If you’ve never tried online dating before you may be looking for a bit of Flirting Help! Even if you are used to flirting in real life, flirting online can be a little different :-)

To be a good flirt, you need to ooze confidence, without appearing over the top, or over confident. So how do you achieve that point half way between slimy and wimpy and do it online without using eye contact or body language?  All you have is a computer an internet connection and membership in an online dating site, right?

Here are 5 Tips for flirting online successfully:

Tip One: The most important thing is to Have fun!  Be light-hearted, funny and entertaining.  Make the other person want to talk to you again.  Flirting is playful, not serious.

Tip Two: Don’t be rude.  Flirting does not include being sexually explicit nor taking offence if the other person isn’t responding to you. If the other person doesn’t seem interested, take the hint and try flirting with somone else instead.  If you find that you are getting a lot of rejections, you should probably consider a different approach, but don’t be offended if someone doesn’t want to reciprocate – it happens all the time.

Tip Three: Listen…listen….listen.  Pay attention to what she says and ask appropriate questions.  Get her to open up and talk about herself.  Make her feel like she is interesting and that you are interested in her.  Works wonders!

Tip Four: Compliment the other person …and do it often and sincerely.  Nothing opens doors like making someon feel good about themself.  If someone pays you a compliment, simply say “thank you”.  Do not be self depreciating.

Tip Five: Send an email after you have finished chatting.  This ranks right up there with sending a thank you note for a gift and it is vital to successful flirting.

5 Ways to Lose a Bad Date

Ok, so you are on the date from hell and there is absolutely no way that you can last until the end. What are you going to do? Read these 7 Ways to Lose a Bad Date and be prepared if this happens to you ;-)

METHOD 1 – Be Honest

If you are a direct person, you could simply tell your date flat out that it is not working and that you are going to leave, but most people are just not wired to be that open. Society has ingrained us to be polite, no matter how unhappy it makes us, so that leaves us to do a little creative date ditching.

METHOD 2 – Phone a friend

Wait for a private moment or slip to the bathroom and call a friend. Have your friend call you as soon as possible and fake an emergency. Apologise to your date and make a quick exit. This is probably the easiest and most kind way to lost a bad date!

METHOD 3- Lose your date on the dancefloor

If you are on a bad date at a dance club, lead them to the dance floor and then allow the crowd to swallow you up. By the time Goofy VonBadDate whines and worms his way through the crowd, you will be long gone.

METHOD 4 – The psychological method

A little psychological warfare can chase off a bad date too, but proceed carefully. Look your date in the eye and announce that you think that your babies would be positively beautiful. With any luck, that little gem will have your date slipping out after having suddenly remembered some pressing engagement. If not, you may have just encouraged them a little further :-(

METHOD 5 – Make a run for it

If you were smart, and believe me, you will be after this little life lesson, you checked out the floor plan of the restaurant that you are currently being tortured in. Is there a door near the bathroom? Pop in to “freshen up” and then slip on out. Even if you have to run all the way around the building to get to your car, it is worth the effort to ditch that insufferable loser.
