Office romance aside, men are more likely to flirt around the office. Except just when you thought its all out of the goal of having sex with a colleague, turns out its not true. At least, according to two studies by psychologists from the University of Surrey.
Men who flirt at work don't do it for romantic reasons, but out of pure boredom. The study, presented at the British Psychological Society's annual conference collected answers from 200 men and women on different questions from "Do you Flirt At Work?" and so and so forth.
The researchers presented their findings at the annual conference of the British Psychological Society, though we'd like to stress that a sample base of 200 really isn't just enough to come to a conclusion.
Their findings include "employees who are less satisfied at work may tend to become more bored and, in an attempt to make their work more enjoyable, they may opt to flirt with colleagues."
