Dear Dish-it: Help Me Flirt

Dear Dish-it,

Can you help me be more flirty?

Dear skyler,

For some girls, flirting with guys comes naturally. For others, it take a little practice. But don’t worry – our fail-proof flirting guide will have you flirting like a pro in no time!

Flirting 101Flirting 101

Be Confident

Rule No. 1: You’re amazing! Don’t believe it? Fake it ‘til you make it. Repeat this mantra in the mirror every morning until you feel like the cool and confident girl we know you are!

Eye Contact

Nothing says confidence like an eye-to-eye lock. Once you’ve spotted the object of your affection, don’t be afraid to let your look linger. Just don’t stare your sweetie down – it’ll seem kinda creepy. Give your guy a two-to-three-second glance then slowly turn away.

Smiley Face

Smiling shows you’re a cool, friendly girl that’s easy to approach and talk to. When your crush sees you flashing your pearly whites, he’s more likely to ask you for homework help later ... and maybe even ask you out!

Yuk it Up

You do it online and in texts, so why not LOL in real life? Laughing shows guys that you know how to have a good time and you’re not scared to show it! Plus, giggling says you don’t care what other people think. Another sign of super-confidence!

Body Language

Lots of times, the way you stand, sit or move speaks louder than words. Remember to maintain open body language so guys aren’t intimidated to approach you. Keeping your arms crossed says “back off” and signals that you don’t want to be bothered. Instead, keeping your hands in your pockets is a cool way to give off a chill vibe.

I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)

Is there a particular reason or situation causing you to feel this way? I can't provide much advice other than talk to them about it. Communication is important.

He is a jerk, but then what ?? He is your best friend . Maybe you should tell him to sleep for an extra hour. It may be a lack of sleep.
