The problem with learning how to flirt is that what you think is flirting.. is what someone else thinks is being a good friend. Although if there was one piece of advice I had to offer, and that everyone else offers, I would tell you not to look at the ground when you're talking to the person that your flirtatious efforts are being directed to. Others include:

  • Practice articulating yourself more clearly so that your efforts do not turn cold and futile. The worst thing that could happen is tripping all over your words and slurring your speech around in your throat.
  • Don't worry if you're being witty.
  • Don't try to be the center of attention, but don't act ashamed if it happens unintentionally.
  • It's okay to touch someone, but don't grope the person! If you want someone to take your anger out on, we have a whole line of polticians in Congress for that.
  • But most of all, disregard what anyone tells you, even me. If you spend your time around this person trying to review what you know by mumbling "step 1: eye contact", you're probably going to be putting out singles ads for a very long time.
