Darrell and Lory met at a self-serve car wash. His Volkswagen
Beetle was in line ahead of her. When he started taking out
his floor mats and hung them on the wall hooks, he saw that
the cute girl in the car behind him couldn't take her eyes
"I thought at first it was just one of those eye contact
moments," he said, blushingly. "However, every
time I turned, I saw her smiling at me while she was sitting
in her car. When I was done I walked right up to her and
asked for her number."
Lory sent signals that she was ready to be flirted with and
Darrell took her up on them. He also washed her car, too.
The tip here is be on the lookout for great flirting opportunities
in the most mundane of places such as a car wash.
Jeremy and Ellen of Long Island,
New York ran into each other, literally, while out jogging early in
the morning before work. Jeremy said he soon began to notice
that their paths were becoming closer and closer during the
past few weeks.
"I would flirt with her by grinning as I ran by her and
she would smile in return," Jeremy said. "Then one
day, I was coming around a corner not paying attention and we
slammed right into each other. It was the best accident that
every happened to me."
"I was actually looking across the street for him,"
she said, suppressing giggles, "because that was where
he would usually be running... however, for some reason, he
wanted to run on my side of the block. I turned and next thing
you know I am in his arms and we are covered in oranges from
the fruit stand we demolished."
They both agree that any time one is out doing their past time,
excellent flirting opportunities abound to meet like-minded
spirits looking for the same thing. Now they plan their runs
Roger, from Chicago, IL, and
Naomi, from Erie, PA, found each other volunteering for hurricane
relief efforts in Louisiana in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
He would flirt with her by leaving inspirational messages
on her work assignment folders to keep her going.
The lesson here is that volunteer activities are a gold mine
for great flirting opportunities. This should not be lost when
your altruistic yearnings to help others beckon.
As such, you are guaranteed to find somebody who cares about
the same things you do. So volunteer for something you like.
Be on the look out for like-minded flirts.
Larry and Cheryl from Myrtle Beach, SC, knew each other from
years of spotting each other on vacation as both had time-shares
next to each other's family. Now both are divorcees, and they
recently found themselves alone on vacation. Larry initiated
some serious flirting.
"He was such a goof," Cheryl mused to Flirting.com.
"He would come over to me as I was lying out and ask me
if I had seen his beach ball. Then he would flex his muscles
as if he was a steroid freak while he was describing his lost
ball. Shamefully, I bought this act hook line and sinker."
Larry laughed. "I needed to find a way to approach her
that wouldn't seem so obvious... I could not think of any other
way, so I just thought I would be corny as possible. It worked."
Cheryl was highly approachable; she was just waiting for Larry
to take the first step. Larry did and now they can look for
his beach ball together.
Rico and Maria from East Los
Angeles, CA, both grew up in the same neighborhood. Unlike many
of their friends, however, both were serious about going to
college. They believe that education is the key to success and
they discovered this common ground as they flirted with each
other for months prior to graduating high school.
"Maria was incredibly hard to approach and my flirting
seemed to be getting nowhere... I would always approach her
in the lunch room and ask her about her homework and stuff,"
Rico said, "little did I know, she was interested in me
because I was persistent. Then she found out that I wanted to
go to college, and we have been there for each other ever since.
We support each other."
What worked for Rico was his willingness to persevere. What
worked for Maria was her receptiveness to his flirting, which
allowed her to see him for the man he wants to become.
Gretchen and Tony met at an outdoor street
fair in New York City. Tony found Gretchen at the
ring toss booth where she was desperately trying to win a stuffed
animal for her niece. Tony, who had just come down to check
out the fun, decided to help her win a prize. As
he was leaning forward getting ready to toss the ring, she placed
her hand on his shoulder. When this happened, Tony knew
he was in.
Carnivals, celebrations and any festive environments
create little social pockets where the flirting rules are loosened.
You can let you hair down so speak and put your hand on a stranger's
shoulder, which otherwise might not seem appropriate in public
places. Take advantage of such loose flirting rules and
win a stuffed animal along with her heart.
Steve and Mel met on a singles cruise. Steve thought
Mel was out of his league because she was so drop-dead gorgeous.
Plus, Steve had very limiting beliefs about how good looking
he was, which is why he thought there was no way he could flirt
with this beauty. Luckily, he learned to overcome his
insecurity and flirt anyway.
"I trained myself to remember it was not my looks that
were holding me back," he said, "but it was my beliefs
about my looks.... This thought gave me the courage to
Most obstacles to flirting are 90-percent mental. A certain
lack of confidence can undermine the best attempts at flirting.
Such fears are usually not rooted in reality. So if you find
yourself suffering such negative thinking, ask yourself if your
negative thoughts honestly reflect reality. Like Steve
and Mel, you will find they often don't.
Toby, a drummer in the band, Cheesecake from Susan,
based in Saginaw, Michigan, hit the mother load when he insisted on
flirting with Lori, a bisexual vocalist who helped her partner,
Susan, with her songs and, we can only presume, her cheesecake.
He not only began dating Lori, but Susan, too.
"I won't say it is anything serious," Lori told us,
"but, Toby is really cool and a funny flirt. He makes Susan
and I feel very comfortable about who we are and that is what
we love about him."
Toby is living proof that some guys can have their cake - at
least cheesecake - and eat it, too. Sometimes flirting is about
letting that person (or persons) know you are there to listen.
