I once tried to flirt with a guy in college and knew the guy loved Star Wars. Said something along the lines of “Why don’t we watch all the Star Wars movies together and then not actually watch them ?”
Needless to say, he was NOT into it, but I remained friends with the guy and we had overlapping friend groups and hung out often.
Throughout the years he suffered a few concussions due to rugby, and as a result, he often confused events and overall had a bad memory. We were out at a bar with all his friends and he starts casually talking about some “desperate girl” who “tried to get him to come over by using Star Wars as an excuse to bang!”
All his friends died with laughter.
I sat there, red as a tomato, completely mortified and not saying a word.
