"WHAT IS FLIRTING?"
- Question submitted by Anonymous
Flirting was invented by Cosmo to make everyone embarrass themselves. The end.
Honestly, you guys, flirting only works when someone is already interested in you. If you’re super into someone and they say “You look SO FINE in that dress” you giggle and the two of you make out and it’s done. If you’ve never met someone and they say “You look SO FINE in that dress” you want to slap their mouth and call security.
Flirting = talking. If you’re interested in someone, literally just talk to them and you’re fine. If you ask someone a normal question (i.e. where are you from, what’s your major, when did you move here, where do you work, do you live in this hood, do you know *mutual friend,* who is your lit professor, etc) it will lead to normal conversation where you can talk about normal things that you have in common and begin to cultivate something totally normal and real and cute and fun.
Let your eye contact linger a little longer, listen to them with genuine interest, and when all else fails, lie/pretend you sent in this question because you wanted to know how to flirt with them… that shit is cute.
Oh my god.
I just watched a “How To Flirt” video, for business research purposes… which means two things:
1. My life is now complete.
2. I agree with Dannielle (eye contact, be normal, Cosmo-invented, etc), so now I can use my part of the post to highlight video stills and we can all get a good laugh.
FLIRTING REQUIRES A POSITIVE ATTITUDE AND SELF CONFIDENCE AND A LIGHT SWEATER:
FLIRTING IS TALKING ABOUT BUTTERFLIES:
FLIRTING IS PRETENDING THAT THE OTHER PERSON IS A CHEESEBURGER OR BOWL OF ICE CREAM:
FLIRTING IS ABOVE THE BELT.
