When it comes to sex and dating, much has been written about the simplicity of men and complexity of women. So when it comes to flirting, logic may (incorrectly) tell you men love nothing more then no nonsense shoulder tap and head nod to the nearest hotel. Why flirt when you can just get down to business?
