What is flirting?

This may be a dumb question, but I'm not quite clear on what flirting is. I know it's like when people talk...but...yeah that's all I know.

How can I flirt? Is there any specific type of flirting for shy girls?

Is there a such thing as "bad" flirting? If so what does that entail.

    Flirting can be anything: Verbal, physical, etc. For shy girls you can simply smile, wink, touch the guy in subtle ways (i.e. picking a piece of hair off of him, flicking a bug off, etc. any way to touch him).

    How to flirt:

    Eye contact, batting eyelashes, winking, etc.

    "Protean" signals, such as touching one's hair

    Giggling, or laughing encouragingly at any slight hint of intimacy in the other's behavior

    Casual touches; such as a woman gently touching a man's arm during conversation
