International Flirting Week (13-19 February) is in full swing and we're celebrating with a whole host of flirting statistics, tips and advice from Zoosk.co.uk and flirting expert and social anthropologist, Jean Smith.
According to the latest research, it isn't cheesy chat-up lines that turn women off but invasions of their personal space. We've all been there, someone stands right behind you on the dance floor and tries to grind up against you! So. Not. Cool.
Touch is a powerful sign of flirting, but only if you get it right. Here's what you need to know...
Flirting tip of the day: Touchy Feely
As a general rule, the shoulders and higher up on the arms are considered 'safe areas', whereas touching his hands will be subconsciously seen as a more intimate gesture. A light tap on the hand, or brushing his hand as you're passing a drink could be the perfect 'I fancy you' sign for you to try.
Body language expert and Invisalign ambassador, Judi James, believes that small gestures can give-away how your date is feeling. For example if they pull your hand into their body, it shows signs of sexual animal type attraction reflecting an interest in you on all levels. However, if you catch a juddering leg or tapping towards the end of the evening, it may be a sign of impatience and could mean they are ready to grab a taxi home.
