Learning how to flirt online is a skill every man needs in the digital age. Here are some basic tips to help you level up your online game.
Make a joke about her profile
One way that you can start out learning how to flirt online is making a playful joke about something in her profile. This is a good way for the two of you to start getting to know each other in a relaxed fashion. You want to start out with a playful reference to something in her profile is to show her that you’ve read it and that you paid attention to it. What’s more, making a playful reference to something on her profile can let her know that the two of you have common interests.
Using emoticons is a great way of showing you’re playful and fun. It’s how you keep things light, how you let her know that you’re kidding around. Go one step further and get a solid bench of emojis that you like to use. You don’t have to overdo it here: Just a couple or a few thrown in here and there is going to go a long way toward communicating the playful mood you want to cultivate when you’re flirting with a girl online.
Move on to be challenging
Just being funny and having things in common with her isn’t going to keep you out of the friend zone, however. Try flirting with her in ways that say “You have to impress me.” That you’re not going to go for just any pretty face. This communicates confidence while also creating sexual tension between the two of you. It also sets you apart — how many men do you think are consciously pushing back a little?
Move the conversation from the dating website to social media
You need to move the conversation from the dating site to social media. Her social network profile is going to tell you a lot more about who she really is than self-reported data on a dating site. You can see what kinds of things she posts, what kind of people she’s friends with and whether or not she, on average, is displaying high-value behaviors or low-value behaviors. These are all things that are a lot harder to suss out when you’re dealing with people on a dating site where they’re generally putting their “best foot forward.”
Seal the date in Skype
The whole point of online dating and flirting is to get a date and see each other in real life. Skype is a great way to make it possible for international couples. You generally just want to play, flirt and banter when you’re online, saving the more “meaty” conversations for when the two of you are together. This is because most of communication isn’t about the words you use — it’s equally about your body language and tone of voice.
