or will have to interact with in the future, I stay warm and friendly but professional and cut it short quickly (I’m a TA for a college class, which is when this sometimes comes up). On very rare occasion when a stranger pays me a compliment on the street, I genuinely thank him and keep moving. When it’s someone on the street being obnoxious, I say nothing and keep moving even faster. Lots of randomness on and around a college campus…

    ETA: Forgot the dreaded guy-friend-come-on… Then I must admit I try to make myself look bad by mentioning something unflattering, and I may make a joke or 2 that’s appropriate from a friend but not a girlfriend

    I freak out and tell my FI. He gets a kick out of it, and usually lets me know when someone was checking me out.

    I said other b/c I don’t flirt back but I am nice/friendly. If the flirting continues for too long, I then mention my husband.  I always tell my husband about it.

    I’m a flirt but I always let them know I’m very, very taken. FI is the same way.
