Tips for the shy - Use your vivid imagination and walk through a mental picture of your doing every single one of these flirting tips, it'll make it easier - I promise.
At a party, gathering or social setting:
You see him from across the room, make subtle eye contact. A moment later, make real eye contact, smile and look away. This signals interest, no debate about it. He will know.
If you are introduced by someone, be sure to shake hands.
Repeat his name after it's told to you. Repeat it during the first conversation. Every man loves to hear his name said by a woman, and this way your more likely to remember it.
Ask open ended questions (not one answered by 'yes' or 'no').
Listen intently and ask a follow up.
Flattery will get you everywhere. Nothing too obvious though.
Very subtly mimic his posture and voice tone and speed. He will feel an instant bond!
Play with your hair while looking at him, with a subtle smile
Look slowly around the room while he talks to you, elongated and giving him ample time to look at your arching neck.
- Ask where he got his tie/shirt/other clothing, you'd like to pick up a similar item for your brother/father
- Just walk up to him and ask him he saw "recent concert/big show" No matter yes or no, say oh you heard someone talking about it and you thought it was him.
- If you're at a party, just walk up to him and ask him who he knows there. Probably you know some of the same. Compliment one of them.
- Confess something (maybe something he can relate to) "Wow, it looks like I'm the only one who didn't bring something to the party. I was just in such a rush, I didn't have time.
And now a few don'ts:
Try not to fidget. Don't stare. Don't mention looking for someone, or your family problems, or any problems for that manner. Don't tease, or try to seem easy, or be overtly sexual. Don't keep your arms and legs crossed out of nervousness, this is very closed body language.
Basically, it doesn't matter too much what you say as long as you approach with confidence but in a casual manner. Men enjoy meeting women who seem nice and intelligent, and who take care of how they look. Yes, they want to meet you, so put your shyness behind you and go for it!
