Flirting Study released by University of Kansas Researchers

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- A new study shows that some of us aren't the best when it comes to recognizing signs of flirting.

Missing those subtle winks, smiles and laughs in a flirty encounter
it's a study out of the university of Kansas.

Researchers brought out single college students.

Then they asked them a few questions afterwards.

Researchers found that people do know when a person is not flirting,
80-percent read that right. 

But they found that we are not as good identifying when a person is. 
only 36% of men and 18 % of women got the proper read on the other person.

Researchers say there is a big reason for this; flirtatious behavior is hard to identify because it's so subtle.

Researcher say it paints a picture of all those missed opportunities out there--
