How to Recognize Flirting?
In western culture, explicitly expressing sexual interest in someone is considered inappropriate and unacceptable. But that’s why we have flirting as an appropriate tool to express we’re interested in someone. Flirting is a good way to show someone we see them as a potential sexual and romantic partner. Also, flirting is fun, and if done playfully, without any greater intentions, it often feels very good and boosts your confidence. But how to recognize if someone is flirting with you?
Firstly and most importantly, pay attention to the body language. If someone is trying to get closer to you physically or touching you often, it might be the sign of flirting. Also, if someone is drawing attention to some parts of their body they find attractive, it can also mean they’re flirting with you. However, it is easy to misinterpret the signs of flirting.
