Flirting is not as easy as it may seem, but there is no doubt it comes easy to some while some find it virtually impossible to pull off. However, this should not discourage you from making the most of it to have a good time and to entertain your date. But to make this possible, you need to find a flirting style which suits you and your personality. The real question is here is how you can go about determining what is right and what is wrong for you while determining what style works best for you? To make things easier for you, here’s a look at different flirting styles you can try:

Understand the Five Flirting Styles

The only way you can go about determining which style works best for you is to know the different styles in the first place. Once you are acquainted with the different styles and what they offer along with what you need to do in return for maximum results, you will be able to make an informed decision. The five flirting styles are as follows:

1. Physical

In no way does this style encourage you to sexually harass your date by uncomfortably touching him/her. Physical flirting is more about putting forward your sexual interests to a potential partner. This is perfect for those who wish to develop relationships quickly, and it does have a greater emotional connection and chemistry to go with it.

2. Playful

This flirting style is not effective when it comes to developing meaningful relationships. The only reason people indulge in playful flirting is to have fun and to boost their self-esteem.

3. Traditional

In this flirting style, it is all about the man taking the lead. Women are expected to maintain a passive role throughout their date. It is worth noting people who rely on traditional flirting are not only introverted but tend to know their potential partner for some time before actually making a move on them.

4. Sincere

This form of flirting is not only effective but it deals with communicating and expressing your desires and interests to develop and build lasting emotional connections. This style is highly preferred by women, and even though men do use this style, it is not as exactly as popular as it is amongst women.

5. Polite

This flirting style is about being the best you can be. It focuses on being a proper gentleman or lady, all the while being mindful of your manners.

Making an Informed Decision

Keeping the aforementioned flirting styles in mind, you will realize making a decision is not difficult. Each style has its own characteristics and pros and cons, and this allows you to determine which could work for you. Depending on the way you carry yourself and how you are around people and especially your date, you can find a style to work with. For instance, if you believe in developing meaningful and lasting relationships, you would prefer the traditional or sincere flirting style. But if you are not serious and just want to have fun, playful flirting will interest you the most.
