Technology has infiltrated pretty much every aspect of our lives, including human interaction. No longer must you call your crush’s house phone and awkwardly ask his mother if he’s around (thank goodness). Now you can just send a text directly to his cell phone – and with emojis and picture messaging, even words aren’t necessary. In fact, texts aren’t even necessary anymore. Since Snapchat has been around, it’s become easier, faster, and more fun to send quick picture messages with short bits of text.
While the days of hand written love letters may seem lost, it’s possible to use this technology to your advantage. Snapchat can be a fun and playful way to get your flirt on – in some cases, even better than texting and talking in person. It is possible to make a lasting impression even when photos only last a few seconds. Here are 10 tips on how to really flirt through Snapchat:
1. Impress him with your culinary achievements.
Snap a pic of that delicious new Pinterest recipe you made. Cooking together can be a future date idea, and let’s face it: everyone loves food.
2. Don’t send selfies from your bathroom.
No one wants to see the toilet in the background of a photo, even for a few seconds.
3. Use lots of emojis.
What’s more playful than the winky face?
4. Maintain a little mystery.
Send the photo of your feet in the sand, but maybe hold off on the full blown bikini shot. It’s fun to tease when flirting sometimes.
5. Use all the puppy pictures.
Who doesn’t love cute animals? This is an easy way to start a convo.
6. Make him or her feel special.
Send your crush snaps that you don’t post in your Story, so they knows they’re being specifically chosen.
7. Keep it under 10 seconds.
If a Snap is a full 10 seconds, it should probably be an Instagram. Half the fun is the “now you see it, now you don’t.”
8. Respond to the Snaps they sends you.
Who says you have to play hard-to-get?
9. Keep it PG.
Don’t forget that it is possible to take a screenshot of a Snapchat. Plus, you never know when your crush is sitting next to a friend while opening your picture.
10. Share your favorite activities.
Showing off your hobbies and the cool places you go is way more interesting than just 1000 selfies (even though you’re beautiful).
