    Women who are flattered when a fellow flirts with them at work may want to think again.
    Flirtatious men are simply bored – and not very bright into the bargain, research suggests.
    A study of British workers found that men who flirt at work are short of something called ‘emotional intelligence’.
    What is more, contrary to popular perception, flashing smiles and compliments at colleagues does not help you get ahead.

    A study of British workers found that men who flirt at work are short of something called 'emotional intelligence' (posed by models)
    ‘There is strong evidence against the notion that you can flirt your way to the top,’ said occupational psychologist Adrian Banks.
    This evidence comes from two studies carried out by the University of Surrey and presented at the British Psychological Society’s annual conference.

    In the first, more than 200 men and women were asked about whether they flirt at work.
    They were also questioned about their personalities and job satisfaction. The results suggested that male flirts only did it to distract themselves from boredom.
    The researchers said: ‘Employees who are less satisfied at work may tend to become more bored and, in an attempt to make their work more enjoyable, they may opt to flirt with colleagues.’
    The second study examined whether men who flirt are somehow different to other males.
    The results showed lower emotional intelligence – a measure of how well we understand others’ emotions and control our own.
    ‘Men who were bad on that kind of regulation flirted more,’ Dr Banks said. Taken together, the results suggest that flirting does little to improve career prospects.

    I can see it being more "seeing if they still got it" than boredom. Depends on the age group. Younger ones are probably searching all options.. I mean hell if you magically found the girl of your dreams that way then there ya go. There's always intention behind it.

    I've worked before. Sometimes people are more appealing in that situation because yeah it does suck sometimes. Most of the time. You find anything you can to have fun with it. Feelings inside of the workplace are usually totally irrelevant to how I feel when I'm on my time.

    I think patrice o'neal does a joke about this, it may be someone else, but the bit was something about picking up bitches somewhere where they have a uniform, and they're really interesting and appealing when they're in their work clothes, but then you see them in normal clothes and suddenly they're completely uninteresting and all you want to do is get away from them.

    I've had it happen to me before, you think 'hey this person could be really cool, how about we chill' and then it turns out they're not cool at all, they were just the most interesting or stimulating thing in possibly the most uninteresting place of your life, which isn't hard to be.

    -male makes joke-
    "I'M OFFENDED"

    -male comments on dress-
    "OMG WERE YOU LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT? I'LL REPORT YOU!"

    -male avoids every female in building-
    "SEXUAL DISCRIMINATION!"

    -male minds own business out of fear of being reported-
    "GOD WHAT A PRICK. HE WON'T EVEN SAY HELLO!"

    I'm really glad that the place I work isn't like that.
    One girl started talking shit about me to 3 other girls there, and a fourth showed up and bitched her out for insulting me behind my back.

    I flirt with colleagues but I've no intention of sleeping with them.

    A polite courteous flirt can really make someone's day and make your own less tiresome.

    I can sort of relate to this. I feel that girls as work colleagues tend to be a lot more casual and not as on edge as they otherwise might be.
    It feels a bit like women on their free time tend to treat every guy who talks to them as a potential suitor trying to get laid, while women at their workplace tend to be more casual since they no longer assume you're only talking to them as a potential suitor trying to get laid.

    i fucking hate this stereotype it is so completely untrue but it is one of those things that people (mainly women, but even some men) just accept without even thinking about it
    it's retarded and offensive and i hate it

    I wouldn't say that picture was misogynistic as such, though elements of it do go a tad too far, imo. It is true that there are many stupid double-standards related to gender, and most of the ones in the picture do exist. It isn't saying that women are dumb and stupid and wrong, it's saying that society's perception of the differences between men and women is dumb and stupid and wrong (which it is).
