You're like a fixed gear bike, fun to ride and hard to stop

For Halloweeen I'm going to be Valentine's Day and pass out homemade Valentines to people. I need a lot of repurposed pick-up lines and dirty jokes and terrible puns for the cards. Think "I CHOO-CHOO-CHOOSE YOU!" for drunken adults. [more inside]

How easy do I or do I not have it as a woman in the dating world?

All right. How difficult is it for women to flirt with men *really*? I often hear that just smiling at a dude is good enough, but how true is that? What tactics have been successful for you, ladies? What is it you gentlemen out there wish a woman would (reasonably) do in a social situation? I've read the SIRC guide to flirting, but I'm looking for some real world anecdotes to supplement that.

Did I Just Waste My Flirting Skills on a Back-Up Boyfriend?

Thought I hit it off with somebody I met through a mutual friend. There's been lots of fun chatting at parties, a bit of drunk flirting, but I fear I may have misread their intentions. After talking with both the mutual friend & this person, I'm starting to suspect that this person perhaps has feelings for the mutual friend. [more inside]

can't tell if this psychology study exists

I recently read about a study on what body language women use as perceived by men. Essentially, it said that there was no observable difference between a woman trying to flirt with a man and the same woman just being polite for the first four or five minutes of their first conversation together. I'm trying to find out if this actually happened, and if so whether it was a reliable, scientifically done study, but I lost the link right after reading it.

I'd like to hunt you again, my sweet.

I'm in a great longterm relationship - but I miss flirting. I have no desire to flirt with anyone but my guy, except... how do I recreate that feeling of excitement and butterflies that flirting brings? I've always felt that this excitement springs from the subtlety and not-knowing-ness of where it might go. When a relationship is already established, what actions would feel close to that?

How to stop married man from flirting when it's reciprocal

How to stop married man from flirting when it's reciprocal? I'm a notoriously bad crusher. Even though almost everyone would describe me as a competent, sensible, self-assured and promising young woman, I completely loose myself when someone breaks through to my inner core. It's not that it happens all the time either, but when it does it's with a vengeance. I would definitely describe it as a 'crushing' sensation. [more inside]
