Kimi stopped swinging his legs in the backseat of the car, sitting on his hands as his excitement threatened to spill over into other limbs. James looked at his son through the rear-view mirror and smiled as he watched him bounce up and down.
Kimi didn’t see this, or anything else for that matter, as he had a blindfold tied loosely around his head, blocking everything out.
“Are we nearly there?” Kimi asked for about the hundredth time.
“Where are we going?”
“Can’t tell you that. It would ruin the surprise.”
Kimi stopped bouncing for a moment. “Is it a party?”
"Do you hit on people when they would rather not be hit on?" Well, I try not to. But due to the prevalence of storylines like the one in EGS right now, I am forced to conclude that women _never_ like to be hit on. This has led to a very lonely life. I try as hard as I can to be polite, but when one must necessarily withdraw 100% at the slightest hint of any response other than enthuiastic affirmation, one looks, and feels, pathetic. When SHOULD people hit on other people? What's the line?
It’s possible I’m about to embarrass myself trying to give a good answer to this, BUT I WILL TRY.
There is no easy answer for knowing precisely when one should flirt with someone else. It’s possible one needs to be willing to risk some embarrassment in that regard.
Larry’s case isn’t exactly about that, though, and there’s a reason I keep using the expression “hitting on” instead of “flirting”. In my mind, even if not true outside of it, there is a distinction between trying to pick up someone and flirting with them.
Larry sat down at a card game tournament where the social expectation is courtesy and respect between people as they play card games (trash talking exempt from this expectation), and he immediately opened with a tired pickup line instead of getting to know Sarah naturally and getting a feel for who she is and what she may or may not be interested in.
It’s (theoretically) possible there could have been some natural chemistry, and that’s one of the reasons I feel there’s no easy answer. There isn’t a checklist one can follow to know “now is the time when the flirting will be acceptable”. One has to pay attention, think, and have empathy to sort it all out.
That said, tired pick up lines and such prrrrrrobably aren’t the way to go. People are people, though, and it’s entirely possible someone other than Sarah would have actually liked this sort of attention. I don’t, however, think simply assuming someone would in this situation is a good idea. Pretty sure that would be more the exception than the rule.
As for when people should hit on other people right off the bat like that, there are situations in which single people gather specifically with the intent of meeting other single people. I don’t think comic shops usually fit that description.
i feel like reading fanfic has kind of broken my desire to read published stories bc like theyre so bland tbh like. where the hell am i gonna get queer android romance in a bookstore. who writes about past assassins working together in a coffeeshop. all i see are straight white people making out like really like REALLY
“Why is it that you freak out at the idea of fingering? I didn’t put that prostate in you, Jesus Christ did and I’m sure he had a good goddamn reason, buck the hell up.”—Actual conversation between two straight guys at my bar tonight (via trickwolves)
please stop pretending that the rise of neo-nazi parties in europe is tied to anything other than antisemitism
like believe it or not??? the success of neo-nazi parties in europe is not bc they’ve somehow duped the whole world into forgetting they’re literal fucking neo nazis. it’s not coincidental that there’s an uptick in anti-semitism every time there’s an economic crash, and neo-nazi parties are milking that for all they can.
There’s this asshole who every time he sees me with my ukulele he thinks he’s funny and asks “Can you play any Metallica?” but the joke is now on him because I just learned how to play the intro riff to Master of Puppets.
I did it. I fucking did it. He asked me again just like I knew he would and I stared him straight in the eyes without blinking and just fucking shredded on my ukulele
