If you have ever attempted the ritual of human mating that revolves around demonstrating sexual attraction to a person, but only in a non-serious manner–otherwise known as “flirting”–you’ll know that it’s hard. But, then again, everything is hard. Talking to people is hard. Having a crush is hard. Life is hard!
Flirting is particularly tough, however, because it combines all of the aforementioned, objectively difficult factors of being a human person–talking, having a crush, and life itself–into one potentially face-reddening, mortifying occasion. Sound like you? If so, we’ve got a few things for you–first of all, you need to check out some of these flirting tips. And, secondly, you’ve got to check out these tweets about flirting, talking to a crush, and everything in between, that will definitely make you feel a little better about your own flirting skills:
1. You’ve got some nice lines:
boy: hey cutie what's up
me: not the fucking bee population

2. Good moves, too:
Her: you ok?
Me: just nervous, I don't date much
Her: you're doing fine
[I go to take a drink, but It's the candle & I set my face on fire]
