5 Tricks to Feel Your Flirtiest
The holiday season is the BEST time of year to meet people! There is so much social activity that it is almost impossible not to meet someone, or at least meet someone that knows someone else to introduce you to. You will never find as many people out and about, in the mood to socialize, and having fun than during the holidays.
Say Yes - To Everything!
This is the time to get out there. The holidays are filled with parties, happy hours, and people out looking to spread some holiday cheer. Make a promise to say yes to every invitation you receive - you never know who you could meet! Check out Meetup.com for groups in your area to find groups of like-interested people having a little extra holiday fun. Also, singles events are plentifulduring the holidays - try out a speed dating event or mixer, you never know!ISTOCKPHOTO
Get Your Flirt On!
Take that reinvigorated confidence and fun mentality to get flirty! Take chances you normally wouldn't and break the ice with anyone that catches your eye at that party. You can literally flirt with everyone, platonically! Flirtation isn't always about the seduction, but is really about connecting on a human level. However, when it comes to seductive flirting - never flirt with your boss! Don't let that extra martini at the office holiday party go to your head where you suddenly think its ok to tell your boss how hot you think he is.
Office Party Flirting
It is ok to let your hair down (a little) at the office party, but toe the line. If two people at an office party are unattached and attracted, its ok to flirt, but there are a couple rules 1) No PDA (no kissing, excessive touching, or inappropriate conversation that others can hear) and 2) Know what you are getting into. Office relationships are tough, but office hookups can be even more awkward. Think before you act, and watch those cocktails!
Don't Drink and Flirt
Ok, that's not realistic, but definitely don't drink too much and flirt. There is an entire section on this in my book, Flirt Fearlessly, because drunken flirting can lead to disaster. Stay in control, and try to limit yourself to 1 drink per hour as a general rule. Keep it in check The holidays are full of free-flowing libations, but if you aren't home with your siblings and parents, don't overdo it on the eggnog.
There is an energy that exists over the holidays season and it is almost electric! Embrace that energy to get in your best flirting mentality ever. Flirting and dating with confidence is hotter than any little black dress, and having that confidence comes from within. If you are enjoying the holidays, embracing the time you have with friends and family, and loving life - your confidence will soar! (So will your dating life - promise!)
