24 Awkward Ways Women Tried to Hit on Men

Sometimes trying to be sexy just comes off as crazy – which should say something about sexiness, I think. In this AskReddit thread, men share the different ways women thoroughly freaked them out.

1. Ew ew ew!

“I like your shirt, even better when I just touched it with my licked hand.”

2. Gonna nope right outta this one

Sent me pictures of myself through my window from her parked car outside my apartment. The kicker was it was from an unknown number as she was using a third party messaging app.

She thought she was being cute, but it creeped the holy hell out of me.

3. Getting mixed signals here.

Run into a girl I knew at the bar, we get to talking. She asks if I’m single these days, I say yeah. She writes her number on a napkin and says, “Call me this weekend.” Then she leans in, whispers: “I’m gonna make you wish you were never born.”

To this day I still wonder what the hell she meant by that, but damned if I was going to find out…

4. Buckle in for this one

A girl reached out to me on FB who lived in my neighborhood, said she was looking for friends, and asked to meet up. Being new to the hood myself I said sure. We met at a bar and she just had a nasty personality, and complained about everything.

I tried to be nice about having other plans and needing to go, but she followed me. I awkwardly let her tag along to a friend’s house. When we arrived, within ten minutes my friends soured on her and the host pulled me aside and said, you gotta get her out of here.

I offered to drive her back to her house, and when we arrived she asked me to come in. I politely declined, and she she said I could do whatever I wanted to her. I had no desire to do any such thing, so I said thanks but no thanks.

Then she said she wasn’t getting out of the car unless I came inside. After more deliberation I said ok and followed her to her door. She had a picket fence with a gate out front, so as soon as she went through the gate I closed it and ran back to my car.

She started yelling and screaming at me and tried to open the doors, which I had quickly locked. I tried to pull out of the space, but she blocked me in. I backed up onto the curb to get around her, and she pushed in my side mirrors and bent my antenna, screaming obscenities as I peeled out.

5. Points for originality?

“Can I smell your hat?”

cautiously hands over hat

“Oh yeah. Yup. What are you doing Saturday?”

6. To each their own

She said she wanted to milk me. For those asking yes I did let her.


I was at a club with some friends and we were just casually dancing on the floor when a girl came up and joined us. I could tell that she was into me by the way she gave me looks and danced towards me all the time, she wasn’t too bad looking but I just wasn’t that interested in hooking up with someone that night and I also started to feel that something was kinda off about her (she was by herself btw). I was wearing a snapback that night and eventually she pulled the over-used “stealing the boy’s hat to show that I’m interested” move. I didn’t mind it at first, but soon my friends wanted to move on, so I grabbed my hat back from the girl and followed my friends.

10 seconds later she ran up behind me and snatched my hat again and ran off. At this point I’m starting to get irritated. I didn’t run after her but I walked around the crowd and eventually I sneaked up behind her and grabbed the hat back and walked away. She immediately took it back and ran away to another dance floor. This time I ran after her and managed to catch up with her and stop her and I just said “Seriously, just give me back my hat!”

Prior to this moment she was acting all giggly and innocent but when I said that her face just went [wild] and she looked like a demon and she REFUSED to let the hat go. So I yanked it back really hard from her and with the same possessed looking face as before she just flipped me off and walked away.

8. Quintessential high school nerd behavior

In high school I played in the marching band, and before practice everyone hung out in the music classroom. I’m just hanging out in my chair, and out of nowhere some girl sits in my lap, puts her hand on my cheek and whispers, “I choose you!” She said it like Ash said it to Pikachu so that threw me off.

Also she had a cheeto in her hand like a cigar which threw me off. I didn’t know what to say but I got a strong urge to eat cheetos so I got a bag from the vending machine. Man they were good. They were the spicy kind too!
