“I think the eyes flirt most. There are so many ways to use them.”
– Anna Held
Here’s the funny thing about flirting. I really can’t do it! I’m an utter shit flirt. One – if you are flirting with me, chances are I won’t notice. I grew up with a next-door neighbour, who apparently fancied the pants of me all throughout our childhood but I never noticed. Everyone else did though, even my own bloody mother noticed, while I clearly wore blinkers and swanned around oblivious to him and his advances.
Now as an adult, I am more receptive to others flirting with me, kinda. There’s a guy in our local supermarket who makes it so obvious when we go there, even my children have spotted it so I guess I have to notice that but overall, I really won’t!
My OH will often point out women he has clicked that are flirting. Though my OH also has the ability to spot when I am into another woman too and really seems to be in tune with the kind of person I attracted to and will often know and have it pointed out to me before I have even realised I am doing anything myself. The joys of being an open book I guess LOL…!
Me flirting though – I’m so bad. It often happens here, online. And more often than not, it is women I am flirting with. I am very happily married so honestly, I don’t usually flirt with men. Of course, there is always an exception but overall, women will grab my attention more and I always look like a bubbling idiot who can’t spell or type. I am embarrassingly shite and when I get excited and over flirtatious, I typo realllllly bad. Like I don’t mean to but it happens. A lot. 😬
I do enjoy flirting though and will happily engage in saucy, flirty texting with my husband, which often ends up being a filthy gif compilation by the time we finish. Foreplay as he calls it in jest, which I guess in a way he is right. He is most definitely a far better flirt than I am. I am most definitely a – use body language kind of flirt… My eyes give me away. There is a naughty glint in them. Followed by my lips. I tend to bite them and if there is connection there, I will most likely reach out to you too… I am more direct with body language and movement rather than words…
