Pucker UpYou've heard about girls plumping and pursing their lips to get attention? Throw a pair of wax lips candies in your purse and pop them in before engaging in any flirty conversation. Your crush will be spellbound by your flirty pout. Source: Shutterstock.com
Cast Your GazeBatting your eyelashes is a great way to flirt. Leave your glasses and contacts at home. That seductive look as you squint and blink to try and see your crush's face two feet in front of you will be irresistible. Source: Shutterstock.com
Be Loud And ClearYou want to make sure your crush hears all the funny and charming things you're going to say when you flirt. Make it as easy as possible by amplifying it with your own handheld megaphone. Source: Shutterstock.com
Make Your Like PublicTake a picture across the room with your phone, upload it your Facebook and like it. Walk over and show him that you already “like” him. It's Facebook official! He’ll be impressed by how you don't fear commitment, not to mention your quick technology skills. Source: Shutterstock.com
Show, Don't TellBring some snacks over to your crush to serve with a great pick-up line: “Hey just so you know, I think you’re really hot…. Even hotter than the twelve jalapenos I just slipped into that dip.” As he suddenly gets the hit of hot peppers, your crush really get a sense of how just how hot you think that is. That’s pretty special. Source: Shutterstock.com
Power of PoetryRemember all those Shakespeare love poems from English class? Take a cue from the Bard and conduct all your conversations in rhyming couplets. Your crush will be swept away by your romantic poetry. What rhymes with "That's cool your favorite color is orange?" Source: Shutterstock.com
Be Scent-sationalA signature scent is important to leave a lasting impression when you get in close to your flirting target. You want to make sure you're unforgettable so skip the regular perfume that the other girls may be wearing and grab one of those car air fresheners to wear around your neck. Bonus points: it's basically cool jewelry! Source: Shutterstock.com
Twirl It UpOne of the oldest flirting trick is the hair twirl. Make it super obvious by chopping off most of your hair, but leaving one long lock the regular length that you can keep twirling and twisting all night. With basically no other hair on your head, nothing else will distract your crush from the twirl. An added bubble gum twirl from your mouth is equally as alluring. Source: Shutterstock.com
Give Obvious SignsYou want to make sure that your crush knows those "accidental" hand grazes are actually totally intentional flirting. Paint your hands (it can even match your outfit if you like!) so your crush doesn't mistakenly think your hands touching it was a figment of the imagination. Oh no, you did try to hold hands already.

Continue The ConversationAs you're walking away, slip him a napkin with your phone number written on it. But just in case something happens to it, also include your home phone, your email address, your Twitter profile, your YouTube user name, your Tumblr handle, your Facebook URL, and a flirty note that reads "Now you have no excuse for not to getting in touch with me!!!! MWAHAHA!!!!!" Source: Shutterstock.com
