4 Places Where You Should Not Be Flirting

I am a firm believer that there is a time and place for everything.

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I feel like there should be a manual for life, because some people are just lost.

Cuffin’ season is apparently around the corner, because everyone is currently searching for a significant other or a warm body to sleep next to during the cold nights. I must admit, I find some of the places people try to meet people at quite entertaining, but these locations are often weird. There are just certain places that when someone approaches you, you think, “They cant be serious.”

Here is a list of 4 places that you should not attempt to pick someone up.

In the Waiting Room – First of all, look around. You are in a doctor’s office. You don’t know why the person is seeking medical help. Yes, it could be for a regular check up, but it could also be for for something a lot more serious. Either way, chances are, no one wants to be hit on in the waiting area. I know I don’t like to be bothered by anyone when I’m in the waiting area  if it’s not a nurse or the doctor and i’m not interested in making small talk as we wait to be called.

During Church Service – There’s a possibility the church you attend may have some attractive members, but maybe you should hold off. While it can be a great place to find a person who is possibly very wholesome, the church  may not be the most appropriate place. Although you can’t control your attraction, you can manage your actions.  If you happen to see them after the service is over, then you can go for it. While service is still taking place, be respectful and be patient.

In the Office – You may have a coworker whose gorgeous looks get you through the day, but is it worth the stress? While this eye candy may be extremely tempting, withdraw your sweet tooth and take a loss on this one. Hooking up with someone at work can be very awkward if things don’t work and can be the can of worms the office gossipers need.

At a Funeral – I don’t think there is much to be said for this location. You’re at a funeral where it is a time for grieving, not time to prey on someone’s sorrows. How could you not feel guilty at that moment. While others are mourning a loss, you are trying to satisfy your carnal desires. It’s inappropriate and awkward, keep your eyes, hands and number to yourself.
