INSTAGRAM FLIRTING 101
But how to talk to people on Instagram in a way which makes them thirsty and not creeped out? As long as it’s respectful and kind, Instagram flirting isn’t an issue. And it’s worth playing the long game – limber up over the course of a few cheeky likes here and there before throwing in a well-timed comment. Maybe a scroll of their grid has revealed something they’re into. Drop a little hint in a private story that you’re digging it.
Knowing how to flirt on Instagram is basically avoiding anything that you wouldn’t do IRL. If you wouldn’t walk up to a random person on the street and shove an aubergine in their face, you probably shouldn’t do it online (if you would, have a word with yourself).
It’s also worth remembering the highly curated nature of Insta… while we get a more detailed profile compared to most dating apps, it’s still be designed to appear a certain way. Have reasonable expectations for when you eventually get to meet IRL.
