“I don’t do flirt,” proclaimed my hairdresser friend while I waited for my haircut.
“What do you mean?” I asked.
“I don’t flirt!”, she responded.
Of course, I knew differently. She love to flirt with me.
Why would she want me to think she didn’t flirt, when she loved to flirt? It probably had something to do with the common conception of flirting.
According to Merriam-Webster, flirting is about showing an attraction to someone in a way that is not to be taken seriously.
But flirting is not necessarily a bad thing.
When a person is flirting, they’re lighthearted and suggestive. Eyes twinkle. Smiles become mischievous. Words are filled with innuendos and double-entendres. The two people involved are having fun. The couple seems to orbit each other in a playful dance of words and non-verbal expressions.
Flirting can healthy for your relationship.
- It lets you play together.
- It allows you to be provocative and safe at the same time.
- It gives both of you an opportunity to let down your guard and enjoy the moment of closeness.
Two cautions when you flirt with your sweetheart.
- Keep it playful, and
- Don’t start flirting only as a means to obtain physical intimacy.
If you haven’t flirted with your sweetheart recently, it’s time to let down your guard, brush up your skills and sometime in the next three days flirt with your sweetheart. It’ll be so cheesy you both may end up giggling like teenagers. Have fun! And tell me about it. Robert
