Flirting is tough. You might think you’re laying it on thick only to find out your crush had no idea you were into them. Or you might just be that guy who everyone wants to be around and not realise a load of girls are getting those vibes from you when you’re just trying to have fun.
Like carrying all of the shopping bags into your house in one go – it’s all about balance.
So here’s what’s up:
HOW TO FLIRT WITH A GIRL: THE BASICS
Knowing how to lowkey flirt takes more practice than doing a Tik Tok duet. But you’ll be one of the chosen few who know how to flirt without looking and feeling cringy. Check out these flirty things to say to a girl:
- You need to be attentive. The more attention you give a girl, the easier it is to remember all of the little (and big) things about her. If you can always throw in a reference to her favourite band or restaurant then you’ve got the chance to be a bit cheeky. Just make sure you’re attentive in person though. If you’re attentive to her Instagram page and your bucket-list destinations are the same as all the holidays she’s been on since 2017 then things might get awkward.
- Give compliments you mean. Any compliment you give is going to sound more natural coming out your mouth if you mean it. If you tell someone ‘nice shoes’ and they’ve got faux fur Crocs on – they might be able to tell by the look on your face that it’s not totally genuine. Part of how to flirt is coming across as cool to be around – so be genuine! Oh, and sorry Crocs.
- Be confident. Confidence is attractive to almost everyone. Yeah, the 🥺👉👈 stuff is funny but we’re don’t think it’s great for flirting. Confidence is about being comfortable with rejection and not caring too much about what anyone else thinks about you. And if you’re ever pressed just ask yourself what the most confident person in the world would do – then do that.
That’s kinda it. Simple, we know. And even if you flirt and your crush isn’t feeling it – they’ll at least appreciate the compliment. But if it works? Well, you’ve got it – we believe in you.
