Did you know that there are 52 ways of doing it, of which the most widely used is what they call the 'hair flip'. I will take suggestions as to what the other 51 are, but remember, this is a family show, folks!
Whatever the other 51 are, feel free to indulge because flirting is actually good for you. It increases your blood cell count and therefore boosts your immunity and makes you more healthy. Could there be any better reason?
Not enough time in the day? No worries, folks, you can do it in the car on the way to work. 62% of people bat eyelids and flip their hair at someone in a different vehicle on their journey. Personally I have a problem with this. On my journeys to work, it used to be more about planning a painful death for the idiot in front who had just cut me up. Was I unlucky perhaps?
However, if the journey to work doesn't provide adequate opportunities, get online and get flirting via email or instant messenger or grab your phone and start texting. (See, there's always a way.) But if you're female, beware, as it appears that men often mistake friendly overtures for flirting. (You know the score - men are from Mars etc...)
And finally, when you are doing all this flirting, take comfort from the fact that you are not alone.
Birds, animals and reptiles do it too. OK so can someone tell me how a snake bats its eyelids and flicks its hair?
