Flirtation

As a married woman do you find it repulsive for other men to flirt with you or are you flattered by it?
After gaining this weight with two boys I'm so flattered when a man actually flirts with me which isn't often. I tell them no thanks and that I'm married but I can't help but smile like " I still got it" lol

It's cute.  I'm not repulsed or flattered.  My response is close to wanting to pat their head and say "awww."

It is flattering and always a mood boost. But I never participate in or encourage the flirting in any way. I always act pretty aloof to it, then when I get to the car or have moved out of the location I smile to myself because I've still got it lol.

I find it flattering and a good boost to my self-esteem.  I always make it clear that I'm married and just brush it off, but definitely smile to myself later on.

 LOL!  That's how I feel.  Then I want to say "you're just so sweet" in some motherly way :)

 To reply this way would be fine. That lets them know you appreciate the thought, and doesn't hurt their feelings, but also lets them know not to continue, that you're off limits. Anything else could be a big problem.

It boosts my confidences. I'm always like "oh honey I got that covered but thanks" but it does make me feel good.

 This. You don't want them to perceive your kindness as a green light.
