Flirting and oblivious guys
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flirtation & Body Language

Making eye contact is the most fundamental aspect of flirting. Its also accompanied by batting eyelashes, touching one's hair, casually touching arms, suggestive smiles, giggles, winking, flattery, stretching/flexing, teasing, making playful/sexual jokes and even playing footsie under the table.

In a more modern setting flirting may also involve online chats, text messaging, sending flowers/gifts or poetry. How people respond to flirtation during the initial courtship will determine whether the relationship progresses to dating or a sexual encounter.

Flirting is often rebuffed or unnoticed and thus not all flirts lead to a long-term relationship or casual sex. How people respond to flirting determines whether the other person is interested/attracted.

Social psychologists at McGill University have discovered that different beliefs between men and women about the power of flirting can hurt committed relationships.

Men simply do not see the same danger as women when a flirt strikes, says Prof. John Lydon, a relationship expert and lead author of the study in the July issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, published by the American Psychological Association.

But there is an almost immediate negative impact on the relationship, researchers discovered in a series of experiments involving 724 heterosexual college students involved in serious relationships.

In one experiment, a meeting with an "available, attractive alternative" was closely followed by the discovery their partner had done something that irritated them, such as reveal an embarrassing detail to others. The men got angry. The women, however, became more loving and forgiving.

According to Lydon, these young women recognized the danger presented by an attractive flirt and worked to shore up the committed relationship they already had. The men didn't have a clue what was going on, he says.

"One of the undergraduate males (in the study) asked, `Does this mean men are pigs?' said Lydon, adding that it only means men are self-focused and "not making the connection."

We should note that some men don't even pick up on when women are flirting (unless the female is being extremely obvious). Some men are just clueless.
