Top 3 Senior Dating Flirting Tips

You’ve been out of the dating game for a while and for one reason or another you need to get back into it. Flirting doesn’t come easily to most people, especially those of us who are a tad older and have been out of practice for a while. This article takes a look at a few tips that should help you find the online dates you want.

Flirting should not feel like a massive task, an obstacle or a tedious bore. The flirting you need to be doing is the type that keeps you and your prospective partner happy, entertained and (most importantly) interested. Below is a short list of tips that will help achieve success with minimal effort.

1)    Appearance

It all starts with the first time he/she sees you. You don’t need to be a fitness freak or go and have extensive plastic surgery, you just need to make yourself look as good as is easily achievable. Make sure your hair is neat (or fashionably untidy), not greasy or as if you’ve just jumped off a roller coaster. Wear clothing that looks good, but also makes you feel comfortable; being comfortable will aid your flirting more than you can imagine.

2)    Body Language

Remember to smile. A lot. This will make the other person feel comfortable that they are doing the right thing. Once the two of you are comfortable it’s time to initiate contact. Gentle movements like the touching of the hand or shoulder are a non-invasive way of saying: hey, I’m interested in you. You can also gauge how the other person sees the relationship at this point. If they move away, maybe it’s too soon for contact. Don’t be discouraged if this happens, some people take longer than others to allow that sort of intimacy.

3)    Forget about flirting for a while

By completely focusing on flirting you might over-think the process and start to become awkward. A good way to flirt is to pretend that the other person is not a romantic interest but rather a social companion. If the other person is a good match for you, you will unintentionally begin to flirt in a much more natural way, which is exactly what you want.

The bottom line of flirting is feeling comfortable with how you look and what you’re talking about. This will then manifest itself in self-confidence, which is the most attractive you there is. So, look good, smile a lot and don’t focus too much on actively flirting with your dates and you should be more successful with your online dating experience.
