Of all the useful skills an individual could have in life, flirting has certainly got to be up there in the top ten. Sure, knowing how to cook is pretty useful, and being able to build or fix things will save you a ton of money throughout your lifetime, but being adept at winning the affections of that special somebody will help you where it really counts.
Regrettably, a lot of us suck at it. We never know quite what to say, and we unavoidably end up making fools of ourselves by telling a bad joke or failing to land an appropriate compliment. Occasionally, it seems as if we should just avoid talking to folks altogether.
Gratefully, there are tons of ways you can flirt without using any verbal communiqué at all, and here are just some of them…
1. Open up
Closed body language, such as folded arms or bent shoulders, will tell other individuals that you’re not interested in interacting with them. Making yourself more open to the individual you want to hit it off (or get it on) with will make them more likely to start a discussion with you.
2. Play it cool
Of course, if you want to let somebody know you’re into them, it’s fine to flash them a sly smile every now and then. Nevertheless, if you go around grinning like an idiot, you might just scare them off. Try to be a little more stoic than usual and save all the mushy beaming for when you have a proper connection with them.
3. Engage in physical contact…
… With your friends. If you’re at the bar with your mates, giving them the odd bump on the shoulder or loving arm squeeze will help other folks see an emotional side to you. This will make them more likely to interact with you and, hopefully, open to flirt with you.
