Flirting is not everyone’s cup of tea. Some proudly wear it as their badge, be it on a date or anywhere that they are. While others can barely meet the eyes of their date, let alone ‘How you doing’ them! It becomes an even bigger problem when you are born shy.
So, read on to find out the awkward, rather disastrous flirting techniques with some flirting tips and tactics a shy guy uses to flirt with their crush.
Below are 11 Disastrous Flirting techniques that may go wrong…………
1. Approaching your crush alone is like a war to win for you.
After about 73 times of failed attempts, when you send them that awkward ‘hi,’ it returns a gift to you with another 73 sleepless nights.

2. Staring in your date’s line and as soon as eye contact is made, look away.
Only repeat the process on an endless loop until your date cuts in making your tongue tied up in your throat and your armpits flooding like Bengal sorrow.

3. Gathering yourself in, into practically a foetal position of a grown-up man.
Directing your feet and hands in for maximum protection.
Or maybe in hopes the date will take pity on the poor baby and give birth to conversation herself.
4. Opening your mouth to say something nice about your date but finding yourself making fun of her weird hairstyle instead.
She will be your crush for the rest of your life dude. You ain’t getting them this way. It’s better you don’t speak at all if you end up speaking such shit.
You may think that roasting is a form of flirting. But, it’s not. So, don’t take refuge in it as a flirting technique.

5. Asking illogical questions that make no sense or have any correlation to your date or anything sane at all, just to keep the conversation going.
You know if Pikachu was here, what would it say? (By the way, the answer is… Pika Pi!) Don’t be surprised if your partner suddenly loses all their interest in you.
6. And so not even your jokes make any sense to your date ever.
They are going to observe you and your behaviour. Try to be calm and in your senses. If you ever manage to lose that, you will end up making more such senseless jokes. The result will be- no more dates with them. One of the flirting tips you must remember.

7. Trying to be smooth and inconspicuous but ending up giving the lamest compliments possible.
Do you know your eyes are out? Maybe that’s why they look so big. *True Story*

8. And being equally pathetic at receiving one yourself.
Your Date: Your shirt is nice.
You: The red one I have at home is nice.

9. But somehow being too fast forward and a smooth flirter in your virtual avatar.
“Hey, it was a great date. And a million thanks to your beautiful, dazzling smile. I needed it to keep myself awake all night so I could finish off this project.”
10. Even the comments and likes on Facebook or sending them a romantic (or sexy) song lie in your area of expertise when it comes to flirting online.
Work on it because it all starts online now-a-days, right?

11. But when there comes the time for another one-on-one date, welcome back that god-awful awkward smile.
Smiling is a safe bet. After all, it could be meant for anybody. The old lady with a stick, the baby in the stroller or the bald guy at the cash counter. So, if (even if it’s true) she thinks it was meant for her, maybe she’s too full of herself! Take this as a cue, don’t smile like a retard all the time. It’s not that flirting techniques you should be proud of.
