Flirtation doesn't have to go somewhere; it certainly doesn't need to end up in bed. I like to think of it as a little friendlier than a handshake, a little less intimate than a kiss. It's a way of saying hi, you look great, have a wonderful day. A tasteful flirtation, played out people who understand the rules, leave everyone feeling good and can perk up the bluest mood.

You and I more than anyone else in the universe are perfect for each other.
Anyone worth knowing breaks once. Once. No shame, no foul if you survive it. You did.
