You Will Need
- A positive attitude
- And confidence
Be positive. The fastest way to end flirty banter is to be Debbie Downer.
Sound confident--even if you're not. People are attracted to self-assurance.
Use humor. If witty repartee isn't your strong suit, repeat something someone else said that you found funny, or share something amusing you read in the paper.
Keep messages brief--you want to retain an aura of mystery.
Avoid baring your soul
Avoid intense, soul-baring discussions that might scare people off.
Be observant about the details in their profile, and ask follow-up questions to things they mention in messages to you. It shows you're sincerely interested--and not self-obsessed.
Dole out the compliments. Who doesn't want to hear nice things? If you saw them on a dating site, mention their impressive resume. If you met in person, gush about something they said or did. But be sincere.
Don't get discouraged
Don't get discouraged. You're not going to be compatible with everyone. Cut your losses and move on to the next hottie.
