If there is one thing that gets under my skin when guys say it, it very well could be the uttering of “can I buy you a drink?” or one of it’s variants.

What you say: “Can I buy you a drink?”

What she hears: “Can I buy you a drink? I mean, please?

I realize that you’re far too good to actually talk to me, however, if you actually allowed me to spend money on you it would bring me great pleasure.”
