Without it, flirting is impossible. The radiance and warmth a smile emanates sets the stage for a great flirtatious encounter. Smiling is one of the most effective ingredients in your flirting repertoire. It makes you more approachable and attractive. It lights up your face. It truly changes your appearance. Smiling draws people in and makes them feel welcome. People who frown, grimace, or appear depressed or angry at the world turn people off. A genuine smile says, “I like you, I accept you, I will not hurt you, and yes, I want to meet you.” Studies have shown that when asked who they find most attractive, both men and women select pictures of smiling people. It is not about attractiveness but approachability; the more approachable you are, the greater your chances will be of connecting with a romantic partner. Imagine yourself at a party, café, or bar. In these situations, you may either want to get noticed, find someone you would like to meet, or both. Smiling, the perfect avenue to facilitate these goals, makes the approach so much easier (for both parties) and removes some of the situational anxiety. Men see a woman’s smile as an immediate invitation to approach her without the fear of rejection. Women see a man’s smile as a signal that he wants her to approach him. The Right Way To Smile for Best Results The way you smile sends a powerful message. A fast smile that quickly drops back to no smile communicates insincerity. Your smile should seem natural, relaxed, and genuine. A smile is the universal signal for friendliness and should reflect that. If smiling makes you self-conscious, pay attention to your reaction when a stranger smiles at you. Do you feel uncomfortable or like the most important person on the planet? Practice Makes (a Smile) Perfect If smiling at people feels unnatural or you want to improve your smiling game, practice smiling at people during everyday encounters.

This activity puts you more at ease smiling at strangers so it becomes second nature. Remember, there are no strings attached. You do not have to start a conversation; just smile. Practice this technique five times a day for two weeks. The more you do it, the easier it becomes. Eight Reasons to Smile Why should you smile?
