Oh no. Oh noooooo…
Flirting is one part fine art and two parts deadly extreme sport. With the possibility of being accepted or rejected by a potential romantic partner in the balance, the emotional stakes are high – and so are the chances of wiping out.
For every overture that’s warmly accepted there are bound to be a dozen or so come-ons that whiff harder than a toddler attacking his first piñata.
This post is about those failed flirting attempts…those jokes, pick-up lines, and wild stabs at seduction that flew too close to the sun and went down in flames.
Hey you never know unless you try.
