Example 2:
At GDC, this guy came up to me, every time he saw me. He’d start an awkward conversation, often by giving me a compliment, and I couldn’t really tell what he wanted but I guessed he was hitting on me. During the 7th time he came up to me, I mentioned that I had a boyfriend. He was surprised for second, and then explained that didn’t want to hit on me, but that he really liked my games and was inspired by them. We actually had a really nice long conversation and he gave some good feedback on what I was working on at that time.
