You know the basics.
1. Be fearless.
“They’d be lucky to have me, because I’m the best!”
When I’m hanging out at bars, I always stand up straight and walk with purpose. Owning it (it being everything) attracts people! From there, all it takes is a little flirty eye contact, and voilà – a conversation is sparked. When you look like you’re having a great time and comfortable in your own skin, it’s magnetic. People can’t help but want to be closer to you.
2. Practice your moves.
give it right back to them.
3. Make ‘em laugh.
f you can joke with someone, you can flirt with them.
4. Get creative about contact.
you have to get creative
This might just be me being weird, but honestly, sometimes I like to tell people about my body-building parents, and then flex my tiny bicep for them. I’m the weakest person in my family, for realsies, so letting them feel how ridiculously small my muscle is establishes contact AND demonstrates my feminine vulnerability (JK, heteronormativity is WACK. Girls can be strong too!)
5. Get caught red-handed.
THAT’S THE WHOLE POINT OF FLIRTING.
(Disclaimer: Flirting is one thing, and inappropriate advances are another. If someone comes right out and tells you to stop what you’re doing, listen.)
And of course, remember to smile, be friendly, don’t be shy, etc. You know the basics. These are the next level tips! And I’m confident that you’re ready to put them into action. ;)
