Brotha_D saidWhat is your opinion on approaching a dude while they are working..i.e. retail stores, staff at the gym, the clerk at the post office? Some say don't do it because if dude is working in customer service job and its their job to be nice and they may have no true interest in you, others say if they give you that extra service attention for no real reason and they not making a profit from you it may be some interest...opinions?
I have mixed feelings about this. I really like this guy who works as a barback at this gay bar that I go to. I've talked to him a few times and I'm there quite a lot, so he knows me. I was a little drunk one night and I told him how I felt about him. He was really sweet about it. Now whenever I'm there, he finds some way to remind me of that moment, lol.
So it depends, In my case, it really wasn't that inappropriate. The rules of a gay bar are WAY different than the rules of a run a mill post office. First, this is a place where gay men commune. It is a social environment. It is expected that you will converse with the men who work there on some level. And he knows me as a regular customer. Perhaps if I didn't know him at all, it would have been creepy. Who knows.
So it really, really depends.
