There's one professional woman I see for help and at the last meeting she said she liked my hat, that it added mystery to my appearance, and complimented my coat and asked where I got it from. There was another time we were on the phone and she mentioned how I wasn't doing so well lately but at the end of last year I had a spring in my step and said that I was looking good too. Also every time we have met she at some point during the meeting starts curling her hair around while we're talking.
Would you say she was flirting?
Maybe, but then curling your hair can easily be just a habit. Friends compliment each other all the time. I wouldn't be so sure - given she's a professional, it might be a boundary that shouldn't be overstepped? Erring on the side of caution x
