Flirting Tips and Tricks: Things You Should Know Before You Try

Flirting is fun. It can be an exciting way to show a potential partner that you’re interested in them. But if you’re not knowledgeable about the art of flirting, it can be scary and intimidating, especially when it comes to flirting with men.

A user asked, “How the heck do you flirt with men?” and Redditors shared their best advice, tips, and strategies for flirting with men that can help you feel more confident and increase your chances of success.

Be Direct

This user added, “Maybe even blunt. “I find you attractive. Talk to me, and let’s get to know each other.”

Don’t Waste Time

A user offered this advice, “Yeah, I’m like kind of a shy person, but I’ve never had issues initiating a move with a guy I’m into. Literally, I hate wasting my time and waiting around, so if I’m into a guy, I just casually ask to hang out or strike up a conversation with them. I’ve literally never had a negative reaction from a guy when I’ve done it.”

Ask For A Date

A Redditor also shared, “You have to be direct with men – my husband does not pick up on subtle hints….most men don’t. You have to tell them very clearly.”

Make The First Move

A Redditor added, “Enthusiasm. Not fake or manufactured. Interest. Excitement.”

Drop The Sarcasm

One Redditor said, “We live in a pretty sarcastic and non-committal era. People would rather be distracted than interact. If you have a particular guy you’re interested in, find out what he’s into and figure out what’s interesting about it.”

Be Physical

Another user said, “A guy asked me if he could pet my dog 6 months ago. I replied with, “do you wanna go make out in a snow bank?” We are now engaged.”

Offer Food
