Various social experts also agree that flirting is a social art that often requires practice and timing.

If executed properly, it can either be the start of a great friendship or something romantic.

So, how does one master this social skill?

Elite-Singles shares some invaluable tips:

1. Offer an original compliment

Everyone loves a compliment. Don’t go for a cheesy, unoriginal pick-up line, opt for something genuine. Look at your date. What do you like about them? What stands out to you? As long as you keep things PG, commenting on whatever catches your eye is perfectly acceptable. The more specific you can be, the better. They’ll be secretly delighted that you’re taking note of the little things.

2. Remember details

Being engaged and interested in what your date has to say is a key part of flirting. Remember small details about their stories and bring them up later. They’ll be flattered that you’ve remembered what they’ve said.

3. Make them laugh

If you’re laughing together, it’s usually a pretty solid sign your crush likes you. Up your wit and seek opportunities to say something funny. If you’re paying attention to what your date is saying, you should be able to find plenty of moments to make a small joke and keep the mood light.

4. Use appropriate body language

Body language is undeniably a huge part of flirting. However, there’s a fine line between being uncomfortably physically forward and being flirty. Always make sure to steer clear of that line. When you do initiate contact, keep it short and always make sure it’s reciprocated. Enthusiastic consent is always necessary.

5. Smile and look happy

This may sound odd, but people who are genuinely content radiate attractiveness. Even before a date, a man or woman who looks like they’re having a great time just with their friends in a bar will draw the eyes of the opposite sex.
