Flirting Differences Between Girls and Guys

Guest Author - Dominique Jordan

According to Websterís Dictionary, flirting means, ďTo behave in a way that shows an attraction for someone but is not meant to be taken seriously.Ē It sounds so simple when you put it that way, huh? But in reality, flirting can seem really complicated. How do you do it? How do you know when someone else is flirting with you? And what do you do about it if they are?

Human beings naturally flirt with one other. Despite all the books and articles out there that say how they can teach you how to flirt, you donít really need to learn anything. More than likely you already know everything you need to know. If you donít quite know someone but are really attracted to them and would like to know them a little better but you donít know how to introduce yourself, you will flirt.

When you flirt, you do just enough to catch the other personís attention without doing too much. You want them to look at you, notice you, and perhaps even come over and talk to you. You want them to like you and become attracted to you as well, but you donít want to be too obvious the way you feel.

Girls and guys flirt differently. Girls might look at the other person, look away, bat their eyelashes, blush, swish their hair, touch their face, giggle, or become very interested in a friendís conversation and answer loudly. They may even put their hands on their hips. If girls know the other person a little bit or are physically near them, they may touch the other personís hand or shoulder, try to hug them, touch the other personís hair, or gaze into their eyes.

Guys might also look at the other person and then look away, touch their hair, and start talking loudly with friends but guys also flex their muscles, rub their faces or chest, make jokes, become louder in general, or do something slightly outrageous or funny.

Putting on revealing clothing, overdoing make-up, being too touchy or clingy, walking or moving unnaturally, or being too loud or pushy isnít really a good way to flirt. The best type of flirting is the type that comes when you arenít really thinking about flirting. Itís honest and natural. When you try too hard, you can fail at the most basic purpose of flirting Ė not being too obvious.

So what do you do when you notice someone else flirting with you?
First, pay attention. If they are flirting, that is what they want you to do. After this, figure out if youíre attracted to them. If you are, try flirting back or even going over to talk to them. If you arenít, the beauty of flirting well is that you donít really have to answer.

If someone is flirting with you and you arenít interested, just ignore them. Their feelings wonít be too hurt and you can each go on your way.
