Of course, if dudes did this, the coaches would be called "registered sex offenders."

Aar1012: So they're going to learn to use such subtle body language that no guy will understand that they are flirting?

/Just let us know

I think I need to take a class in how to recognize that a woman is flirting with me.

I'm wrong when I think I'm being flirted with, and completely oblivious when a woman actually is. It takes a friend telling me after the fact, or me finally realizing it a few days later - but by then, the moment has passed, and if I go back and try, I'm so awkward, nervous, and self-conscious that I appear the sudden victim of massive brain trauma.

"That spastic clod who couldn't form words is really cute and interesting," said no one ever.

WhippingBoy: I know a number of women who have a "perfect guy" list, and they swear that they won't accept anything less in a boyfriend (think of the Ryan Gosling "Hey Girl" meme).
The problem is that none of these women are in any way remarkable: not beautiful, not witty, not particularly intelligent (e.g. mostly average, like the rest of us), yet they somehow believe that they "deserve" the best of the best.

I'm investing in cat breeding companies; I expect the demand for multiple cats is going to skyrocket as these women hit their 30's and 40's.


There was some article a while back about some statistical breakdowns from the site, "Hot or Not".

While obviously there's reasons for the information to be biased, the funny thing was that guys tended to be more *accurate* in their assessments of women.

The guys rated women fairly, so the average girl turned out to be a 5. The girls on the other hand, put the average guy as a 3 (on a scale of 1-10 for those not familiar with the site).

I find it interesting because I've seen the same types of girls you've spoken about in my life as well. I'm wondering if part of it is due to the Disney princesses and Barbies they worship as they grow up. I mean, if you spend your entire life being told by your dad and mom that your beautiful, and spend hours looking at a Ken doll, or a prince from one of those movies, you're probably going to be pretty farked up about what's realistic for you to obtain.

I don't remember posting in this thread already... But yeah, you're not alone in that problem. I have this bad tendency to assume a girl isn't interested in me, so I don't realize it when they are.

Next time you go out, suspend the attention-whoring twunt act and agree to go out on a date with the guy who spent the evening respectfully engaging you.

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.


I have to say, this is the singularly most disturbing thing I have read today.  Congratulations...it's not often I have to stop and say something because it's just so wrong.

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?

"The perfect guy" is someone they have already friend zoned, and aren't even considering. The one they mistakenly think is "The perfect guy" will never settle down, as least not with them.

THIS.

Women: Never equate politeness and respectfulness in a man with boring or "nice". That polite guy you think is cute is probably a great person.

The sound of one hand clapping: "Girls who don't know how to flirt can be troublesome because it's really difficult to tell if they are into you or not."

Problem: girls who don't know how to flirt generally *have no clue* they don't know how to flirt.
I'd be willing to bet the girls in these 'flirting classes' (to the extent they exist) *aren't* the ones who don't know how to flirt.
They're the ones who flirt just fine, but aren't getting asked out for whatever reason and would rather latch onto an 'easy fix' explanation than do some serious self-examination.

Because it's much easier for someone to entertain the idea of "I'm bad at flirting" than "I don't take care of myself" or "I come off like a psycho hose beast".

Bedstead Polisher: I've been told that I don't give good signals. I think it's because I don't think guys are into me and I don't want to make a fool of myself. I was a late bloomer and used to being the friend of the girl being hit on.
Time for me to change that though as I don't think I'm being complimentary enough to the guy I like right now.


Skip the signals, ask him out. Or tell him "You're taking me out this weekend.  Pick a good Italian place."  Seriously, just go for it.  At the very least he'll know you're interested.

I suppose that you might need flirting lessons if you are fat and/or ugly.  But if you are halfway attractive at all,  all one has to do is what that earworm woman of last summer suggested "Call me maybe"---give the guy your telephone number.  The dating scene is confusing and uncertain, and you could very well waste all your charm on some great guy who is interested in you because of it. But do this and in one fell swoop you wade through all the BS and cut to the chase.

WhippingBoy: "Why not? You *know* they put out and make bad decisions."

Because I don't want to have to deal with the consequences of their "bad decisions." And the crazy can be very clever when it comes to tracking down the focus of their obsessions.

Geez, it isn't like sex with womyn is all that hard to get. And most of them don't need to become drama queens about it. Quality over quantity is usually worth the trade-off, at least in my admittedly limited experience.

/Current GF is getting on in years but still 20 less than me; besides, she's a keeper.

gamergirl23: megarian: futalfufu: My flirting technique is to drink too much, then find a cute guy, stumble up to him, hit him on the arm a few times to let him know I like him, then tell him that Angela is my favorite of all the 80s deranged psychopaths before walking away.

/always leave them wanting more
//haven't figured out that last part yet

I go for the guy drunker than I am. That way if things get weird, I just run in a zig-zag pattern. It disorients them.

Works for eluding alligators, too.

How do you get those drunk first?


The alligators? Easy. Fill a baby with whiskey (vodka will do in a pinch). Scent the baby with Cheetos by placing Cheetos and baby in a large bag. Shake vigorously (alligators love Cheetos). Throw the baby in front of alligator. Leave nature to do the rest.

You're welcome.

Normally I'd be 100% this.  I can't stand all the dumb games people play in relationships.

That said, I read the article and it makes a lot of sense.  Girls who don't know how to flirt can be troublesome because it's really difficult to tell if they are into you or not.  There's something to be said for flirting.  It makes me feel good about myself and lets me know that the girl isn't just enduring the conversation until she can find an excuse to leave.
