Flirting isn’t as easy as it appears — for every smooth-talker at the party, there’s also the poor soul whose idea of playful banter consists of non-committal grunts and intermittent bouts of verbal diarrhea. Witty repartee doesn’t come naturally to all of us, particularly when we’re talking to someone cute. It’s enough to make one frustratedly wish that we could just be like the other animals and learn a single mating call. Is that too much to ask for??

her: Not really
me: [releases 7 doves under table] Haha yeah me either
