While flirting comes naturally to some people, it isn’t so easy for some, and for others, it can even be confusing. If you’re in the second group, don’t worry because we’ve got you. We’ve put together a few techniques to help you learn how to flirt:
- Lean In
If you want to capture one person’s attention in a group, the best way to do it is to lean toward them. By leaning in towards them, you show them that you’re interested in what they have to say. As a result, you will notice them unconsciously direct their attention towards you, and they will know that you are interested.
- Make Eye Contact, But Keep It Casual
When trying to let someone know you’re interested in them, eye contact has to come into play. First, look at them, then immediately look away. Repeat this three times. Remember that you don’t want to make the other person uncomfortable, so try not to maintain too much eye contact. Take a look at their mouth every once in a while, but make sure you’re not doing it for too long.
- Mirror Them!
Mirroring someone means that you replicate their body language. You can copy someone’s gestures, facial expressions, or even the position of their legs. Here’s the thing though- whatever you do should be very subtle. While the other person isn’t meant to see outright what you’re trying to do, their brain will register it and signal that you’re interested in them.
- A Compliment Goes A Long Way
It’s great to compliment the person you like on their fragrance or outfit. Alternatively, you can use subtle flirting through a coy compliment. Don’t make your compliment obvious. Wait for when you’re somewhere together, then ask the other person if they noticed someone that just left checking them out. This way, they notice you, noticing other people appreciate their appearance.
- Use Some Humor
If you’ve already talked to this person a few times before, now is the time to add a little something extra to your conversation in the form of humor. By introducing humor to the conversation, you can gauge whether you’ve become comfortable with each other. It’s also a great way of evaluating the other person’s sense of humor. Learning to flirt means trying to raise the conversational energy between you and the other person. You can share a funny story about something that’s happened to you or even find a way to make jokes with your date about your current environment.
- Be Suggestive
Tease them a little. How about an ‘accidental’ touch of their arm? Ensure you don’t go overboard, as that can spook the other person out. A flitting touch is enough to spark their imagination and leave them wanting to find out if you’re interested in them.
