Controlling the Flirting Game

KANSAS CITY, MO – Stop by any popular spot for singles, and you've no doubt seen the behavior in some prowling bachelors: single guys coming on strong to women with unbelievable pick-up lines, teasing and very direct eye contact. And sometimes, it works!

But aggressive flirting may also signal the potential of a sexually violent relationship, according to University of Kansas communications professor Jeffrey Hall.

This aggressive flirting style is the subject of Hall's latest study on flirting. You might recall that Hall was on KC Currents some months ago talking about his study. His new findings shed light on what's behind this aggressive type of flirting, and the women who actually like this style.
