You want to get this guy, but you can’t take the first step because you’re afraid of making a fool of yourself. Learn these flirting tips, and believe me, you’ll easily get the boy you like.

Follow these flirting tips and you’ll be a flirt expert in no time!

1. Get caught looking

This is one of the best flirting tips. If you see someone you like, you should make a point to look his way a couple of times hoping he catches you in the act. When he does, give him a secret smile, look at him for a few seconds, and look away. This lets him know that you’re interested, but don’t get caught looking at him too often no matter how pretty he is.

2. Don’t go psycho

Psycho is not attractive. You shouldn’t be a stalker. Don’t suddenly appear before him every time he’s alone. If he’s in a hurry and says he has to go, don’t linger and be sticky. After number exchanging, don’t text or call him as soon as you’re out of sight. Give him time to miss you. If he’s interested he will call, and if you make the first move and he doesn’t text or answer his phone, don’t keep trying constantly. Trust me 10 or 15 missed calls wouldn’t impress him too much!

3. Be playful!

If you dare to go talk to him, you should keep it playful. Flirting must be fun! Smile, but make sure that your smile isn’t fake. Your smile should be genuine, warm and friendly. Teasing him playfully is also a good way to get him comfortable. Make a few compliments. If it’s not the first time you’re talking to him try thinking of cute nickname for him, that will stay only between the two of you.

4. Be yourself

And the last most important flirting tip, you should always be yourself! Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not just because you think that’s who he wants you to be. He must like you for you. People have quirks that make each person unique. That’s why be proud of your quirks and use them as your strengths. Be confident in yourself! Remember not every boy you like has to like you back. If he doesn’t respond the way you want him to, leave him and move on!

5. Make physical contact

The first few times you meet him, try to stand close to him enough to create a sense of intimacy but not so close that he can smell your breath. After you start to get comfortable with each other, you can start with subtle physical contact. An accidental brush of the shoulder or fingers, a hug hello or a hug goodbye or briefly touching his arm or shoulder when he says something that makes you laugh. Just remember, he may be shy or not interested in you, so you should know when to stop.

6. Make eye contact

There’s so much things you can say with your eyes! But try to make eye contact while talking to him, it’s very important! I know it is hard, especially if you are shy, but try the next time you talk to him look into his eyes as if he means the world to you, it’ll make him feel much more connected to you. However, try not to stare. Constant stares can make him feel uncomfortable. Remember to pair eye contact up with a smile and occasionally let your eyes drift down to his lips.

7. Conversation

How can you get a guy to like you during a conversation? Here are a few conversation tips you should know. Firstly, use his name while talking to him, it’ll add personal touch to the conversation and make him feel more comfortable. Secondly, remember that boys like to talk about themselves, ask him interesting questions. When he’s talking, listen to him and respond, even if you don’t know much about the topic at hand, try to say something to keep the conversation flowing.

8. Use body language

Body language is an important part of communication. If you don’t know anything about body language, you should learn a few things. The first thing, don’t cross your arms, it makes you seem unapproachable and not too open. If you don’t know what to do with your hands, play with your hair or jewelry flirtatiously. But don’t overdo with it or you’re just going to seem nervous. Then, there’s the legendary hair flip, a flirting tip that’s as old as time itself. Recently I read that men find the neck of a woman extremely attractive. That’s why bend your head sideways as if listening attentively and expose your neck or move your hair to one side of the neck. And the last thing, slightly lean into him and speak softly to make sure he’s forced to do the same.
