An Explanation of Why Business Flirts Do Not Work

“How are you doing, my working girl?” Layla called Dana after another three months.

“It is going great with a special business person,” Dana sounded bittersweet and happy.

“Is it he not your lover,” Layla was curious.

“He wants me to join his business but flirts with me also without any idea of commitment,” Dana replied.

“So you did not have sex?” Layla laughed.

“We did not and we will not do it. We are business-oriented persons,” Dana said with a strange feeling of sadness like she wanted something more.

“I see, my dear, you got a business flirt,” Layla explained, “You have no luck in love. Either you’re the savior, or you are the business partner for men. You need to work more about your feminine energy outside your beauty.”

“I know and started doing it because I am tired of being a savior, advisor, business partner, motivator, inspiration, etc. for the men I want,” complained Dana.

“I understand but remember that the men you want and see as yours, may not look at you the same way as you wish,” Layla spoke sadly, “I call you again after three months, lovely.”

Dana thought many men were hers, and they were in her head and heart, but she was not their woman.


That’s a sequel to Choosing Reality – Flash Fiction.

Business flirts are popular nowadays because they are short-term and without engagements. Usually, the affairs are as soon as they happened. Many people leave their jobs often, so they have no plan to go into a long-term relationship with passionate colleagues.

When the stress level is too much, some office employees go physical, without thinking about the consequences of their behavior. It’s in human nature and it doesn’t matter how disappointing that is, it will not change easily.  The only way is self-control of emotions and physical urges.

Sometimes, business flirts are painful but they rarely grow into something more.

In my life, I had some business affairs and left my job after. It’s no good because I divide my professional and personal life. But in my confession today, I would like to share that many men these days see women only as business partners and nothing more. Unfortunately, females become delusional and start thinking the polite business partner wants something more of her.

Maybe it would be easier for the women to see themselves as a sexual bag that relieves stress by men, but it’s animalistic and inhuman. The times today change the perception of male-female relationships in a ridiculous way.

My belief is using someone only for sex is insulting, but the business flirt tendency is famous, and most women go with it to feel desired as lovers. Even if that is illusionary, they go with the flow, recovering after for a long time.

I’m old-school when it comes to love and sex, and that is one of the reasons I am still single. For me, it doesn’t work to open my legs so easily. I don’t understand how a woman, who respects herself,  does it. Maybe the problem is in me, my pride, morals, and idealism.

However, doing or not business flirt has its pros and cons. People should measure well both sides of that affair.
Is it needed or healing the low self-esteem?
Is it not a wicked game of mind’s delusions that rob the person of a chance at true love and a serious relationship?





Horse’s Silent Understanding

Horse's Silent Understanging

Horse’s Silent Understanding


The reason People prefer the animal company.

Yesterday I visited an old village that currently operates as a Tourist attraction. It’s called Brashlyan, and the time in it is stopped. There is a lot of Bulgarian History and originality from house owners nowadays.

On one abode’s wall, I saw Izida’s painting, on another – a unique flower arrangement, and on the third – a photovoltaic system. The best thing I found out in Brashlyan is the wild horses, tranquility, and restoring my mind’s peace.

November last year, I broke up with the true love of my life and visited that place for the first time. Between my crying and silent sorrow, that village healed me. There is nobody most of the time, and the place has one Coffee Vendor Machine. It’s a great place for finding the mind’s peace. I call Brashlyan my remedy and take it regularly. Loving the sea in my current living town, I started to adore the village’s silence.

Flower Arrangement

How I met the Horse?

I walked and my tears dried because of the memories that ran through my mind when I heard a noise. It was the horse. Our eyes met, and we created an immediate bond between our silence. I felt like he had read my mind, pain, and sorrow.

Doing the first step toward the horse, I was afraid he will run away, like my life’s romantic mates, but he stood bravely right there, piercing his calm irises in mine. It was a silent understanding between two hearts and energies.

I tried to pet the horse, and it was weird because he hesitated at first, but a few moments later, I could touch his fur on the forehead. It was a happy moment for me. After a while, I saw the horse’s family, and they ran away into the wood.

What did I learn and feel from the horse’s meeting?

Silent understanding is the greatest gift someone can give to a hurt person. The words and actions that say “I am with you” are far more powerful than crying and gossiping together about how bad people are. Yes, they are, and that’s an undeniable fact that helps no one.

There is a choice if the pain inside makes the individual one of the bad people or a good human who doesn’t allow himself to do unpretty actions toward others.

One thing is sure, and that is animals’ feelings are sincere because they trust their instincts. Horses are patient, loyal, understanding, and do not lie. It takes a long time to build trust with that mammal, but when earned, it’s forever. Something people lack nowadays. My longing for forever seems naive and funny, but in life people should have their principles, circling the ideal they follow throughout their lifetime.

Unfortunately, animals understand that better than humans.

I highly recommend visiting Brashlyan – it’s tranquil, has fresh air and a lot of Bulgarian historical knowledge lies there. On the other hand, it has an eco-trail that helps to organize chaotic thoughts. The place brings out the deepest feelings, healing them with tears. The frozen time there gives an idea of how life should be in peace that is long gone, destroyed by humans.

The thing I love the most in Brashlyan is the Coffee Vending Maschine. It gives spice to the travel there.  Sitting on a bench, looking at the church school, with a cup of coffee in hand, takes me back to a peaceful time – it makes me smile, and forget the worse memories I have from the present 21st-century life.

The memory I got with the horse yesterday, gave me hope I still can find silent understanding without judgment.  Not blaming myself for my past actions and wrong choices, made me realize that animals are the best thing I could have in my life.
