Well Valentine's Day has come and gone, and if you found yourself alone, and wishing you had a special someone to share the day with, you may want to start that search now, to be ready for next year. This is your lucky week! It’s the National week of Flirting!
When I think of flirting, the first thing I think of is the song Three Little Maids from School, A Rogers and Hammerstein song from the musical Mikado. Here is a link to the song on you tube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXWkIZUPmDY
Another is a scene from The Princess Diaries 2 Where the young princess Mia is learning the art of the fan from her grandmother, Queen Clarice, played by Julie Andrews. You can see this scene here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXWkIZUPmDY
While I may think of the use of the fan first, realistically, it’s not something I would use. I mean, how many people do you ever run across that carry lace fans? So, I looked around and checked out some other views for flirting.
The radio station 96.1 FM lists these as some clues:
She’s starts flipping her hair, playing with her clothes or jewelry.
If she laughs she thinks you’re cute or funny, (guffaws mean she wants to split.)
If she moves her body a lot, she’s trying to get your attention.
Marriedromance.com also has some suggestions stating that just because you are married, doesn’t mean you can stop flirting with your spouse. However it would be dangerous if you flirted with others! Here are some tips they suggest:
Spend some time really looking at your spouse. Glance at him for a few seconds and then look away. Bat your eyelashes, lick your lips and look deeply into his eyes. Flash him a brilliant "just for you" smile and if you're feeling a little daring, lean in for that kiss after looking longingly at the shape of his mouth, the fullness of his lips, get the picture? Wink, wink. By the way, a saucy wink works well too.
Touch him, often and casually. A simple hand placed on an arm, or rub on the back in passing.
Send your spouse flowers, candy, or balloons, just because. Leave a note tucked in his luggage if he is traveling, or at home on his pillow or pockets. My husband use to place little notes on the mirror in the bathroom, so I would always see them first thing. I’m so glad I saved them all.
There are many different ways to do some spontaneous flirting....use your imagination and bat those eyes!
