For women, flirting is more natural and less intuitive and men, well, they have to work at it. For all of us, there’s a message of “Wanna play?”
For men, they see flirting as an indication of sexual interest while women think it’s just fun and friendly behavior.
While flirting may lead to a better table or cut of meat and the ability to return an item without hassle, it has a dangerous side. Some people just don’t get the message when one person doesn’t respond positively and flirting can result in harassment, stalking or violence.
Online flirting typically moves at a faster pace with people revealing more of themselves than is safe. Flirting can be addictive since it makes you feel a bit dangerous, alive and vital without actually endangering relationships. So, go ahead and have fun.
Flirt responsibly. You might even try it with your spouse!!
