After dinner out recently, my companion remarked that the waitress was really flirting with another member of our party. I replied that she was just being friendly and working the tip, so to speak. This evolved into a discussion on just what exactly is flirting. I’ll try to condense the conversation into definitions. Basically…

Her definition is…. Being outgoing and friendly, above and beyond how well you know that particular person is flirting.

My definition is… Extroverted conversation & body language, touching, etc, with a sexual undertone (emphasis on the sexual undertone) is flirting.

At what point does a conversation with a member of the opposite sex cross the line from friendly to flirting???

Well, Slo, if she started taking her clothes off you can bet she is flirting


I worked a lot of years as a bartender and waitress, and you can bet your ass I flirted with the men, who are usually the ones that leave the tips. The problem arose when they handed me a slip of paper with their phone number on it, but that usually could be joked away too. Mild flirtations for any reason, should never cause a problem, some people are just the flirty type.


Well i havent asked you for a while, and i am flirty by nature.....so wanna fuck?

well I wait tables and I talk to everyone who is friendly in return. I am also a touchy person. And sometimes I still get hugs goodbye from my customers and that is male and female. And as much as I hate to admit it. Sometimes people think it is flirting its not, just the way I am sooo your companion may have been mistaken some servers like me (older) are just old school and really like to be around people.

The waitress is what started the conversation...... but I didn't want to limit it to that. In ANY situation..... picnik... in a bar.... at work...... is being overly friendly flirting........ or does there need to be a sexual undertone to be considered flirting?
