To you, she’s absolutely perfect. She’s got a gorgeous face, perfect body, brilliant mind — in short, she’s the girl of your dreams. Will you let her go just like that? No, right? You will take your chances, try to get her interested, and if it doesn’t work out, mourn a little, and finally move on. Well, we will try that it doesn’t come to that.
Here’s presenting you 11 super tips to flirt with her just right:
It might seem super obvious but you can’t make a solid connection with someone unless you look them in the eye. When you’re nervous you tend to look down or across the room—don’t. Try your best to meet her gaze, and hold it. But don’t look like a creep. See elsewhere from time to time too!
Smile and say hi when you pass her in the halls. No need to get into a big conversation (unless you want to!). Just take a half-second to wave, then keep moving. Boom — you’ll be on your crush’s radar.
Ignore your crush… but not for long. It sounds counter-intuitive, doesn’t it? But imagine running into your crush and a group of their friends at McDonald’s. Say hi to their friends first and strike up a convo. Your crush will feel the tiniest bit left out, until you turn to include them (and make their day).
Take a cue from Selena Gomez. Pretend you’re in the music video for “Bad Liar” and channel her flirty vibes. It’s exactly what people mean when they say, “Confidence is sexy.”
Memorize a great joke (or one that’s so bad it’s good). Knowing you can pull it out anytime means you’ll never have an awkward pause in conversation. Humor is a magnet that attracts most girls. Plus, if you make someone laugh, you’re totally in.
Your body language is super important, too. Don’t just stand around with your shoulders slouched–this signals ‘boring, underconfident’. Relax, and look confident, and smile occasionally.
Check out her clothes and ask about the sports team, band, or brand on their T-shirt. They’ll notice that you noticed.
Introduce a cutie to your friend. It’s easier to approach a person for someone else — and then you’ll get to talk to their cute friends.
Make her nervous. Here’s how: The first time a new crush texts you, write back, “Who is this?” When they explain, say, “JK, how could I forget you?!? :)” They’ll be hooked.
Give her a hard time. “I love when girls make fun of you a bit and try to drive you off-sides. That’s the best — when you’re like, ‘Whoa, whoa!'” advises Gossip Girl hottie Chace Crawford.
Keep gum or Tic Tacs with you. “Want one?” is the world’s easiest icebreaker.
