This is an especially tough situation for a single woman.
Of course being a single and independent woman has its advantages, but there may be times when you wish that a significant other is beside you to share life’s ups and downs.
During a social gathering or when you go out with your friends at a bar, you might meet someone you find attractive.
So how do you express your interest in this guy?
Most women practice the art of flirting to get the attention of the guy she’s interested in. Initiating a conversation and saying flirty one liners is one of the best ways to catch a person’s fancy.
If you are ready to come out of your shell and mingle with the guys, check out this guide.
There are a lot of flirty one liners that you can find on the internet, but you shouldn’t say them word for word (verbatim). You may take some inspiration from these pick-up lines or icebreakers, but you should also infuse your own personality into the witty line that you want to say. Also, what if the guy has heard that line previously from another woman or his friends? That would be too awkward, right? This is an example from the internet: “Is it hot in here or is it just you?” Instead of saying this exactly, you can just say, “You’re so damn hot, I think we’re both catching fire!”
If you have decided on the flirty one liner that you want to say, practice saying it aloud, preferably in front of a mirror so you can make some improvements, if necessary, on how you look or sound. As they always say, practice makes perfect, and this allows you to gain some confidence before the actual opportunity comes along.Also, prepare yourself mentally and emotionally for some unpleasant circumstances or incidents that may happen, like the guy ignoring you at the party.
Before you flirt with a guy, assess the situation first. Is it appropriate to say your flirty one liners in the location you are in? Is the situation conducive for an interesting conversation? The location and situation are important factors for your flirty one liner to be effective. For instance, it is awkward to say your pick-up line when you are in the mall or office, but it is alright if you are at a bar or cocktail party, where the ambiance is friendlier and more cozy.
Even if you are feeling nervous and jittery, you should try to calm down and relax. Remember, you are not the only person in the room who is shy and feeling self-conscious! You just have to project an aura of confidence so that you will also feel confident in yourself and you will be able to deliver your flirty one liners without a hitch. Don’t forget to have fun so your conversations will just flow naturally.
Finally, don’t lose hope if you experience rejection from a guy. If he’s not responding or he becomes hostile towards you, move on to another section of the place. You don’t have to suffer from insults or bad remarks, remember that you don’t deserve that. There will always be someone who can appreciate you for who you truly are. So move on and try to stay calm and relaxed. If you find another interesting person at the party or bar, then you should try approaching him if you are still up to it. The key here is you should not give up just because of a bad experience.
Flirting with a guy is no easy task. It requires confidence and lots of guts to accomplish successfully. With these tips on how to deliver the best flirty one liners, you should be able to express your interest. But if you’re not immediately successful, don’t be so hard on yourself because there will be another opportunity.
