If you’re at a nightclub, coffee shop, or party and want to get the attention of a guy, you need to make sure you’re doing it right. Flirting is an art, and if you make all the wrong moves you can forget about getting his phone number. Here are 10 things you absolutely must avoid when you’re flirting with him.
1. TOO MUCH EYE CONTACT
Obviously, eye contact is essential. It conveys your confidence in yourself while also indicating your interest in him. On the other hand, it is possible to overdo it. It’s fine to steal glances to get his attention, but no guy wants you to freak him out with excessive ogling.
2. ACTING WAY TOO TOUCHY AND FEELY
Touching a guy while flirting is perfectly acceptable, but you must be aware of the boundaries. While chatting, a light touch on his arm or shoulder is acceptable. On the other hand, pinching his buttocks or grabbing his junk because you think you’re being cute is illegal. So, no, you absolutely should not do that.
3. TRASHING OTHER GIRLS IN FRONT OF HIM
You will never raise yourself by bringing others down. Telling the guy that another girl is a b*tch will only make you appear unattractive, jealous, and insecure. If you have a legitimate beef with someone, take it up with them instead of dragging a stranger into the fray.
4. TRYING TOO HARD TO IMPRESS HIM
We understand that you want to make a good first impression on a guy, but pretending to be someone you’re not or lying about non-existent achievements will backfire in the long run, especially if he’s genuinely interested in learning more about you. You’ll eventually have to admit that your family doesn’t really own a beach house in the Hamptons, so you might as well just be yourself and let him like you for who you are.
