Five Main Flirting Styles

Physical flirting

If you are the type of a guy who his body does all the work when you are flirting then this is your style. You don’t have to say a word to the person you are crushing on so that he/she notices you are interested in him/her. All you need is to use your body language and a small physical touch and your crush will notice your sexual interest. If when you are flirting you usually love holding hands or touching the other person’s face, leg or even holding her waist, then physical flirting is your style. When a person who uses this style sees a person he/she likes, the first instinct is to walk towards the person and touch even if it’s just touching the hand. When alone in a room with the person he/she likes, instead of complimenting or saying anything, he will place his/her hand on the thighs, hands, shoulders, or knee to express his/her sexual interests. This is a great flirting style if the person you want to flirt with likes you too, but if that is not the case then it can turn out to be very annoying. The research revealed that people who use this style end up in relationships with more physical chemistry.
