“Born and Bred to Flirt”
We’re losing social skills, the human interaction skills, how to read a person’s mood, to read their body language, how to be patient until the moment is right to make or press a point. Too much exclusive use of electronic information dehumanises what is a very, very important part of community life and living together. Vincent Nichols
Flirt – Body language – Coquetry – AntiFlirt
Never ask a woman if you may kiss her. Instead, learn to read body language. Neil Strauss
Flirting is a playful, romantic or sexual overture by one person to another subtly indicating an interest in a deeper relationship with the other person, and can involve verbal communication as well as body language.
Women are better at reading body language everywhere in the world. As a matter of fact, it’s associated with the female hormone estrogen. Women are better at figuring out of tone of voice, reading your face and posture and gesture. Helen Fisher
I highly recommend for all the women in the world, even if they’re 71, you can never take for granted that he loves you. It’s always good to flirt with him. It’s a great sport. Salma Hayek
Body language can include flicking the hair, eye contact, brief touching, open stances, proximity etc. Verbal communication of interest can include the vocal tone, such as pace, volume, intonation. Challenges (teasing, questions, qualifying, feigned disinterest) serve to increase tension, test intention and congruity.
I am not a sexy woman, I’m not beautiful, I’m not a sex kitten, I don’t flirt with people, yet I’ve been tagged more of sex symbol than women who truly are and I that’s solely because I don’t reveal too much: people are curious. Shirley Manson
Flirting usually involves speaking and behaving in a way that suggests a mildly greater intimacy than the actual relationship between the parties would justify, though within the rules of social etiquette, which generally disapproves of a direct expression of sexual interest. This may be accomplished by communicating a sense of playfulness or irony. Double entendres, with one meaning more formally appropriate and another more suggestive, may be used.
There are times I go out and meet people and flirt, but it’s not really appropriate to have anything serious. Katy Perry
Coquetry is an affectation of amorous tenderness, especially of a woman directed towards a man. It is often considered to be a form of flirtation, but may be distinguished as being subtler and more innocent.
Coquetry is the essential characteristic, and the prevalent humor of women; but they do not all practise it, because the coquetry of some it restrained by fear or by reason. – François de La Rochefoucauld, Maxims (1665–1678), No. 252.
The greatest miracle of love is the cure of coquetry. – François de La Rochefoucauld, Maxims (1665–1678), No. 359.
I was born and bred to be a great flirt.– Cybill Shepherd
I think the eyes flirt most. There are so many ways to use them. Anna Held
