The science of flirting

Copulatory Gaze

Also known as eye contact, this is the most important part of flirting.

Body Language

It’s more about your actions than what you say when you flirt. Only 7 percent of what we say is attributed to how well we flirt; while 38 percent of the effectiveness is how we say it. 55 percent is attributed to the flirter’s body language.


There are three types of appropriate touching when you flirt: Friendly is the gentle nudge of a shoulder or handshake; Plausible Deniability is when you touch on the forearm or waist; and finally, Nuclear, occurs when a touch of the face happens. A quick note: just make sure the other person is comfortable with you before you touch them.

Postural Congruence

This occurs when the two people engaged in flirting unconsciously adopt each other’s postures and body language. This indicates a harmony and builds trust.


One of the best flirting techniques is to actually stop flirting. By abruptly, but politely changing the direction of the conversation, this will leave the other person wanting more.
