Flirting Dos and Don’ts

Flirt Using Body Language

You see someone from across the room and think: wow, I really want to meet that person! But how can you be sure your body language gets your meaning across? In other words, how do you flirt?

Body language cues are a great way to show the person you like that you want to get to know him or her better. Check out our flirting tips below and remember: if you notice someone using the same moves on you, flirt right back. Flirting is totally harmless and, like so many other things in life, practice makes perfect!


Flirt with your eyes

Making and holding eye contact with someone you like for about five seconds or so is a great flirting technique. It’s highly effective and easy to do. If you’re the one trying to flirt first, try and lock eyes with the object of your desire at least three separate times. On average, this is what it takes to make him or her realize you are flirting.


Flirting by grooming

Grooming yourself (that is, fixing your hair, posture, etc.) in public is flattering and flirty, but the moves you make will depend on whether you are a guy or a girl. Ladies can try some hair stroking, posture enhancing, neck exposing, hip tilting, clothes straightening or lip licking – you can try all these moves with the intention of calling attention to yourself in front of someone you like. Guys can also straighten their clothes, lick their lips or fix their hair, but they can also add things like hooking their fingers into their belt, sucking in their stomachs and taking deep breaths. Both girls and guys can try using this type of body language to show off your best features while enhancing the unique things that make you, you.


Flirt with a smile

Few things work better when it comes to flirting than a sincere, genuine, radiant smile. The only problem is, smiles are often not linked to flirting, so when you do flash one at your crush make sure you combine in with another flirting method to make sure he or she understands your true intention.


Flirt by pointing

Not with your finger, but with your body. Try “pointing” at your crush by moving toward them physically. Point your feet toward him or her and face the object of your desire head on, using your shoulders to lean in his or her direction. Even crossing your legs in a certain direction is a fab flirting technique.


Flirt with touch

Look for chances you actually touch the person you want to flirt with, either “accidentally” or otherwise. Shaking hands is one idea, though it may seem a bit formal, or you can try placing your hands on his or her arms really gently and casually as you move past your crush. You could also lightly tap an arm while sharing a laugh.

I flirt a lot with boys, and a lot of boys like me, but the boy I really like doesn't like me.

Don't exactly go up to her and say, "I don't wanna be friends," because although she is mean, she still might be hurt. Just don't really make it official, but slowly drift apart from her. Try to meet new people, maybe there's someone great you just haven't met yet. And maybe she's having problems of her own, not like that's an excuse. But in the end, if she does apologize to you, she might be a friend worth keeping, but those insults were pretty serious, not something best friends would do, and you probably wouldn't forgive her. I get that. Thanks for the good advice! I don`t see her often so drifting away is the smartest idea. Although I see her at family parties and stuff cause she is a family friend. I`ll try and drift away from her. If she gets better at being kind I`ll be her friend again most likely. Thanks!

I have this friend who has been my friend for 6 years. And she is so RUDE. She says mean things about me and MY MOTHER. Seriously she says really awful things about my mom like this: "Her IQ is high? Oh she must have took the IDIOT test." And tells me "Eww you wear Disney Princess shirts? Eww you are so messed up!" She always acts better than me whether we are alone or with people. She tries to make people hate me and she tries to act mature and she alway tells me "You should respect your mom and do what she tells you" She is awful. I wanna tell her she is mean and I dont wanna be friends. But I can`t! Its hard to do that when you know someone for 7 years. HELP!

As the previous person said, look online. There are very cute clothes available in bigger sizes! Also when you go shopping take a look in popular stores as well as less popular that might look as if they're for older people. Often they follow very similar trends but have bigger sizes!
