Flirting with your partner is one of the best ways to keep your relationship new and romantic.
Flirting with the man you love shouldn’t stop at all. If you keep things flirtatious, you are both likely to find your relationship more fulfilling, no matter whether it’s been a month or several decades!
Here are some great tips on flirting with your partner:
1. Close the door when you’re getting ready for a date
Putting a (temporary) barrier between the two of you bolsters his surprise and delight when you appear gorgeously dressed and smiling.
2. Surprise him
It may be as simple as buying tickets to a movie he wants to see or a pint of his favorite ice cream. Little surprises along the way brighten his life and break up the usual routine.
3. Whisper to him
It doesn’t need to be anything eloquent; just leaning in and saying something for his ears only creates a sphere of intimacy and can help bring you out of routine conversations. It can be a simple “I love you,” a compliment, or a question you were going to ask him anyway, like, “Want to go for a walk with me?”
When your boyfriend is talking, stop doing other things and give him your full attention. The world is full of distraction, from our own inner preoccupations to the vibration of our mobile phones, but try to put these aside and really listen. Chances are your boyfriend will feel much closer to you if he knows he can confide in you.
5. Write him a letter
Expressing your feelings every so often might just take his breath away. Leave a note on the fridge (“Bon appetit! I love you!”), slip a hand-written card into his backpack or briefcase, or, if you’re digitally inclined, post an e-card on his Facebook wall.
6. Angle yourself towards him
When you are sitting next to your guy, angle your body toward his: make him know that you are not afraid to get close to him, and that you want to talk to him.
7. Maintain eye contact a bit longer
Your eyes probably meet plenty over the course of a day or a date. Next time, when you’re in a relaxed situation (eating dinner, talking casually), try consciously holding his gaze for a few moments longer than normal. Eye contact taps into one of the most basic ways that humans communicate and connect.
8. Use your magic touch
Touch sparks a chemical reaction that boosts desire. That’s just one reason why you should hold his hand, touch his shoulder when you laugh, kiss him welcome and goodbye, and snuggle close to him when you are watching TV. This is a great way of flirting with him.
Inner confidence is a remarkably attractive attribute to flirt with your partner. Confidence means that you are aware of yourself and comfortable with yourself, embodying your positive traits without flaunting them.
10. When all else fails, laugh together
Your attempts to introduce something new might elicit a laugh. Laughing along with him keeps things playful and reinforces the bonds that keep you together.
