The Worst Places to Shoot Your Shot

Everything has a time and a place, even when it comes to flirting. For example, hitting on someone who's alone at a gas station at 10pm mayyyy not be the best place to introduce yourself. So if you need help deciphering when and where to shoot your shot (or just want a good laugh) below is a compilation of locations deemed "the worst places to get hit on."

Who doesn't love a little flirting action? Those magic moments can turn any stranger into someone special. However, sometimes Cupid shoots his bow at the worst times.

Don't get me wrong, some of the best-laid plans are annoying, funny, uncomfortable, or sometimes even downright scary.

But there is a time and a place for everything.
Especially when flirting.

When shooting your shot it's always important to put yourself in the other person's shoes. You may not realize it, but you could be making the other person feel uncomfortable or even unsafe. That's never a good thing, especially when it comes to flirting. To avoid apprehension, it's important to take into account the time and place when you decide to shoot your shot. The location is just as important as what you say.

Here's a little quiz to test your knowledge....

Which is a better scenario to hit on a cutie you see?

A. At a bar by sending a drink their way

B. While they're going for a run, you pull your car over to compliment them

Obviously, the answer is A. At a bar, you're in a public, safe, and friendly atmosphere whereas getting stalked on a run can make someone feel like they're literally about to be murdered...The reason for this "quiz" is to put into perspective the impact a location can have upon the success of a flirt. Although the way you shoot your shot is important, the location is just as critical.
