Sometimes beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and sometimes beauty is in the eye of the beer holder.... laughing

Okay, I'll start. Hopefully I'm not pushing the envelope too far, eyebrow but I think when there is a cute guy around NOT flirting would be an occasion of sin because it would be a sin not to let him know how cute he is. wink Is that flirty enough?

But seriously, I have noticed since I have been in these forums that there is for the most part a decided lack of flirting in here. I was just surprised, that's all. It broke my stereotype of what a forum on a dating site might be like. Perhaps it is an indication of the respect that persons have for one another here. But at the same time, a little more flirting wouldn't hurt! Perhaps if people flirted more in the forums there would be more matching and emoting (electronically) going on!

That's not "flirting", that's an empty-headed suppilation intended to motivate you to act.


"Flirting" isn't a process, it's the manner and tone in which you communicate directly with another. It's in your words, mannerisms, facial expressions, and body language. It's all-encompassing. In a way it's a platonic type of snuggling with a potential mate without the actual physical contact. If you understand that concept then you'll understand what flirting really is.


The most important thing though... the minute you make a concerted effort to flirt you have already failed. Like good comedy, it has to come naturally and from within. "Worked" comedy is hardly humorous... "worked" flirting isn't much better.


Be yourself. Nothing will ever be more attractive to a man than that. biggrin

Hmm. So was my previous post in this thread an example of an "empty-headed suppilation"? (and did you mean "supplication"?)

Some killjoys will descend on this thread to remind you that innocent flirtation is an occasion of sin. Take that in whatever manner you like.


So I don't get hauled out by the ear, please note that flirtation must take place between people eligible to marry and be carried on in a manner which is not sexual. OK Chastity Squad - are you happy now?

David, are you acting up again laughing wink Finally, a thread I can relate to. Girls must Battling eyelashes and men must Gone Fishing! It's all part of God's plan biggrin


OK, no killjoys please, us kids are having fun!

I am at home sick today and I've love to start a conversation! Is there anything wrong with flirting? What exactly is considered flirting? What effect does flirting have on men? (just wondering!) If you thought "this man/woman is flirting with me," what would they be doing? Are there times when flirting is acceptable?

--hide--

Hello Kristen! I hope you begin to feel better very soon, so you get out here and continue flirting with the gents. biggrin

I would say, no, absolutely not - there is nothing wrong with flirting. Sending a wink, giving a compliment, batting your eyelashes, yes, even giving a guy a light whack on the arm (If you've ever seen "Hitch," he tells guys that getting hit on the arm is a good thing - lol) are all forms of flirting, and I don't think any of us flirt the same way. Just be who are you are, and watch your own fliratitious self emerge and charm the men off their feet. shhh
