TRACEY COX'S RULES FOR FLIRTING
WATCH YOUR VOLUME CONTROL: The bigger the
personality, the more flirtatious you can be. Keep it subtle for shyer
types. Up the volume for the socially gregarious.
FORGET CHAT UP LINES: They don’t work – we’re looking, not listening in the

KEEP IT PERSONAL: Don’t say ‘You’re gorgeous’. Say, ‘You’ve got the best legs
I’ve ever seen’. Make them feel you’ve noticed them as an individual
rather than just chatting up every good-looking person you see.
KEEP IT SIMPLE: Not everyone’s good at picking up on signals. Stick to
easily read flirting signals like smiling, eye contact, standing close
