Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Jennifer Lawrence may not usually go on dates, but on last night's episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, she finally did. With Seth Meyers. During the show taping.

In what is perhaps the most sexually tense, giggly, and light touching packed segment of late night television history, Jennifer Lawrence starts off the show by revealing that years ago, when she hosted Saturday Night Live, she was planning to ask Seth Meyers on a date. Shortly thereafter, Lawrence eventually found out that he was already engaged to his now wife. Seth Meyers eats up every second of the retelling.

"You were a wonderful host," he says. Then, this happened:

What have we learned about flirting here? Hide compliments in good-natured jokes. Tell a secret. Find an excuse to touch the other person. Smile.

Watch the rest, if you can even stand the tension, below.
