OMG, did he just flirt with me?
Wait. Did I flirt back? Am I a flirt?
If you’re someone who’s ever asked yourself this question, you’re in luck. This quiz will shed some light on if the things you do out of habit make you a flirt.
They’re friendly, likable, and true sweet-talkers. They ALWAYS make sure everyone feels included, especially that one person. Having a listening ear, giving a butt-load of compliments, and laughing at jokes (even when they aren’t funny) can charm the shyest of the shy.
The Eye Drawer
Repeat after me: Eyes speak louder than words. Direct eye contact can shift the tone of a conversation, making it go from dull to intriguing. Long gazes, eye-batting, and “smizing” showcase the feelings you don’t verbalize, testing the waters without putting yourself and your feelings out there.
Have you ever noticed how body language can alter the way you see someone? Body language is TRUE flirt form. Hair twirling, pouty lips, leaning in towards someone, and that coy smile all fall under this category. When flirting, your body language is alert and suggestive, screaming “I SEE YOU!” In a quiet way of course. It’s like a second language that goes hand-in-hand with what you want to express verbally, working to get the other party intrigued.
The Touch Monster
All it takes is one simple touch. Affection can be the ultimate flirt detector. A hug, a subtle handhold, a shoulder graze, all suggesting you are into into someone. These constant movements can be perceived as a subtle, yet romantic way of expressing your feelings; especially when done constantly. Those consistent hugs you give out may be saying more than you think.
Pick Up Playa
Let’s be real. Pick-up lines can go one of two ways. They can either get an awwwww or an ughhhhh. Either way, even the super cringy can make you swoon. If you use pick up lines, you are basically SCREAMING your level of interest. The following lines speak for themselves:
- “Are you French? Because Eiffel for you.”
- “I thought happiness began with an H, so why does mine start with U?”
- “Life without you is like a broken pencil, pointless.”
- “Something’s wrong with my eyes because I can’t take them off of you.”
- “If you were words on a page, you’d be fine print.”
- “I’m no photographer, but I can picture us together.”
This flirt form has been around foreva and seems to be here to stay.
The Social Stalk
Snap, IG, TikTok, they all matter in the flirt world. A simple add-on Snap can make someone squeal. That one swipe-up changes everything. Literally. EVERYTHING! Being the first to share, comment, or even like a post can be seen as a flirty gesture. Take it too far, and you might seem like a stalker.
ARE YOU A FLIRT?
Can you relate to at least 4 out of 6 of these? If you said yes, then guess what… you are a flirt! Flirting to spark interest, or just because you think it’s fun, will more often than not get a reaction. Hopefully it’s the reaction you want. Happy flirting!
