Flirting

What do you guys think about flirting?
I always enjoy flirting with girls, even if they've got boyfriends etc. I guess it's really because of some sort of affection, as I don't flirt with girls I don't like. Do you reckon it's OK, even to flirt with good friends that are attached to men?

What do you think it means when women are flirting with you too? Do you think it means it could go further than just flirting?


later,

I usually don't flirt.. but many girls try to flirt with me. Also, I don't and wouldn't flirt with people in close long term relations. Especially my best friend who is in a serious relation for some time.

Sometimes its hard to tell if they;re flirting, it could just be that they are nice. But sometimes its obvious

I'm happily married, and don't want to give any woman even the subtlest hint of flirting...even if it means pretending to ignore that person.

These days, people are too lawsuit-happy. When a 7-yr old kid can get into legal trouble for kissing a girl in school, things are out of control. I worked too hard to keep my job, to lose it over a sexual harrassment lawsuit by a woman who misinterprets a comment or glance from me.

I suppose if I were still single, then at a bar or a club, flirting is a social norm. But outside of that, I don't need (or look for) the hassle.

Geez! I'd be flattered if a gal flirted with me! I have not aged real well, and had to buy a Benz to get a woman to look my way! (Don't tell my wife this! )
I did get caught up in a "situation" at work a couple years ago tho'. She was just having fun, and I took it a little too seriously. Almost ended my marriage. Luckily i'm still married, and still friends with the gal at work. Ya gotta be careful how you come across, and how you interpret others' actions!!

Well,

If the boyfriend is across the state line, and the girl is receptive, at my age (21) it's like "Hey, I don't see a wedding ring....it's all good"

BTW, I do this because I would never have been born if my dad had not done the same in 1976.

Cool When it rains, it pours...

Ok, you got me on my soap box...

Seems as though when I have a steady girl friend, I get flirts/hits all the time. Ususally I'm not the one doing the flirting, either. When I'm unattached (like now) it's like the Gobi desert. The 'Benz angle doesn't help me much, since the ones attracted to that tend to go for the newer ones (women haven't changed much, eh?).

I also notice that flirting usually takes place more often in a target rich environment, like a large city where there are plenty of men with money and the women who seek them. In the country or suburbs, there are ususally far more men than women, and the odds just go against you in the flirting game. Here at Fort Bragg (Fayetteville, NC), there's 66,000 swinging richards from the military and precious few flirting women. The ones who do flirt are usually married or pretending not to be. The ones that are not invariably have kids and lots of mental baggage.

Desirable single women don't waste their time in a town with a bunch of eager G.I. joes who make comparatively crappy money and live in the hood. They're chasing the stockbrokers, businessmen and lawyers in Raleigh.

Flirting is kind of like real estate, I guess. Very dependant upon three things: location, location, and location!

I don't know how this relates to Mercedes Benzes, but what the hell, that's my 2 cents.

Isn't that funny? I think women can smell another woman. It's a competition thing. I think G once said something like, you get your appetite elsewhere but always eat at home.

I think you generate an "aura" of some sort when you currently have a signifcant other...and it's a magnet to other women.

I once asked a lady friend about this one, and she surmised that an attached man gives the appearance of being confident, steady, and most of all secure...three desireable attributes to a woman.

Plus, if you already have a woman, you obviously are appealing to someone. Being unattached is a red flag to many women!

Although I don't flirt, I have noticed that women paid more attention to me once I got married. And many times I don't notice (must be a female radar), but my wife picks up on vibes from other women and notices when there are others vying for attention from me...she loves it! Must be that "I got him and you don't" mentality .

Kuan and G benz,

You all are SOO right about that, when i am in a relationship i get a lot of "prospects" but after a breakup or something i might get none, i guess with women its an all or none deal. Right now i am at an all stage, i got a few to choose from, at least for now.
