Flirting, for the sheer fun of it......

And maybe flirting's not the right word, maybe it's just my philosophy about having fun in life....

It seems like in our culture today, people treat each other with a minimum of manners and courtesy (if that - sometimes it becomes outright rudeness) and for many, that has become a way of life. I don't want to live that way, in a little isolated cocoon of existence with a minimum of interaction.

So.....I think it's worthwhile to play at life, to have fun while you go about all the usual ordinary things and tasks that make up real life. To engage other people in your world and leave them chuckling and smiling can be a very rewarding experience, and it opens you up to all sorts of new and entertaining experiences. People can be so much fun, in so many unexpected ways.....

For instance, a little while ago, I was on business travel in Southern California. It was a gray and dreary, misty day, and my colleague and I hadn't gotten to go kayaking like we had planned on our vacation day (waaaaaahhhhh………….work interfered). We were waiting to be called for a meeting, so we decided to go to Laguna Beach and explore all the little art galleries. I began reading through a coffee table dog book "If you only knew how I smell you", including reading aloud particularly funny passages and we both were laughing hysterically. I also found “The Sock Monkey Book”, which is a tongue-in-cheek collection of portraits of famous sock monkeys, along with their biographies.

Finally, I picked up the books and took them up to the counter, still smiling. The clerk took the books, and told me, "with a smile like that, you could drive away the June gloom ...." Well, how could I resist a line like that?! So I laughed and we stayed and talked with him for a while, and he was a very funny, engaging guy.

Or three years ago online, there was the flirtatious comment across 2000 miles: “A comment if I may? ..... You have the most beautiful legs I’ve ever seen.” Nothing more than a fun, throwaway flirtation, yet a lasting friendship grew from that moment.

I think if everyone had attitudes more like golden retrievers, life would be much sweeter...

Legs... you nailed it! Flirting is an important ingredient in life. It lowers barriers, extends personal space, and opens us up to the possibilities of new connections. It also provides us wonderfully creative moments where, dare I say it, we may discover good chemistry.

I really love your blogs. They are thoughtful and playful. We all can be very serious and professional - all business - from 9 to 5 (flirting in the workplace is complicated these days). But it's really important that we expand our personal connections in fun ways the rest of the time. Your blog is a warm and inviting reminder of that!

Just one man's opinion.

Execsuitefun - Thanks for your compliments! You know, the worst that can happen is, everyone goes away with their day a little sweeter and a smile, even if for only a few minutes.

... it's amazing how one tiny smile can change the balance of a crappy day... into one of joy!...

... they say it takes only a few facial muscles to smile... and many more to frown... so ... unless I missed my guess... the ones who frown may just be working out the other muscles in their face... lol

... oh well... I guess that's why I have so many laugh lines!... and wish to share those lines with complete strangers... if only to give them a chance to enjoy life... as much as I do.

... I have to agree with Exec... very refreshing blog...

I had forgotten how much fun flirting is and how good it can make both people. Getting my game back, don't ever want to stop flirting again. By the way, nice leg!

Come play naked in the sunshine and dance naked under the stars.

You are a lady with a wonderful outlook on life. You come from a place and period in time, as I do, when courtesy, politeness, and intellect where looked upon as desirable traits. It is so refreshing to know that there are others who have similar beliefs and desires to make this a better world for all. It would be a pleasure to become acquainted and to develop a long lasting friendship. May your life be as enjoyable as you are delightful.


You do have beautiful legs and a fantastic body to go with your intelligence and sophistication. Perhaps at one time you were a "Bond Girl".

It is surely ironic that you broach this subject. My folks were members of a group of friends that all met in San Francisco back in the late 50's and remain friends (the survivors anyway) to this day. One of the things that occurred to me, after attending a funeral for one of those friends recently, was the sensibilities of that time. The men all wore suits, the women mainly wore dresses. People were generally polite with little/none of the rude behavior that is tolerated or expected today. You knew your neighbors and almost didn't need to lock your car, even in the city. And friendships were made to last, as were marriages. My folks were the only ones who ended up divorcing out of 15 or so couples (lucky me). As for flirting, well, I have to imagine it was done with class and dignity rather than women flashing their tits and such. My how times have changed.

Yet one of the benefits of the times we live in is this very technology that is bringing me into you home from so far away. Without it I seriously doubt that our "virtual" paths would ever have crossed. And that would be a shame. Cheers.

As thinking creatures (as opposed to simply 'reacting' as animals), we should learn from history - take the good aspects of the past and integrate them with the technology that we have today.

I agree with you - there is a grace and elegance from the past that is missing in our lives today. However, every once in a while you come upon someone special who views the world in the same way as you do....and no matter where you find them, that is priceless.
