    What constitutes flirting? And how is that different from simply being friendly or joking around?

    When I voted, I voted on the basis of whom is more likely going to charm their interest.
    That was one of the questions I wanted to discuss. What IS flirting? Obviously it's a way to court someone and induce them to form certain impressions of you in their mind. But there's a common element to all flirting. Some ideas:

    Flirting creates value for the flirtor through words or actions
    The words or actions signal status or available resources
    The resources can be material or psychological (happiness, calmness) through humor

    I love it when you talk like this.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    flirting is an action that simultaneously creates comfort and tension.

    it builds attraction via pushing and pulling at the same time.

    Flirting =~ Carrot on a stick. You can't say the horse doesn't enjoy it -- there's always the allure of potential, sudden closure, too.

    Clarification: ...The Supplement also depicts a person trying to entice a donkey to move by dangling a carrot in front of it, which represents a completely different use of the phrase because there's no punishment involved...
    Not really.

    teasing on its own gets tiresome after a while. eventually a smart donkey says, "fuck this".

    and always getting teased with no build up or at least the idea that there could be a chance of escalation does qualify as punishment.

    There is one mode of flirting that is a smidge manipulative. By making a person feel accepted and praised one moment and rejected and insecure the next, it can increase their sense of attachment to the other person. Many people have certain areas where they need to feel validated, so by giving people a taste of that validation and then taking it away, they can become a little addicted to the process. Inconsistency is a primary form of manipulation keeping the other person at a disadvantage of less power.

    Of course there are more innocent versions of this, and some flirting wouldn't even fit that process, but i'm just saying. Perception and intent are both factors in this. When people are equally matched in their communication style it probably helps it be just balanced and fun. Sometimes it is a display of wit to show oneself fit or whatever. It can also be a way to show interest w/o seeming too needy. In that case it can decrease the pressure on the other person which is the opposite of what i was describing earlier.

    *sniff sniff* crybaby?
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
