Trying to flirt with a co-worker can be tricky business sometimes but it’s not impossible to show your work colleague that you fancy them without being creepy about it. Just keep in mind that sometimes body language can say more than words and it’s also a lot more subtle, especially if you are trying to get your crush’s attention. You can send them the right signals without looking desperate or inappropriate. Also, eye contact flirting is one of the easiest and safest ways to get the message across, and it's exciting, simple and instinctive. It’s also an easy way to know if someone is interested in knowing you better, without having to make the first move. Here are 7 appropriate and non-creepy ways to flirt with a coworker that can help you gauge your work colleague’s interest in you:
1. Exchange a Fleeting Glimpse
One of the most appropriate ways to flirt with a co-worker without looking like a stalker is by exchanging a fleeting glimpse with them every now and then. They will notice you back and if they are interested they will smile or even ask you to go and have a drink with them after work.
2. Play with Your Hair
Fiddling with your hair is just like an instant flirt message that you can send to your crush, even if they work in the same office as you do. So, no matter if your hair is short or long, when you talk to that work colleague that you fancy, try to play with your hair while looking at them, smile and be friendly because this way, you will catch their attention.
3. Make Sure You Appear Approachable
If you want your work crush to notice you, then make sure you always seem friendly and approachable. Be sure to face forward when your crush is nearby and don’t keep your arms crossed because this way, they will feel less intimidated to start a conversation with you.
4. Make Them Curious about You
If you haven’t worked up the courage to talk to them yet, you could try talking about those cool things that you did with other work colleagues, but make sure that they can hear you. Let them know what a wonderful and interesting person you are. If you are not living an interesting life, then start doing more fun things, take up a new hobby, exercise or meet some new people, since this will help you feel happier and it will also boost your confidence.
5. Talk to Them
If you like someone from your office, just talk to them but make sure you don’t sound creepy. Be open and friendly, ask them about their day or how their weekend was and tell them more about you and about the fun things you did. If they are interested, they will want to know more and they might even ask you out on a date.
6. Mind Your Posture
Always stand up straight, not only when your crush is nearby. Just push your shoulders back and your chest out because this way, you will seem more confident and people tend to find confidence very attractive.
Smile more often when you are at work, especially when you see the person that you have a crush on. You will definitely catch their attention with your beautiful smile, you will seem more friendly and approachable and you might even encourage them to make the first move and ask you out for a drink so they’ll get to know you better.
