For lonely guys, yeah talking is equivalent to flirting. I have had friends on multiple occasions (back in college) who were normally very shy feel emboldened enough to ask woman out just because she actually talked to him. They figured she had already made the first move, that she was practically begging them to ask the woman out (in their minds).
Yeah I hung out with the engineers and science geeks... lots of lonely guys there trust me.
