Answer . To be 'flipped off' means to have some display the finger to you. This is a non-verbal communication meaning 'screw you.'
Flipping people off, is an obscene hand gesture, used to insult people, which dates back to Ancient Rome/Greece. Who invented it is not known. See related link..
Precedent has been set down since the early 70s stating that profanity is in fact covered under the First Amendment. . Police try to cite people that use profanity with disor…derly conduct charges. These charges are unconstitutional and most law enforcement agencies have training that specifies obscene gestures and language do not qualify as disorderly conduct. . Law enforcement agencies are regularly sued, and settle, when erroneous citations for disorderly conduct based on profane language and gestures are contested in court.
Baloney History (The Lighter Side of History) The practice began as far back as Homo Erectus who spent a great deal of their time flipping off Homo Habilus, who in turn… spent a great deal of their time flipping off Homo Neanderthalis. We know this because archeologist's have spent a great deal of time uncovering and digging up the bones of these ancient people and a great many of them were found with their left or in the case of the Neanderthals, their right hand clearly formed where the middle finger is prostrate while the remaining fingers curled up. This could all just be coincidental but archeologist's are convinced it was the time honored tradition of flipping off your neighbor. It has been a controversial issue because many archeologist's are fully aware of the fact, that while Fred Flinstone may have had one of those golf cart looking cars, most cavemen did not have cars and so most likely didn't get stuck in traffic or even cut off by some rude driver who's talking on his cell phone. There are many people who believe that it was the cook for Ol' King Cole who began the practice of flipping off, because he's the one who gave ol' King Cole the bird. Four and twenty blackbirds, to be exact, baked in a pie. But, this is clearly not true because there is no historical evidence that ol King Cole ever existed.
You don't obviously
It depends on your job. Some bosses don't care like maybe at a construction site while at other jobs you could be fired for so much as saying 'crap'.
I herd that in japan you put up your thumb. In china the pinky's up. American I bet you know. German you pull your pants down. ( leave your underwear up)
Despite Wikipedia's claim that "flipping off" originated in Rome with the ' digitus impudicus ' (impudent finger), "flipping off" actually originated in the several wars betwe…en Britain and France. The battle field was a constant struggle for either side to gain an advantage, until the British developed the Longbow. With the Longbow British Archers could now kill off French soldiers from about 180 - 200 meters away! Now, when a British Archer was captured by the French they would have their middle finger cut off, rendering them useless as an archer. So, the hand gesture of "flipping off" originates from escaped British soldiers as a way to taunt the French , as if to say "I still have my middle finger, take THAT!"

Well, it depends on why he was flipping you off. But I highly doubt you could find out if a guy likes you if just by that let alone love you.
You can say... "Is that a threat or an offer?" "Maybe later! Haha that was a funny joke.." or "I reject that offer." That's just my opinion haha :)
