The Most Inappropriate Times Men Asked Women Out

List RulesVote up the date proposals that deserve a resounding 'no way, dude.'

Approaching someone to ask them out on a date can often be awkward - especially if you use a cheesy pickup line – but there are times when it's flat-out inappropriate. Some people are bold enough to ask women out during funerals, at work, or even in the maternity ward. These are some of the most inappropriate times men came up to women hoping to walk away with a date.

    A Paramedic Who Saw Her In A Trauma Unit Asked Her Out

    From Reddit user /u/OnATurningCarousel:

    I came with my grandfather to the trauma unit of our local hospital.

    The guy I kinda know from my partying era (but never showed any interest in) was a paramedic there. He messaged me through FB and asked me why I "didn't take off my coat and give them something to look at" and asked me if I wanted to have sex in the ambulance.

    Beyond gross and absolutely inappropriate.

    Edit: how I got out of the situation: I told him I would report him to his supervisor. This crossed all limits.

    Baby Daddies At The Maternity Ward Asked The Receptionist Out

    From Reddit user /u/Joonami:

    I work the reception desk on a maternity ward in a hospital. Plenty of baby daddies find my customer service demeanor to be a green light for their affections.

    He Asked Her For Gas Money, Then A Date, At A Gas Station

    From Reddit user /u/Lavender_Pixie:

    I'm not sure if a gas station qualifies as an inappropriate place, per se, but the way this happened seemed very inappropriate at the time.

    A man walked up to me while I was busy holding the pump, which is already kind of an uncomfortable spot to be in (especially at night), and at first he just asked for gas money. OK, no big deal. It happens. I told him I had no cash, and he went back to his (very nice, new-looking) truck. I thought it was a bit weird, but continued pumping my gas and minding my own business.

    Less than 30 seconds later, he walked back up to me, told me I was really beautiful, asked if he could at least get my number, and started begging me to go on a date with him. He said that he would pay me money for a date (even though he JUST asked for gas money). First it was $500, and then it escalated to $1,000 after I said I wasn't interested. He begged one more time, "Just one date, please, just go on one date with me."

    I gave him a final, resounding "NO," finished pumping my gas, and hurriedly climbed back in my car to leave.

    The situation was just very uncomfortable, and I don't particularly like being approached when I'm in a vulnerable situation (pump in hand, on the other side of my car from the driver's side door, etc.).

    Ultimately, I learned that talking loudly, saying "NO" with some force, and looking them in the eyes tends to help in escaping the situation. If I had been more timid and tried to be too "nice," I have a feeling it would've been a lot harder to get rid of him.

    Her Uber Passenger Asked Her Out

    From Reddit user /u/kayaking_gnome:

    So I’m a young female Uber driver and I have the same problem but on the other end. I’ll pick up drunk guys and they’ll be so inappropriate with me; it’s really frustrating. I had to start carrying pepper spray at night after one guy had me drive him out to the middle of nowhere and then wouldn’t get out of my car. I’ve also had guys give me low star ratings because I wouldn’t give them my number.
