Way back in the day before I started coaching women, I used to coach men and help them build their confidence, learn how to connect and flirt with women, and find a long-lasting relationship.

So, believe me when I say I’ve seen a rainbow of things in my time as a dating coach. Scratch that. I’ve seen it ALL.

And when it comes down to it, men never really grow up. We might talk a big game, but at heart, we’re all a bunch of scared little boys running around just trying to get amazing women like you to like us.

This is especially true when a man is flirting with you.

And depending on how nervous he is, things can get real awkward real fast.

So, how do you know when a guy is awkwardly flirting with you or just being an a**hole?

Here are 4 awkward signs he’s flirting.

So next time you find yourself on the receiving end of these totally awkward flirting moves, try and give the guy a break (as long as he’s not inappropriate or creepy).

Empathize with him. Call him out if he goes too far. And if you’re kind of into him too, SAVE THIS GUY already and start flirting back!

You’ve got to remember; you ladies are way more mature, sophisticated and subtle creatures than us guys. You race ahead of us in middle school, and we NEVER catch up. It’s like we’re still trying to finish a race that you won decades ago.

I’d love to know the most awkward thing a guy has said or done to you while trying (and epically failing) to flirt.

Great video! Funny and definitely educational. As for this sexy single lady, haha; if a guy asks me a question, I tend to look up and away when I answer (nervous) and I laugh a lot!

I ignore the guy. Not in a rude way, but just so that I can visually see who he is, what he’s doing, how he’s acting. If he’s drinking too much, or too loud, he is OUT. It would be refreshing to see a man just “be himself”.

I once had a guy come up to me at the bar, while I was ordering a drink and said, ” you know what they say, thick thighs save lives”. LOL!!!

Oh. Flirting? Is that what that was? That explains a great deal. I’m very petite and guys think it’s hilarious to make fun of my height. I didn’t get the joke. I took it as a thinly veiled threat. Or at least really creepy.

I never really knew it before now, Adam, but a guy that I have been head over heels for playfully makes fun of me, in a good way though. He’ll playfully bring up things I have said and say it in context when he would see me. He says he is not interested in me but remembers everything I have said to him. He’ll continuously tell me everything in conversation I have said to him. He listened to everything I said very attentively. He always will bring up funny things I have said that in a way seems as though… Read more »

Honestly, I havent noticed as it’s been many years since I’ve done the dating thing. And in last five years, I havent dated much as I devoted myself to my company.

I am 75 years old…younger than that in looks and actions….haven’t dated in about 20 years…but would like to start again now! My problem is…sometimes I am attracted to guys somewhat younger than me…and am not sure if they are flirting with me or just being nice to the sweet “older lady” !!!

I laugh a lot and do the hands thing too but thats mainly if I’m nervous and doesn’t necessarily mean I’m interested. I actually tend to be more stand off fish with the guys I actually am interested in and more flirty with the ones I’m not. I need to work on that lol
