There are so many people who think that teasing is flirting! Is this true? How does it work? These questions are very important, that’s why I’m going to answer them in the following paragraphs.
Most of the time, teasing is a synonym of flirting, however, there is a difference, and it’s not very obvious to most people.
Sometimes , teasing can be friendly communication, it can mean having fun and enjoying laughter together, it can even have the appearance of mocking and joking in a positive way, but you always sense that the other person is not interested sexually, which has a huge difference, but sometimes, when teasing is accompanied with flirting, in the case of boyfriend and girlfriend communication, things can be very different, you sense that there is some sensuality and sexuality involved, which differentiate teasing and flirting tremendously.
For example, when I’m with my wife, I always tease and flirt with her, I do this by touching her, joking with her, and even calling her names, it’s always accompanied with laughter and fun, and it’s very daring and will lead most of the time to sex or being passionate with each other.
However, when I’m with my daughter, I’m always teasing her, I laugh with her, play with her, and have fun together, but there are no sexual intentions involved, we always end up laughing and having fun together!
You see now that differentiating between the two can be a bit difficult, it’s the way the other person feels, if someone is teasing and flirting with you, and you feel that they are interested in you sexually, then, it’s flirting, however, if you are not, and you feel that it’s just friendly, then it is teasing and having fun together.
Yes, differentiating between teasing and flirting can be very difficult, but is teasing flirting?
If you feel that the communication is oriented towards sexuality and sensuality, then yes, teasing is flirting, but if you feel that you are just having fun and there are no ulterior motives, then it’s probably not flirting.
