How To Be A Better Flirt
If you ask us, there are two types of people in this world: those who can (and will) flirt with everyone they meet and those who have considered flirting but are actually about as awkward as this guy, when it comes to talking to the opposite sex.
But fear not! With the right advice, you too can step out of the friend’s zone and into new romantic pastures…
Throw out some compliments
Compliments are key if you want someone to know you’re interested in them. However, the rule is to never ever over-compliment! Mentioning that you like something they’re wearing is good, and you can probably leave it at that. Telling them you like their shoes, their hair, their jumper, their jewellery, their tattoos, THEIR FACE will almost certainly scare them off.
Flirting is all about confidence. Ignore any fears of rejection and just put yourself out there! You want them to know you like them, right!? But again, don’t over do it! Too much confidence is never attractive.
Make eye contact
When meeting someone face to face, eye contact is the perfect flirting tactic. The minute you lock eyes with someone, you’re connected. It lets them know they have your full attention and that you’re only interested in them.
Make more effort to smile. Not only does this show what a happy and fun-to-be-around person you are, but a glance with a smile really does go a long way.
Don’t do all the talking
Most people’s favorite subject is themselves, so be conscious of letting them have a go. Even if you’d rather carry on telling them about what a wild and exciting life you lead, being able to listen while they speak too will make you much more attractive to them.
Make physical contact
If you really want to up your flirt game, a little physical contact will take things to the next level. It’s a good way to test the waters too – if you touch their hand and they flinch, you’d better take your flirting elsewhere!
Think about your body language
Body language speaks for itself. If your body is turned away from them and your arms are folded, any flirting signals you’re giving are going to be lost. Opt for a position that is comfortable, but also makes you look interested in them. Perhaps move in a little closer to them. Tip: if your body is pressed against theirs, you’re too close.
Flirting is fun, and it’s harmless! It may lead to nothing or you may be planting the seeds for a long and happy relationship. Either way, everyone should enjoy a little flirting from time to time!
Until next time,
