5. Let your brazen friend do the ice-breaking. Some of the best moments on CBS's How I Met Your Mother are when the overly suave Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) pulls the sudden "Have you met, Ted?" line on an unsuspecting girl and an unsuspecting Ted. As exaggerated as these scenes may be, relying on a bolder friend to make introductions is a pretty smart move. Even if said friend does it in an obnoxious manner, the end justifies the means, right?
Happy non-aggressive flirting!
