Whether it’s your first crush or your twentieth crush, finding ways to flirt with them can feel like an awkward, scary, and exciting experience all at once. No matter how many times you’ve done it, you feel like you have no idea what you’re doing. Start by trying out these 9 subtle ways to flirt with your crush.
# Drop Something in Front of Your Crush
If your crush walks past you, drop your book or water bottle or whatever is in your hand right as they pass. When you both lean down to pick it up, you can accidentally bump into them and laugh about it.
# Spend More Time with Your Common Friends
If you have friends in common, start hanging out with them more often. This is a less obvious way to get closer to your crush since you’ll be more likely to both get invited to the same things if you are hanging out with the same group.
# Leave Your Crush Wanting More By Keeping Conversations Short
As much as possible, be the one to end conversations. And end them before you run out of things to say. In fact, right when things start flowing, come up with a reason you have to go. The sudden end right when it’s getting good will leave your crush wishing for more.
# Text Your Crush the Right Amount
Texting your crush is a great chance to flirt. But texting them too much will make it seem like you’re obsessing over them. If you’re having a regular back and forth exchange with them, at least once or twice, you should wait 10+ minutes to reply. When you do reply, say that you were busy or had to talk to a friend. Make sure that you aren’t always the one texting first—even if that means going a full day without texting your crush.
# Subtly Flirt with a Smile as You Walk Past
A quick smile and wave without actually stopping shows you notice your crush but that you aren’t dropping what you’re doing to talk to them. It’ll get them noticing you without feeling like you’re stalking.
# Find Your Common Interests
Look for things you and your crush are both interested in. Don’t fake an interest in something you aren’t familiar with just to flirt. If you don’t know of any common interests yet, you can say you want to learn more about something they are interested in. For example, “Oh, I’ve never seen that movie! But I’ve always wanted to watch it!” This gives your crush an opening to invite you to watch it with them!
# Draw Attention to Your Lips
When you’re sitting next to your crush, pull out some lip balm and slowly apply it to your lips. Don’t look at them when you do this. Just do it when you know they’re looking.
# Pretend You Didn’t Hear Your Crush
When your crush sits near you and say something to you, say “What?” as if you didn’t quite catch what they said. This will make them lean in a little closer to repeat it. Make eye contact when they lean in.
# Stare At Them in a Not Creepy Way
If you want to make it subtly obvious that you like them, stare at your crush when they aren’t paying attention. They’ll feel the gaze and turn. Wait until they make eye contact and then dart your eyes away and act bashful. Don’t overdo it, just be quietly embarrassed.
