I do not do flirting......and that is that..........
No offense....but I think it is really stupid and immature.............
I hate when somebody tries to flirt with me.......GROW up!!!
If someone had true feeling about me, I would really appreciate it if he would tell me straight away and not hide behind the "flirts"
DO NOT MAKE ME UNLEASH MY INNER DEMON
Neither. It's just fun! =DAnywho, do you think that they have no life, or are just kids with overflowing hormones?
It's relaxing to go just that much further in a friendly relationship. It just shows that the two individuals feel that much more comfortable to be around each other. And that's always a good thing.

I didn't have much experience with this in the beginning here at Anime Online. Lately though I have. Just a couple of nights ago, I have five female members and two male members PMing me all at once. The males were not flirting, but all the female members were, to one point or another.
How do you know when flirting is really flirting, just being friendly, or playing around.
With some people the flirting is obvious, right out, smack you across the face flirting.
With others the flirting is not even really flirting. They are just excited, pumped-up, happy people who often find themselves in awkward positions, when their friendliness is mistaken for flirting.
Then there is the subtle flirt. The person who traverses the edge of the flirting precipice. They might want to flirt, but may be afraid to take the leap. Yet they hope someone will hold out their hand, and show them the way.
Worse are the people who flirt with you just to toy with you.
I am more than a bit shy in person, so I find it hard to start flirting with someone. Yet I have to admit I do enjoy being flirted with, most of the time. However, let's face it, none of us like to have someone flirt with us that we do not feel any kind of attraction for.
I find it hard to wade through the flirting that may happen on a site like Anime online. You can not hear their tone, see their body language, or see their facial expression. How do you know if they are even flirting, or if they are, do they really mean it. How do you learn to feel your way through, and deal with online flirting.
It takes awhile for me to start flirting back, even just friendly flirting. I don't want someone to get the wrong idea.
I even hurt one of the girls feelings. I think she was just friendly flirting with me over a few days, and finally I made a teasing, slightly flirtatious comment back. She took it wrong, and she said she felt sad about it. She took it completely the opposite way I meant it. I Pm'd her back that I didn't mean it that way, but she hasn't answered back. I admit I enjoyed her friendly flirts. (the -smiles-, the -sighs-, the -giggles-, etc). I felt it was all friendly, but perhaps I was wrong, maybe that is why I hurt her feelings. She is a nice, sweet, friendly person. Could I have handled it any different, maybe, but when you can not hear or see the person, how do you know?
I feel their is a limit, and sometimes people do cross it. You try to ask them to back off without hurting them, or having it turn ugly, but sometimes you can not avoid it. At the same time, you don't want to discourage flirting, you may miss out on someone really great.
There is a difference though. With flirting and leading someone on.
When you flirt, you flirt. When you lead someone on you make it clear that you're not just flirting, when in reality you could give two craps for the person you're getting intimate - I use the term loosely - with.
I'll admit to being asked out on the internet, and not just here on AO, but nothing ever comes of it because I just don't do online dating. It doesn't so much as piss me off as it does amuse me, and it's cute sometimes as well.
Some say that it's pointless and immature, but hey, I'd rather have fun on the net than to come off as an unfriendly and insociable individual.
And rave, I've never thought you were a girl before. xD
I guess online flirting depends on how far you take it and how far the other person lets it go. I have to admit I've done my fair share of flirting and I've even dated a couple of people in this thread. Even someone that said it is stupid. I don't see a problem as Divine said giving someone a hug if they are down or If it's someone you consider family saying hugs and kisses. As others say it's flattering when you get hit on and it comes to a point where it has no effect and you start to get pissed off. Like if the person knows your married and they continue to hit on you or if you asked them politely to stop and then I consider it harassment. Flattery only gets you so far to before you become a pest. I admit that if you consider -hugs- or -glomps- flirting then I'm guilty. It's my way of greeting my friends. It's how I've always greeted them. It's how I would greet them in real life. What I really hate is if someone is flirting with me right in front of my husband. It drives me nuts. Then I have to hear him ***** about it for hours on end. Though he has his rights to do it.
As for mistaking you as a guy...ummm...I never did. I mean I kinda dated you back in the day so I knew you were not a guy.

it doesn't appeal to me... online flirting just isn't my style... and i think it isn't appropriate to use the internet for that purpose... much more AO... i mean... flirting with someone on the net is just (i believe) an attempt to get into bed with someone, to play a prank on someone and anything of the like...
i don't like it...
i'll choose to love whoever i wish to love and nobody can stop me from doing so ----
