I was at a party, sitting on a couch. A girl I know comes over, sits down and cuddles up to me. After about ten seconds like this, she says "I wish 'Robert' were here". I'm confused, because it's "Robert"'s party. I go "Huh?" and she replies "I wish 'Robert' were right here" and points at me.

"Robert" is my brother.

I wasn't upset, though I think I said something like "that hurts". I've actually been laughing about it ever since, it's too much like a scene out of a bad sitcom.

EDIT: If the quotes don't make it clear, "Robert" is not actually my brother's name.

Similar premise, entirely different outcome. Was once at a friends party and was fairly drunk and sitting down, see a very cute girl whom I had never seen before walk in and I go on my with conversation. Sometime later that night she literally fell onto my lap and stayed there for some time, ended up talking about doing all that fun stuff. About three weeks later we were dating. And that's the story of meeting my last ex-girlfriend.

Man, that's harsh. Hope you don't mind me giggling about it.

Not at all, it's hilarious. I think she was just drunk, lonely, and didn't know how to approach the person she actually wanted to be with. Who hasn't been there?

Is that the middle school approach to flirting? Insulting each other?
