We have all heard it said over and over again, touching someone on the arm gives a signal that you are interested in them. Sure touching someone says “I am interested” but how do you get to that point to touch them?
Your body language is where it all begins. If you are walking around looking sad, crossing your arms and standing away from the crowd your admirer isn’t going to think you are approachable. If you are smiling, laughing, engaging with others around you and simply enjoying yourself people are going want to approach you.
Don’t Be A Peacock
Taking your best attribute and flaunting it does not mean creating negative attention around you.
Dress for the situation without becoming the one person everyone remembers for being THE SITUATION. There is nothing wrong with looking good, but overdoing it can send out the wrong message to the very person you want to flirt with.
-Smile. It’s the easiest thing in the world to do.
-Glance. Staring at someone is creepy no matter who you are. You don’t want to give someone a complex. Instead of staring at them, turn and glance every few minutes so they know you are very much aware and interested. If they are in your range of sight, make eye contact every few minutes.
-Close the Gap. If you are in a bar, club, store or any place you can move freely please do so. You have to be sure to make eye contact while you do this but again, don’t stare. If making eye contact is nerve racking for you find something near the person you can pretend to look at while you move in closer.
-Say Something. Now I know this might be hard but at some point one of you has to say something to the other. One of my favorite things to do is comment on something in a humorous manner about your current surrounding. There is already enough stress to make the first move, making a joke eases that tension making you both comfortable to start the verbal flirting.
How you look, act and feel all speaks loudly to admirers. You want to be sure that the first words someone thinks when they see you are all positive.
