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:?

LOL……@disco

The rules do change when they get feely touchy. When a few drinks go down the hatch that chick who was inappropriate now becomes a number one draft pick if nothing else is popping.

Morning All!!

I see we’re having fun today, cool!!

Leggs/Slim, I have always loved complimenting men. Most of the time it was not to get my flirt on either, but just to give credit where it’s due! I also give other ladies compliments as well. They make everyone feel good!

When I was single, my flirting would mostly consist of a nice, lingering smile. Dudes usually would take it from there to say something, strike up a conversation. I may make a funny comment about something around us to start a convo if he didn’t. Was always pretty successful. Sometimes I was not trying to start anything, just flash my big smile and keep it moving. Loved it when I looked especially hot in my outfit that day and get appreciative nods from the fellas, respectful not creepy!LOL!!

Hey, did any of you all hear the Bert Show yesterday when they were talking about this series of texts this crazy woman sent this dude after ONE date! Bert said they equaled 16 pages!! They got to talking about folks that get too attached & start talking about weddings and baby names of future kids after one date with someone. Talk about crazy!!!

leggs – I have nearly started fights in the club back in the day on account of those buster A dudes who don’t know how to open their mouths and speak so they think they can just reach out and grab you as you walk by. like I’m supposed to feel privileged that you touched my arm. just plain ignorant.

Well really, C! I mean, this chick is standing there with her husband staring at my crotch. No wonder he doesn’t like me. Every time I wear jeans, it’s ‘nice jeans’ or something, I’m like, they are just pants, you don’t have a shot at it, so just stop. wasting. our. time. I figure, what on earth are you thinking? You actually want to interact with people you don’t really know on this level?

Leggs/disco – I can’t stand dudes that get all touchy-feely!! Once at a club I had on this sleeveless dress and this dude came up and started rubbing his hand up and down my arm. It made my flesh crawl! I went slap off on his behind. One of the ladies I was with asked me if it would have been okay if dude had been good-looking. I looked at her like she was crazy too and told her I don’t like anyone touching me or invading my personal space unless I invite them, cute or not!!!

I don’t like flirting either where sex or the suggestion of, quickly rises or surfaces. For me that’s crossing the line and will get everything shut down with the quickness

I never touch or grab a woman unless she does it to me first. I will reach for her hand when I’m asking for a dance but not in an sly aggressive way. Now she don’t have to give me her hand it’s just a gesture that I make.

Exactly kimmie! Complimenting doesn’t necessary mean flirting. And, I will give a woman her props any day if its due!

I have a gf friend that doesn’t like to compliment me, her friends or anyone. I’ve watched her for many years, and I finally wrote my dissertation on her and her attitude. She’s a jealous bitter b….. I received an A+ on my astuteness…

speaking of compliments. there’s a little guy in my building who compliments me on something every single time he sees me – clothes, shoes, purse, eyeglasses. it’s getting so old because it’s apparent he’s just trying to get some attention. I joked with a co-worker that I won’t be surprised when he starts complimenting my elbows or something.

kimmie – I think i told yall about the time I went out for my friends bday back in September…but this dude kept trying to dance with me and touch all on my torso. At first I politely moved out of the way but he would find a way to inch back up close to me. Eventually I spun around and told his ass to quit touching me! So he leaves, i’m standing there dancing with myself by my friends and next thing I know, I feel beer being poured on the back of my shirt. I turn around and him and his brother are facing the bar as if nothing happened. I see that this fool had a just bought a beer for the simple purpose of pouring it on me. I could tell it was him because of all the suds/head that was on the beer still in his bottle. I went over to him and basically cussed his butt out for spilling the beer on me. Of course he denied it and next thing I know I was punching him in his chest! :roll: :twisted:

bf/leggs, i had it pointed out to me that i have a tendency to touch people while talking to them. i use my hands a lot when i talk anyway, but i also used to touch a person’s arm or shoulder out of pure reflex. i’ve since became much more aware of controlling that habit

i do believe it served me well in sales though. but when you’re trying to close a deal (and feeling up on someone) things could go left rather quickly. :grin:

Kimmie…I did hear the crazy texts yesterday on the Bert Show. I was thinking “that poor girl.” She needs some serious help. C R A Z Y!!!!!

I don’t understand why some men think it’s ok to just grab a woman that they don’t know. That’s not the way to get it in. If I don’t know you, don’t touch me unless it’s invited.

Slim – That dude was lucky he wasn’t dealing with a REAL crazy chick that would have shot his behind. I would have probably gone to punching too if someone poured anything on me!! Burns me up just thinking about it!! :(

Bluz – That’s the type of thing people on the outside don’t know about when they see people. They may think to themselves “She/He is so attractive, wonder why someone hasn’t scooped them up?”. They don’t know that they turn folks off with their psycho ways!!!

I was just having drinks and snacks with a friend who talked about the high percentage of chicks just waiting to get backed over. I believe his number was 8 out of 10, going in the negative direction.

leggs – and that was my point. it’s one thing to not get it immediately but dang, how long did it take that chick to get the clue? in my opinion it took way too long. here’s my other flashback phrase – that chick was a “bugaboo”.

What’s up Celisea?

What about in the office setting when women come in your cubicle and practically give you a massage. About 2 wks ago I was talking to co-worker and a married female co-worker brushed up against my arm first, I ignored the first brush then a 1 minute later she brushes up against my butt…I feeling kinda violated…lol

She is thick I might have to do some heavy lifting this summer… j/k

just ugh! that is such a sad thing to see.

my sis that i’ve often joked about being a little powder keg got into an actual physical altercation with her beau a couple weeks ago. it was so bad her 20-something son and a friend of his jumped in and fought the guy too. i found out yesterday that they’re still together.

i luv my sis. always will, but i’m struggling with how to “feel” about her right now. i would never expect her to be a woman who would stay in an abusive relationship (even though she gives as good as she gets). it’s just unhealthy all the way around.

why go through all the trials of raising a family, finally reaching a point of complete independence, and then fill that space with violence?
