    I can't flirt to save my life,

    I'm just too awkward or sometimes I just don't realize when a guy is flirting with me. Earlier this week a fairly good looking guy approached me, we started talking and I guess I got nervous so out of nowhere I blurted out " Yeah apples are niceee." Lmao we weren't even talking...

    The Awkward One

    I have really low (justified) self esteem and when someone flirts with me I freak out cause it's such a rarity. I am also kinda socially awkward around guys I like and I tend to form loads of pally relationships where people like me because they thing I'm 'friendly' and 'nice...

    I am so terrible at flirting.

    If I can get up enough courage to talk to them in the first place, they just think I am being friendly like I am to everyone. And I just get so nervous to imply that I am attracted to them because I am worried that I will get an "ew" that I wimp out. Mind you, this is only if I...

    When guys hit on me I feel like hiding.

    I usually come across as cold because I don't even try to flirt back, if I tried I would make a huge fool out of myself haha . Oh well, take it or leave it it's a part of my personality I guess.

    Like everyone here, I don't know how to flirt,

    so I kind of use an alternative. Lately I'd been reading about random psychology ****, including body language, and it seemed a bit pretentious all the conclusions that could be drawn from it. Anyway, a tactic I really got interested in to build rapport was mirroring. And I mean...

    Maybe it's the fact that not a lot of guys talk

    to me but I'm terrible at it. I've asked for people's help but they just tell me it should come naturally. If I try to flirt I bet I would look very stupid hehehe.

    So today in college I met this really cute guy!

    But I have social anxiety so I was a little nervous about it, so what was my ingenious plan to grab his attention? To write a little note saying "do you like me?" With a tick box for yes and one for no, sweet right?... So he ticked yes and we started chatting, it seemed to be...

    I had to pretend to flirt with a guy

    for a project when I was in high school. We filmed the whole thing. We didn't have any guys in our group so we recruited a random guy from our school. My "flirting" consisted of me touching his arm and asking him if he worked out. I cringe just thinking about it.

    I've been told I'm not a flirt.

    I hadn't cared for it growing up but now as an adult in a social world I find myself wishing I knew how to respond to flirting I receive from men. I draw blanks when men talk sweet to me.

    I Don't Know How To Flirt

    Ever since I was young, I've had this social ineptitude.  I don't know how to flirt, and I don't know how to read the cues that a male likes me.   When I was in school, boys would pick on me or tease, make little suggestive comments or even steal my pencils. ...
