OMG UPDATE: Hey I just met you and this is crazy, but write a missed connection and submit it maybe?

MISSED CONNECTION: I'd like to file a bug report.

The spec for `return_flirt()` *clearly* specifies that an atomic check for `has_significant_other()` must be performed before any `flirt()` action may be returned. But your implementation was clearly non-compliant; you proceeded without failure but a manual check later in the week returned True! If you're not careful with this kind of thing, you could easily cause a TOCTOU race cond, and I guess my feels spun. :( Marked: severity = medium

  1. I am sorry op, but flirting is fun and has nothing to do with your availability. Flirting is a fun and innocent way to engage someone you find attractive. If you get huffy that they have an so that is your problem and no fault of theirs.

    Look at it this way. Did you have a good time? Did you like them? Do you want to do it again? Then go have your fun, but remember to respect the boundary of their relationship.

    1. Having your fun is in direct violation of respecting the boundary of the relationship in this case. How about the flirter in question respects the boundaries of the relationship HIMSELF the next time. +1 for OP

  2. If a woman was doing the same thing as the guy OP described, she'd be called a "tease" and would be accused of leading you on. It's not unreasonable to want to be able to date people you enjoy flirting with, and some people are obviously uncomfortable flirting with taken people. I think that's perfectly respectable, no need for OP to "lighten up" or something.

    Besides, this post is adorable.
