#1 Casually stare now and then. See someone you like? Casually stare at the person now and then. Soon enough, the one you like will notice you back.

#2 Exchange a fleeting glimpse. Don’t be hasty or you’ll end up looking like an annoying stalker. When the person you like catches you staring and stares back at you with curiosity, lock eyes for a second and look away immediately.

#3 Repeat the glances. Look at the person you like again. Stare at him or her, but look away immediately as soon they look back at you. Don’t linger and stare back for more than a second just yet. [Read: First glances and love at first sight]

#4 Let them know what’s on your mind. At first, the person you like may assume it’s a passing glance. But as they catch you sneaking a few glances now and then, they’d understand that you’re interested in them. Don’t stare for more than a second because you’ll kill the excitement. Instead, build the excitement.

#5 Build the excitement. Now that you’ve got the one you like looking back at you now and then to see if you’re still staring, it’s time to build the excitement. Stop staring for a couple of minutes. Wait for them to stare at you now and then.

The person you like will wonder why you aren’t staring anymore and may start to stare at you more often, to check if you’re still staring. By doing this, you’re actually making the one you like as interested as you are in building the staring game.

#6 Reverse the eye contact flirting. Notice the one you like from the corner of your eye. Don’t stare directly, but keep an eye on the person you like. Wait for that person to look at you. And just as the one you like looks at you, stare back at that person. By doing that, you’re now discreetly making it appear like they’re the one interested in looking at you, and not the other way around.

#7 Stare for a longer duration. You’ve been exchanging fleeting glances until now, but now that you’ve got the one you like excitedly waiting for you to stare back, lock eyes for more than a second before looking away. [Read: 10 tips to look sexy without trying]

#8 Smile and blush. Talk to your friends or appear busy, and stare for a second or two. And each time, look away smiling or blushing in an obvious manner. Don’t smile while staring just yet. Always smile only while looking away.

#9 Watch their response. Is this person looking at you as often as you’re looking at them? If they are, it’s working and you’re on your way to a fun evening. If the one you like isn’t reciprocating your glances no matter what you do, they’re not interested, so give up and move on. You can’t win all your eye contact flirting games.

#10 Smile while staring. Now that you’re certain that the one you like is equally interested in staring at you and exchanging stolen glances, it’s time to take the plunge. During one of your longer glances, look straight into their eyes and stretch a little smile. There’s no turning back here. If the person smiles back, you’ve struck jackpot. If the one you’re staring at looks shocked or looks away hastily, they just need a little more time to warm up.

If the smile’s worked in your favor, here’s what you need to do. If you’re the girl, give the guy an opportunity to talk to you. If you’re the guy, what are you waiting for, make a move!

    Ive fallen for a girl who is very shy. I dont know if she too likes me or not, but whenever our gazes meet both of us look away. It happens everytime . I have tried to lock eye contact but i cant. Do you think she too is into me or is it just human nature. Rmbr neither of us smile while our eyes lock or after it. If she had been laughing before , then it goes away and she appears helpless.

    Or you can just go and talk to them if they don’t look at you, because first: Not everyone’s going to look at you, regardless of whether they might find you attractive or not, and second: Because going up to them and introducing yourself is a FAR BETTER method to find out if they like you or not.
