Effective Ways to Use Body Language to Flirt with a Guy.
Getting a guy to notice you or to realize that you like him can seem like a difficult challenge. Men do not always understand that you might just be throwing hints out to him that you are flirting him. Sometimes it takes a little bit more effort to truly get a guy to notice that you are interested and that you might just be trying to figure out if he is interested in you too. Here are some effective ways to use body language to flirt with a guy below.
Ways to Use Body Language to Flirt with a Guy
Flip your hair
It is a subtle gesture but sometimes when you flip your hair or play with it, it insinuates that you are a little bit nervous around him. If you are slightly nervous around your guy, he might just get the clue that you are wanting to be a little bit more than friends and that you are interested in him. Do not go overboard with this gesture.
Put your cell phone away
In this day and age, technology can take over people’s lives. If you simply put away your cell phone, he may notice that it is not sitting there in front of you like you could be waiting for something better. If it goes off with a ding and he notices it but you just ignore it, he can generally pick up that the engagement you are having with him by talking or doing an activity that you are much more interested in him than you are with a friend’s latest update on Instagram or a work-related email.
Give him a genuine smile
Make eye contact and truly give that guy that you like a true genuine smile. If he is funny or if he says something that just triggers you to smile, make sure you look that guy right in the eye and flash him a big smile that is natural. Do not fake a smile or a laugh ever just to get his attention. Sometimes you might just look at him and the urge to smile could just come across you.
Give him light touches
If you are talking about something and you find something funny, touch his arm slightly while you laugh. If you are talking about something serious, you can still use that gesture to let him know that you are intrigued by what he is saying and that you are listening. If you need to get up to use the restroom or to excuse yourself for a moment, put your hand gently on his shoulder as you get up. Maybe even move a “stray hair” back into place. Guys love that subtle and gentle touch and it is a great way to flirt.
When talking, lean in toward the guy
This way of flirting shows that you are genuinely listening to what he has to say and that you want him to listen to you too. If you get a little close, you might just ‘accidentally’ bump each other. When flirting, no touch is accidental.
Use common sense when you are with the guy
When you are talking, be animated and not boring. There is body language that is appropriate when speaking that goes along with verbal communication. Talk like you own the world and use self-confidence. When you speak, do not look at the floor or beyond him. Look at him when you talk and keep your head up and full of confidence.
Make eye contact
This gesture cannot be stressed enough. You need to make eye contact when talking but do not hold it too long so that it is awkward. Even if it is a half of a second, you need to let him know that you are looking at him to see his reaction or that you are actually listening to what he is saying. Stay casual and do not stare. You can always use a second glance or even dart your eyes back to him every now and then to make sure that he knows you are interested in him.
Change your expression
If the guy you are with gives you a wink or a nod, show that you are a bit amused rather than disgusted by his expression if you are interested in him. If he has a smile on his face, raise your eyebrows ever so slightly to indicate that you are interested too. Avoid overdoing it or they will think you are a little too intrigued by them.
Lean in to talk into his ear
Are you in a crowded place and it is too loud or around people that you do not really want to hear you talk? Lean in just a little bit and tell him right into his ear what it is that you want to say. Simply using body language to get a little bit closer can show that you are interested.
Be relaxed around him
A guy can read a lot from your body language just when you are relaxed. Sure, you might be excited but if your motions are too over-the-top or too quick, it can come off like you are anxious or wound up about something. Just chill out and let things happen at the right pace.
