Lots of people flirt while online dating.
If you are trying to figure out the best way to go about flirting on online dating sites, you can do so by spending a sufficient amount of time getting to know the person that you are communicating with.
Everyone is different.
Some people can be very receptive to flirting quite early in their interaction with you and others may not be as receptive.
In order to gauge the kind of person that you are dealing with, you should take some time to communicate with this person first and get a feel for them.
Oftentimes, you will know that it is alright to flirt with them when they become very playful with you.
They may become playful by consistently making fun of you about something or becoming really giddy whenever you talk about certain topics.
These are often signs that show that this person is open to flirting.
When you start flirting with this person on an online dating site, you should be rather tame at first.
What you are doing here is trying to see how the person responds to the flirting before deciding to go any further with it.
Some people make the mistake of constantly bombarding a person with flirtation in the hopes that they get a response.
All this ends up doing is cause the person who is being flirted with to get tired of it and just stop communicating altogether.
You shouldn’t make this mistake when flirting on an online dating site.
When you flirt with this person that has already shown you the signs that they are open to it, you should do so lightly at first and see if they respond to it.
If the person responds to it, you can now proceed with more lighthearted flirting.
Be careful not to focus your entire conversation with this person on flirtation.
This is another mistake that people who flirt on online dating sites make.
Even though this person may be responding to the flirting, this doesn’t mean that flirtation is all this person wants during the conversation.
Hence, be careful not to overdo it in the beginning.
Once you have had a few exchanges of flirting during the course of the conversation, you should switch to other topics and move away from flirtation.
The next time that you communicate with this person on the online dating site, you can start flirting again at some point during the course of your conversation.
Always make sure that your flirts are responded to before you continue with them.
If the person responds to your flirting, you can flirt a little longer with them than you did in the last conversation.
However, like you did the last time, you should only have a few flirtatious exchanges with this person and then change the subject to something else.
Do not overdo the flirting.
With each conversation that you have with this person, they will become more and more comfortable with you.
Hence, over time, you will notice that the flirting will naturally just have longer stretches.
However, again, you should never allow your conversations with this person to be solely focused on flirting, even if it seems like you could go on and on with this person and they will play along.
You must always have balance in your conversations with someone on an online dating site.
This is what enables the person to get a really good sense of what you are about as a person.
If all of your conversations became all about flirting, you would be very one-sided in your persona and thereby, a lot less dynamic.
This isn’t very appealing.
Also, by being disciplined in the amount of flirting you do, you give the other person something to always look forward to.
If all of your conversations were centered around flirting, it will get old very quickly and this person may get bored and no longer look forward to your conversations.
