Sexual harassment and flirting are two types of actions that can occur between two people. Despite being both actions, there are clear differences between the two. One of those differences is in regards to intent. Sexual harassment is meant to make a person feel uncomfortable and make a person feel you have control over them. Flirting is done casually and sometimes can not be the intent of the person that is doing the flirting. In plain terms, sexual harassment is bad, but flirting can be good. This leads to another difference. Sexual harassment can have repercussions, such as the loss of a job or criminal charges being filed against the person doing the harassment.

A lot of people are curious about the different types of wine. Most of them are not aware of which ones they are supposed to drink. Two of the wines that people usually like to consume are Valpolicella and Amarone wine.

Amarone wine is known to be one of the favorites of people because of the blend that seems to be of different ripe fruits which makes it more appealing as compared to the other types of wine. Take note that Valpolicella wine is known to be a very mild wine. The alcohol effect is a bit lower than usual. Take note that these types of wine that are available are the favorites of people in Italy.

It may seem complicated sometimes that you have to distinguish between sexual harassment and flirting. Some people might say that they are only flirting with you, but you may feel violated. A lot of victims are afraid to speak out because they fear that they will be judged. Usually, when you are flirting, you would feel good about it because you are reciprocating what the other person is showing you. When you are sexually harassed, you may begin to feel bad without knowing exactly why.

Some sexual harassers would even make it a point to touch you without your consent. You will find yourself feeling as if you have gotten jolted by electricity because you feel very uncomfortable.
