Have you ever been too ashamed to ask for something you wanted? Liked someone and wanted to flirt, but didn’t know how to break the ice? Can you remember a time in your life when you felt embarrassed or shameful for something that felt good? Ever had someone start flirting with you but couldn’t flirt back and all you could do was be overcome by shyness or fear?

 You’d be surprised how easily shame strangles our ability to flirt.  

For many of us, feelings of shame (or trying to avoid them) keep us from asking for and experiencing things that we want. From flirting to romance to sex, many of us feel paralyzed by shame and powerless to change it. The results over a lifetime can be catastrophic. The great news is you don’t have to let shame stop you anymore and you don’t need to be “shameless” to get what you want in your relationships. Both flirting and asking for what you want are excellent skills to transform your social world and life.
