    A Wink And A Smile Can Make One's Day

    I believe that a wink and a smile can go a long way to making someone's day. It's a mild diversion from the complexities of life and it's certainly not doing any harm, particularly to the recipient, and that's as far as it will ever go with me. Now that I have been married for a...

    I just went out to walk my dog around the

    apartment complex one last time before bed, and I passed by an apt with awesome Halloween lights. They just so happen to be on their balcony so I yell up to them (since they are on the 3rd floor) "I love y'all's Halloween lights" and the guy leans over the railing and yells back...

    Are we saying a lingering glance,

    a wink in a crowded bar? A text message strewn with innuendo with a partner? Or sharing erotic stories and or pictures with strangers?

    Many people think that flirting is bad.

    But there are plenty good reasons to flirt. People may judge you for this. But who cares? Flirting is a carefree and fun way to interact with people.

    Esteem Building Through Smiles

    that she was really pretty. (It was the first time I ever talked to her) And she said, "thank u *giggles* I mean, that made my day" So don't feel bad to compliment that one special person you feel strong for. I know it's scary, but it goes well (just compliment them, don't...

    I am useless at flirting,

    I have had friends point this out to me more than once. Maybe it is because I am am introvert. My attempts to flirt always ended badly. People that have this knack for flirting, is there a technique learned? Have you been taught ? Does it come natural to you ?

    While I really do enjoy flirting,

    I can't just hit on random girls like most guys do. I have to see something about them that sparks an interest and I need to know just enough about them to know what will make them laugh and smile. Sometimes 30 seconds conversation is enough to start flirting a bit, but I just...

    Badinage

    I'm working at the moment on a series of designs I call 'Badinage' (Flirtation). My inspiration is the fact that men are becoming more difficult to both 'entrap' and interest. Especially with the advent of social networking sites where men can go on cam with a girl, and they can...

    When a woman smiles and gives you a second look.

    When she perks up when you say hi. It gets my heart pumping and puts a smile on my face for the rest of the day.

    I agree that it certainly can,

    but it has to come from the right person, or be projected onto the right person. If some strange person who gives me the creeps tries to flirt with me, I'll feel uncomfortable. Not happy, because I wouldn't enjoy it. But if the person I have my eye on flirts with me... then yes...
