(WTNH) -- Flirting and communications expert Rachel DeAlto is dedicated to helping people communicate more effectively. Her expertise is available to help individuals who are single and looking for love.
The following are a few of her key tips:
Don't forget to smile and make eye contact:
- Even if you can't imagine ever making the first move, you can speak a thousand words with your eyes and smile. See someone you are interested in? Make 3 seconds of eye contact with a smile and if he is interested he will make the approach.
Grab a wingwoman:
- Drop all of your attached or married friends and grab your flirtiest and sexiest single friends possible to go out with you! You need someone who is going to help you start conversations with the cute guys out and about, not spend the night talking about mortgages and kids. You can go to brunch with them later.
Keep it light:
- If you are constantly stumped when trying to think of something to talk about, think of 2-3 light topics that you feel comfortable talking about. Whether it's an upcoming concert you are going to, a restaurant you went to, or even the weather, make sure you have something in your head to chat about.
- Have a cocktail, just one, and let your nerves relax. After that practice, practice, practice! The more often you are smiling and making conversation, the more natural it will feel!
