Holiday Flirting: Making It Count

By Josie Brown

Every mistletoe kiss begins with this ultimate fantasy:

Your eyes meet across a crowded room, and it’s love at first sight…..

Here’s the reality check: Slim. To. None.

So, how do assure you’ll attract Mr. Right when you see him? Just follow these tips:

Make eye contact.
It’s true: the eyes are the window to the soul. It’s a two-way door, so get (and let him) in there.

This is the best body language you can give him. It says “Talk to me.”

Start with a great line.
Make sure it’s relates to what you think will entice him. Start with a compliment.

Ask questions...
Men love to talk—if you’ll let them. Trust me, you’ll learn a lot (about him).

And listen.
Your ear is the most sensual part of your body…when it’s open to what he has to say.
