Picking Up Guys In "Straight Places"

Right, so was on the Luas today, and some guy kept staring at me. Took me a glance or three to figure whether he was staring at me or not. He was fairly well dressed and kinda cute so I'm presuming he was staring at me with lustful intent. Freaked the fuck out of me at first, not used to that sort of thing.

By the time I got over the shock he seemed to have lost interest, so I didn't get a chance to eye flirt back!

Got me thinking, do people flirt/pick up guys in "straight" locations/situations, and if so how fo you do it?

Wouldn't mind getting my flirt on, but no idea how to go about it!

I picked up a guy at a training course one I was giving once. It was just a few looks and then got chatting afterwards and went from there. It can be more difficult outside a gay bar because sometimes people just start at other people. I stare at people all the time, boys, girls, old, young whatever. Just cause I cant help it. You cant really take that someone looking at you means they want you. You have to give them a smile or get chatting to them to see what the reaction is.

I'd just like to say many thanks to the beautiful guy in white top outside Tesco a few hours ago who gave me 'The Look'.

'The Look' being, approaching from different directions, noticed him looking at me doe-eyed, he looks away, I keep looking, and just before we pass each other out, he looks at me again out of corner of his eye.

The second glance, out of the corner of the eye, usually registers pretty strong on the gaydar, yeah?

When I was single I used to have a terrible habit of picking up/flirting with blokes in bookshops and at GAA/football matches.

The book shop thing was mainly down to the fact that the atmosphere in there lends itself to conversation.Selecting books seems to spark debate and chat with the usually intelligent/friendly staff in them

The matches seems to be the fact that in that environment it becomes socially acceptable to talk to strangers and have a few jars and one thing leadin to another...

I think flirting with blokes in non queer locations has its pitfalls...even when the other bloke is obviously gay,whos to say that hes out(or single) so Id be cautious
But i always try and talk to strangers wherever I go,not to flirt but because its always surprising how friendly and interesting people are

I always flirting in Whelan's. In the back of my head I'm thinking the straight guy hasn't got a clue what I'm doing and he just thinks I'm being friendly.

I just went through a list of gay couples that I know (in my head)
and I don't think any of them met in a gay bar or other designated gay business or gathering place.

Time to bring it all out into the open?
*actually took this thread title literally,thought it meant picking up people who were locked out of their heads outside gay bars*

I thought it was about smokers who hang around outside the door on the gay bars.

I think the dynamic is changing. Being connected is ubiquitous these days. There are so many online resources for meeting like minded people.
Book stores, libraries, the gym, supermarkets, cloths shopping are seemingly common places which offer opportunities to meet new people. I don't think it has to be a designated gay venue or part of a 'scene'.
It did. Past tense. Times they are a changing. Which is a good thing.

I took it literally too.
It happens a lot. Guys lurk around gay bars at closing time.
They don't have the courage to go in, (or too cheap!) so wait for their 'prey' to come out, usually drunk and not an inhibition in sight. Easy pickings.
