Did you know that the third week in February is International Flirting Week? In honor of this week-long holiday, the Rumney Flats Blog is highlighting a few flirting tips for residents of our apartment community here in Revere, MA. Keep reading to learn how to improve your flirting game. 


Make Eye Contact

You don’t need to say a word to let someone know you are interested in them. Get your crush to catch you looking at them and then smile so they will get the message. Don’t stare too long though because that can be taken as rude or creepy. Once you’ve made eye contact, hold their gaze for a brief moment before looking away. Initiating a staring contest is not what you are going for. 


Be Goofy

It’s okay to be silly. Make a joke, play around, and don’t take yourself too seriously. Being too stiff and proper can make things start to feel awkward super fast. Lighten the mood with a little humor and test the waters to see what makes them laugh. 


Smile A Lot

If you are not a natural when it comes to smiling, you might want to practice in front of the mirror first. Smiling is a natural response when you are happy and smiling is contagious. If you smile at them, odds are they will smile back, if only briefly. 


Compliment Them

If you are unsure whether your crush is getting your hints, give them a compliment. A sincere compliment is both flattering and charming. It is a great way to get your message across and clear up any confusion. 


Confidence is Key

There is nothing more attractive than a confident individual. Show others that you are comfortable in your skin and they will naturally be more drawn to you. Even if you aren’t feeling very confident, act like you are and things will go more smoothly.
