Here are some tips Number one: Touch them Much research has demonstrated that touching a person can increase their compliance to completing wide variety of requests, and this may extend to the world of flirtation. So it may be a good tip to touch the person you desire. No. Not like that. Studies have found that when a young man in a nightclub asks a woman to dance with him, his request was more likely to be followed if he touched her forearm for one or two seconds. This may be because tactile contact is associated with dominance, as later when the women were asked to complete a survey, a high score of dominance was associated with tactile contact. Number two: Smooth talk Words can do a lot when it comes to flirting. It can certainly do you good to subtly communicate your affection with the person you like. Ok, no, that would never work. Pitch and tone actually have a lot more to do with flirting than one may believe. Research from MIT suggests that men are more attracted to women that vary the tone in which they speak. Those whose voice went up and down in frequency more often received more romantic interest from men than those who spoke with a flatter tone. This study also found that women were more attracted to men who interjected when they were speaking with phrases such as "yep," "OK"and "I see." This not only suggests dominance which is an evolutionary trait women find appealing, but also understanding. Number three: Mirror body language Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? In this case you'll act as the mirror! 55% of attraction communication is made through body language, and one of the most subtle yet most effective methods of flirting with someone is to mirror their actions. This is because we unconsciously copy those we are attracted to as a sign that we are interested in what they are saying. Mirroring someone not only demonstrates that we have good communication skills but also that we're invested in their thoughts and feelings. This is also a surefire way of whether knowing someone is interested in you, as if they copy your mirroring, they just may reciprocate your feelings. Number four: Wear red. Not that red, not only an eye catching color that flatters many skin tones. Red is also a symbol of lust and sexuality, and studies have shown that when both men and women wear red, they appear more attractive to the opposite sex. This may be due to the social expectation surrounding the color. However, psychologist Adam Pazda suggests that instead our attraction to red may be a hangover from human's evolutionary past as animals, such as female baboons display patches of bright red skin to indicate they are ready to mate. However, it may be good advice to keep it subtle and classy. Number five: Eye contact Often viewed as the number one sign of attraction, eye contact is key when it comes to demonstrating your attraction towards another person. When we make eye contact with a prospective mate, we're in fact searching for evidence of their attraction to us through their physiological response of pupil dilation, and this is why staring into one another's eyes feels so intimate. Therefore, the best way to let someone know you're interested in them is to gaze into their eyes. Just make sure you're smiling and that you don't over do it. Follow these tips, we wish you luck!
