It’s all fun and games until someone’s actual words become a game that you can’t stand being a part of. Especially when you are engaged in a back and forth flirtation. Nobody seems to really mean what they say and you are stuck reading between the (text) lines.
Bottom line, it’s not fun for either women or men. Not only do we overanalyze what the other might mean, but we also have an anxiety attack about sending the perfect response. Don’t we all wish there was a simple manual to tell us exactly what our crush means when they flirt? Sure, it may take most of the “fun” and mystery out of flirting, but a lot of confused hearts can also be saved with a quick “How To.”
And I have one for you. Here are a few phrases decoded that are used by men and women when flirting.
I love when it’s raining. Time to get cozy.
Women send this text, tweet, or Facebook message to let you know they want to get physically close with you. If it’s a Facebook status update and you’re the one she is in a “flirtationship” with, she probably means you. And by probably I mean definitely.
Yesterday, I saw your twin.
I will say something like this to let a guy know I was thinking about him throughout the day when I don’t want to tell him directly. If you are a guy reading this, get ready to ask her (or me) to hang out soon. She’ll say yes.
You’re so funny.
Truly, guys, you may not be that funny. Your lady is simply complimenting you. Never stop trying to make us laugh, though. It goes a long way, and if we are actually saying this, we do love your effort.
This simply means I miss you and I’m too nervous to strike up a conversation. So I’m telling you this to get you thinking about why we haven’t been in communication. Both sexes are guilty of guilting their partner this way.
I bet you can’t guess what I’m thinking about…
It’s you. He’s thinking about you. This is his way to get the conversation started. Your guy is probably hoping you respond with a, “Me.”
There you have it! A brief lesson on some ways to decipher those flirty lines we might hear from our romantic interest. Which one are you more prone to use when getting your flirt on?
