When does flirting get out of control?

Last year I was on an elegant dinner date in Laguna Beach. I noticed our waitress kept eyeballing my very handsome date. Every time she'd walk by our table, she was smiling directly at him.

Apparently she was a gold digger too. He had dropped his car keys on the floor, which had a Porsche emblem. She picked the keys up and asked him, "Oh what kind of Porsche do you have?" She even had the nerve to ask him what his profession is. The little floozy did all this right in front on me, as though I was invisible.

While we were leaving the restaurant she asked him, "Are you going to come back and visit us sometime?" By then I was ready to show her what my middle finger looked like.

The nerve of her. For all she knew, he and I could have been a married couple, dining there for dinner.

That's not flirting - that's just being desperate and out of control and lacking in social skills.

beckski,

Do you want comments on your experience or flirting in general ?

Ah you should have trailed her!! [j/k obv.] but seriously the cheek!

I'm sure it only highlighted even more how classy you were :) She showed herself up!

I agree with Osiol, that's not flirting! Flirting is too fun to get out of control - I love it :)

I think I'd like to hear about similar situations, that others may have experienced in general. In addition, any advice one can offer for others, on how to handle these type of circumstances.

Nothing.

Alright, I shall summarise.

Imagine that the woman in your story actually successfully nicked your date off you.

Right!!! I'll pay someone a dollar to tell me what he's hiding!

That'd be okay, since we were never in a serious relationship. Anyway, I know I'm much more attractive and more educated than her. The list goes on...

He lives out of state. It was just a casual date.

He wasn't interested in her at all. She was very average-looking and extremely skinny. She couldn't have weighed more than 100 pounds, while wet!

So you'd be happy if your date dumped you in the restaurant and hiked it home with the waitress???

I don't think so!

Nope. Change of melody.

You were still annoyed enough with her to start with.
If your date had left with her and not with you, I imagine I might have heard you from this side of the Atlantic.

I always carry my cell phone for emergency. There's taxi cabs too. If a man is a dog, then he's not worthwhile. He didn't happen to act like a dog, like some men. He never once flirted back with the unclassy waitress; he was interested in me.

Indeed I was annoyed by her very unprofessional, disgusting behavior. He and I were there together on an elegant dinner date.

Unfortunately, according to your story, this guy did nothing to dissuade her, therefore, part of him must have been interested. You know, he might have said "sorry I'm with this lady".

This happened last year and it's almost November of this year so enough happened that night to leave it festering within you...

Yes, it happened last year. As I stated to Wroclaw, I'm interested in hearing if other people have encountered similar situations, and how they've dealt with the circumstances. The type of scenario doesn't matter if it happened over 100 years ago.

Obviously not so elegant a place if the waitresses were allowed to flirt. Upper class places don't really allow that...

I agree. Unfortunately snakes work in many different job professions.

Exactly...

a fish that's already taken one bait?

think Bubba was onto something different but a fish that doesn't find the first bait tasty enough moves onto the next...

I realise now. I hadn't read the last couple of posts.

This thread is not about flirting getting out of control.
No-one has actually flirted.
Yet.
