‘Just put yourself out there!’ You’ve probably heard this a bunch of times when it comes to finding love. You may even have found someone that makes your heart beat just a little faster, but how do you let them know? It can be very nerve-wracking to stand before them and put into words what you feel about them. That’s why you need to start with some playful flirting first to test the waters. If you’re not sure about how to flirt, try these tips for success.
Don’t stress yourself trying to find out how to flirt with ‘serious’ topics. Talk about memes, laugh over trending topics together, talk about your faves…. Just don’t put too much pressure on yourself to be perfect. Relax! It’s never that serious, even if you’re talking to the possible love of your life.
There are simple ways that your body language can help you when it comes to flirting. Keep your stance open and don’t cross your arms or legs when talking to the other person. Furthermore, keep your body turned towards them and maintain eye contact while you’re talking to them. This will show them that you’re interested in them, as well as what they are saying.
There’s no one who doesn’t like hearing good things about themselves. When thinking about how to flirt, keep in mind all the things that you like about the other person. Make sure to casually mention them during the conversation. You can also compliment their interests, which will probably brighten their day.
Think of flirting as an interview to let the other person know that you’re single and ready to mingle. Like any other interview, you need to stick with the interesting facts that will make the other person want to know more about you. How to flirt your way into the ‘job’ is by keeping it short and simple. In addition, make sure that you listen to and take cues from the other person on what they find interesting about you that you can explore later.
You may be the life of the party, but get completely tongue-tied in the presence of your crush. It’s okay to feel this way, but flirting with them is how they’ll know you’re interested. One great trick is to simply introduce yourself and ask them to do the same. You can even play a game of asking them general questions, and base your conversation on the answers. The point is to make sure that you are romantically interested in them, even if you go about it awkwardly. Who knows, maybe they feel the same way!
