One of the best ways to convey to someone that you find them physiologically appealing without directly saying it out loud is to flirt through subtle touches. Yet, it can be challenging because different types of touching communicate entirely distinct messages. Coming into contact with any part of the body that the other people considers private and touching something more intimate, like the groin or chest, could be seen as sexually suggestive rather than flirty, increase the likelihood of rejection.

Fortuitously, there are many other ways to express attention in a prospective partner without ever touching them Subtle cues that may show you’re interested in them include grinning at them, keeping eyesight contact during discussions, and playing with their locks. A light finger pasture, a run-in with them, or an unintentional brush against their legs while they are seated together are all excellent signs that you are at least somewhat interested in them.

A gentle reach on the shoulder or finger is start to feel more like more than just laid-back contact if you’re willing to take it a step further. She may become more attracted to you and want to spend more time with you with the gentle paint of your hand or a light graze of the mouth. Use only sweet, non-intrusive kinds of feel; too much pressure can rapidly turn flirtatious into full-on weirdness. If you’re confused, find out how she feels when you touch her. Countless people may claim to be at ease with it, while others might be afraid or uneasy.
