Over at the ever-entertaining Jaboobie (and a Two Hard Boiled Eggs), there is a post advising women on how to flirt with men. The key to the whole thing is right near the top of the post:

Women are so much more subtle about flirting clues that men need to really pay attention. Ladies, men are not used to women flirting with them.

Men are just not as observant as women. Another woman will spot your first attempts at flirting while leaving the bloke completely in the dark. Can anyone see a problem here?

Check for a wedding ring. If he is wearing it (as opposed to hiding it or not having one), you may be better off trying the flirt exercise elsewhere because long before he realises what is going on, his other half will have spotted you. When she does, she won't mention it to you but she'll start recording the details and then afterwards he is going to cop the lot (even if he still has no idea what was happening). In the car on the way home:

Her: Why were you flirting with that girl?
Him: Which girl?

Note: This is the wrong thing to say - she will assume you were flirting with other girls as well.

Her: The blonde at the bar.
Him: I didn't see a blonde at the bar.
Her: She was showing her legs.
Him: Were they as nice as yours?

Note: Really good response here but he is still in trouble.

Her: She was fluttering her eyelashes.
Him: Is that what women do when they flirt? You never do that to me....

Note: Really bad response - he may be walking home after that one....

Her: You must have seen her.
Him: Do you mean the ugly one with too much makeup?
Her: So you did see her....

Note: He really needs to change the topic because this is one of those no-win situations (like the "do I look fat in this outfit?" question).

Seriously ladies, if you seem some chick flirting with your man, he may not be aware of what is going on. Remember that unlike you he is single-tasking and right now he is trying to work out how to drink, talk and move back to his seat which is obviously overload on a male brain. Give him the benefit of the doubt and deal with the husband-stealing-flirt instead.....
