According to some (see here, here, and here), flirting with a male bartender or male patrons results in Larry’s death in the first game of the series. However, lists and videos of all available deaths or ways to fail in the game do not list this as a possibility.
The only confirmed case of flirting with a male character resulting in a “game over” we could find is in Leisure Suit Larry 6. If Larry flirts with Gary the towel attendant, the game ends with the following screen. You can see the full scene in this video (at about 2:30).
