About the name AFlirtYourself
The name AFlirtYourself comes from the phrase ‘Assert Yourself ‘. But instead of Assert I added an element of flirting and called it AFlirtYourself. I know it is kind of long and kind of cryptic, but I came up with it in a hurry when I wanted to try out this new site called Twitter. The first two or three names I thought up were taken. When AFlirtYourself got accepted, I went with it.
At that time I didn’t have a clear idea of what I wanted AFlirtYourself to be, except I hoped I could do something to encourage fostering relationships in the real world. Most people I tweeted with had one or two hundred followers. I thought if I worked hard and delivered quality tweets, I could maybe get as many as five hundred followers. Given enough time and work, who knows. Maybe even a thousand followers could be possible.
At last count, @AFlirtYourself had over 34,000 followers. I never cease to be amazed and honored at that. And, of course, the responsibility not to waste their time weighs heavy on me.
It has been a lot of work (you wouldn’t believe just how much work it has been), but it has also been fun and gratifying.
AFlirtYourself. It may be a strange, cryptic name, but I’m keeping it.
