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!

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.

This is going to sound completely cliche, but the best thing is to just be yourself. You'll make friends no problem. People can tell when you're being genuine or not, and they definitely appreciate you for who you are more than if you tried to be someone else. You got this, it'll be a fun and exciting experience. :)

I am so sorry for your loss. It must be tough going through this at the moment, losing someone is always a difficult situation. Grief can be unsettling and uncomfortable, but is a normal and necessary part of grieving and getting yourself through these types of things. I encourage you to continue to remember her, whether it be through stories or drawings or other ways you might express your good memories together. You could also do something in her memory such as plant a tree. Healing from loss takes time. There's no magic fix that'll make you feel better overnight. You just have to let yourself go through the process and eventually you will feel better. I promise. I'm also here if you feel like talking about it at any time, just send me a request.

On a typical day I wear a pair of ripped jeans and either a hoodie or jacket, and a snapback. The opposite would probably be a dress lmao.

I also love expensive clothing. Brand names are my thing. But I always shop either during sale times or at second hand stores. Sales are my best friend, honestly. It might be frustrating to wait, but it's worth it in the end. Shop only on sale racks in big stores, and scout out smaller second hand stores that often carry brand names, never worn, but for a cheaper price.

Hello! I'm in need of urgent advice. The guy I have a crush on and I were best friends around two years ago. Somebody told him that I like him, and now he avoids me like the plague... I really just want to be friends with him again even if he doesn't like me back. What should I do? I'm quite an awkward girl, and I can't make conversation for the life of me. We're going into seventh grade, and I haven't talked to him nor seen him all summer. Please help!
