What's that supposed to mean?

  1. Aug 14, 2008 #1
    Yesterday my neighbor came up to me and said she had been talking to the landlady of my apartments and the landlady had said that I'm quite the "romeo." Now I've never hit on the landlady and I've only had one girlfriend the entire time I've lived here so I'm not sure what she was getting at. I don't know if I should stop being too friendly to her, or if I should start being more friendly to her and get some free rent.

    I'd say you're more of a Casanova.

    I wouldn't take it as a negative comment.

    It's interesting that she pays such close attention to your personal business. Is it possible that your landlady could have a crush on you?

    Don't forget, Romeo only had one girlfriend, then he died.

    your landlord is trying to 'set you up' with that neighbor

    I assume your landlady sees you as a noble romantic about to kill yourself...

    Actually thats not true. At the beginning of the story he had a girlfriend, and then he met Juliet. Unless thats what your getting at...

    :rofl: I was thinking the same thing considering it's tribdog. :biggrin:

    Must just be a natural flirt, even if you're not really doing it intentionally.

    Older women often make comments like that about me saying I must get all the ladies and such. I haven't had a girlfriend in years. Of course I've not met many "ladies" either.

    Being a flirt isn't bad, if you are in fact that. :biggrin:

    Killed himself actually. Maybe she wants trib to do that? :confused:

    act casual...

    She's been hiding in your closet...

    It could be that you are a confident, speaker and know how to speak to women. Some women take this skill as a sign that a guy has had alot of experience talking to women...

    Maybe you never considered your landlady as being anything besides a landlord, therefore you felt at ease with her.

    Either that or you play your porn too loudly at night.

    No, I mute my porn.

    I've had people get the wrong idea (that I was flirting) just because I was nice and friendly to them. Maybe it's the same with you, trib? There's this guy in my building who is a part-time actor and I said hello to him in the elevator a couple of times and asked him how his acting was going. He tells my co-worker later that I'm "hot for him" that he can "just tell" this. It's funny because he's not my type at all and now I just feel weird around him. I think some people are just stuck on themselves and want to believe you are flirting even though you're not.
