What’s Wrong With That?

Recently – and not for the first time – I was called a shameless flirt.

It was clearly not meant as a compliment, but my instant reaction was “what’s wrong with that?”  I’m not hurting anyone, including myself, by what some may call shameless flirtation.  And some of what they think of as shameless flirtation may only be the “touchy-feely” way I was raised.  I’ve read all kinds of articles about how some scientists think casual touching should be interpreted, which seem to clearly disregard the intentional aspects of such touches.  I mean, really, when I touch someone, I generally know what I mean by it.   Don’t you?  And if you don’t, shouldn’t you?

And then we hear all the heavy analysis about what it “means” if I play with my hair, or touch your arm, or hold my elbows, or cross my legs, or whatever.  Not that I think there is nothing real about “body language”, but it seems we’re trying too hard.  We’re over-thinking.  Maybe my hair is in my eyes.  Maybe I’m making a point.  Maybe I’m cold.  Maybe I’m showing off a great pair of shoes (highly likely).

Halloween flirting.

Halloween flirting.

Or maybe, just maybe, I am flirting with you.
