noitsnot: megarian: 20/20: megarian: lennavan: megarian: lennavan: megarian: lennavan: I need a flirting coach to teach me how to be friendly without coming across as flirting.  I've had the weirdest women ask me out and no it's not cool, it's really awkward.

^that was meant for you^

Sorry. This is awkward.

It was because your daughter is my age and I'd rather go out with her.

She was originally my son. Surprise!

As long as she had good surgeons.

...weirdest boner...

Something gives me the idea that you don't need any flirting instruction. Are you single and available?

Perpetually.

Just check her profile - you can see what it would be like to date her 9 years ago ;)


9 years? But the watermark says 2004 and that was only like a few yea- FFFFFFUUUUUUUUUU-

kombat_unit: Please help, I was born with the inability to know if a female is flirting.  It's quite debilitating and it really sucks when I find out later about a opportunity that was missed.


Solution: hit on every female until she either slaps you or goes home with you.

I havn't been single for many years, but I remember that if a women made eye contact, that was a good first step.

/frankly, if a women showed any kind of interest, I was ecstatic.

spentmiles: I don't think women can flirt or not flirt anymore than they can be pretty or not be pretty.  As a mortician, I've had plenty of time to study people in their most relaxed state, namely dead.  There's something about the way a woman's hair falls when her head turns to one side.  Something about the way her legs cross and uncross.  Something about the gurgling sounds inside of her, like tickling elves laughing.  It's the unconscious things that a woman does that makes her flirty.  And when it works, I just cannot stop myself.  And yes, the stories are actually true - a woman can have an orgasm up to fifteen hours post-mortem.  The nerve endings don't die with the brain.


That is probably the sickest, most disrespectful, awesome thing I have ever read on fark.  Thank you, I had just about come to the conclusion that Fark had become a complete waste of time.

Yes, sweetie, you can tweak a few things & still be a geek.  I can get dressed up, with make-up & everything, but I'll still be a nerd & a tom boy at heart.

You don't have to go too far with it, but the hygiene is a must. There must be no weird smells, hair can be messy but it has to be clean. Use deodorant and clean the crud out from under the finger nails.

Yes, yes it is.

Would love to see her in a porn where her eyes are that wide but she has 3 BBCs in her mouth. At the same time. With her mascara running.


go on.....

It seems less likely for women to learn to flirt to find dates than it is for them to use for gains elsewhere, like the business world or other situations.

I think the flirting class idea is awesome. Some people learn how to do it from mentors or osmosis; some people benefit more from explicit instruction. If you noticed, they also quoted some men who were taking the class -- it's not just for the ladies.

If you notice her "flirting tips," they are nearly identical to the basic tips laid out in every PUA "seduction" manual. All stuff we can benefit from: be confident, have a light touch, have fun with it, be playful, etc.It's about trying to create a push-pull dynamic of tension that may or may not lead to deeper attraction. You're just testing the social waters, and having fun with it.

Everyone sucks at flirting at first, but the more you practice, the more fun and rewarding it becomes. You CAN learn how to be more social. It's tough to get started, because you suck at first. It's like doing stand-up or singing like that. You throw yourself out there, and you suck, and you feel bad. A class like this sounds like a good, safe place to practice and get honest critiques. Sounds like it would be a lot of fun, too.

I've noticed a lot of the "all you need to land a man is shake your ass hurrdurrdurr" on this thread, which is expected. As men, yes, we're basically perpetually horny, but if you expect this of yourself and your fellow men, you really are limiting yourself. A man that learns to flirt has gone beyond the hormonal level and is much more interesting to women. If you wish to remain part of the 80% of men getting together with 20% of the women, that is your choice.

Women suck at flirting.  The funny thing is that it is really easy.  Just walk up to a guy and whisper in his ear, "I want you to put your throbbing meat missle in my pussy" or "I want your man butter on my face" or some other such thing. Heck, there is even no need to whisper it. Dont waste time with really subtle forms of flirtation, just be open and honest.  Isnt that what good relationships are founded on?

Smile, don't act like a biatch and leave your fat venomous sidekick at home.  Hope I saved you some money there.

In addition to the comments from chaosangel and others, I think flirting also has to do with self-confidence.

Go meet people for the fun of meeting people then you may get lucky; as opposed to "I need to fark, who is available."  Most people who are desperate show this on their face and in their actions.  I found this true with some of the women I have met.

Its a bummer that I didn't figure out I was actually good at the flirting thing until after I was married.  Now if I could just talk my wife into an open marriage....
