When we were little, teasing someone to show interest meant things like kicking their chair, or pulling their hair, or anything that attracted their attention but didn’t let on how much we liked them.
But teasing as adults works differently. I hope. If you’re all-growed-up age, you probably can’t get that guy/girl’s attention by kicking their chair. Though the hair pulling…that’s got possibilities.
*Ahem* For me, teasing lies somewhere between flirting and seduction. It’s a taste of what’s to come, a kiss, a whisper, a brush of warm breath on the skin, that may or may not lead further. It heightens the anticipation, it stretches out the moment. That feather-light touch followed by pulling back, a wink, and a look that promises more, but not until later, can send one’s pulse racing to glorious places.
But I know it’s not for everyone. What about you? Teasing, or get straight to the point?
