Hi everyone, happy Thursday! I hope your week is going well. I was able to get to yoga class for the 1st time in several weeks and that always makes me happy. 🙂
Last week I was at dinner with my sister, uncle, and nieces.During the duration of our dinner discussion my nieces were good-naturedly teasing me about my lack of forwardness in my interactions with men that I might be interested in getting to know better. Actually, it was a very humorous discussion but it really got me to thinking about my personality.
Truth: not only am I reserved in certain situations, I have absolutely no idea how to flirt. None whatsoever. People have tried to help me with this aspect of my personality to no avail. I vividly remember my college roommate trying to help me. ( She could always get the boys and definitely had “the look”.) ” Look at the guy you like, smile and look away. Then, look again but hold your gaze longer.” She would advise. I was way too shy for any of that. I still am. I may look and smile but then I have to look away. There is no way I am going to get the second longer gaze in there. Plus, you know I will be blushing like crazy. Then there is the flirtatious talk. I never know what to make of it. Are they serious or are they kidding? Or, are they seriously kidding? It must be a genetic defect. A recessive anti-flirt gene.
Trying to take my niece’s loving advice to be more assertive, I did think deeply about whether or not to be more flirtations and outgoing around men. Bottom line, it’s not going to happen. It would be kind of fun to have a whole new persona that included a flirtatious nature but that is just not me. I think I am pretty cool with all my eccentricities. One of the most enduring of which is not knowing how to flirt.
As always, I would love to hear from you. Feel free to share your best flirting stories.:)
Thanks for stopping by the blog!
Until next time,
