"can't live with 'em; can't live without 'em"

I must admit I do my fair share of flirting but I try to keep it out of the fish store as the people I tend to meet aren't of the type I tend to flirt with....

Harmless flirting is welcomed, but invade my space or continue after a reference is made about a significant other and you're done.

In other words, harmless flirting is welcomed aslong as the guy is a hottie

No. How do you get that out of what I wrote
Honestly, flirting can come from anyone, provided it is HARMLESS, my space is not invaded and the flirter does not badger the flirtee.

I had a nice post and just deleted it by accident....grr
Anyway...I do agree with Menagerie, but I will also concede to the men's view point...just a little.
(Here's where I was going to apologetically admit that in my situation, I was quite dressed up because I had gone straight from work to the Pet Store....but then I thought, why should I apologize for looking NICE????)
I will say that us women like to know we are admired...(if we are honest with ourselves). However, we just don't like to be scared or freaked out...so when it comes to flirting, a LITTLE goes a long way. Plus when I make obvious references to my husband to a COMPLETE STRANGER....I expect him to respect that. Friends is one thing....but someone who doesn't know me??? It doesn't make a man seem more appealing and it certainly doesn't motivate me to stick around...even for friendly conversation! (especially in his case)
OH and I forgot to say that he also said my Cherry Barbs would be good dinner for his Piranha!!!!! 8O (talk about adding insult to injury)

I can't believe you didn't succumb to the piranha line smallfry. It always works for me (right after what's your sign). *LOL*

Flirting is such a part of being human. I think all men and women enjoy being both the flirter and flirtee. It's actually a great indicator of someones social and people skills. It also speaks volumes about self confidence. JMO.
