Man I missed a few flags in high school...

In French class some guys behind me were complaining about having to learn French.... and this teacher had it going on eh so naturally French was my favourite subject... anyway she looks at them and then looks at me and says in that sexy voice "français est la langue de l'amour" ...and I just about melted into my seat....

The following year in math class, I would sit and chat with this girl sometimes, well one day we're sitting there chatting away and we're facing each other eh, like our bodies are facing each other... so we got the body chemistry going on eh and she starts poking my leg (like in the vastas rectus region) and she says "wow your legs are muscular"...being the virgin that I was I didn't know how to pick up on that cue and the fire quickly went out. It wasn't until many years later that I realized what she was getting at...(smh)

In gym class I was the guy who was entrusted with the key to the locker rooms, no one got in or out unless I was there to turn the key. We shared a gym period with the girls who were our seniors and one day after gym I was asked to unlock the girls locker room at the end of the period because there teacher had to step out for a bit, well as I'm unlocking their door I feel some hands come upon me (just on my back) and the girls are pushing me inside their locker room! I couldn't believe what was going on! I didn't want to get into any kind of trouble so I just pushed my way out of the crowd and I walked away so pissed off, fully wishing that I had just gone along with it.

And there was that girl in art class who would lend me pencils and whatever else all the time, I should've asked her out but I was too cool y'know

I say it all the time eh, if only I knew then what I know now ahaa

Hmm. Can't really say I've had this kind of experience. Well, not really.

When I was in Japan, a group of Japanese high school girls passed by me and all greeted me in English, but I was totally spacing out. After a few yards, I realized what happened, looked at the people I was with, and mentally face palmed.

I Senior in high school(Obv I was legal), notably the prettiest teacher in my school told me: "you have a baby face, with very nice eyes". You could say she had a 'baby face'.

Personally I don't.


Well, I think the important question is how she said it to you. Did she get closer to you? Did her tone of voice change to be softer or sweeter? Was it said in a seductive tone for that matter?

Also, would you call your teacher sharp or klutzy? I ask because personality matters here: if she's a klutz, then she might have said it harmlessly, but if she is sharp, then there is likely an intention, perhaps a form of teasing (sharp-minded people hardly every say anything without intent, after all).

The most important question is did anything happen over the past 17 hours since you've posted this forum? Did she make any more moves, subtle or bold?

Think about these questions and then answer me. I'd like to give you a good answer, but this is a case where data should be collected and considered.

P.S. Just because



This is past-tense, man. She is a Math teacher, so she was sharp, but she puts up the klutz act. I haven't seen this teacher since I graduated 2 years ago, but when I made my rounds to say farewell to my teachers she told me "be sure to come back and say hi".

This random girl in the lobby with me at the doctor's office randomly blurted out to me that I had a "strong name" and my response was to look up and say "ah, okay" and then continue filling out paperwork. Even immediately after I don't recall ever seeing a face since I was a bit lost in thought anyway.

I don't mind complements but that felt like a reach and it was something that I had pretty much no control over. I do feel that was a bit mean in retrospect but I was there in a fearful mood and in great pain. Different circumstances may have prompted a different reaction, in the case of this thread... the situation definitely warrants the unassuming route.

While off the main topic and a bit more specific to my post, was that really as poor an attempt of a compliment that I perceived it to be regardless of intent? I don't wish to react too abnormally to such things and I have this nagging feeling I handled that poorly under stress.

I was like this in school too, I had more female friends then male ones. Probably because my dad walked out on me when I was young. But looking back I was dense. I had a girl that would run up to me and give me a hug every time she saw me, even when I was another girl. On a side note, when I rode the school bus, before I got my car, the same girl always sat with me and would get mad if I sat with anyone else.

If I knew what I know now hahah.. I feel you on that for sure..

A random girl in the doctor's office, blurted out that she liked your name, yeah you missed that flag lol. But don't sweat it you probably came off a little cold, but I mean who picks up people in a doctor's office? Don't let it bother you everyone reacts a certain way under stress; maybe you felt nervous? Can you recall their face at all?

Nope, I was at the time focused only on the intense pain and worrying about the grade of the injury. I used to be like that often, lost in thought so much that I process images in my head more than what I actually perceive, just not under those circumstances since I have mostly broken that habit years ago.

Also to avoid consecutive posting you can open up the quote in a new tab and copy/paste it as an edit to your last post.

Missed so many flags in middle school that when I finally realized I was missing flags, and tried to fix my mistakes. I ended up forgetting half of the people outside of my immediate family.

I was somewhat hoping someone here could tell me hahah... Does it have anything to do with long sounding syllables? There is a tendency of male names to feature those more but I don't see how that makes any names stand out from the norm.

The only flag you can't miss is the last episode of If Her Flag Breaks this Wednesday.
