i my name is… my name is… excuse me, my name is Slim Shady Lisa. You might remember me from the original Jammy Toast and recall my posts. If you don’t then you can catch up on them over here. I have been a friend of Davey’s since about 2003. I used to have a blog on Blogger well before he started to blog and before he discovered his pesky teddy bears. He used to leave comments on my blog and before you knew it, we were chatting away on MSN – who remembers good old MSN? I invited him to write a few guest posts on my blog and we became great friends. I even travelled over to the UK in 2007 from Canada for a visit and we had a whale of a time together. Fast forward sixteen years and I now comment on his blog and he has invited me to write some guest posts for him. As the old saying goes; what goes around, comes around…
After my total lack of luck with Brad The Lumberjack I started to re-evaluate my whole approach to dating in particular and flirting in passing. I was beginning to think that perhaps my skills were getting rusty. I decided that I needed to learn the science of flirting and practice it. Either that or learn to hypnotize my victims and perfect that.
I read this article and will now step by step learn and practice these techniques.
My favourite is the ‘eyebrow-flash’, which involves raising the eyebrows very briefly – for about one-sixth of a second – it is used almost universally as a long-distance greeting signal; so this article announced. I can see it now, me all hot to trot in a bar wagging my eyebrows at ever available man in the place and my friends saying, “What the hell it the matter with you? Do you have a tick or something?”
Here’s the scenario:
Hot guy who is at roughly the same level of attractiveness as myself at 3 o’clock. Ok here we go, smile at him, a real smile with eye wrinkles and hold that eye contact for more than a second. This is going well, he held the eye contact with me for more than a second before he looked away. Then he looked straight back at me, he must be interested!
Oh no, he has his feet pointing away from me. The doubt starts to set in, he must not be interested.
Hang on though, was that an eyebrow flash? Woo hoo he really must like me!
Crap I think he knows that guy over there maybe the eyebrow flash was for him.
Me to hot guy, “Hey wanna make out?”
So, I need to brush up on my science of flirting and I would love any help I can get.
My big question for all of you out there is what are your best flirting tips and tricks?
I am going out Saturday night and if you put your tip in the comments, I promise to try it on some unsuspecting man and let you know how it went.
Ok, so it is over to you.
