Flirting could be a problem in some countries. Read this article, taken from Bahrain Tribune 24th February 2008. You probbaly think it's wierd, but it happens. Some think it's normal, others dont care.

Saudi Arbia's powerful religious police ordered the arrest of 57 youths this week for flirting with girls in malls in the holy city of Makkah, the Saudi Gazette reported yerterday.

Thr young men were detained on Thursday evening by reggular plice oficers following a request from the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice. They were accused of wearing "indecent clothing and playing loud music and dancing" to attract the attention of the opposite sex, it added.

Members of the commission, known as the Muttawa, patrol public areas to ensure that the Kingdom's relus and laws are enforced, and this includes strict segregation of the sexes.

So, what is your opinion?
