This weekend, I feel like I took some good small risks.I had a dinner party and invited a mysterious guest — a person I've only met recently, although we had something of an instant connection.That said, don’t use a compliment as an opening line – it may make your intentions questionable and you don’t want to give off the wrong impression.Instead, introduce a compliment once you’ve already established a connection with someone.
Seltzer advises, ’The more you come from a place of authenticity to start a conversation, the better off you are.
Another risk: giving him a spontaneous hug at a certain point in the evening…and not pulling away a few times when our knees touched during the meal.
Here are my guidelines for how anyone — even the shy — can take more flirtatious risks:1.
It's always a good idea to let your date speak about themselves – there’s nothing better than talking about yourself to someone who is interested and engaging.
It may seem like a small gesture but actually it goes a very long way.
