Host: Why do we have to flirt?
Gloria MacDonald: We do have to flirt. It is just part of human nature, particularly women. Women have to learn how to flirt. I hear lots of women say, But I am no good at flirting. I can't stand flirting. Why do I have to do it? Why can't I just be me?
Well, the fact of the matter is we have to let the man know in no uncertain terms that we are interested in him so that he is willing to stick his neck out on the line to make the next move. So it is just like if you really, really want to find a job, you learn how to interview, because you need that job. Well, if you really, really want a relationship, then you have to learn how to be good at flirting. Otherwise, the man is never going to have a clue that you are interested in him and he won't be willing to stick his neck out on the line and ask you out.
