Flirting is an art that transcends all matter of things like language barriers, social standing, and sexuality. If you’re a gay man who is on a mission to score a date what you need is a The Gay Man’s Guide to Flirting. There’s no need for cheesy gay chat up lines if you’ve got your flirting game down. Read on for some top tips on reeling the ma of your dreams in.
Make contact. The first step to successful flirting is to make contact with your target. That doesn’t mean running over and grabbing his bum cheeks the moment his back is turned. It’s more about catching his eye and giving him a dazzling smile. Just enough to let him know that you’ve noticed him and got him in your sights.
The next step is to let him know that the first round of eye contact wasn’t accidental. Glance at him often but not so often that he’s worried that he’s got something on his face. Hopefully if he’s interested, he’ll return your smile. If, on the other hand, he positions himself behind his friend to stop you staring it’s fair to say that he’s not interested.
Playing goggle-eye all night is never going to get you a date. Sooner or later one of you is going to have to make a move; it might as well be you. Try to get to the bar at the same time as him, pass him on the way to the loo, or just saunter over and say hi. Whatever works for you.
Charm him with your best lines and sweetest smiles. Remember that wit is the sexiest form of humour, and negativity is a passion killer. Keep things light hearted and fun if you want to flirt your way to a date with your gay prince charming.
Play it cool in your approach. Dropping at someone feet and lamenting about how buff and beautiful they are is not, I repeat, not cool. How you approach your Adonis depends on your own style. Can I buy you a drink? Is an age old classic that both breaks the ice and lets you know where you stand.
Go in for the kill and then follow up. If you’re out and about there might be a chance to spend some together immediately if you hit it off. Otherwise, ask if he’d like to go out with you another time and take his number.
Don’t be a fool when it comes to calling. If you’ve got this far and got hold of his number don’t waste it. Give it a couple of days, or wait until you’re going to something you think he’ll enjoy and invite him along. If you play your card right the rest of the love story will write itself.
