Besides the traditional ways of flirting, there are various, subtle ways you can get his attention and let him know that you are really interested in him.
We’ve all been in the awkward situation where we wanted to start a conversation but had no idea how to be flirtatious without “trying too hard”.
Although flirting might seem a bit hard when you try it out for first few times (especially if your crush’s presence makes you nervous right away), but with the right moves and attitude, you will instantly win his attention.
Read on to find out how to flirt like a pro!
1) Have fun with it
Let’s start at the very beginning: learning how to enjoy flirting is probably the most important part of it.
If you know what you want and what are you doing (or at least you look like you are), your little flirting moves will look very natural, and this is exactly the key to a lighthearted, flirty conversation.
Instead of second-guessing every little move you make, have fun with it and don’t overthink or take things too seriously, it’s just flirting after all.
2) Make it feel effortless
Some people think flirting can easily come across as a clingy, desperate try, but if you make it feel effortless, you will get your crush’s attention… for all the right reasons instead of being too obvious.
Be chatty, kind and fun instead of trying too hard. Who says you have to stick with the traditional „ways” of flirting, such as winking and accidentally touching his arms?
Keep eye contact with him and don’t forget to smile a lot. These subtle hints will be more effective and will come across as natural.
3) Show him what he doesn’t have (yet)
Guys will always crave what they don’t have yet, so make sure to show off your truly unique side – making him want to be with you might sound like a complex thing, but you can easily get his attention in the first few minutes.
Having a positive attitude and feeling confident will not only make you feel better about yourself but will also make him want to find out more about you.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to be the life of the party, simply try to be yourself and enjoy the moment.
4) Don’t be afraid to get closer to him
The traditional “accidentally touching” is a perfect way to break the ice and get a bit closer to him.
Seeing how you both react to touching each other will also give you a hint on how he feels, and it’s a great trick to take things to the next level.
5) Look interested & keep the conversation going
The way you talk to him is a key aspect in flirting. Have a fun and light conversation, and keep asking him questions, basically about anything from his everyday life to his hobbies and pet peeves.
Making him feel like you are the most special people in the room is the perfect first step, and it will also show him that you like him in a subtle way.
With a great conversation and flirty body language, you will make him forget about other people in the room, and this is exactly the aim.
6) Never make things awkward
It can be difficult to focus on everything without making it look too straightforward or well thought-out, but a great way to keep it natural is to stay true to yourself and match your personality with the way you flirt.
If you are not a very open and sociable person, you don’t have to go overboard with it and act too flirtatious.
Try to flirt with more subtle hints – on the other hand, if you have no problem talking to strangers and you have a very outgoing personality, don’t be afraid to take it to the next level with more direct hints.
7) Stay mysterious
Find the balance between showing your personality and keeping your little secrets to yourself.
If he can see how interesting and unique your personality is, but you don’t give everything away during the first meeting, he will start wanting more and more.
Finding the balance might be a bit confusing (“What should I tell him? Should I keep this a secret?”), but once you actually start talking to him, you will have the instinct of when to be a bit mysterious.
8) Give him small hints
Don’t be shy to show him that you are actually interested in him – little compliments will make the conversation more flirty while ensuring him that he can make a move.
Compliment him on small details (such as his shirt or shoes), and look confident doing it.
9) Feel beautiful
Before you go up to him or start a conversation, it’s key that you feel confident and beautiful.
Start flirting with the attitude that you are exactly what he needs, and don’t even consider thinking about you are not “good enough” for him.
10) Focus on your body language
He will probably notice every small gesture you make, so make sure you stay feminine and have an open body language.
Don’t cross your arms (as it will make you look scared and insecure), but try to relax a bit and always keep your posture straight.
11) Let him talk
One of the biggest mistakes girls usually make while flirting is talking a bit too much, especially if they are nervous.
Telling interesting stories is a great way to keep the conversation going, but don’t forget to ask him about his opinions.
12) How to flirt like a pro with your looks
Besides your body language, makeup can play a huge part in flirting and capturing his attention as well, so we gathered the 4 most important makeup tips to keep your look fresh and flirty.
Rosy Cheeks – Keep your blush natural with a peachy or warm pink blush and try to stay away from very dramatic shades.
Glossy Lips – Apply a tiny amount of gloss to the center of your lips to keep the focus on them.
Long Lashes – Lashes can make a huge difference in your overall look, so ensure to always use a black, lengthening and curling mascara. If you are feeling extra flirty, go for a pair of falsies, that will open up your eyes even more.
Glowing Skin – Always use lotion or even a hint of liquid highlighter on your collar bones and shoulders.
