    Since I was always very shy, I have never, ever been one of those girls who flirted with guys. Even when I was married to my first husband, I didn't really flirt with him. Everything was pretty serious back then.
    However, with Bobby, our relationship is just such an easygoing part of life, and I have become a decided flirt in my senior years .
    And...... I really enjoy it ! !
    I think that keeping the romantic part of a relationship going is an important part of the marriage. I don't mean just having sex (although that part is awesome, too); but even the little things like holding hands when we are walking into a store, and hugs and kisses during the day.
    At night, I always tell Bobby that he is the most awesome husband in the whole world, and he will respond that I am the best wife. It is little things like this that put security in our world and help us to know how much we are loved.
    And it never fails to put a smile on Bobby's face when I am giving him a hug and then blow in his ear a little bit and go "woo-woo".
    What special ways do you flirt with your spouse to keep your marriage happy and exciting ?

    I have the upper hand in flirting in our marriage and Johnny loves it. See he doesn't flirt with me but he loves it when I flirt with him. I sing to him too. He just spoils me which I love.

    I definitely remember flirting with ladies when I was single, but today........heck, I don't even know what "flirting" in a marriage is at this age. And, from what I can tell of 15 yrs. of marriage, she really never was a "flirt" when she was single. She just doesn't have that type of personality.

    I kiss her "goodbye" every Mon thru Fri AM when she goes to work. We give each other a hug, sometimes.

    Never was much of a romantic. Once worked in a place with more women than men employees. Got "flashed' regularly. Dated a few .

    Affectionate flirting with your spouse definitely keeps the home fires burning.

    I cannot say flirting because I was born and raised as a conservative girl. But cultivating the closeness with my husband can be considered flirting. Sometimes while watching tv, I would sit very close to him and when we are walking in the mall or anywhere, I would always be holding on to his arm and often he would be holding my hand.

    The problem with my husband is his lack of romantic inclination. He doesn't even say "I love you" or the so called sweet nothings. Whenever that issue would be raised, he would always say that love is expressed in deeds and not in words. And I believed him because I feel that I am always his priority. That's why I always make it a point to give more than what he desires. That's my kind of flirting maybe.

    @Corie Henson
    Sounds good to me Corie - your husband is affectionate and I love that, whether in words or cuddles - or both :)
