Guys, there is never a time when something like this is inappropriate. Every woman loves a little special attention. :)


What if you were in the locker room at the gym?

Uh, if the lockerrooms were unisex I wouldn't be there.

And I said IN A NICE WAY.

Richard can't be nice. They removed that switch. He can only be lecherous...:D

One man's flirtatious is another woman's lecherous...

I'd call that being a little extra friendly rather than actually flirting. But that's just me.

I personally love the crest fallen look guys around here get when I tell them I'm married or they see Kthrok walk up behind me and kiss me. I know, I'm mean, but it's nice to know that being married hasn't detracted from my desirability with the male half of the population. So I'm with Jo on this one :)

Glad it worked out for ya. Tonight at a party I was a called a sociopath.

Then, later on, someone made the comment that I looked like the kind of guy who would be handy in a fight. So I'm an intimidating sociopath.

Do you want an intimidating sociopath flirting with you?

I guess it depends if they're intimidated or a sociopath themselves.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Sometimes we make comments just to be nice, as in compliments, but without any desire to get any closer than voice range. If every compliment we give a woman is being taken as a wish on our part to have more happen, or as a statement of lust, think again. And some of you need to check your egos at the door, please. Christ. We men get reamed for being rude jerks if we are non-communicative, and we also get reamed for being frothing-mouthed leches if we are friendly. I don't think the biggest part of this problem lies with men. Get over yourselves, ladies. Take a compliment as just that--either ignore it or just give a smile. We are not lusting to get in the pants of every lady who comes our way. In fact, the majority of us are just as selective as y'all are.

Uhm, okay, so maybe I should not have used the word flirt? I didn't think the guy was trying to get into my pants or anything.

To me, flirt = extra attention. It doesn't necessarily mean anyone wants to go anywhere.

Wanting to GO somewhere I'd call a come-on.

Fizzy, are you trying to flirt with me?

I think most of us ego-toting women know that friendly flirting or playing doesn't imply that this certain stud is lusting after us. And a simple compliment, eh, that's usually because they are just trying to be polite, not even friendly.

What is this "flirting" thing?

Mela

Well this brings up a good point: exactly what is flirting?

A compliment is not flirting in my book - I've complimented guys at work on their ties or shirt colors and would never, ever want anything more from them.

That said, a guy complimenting a woman on what's she's wearing or a new hairstyle? -- weelll, I tell ya, since guys never notice anything I would view that as a little bit more than an off-the-cuff compliment - if someone's actually noticing what I'm wearing, then he's definitely noticed more. But it's still not flirting.

Flirting is playful kidding around, eye contact, body language type stuff - there's a whole lot of junk wrapped up in flirting, whereas a compliment is most times just a nice politeness.

[my bolding]

Oh, Boy. Here we go again. Uhhh, hell no. But, I guess to you, we represent the cadre of drooling idiots who can't possibly give a compliment on a new hairstyle or on a woman's clothing without really thinking about the woman's breasts or her crotch, or whether she'd be willing to do a three-way. You know, we all carry condoms in our wallets, and we go to the tanning booth and just put our left hands in there, minus our wedding rings, so we don't have those telltale white bands. Oh yeah. And we really do carve notches on our belts for our monthly meetings of the Brotherhood Sex-Studs.

Flirting is fun. Flirting should be fun. It should make you smile, laugh, blush, and give you that feeling in the pit of your stomach like you're going over the hill of a roller coaster.

I think you got that the wrong way round there bud :)

Flirting is just the oil that smooths the wheels of life. I flirt with anybody. Well anybody male who's over 18 and still breathing. Not always very much ( ie a little with my customers. Hey, they're builders. They buy more if you flirt ;)) I flirt with my mates, and we all know damn well it'd never go any further.

Flirting is fun. As long as that's all it is ( well unless I was single of course, but apparently I give off this 'you are sooo married' vibe)

I have no way of knowing for sure, since the original post has been deleted, but it appears that Jo's comments may have been misunderstood or taken out of context. It's probably best if we close this one now and move along to other discussions.
