You were designed to flirt. Many, many, many years ago by nature. Why? Because without flirting, there’s no romance. And without romance, there’s no love, relationships or families.
But how do you activate your powerful, on-board flirting system? And how do you even know if it (still) works?
It’s as easy as 1-2-3, and it goes like this:
- The eyes have it: eye contact is the first and most essential starting point for flirting. Make and hold eye contact with someone you’re interested in, for even just a few seconds, and you’ll send your message loud & clear.
- Body language speaks louder than words: your body language accounts for more than 50% of your flirting power – more than words, or even speaking. When you’re out socially (or anywhere really), be conscious of your body posture – avoid slouching, frowning or generally looking tired & disinterested. You might blow your chances before you even say ‘hi’.
- Be proactive & friendly: all the flirting in the world is great, but if you don’t commit to making the first move it’ll likely all be for nothing. Once you’ve made eye contact with someone interesting, go up and say ‘hi’. Ditch the cheesy approach lines: simply introduce yourself, ask how their evenings going or even offer a sincere compliment. Flirting can open the door, but you’re going to have to walk through it yourself.
