Today, I was at work when a cute guy came up to me and said he liked my shirt. In a desperate attempt to say something back, I said, "Thanks, I like your shoelaces." FML

Your gaze should have been directed about two feet higher

That's actually a funny and cute comment, all in one. If anything, it must have made him smile. :) Don't sweat it, Op. We all have our tongue-tied moments. This one's just yours. ;)

Yea, I'm sure it would be very exciting for him if she said "I like your dick"

20- I think it would be awkward if she said that. How would she know what his dick looks like?

24- I think 20 was going for sarcasm. Damn you Internet sarcasm why must you sound so literal?!

She doesn't have to know, if questioned about it she can say "I like anyone who has a dick"... No? Oh well, who knows? Maybe he has a shoelace fetish and it's all gooooooodd... Tie 'em to the bedpost instead of white silk scarves eh?

What an awesome compliment that I would have popped a boner in front of you.

I think he meant OP should've complimented him on his pants.

Yea... I'm only into a girl if their shoelaces are sexy.

^ A-G-L-E-T, Don't forget it!

It's the something something YEAH YEAH YEAH.

Sounds like OPs all tied up

94- your picture makes that comment so much better

68 - We're gonna tie the world together!

yes that would be less awkward

And her tongue was tied with shoelaces, apparently.

^ Apparently, Geli. :) I do suspect that shoelaces were the first thing off of the tip of her tongue as, she describes this guy as cute, and seeing how she flusters easy, I picture her being a little bashful and glancing down at his feet a lot. The subconscious part of her brain did the rest. ;) Just my guess.

48- that seems like a very plausible situation.

Then he said want to f**k.

Yeah, I've said similar things. Thanks for the giggle, and I hope he was nice about it.

Did he have cool shoelaces?

actually, he had on sandals...

Maybe they were very trippy.

trippy!! yes! oh, I love a good pun :)

A-G-L-E-T don't forget it! We all know she was looking at the aglets, she was baffled by their awesomeness and fuctionality.

Velcro all the way

Were they nice shoelaces?

Why are you always pissed off?

Because 4 has a face only a mother can love

Well then 4 is in luck. This world is crawling with mothers!!

No, that is his reaction to whatever OP replies with...

Wrong, I'm too lazy to switch my profile picture.

yeah he stole them from the president

If he was cute, then you should've said: "Thanks, I like your face."

Cue an even more embarrassing fml.

what would you think if you said some dude had a nice shirt and he said "nice face"

Did his shoes even have shoe laces?

This fml should've ended "which is when I realized he was wearing slip-ons"

or those slip on vans

Or high heeled pumps

Lol and they were plain and white right

Well, that just makes you quirky, like Summer Glau. Work that angle, OP!

Hey, laces are important. I appreciate few things more than a compliment on my laces. :)

Lama!!! Is that a lama? I fucking love lamas!!

Hey guys, I found Carl Wheezer on FML!

I'm sorry to dissapoint, but it's an alpaca. They're super soft.

shoelaces are all women look for in a guy!
