Earlier this month I filmed for the show Celebs go Dating. I taught Perri Kiely (of the dance troupe Diversity) how to flirt. Joey Essex was also there and taught me a few things that I didn’t know before. At one point during the filming, I was really worried that Joey was gunning for my job as flirting expert. The guy had swagger, what can I say?
I was brought on the show because Perri had been on 4 dates already and there had been absolutely no flirting. When I met him and Joey at the Dating Agency and asked him why, it seemed much of it had to do with how he regarded flirting itself. He told me that he hadn’t been flirting with his dates for three reasons. Perhaps you can relate:
- He wasn’t attracted to them
- He didn’t want to lead them on
- He didn’t know how
I am hoping that you can help me with an experiment using twitter. I will address the most common reason why people say they don’t flirt, from the above options. In the next 24 hours, could you please tweet @flirtology
- I don’t flirt because I am not easily attracted to people #flirting
- I don’t flirt because I don’t want to lead people on #flirting
- I don’t flirt because I don’t know how #flirting
I will answer the most commonly tweeted flirting problem in my next post. Oh, and I’ll let you know when our flirting show airs on Celebs Go Dating, sometime Mid-April.
