A Wink And A Smile Can Make One's DayI 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 number of years, I rarely engage as I did in my single days, but on occasion I may see a man who catches my eye, or I may wish to amuse myself and there I go again with a wink and a smile.
It tickles me a bit is when I encounter someone who looks surprised like, "What...wait, was she winking at me?" Then he may look away, but eventually, I'll see a hint of a smile and know he was really flattered and that it made his day. I know the feeling because I have also been caught off guard. Then there are times the both of us are right in sync -- a quick wink and a smile before going our separate ways. Oh yes, there have been a few times I've had to creatively excuse my actions to someone bold enough to pursue. That's interesting.
Of course, this brings into question is mild flirting right if one is married, or in a committed relationship. The answer to that question is clearly no, but it's still pleasant past time I enjoy from time to time. (wink)
