Single life: Summer is flirting season!

It is officially flirting season! I don’t know if it is due to the relief from the insane pollen count, the temperatures creeping up, or the fact that we are wearing less clothes. Summer time is the right time to get your flirt on.

I get approached more during the summer months, even when I am not even thinking about men! Guys see a little more skin and it’s like they are more compelled to make their moves. It doesn’t have to be at a bar or even at a social gathering.

According to the dating experts (umm not me, obviously) this is the best time of year to relax, paint on smile, and make yourself available for maximum flirting!

So, what are the best places in Atlanta to put your flirting muscles to work? I want location names and addresses, people!

What do you do if you have a small window of opportunity to flirt with someone and you want to get in and make a great first impression? Do you start with a joke? Ask for help? Do you recruit friends to be your wingman or wingwoman?

I admit that I have resorted to some crazy tactics before, like the time I “accidentally” bumped into a guy. It was part genius – part stupid. If I hadn’t nearly toppled us both over, it would have been genius.

What lengths have you gone to in an attempt to get your flirt on:?

Flirting comes natural IMO. It’s just a matter of seizing the moment. That’s winter, spring, summer, fall. There’s not too much “extra” needed. Just dig into your bag of tricks and pull out what you already have and go for what you (already) know.

Toddles and happy Friday!

Flicks on Fifth St., Movies in Central Park, and Centennial Parks Screen on the Green. All are good spots to flirt and mingle, that of course if you’re alone. Went to Flicks on Fifth (MI Ghost Protocol) Wednsday night and it was great, they gave free popcorn, Fuze multi fruit drinks all you care to have and lots of single lady’s to flirt with. The little A has rose up. All movies are free just bring your blankets or out door chairs and enjoy. The good part is the venues don’t overlap each other, so you could go to one each day.

Good morning.

What do you do if you have a small window of opportunity to flirt with someone and you want to get in and make a great first impression? – Since there in fact is a window, I’m not a very shy person so I would start with a hello, followed with a compliment of some sort. His outfit, his cologne, his smile…somethig.

Do you start with a joke? – I’m corny by nature, so a joke may either make him laugh or look at me like I lost my marbles. No, I wouldn’t start with that. I am witty (IMO), so I will piggyback on what he says after my initial compliment.

Good morning,

I can’t say there is any one particular place to get your flirt on because that can go down anywhere…a festival, a museum, restaurant, bar, grocery store, Dave & Busters, Six Flags, park, etc…If you see someone that catches your eye and there is limited time to make yourself known, typically a sweet smile, a wink, joke or compliment can be an opening to a conversation. Most men don’t get compliments that often so that is always a good way to start. As far as anything crazy I’ve done to get the attention of someone, I haven’t really done much outside of the box.

Don’t like to watch movies outdoors, there’s plenty of bars around town to get your flirt on. If all else fails just say hello to a beautiful lady passing by your way. I’m not confused I think all women are beautiful that’s just me.

good morning.

lily – you don’t be playing with being number 1 up in this camp.

leggs – corny by nature? that’s a good one. I can’t talk though because I refer to myself as square quite a bit.

I was just telling friends that usually every year around march/april I start getting excited about the upcoming summer season. must say it’s already june and that excitement still hasn’t showed up. maybe I’ll be getting my “autumn” on this year.

Leggs – I find that many dude will open with a joke or a compliment. I recall when Buckhead actually had clubs there and I was out with a friend at Club Chaos. We were waiting on drinks at the bar after dancing and this guy comes up and opens with a joke. Whatever it was was freaking hi la r i ou s and me being my silly self came back with a rebuttal. I think he was surprised at my wit but either way we actually ended up dating for about a year and a half. He ended up getting a job out of state so that was that.

Slim1 the museum is one my favorites, but not many folks of color go to them. Sometimes there are specs of us in there, I like going to Fernbank to the planetarium that’s one cool place. I know sounds nerdy, but I can be that sometimes.

Leggs a compliment to a man is a strong flirt, doing that will certainly get you some play time.

BF – but you didn’t put out that disclaimer. I think that in regard to compliments men are like women. a compliment can mean something or nothing depending on who it’s coming from. if some little mud duck chick is in a man’s face grinning and complimenting him he may be gentlemanly and humor her while he’s wishing a light fixture would fall and hit her in the head.

disco – Yes you’re right but that’s the case with approaching anyone whether it be a man trying to talk to a woman or a woman trying to talk to a man. A compliment accepted doesn’t mean you’ve signed up for a date lol Some of the men that say stuff to me, i’m wishing their pants would fall around their knees and they’d run away in embarrassment of showing that they still wear tighty whities :lol:

lady – yeah. I don’t know where mud duck came from so early in the morning. my flirting skills aren’t strong at all. my saving grace is that I’m not shy. if push comes to shove the direct approach has it’s benefits. it scares some (won’t use that intimidation word) but I’ve found many are receptive to it or at least flattered.

Good Morning Folks!

Any place is a good place to get your flirt on! I like to use compliments to get in the door. Once the lady smiles is it on…

Once Disco sends me that pic and I compliment her on her smooth brown skin, Ms. Disco will get plenty excited about the summer…lol

disco ~ I’d rather be “corny” by nature than “naughty” by nature. :lol: :lol:

See I thought that was corny, but funny (my wit at work). :wink:

SlimNu/BF ~ I am one of those women who feel men do not get enough compliments and are always delighted when one is given to them. I do compliment men in the elevator, at the store, etc. Some men wear their clothes very well and if I see one I will offer the compliment (but never if there’s a woman strolling beside him).

HiYas!

yup yup. it’s definitely skin-in-the-streets time. time to see and be seen. i’ll be showing off my loveliness, but please approach with extreme caution and DO NOT TOUCH!

back in the day, eye contact was my preferred form of flirtation. these days, between s/o and i it’s all in the touch. i luv admiring dudes with exposed tatts and tight bods, but i’m careful to avoid eye contact out of respect for my s/o (and myself, of course). same goes when i’m out and about. i’m careful not to sustain eye contact for fear of sending an unintentional invite.

Anytime anyone uses “I’m/you’re fine” (in response to ‘how are you’ or ‘excuse me’) there’s my responses of “I know and thank you”, “so are you”, followed by “and today is [insert day], since we’re stating the obvious.”

The Bert Show was coming up with funny pick up lines and are having one staff member go out this weekend to use them and see if they work. I was still half asleep when I heard it, so I can’t think of the lines they gave him to use. Maybe they’ll come to me once my coffee kicks in. Anyone else hear it this morning?

“get your flirt on”. Hmph. I tend to shut down chicks that try to flirt with me. I mean, come on, stop wasting our time. If we don’t have a reason to be talking, and we don’t actually want to discuss something with each other, don’t bother me, please. I’ll offer the same courtesy, it goes both ways.

My best flirt was via text. It was a series of short exchanges, happening as fast as we could type. Like this:
Him: I like your eyes.
Her: Your shoulders
Him: Your mind
Her: You wit
Him: Softness
Her: Hardness

and on an on it went for about 30 mins. Man, stroke my brain and you’ll get the rest.

“You sure are” is corny, lacivious, creepy, and not how the D speaks at all.

“you’re mighty full of yourself aren’t you? You’re cute, yes. But ‘fine’ is you doing too much.” <– delivered in a playful tone/smile/manner is more my speed.

I smacked his hand hard and briskly walked in the direction of the police officer I saw on the corner. I have told many guys not to touch me. I have no idea why they think that’s a cool thing to do. Don’t stroke my forearm because my reflexes may have me plucking you on the forehead…UUUGHH!!!
