Whether you're an eye batter, a lock flipper or a gaze holder, spring flirting season has officially sprung. In honor of outdoor happy hours, sun dresses and, well, cheer's reemergence from the winter doldrums, here are a few resources to help you define, refine and get your flirt on.
1. "What's your sign, baby?"
Have you ever looked at another woman in mid-flirt with a rising dose of vomit in your throat? Perhaps it's because she's a Taurus prone to "sweet and sensual" flirting and you're an Aries, much more accustomed to your own "brash and brainy" style. Check out dailymantra to learn all about how your sign flirts.
2. Flirting is in our genes.
Singles and married people tend to be the most flirtatious of the love stages, according to Time, though their come-hither cues are often non-verbal and subconscious. Biologists say the proclivity to flirt is passed through DNA; our existence is proof that our ancestors out-flirted the reproductive competition.
3. Smart, ugly people are better flirts.
Ok, maybe that's not exactly how flirting expert Eve Marx put it, but she points out that there's an art to attracting the opposite sex and it sure doesn't depend on your bone structure. In fact, you might not get what you want if you let your looks do the work for you. The best flirtation comes from learning to present yourself with confidence.
