Tips for Flirting After Divorce
It doesn't have to be intimidating to re-enter into the dating world after divorce!

Extended flirting shows interest. At this point, indicate that you would like to get to know him better and request his phone number or a date. This is the hard part of flirting for a lot of people because you are actually risking rejection. However, if you have been flirting with the person for a while, your risk is pretty minimal. On the other hand, if the person is not interested, you still gained some good flirting practice.

Flirting Don'ts

  • Don't worry about flirting. It is a technique that is easy to learn.
  • Don't be overzealous or desperate. There is someone for everyone.
  • Don't stare. Instead, try smiling with your eyes.
  • Don't be afraid of getting close to someone, but don't engage in too much physical contact.

Red Flags

Even if you've put all your best flirting techniques into practice, there is a chance your flirting won't be successful. If at any point you sense that your subject has lost interest, it is possible. Look for the following non-verbal cues of disinterest:

  • Looking around
  • Crossing arms
  • No longer smiling
  • Redirecting the center of the body away from you

If you encounter any of these cues, you may simply state it was nice getting to know them or say that you see someone across the room you need to speak to. In any case, be polite and make your exit.

From Fear to Fun

Many of Divorce Detox's clients find (at first) the thought of flirting to be daunting, yet after a little practice, they discover that flirting as an adult is much easier than as a teen. With all the confidence gained in adulthood, flirting is often surprisingly fun.
