I am not what I would consider "a flirt
". I joke around, but I have been a bit serious at times. This isn't a bad thing, It's usually quite innocent and with people who know me quite well. This has gotten me in trouble though..
I have been known to flirt with people I know quite well off-line
. This has caused a fair bit of trouble I admit. Sometimes boys don't realize a "*smooch
*" in email, is just some ascii. They assume I am looking for a little more next time we hang out. At first I thought it was just miscommunication, until it happened a few times. They assumed my sillyness online was just affection I was too scared to go through with in real life. I don't do this anymore, without properly stating my "feelings" before hand. I guess this way feelings avoid getting messed with, and I can avoid uncomfortable advances.
This why flirting
online with people I hang out with in real life can be hell!
