1. Happened to you, and how often?
More times than I can count. I’m a straight male and have been getting hit on by men since I was in college (I’m over 40 now). It’s quite the running joke to my wife. I don’t think I do anything to necessarily attract men- as far as I know I don’t come across as gay bait or anything, not effeminate, don’t look like the stereotypical young hairless hottie, etc. Even the other day, I was walking down the sidewalk at the shopping mall across the street from my office and a guy drove by with his passenger window open, gave me a wolf whistle, and slowly drove off as he watched me in the rear view. There was nobody else on the sidewalk at the time. I was dressed in khakis and a button-down shirt.
2. Freaked out, or taken as a compliment?
Compliment. If someone finds me attractive, male or female, it’s always a bit of an ego boost.
3. Ever been the person “hitting on” someone who is into the other gender than you assumed?
4. Want to share your story?
None are that noteworthy.
