The Effective Flirt

Whether you are single or in a relationship, flirting is good for you. It not only improves your relationships with others, it also improves your physical and emotional health. Sexologist Jessica O’Reilly reveals all you need to know.  

Flirting boosts your self esteem
Boost in self-esteem when you receive and give compliments.

Improves your mood!
When we flirt, our pleasure receptors are activated, so even a little smile or eye contact with a crush can ward off a bad mood.

Reduces stress
A certain degree of flirting in the workplace makes for a happier and more productive work environment.


What type of flirt are you?

Polite Flirt
  • Sweet
  • Almost too polite to make a move
  • They only go 25% of the way, never fully committing
  • Start the flirt and them walk away
  • Effective online daters
Physical Flirt
  • Sexually charged flirtation
  • Use their bodies a lot – hair flicks, back arching, and more
  • They actually touch you
  • Lay the compliments on thick
  • Tend to up their partners in bars
  • Ok to flirt physically if you’ve already established a rapport; not with strangers
Playful Flirt
  • They’re just in it for themselves and are attention-seekers
  • More selfish
  • Want to enjoy the attention and indulge
  • Isn’t viewed as sincere
  • Use sexuality to get their way
Sincere Flirt
  • Use emotional connection to establish rapport
  • Shows real interest
  • Genuine
  • Listens
Traditional Flirt
  • Like gender roles (e.g. women shouldn’t be too forward, men should open doors)
Effective Flirt
  • Makes everyone around them feel good by combining all five flirting styles and thus reaps the benefits regardless of whether a relationship or sex is the goal.
