We ALL love to flirt, yes I will admit it, I like flirting! It’s fun, it gets me what I want, and it makes interactions more pleasant. I’m just the kind of girl who smiles a lot at random strangers.
We all have different motives for doing it: we like the attention, we want to get something done faster, we have a spasm in our cheek muscles; but whatever the reason, we have to consider that besides the wonderful, positive effects flirting has, it can also have some harmful and damaging ones too.
Such as, gravely insulting your significant other.
Everyone has a different idea for what constitutes flirting and where the line is, and it’s important to acknowledge that fact.
Rules For Harmless Interacting:
1. Discuss boundaries with your partner; what makes them feel uncomfortable.
What makes you feel uncomfortable. When does flashing your cleavage at the bartender cross the line?
2. Learn not to blow things out of proportion; if he gets a little too ‘over friendly’ with the barista at the coffee shop, calmly explain to him why it bothers you.
Also, it’s ok to let him get his ego stroked by strangers from time to time; it will boost his confidence and make him a lot more fun to be around (again, so long as it doesn’t cross your line).
3. Flirt with each other! The more you make each other feel desirable, that happier your relationship and sex life will be, and the less you’ll both need attention from other people.
Compliments are awesome to receive, so why not be the one giving them?!
