The guide book of sexual dating with women for men
Summer of 1998, I exited a Target store with a guy I was seeing at the time.
Flirting is a basic instinct, part of human nature.
This is not surprising: if we did not initiate contact and express interest in members of the opposite sex, we would not progress to reproduction, and the human species would become extinct.
According to some evolutionary psychologists, flirting may even be the foundation of civilisation as we know it.
They argue that the large human brain – our superior intelligence, complex language, everything that distinguishes us from animals – is the equivalent of the peacock's tail: a courtship device evolved to attract and retain sexual partners.
Our achievements in everything from art to rocket science may be merely a side-effect of the essential ability to charm.
Like every other human activity, flirting is governed by a complex set of unwritten laws of etiquette.
