How and Why You’re an Unconscious Flirt
Of course when we say unconscious flirt, we don’t mean to say that you flirt when you are actually unconscious, that would be ridiculous. What we mean is that you are flirting without even realizing that you’re doing it. This is something that is way more common in women and it can lead to trouble retaining female friend, as your unconscious is too busy trying to seduce.
So how can you know if you are an unconscious flirt? Well if you have said any of the following phases, it is highly likely that your are…
- “I knew she liked him, but it’s not my fault he liked me and not her.”
- “It’s hard for me to be friends with other women as they get to jealous of me.”
- “I can’t help that guys are always asking for my number.”
You may want to form friendships with other women, but there is something going on in your unconscious that creates jealousy and competition, that would severely affect the formation of trusting relationship. So why do flirt unconsciously?
The ability to attract someone is one of us human’s first instincts. Think about it, from the moment your born you use non-speaking skills in order to get what you want. Once we learn language, we still have desires that we can’t articulate and one of these unconscious needs is for validation from others. You may seek this validation, from friends boyfriends for example, without even realizing you are doing it.
Only by recognizing your unconscious flirting can you stop it from attracting the wrong attentions or reputation. Don’t let it accept your friendships and ty to overcome your need for validation.
