    People never believe me

    when I tell them I flirt unknowingly but it is true. It just comes naturally to some people and is just really difficult for others. I think the key is not caring what the other person may think or say. Just say and do whatever you feel like and they can take it in a positive...

    It's Automatic, I Guess

    Aside from flirting verbally, I have been told by a few women that I have "bedroom eyes," so that I tend to look like I'm flirting even though I may not be trying to be. My W has seen it on a few occasions and I have to tell her that it was unintentional. She seems to...

    I Flirt All The Time. I'M Aware After It'S Happened

    I Adore beautiful woman with a great figure. If they chat back to me because of my Nordic looks, pale blue eyes, fair features, I'm not Steve McQueen. Heavy eyebrows indicate to me, that she is hirsute. Do you fit the bill? Do you want to chat???

    The Line Between Friendliness And Flirting

    I'm honestly not sure where it is! I feel guilty if somebody mistakes my out going attitude or friendliness for flirting. I talk to everyone and am really open and talkative. I'll talk to anyone who can keep up a conversation! That being said, alot of the time its mistaken for...

    and she rejected me because all the other girls thought I was flirting with them. I've just always have had an involuntary tendency to stare into other's eyes.

    When I trust a guy friend, I will talk to him just like I do my girl friends. I show my stupid sense of humor, and try to make him laugh. Apparently with the opposite sex that is called flirting. I've upset my husband by doing that before, and when he told me I was really...

    I flirt all the time when I talk to girls. I only realise it when the girls gets too shy and become red or when I feel the looks of other people around. This also gives a lot of girl the impression that I want to be with them while I just want a little bit of friendship. That is...
