    I was at Target earlier and this cute sales associate was ringing up my items for me. Initially he was acting all friendly and flirty, but as I started to talk more he suddenly became increasingly standoffish and uninterested in the conversation. I feel like most guys are interested in me up until I open my mouth. Truth be told I am kind of awkward and socially anxious so maybe I scare them off. Ruined my day.icon_cry.gif

    Post a recording of your voice. Try to simulate the conversation with the clerk.

    maybe he was just as nervous as you, when e realised you were interested.

    it could be a whole manner of things but without knowing you personally i dont think anyone could offer much constructive advice.

    maybe you could just practice flirting a little. i found flirting a bit with guys that i was less attracted to helped ease my nerves when i was first out. when its someone really sexy/attractive the situation and therefore the outcome/content of your conversation becomes more important and the pressure really doesnt help. if it makes you feel any better i once tried to flirt with a guy at a health food shop, exhagerating my interest in a healthy lifestyle a little to impress him, when my awesome friends walked in brandishing a KFC box and a huge coke for me icon_redface.gif

    good luck

    He was probably straight. A little flirting makes a work day easier and faster.

    Gay voice....if they hear "gay voice" and assume you are gay and they are ignorant...expect them to give the standofish and all a sudden uninterested vibe. I find the gay ones will do it more than the so called str8. I say so called str8 because i don't know who is str8 anymore, married men seem to hit on me all the time.

    I'm sure he either was a, nervous or b, caught on that you liked him and he may not be gay himself. I don't know really but don't sweat it.

    I agree with the others. I too am a bit socially awkward at times but practicing on how to talk to people and stay calm and collected can definitely help.
