I Pity the Flirt

Alex Santoso 0

That creepy guy that flirted with you at work? You can now officially pity their sad, sad lives:

Men who flirt at work tend to be less satisfied with their job. This is the finding of post-graduate business psychologists Chadi Moussa and Adrian Banks, from the University of Surrey [...]

Chadi explained: "Previous research has shown that people flirt for various reasons, which include increasing their self-esteem, fun and romance. If men are feeling unsatisfied in their roles, then they may resort to flirting to keep them entertained and this would partially explain the negative relationship. While flirting can have benefits, excessive flirting at work may be a sign that you're unsatisfied with your job or simple bored. These findings contradict popular notions that flirting at work can make employees mores satisfied or perform better."
