While for some people flirting comes naturally, most people wonder how to go about it. Flirting is an age-old social behavior used to communicate interest in a potential partner. Most cultures generally frown upon open and direct advances. Therefore, flirting serves to clearly but subtly communicate interest in someone.
Flirting also has its place in an already existing relationship. It helps to maintain the spark even long after the first date. If you feel totally clueless, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Many people spend hours trying to come up with the perfect words. Wondering if a text message is too long, too corny or maybe just inappropriate.
Dating is actually a very challenging process. One of the most difficult parts of it all is coming up with those sweet, loving words to communicate your feelings to your partner.
Sweet things to say to your partner in a text
