As any hunter will tell you, hunting requires restraint, subtlety and focus in order to achieve the desired goal. Not many successes would be reported if a guy came barreling into the forest with Aerosmith blaring from the stereo and all four wheels crashing through! There is nothing subtle about this form of flirting and courtship! Still, men want to make the first moves and they want to feel that they have “won” a woman’s heart.

Women Want to Be Courted

And as for you lovely ladies, let’s be honest: Nothing feels as wonderful as being personally selected and courted by someone who interests you. The “hearts and flowers” stuff may seem passé, but I have yet to meet a woman who doesn’t beam with pride when she receives such tokens of gallantry and experiences this kind of flirting. Not only is it an ancient expression of appreciation and attraction, it is a modern reminder of the efforts a suitor has taken to win your favor.

Flirting is an Old ArtFlirting

It doesn’t matter if you are gay, straight or somewhere in between, courtship is an art that is as old as recorded history and it is trying to make a comeback. How about giving it a little “boost” this year? There are a myriad of manners by which to express an interest and, while there may be some who might think of this as superficial or a “game,” it is simply a courtship dance. Every creature on this planet has some form of this kind of attention-getting ritual.

From Peacocks to Apes to Humans

Peacocks strut and make certain calls when they are trying to impress. Snakes dance and entwine one another. Great apes show their prowess and interest by beating their chests and making great noises and sometimes they even fight one another for the attention of that special one. Humans have various rituals too. Sometimes it is the old standard of candy and flowers. Sometimes it is the simple introduction that begins with a look of acceptance and a friendly smile.

Be Carefree and Courageous

When in a musical environment, let yourself dance! Even if you are dancing solo, it is very easy to get the attention of that special someone. This is usually more easily done by women than men, but it is a definite way to show you are carefree and courageous—two attributes that really go far in the early stages of romance.

We Gravitate Towards a Joyous Light

It is very real. It transcends time and space and it is completely without any kind of hesitation or alteration. It is the true source of life and love.

Do you want a fling? Or do you want to stay single? Nothing is wrong with any of these decisions as long as they truly come from your heart. If you are choosing to stay single rather than take a risk of anticipated rejection, please remember that such an idea is coming from a place of fear and will ALWAYS lead to a very sad and unfulfilled life. However, if you are truly happy being single, you have nothing at all to lose by letting yourself have a moment of unbridled joy on the dance floor or anywhere else that moves you to express yourself.
