    Not at all flirtatious.

    I write (and say) it often and never even considered it to be until now (and I still don't consider it to be flirtatious).

    Some people look into things far too much.

    I can't say I've ever used it myself, although I can only see myself saying it in reply to someone else (somewhat out of the blue) texting me to say hey in the first place.

    I would say it was more playful than flirty...

    How do you distinguish playful from flirty! I'd say they were one and the same. :p:
    Therefore it is flirty
    To me, playful is happy, jolly, like I would be to my friends I guess
    Flirty has something slightly more in mind

    That said, I do see what you mean...

    Yeah, I agree. In the same way if a girl was playfully hitting me, I'd feel I was being flirted with if she sent me playful texts..

    well one of the reasons i was undecided about 'hey you' is the very fact that I would never dream of putting it in a message to a friend, and would only consider using it to a member of the opposite sex.

    e.g. I would never write "hey you, are you coming to the public seminar at 2. if so can you bring the lecture notes you borrowed" or whatever as in a casual message to a friend. it just seems inappropriate, as opposed to, "hey you, had a really good time last night..." etc etc i.e. a flirtatious text
