How exactly am I supposed to respond when men make inappropriate or suggestive remarks to me?

Exhibit A:

Guy: "What kind of chapstick is that?"
Me: "It's called Kiss My Face."
Guy: "You'd better be careful about saying that, I might take you seriously."

Um...I just met you. That's creepy.

Exhibit B:

Guy: "I bet girls get angry when guys stare at their boobs."
Me: "Ummm....sometimes. Depends on how obvious you're being."
Guy: "The whole time I'm talking to you I have to tell myself not to stare. But really I'd rather stare at your legs than your boobs anyway."

Um...I thought we were just friends. I don't know what to do with that.

Ok perhaps that's a bit much to put out there on the blog. But those are two actual conversations I had this week. And I am still puzzling over what the right response is in those situations. I'm just sayin'....

sometimes our filters break and we say what we are actually thinking and that is NEVER a good thing when talking to ladies. It's another case of you say you want to know what we are thinking but in reality you would be a bit horrified if you did know

I think I would probably say nothing and just scrunch my face up in an expression that says, "You are a freak, and that was not appreciated. Weirdo." I don't know if that's the suggested response, just what I imagine myself doing.

you could just say " I know, I'm hot, huh?" that leaves HIM in the position of not knowing what to say.


"my mom always told me to beware of guys that talk like that to girls"
