Flirting can be a lot of fun… if you know how to do it the right way. However, when it’s time to catch someone’s eye, stress and anxiety takes a toll on many people. Flirting quickly turns into disaster when a lack of experience and fear of rejection hits hard.
It’s often difficult telling if someone likes you. Still, if you want to find love, you’ve got to get out there and trust your instincts. Sometimes, the best practice is trying new tactics during a flirtatious encounter.
So, here are nine fun phrases that you should incorporate into your next flirting session.
“They say that nothing lasts forever. This being said, will you be my nothing?”
Why it works: This quote is cheesy, but also adds an unexpected element into the flirt. It feels fresh, and chances are a lighthearted recipient will appreciate your playful banter.
“If you stood in front of a mirror holding 11 roses; you will see 12 of the most beautiful things in this word.”
Why it works: This quote effortlessly compliments the flirt-ee’s appearance. It is unexpected and somewhat indirect, but it’s also creative and cute.
“Let’s flip a coin! Heads – you’re mine; tails – I’m yours.”
Why it works: Humor nearly always wins! When in doubt, try to make the person you’re flirting with smile. Be careful with the humorous approach, though. Try to keep things lighthearted, but avoid anything potentially offensive.
“You remind me of my next girlfriend/boyfriend.”
Why it works: This one is rather unexpected, especially when it comes from a lady’s lips. But in the flirting game, “unexpected” is a win-win!
“I’m just planning my future and I wanted to ask you: Are you free for the rest of your life?”
Why it works: This one can be a bit risky, but with the right person, it could potentially reward you. This phrase shows confidence, but sometimes, that self-assurance comes across as arrogance. Work on the proper delivery on this one, and don’t overdo it.
“I’m not flirting. I’m just being super friendly to someone who is super attractive.”
Why it works: This statement accomplishes two things – it features a joke and a compliment at the same time. If you’re looking for a way to kill two birds with one stone, this light-hearted banter would do the trick!
“You’re so beautiful that you made me forget my pickup line!”
Why it works: Again, unexpected lines sometimes make for the best first impressions. Girls anticipate cheesy pickup lines. Not only is this one not corny, but it also compliments her appearance and makes her feel good about your interaction with her.
“If you like water, then you’d like 80% of my body!”
Why it works: This flirtatious quote is ridiculously silly. It shows that you’re not afraid of being goofy in order to break the ice.
“I dropped my drink on my foot when I saw you. I’ll need your name and number for insurance purposes.”
Why it works: Although this is an obvious play at getting contact information, the fact that you want to be creative instead of sticking with your usual lines is most definitely going to pay off for you. Good luck!
Being single comes with its challenges, and one of the biggest is attempting to find the right match. Remember to have fun when you put yourself out there. Rejection sucks, but you can get over it quickly if you meet new people regularly and enjoy their company.
