Flirting is stupid, I’ve recently decided. It’s an unreliable measure of someone’s interest in you.
Tonight I realized that I have been flirting a lot, and I don’t want to flirt anymore.
I pointed out to Austin that two people exchange winking smilies, it is a flirtatious act. A one sided winking smiley isn’t so bad, but when it is reciprocated.. that is when things get kind of sketch and babies are made.
So in conclusion, I am no longer exchanging winking smilies with boys (including Austin!!), and I am going to try harder to be more obvious about my intentions. This kind of stuff can really screw with someone.. and I would like to not be a facilitator of that kind of thing.
