Sometimes us guys have a hard time picking up on the fact that you're flirting. Sure, we all know that business about you touching your hair when we're talking, and you leaning forward and touching a chest (his or yours) when you giggle, but those "sure-fire signs" can be interpreted as wrestling with a bad hair day or a case of laughter-induced vertigo, respectively. On the other hand, playing Britney '07 while getting out of your car may be a touch overkill (as well as supremely embarrassing if he's not down with your lady business). The best play is the middle ground. Here are nine low-risk pickup tricks with oodles of upside:
1. Juice up the physical contact. A hand to booty move is a little tacky; instead, go for an extra long hug, a kiss hello or goodbye, or an opportunity for a lap-sit. Breaking the force field is a great start and if you've rubbed your feet on some fuzzy carpet first and there's a literal shock when you touch him, well, bully for you.

2. Buy that guy a drink, a chicken Caesar wrap or whathaveyou. Irrespective of what the last several decades have done in terms of earning parity and gender role flipfloppery, we always recall when a lady buys us a brewski.
3. Compliment his appearance. If you can throw in a reasonable and flattering celebrity comparison, so much the better. 7 Phrases Men Love To Hear

4. Groom him. If his collar is askance or he has a mess of unintentional fly-aways or he's rocking a frat tuck (a maneuver in which only the front of a man's shirt is tucked in, oftentimes exposing an interesting belt buckle or emphasizing the crotch region) in a clearly no frat tuck milieu, hook him up. It's not selfish to increase his sexy. Also, this clearly juices up the physical contact.
