- They may ask numerous questions but never actually purchase anything
- Keep apologising and ask for more time before making a decision
- Leave encouraging comments on your blog but never click on your business offers
- Get you to do a detailed proposals only to give the project to a competitor
The problem with flirts is that there are not really interested in developing a relationship. This adds complexity to your business which you do not want.
