Comedian Jerry Seinfeld once said that dating is “all pressure and tension. What is a date, really, but a job interview that lasts all night?” While some people are particularly gifted at picking up on those subtle hints that indicate if he or she is into you, it seems like others could be hit in the face with a frying pan of clues and still just not get it.
The community on Reddit was faced with a simple question: “Ladies, what is the most obvious hint you’ve dropped that went unnoticed by a guy?’” Plenty of gals (and clueless guys who either realized their mistake later or were clued in by a patient woman) had hilarious stories to share of the times that signals got crossed, lost, dropped or misread.
Perhaps there is something to the suggestion that men are from Mars and women are from Venus…
#52 Dry Cleaning Is Expensive
Early interaction with my boyfriend-
Me: “That suit looks great on you. It would look better on the floor.”
Him: “That would wrinkle the suit.”
#51 At Least He Got An ‘A’
I look back on it now and see how I totally missed the hint. In college, a girl in my class came over to study and when it got late she ended up wanting to stay. I had a couch in my room and said she could sleep on the couch. When I was getting ready for bed…
Her: “I usually have a hard time falling asleep. Do you want to lay down together and watch Netflix with me?”
Me: “Nah, I got a test tomorrow”
But hey, I got an A on that stinking test.
Christina if you’re out there, I’m not gay, I’m just oblivious to hints.
