Simply put, flirting is healthy emotionally as well as physically. The reason it has earned a bad reputation is because most people flirt with the intent of sexually attracting someone. It doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. It could be just to put a smile on someone’s face without giving them the wrong idea. The purpose should never be to lead someone on (unless you actually want to be romantically involved with them). Use it as a way to connect with people. There’s not much needed to flirt. Firstly, you should know how to do it and like many other things, it is something you can learn. Secondly, you should have a positive attitude, and the aim should be to make it contagious.

So those of you who have a strict no-flirting rule, you might feel a little (if not entirely) differently after reading the following:

1.     You become a better conversationalist

Breaking the ice with someone is the most important and the hardest part. If you do this well, everything else kind of flows effortlessly thereafter. When you’re flirting with someone, you try to come up with intelligent jokes or clever remarks, which most of the times invite a response. If the response is positive, it reassures you of your wit and encourages you to engage in and even initiate conversations with people.
