Flirting is a common form of social interaction whereby one person obliquely indicates a romantic or sexual interest towards another. It can consist of conversation, body language, or brief physical contact. It may be one-sided or reciprocated (encouraged) with intentions of getting to know that person on a higher level.

Flirting may involve speaking and acting in a way that suggests greater intimacy than is generally considered appropriate to the relationship, without actually saying or doing anything that breaches any serious social norms. Every relationship today has its first step in flirting. Even the most holy guy sometime play the dice - flirt.

Tayotina,...It's definitely NOT ok by me...we don't want ppl knowing the details eh..when flirting becomes open, it ceases to be exciting. It needs to be secret, with a hint of ''the forbidden''..that's what makes it fun...yep.

No I don't think so. it is all about leading the person on or giving them ideas without any intention(at least initially) of going any further, but if you go further and kiss, smooch and feel without going further then it's teasing. By the way there is a thin line between flirting and teasing

Flirting is a way of testing the market to know your true worth.

In the business world you often go out into the market tendering to see if you are still getting a good price from your regular vendors, flirting is the same, provided you don't take it further....

Ladies, ladies, so u mean flirting is not dangerous for men too?...esp married men?..u kept talking about how YOU 'go through' the consequences. See...whenever I'm on a looong fuel queue, i discovered tha i can shunt my car ahead towards the pump by simply flirting a litle bit wih the female pump attendant...my wife hates it of course, but hey it has it's rewards. Whatcha think?...Hey Tayo...nice to see u in here again!

hello people,

Take it easy with me. I didn't say my definition of flirting was correct, did I? That is how I view it and I expected you to give your own opinion.

I enjoy flirting. It's harmless. Infact I do it a lot. There's nothing wrong with it. It is just playing with someone as shockreaction rightly said. But one needs to be careful so you don't fall in love with whoever you are flirting with. I know what am talking about. (It has ever happened to me)

Not necessarily.. and it can be harmless. I'd leave my girl soon if other guys don't admire her, and admiration is usually expressed by flirting.

@Seun, when you say copyrighted are you talking about the transfer news or the news on Oruma and Taiwo?

Flirting means fraternizing with somebody you supposedly should not fraternize with.

flirting has nothing to do with toiling.

Erm... flirting is not "toiling" with someone's heart. Flirting is more like, playing with someone, and you don't necessarily have to be in a relationship with someone to flirt with that person. Of course, you can also flirt with your significant other.

I think i will agree with you Ejyro. And i think flirting is bad because toiling with someones heart is not good at all.

I flirt on daily basis. That don't mean i have to have a great relationship with the person. Flirting is just for the fun of it.. or it could lead you somewhere. Flirting blah blah.

Haba flirting is definitely not the same as having as relationship. Flirting has to do more with innuendo, rather than actual dating. FLirting can be innocent with nothing concrete coming from it, or it can progress to ................

I leave the rest to your imagination

Well.................hmmmmmmmm I think to flirt means to date someone when there is no intention of getting married to such person. It can also be reffered to as 'fling'. To toil with someone's heart, knowing quite well things will not work out between you and such a person.

That's what I think.
