Why Do We Flirt?
Are some of us born natural flirts or is it an acquired skill? Well flirting is basically a primal instinct that signals romantic interest and attraction. This social behavior is usually learned, although some people's personalities and characteristics give them an edge with their verbal ad nonverbal cues.
At the base, flirting is an innate process that developed as a result of natural selection so it's pretty handy to have. Psychologists even consider flirting to be the human equivalent of courtship rituals practiced by non-humans.
How Do We Flirt?
While some forms of flirting are universal, others depend on the social norms of our environments. Some signs can more easily pick up on these cues than others. However, the reason this particular sign gets in trouble is because of their natural smile, infectious laugh, soul-piercing eye contact, comfort with physical proximity, and ability to mirror back the person they're with.
These are actually the behaviors that are found by science to be the most related to attraction. They create a positive associations with the person showing them, even on a platonic level.
Different Styles Of Flirting
There isn't one right way to flirt. In fact, there are different categories of behavior that come off as "flirting." More traditional styles of flirting play into societal expectations and gender roles such as a man making the first move. Then there are physical flirting styles that are typical of this extroverted zodiac sign. A hug or lingering touch can easily be interpreted as flirting.
There are also more playful forms of flirting such as teasing. Then there are polite and sincere flirting styles that are based on emotional conversations and friendly behavior. This last category is the most dangerous for this naturally friendly sign.
How Flirting Makes Us Feel
So how come flirting makes us feel good? Well on a scientific level, it literally increases our dopamine level, which is the happy hormone. But that's not all, norepinephrine is also released, causing your heart to race. Serotonin, which is the key hormone that regulates mood, well-being, and happiness, also floods your brain.
Basically flirting makes us feel desirable and boosts our self-esteem. It makes us also feel powerful because it gives us the feeling that we can convince someone to do something for us. This means that even when we're not interested, flirting can be enjoyable and some people engage in it just to be playful and to have fun.
This is what often gets this sign in trouble.
Geminis Are A Close Second
There are two zodiac signs, in particular, that stand out for their natural charisma and flirty nature. Since Geminis are known for being social butterflies and are often the life of the party, their behavior often is interpreted as flirting.
Because they naturally love to talk and are friendly to everyone, what they think is harmless fun is seen as mixed signals.
However sometimes they love to flirt on purpose: "Geminis love playing games because they're so clever, and if you've ever been heartbroken by a smooth-talking Gemini you'll know that skill can spill into their love lives." explains an astrologer.
The Most Flirtatious Sign Is.....
And the award for the most flirtatious zodiac sign goes to...Libra. Libras are known for being teases and are the most flirtatious zodiac sign. They're quite blunt and direct so if they like you, they're not afraid to show it and come on strong.
