    Smile, smile, smile.

    Keep your body language open and inviting: make eye contact, lightly touch the person’s hand or arm when telling a story, toss your head back when you laugh.

    Initiate stimulating conversation. At a loss for words? Ask open-ended questions about the flirtee’s job, hometown, family, recent movies seen, or thoughts about a painting on the wall.

    Open up about yourself, giving someone even more reason to like you. But don’t go on and on – the goal is to engage and intrigue, not bore.
