Few artists have made a mark in my own life and Your story might be different. Many out there believe that flirting is behaving and they unlike others need to learn how not to send out signals. The prodigies must be hailed and forgotten before reading this article. Today we shall be talking about the basics of smoothly sliding into DM!

Disclaimer: This article has not been gendered and is applicable for both men and women. If the tips did not work please question your capability and not my impeccable advice. Just kidding! Go ahead and comment what you think. I hope I am of some help.
1. Keep it simple sexy!
Definitely open with a line, just do not dip it in cheese. Women generally have a bank of experience with the infamous one-liners parading as flirtation. Be it “Aren’t you exhausted? Blah blah! Cause you have been running in my mind yada yada…” or the classic puke-trigger ‘Hi! How was heaven when you left it?”, these timeless “pick”-up-lines are not the way to go anymore. My dear men, my message would be to open your line with a Hi and a clear confession of your interest. Nothing floors her more than a confident declaration. It is the same way to go for you too, my ladies! Keep it simple and clean. Give a straight compliment and trash that flouncy talk.

2. “In aakhon ki Masti mein”
Yes, it is as important as it is rumoured to be. Keep eye contact while you are speaking. It is unimaginably off-putting when the man seems to be sending signals but keeps straying with his eyes. For a man too, he wants the lady to look him in the eye when talking about mundane things like the temperature of the coffee! It does not matter. Your eyes make the primary weapon that helps you flirt with the most ease and effect.
3. Smile can go a mile
And a little more flirting is showing your pleasure at the presence of another person. Smiling is the easiest means to flirt. Do not try to ape the crow’s feet or curse yourself for not having that defective muscle strain that could give you that priceless dimple. Especially do not try to go the Eugene way of a smoulder, because in all probability you will look constipated rather than dazzle your Rapunzel. Just keep it genuine and make your smile look like a bloom in the presence of sunshine. Yes, cheesy right? A little bit of cheese never hurts.
4. Body Language
Any flirting tip list will have you twirling your hair and turning your body towards the person. I would suggest you don’t force set flirting gestures upon yourself. You might not be the hair twirling kind, instead, you rub your neck, or doodle suggestive bits on café napkins (this is fictional I swear!). I don’t know! It does not matter what, try to relax when you flirt. Let your natural body language express itself. Do not load yourself with enlisted postures and gestures. It will make things awkward and silly in no time.

5. Break monotony
The biggest challenge of flirting is to work against the technicalities and make it a natural exchange. Flirting has been treated as a superpower for years now. You do not have to spend your time uttering the rulebook in your mind. Try your best to not get worked up and mess up the motions. If a little clumsy is your way and your interest is at all in sync with you, then my friend, it is going to happen. Do take care of the silence that comes in between technicalities. The awkward hush will definitely reverse the positive atmosphere your flirting hopefully had created. Avoid that and keep it easy and light.
