7 Flirting Mistakes You Don't Want to Make ...


Ah, the subtle art of flirting;

it’s a tricky one and it’s not always easy to know what the flirting mistakes you don’t want to make are.

Flirting is, in the hands of some women, a lethal weapon – in others (myself included)… not so much.

But you shouldn’t hold back through a lack of confidence – flirting, whether just a bit of fun or the start of a beautiful relationship, can leave you feeling great and give you a little esteem boost.

Just make sure you remember the flirting mistakes you don’t want to make.


This is definitely one of the flirting mistakes you don't want to make, or you could wake up cringing in the morning.

Most social flirting happens at maybe a party, or a bar.

And that probably means the drinks will be flowing and downing a few cocktails for some Dutch courage will be tempting.

By all means, have a drink to relax – but remember there’s a fine line between very brave, and very drunk.

Thanks @Heather Jensen ...I saw him quickly again today, he came by my desk to grab a book. My admin said that was the second time he came by, first time no book, second time he got the book and said light reading. I hit him on the shoulder to say hello. It's always confusing when it comes to work and play. We all have the IM system here, but a friend said don't MSG again you did it before and he got the hint he can too. He seems interested by his body language but he doesn't say it.

HI Katarina! It sounds to me like he is just a little bit shy -- or maybe that he doesn't want to mix his personal life with his work. I'd see if you can flirt with him a little bit more in person, if he doesn't respond, then I would take the hint. :)

Is this a case of "he's just not into me?"

I like a guy at work, i flirted a little with him. I believe my signs are obvious. Before the Christmas holidays I IM'd him on our network and told him to stop by for cookies which he did in 5 sec. He remembers a lot of what i say. Later that day I said if he had Time to grab a coffee it was 4pm "said who drinks coffee at 4pm fail and he just had one 20 min ago" i then responded "I have it, and he could have asked me if I wanted one, fail" he said "this is true, mutual fail". After that he sent me an email to thank me for the cookies. Then we didn't talk during the holidays and now we are back at work. It's only the 3rd day back and he said hey once or twice when I saw him in the hallways that was it...what is my next step?
