So how did he understand?
You spoke English , he responded accordingly. He didn't know whether you were flirting or not, he just gave you the answer he would give, Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Don't be fooled and don't think that just because you WANT guys to understand means they do. 99% of the time, they don't get it. Just trust me on this one.
