Not really. Unless "that much"
involved punching or something.
Actually, what happened was a guy sort of made a pass at me (nothing overt, just started up a conversation, then threw in a compliment to gauge my reaction), and after he left, an acquaintance of mine that had been standing there got all squicked out and went off about how he would never put up with that. And this was downtown at night, where all the bars are (as in, where people, including gay ones, go out to meet, and perhaps bang, receptive strangers).
I suppose "that much
" is rather ambiguous, but if it makes you significantly more uncomfortable than an equivalent interaction with an opposite-sex individual that you just aren't attracted to, you may want to examine your feelings.

Today I just went home to work on my project, because even if I get more distracted at home, they were making me nuts.
Ask the next one for help with [really difficult problem you know how to solve but he wouldn't], and go on to say "I've already figured out [bla bla bla (casually demonstrating your superior knowledge)]..." Rinse and repeat as necessary. (I used to do that when people would offer me help in Calc II just because I was a long-haired English major. Always hilarious.)
