I think everyone's had a few of these- flirtationships. When you flirt with someone almost exclusively (does that make sense?) but you're not in a relationship (whether you want to be in one or not is up to you~).
I'm not really one for flirting, its cute and funny and interesting at times but to be honest not really my thing. Either flirting with other people or them flirting with me, just don't like it. Of course I'm flattered but mmmmh back off I'm not interested. So obviously I don't make a habit of doing it either, though I should be a bit more accurate. I guess I'm ever so slightly (hehe completely) sexist since I only ever flirt with *girls* not *guys*. Don't know why, maybe since I'm generally more ummm masculine? Well, with most people anyways. So maybe that's why but I think more of a reason is that girls are more 'physical' without actually touching you.
I love contact, but only with people I know. That's pretty much the same for everyone? So it really annoys me when someone I don't know touches me - hands off! And girls aren't so quick to touch in a more...ummm...invasive (?) way? Or maybe I'm just more comfortable with girls?
I like hugs with basically everybody though I'd say girls give better hugs so I guess I prefer contact with girls as well. Off topic~~
Anyways, flirtationships. The reason I don't really like them is well, they're undefined. I don't like that. Like...you're not friends, but you're nothing more than friends either. It would be *horrible* to be stuck in a flirtationship if you actually liked that person but was unsure what the other person felt. Just to point out, flirtationships only exist when the two people are friends-good friends.
Therefore meaning that the above explained situation would be the FRIENDZONE. It needs capitals. The friendzone aaaaah the small gap in between *girl/boy* and *friend*. Would be horrid to get stuck there ._.
My reservations towards flirtationships comes from that, you don't really know what the other person is thinking. You could just find it as friendly fun but they might honestly be trying to impress you, or you could love that personal whole heartedly but they could think of you as no more than a friend.
Lucky me has never had either above problems~ but I'm curious. Apologies for the vagueness but QOTD: Views of flirting and past flirtationship experiences?
