Flirting is a real art. But mastering it can be very, very difficult, especially if you are a naturally shy and timid person, an introvert who finds it difficult to find a common language with new people. However, nothing is impossible, so if you put in enough effort, you will not only learn how to flirt but become a real pro at it.
Today we want to share with you some tips that will help you master the art of flirting, build a connection with people you like and feel much more confident in communicating. It should be interesting!
10 tips on how to flirt the right way
We must just clarify that most of our recommendations are suitable for different communication formats, whether live conversation, telephone conversation, or random cam chat. So take note of all ten tips.
Tip 1: Flirt only with a positive attitude
Flirting works much better if you’re in a good mood. If bad thoughts torment you, you didn’t get enough sleep, or you’re tired and exhausted from a hard day, it is unlikely that anything sensible will come out of trying to flirt. In such a situation, it is better not to try to “squeeze out” good emotions. Let the conversation be more serious and honest this time, and flirt another time.
Conversely, if you are in a great mood, the conversation should automatically go in the right direction, and you will be much more comfortable with the other person.
Tip 2: Start a conversation without a cliche
The usual “Hi. How are you?” will very quickly lead your attempts to start a conversation to a dead end. Try to think outside the box and take into account the current situation. For example, you just started a cam-to-cam chat and met a nice girl. Pay attention to her surroundings — the decor in the room, posters of bands, a pet, whatever. The environment is exactly what will help you start an interesting conversation and keep it going. Learn to spot the details, and you will never have difficulty choosing a topic for conversations with new people. And for flirting, of course.
Tip 3: Look a person in the eye (even communicating in cam chat)
Eye contact is very important. At first, it can be difficult to make eye contact with someone you like. But try to overcome the shyness and at least hold eye contact for a few seconds.
If you use webcam chat to communicate, look at the camera more often than at the screen. This means that on the screen of your chat partner, your gaze will be directed exactly into their eyes. This, of course, is not direct eye contact but a good imitation of it.
Tip 4: Use props from your life for flirting
Above, we wrote that you need to learn to notice the little things. But this rule also works in the opposite direction — you yourself can use such things as props for flirting. This might be, for example, a pet, a book or magazine on the table, a poster of your favorite band, or a t-shirt with the logo of the university where you studied. Try to make your surroundings talk about you and attract the attention of your chat partner. If you manage to interest them, then it will be much easier to flirt with them.
Tip 5: Don’t be afraid to take the first step
It is naive to expect that a person you like will suddenly start writing or calling you, hinting that they are not against flirting or at least just talking. Try to be proactive and make the first move.
It can be difficult at first to force yourself to take the first step. In this case, we advise you to communicate using cam chats, where the platform connects you with random chat partners. On the one hand, you become the initiator of the conversation. On the other hand, this does not require direct action from you. But we will talk about webcam chats a little later.
Tip 6: Learn to listen
Listening is a very useful skill if you want to make a good impression on your chat partner. Never interrupt them, listen carefully to what they say, remember, ask clarifying questions, and so on. A good listener is the best conversationalist, remember that. Even if you want to say something and complete the thought right now, take your time. Let the chat partner finish their words and only then take the floor.
Tip 7: Don’t be stingy with compliments
A good compliment is not just a sign to a person that you like them. It is also proof that you are very attentive to them. Compliments can be difficult at first. But you can use the trick of making indirect compliments. For example, say something nice about the unusual t-shirt they’re wearing, or say they have good musical taste. It’s not at all necessary to focus on appearance or character.
Tip 8: Smile, even if the chat partner can’t see you
Smiling makes your speech much more pleasing to the ears of your chat partner. You can even experiment. Turn on the voice recorder on your phone and say the same phrase twice. The first time in a normal voice without emotion. And the second with a smile on your face. And then, listen to both recordings and notice how much the intonation differs. Believe us, your chat partner, even if they do not see you, will surely hear that you are smiling. This will benefit your conversation and be great for flirting because no one should flirt with a serious face and without any emotion in their voice.
Tip 9: Let the other person understand that they are special
In general, comparing your chat partner with other people is not always the right decision. But if you do it right, you can take flirting to a whole new level. For example, you can say, “None of my friends love this band, only you,” or “Finally, someone understands why I love sci-fi.” This is how you show the person that they are special. And at the same time, you can show them that you have a lot in common. This is a good psychological trick — people like to recognize their own uniqueness. They love to be reminded of it over and over again, so use this.
Tip 10: Use cam chats to practice flirting
Skillful flirting is something that comes with experience. And webcam chat is a great platform to practice this useful skill by communicating with different people. Use Chatrandom, Chatous, OmeTV, or live chat cam website CooMeet to make interesting acquaintances, chat with a variety of people, find a common language with them, and, of course, flirt.
Communication in live cam chat does not obligate you to anything, but it helps you gain self-confidence and stops you from being a close introvert. Try it, you’ll like it!
Flirting is easier than you think
Flirting is difficult at first. But as you train yourself in this ability, you will feel how much easier it is to find a common language with people you like, attract and keep their attention.
By the way, the ability to flirt is useful not only in building personal relationships. It is an extremely important skill that will help you make useful new acquaintances, bring any chat partner to your point of view, and even move up the career ladder. So learn our recommendations and put them into practice. You may be surprised how much your life will change after that.
