Overt Flirting


Freezes me up. It should be fun, just eventually ends in me looking like an idiot.

I need to practice. <XD

It's probably the most anxiety provoking thing for me. I have never had a relationship with a girl, and trying to flirt when there are other people around... So much anxiety there. I would love to be comfortable doing it sometime.

I know completely what you mean.
In fact, I don't think I have ever overtly flirted.
If I tried it would probably just look totally unnatural (and it would feel that way, too!).
I just tend to act pleasant towards somebody and hope they fancy me
It's probably a matter of practice, though.
Good luck, and remember, you probably don't look as idiotic as you think you do.

I feel your pain. I get really uncomfortable and freeze up too. Sometimes I think my gf is disappointed by me when she flirts with me in public and I just stand there grinning and giggling like an idiot.

Speak sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.

No thank you. I get uncomfortable after a few secs, anxious, start making awkward gestures or body movements and then get embarrassed...cause I'm awkward like that. It's pretty funny and frustrating at the same time.
