I’m a fan and a friend of Fran Greene
When I first met Fran she kindly sent me a copy of her book “The flirting bible” (See details below) I remember that I was skeptical until I read the book and then I remember that I’d told my readers to buy a copy and read it twice!
Fran’s an authentic and delightful New-Yorker with a heart of gold, she’s also a Nationally renowned relationship expert and former advice columnist for Match.com (To find out more about her CLICK HERE )
Last week Fran and I were catching up on the telephone and I asked her to share an article for my blog…here it is…enjoy
Top ten flirting tips guaranteed to make you a fabulous flirt.
What is flirting?
Flirting is a wonderful icebreaker and tension reducer.
Flirting is testing the romantic waters. It’s the best way to make a connection with someone.
Flirting is a great way to let someone know that you find them interesting, attractive, fun or appealing to you.
10. Flirting is an Attitude:
A great flirt is self confident and not afraid to take a risk. 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. Let your sense of humor shine through.
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. Amazing props include dogs, kids, unusual jewelry, a fabulous scent, a sweatshirt with your favorite passion, an eye catching tie, or an interesting book or magazine.
6. Be the Host:
Change your behavior from the role of guest to host. You are not the passive person in waiting, but rather the welcoming committee.
5. Make the First Move:
Move closer, pay a compliment, make eye contact, or say hi to the person you want to meet.
You have two ears and one mouth because you should listen twice as much as you talk. Practice active listening. Your flirting partner will be drawn to you. Everyone loves to be listened to!
3. Eye Contact:
Make eye contact, but please look your flirting interest in the eye gently, no more than 2-4 seconds, look away. Don’t stare – it’s a turn off.
Compliment your flirting partner. The best compliments have the element of surprise. The “flirtee” will know that you really noticed them. Your compliments must be honest, sincere, and genuine. When you receive a compliment the best response is merely thank you.
It is contagious! It will make you so much more approachable. A smile lights up your face and it will draw people towards you. You will be a people magnet! Try it.
