1. Use artistic statements

These are the kinds of statements that you hear about in the old schmaltzy romance movies. Use statements that are artistic, “Your eyes are like the ocean.” The key to this kind of flirt is to appear authentic. If you blurt it out when she is trying to engage you in a discussion on Obamacare, you are going to lose her. Be authentic and wait for those little moments where you say something very sweet and sentimental. Pretend you are looking at your favorite thing, express the same statements you would about a lovely painting, “The color of those eyes is just stunning, I could look at them for hours.

Best on: The Water Signs, Scorpio, Cancer, and Pisces will give you the dreamiest response. They eat this stuff for breakfast.

Worst Offenders/Won’t work with: Gemini or Libra who will wonder what you are trying to sell them.

2. Use original …and specific…compliments.

Compliments are the flirts best friend. This is also the easiest way to flirt as well. Be authentic here, and always go one step above what everybody else would do. You look great is nice to hear. Want to know what is better? “That color really makes your eyes pop, wow!” or, “that skirt really shows off those sexy legs.”

Best on: Taurus, Scorpio, and Leo, who love it when you fix your flattery on them

Worst Offenderrs/Won’t work with: Capricorn and Virgo have a hard time accepting compliments because it is not productive. Compliment their work ethic, that will mean something to them.

3. Use personal space wisely

The best way to flirt is to minimize the amount of personal space between you and your ‘target’. But there is a fine line between closing in and creeping in, so mind your p’s and q’s. No touchey to someone that you have just met for at least the first drink minimum. By the time you establish more comfort with them, make a point of touching but just to establish chemistry. This is the old brushing lint off the shoulder approach, or just saw a bug on your arm, sorry. Touch once and let it go until the chemistry takes over from there. Anything more than that and you begin to enter the territory of putting yourself a little “too” much out there. Don’t be a prude. But don’t be creepy either. Use your personal space wisely.

Best on: Virgo and Capricorn who really don’t need to be close to anyone. Keep your distance they will view it as a sign of respect.

Worst Offenders/Won’t work with: Aries who will wonder why you are being so distant.

4. Smile

Smiling is one of the oldest tricks in the book when it comes to flirting, because it actively engages the other person without saying a word. When you smile at someone you send an instant signal that is very appealing. It isn’t just, I have a pretty face and am a positive person. The message you send with a smile is, I’m friendly which means approachable which means you can flirt with me and I won’t tear your head off. You say all that with one smile. So stop thinking this piece of dating advice is too old school. It works, you should totally try it. Smile! Your future soul mate might be watching!

Best on: All signs! Only grumpy people don’t like a smile. Leo, Aries, and Sagittarius will forgive almost anything if you smile at them right.

Worst Offenders/Won’t work with: Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra, will think a smile is hiding something, so be authentic when you smile and follow it up with good conversation.

5. Have something to say.

What you don’t want is to be caught up mid-flirt and finish someone else’s sentence with an awkward silence. Have something to say. Your personality is what is going to get you to close this deal, not your pretty shoes or your full wallet. So have something to say. If starting conversation is difficult, scan the headlines before you head out for the night and have a few openers ready, just be sure to use them appropriately. If someone launches a conversation about the NBA Playoffs, don’t talk about what Obama is going to do with the pipeline.

Best on: Aquarius, Libra, and Gemini who always love a good chart. The geekier the better.

Worst Offenders/Won’t work with: Sagittarius, who wants to play more, talk less

6. Be funny.

Having a good go to funny story on hand is always great when flirting. If you ever experience an epic fail mid flirt, time to bring in one of your funniest memories. Just remember to make the stories good ones. This is not the time to bring out how this reminds you of the time you wet your pants stories. Have a funny story to back up your natural charm and the conversation will flow.

Best on: Leo, Sagittarius, Aries, who love a good belly laugh

Worst OffendersWon’t work with: hardly anybody, most people warm up to an appropriately placed joke or funny story

7. Reciprocate.

Flirting is only fun when two people are doing it at the same time. If someone is sending you signals, send them back! There’s nothing worse than dropping a nice compliment only to have it unappreciated. If you don’t respond to the flirts that come your way, expect them to stop coming.

Best on: Scorpio, Leo, and Taurus, who give as good as they receive

Worst Offenders/Won’t work with: Aries likes to show off, so let them!

8. “What makes you happy?”

Stuck for an opener? There is no human on this planet that doesn’t want to hear these words, even the die hard commitment phobes want someone to want to make them happy. Asking this question puts you in the playing field of “I care”. This is a very easy way to get the flirt banter going. When someone knows they are talking to someone that is actually interested in what makes them happy, they want to have more of those conversations.

Best on: Pisces will be so moved by this statement they will move heaven and earth to make you happy too!

Worst Offenders/Won’t work with: Gemini will wonder what your hidden agenda is, and Libra will wonder why “happy” matters to you. To Libra, that is just not practical.

9. Make your flirt target feel like the only person in the room.

There are a number of ways to do this that are situation specific. If you are at a bar, picnic, or cocktail party for example, slide yourself over to the person in question and say something that makes them feel like they stood out to you. “I guess this must be where all the smart people are sitting tonight” or something to that effect. Old cliché lines like “that shirt you were wearing stood out from across the room” actually work.

Best on: Scorpio, Pisces, and Cancers who are a little bit needier than others.

Worst Offenders/Won’t Work With: Sagittarius and Gemini will feel pinned down and restricted by this

10. Yes, of course, ask them their sign.

It’s the oldest flirt technique in the book, and it is still being used today. Why? Because it works. Of course we are going to tell you to find out their star sign. But what you won’t read about in other flirting tips is how to follow that up. Ask them their sign, and then no matter what they say, respond with, “Oh you must be the ‘Scorpio’ my psychic told me I was going to meet tonight.” Or, insert whatever zodiac sign they say. You will be surprised at how many people this very easy technique works on. And of course if they ask you who your psychic is, send them on over to Astrology Answers of course!

Best on: The big thinker Aquarius will think this is a flirting mind game and will love it. So will Pisces, Scorpio, and Cancer

Worst Offenders/Won’t Work With: Capricorn will find this conversation dull, but intriguing enough if you tell them their star sign tells them a lot about their strong work ethic

11. “What do you think?”

This four worded sentence is fully loaded with opportunities. When you present this question to someone it puts you in charge, and the ball in their park all at the same time. You are commanding an answer from them whether they want to give it to you or not. Ask this question during any flirt adventure and you are destined to have results. Everyone wants someone that cares about what they think. When you start at the opening gate showing that you care, you send a very strong message as a very viable and reliable flirt partner indeed. What do you think?

Best on: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius who are dying for you to ask this question. Leo will also feel very important if you ask this question.

Worst Offenders/Won’t Work With: Scorpio and Pisces who will turn the statements into feeling statements

12. Relax.

Flirting is nerve wracking! But you know what? Flirting is ALWAYS flattering, even if the person is unavailable to flirt back. So you have no reason to be nervous when you are flirting because if you do it right, your recipient will be happy no matter what. And isn’t that what relationships are all about anyway? So relax. Don’t let the nerves take over, you are flirting to have fun right? You got this, now go.

Best on: Everybody
