    The first one *does* seem like a no-brainer, but man do I get in trouble with this one!!!! Mostly because I’m completely clueless and fail to recognize the signal for what it is, even though I should know better. But also because after living in Spain–where people actually *look* at other people overtly and make plenty of eye contact regardless of interest–I’ve learned to make and hold eye-contact for a much longer period than Americans are used to. I find myself accidentally sending the wrong signal and having to oh-so-gracefully (not!!!) get myself out of situations–things usually start getting awkward in an interesting conversation about the time I mention my husband in passing and then it dawns on me that someone thinks I’m going somewhere else with things (insert dope-slap here). Or conversely, I wind up misunderstanding someone else’s eye gaze. Oops!

    Is that why you always get so flirty around me? I was only looking at your, what is your gravitar again?
    Living in Asia the signals were so confusing! Actually lack of signals. I really had no idea if a girl was interested in me or not. It certainly thickened my skin when rejection and acceptance were almost a gamble!
    Funny how signals of attraction are so different culturally.

    What, you mean you weren’t flirting with me either?!?!? Damn–I misread the signal again! And here I thought we had something…. *sigh*

    And yes, cultural differences can really mess with your hed–it took me months to learn not to squirm under Spaniards’ direct gazes. And it didn’t any help that those people are just too damn beautiful for anyone’s good or peace of mind. Puts an odd-ling like me in a tail spin! But I did learn and adapt and that frank gaze became part of who I am now.

    FYI, That’s one of my cats. She’s much prettier than I am and not at all impressed by flirting. Wise creature…
