Flirting or Friendly?

I’m not the type that thinks a man is always trying to hit on me when he pays me a little attention. Sometimes, a guy is genuinely being kind or chivalrous.  This also means that I have probably missed a couple of flirting signals.

I can tell when a guy is “checking me out” as it were, but flirting..well, let’s just say that guys have told me they had to work overtime before I realized they were actually flirting with me.  I am talking about the type of flirting that should alert me to the fact that they were interested.

How can a woman tell a man is flirting with her? What are the signs?

Guys, are there times when you are really just being cordial or friendly? Should women take any male interaction as a sign he is interested or attracted?  How do women distinguish from a friendly encounter to a flirty one?

Ladies, do you have a hard time recognizing flirtatious behavior from men? Does it ever come across as  random “peacock” behavior when they are showing off whatever asset they believe impresses women?  Do you think that works?

M Dot: the only way that I would date someone that is unemployed is if A, they won a significant amount from the lottery where they wouldn’t have to work
B, they were a trust fund baby (dated one)
C, they are making a job out of finding a job. Meaning Mon-Fri 8:00am-5:00pm, they are sending out resumes, going on interviews, networking, attending job fairs, developing their skill sets, etc….

There are some people that use the excuse of being laid off for not being pressed to find a job so you really have to look at the individual to find out what is going on.
Also, at that stage of a person’s life, I prefer to be a true friend and help them try to find a job and once they have that area settled, then maybe the idea of dating that person can be revisited.

What happened to the blog today? People are still doing MLK holiday break huh!
What’s up Ms. Lurker someday you are I going to discuss the bible so you can become Mrs. Lurker. :wink: :lol:

If she was the one I would support her all the way, thus creating a positive supportive environment to assist her in attaining a J.O.B! The one don’t come around too often and I do not want to miss out on Ms. Lurker, I mean the ONE (AKA Matrix) :smile:

I am whatever
I do that as well. Humor breaks the ice and eases tensions. How is being humorous NOT being yourself? Just because you crack a joke, give a compliment, or say something witty doesn’t automatically make it a “line”. You’re just trying to put the other person at ease.

@ Lurker: my God I hate pick up lines!
Ugh! What ever happened when people would talk to you trying to get to know you without using a line.

There are ways for guys to flirt without using corny lines
