You, guys, are clueless 'cause you don't read chick mags!

I was just reading Glamour on my lunch break and there were these 12 ways to flirt without saying a word. Sure enough, one of them was:

Touch him somewhere un-erogenous - wrist, elbow - but also unnecessary!

C'mon Felix are you really that immature? Hands touch and then you're all awkward about it? Are you 12 years old?

Geezuz.

and what about that would prompt you to get so worked up about it that you are posting jabs anonymously behind your computer?

Did the other person even notice? When I would sit next to my friend's wife, her feet would always rest against my leg. Every time. For a year I kept thinking "why does she do that?" So, one time I flat out asked her; turns out she never even noticed that her bare feet were touching my bare leg. How could she have never noticed? She just wasn't spatially aware, I guess. It definitely didn't mean anything.

How is it a jab to ask if you're immature to get all flustered over a hand brushing against yours?

Seriously. Are you over 30?

Just say that you weren't making a come-on or anything, it was just a bump. This kind of thing happens, if you weren't trying to be flirtatious, just say so.

That is, by the way, just about the sexist thing ever IMHO. Many a relationship I had started with that "accidental" brushing and suddenly you are holding hands...

//gettin' hot in here.
It actually is. That little tingle when you're kinda-sorta surprised by a brushing touch...then you meet the person's eyes for just a second and then you look away and...

Ah, never mind. Gotta go take a shower!

Awesome!!!! DON'T bring up the accidental touch, no matter what. That will totally un-romanticize things. Just keep waking close together. Just let it develop.

That's where you get your advice?
To the OP: Next time while walking do so constantly facing each other and should your lips touch
