Are We A Finer Flirt At 40-Plus?Page 2 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
I don't even consider it flirting anymore. Flirting to me was always a game to try and see if someone was interested without worrying about being rejected (I'm talking about the flirting one does when they notice someone across the room, not the flirting being done once you've actually met and talked). At this age confidence carries the day and if I'm interested in meeting someone, I'll say so. Being open and honest about something is much better to me. And my spark is much brighter now that it was in my 20s. Also, I've never been shy about discussing sex with my female friends; we've had some great and funny conversations about the subject. It's also easier now to discuss it with men, although there are still some men who are uncomfortable with it; they want to know what to do but they really don't want to be told how, not even in a subtle manner, lol. if peopel can't be open and honest about what they want sexually, then I don't see how they can be open and honest about anything else - and vice versa.

I'm not sure if I'm a better flirt or not... I'm more confident. I'm definately enjoying it more. Yeah I guess I have to agree with rejection be damned...

While I'm more confident and open than I was in earlier years, I've had so little opportunity to flirt that a refresher course is almost mandatory. Wonder if they're offering on at the local satellite campus?

I, for one, never flirt, and am always on my best behavior.

Oh yes, I've got it down to a fine art, I've been single much too long so I've had time to practise.

I must admit that my short term memory has gone, caused by all the clutter of data in my brain. Honestly, I haven't got a clue how to flirt anymore.

I am in need to someone to practice on.

charlie girl,

Do you think we've had too much practice? And your right flirting is innocent fun for both parties. Its also an ego booster too. Correct?

Would you care to elaborate on the "things" that you can do that most others can't? Do you give demonstrations of these "things"?

Is it because you are a flirt or because you are 40-Plus or a combination of both?

Thanks to the one who posted the definition of flirting. I've always thought of myself as flirty but I never thought of it as having sexual undertones. I guess what I like to do is joke around with men and women of all ages. I adore clever, witty repartee. I sometimes call that teasing. I like to be teased and tease others in a gentle way. I can see where that gets a bad connotation also. When I was in high school they had a name for girls who teased guys sexually and then didn't come across....PTs....and I don't mean the cute little car.

Oh My, I'm an outrageous flirt! Everyone tells me so and they love it! I tend to come across as being innocent with the atmosphere of flirt added in. Works wonders with shy men! I "love" being a flirt, but that's always been my personality. Anyone online that I can flirt with? I need a flirt fix. Kat

I guess I just had too much trouble getting rid of men who flirt with me when I am not interested in them. The only flirting I do, is with my S/O.

I should Hope we are better flirts at this age! If not... we are going in the wrong direction. Arn't we supposed to be getting more learned and wise with maturity?

for those of you who seem to think flirting is childish and better left behind, I could not disaggree more. Flirting, when done with class, is a high form of human interaction and only leads to pleasantry. flirting need not be only relationship oriented. It need not be only sexually oriented. It is just a wonderful form of communication and interplay.

In truth healthy flirting...(and I stress Healthy), is a brave and courageous act. So much better than hiding behind our cold rocks or under our damp bridges in wait for prey. flirting says..." I am wonderful, I feel great about myself... I love life, and if I am available I am not afraid to show it openly"

I'll agree, waking up with a smile on my face is priceless! Being over 45 means we can flirt all we want to, we've got nothing to lose.

Yes, I was born a flirt; nothing has changed......and yes (as Horselady sez) "it is an art"

One of my favorite things to say is: So, enough about ME, what do YOU think about ME?!

LOL, LOL

Smiles and Grins and the eternal optimist and flirt!
