Host: What are some reasons for flirting?
Gloria MacDonald: Another thing about flirting, often women complain that men just don't communicate, but the question really is, have we as women learned to communicate with men in a way that they can understand?
So flirting is communicating with a man in a way that he can understand. There are really three key reasons why we have to learn how to communicate if we truly want that relationship. One is, that men want to avoid rejection, so flirting is a way of showing them that they will not be rejected. The second thing is the reason for flirting is men are looking for a woman who is attracted to them. So we need to show them that we are attracted to them and the third thing is that men are not willing to chase a woman who shows no interest in them. So men still hunt a bit in different ways, at different times, but we have to show them that it is okay that we will show interest in them if they start chasing us. So as women, we really need to learn how to communicate with men,communicate with a man that you are attracted to him, that you don't intend to reject him and that you are interested in him. So the question is exactly, how do you do this? What are the signs that he will get that you won't reject him and that you are interested in him?
