    Question Flirting

    Hi,

    What's your definiton of 'flirting'?

    I am confused between flirting, complimenting and 'being nice'

    What is considered flirting and what's a flirtatious person like?


    Many thanks

    A flirtatious person acts as if he or she is seeking a sexual relationship with another person. It is difficult to define which behaviors in particular are flirting. Like many judgements, it is "in the eye of the beholder."

    Flirting usually involves a certain amount of body language along with some flattery or compliments. If you meet a woman at a bar and say "you have beautiful eyes," that's a compliment. But if you say "you have beautiful eyes" while leaning close to her and giving her a lop-sided smile while raising one of your eyebrows, then that's flirting.

    And if you say 'you have beautiful eyes' when the person doesn't, you are being nice.
