Flirting doesn't seem to mean anything?
Or perhaps she fancied him, but her head wasn't screwed on straight because she wasn't over her ex and she's just kinda messed up. Maybe she needed some comfort and went about it the wrong way.
It doesn't excuse the behavior, but it might explain it.
“Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.’”
quite a lot of people these days use flirting as simply a confidence boost, they have no desire to go any further.

Am I meant to take it as a hint (which seems very arrogant of me, because I'm not Arnie Schwarz), or am I just getting baited into being a surrogate girlfriend again? Because advising women you like on what other guys they should be having sex with feels really shitty, take it from me...!

This one in particular stings. So, there's this group chat I'm in where I'm the only guy in the chat. And quite often, I'll be sought out by said females for relationship advice, never mind the fact that I've never really dated much less been in an actual relationship. 

As for flirting in general, I go to great lengths to avoid it, or even sound like I'm flirting. Far too dangerous nowadays. A word or tone of voice taken out of context can get one hit with a sexual harassment claim, which has various degrees of consequences. Based entirely on observational experience, I've decided it's best to fill my veins with ice and keep myself safe. If I suspect a girl is flirting with me, I simply apply the 'Casually Explained' formula. The answer is always C, so it's best to avoid reciprocating and act neutrally. ALWAYS neutrally. NEVER negatively.
