Dating is hard, especially in this modern world when it seems that everyone out there is a pro at flirting up a storm. With this in mind it makes sense that you are going to want to do everything that you can to make sure that you are seen as a flirting master.
So, to help you to become an expert and make sure that you secure yourself the perfect partner, here are some of the things that you need to keep in mind.
Make plenty of eye contact
There are plenty of tools that are open to you to use when it comes to flirting and one of the most effective has to be eye contact. You need to try and hold the gaze of the other person, whilst still remaining cool and not too intense. After all, you don’t want the other person to think that you are challenging them to a staring competition. You just want them to feel a connection. Try and smile at them too, just so they know that it is nothing serious.
Your own confidence can have a huge impact on your flirting skills. So, it is always a good idea to do your best to be confident, no matter who it is that you are approaching. Remind yourself that you are worthy, that you are someone who is beautiful, sexy and worthwhile getting to know. When you have this confidence in yourself, then you are going to be able to flirt up a storm.
Never be cheesy
When you are nervous and not sure what to say, it can be all too tempting to bring out some of those cheesy one-liners in order to make an impression. But you should fight that temptation and try your best to leave those at home. There is no harm in being funny or witty, but avoid being too much of a cheeseball, no-one is going to want to flirt with them!
Don’t go too deep
It can be all too tempting to lay yourself bare (figuratively speaking) when you are flirting with someone. But it is very important that you try to keep the chat as light as possible. You only want to get to know one another on a surface level. If the flirting works and you build a bigger connection, then it’s time to go deeper and start to unravel some of the layers of each other (and hopefully the clothes too).
Touch a little
One of the key parts of flirting are light and gentle touches as much as you can. It is important that you get a little touchy with the other person as this will give them the signal that you like them and that you welcome their touches back. Being able to rest your hand on their arm or hand is a sure-fire way to make sure that you feel those amazing sparks between you two.
Flirting can be tricky to master, but it is not impossible. Take your time, think about what you want to say and we are sure that you will be flirting up a storm in no time at all!
