Ignorant Men Reveal The Terrible Times When They Didn’t Know Someone Was Hitting Them
While some single men claim to be too afraid to take the first step with someone equal for fear of crossing the line, it seems many need a serious lesson in reading the signs.
In a hilarious viral Twitter thread, started by New York-based comedian David Drake, men have shared the times when they had absolutely no idea that women were flirting with them — despite obvious come-ons.
He confessed that his own worst moment was not realizing a girl liked him when she got into bed with him during a sleepover and started tickling him.
Another revealed that when his crush said she was “too cold” to go home from a party and asked to stay, he gave her as a sweater and sent her on her way.
Another explained how a McDonald’s employee wrote her number on his receipt and that he threw it away because he thought she’d done it in case his food went bad.
Meanwhile, a man said he was completely oblivious to the fact that his co-worker hinted that she wanted to go to a movie with him until she asked him out and revealed that the couple were now happily married.

Some revealed how they didn’t see women hitting them, even when they left their phone number on their McDonald’s receipt or pointed out that they didn’t have a date to go to the prom
David Drake relived his moment of complete ignorance, writing in the tweet that kicked off the thread: “In high school I went to a sleepover and the girl I liked climbed into bed with me and she started tickling me, and I had something like “Hahaha okay now time to go to bed” and I think about that twice every 5 minutes.’
Another added: ‘My family was away in high school, so I had the house to myself and threw a party. At the end of the night this girl I liked said “I’ll just spend the night here”.
‘I said, ‘You don’t want to go?’ She was like “It’s cold”. So I got her a sweater and sent her on her way.’
Another revealed that he turned down the chance on a date because he was dating his sister, but at least there was a happy ending.
“I was chatting with a woman I liked at work about seeing this limited-release movie, and she said, ‘That sounds really cool. I’d like to see it,’ and I said, ‘Yeah, I go with my sister. Goodbye!” A week or so later she asked me out. We’re married now,” he explained.

“When I was a teenager, a cute girl who worked at McDonald’s wrote her number on the back of my receipt and I thought, ‘I bet they do this in case there’s something wrong with my order.’ Then thrown in the trash,” another confessed.
Others admitted they also missed cues from women they were interested in when they were younger.
“Back in high school, I was chatting with a girl I liked in my youth group about how my prom date was canceling on me and she gave me a definite “look” and said, “I’d like to go to the prom, but I’m not on a date,” and I was like, “Yeah, we’re in this together. This sucks,” someone recalls.
Moved into my dorm in the first semester of college, got a knock on my door the first night and a cute girl said she was looking for a ‘cuddle buddy’ for the night to help her sleep. I told her it didn’t sound safe and closed the door for her,” said another.

And several men said they didn’t get the hint, even when the women invited them.
“In college, after a waiter job, this cute waitress said to me, ‘Let’s go to my house, no one will be home.’ I said, “How can nobody be home when we go there?” She went home alone and I think about that every time I’m home now,” one person wrote.
“Once a girl invited me over, and I quote, ‘Help me put up my lights because you’re so tall’. Then she invited me to stay the night. we had both gone into her bed, she was like “I usually sleep naked” and I said, “Okay, I’ll look away until you’re back under the covers,” someone recalls.
Other men shared their own stories, one of which said he eventually married the woman when she took it upon herself to ask him out.
However, the same guy revealed that the girl stopped giving hints and just went for a kiss.
“I once smoked for the first time with a girl I really liked and she said, ‘I’ve heard you have to kiss after you smoke for the first time’. I said, “Haha, that’s not real I don’t think,” another man recalled.
A man revealed how he used to think that one of the women on his school cross-country team was “out of his class.”
“At our 20th reunion, she got up, gave me a huge wet kiss, and asked, ‘WHY DON’T YOU ASK ME?” I think about that every 5 milliseconds,” he revealed.
