power flirting

I got this in a message today, from someone who means well:

...Worried that you
could get yourself into a situation where your flirting could be
perceived by someone else as an assault...


Okay, I could conceive where unwanted flirting could be considered as harassment, but assault??

I like to flirt. Or I used to-- I'm a little more aloof these days. But when did I ever cross the line so badly that I could be taken as potentially harmful or dangerous?

I'm not a stalker. I don't follow women around. I may smile and say hi, or joke with them if I feel that they are open to it, but I haven't ever considered that I was being anything more than occasionally inappropriate. And I have crossed that line on a couple of occasions-- but when I have become aware of it, I have apologized profusely and made sure that they new that I meant no offense.

Cripes, do I need a disclaimer before every human interaction?

Now I'm paranoid.

...and your occasional Aqualung-like behavior...




Sitting on the park bench
Eyeing little girls with bad intent
Snot was running down his nose
Greasy fingers, wearing shabby clothes...

Jeez! "Assault"?!?

Puh-leez.

You can feel free to assault me all you want. But assault Monte once in a while too, or he'll feel lonely.
