For some reason, people think being a flirt is bad, but there are so many good reasons to flirt. I personally love flirting, and while some people may judge me for that, I don’t really care. I think it is a fun and carefree way to interact with people. So despite what popular belief says, here are my top reasons to flirt.
1. Confidence Boost
Among the many reasons to flirt, my top one is that overwhelming confidence boost you get when flirting with a cute new guy at a party. There is nothing better than feeling like you are on top of the world while talking to a cute guy. Even if you are not attracted to the guy you are talking to, knowing that he is responding to your flirting is a major boost of the ego. And when you are more confident, guys will be even more receptive to your flirting, which creates a wonderful cycle of confidence.
2. Makes You More Outgoing
If you are used to going up to a guy and striking up a conversation, you will become more outgoing and comfortable talking to new people. Going up and talking to a new person will become second nature to you. You will have no problem being around people you don’t know, and you will always have something to say to a stranger.
3. It Gives You a Rush
When you are flirting, there are so many things that can happen. You can be asked to dance, be asked out on a date, or maybe just make a new friend. A great reason to flirt is because you don’t know the outcome of the conversation. When you flirt, you have to react to what the other person says, which can bring you a fun new rush of excitement and keep you on your toes.
4. There is No Commitment
Just because you flirt doesn’t mean you have to date the guy. One of the best reasons to flirt is because there is no commitment involved. You can be flirting with a guy all night, maybe even dance with him. But that also might be the last time you see him. There is nothing wrong with a fun night of flirting with a stranger and then forgetting he ever existed. It’s just harmless flirting.
5. It Helps You Take Risks
Going along with the rush that flirting gives you, going up and talking to a new stranger will help you get used to taking risks. You might get shut down when flirting, but so what? When you are used to flirting, you will be more open to taking risks and dealing with the outcomes.
6. It’s a Conversation Starter
If you are looking to talk to the cute guy over at that bar but don’t know what to say, try flirting. Go up and compliment him. When you are confident in your flirting, you will feel more confident talking to a stranger. When in doubt, flirt it out.
7. It’s Fun
My favorite reason to flirt is because it’s fun. It makes me feel carefree and outgoing. I love the way flirting with guys makes me feel. No matter what situation I am in, harmless flirting never seems to be out of the question. If you enjoy flirting, go ahead and do it. There is no harm in it.
