I'm almost completley incapable of flirting; When I think of ways the situation might progress, I find that when I imagine rejection that feels real and makes sense, but when I imagine any sort of acceptance of my potential flirting, that feels fake and fantastical.
I've been lurking this place forever, and I realize I'm feeling the same way...
flirting is just a step higher than being playful with someone, if you can be playful in a friendly way you are just about there you just need to show some interest, whether that's longer than normal gaze or closer proximity or better a combination of these factors.
I'm no.2, but this seems really good. Thanks! Now if I could only build up the courage to start... D:
What I am about to tell you is something I have observed in a friend who is a "natural" at this. Obviously he gets many chicks, but I was intrigued by his behaviour and how it was almost never seen as offensive, when he is almost always flirting "aggressively" (I think he's a bit too extreme, but it was still interesting to learn from him).
