Best ways to flirt with a girl or guy: What not to do
We get it, approaching your crush can be intimidating, and sometimes the mind just blanks. Here’s how to subtly flirt and avoid the most bait flirting traps (and it’s cool if you’ve flopped in the past – this you 2.0).
1. Be original
If you’ve convinced yourself to talk to a girl or guy you’re into, don’t just take the easy way and use a dead pick-up line – they deserve more than that. There may be some exceptions, but in general – they’ll have heard all those corny pick-up lines before. Things like, “Is your name Google? Because you have everything I’ve been searching for” will just get aired. There are better ways to talk to a girl or guy without sounding like you’ve swallowed a search engine.
2. Be yourself
We get that it can be tempting to act around and play games, but if you’re looking for something real, these tactics won’t get you anywhere. The worst that can happen by just being yourself is that you get rejected. At least you find out they’re not gonna be a good match, and you didn’t make a fool out of yourself.
3. Don’t forget about body language
Learning how to subtly flirt is as much about body language as it is anything else. There are plenty of body language rules to be found on the Internet, but forget about them.
As long as you’re not making them feel uncomfortable by standing waaay too close or staring way too hard, you’re alright. Just be natural and do what feels right in the moment.
