I don’t know if I’m doing anything particularly different or special. But I regularly run into people who flirt and, I suspect, would be open to dating me, despite the fact that I’m actively not looking for such a thing.
I meet cool dateable people all the time. How hard can it really be (assuming you live in a big city)?
[/quote]You often believe or suspect that people are flirting with you, and you are not always correct. I have only a few times in my life merely suspected someone I just met may be flirting with me, but have never been more than 50% sure.
Also, because I am aware of the problem of pick up artists, cat callers, and other “that guys.” I intentionally and consciously avoid any behavior that could even be remotely close to sexual harassment. This means that if someone is flirting with me, it’s not going to get them anywhere. I am unable to respond because of the consequences if I am wrong. Fear of being “that guy” is so great that it can only be overcome with the power of what equates to expressed written consent.
