One thing about enforced sobriety (due to the new meds I'm taking for my insomnia) is that it makes flirting a little bit tougher. Oh sure I can flirt without if I really try and the mood is right, but I can also be quite shy at times, and shyness is the natural enemy of flirting. (Whereas one or two drinks are the natural enemy of shyness, if you see my point.)
On Saturday night I went to a lovely dinner for Stu's 40th birthday, and rather pleasantly was the object of a considerable amount flirtation. From a couple of guys. At one point one of the guys stroked my beard "to see how soft it was". Verdict = soft. At another point a different guy kissed me on top of the head (which sounds kind of ick, but in context was rather sweet).
As the night wore on, and more alcohol was imbibed, the flirting increased. Can you call it flirting when someone grabs you by the balls?
