Ever stop to define flirting? Flirting can at times get a bad rep, but truly flirting is simply about connecting intentionally, memorably, and playfully in a unique way, generally used to attract/exchange romantic interest. Whether you’re dating, seeking, or already in a relationship, flirting is an intentional expression of interest and can spice up a connection you may already have! If you’ve been to any of my workshops, you know that they center around a theme of intentionality. You attract what you create. Flirting involves “spoken or written communication and body language by one person to another either to suggest interest in a deeper relationship, or if done playfully, for amusement!” Own the moment! Watch the videos below for some how-tos on flirting.
If you’re a local to Arizona, join us for Flirting with Flavor May 22! I’m Elicia, your host for Flirting with Flavor and author of the book, Don’t Be A Stranger: Creating Connections & Memorable First Impressions in Everyday Life! This event will be a singles event where I’ll present tips and ice-breakers inspired by my book to help bring to life how easy it can be to flirt and connect! Games will be introduced along with French Dinner Courses + Wine Pairings. Register to join us:
Get a headstart on how best to present yourself memorably by grabbing a copy of my book Don’t Be A Stranger in advance. You may order it from your favorite bookseller or on Amazon. Perhaps you may want to wear a certain color or accessory to ‘pop.’ Perhaps you’ll want to practice smiling in front of the mirror. Oh, and it’s not JUST about being memorable, but about being remembered favorably.
Matthew Hussey is one of my favorite dating coaches. He is world-renowned in the arena of dating focused largely on women, HOWEVER (which is a word I seldom use, but I do so here for effect), his tips are HIGHLY relevant for men too! Simply replace “he” with “she” or vice versa, as appropriate. When I work with male clients on dating/relationships, I suggest they read his books because so much of what he offers women applies to the psychology of men as well! Take a look below. I’ve noted which chapters of my book apply for each video! Have fun with the material! I can’t wait to connect with you at Flirting With Flavor in just a few weeks!
