    Several times, I've been hit on before during the course of my life from different angles, some of them awkward, some of them pleasant (some from the wrong people too!)  I'd like to hear a few spicy stories if at all possible!

      my lips are sealed. to answer your question "Any hubber get hit on whether online or offline" the answer is of course, who hasn't? I usually manage to send them packing without giving any personal information away. in online worlds, I turn off private messaging and emailing, which does the trick quite well.

    Many stories. Too tired to think of one to share... Maybe later...

    Maybe there is a lot to learn every time one has been through such a situation.

    Ah, such things are not in the life of a nerd.  Okay, I might not be the typical nerd, but I pretty much stuck to my self for most of my life.  I don't  know that I have ever been in this situation, at least not that I paid attention to.  So, what does that say?

  5. dohn121 profile image82
    dohn121posted 8 years ago

    Well, sometimes when you do get hit on, it can be very subtle, sometimes even TOO subtle--to the point where you are oblivious to the fact that you are being hit on!  Being pretty oblivious to just about everything, I'm a BLACK BELT at missing all signs!

    Been hit online and offline. But sadly guys hit on me even after I say I'm not interseted and the main info I'M MARRIED!!

    UGH I hate when guys hit on me after I say i'm married. They are always so dumb when they say that they are better than my husband and blah blah blah, tooting their own horn is turn off boys!

    and when a girl says their married, leave her alone duh! lol

      Some men consider it the ultimate prize if they can win a woman away from another man.  It is a territorial thing.  I have talked to some women who said their boyfriend had not interested in them, but after the break up all of a sudden they are acting territorial when the find out about the new guy.

    I used to miss it entirely when someone did hit on me, figuring it out only long after the Door of Opportunity had been closed and locked with triple deadbolts.  But there was one time even I couldn't miss the point.

    It was in 1965.  In Germany.  On a deserted road, with some but not much light by which to see.  On foot.  I was 21, heading back to my Army base late at night.  The GUY passed me (also on foot) going the other way, then began the conversation from a "safe" distance of a few paces.

    "Not interested?"  He asked. 

    "No," I replied politely but with deep caution.  Didn't get it, though.

    "Not even for money?" He asked.

    "Hell,  no," I responded, with some vehemence this time...but (believe it or not) I still didn't get it.  Oh, did I mention I was 21?  From Montana?  Wearing (ahem) tight white Lee jeans and two-toned cowboy boots? 

    "How big is it?"  He asked.  THEN I got it.  Oh, did I mention I was a raging homophobic, a rabid gay-hater, at the time (no emails, please; got over that more than 40 years ago)...? 

    There followed (on my part) a lot of snarling, shouting, and aggressive waving of a chunk of 4 x 4 timber that happened to be lying beside the road.  Accompanied (on his  part) by a lot of continued attempts at persuasion.

    Come to think of it, that's a Hub.  Gotta make notes....

    Geez I get hit on all the time. I joined this site called Tagged,which I originally became a member of just to use as another social bookmarking site. Instead of funny looking kitties, I have a 10 year old picture of myself posted over there. It's a funny thing, I get all of these girls 20+ years younger than myself wanting to be my friend or lover or whatever, If I just sign up for a free lifetime porn membership (LOL)

    Dohn, the threads that you start?! Tsk, tsk, tsk. But I'm still answering it. LOL. Off-line, nobody hits on me especially when my husband is around or when they see how chubby I am. Seems men do not like overweight women, not in my area anyway.

    Online, now that's another story (long time ago though). Used to chat online like more than 10 years ago and I get guys asking me out or asking my phone number or asking my picture. Then when they talk to me over the phone, I get more "hits". Seems like my voice over the phone sounds like the source comes from a sexy woman. smile My friends often teased me about it because they say I looked beautiful when I'm behind the computer or the phone smile.
