Lonely, desperate, depressed, scared, angry...

"I never get to talk to nobody. I get awful lonely."

"What's the matter with me? Ain't I got a right to talk to nobody?"

"Seems like they ain't none of them cares how I gotta live".

Curly's wife is flirtatious throughout the book. Basically whenever she shows up she is flirtatious because this is all she has. Curly's wife is powerless in a masculine world, Steinbeck doesn't even give her a name; she is simply Curley's property.
