We’ve all wondered if we had what it takes to flirt online. You see advertisements on television that makes it seem so easy, but when we try it ourselves, we fail miserably. It can be embarrassing, but, understand that it happens to the best of us. Fortunately for you, we have 7 tips that will not only help you flirt online but be amazing at it.
1. Get active.
Instead of limiting yourself to just one chat room or just talking to a few people, we say your mark in numerous places on the dating site of choice. After you set up your profile, browse the site’s message board, blog, and chat rooms. Every chance you interact with someone, use that as an opportunity to flirt (keep in mind, flirting doesn’t always mean vulgar. You can flirt with a simple compliment).
2. Just be yourself.
Flirting isn’t much fun if you’re trying to remember details of some made up persona. Needless to say, you can make your life so much easier if you be honest with the people you’re flirting with. If you don’t feel comfortable with sharing personal details about yourself, don’t. You shouldn’t feel like you have to answer something you aren’t comfortable with.
3. Keep things light.
Flirting shouldn’t be a serious affair. It’s supposed to be fun, light, carefree, and maybe even a little risqué. You don’t want to talk about topics that could be difficult to digest or that could lead to a difficult discussion.
4. Practice makes for perfection.
Just like any other skills, flirting is something that you’ll want to master. How do you become a master of anything, you have to practice and practice it a lot! Understandably, you may fumble along the way from time to time, but even these little mistakes can be fun, too. So don’t worry because with time and practice, you’ll be able to make them swoon just with a hello.
5. Use extra features on the site.
Some dating sites have fun little gimmicks unique to that site. By all means, use them! Sure, in the beginning, they can seem harmless, but when you combine those little gestures with flirtatious conversations and playful banter, then it becomes pretty clear the intention.
6. Don’t be afraid of boundaries.
There can sometimes be when you’re chatting where things get a little… Creepy. If and When that happens, you shouldn’t feel obligated to keep talking to or flirting with the person that makes you uncomfortable. End communication with said person and if they continue to contact you after you ask them not to, report them to the administration about it.
7. Think about physical boundaries also.
Okay, hear us out. Maybe things aren’t to the point where you want to meet anyone that you’ve been flirting with, but eventually, you might want to. In the case of that ever happening, you should have some rules about how physical you will let things go. If you don’t want to kiss, don’t. If you don’t want to meet anywhere but in a public venue, don’t.
