    I wish I could always skip the flirting part and get right down to business. My attempt to flirt turns out to be something very intense every time.

    Flirts are boring at best, deceitful at worst, and irritating, mostly.
    ^^ This.

    I don't flirt, either; not sure I ever have. I do joke and banter from time to time, and occasionally indulge in the odd practical joke, but there is no sexual overtone to it, and it is not how I would approach someone I was interested in dating.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    I love NTs, this thread is hilarious

    For some reason I seem to be the kind of person who flirts indiscriminately without realizing it (perhaps it's that NF in me), that is until I find someone I'm really interested in. Either way, I do it to make people walk away smiling from any conversation they have with me.

    If you're interested on working on flirting, perhaps you can set goals to flirt with complete strangers (little flirts). Practice spontaneously complimenting 3 separate people on something about them. If you keep that and possibly other little games up each day, it'll become habit and after that it's all down hill.

    You don't look that bad today. Gets'em everytime.

    Could you give an example, please? I can't seem to make it over the hurdle of actually making my flirting attempts OBVIOUS. I feel... scared? Stupid? Assuming?? I don't even know what the word would be. I do know that I tend to treat everyone with that same "playful-banter-that-gets-annoying" kind of thing... but anything more overt I can't seem to manage. In fact, if anyone did wonder if I liked them, they'd think 'Well... but she does that with everyone...' or even worse, I start avoiding them altogether.

    LOL!

    Embrace the possibilities.

    (I'm glad my actions are being positively reinforced.)
