The kind of flirting he'll respond to best.

For some people, flirting comes as naturally to them as breathing. They flirt with everyone and everything, and can't seem to stop the flow of flirting. For others, no matter how they try, when they flirt it just makes everything feel awkward and uncomfortable.

There are many reasons why people flirt: to increase their self-esteem, to get someone into bed, to strengthen feelings of intimacy in their relationship, to feel what it might be like to be in a relationship, and to get things from other people. Think of how many times a waiter or waitress was flirty with you to get a bigger tip. There are times when we use flirting as a way to get out of a ticket or to get an upgrade at a hotel.

Interestingly, insecure people are often better at flirting than confident people, as confident people don't always feel the need for approval from others or to be liked.

Flirting can be a game for some people, such as if a guy in a club flirts with a woman he knows he doesn't have a chance with, so he just keeps lobbying pick-up line after pick-up line in hopes that she'll know how ridiculous he's being and laugh.

There are times when we're too out of it to flirt and we try anyway, which is usually when we drunk-dial (so not a good idea). Flirting can become so ingrained in someone's personality that they don't even notice and just move through their day flirting with everyone.

When it comes to astrology, each zodiac sign has its own flirting style and has their own preference for the kind of flirting they really respond to. Some signs may get intrigued and flattered by a more traditional and charming type of flirting, while others may find it false and respond more to the exact opposite kind of flirting, which is more in-your-face and blunt.

Here's the kind of flirting he loves, according to his zodiac sign.

When a Taurus individual flirts, they play the long game and show how down to earth and stable they are. They may even indicate what a good provider they'd be. However, they respond best to the kind of flirting that involves a lot of touching. If you're flirting with a Taurus and he makes a joke, be sure to lightly touch his arm or find opportunities to accidently brush up against him.

Scorpios flirt in very intense, brooding, and sometimes dark ways, as if their passion is right at the surface and can erupt at any moment.

You'll still need to show them that you can take their heat.

It can be challenging to tell the difference between a Capricorn flirting and applying for a job, as they flirt by talking about how stable, self-disciplined, and how great their career is going (and possibly how much money they're making). They can seem less flirty and more aloof. Capricorns respond to someone who uses flirting to make it clear that they have goals, ambitions, and that they're independently climbing their own ladder of success.
