When you turn 35, you should win an itemized list of all the people you didn’t realize were flirting with you in your 20s.

Isn’t that just the natural result of hitting 35?
I clearly remember suddenly realising that the girl who went back to student dormitory to try my collection of different teas might not have been *100%* focused on tea.

Had a girl say she wanted to go home with me after a party. I thought she was offering me a ride so I said “no thanks, I walked here.” And left.

Ha! Wait until you turn 45. All those same people will contact you on Facebook.

My 40s have been an unfolding of this list as I run into people I knew in my twenties and they say things like “I had the biggest crush on you,” and I’m like what am I supposed to do with this information now?

Dude at my husband’s 10 year HS reunion went early. Drunkenly (on stage with a mike) declared his love for a former classmate. She was there. With her husband. And pregnant.

That one dude from college who complimented me once and at the time I thought it was criticism.
In hindsight, IT WAS A COMPLIMENT.

My wife and I were packing boxes and we found a note that someone had written me (when I was single) when I left a job for another state.
At the time I thought it was just friendly, but we re-read it and my wife was like, wow, she was hitting on you.
Had. No. Idea.

I have a list of people I thought were flirting with me in my 20s but for sure were not. Does that count?

You look forward to getting that list for 15 years and then, on your 35th birthday, it’s empty.
