Eye Contact – Don’t be afraid to make eye contact. If you want to be a good flirt you must learn the art of making eye contact. You want to lock eyes but not to the point where it becomes weird. Make sure the other person is engaging in the eye contact before you make a move in.

Body Language – A woman’s body language can tell you a lot about her interest level. For example if she is open hands to her side facing you then more than likely she is interested in continuing the conversation. If her arms or crossed or she keeps looking around you as you talk chances are she is in avoidance and is trying to get away.

Balanced Approach- The most important key to being a good flirt is to keep a healthy balance. You don’t want to over smile, make too much eye contact or be too aggressive. Be subtle and pick up on her signals back to you if she is interested. If you can’t tell how she feeling pull back a little and talk to other people if she’s into you she will make sure to circle back your way.
