Default for the flirts on the boards...

What did the Romans ever do for you?

munditiis capimur: non sint sine lege capilli;
admotae formam dantque negantque manus.
nec genus ornatus unum est: quod quamque decebit,
eligat et speculum consulat ante suum.
longa probat facies capitis discrimina puri:
sic erat ornatis Laodamia comis.
exiguum summa nodum sibi fronte relinqui,
ut pateant aures, ora rotunda uolunt.
alterius crines umero iactentur utroque:
talis es adsumpta, Phoebe canore, lyra;
altera succinctae religetur more Dianae,
ut solet, attonitas cum petit illa feras.
- Ovid, according to a new book by some Charlotte Higgins

What attracts us is elegance - so don't neglect your hairstyle;
Looks can be made or marred by a skilful touch.
Nor will one style suit all: there are innumerable fashions,
And each girl should look in her glass
Before choosing what suits her reflection. Long features go best with
A plain central parting: that's how
Laodamia's hair was arranged. A round-faced lady
Should pile all her hair on top,
Leaving the ears exposed. One girl should wear it down on
Her shoulders, like Apollo about to play
The lyre; another should braid it in the style of the huntress
Diana, when she's after some frightened beast,
Skirt hitched up.

Lots more for the girls and also the boys:

You know, jvr, out of respect for your attempts to raise the literary quality of flirting on the board - I'd also recommend Solomon's Song of Songs. As they say, there is no story in human invention that was not already written in the bible....

The song of songs, which is Solomon's.
Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine.
Because of the savour of thy good ointments thy name is as ointment poured forth, therefore do the virgins love thee.

sera ueni positaque decens incede lucerna:
grata mora uenies, maxima lena mora est;
etsi turpis eris, formosa uidebere potis,
et latebras uitiis nox dabit ipsa tuis.

Arrive late, when the lamps are lit; make a
graceful entrance -
Delay enhances charm, delay's a great bawd.
Plain you may be, but at night you'll look fine
to the tipsy:
Soft lights and shadows will mask your faults.


BUT:

for men, beware:
hic tu fallaci nimium ne crede lucernae:
iudicio formae noxque merumque nocent.
luce deas caeloque Paris spectauit aperto,
cum dixit Veneri "uincis utramque, Venus."
nocte latent mendae uitioque ignoscitur omni,
horaque formosam quamlibet illa facit.

Don't trust the lamplight too much,
It's deceptive. When Paris examined those
goddesses, when he said, "You Beat them both, Venus," he did it in broad
Daylight. But darkness hides faults, each
blemish is forgiven:
Any woman you name will pass
As a beauty at night.
