Flirting is a skill that takes a lot of guts and practice to perfect. Not all are born with the flair of Casanova when it comes to attracting and seducing the opposite sex. Thankfully, these are modern times and flirting is a lot easier now than it was back then. To get you started on the flirting game, here are some tips to remember:
- Be confident
Being an expert flirt takes a whole lot of attitude. Be confident of what you’re doing and do not hesitate, but don’t overdo the confidence bit either. Being timid will not get you anywhere.
- Learn how to start a conversation
After working up the courage to flirt with someone, the next thing that you should learn is how to start a conversation effectively. No pickup lines please; women especially can tell the difference between a genuine conversation starter from a cheesy pickup line.
- Learn to listen
After getting the other person’s attention, it’s important to be able to listen to whatever he or she is saying. Nothing turns people off than talking about yourself non-stop and not listening to what the other person is trying to tell you. Make eye contact while talking; this will make the other person feel that you are genuinely interested in what he or she is talking about.
- Compliment without sounding fake
It’s easy to say the obligatory “You look really nice tonight” but it’s hard to mention it without sounding fake. The trick is to steer away from the generic compliments and focus on the really good qualities of the person you’re with. This way, you will sound really genuine when you give a compliment.
