Flirt aids 4: The lighter
You are smoker or have at least no reservations against a smoking flirt partner? Then this classic is perfect for you. Especially in times of the smoking ban, the group of smokers in front of the restaurant or bar entrance forms a conspiratorial community of outcasts. This is how you inevitably get into conversation with each other.

Now that the summer has decided to show up in our country, the good weather offers countless flirting opportunities in the fresh air. Just pack utensils for partner sports when you go to the park or the beach. Maybe your flirting partner has a desire to play. An invitation to play badminton together seems much more harmless if you add that your best friend, who actually wanted to come to the weekly match, has unfortunately just cancelled. Or you do your stretching quite by chance at the same park bench as your jogging chosen one.
Flirt helper 6: The barkeeper
Admittedly, this trick is difficult in open-plan discos – here you can hardly expect the bar staff to know every guest, let alone their favorite drink. But in your regular pub, the bartender can be of great help to you. Not only does he know whether the pretty redhead at table seven is waiting for her husband, or that the mysterious stranger at the bar goes home with a different woman every night. He can also take on the role of mediator by strategically allocating space or, on occasion, put in a good word for you with the object of your desire. Therefore you should make it in any case by regular visits, respectful behavior and appropriate tips to the friend.
In general, of course, flirting helpers are just like pick-up lines. If the mutual sympathy is not right, also the best flirt method can unfortunately not change it. But whoever comes across as natural and nice always has better chances in any case. In this sense: Have fun flirting, dating and falling in love!
