12 Of The Worst Times People Flirted On Social Media

I can’t say for sure, but I am almost positive that one of the very worst ways to flirt is by doing it in public. You know, like, asking for someone’s number on a crowded subway car. Or whispering sweet nothings in bae’s ear while in a busy, well-lit, family restaurant. Or making out with someone in school, during school hours, in front of a locker that is not yours. (That’s happened to everyone, right?) Then, of course, there is flirting on social media.

This is the worst kind of flirting, I think, because it can come in so many forms–writing on someone’s Facebook wall, leaving a steamy Instagram comment, @-ing your crush on Twitter–and, unless you’ve got some extra-savvy guerilla screenshot-deleting tactics, the evidence of the flirtation will most likely live on in perpetuity. Now, this is bad for the people who flirt online! But it is so very good for the rest of us, because, when it is preserved, the results are pretty great. So, check out these truly disastrous, cringeworthy examples of people flirting on social media:
