How To Flirt
Flirting is supposed to set the stage for romance, a series of signals of interest and availability that move a relationship forward without any overt statement of intent or purpose.
Wow. Saying it that way, I'm surprised we're not all career celibates.
Maybe flirting, at its best, is supposed to be something of a romantic joke, something that keeps us slightly off-balance and keeps the element of surprise in a relationship...
"The element of surprise". That comes from an Army field manual, the chapter on ambushes.
Flirting is the art of the possible.
It simply means that if the circumstances are right, something might grow...and if they aren't right, that that road not taken exists.
If you're single, knowing how to flirt can add texture and fun to your life, and the lives of people you meet.
If you're married, flirting with your spouse is the best way to keep romance alive in your marriage. (And flirting with anyone else is an act of disloyalty, and seriously wrong.)
But don't ask me how, because I haven't a clue!
