Dear Dr. Romance: How Do I Flirt to Grab a Guy's Attention?
Don't try too hard to be flirty and funny -- you could easily come off silly.

Dear Dr. Romance:

I'd like to learn something flirty and funny that will grab a guys attention!?

I am going bowling with my crush and a group of friends (I never talk to my crush so this is huge!) and I am trying to think of some cute flirty things to say! Any suggestions? Examples please :) -Like let's say I make a mistake and get a gutterball or fall or something what is something flirty and cute I can say? - Or lets say he is pretty good at bowling- whats a good cute comment?! Stuff like that :)

Dear Reader:

Guys like to feel competent, so congratulationg him on his bowling skill is great. Don't try too hard to be flirty and funny -- you could easily come off silly. Instead, make eye contact, respond to what he's saying or doing, and ask him for help with your bowling. You don't need to create a false personality to attract him. You want him attracted to you, as you are. Just look good (but not slutty) and be alert to whatever he's saying and doing. "Turn on Your Charm" has more detailed flirting tips. The Unofficial Guide to Dating Again has the specific conversations you're looking for, plus a lot more tips and exercises to help you get over your self-consciousness.
