Home' LOTL : June 2004 Contents Eons ago, when I was in primary school, my head was
filled with the (foolish) notion that a dashing young prince
would whisk me off my feet to dance life's tango. When I hit
puberty and Blue Light discos, it became apparent to me that
cutting the rug with the girls was far more appealing. What's
more, I hoped to do more than just cutting that rug! Which
left me confused. If I could no longer expect that Prince
Charming would lead me in the dance of flirting, how could
I meet Princess Enchanting?
Some sistas are natural born killers with flirting. For these
gifted women, 43 beers are not a necessity before they
contemplate approaching the object of their desire. So how does
one learn to emulate these creatures? Particularly when there's
the daunting possibility of rejection to extinguish our carnal
desires? Can anyone learn to flirt when the art lies not so much
in the act itself, but in how that act is executed?
Lesbian flirting is like shovelling. There are those who like
spading (touch the surface), shovelling (dig beneath the surface)
and there's my personal favourite, open cut miners (no simple
brush of the arm but more a pelvic thrust!).
There are three simple steps when it comes to flirting --
attitude, technique and execution. Any girl can go from "plain
Jane" to "sexy Jane" with the right attitude. Confidence is sexy
and captivating. What about the technique? Catch their eye and
hold your gaze. I like to call this "lock and load". Caressing your
wine glass is a signal but what about us beer drinkers -- not sure
if running my finger around a schooner would be considered
flirting. And there's the flick of the hair. Well, that's a bit hard
with short hair. But we cannot go past the striking eyebrow lift
(perfect for chicks with sexy short cuts).

Good flirters are great saleswomen; they know how to
market themselves. It's about not being afraid to take risks and
seizing the opportunity. The first impression counts. As the
most evolved of species, it's disconcerting just how much
impact non-verbal flirting has on our chances at lust and love.
Body language is the mistress and must never be under-rated.
And what of the modern generation who rely so heavily on
the Internet and SMS to facilitate their quest for passion? Word
selection is of vital importance when attempting to convey
intentions. Websites have spawned many a modern day love
story. Yet chemistry cannot truly be tested until that physical
meeting. What happens when the Linda Carter that you've
been picturing in her Wonder Woman D cup turns out to be
not so wondrous? Choose your flirting arena carefully.
Ready now to try those new moves or brush up on those
forgotten ones? The perfect party is coming up -- Ready? Set.
