ummmmm I'll take a stab at this one because they're men? It's human nature..We all like attention from the opposite sex..We like the flattery.

It makes us feel gorgeous.It gives us an ego boost.

It's usually innocent.

Plus, when you see someone attractive, it's hard not to look.We all like anything beautiful..Now don't we?This is coming from a female..:)) Flirting is like shopping. If you're single, you might actually be 'on the market' and will follow-though with a date or something if she's interested. Being married doesn't change your biological attractions, it just changes how you act on them. Where you draw the line and choose to stop is up to you and your spouse. If (s)he is comfortable with your relationship, you can probably flirt a little, it's like window-shopping when you're really not going to buy anything.

If a husband and wife work in the same company and seem so happy in their marriage why does he seem to be attracted to other women and flirt with them?

just because he flirts does not necessarily mean he is intending or even thinking about doing anything,it is just natural to be attracted to the opposite sex. I'm sure you are attracted to a particularily hot man every so often? I mean if you saw a nice toned fireman - wouldn't you be a little attracted? But yes, it does tend to annoy when men flirt in front of you, but unless there is any other evidence of infidelity I would either leave it be, or ask him nicely to just not flirt too often - in my experience men often don't even realise they are flirting.

What is the difference between a shameless flirt and a girl who really is attracted to you?

A shameless flirt will often flirt to the same degree with other guys.

There are many cases which will be exceptions to the above. Source: Personal experience.

What exactly is flirt fighting?

Flirt fighting can be verbal or physical. Verbally two people that are attracted to each other could call each other cute names or possibly worse names (depending on the individuals.) They are like two peacocks spreading those nice colored plumes. It doesn't really make sense to many, but it happens. Physical flirt fighting is when the female or male will tickle, grab, sit on the person pinning them down or rolling around play fighting. Both are part of the ritual of physical contact with someone you are physically attracted too and, its a form of foreplay. To put it simply, when two find each other physically attracted "touch" is the most sensual feeling of all.

Is it ok for a married man to flirt even if he says he wont take it any farther than flirting and all married men still flirt?

I don't want to sound harsh, but no, it is not. Even though flirting may seem harmless, it can lead to affairs and lust. If a man really loves his wife and wants to preserve his marriage, then he won't flirt with other women. And even if all other married men flirt, why does he have to follow their bad example? If they go and jump off a cliff, is he going to jump off, too?

How to tell if someone is secretly attracted to me?

You can't 'tell'. If you're wondering if a certain person is attracted to you, you could try 'suggestive' behaviour to a degree, and if they respond in a positive way, they could well be. Although this really isn't an accurate way. I myself flirt with many other guys, yet not one of them is who I like.

How do you flirt in long distance relationship?

First, just as it is important to be physically attracted to a person in a close distance relationship, it is important, also, to be physically attracted to a person in a long distance relationship. If you both have webcams it will be easier to flirt (as it is the closest thing to a close distance relationship). If a webcam is not an option, share photos with each other and compliment each other. This should lead to talks of more mature content. Statements such as, "I can't wait to see you so I can do ________ with you" can help jog the fantasy aspect of the relationship.
