The How-To Lounge: Flirting

Some of us are natural born flirts, but the rest of us have to work at this particular skill set. Luckily, when it comes to flirting, a little can go a long way. If you're one of those girls still searching for your mojo, check out my rules of thumb and


  • Eye contact is undeniably important in the art of flirting, and it conveys far more information than your witty banter will. Plus, if you look at him, then you’ll know whether he’s looking at you.
  • Don’t try to be someone you’re not. Like I told Low Confidence Lila, there’s nothing wrong with being shy, but if you are, learn how to use it to your advantage. All it takes is a couple of demure smiles and you’ve turned shy into coy with almost no effort.
  • The power of touch should not be dismissed. By laying your hand on a guy’s wrist or reaching out and touching his shoulder, you’re letting him know that you feel comfortable around him.
  • We all know that in the world of dating, looks do matter, but what most people fail to remember is that so does personality. You can’t just make eyes at him, you have to back up your flirty bravado with some real talk. Trust me, if you actually listen to what he says, it won’t be difficult to make conversation.
  • Don’t be afraid to leave him wanting more. Once you’ve connected with him, you don’t have to stay stuck on him all night. In fact, go ahead and cruise the field. Once you’ve grabbed him, he’ll be hooked and your distance will keep things mysterious.
  • As you get more acclimated in this particular art, you’ll find that certain things work for you and other’s don’t, so go with your gut!

I must confess I'm a natural flirt. However, now that I'm married, the only man I flirt with is hubbie. For me, it's really about being comfortable and content around that person. Because of that, I would naturally be pleasant and charming. Also, WOMEN can be charmed, too -- not romantically, but they can be won over just like any man. JMHO.

You just have to be brave enough to go out and try things. There is nothing better than experience. You just have to accept that yes, you will make a fool of yourself a few times, maybe more, but that it doesn't matter because every time you try, you see what works and what doesn't and you get better.

Just ask him out. Some guys just aren't used to women hitting on them and they may never pick up on the hints.
