The Art of flirting
Which approach do you use when
you're trying to meet someone? Are you a good talker, engaging
others in interesting conversation, or do you sit back and wait to
be courted? Do you "come on" strong with sexual signals,
or more subtly "flirt"?
Getting someone's attention in
whatever way you're comfortable with involves flirting. Flirting was
a popular '80s term for trying to get someone's interest in a more
subtle way than coming on strong. Unfortunately, flirting has
received a bad rap, and these days is usually part of a complaint:
"I saw my boyfriend flirting with another girl."
Let the new millennium welcome a
resurgence of the positive aspects of flirting. That means, treat flirting
as fun and a good way to practice social skills, and to make
yourself and your targets feel good.
