A Flirt, and Proud of It

Now I have been ACCUSED of being a flirt for the longest time. And seriously, in the beginning I was actually rather distressed. A secondary school kid, trying his best to do good, saving his first kiss for the gal he will spend the rest of his life with. I was positively stressed out, about being called a flirt by my comrades.

Can't help it, can I? I love women, I want women, and I figured a little earlier on, that there were better ways in showing my interest in ways that goes above and beyond just panting, ogling, and pawing.

Some time in university, I heard the phrase,"Edmund, you're a flirt" one too many times, it doesn't help that many of my friends are gals, and I come from a course with a gal to guy ration of 2 to 1, and a major with a ration of 4 to 1.

And some time after the 2357th time I heard it, something profound hit me. I suddenly thought to myself, "Hey you know, maybe that's not such a bad thing."

Being a flirt essentially means, that you're attractive to the opposite sex. That you are conversant, friendly, open and interesting. That you actually appeal to many members of the opposite sex. And that you're comfortable enough with the attention to go along with it, and actually like it.

And moving on, I reckon that maybe everyone should have a little flirt in them. After all, what's life without a little excitement and danger? What's life without a little twist, and a tease? And you're there adding that little spark to the ladies.

HOW CAN THAT BE BAD? In fact, won't the same things that make me a good flirt help me out in other areas as well? Confidence, Charm, Articulation, Sensitivity, and being persuasive is absolutely BRILLIANT!

In fact, let's set out to be the best flirt I can be!

And so from that day forward, to the people that tell me I'm a flirt, I say, Why thank you very much for that compliment. Yes, I am. And I am trying to be a better one all the time.

How can flirting ever be bad?? it's good in so many ways, makes you more appealing to the opposite sex and gives you discounts on already discounted items :p

And the best part.. it can lead on to something much more interesting and exciting *wink*
