Dolenzmith + Flirting

~Micky is a real big flirt. It’s his specialty, and he spent many moments of his teenage years flirting with everyone.

~He has his own style that he figured out through years of practicing. He figured out that he’s not so great at the sweet talk.

~What he is good at though, is subtle gestures. He bites his lip a lot, leans in close, bats his eyelashes etc.

~Mike however, doesn’t really do a whole lot of flirting. He never really felt the need too. He was entirely too focused on the band to ever really try and get a girl.

~Though, Mike does have a technique prepared if needed. He is a winker. He does it a lot when they play, throws in a wink or two to the audience.

~ When Micky learns he has feelings for Mike, he figures he could just approach the situation as he would with any crush. So he subtly occupies Mike’s personal space and they end up nose to nose quite often. 

~To his surprise, Mike not only doesn’t mind but doesn’t seem to think it’s odd in any way. Micky blames it on the fact that he’s just a touchy feely person in general so he hasn’t really made a difference. 

~Mike does simple things/gestures as a form of flirting. He gives his jacket to a girl when she’s cold, laughs at her jokes, the old yawn and put his arm around her shoulder trick cause he’s old fashioned etc. 

~He tries not to acknowledge that he does all of that with Micky at first. It’s just in his nature to be polite enough to put his arm around Micky when he’s cold. 

~When they actually start dating, Mike is a little awkward at first. Whereas Micky is frequently putting himself under his arm, playing with Mike’s hands etc. 

~Mike warms up to it the longer their relationship goes on. He likes to run his fingers up and down Micky’s arm when they sit next to each other. 

~His favorite place to flirt is while they’re playing. He is a little ( A lot if you ask Micky) paranoid that they’ll get found out but he is anything but obvious. 

~Mike will turn back to Micky, who he knows gets a little antsy sometimes being in the back while he drums, and gives him a look or the classic wink of his. He doesn’t do it often so when he does, Micky blushes to himself. 

~Micky kisses Mike’s cheeks and hands a lot. He often steals Mike’s hats and wears them just to tease him.
