    When you see an attractive person, what goes in your mind...To Flirt or not to Flirt?

    Ruchira,  this is the first time I had a question appear on my page.  You asked, so I'll answer. I didn't feel I should ignore your question, especially because of where I ran across it.  If I saw an attractive person, what goes in my mind is what the circumstance is.  Are we stuck in an elevator?  Then of course we would aquaint.  Is the person with their girlfriend/spouse. Then definitely not.  You know I find that it is not the exterior that appeals.  I find it is the inner beauty that shines through in maybe something said or a kind gesture.  So if I were to meet someone in a social setting, for example, and the person was not so alluring in the looks and/or physique department, that's alright ~ I find it's what one is made of that counts.  Have a good night!

    When I see a beautiful woman,I will try to savor the moment like looking at a scenery or painting. Thoughts of to flirt or not to flit tend to becloud the mind.Just let things happen naturally.smile

    I'm naturally friendly to strangers which was sometimes misconstrued as being flirtatious in my younger years, but now that I'm an old lady I can say and do anything I want and I'm just a harmless old bitty not to be taken seriously. (smile)

    I stare at them until they either smile at me or get creeped out.  If they smile, I smile back and if I'm in the mood I might approach.  If they get creeped out or disgusted there is a strong possiblity that they are not attracted to me.  At this point I stop looking and erase them from my memory right there on the spot. Why chase the unattainable? smile

    It depends on the situation. Regaurdless, I would always be friendly and respectful. If we hit it off, then the flirting begins, and if that works, then I become a dirty old man!!!

    If I'm single, the mood is right, he's not busy, he's "eligible," and the situation is appropriate, perhaps I would approach him. I'm not sure about flirting but I also would let things happen naturally through the conversation.

    I am wayyy too shy - so even if I were single, I would never even approach a guy, let alone flirt.

    To flirt, it's my first instinct... walking away has come with becoming an adult.

    I do appreciate beautiful creatures but as a person with wholesome personality, I will never flirt. I will simply keep in myself whatever admiration I will have in mind. Flirting for me is done at the right time and place and of course, with the right person. Be attractive or not, it doesn't matter at all.

    I never flirt....NOT! I think sometimes its a natural instinct, especially if you look great that day. Nothing extreme just a little smirk or extra eye contact. Never more than that.

    I completely want to flirt when I see an attractive male, but I am one who certainly enjoys the natural flow of things. When I see a very attractive male, my heart starts to pound a little and I have to tell myself to whoa it down with the flirtnESS. My personality totally comes across as flirting, so it's a little harder for me not to come across as too flirty. However, I must allow that person to know I appreciate their attractiveness. When you're in a relationship trying to stay loyal, especially if it's a long distance one, it's absolutely a must to tone your emotions down a bit. Regardless, it's challenging not to want to flirt when you see a really attractive person :-)

    When I see an attractive woman, I must admit I look at her from top to bottom; usually it starts from bottom to top. If she smiles, I usually smile back and see if a conversation could spark up.

    I am Chinese girl. Flirting is a bad thing in our culture, so I won't flirt at all when I meet an attractive man, but I may steal glances.

    To Flirt!  Granted no one wants someone to throw awful pick up lines at them all night, so I try to actually hold a conversation with the person, and have some fun with it!  What's the worst that could happen?  They turn you down and you never see each other again!

    my first thought is "woof!"  next thought is "you're 69 years old, you dummy!  you've forgotten what you're woofing about."

    I don't flirt.   don't want to send the wrong message.  I always leave it up to the other person.

    I am friendly and outgoing with most, but if I find someone attractive I tend to go out of my way not to be. Wouldn't want anyone knowing I find them appealing...God for bid I tell them so either. smile I wish I did flirt, personally, I probably would have more people in my life I could relate to and become friends with...Good question for me.

    Number one that comes to mind is 'sensibility' & 'morals.'  -If the person is in a relationship - the simple answer is no. Though I do not see any harm in being flirtatious if this is what your heart desires. However, the way you go about it is a entirely different topic all together...

    That depends speaking as a happily married woman, the only thought is that the gentlemen is attractive. Back in my high school days I would have flirted with the gentlemen I found attractive.

    I've been happily married for 18 years, but that doesn't mean I'm blind. When I see an attractive woman I look. Let me say again-I look. That's it. A beautiful smile or beautiful eyes always catch my attention. But I never ever disrespect my wife by looking when we are together.
