Top 10 flirting tips
By Fran Greene
10. Flirting is an attitude A good flirt is self-confident and not afraid to take risks. Be enthusiastic
and positive — it works!
9. Start a conversation The best opening line is saying hello. Talk about the surroundings, ask a
question, ask for help or state an opinion.
8. Have fun Be playful, light-hearted and spontaneous. Show your vulnerability.
7. Use props Never leave home without a prop. Props are natural conversation starters.
They encourage conversation and others will be compelled to start talking to
you. Great props include dogs, kids, unusual jewelry, a fabulous scent, a
sweatshirt with your favorite passion, interesting ties, hats or an
interesting book or newspaper.
6. Be the host Change your behavior from guest to host. You are not a passive person
waiting around for romance; instead, you're the welcome committee.
5. Make the first move Move closer to the person you want to meet. Say hello.
4. Listen You have two ears and one mouth because you should listen twice as much as
you speak. Listening is a true art. Your flirting partner will be drawn to
you. Everyone loves to be heard.
3. Eye contact Make eye contact, but please look your partner in the eye gently (no more
than a few seconds) and then glance away. Don’t stare — it’s a turn off.
2. Compliment Compliment your flirting partner. The best compliments have the element of
surprise. The "flirtee" will know that you really noticed them. Remember,
your compliments must be honest, sincere and genuine. When you receive a
compliment, the best response is a simple "Thank you!"
1. Smile It's contagious. Smiling makes you so much more approachable. A smile lights
up your face and draws people to you. You'll be a people magnet.

see if anyone they know has had a positive experience with a particular
online dating website.

unique situations that might require a more specialized online dating
website. Some online dating sites cater to customized audiences including
political affiliations, sexual preferences, race, religion, etc.

to your top three and compare them to determine pros and cons of each. Pay
