    From dictionary, to flirt is to make playfully romantic or sexual overtures.
    So flirty are people doing that it seems. When I went to elementary school we often flirted with girls. That was fun, however not 100% real due to immaturity. For me, flirting is weird, because you may make girls loving you without actually giving the love back, ending it with curses, anger, etc unless you flirt when you actually fall in love with a person. Don't believe any of my words. I may be wrong.

    It has its downside. I have female friend who flirts with guys. She bounces her OO's off their head, etc. Tee hee isn't that cute. I know more about her sex life than all the rest of my friends put together because she brags about it.

    Then, on New Year's Eve, one friend, really drunk, grabs her OO's, you know, for a picture. Ha ha.

    She is furious and hasn't forgiven him to this day.

    I'm thinkin' "What? Did he cross some sort of boundary? You have boundaries??? Go figger."

    Many people flirt as a way of covering their butts. If it's taken seriously, they pretend they meant it, and continue from there. If it's rebuffed, they scoff that you took them seriously.

    I have a friend who flirts with everyone. She doesn't think she is flirting though. She is very friendly(not in a sexual way) with everyone. It is just her personality but she has every man she meets asking for her phone number. This always astonishes her and she still doesn't know what she did.

    This is a tough one. I am 54 and I don't consider myself handsome although I do try to stay in shape. A couple of years ago, at a BBQ, a cute female friend (about 30) stuck to me like velcro, and when I tried to give her a quick peck on the cheek (since I like her and hadn't seen her for months) she muckled onto me and planted a firm kiss on my lips. This did not please my wife for some reason (duh!). Not long ago, a young female relative (in her 20's) did the same thing to me in a public setting. Is this becoming common with the 30-and-under crowd? I didn't indulge either of them with undue attention before the kisses; I just expressed my pleasure at seeing them after lengthy absences. These are both very attractive young women with companions that I think are good-looking and decent guys their own ages, so it's not like I'm trying to flirt with these ladies - I just like them for who they are.

    That's far more likely up here, with our much colder climate. Why do you think that I wear glasses?

    Nope, it does.

    The percentages represent (number of people that picked this option)/(total number of respondents).

    In the workplace it can be really bad. One of the people that supports me technically tries to flirt with me because of my voice (he is in another state). I found out he asked the guys in my office what I looked like and then had been pressuring me to meet him when he came here for a meeting last week. I just felt it would be too weird. I NEED him professionally. I have clients that fall for me and that's REALLY awkward.

    Dang! I always forget I can choose more than one option on the polls with square check boxes. :grumpy: I like being a bit flirty among friends, but I also know to reign it in when professionalism is called for.

    flirting doesn't necissarily have to be sexual (well, okay, maybe it is subconsciously, I don't know). I have a girlfriend, but I still flirt with other girls casually, but it's not like I'm trying to get in their pants, it's just a playful way to lighten a mood, I guess.

    If both parties know the boundaries, it's generally all in good fun. It's only when someone takes it the wrong way that things get sticky. Or just complicated, which is usually less entertaining. o:)

    From Merriam-Webster on-line.
    Well, there seems to be two contexts, one in which someone makes romantic overtures (without regard to motivation), and the other in which flirting involves romantic or amorous overtures without serious intent, the latter being disingenous or dishonest.

    It is for the reason of ambiguity that I do not care for flirting and never have.

    In my own experience, I have never flirted except for one woman whom I seriously wished to meet (here flirting is in accordance with the first definition). Eventually we did meet and started dating until I found out she was married, and the dating stopped.
