    Flirting

    "Flirting has be proven to be difficult in our days. Men do not approach the women easily and they expect them to make the first move."

    Is this gramatically acceptable?

    I'm not very keen on "in our days" although I know what you mean. I would go for something like:

    - Flirting is proving to be difficult these days. Men do not approach women easily and they expect women to make the first move.

    1) I prefer "is proving to be" because this is in ongoing situation. You could also use simply "Flirting is very difficult ..."
    2) "These days" instead of "in our days".
    3) Remove "the" after "approach" and before "women".
    4) "They expect them" is a little ambiguous as it's not totally clear which are the men and which are the women.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
