While flirting is fun, it can still be tricky if you do not know what to do. So, if you want your date to be successful, this article is for you.

Today, we will be listing what you should and should not do to when it comes to flirting and dating, in general.

Use Your Whole Body

Talking the talk without walking the walk is utterly ineffective. Try telling a woman she’s beautiful or a guy he’s hunky and then shift your eyes away, and your date will surely not believe you.

Flirty body language begins with eyes and works its way all the way down to the tips of your footsies. Lean forward, make eye contact, smile, bend your knees a bit and make sure your hands and arms are not tensed. Remember to relax a bit. Flirting should be fun; you are not waiting for a bomb to explode here.

Make eye contact

Looking into someone’s eyes is very compelling. And it makes a person feel like they’ve got you’re undivided attention, which they should. If you do this, you will be able to let the other person feel that you seriously want to be closer.

Smile, don’t smirk

There’s a reason why the synonyms for smirk include sneer, leer and grimace. It’s an unattractive and unpleasant expression. Avoid it. Smile openly and sincerely – it’s irresistible.

Pay attention

Pay attention to your date because it is the right thing to do. You do not have to feign interest if you really do not like the conversation, but be respectful enough to at least listen to what your date has to say.

Lighten up, don’t bulldoze

Telling your date they’re incredibly hot isn’t flirting. It’s steering your dating experience directly into a mountain. Just take it slowly and let things fall into place naturally.

Don’t try hard to be sexy

When it comes to flirting, it is not recommended to try to be too sexy. It should all come naturally. The secret to successful flirting is by just being yourself. This will surely help avoid awkward situations.

Never touch inappropriately

While subtle touches are usually okay, it is never acceptable to touch another person in inappropriate areas. Unless, of course, if there is consent.

Don’t think you can’t do it

Anyone can flirt, and yes, that includes you. Flirting is a sign of confidence and even if you’re feeling a teensy bit shaky, give it a try. Always remember that practice makes perfect and flirty. You don’t have to be smooth, just sincere.

Now that you know the things you should and should not do when it comes to flirting, it is now time to use the tips listed above in real-life dating situation. You can do it!
