Is this creepy?

Joking with guy on a dating app about some exercise I’m doing and said I was practising my high kicks... he then added “don’t forget to stretch before, don’t want you to pull your groin!” Then random chit chat. Ew. Otherwise he has seemed fine! How do I reply? Red flag?

Not creepy. Just truth. Do you have a problem with the word groin?

Thecabbageassasin Fri 05-Apr-19 22:34:48

Erm no...just flirty.

Errr what’s wrong with that? It’s good advice.

Is he a runner or does he do a sport? He just seems to know what he’s talking about.

To be honest telling him you were doing high kicks was a bit weird!

That’s just flirting on a dating app. You’re on there to get into a sexual relationship with someone, no? Not like he sidled up to you in the office while you were at the copier.

Groin is not a flirty word though. If he is used to running or exercise then its just part of his vocab.

Having done exactly that when kickboxing training back in the Dark Ages and felt a really weird popping sensation in there before limping for the next six weeks, I'd probably say something about being careful not to do yourself a mischief, too. I'm just slightly more articulate/not a bloke.

Not creepy or weird. You are definitely over reacting but a bit off for you to say him tou are doing high kicks.

Red flag 😂 always makes me laugh. No it's not weird. If he had said "be careful you might pull a muscle in your fandango and I'd happily kiss it better" then maybe weird. But groin? Come the fuck on snowflake! Lady up.

It wouldn’t be a red flag for me but if you aren’t into it then it’s ok to ease off.

It's called flirting. The thing is though op, if it makes you feel weird then just stop taking to him. Certain men could say that to me and I'd have a laugh. Others could and I'd feel a bit iffy. Depends on their vibe. Keep chatting and see how you feel.

What he should have said,

"Don't go at it too hard, wouldn't want you to pull anything... Unless you'd like a massage after.. ;) ;)"

PresidentHump Fri 05-Apr-19 23:17:48

You brought up the high kicks!

SkintAsASkintThing Fri 05-Apr-19 23:47:36

He's right. I knackered my groin walking up a steep hill too fast.

Worst injury ever shock

lostinshoebiz it’s politically correct mild flirting, so as not to raise too many red flags.

Thecabbageassasin Sat 06-Apr-19 06:48:59

Sorry that was meant for Comedy Central.

I suppose your ‘high kicks’ comment could be interpreted in the same way - if you really wanted to find a problem confused

colehawlins Sat 06-Apr-19 07:03:30

MN is strange sometimes grin

talkingjapeneseireallythinkso Sat 06-Apr-19 07:18:06

i wouldn't call that flirting at all, but you did leave yourself open to a potential creepy remark when you mentioned high kicks. he wasn't being creepy just pointing out the obvious of potential muscle strain in the groin.

Bowchicawowow Sat 06-Apr-19 07:19:29

Dear God.

StarlightLady Sat 06-Apr-19 07:19:56

No more creepy than high kicks, surely?

flumpybear Sat 06-Apr-19 07:23:11

You were trying to get a reaction with the high kicks .... you got it ... don't start what you can't handle
