Flirting is a great way to show a woman that you are interested in her and to figure out if she is also interested in you. While flirting may seem complicated, the exchange can actually be quite straight-forward. If you try to keep it light and fun and remain honest and respectful, flirting can be a very enjoyable experience.

Show Interest

This may seem obvious, but the most important part of flirting simply involves demonstrating that you are interested. Ask questions about her and listen to her responses with genuine interest. Share information about yourself as well, but let her know that you want to get to know her better. This will send a signal that you are interested in pursing a relationship and establish your romantic intentions.

Smiling and Eye Contact

Smiling and making regular eye contact helps to elevate an exchange from a simple conversation to full-on flirting. Again, this helps to establish your romantic intentions. Make sure your smile is genuine and your eye contact is not too intense, otherwise you'll appear creepy or off-putting. Be casual and allow your smile be natural and charming.

Give Compliments

The key to giving compliments in the early stages of flirting is to not be too over-the-top. Laying it on too thick will make the woman think that you are being insincere. Be honest about something that you admire and casually tell her what you think. A well-placed sincere compliment is a sure-fire way to let her know that you want to be more than friends.

Have Fun

One major aspect to flirting is a fun back-and-forth exchange between the two participants. Verbal games or a little bit of teasing differentiate flirting from regular conversation. Make sure that the woman you are interested in is willing to play along -- if she does not participate in your back-and-forth banter, she may not appreciate your sense of humor or she may not be interested in pursuing a romantic relationship with you.

Be Comfortable and Confident

If you seem uncomfortable and lack self confidence, your flirting tactics will seem forced and the woman will be likely to loose interest. If you seem desperate and needy, you will only allienate her. Confidence is very attractive. If you let that confidence flow the act of flirting will come naturally.

Be Polite and Respectful

While it important to be funny and let the woman know you are interested in her, it is essential that you do not cross the line into being disrespectful. If you have just met the person, mentioning sex or being bawdy in your humor is not appropriate. Even though sex might be on your mind, keep the flirting clean and avoid making your partner feel uncomfortable.
