Basic flirting rules are that women do the choosing, but once they have signalled their choice they sit back and let the man make the move. If you fancy someone, give them the green light by making eye contact for about three seconds. This can seem like a long time, so practise it with a friend. It can help if you say to yourself something like, ‘You are gorgeous!’ while you hold the eye contact. You can do this twice – think of the first eye contact as an orange light and the second one as a green light.
Bear in mind that men usually look at women from the feet upwards, so allow time for them to reach your face and register your green light.
Once you’ve given the green light, it’s up to the man to make the first move and open the conversation. You can make this easier for him by moving slightly away from the people you are with (do leave yourself an escape route in case it doesn’t work out!) and breaking off any conversation so that he doesn’t have to butt in.
Once you are talking, monitor his body language to see how things are going.
