You have the biggest crush on this guy but you don’t have the faintest idea about any flirting rules that would actually enable you to flirt with him. You can’t stop thinking about his adorable dimples and those deep blue magical eyes.Well maybe what you need are a few flirting rules. If you’re not afraid to get bold, try some of the below tips to really suss out whether or not you’ve got a dude who can keep up with you.
1. Make eye contact, then look away
Making eye contact and holding it just a few seconds longer than a casual glance causes him to take notice of you and start to wonder what you may have meant. This lets him know that you’re interested and it’s just so much fun to make eye contact in a room full of people. It’s the cool ‘silent flirt’ that can make him want to know more. No need to wink or lick your lips (ew!). A simple glance will do.
Just don’t get caught looking at him too often no matter how pretty he is.
2. Smile and blush
It’s easy, effective and any girl can do it! Guys love a girl who’s happy and full of positivity. And guys especially love a girl who smiles and laughs when she’s having a conversation with them. It’s guaranteed to make you look a lot prettier, and you don’t have to prepare for it first. Another advantage to a smile is that it’s non-committal. You could be flirting with him, or you could be remembering something funny that someone said to you earlier in the day. So you don’t have to be embarrassed if he doesn’t flirt back.
Be warm and approachable, and have a nice time when you’re talking to a guy. Smile a lot and blush when he compliments you, and we assure you his heart will skip a beat!
3. Compliment him and thank him
Guys love compliments, and compliments are one of the stepping stones of a happy flirty conversation. If you like something about a guy, make sure you compliment him for that. He’d love it as it means you have noticed something nice about him. As a result, he’d swallow his pride just to have a flirty conversation with you. If he’s being courteous and chivalrous, thank him for showing you that. However, don’t just thank him. Make sure that you’ll show your warm smile. Men love to show their chivalrous side to women they like. When you acknowledge that, he’d try harder to please you more.
4. Stare into his eyes
One of the secrets of knowing how to flirt with a guy is to indulge in everything that someone in love does. You don’t really need to be in love with him to win his heart, you just need to be happy and excited to be with him.
The next time you’re having a conversation with a guy you like, look into his eyes deeply and smile as he’s talking to you. It may confuse him or make him feel awkward. But a deep eye contact and a happy smile will definitely leave him weak in his knees.
5. Touch Him
I know you just want to jump at him and devour him, but resist the urge. The first few times you talk to him. Make sure you stand close enough to create a sense of intimacy, yet not so close that he can smell your breath.It’s actually one of the best ways to make someone want to flirt with you. Men are always weak in their knees when a woman they’re flirting with touches them. It’s an involuntary thing. Each time a girl touches the guy’s arm or shoulder, the guy will definitely open up more. He will feel more comfortable to talk to her and even flirt with her. But you must also learn the art of flirting by touching. This doesn’t mean manhandling the other person. It’s just an art of making him move closer to you with a simple, lingering touch.
6. Play with your hair
For most girls, playing with the hair comes naturally when they are into a guy. It is as natural as laughing at his jokes or making a sour face when eating a lemon slice. Generally, men love it when the girl plays with her hair, they think it is cute.
The next time you’re in the middle of a conversation, you can run your hands through your hair to show off your confidence or tuck your hair behind your ears with your fingers to show off your sexy cuteness. But whatever you do, it’ll only make a guy’s jaw drop in awe.
7. Be expressive
Catch his eye by being the type of woman who isn’t afraid to get up and dance or stay seated and express her opinions. Showing a man that you are bold in your feelings about life can capture his attention and make him want to get to know you. Men don’t like women who are boring. Express yourself and he’ll want to engage with you. And if you’re wondering if expressions can really make a difference, do you really think women like Angeline Jolie, Deepika Padukone or Priyanka Chopra were born with those awe inspiring flirty expressions? It may take a few weeks or months, but learning to use your expressions to your advantage can change your life forever.
8. Be girly
You don’t have to act like a school girl to win a guy’s heart, but if you want a guy to start flirting with you, you need to make him feel like he can protect you. Men have always been the hunters and the protectors through evolution. So if you want him to be drawn to you, you need to let him take the lead at least for a few minutes.
Men like to take the lead, be it asking a girl out or flirting with her. So just play it easy and wait for him to start flirting with you. After all, you don’t want to start flirting before he does and risk a chance of getting blown off, do you?
9. Make him feel special
If you’ve understood how to flirt with a guy, you’d know how important it is to make a guy you’re flirting with feel special. Now, you don’t need to do anything new here, but you need to remember that when you make a guy feel special. He’d get attracted to you and would want to be with you.
Make him feel special with your smile and your expressions, and your compliments and your flirty touches. Any guy you like would want to flirt with you and would find you desirable in no time.
10. Ask him questions
Asking questions shows you’re interested in knowing him better. Commenting on what he tells you is even better, and shows you’re really listening to what he’s saying. Keep the questions lighthearted and general. Find out about who he is and what he likes. Do not ask questions about sex — it may give the wrong impression and the conversation could go downhill fast.
11. Mimic his movements
When you mirror the movements of someone you’re interested in it sends the signal that you’re on the same wavelength. For starters, try subtle moves like sitting in the same position that he’s in. This is the ultimate flattery. And so much of the processing happens on a subconscious level, making us like people who mirror us more.
12. Send him your pictures
If you have been texting/calling with the guy for some time already and if he compliments how good you look. Send him a little picture of you wearing a new dress. You can tell him that you just bought a new dress and wanted to know what he thinks about it. He will most surely love that picture and his imagination goes wild.
