A common scenario is where the two individuals function in close proximity, such as co-workers or in a group of friends, but do not have sex to avoid awkwardness or for other reasons. Sexual tension often occurs between individuals when the relationship is close and often flirtatious, yet the two people involved adamantly deny their feelings for each other. Yeah, it's teasing and, maybe, a bit scary but the ride is laid out in front of you and you're riiight about to go over the hill. Inside I'm super nervous because I'd like to be with the other person but outside I accentuate my playful qualities and tend to be a bit more jokey and talkative. If it's leading up to something I'll be deflective and aloof.
