When we think of flirting, often we imagine it between two people who haven’t coupled off yet. At the very least flirting only takes place at the beginning of a relationship, right? But you should also know how to flirt with your boyfriend.
You flirt with someone to say you’re available and interested in them. That little hint of what’s to come, that gleam in your eye, those suggestive comments—they all stop when you actually bagged your man. But knowing how to flirt with your boyfriend is a way to keep the fun alive after the initial spark fades.

While it’s great to feel comfortable with your other half, and also important for your partner to really get to know you. But if you stop flirting altogether and expose too much, your relationship quickly takes a turn for the worse.
Think about it, what’s the main difference between being in a relationship and being just good friends? A relationship is an attraction to someone, about great sex, as well as getting to know one another on a deep and intimate level.
Keeping things flirty instead of letting that side of things die means you always have this sense of attraction and playfulness between you, which keeps the spark alive, and, dare we say it, the sex more interesting *and frequent too*!

If you succeed in keeping things flirtatious you likely have more fun, go on more dates, feel more connected, and generally experience a more fulfilling and satisfying relationship.
Of course, this is all well and good, but if you’ve been in a relationship for a while, it might be difficult to regain that flirtatious side back.
At first, you might feel silly and awkward, but it is worth pursuing as the benefits of flirting with your boyfriend far outweigh feeling a little silly for the first few minutes that you try it.

It’s great when you get to that point where you can feel totally comfortable and yourself around a guy—we all want that. But there is a difference between feeling as though you can be yourself, and leaving the bathroom door open and continuing to talk to your boyfriend when on the toilet.
Try to retain a sense of mystery and dignity. Keep some things just for you. This helps keep that spark alive, and that flirtatiousness comes a lot easier to you too. [Read: How to be mysterious and leave everyone smitten and craving for more]
We are often told that only women love surprises, but men like them too. Plan an awesome surprise that you know he will just love, and this is sure to make him know how much you care and bring a little romance back into your lives.
Be sure to make it something that he really likes. It could be tickets to his favorite sports team or to see his favorite band. Or just buy him the hammer he’s been wanting to get. Whatever makes him happy. It lets him know that you have been thinking about things that are important to him.
If you aren’t sure how to flirt with your boyfriend face to face why not try to give a flirty text message?

Flirting doesn’t always need to be suggestive, sexy, and demure. Flirting should be fun too. Making one another laugh really brings a flirty element back into a relationship, so make sure you do lots of fun, silly things together.
Or, if you want to flirt and be funny with your boyfriend by text, you can find funny memes to send him. Make sure it’s something he will get – sometimes people have different senses of humor. Or text him a joke you just heard. Either way, he’ll think you are hilarious and find it sexy.
Remember, guys like compliments too – they have feelings just like girls do. It always makes people feel good to hear that someone else thinks that they are attractive, funny, smart, or whatever else you think of them. Compliments are a great way to flirt with your boyfriend.
Tell him he looks nice and let him know how attractive you find him. This boosts his confidence. And when he feels confident, he will be much more ready to have “sexy time” with you. [Read: 30 compliments for guys they’ll never ever forget]
Sometimes actions speak louder than words. Our nonverbal communication and body language will definitely tell him that you are thinking some naughty thoughts about him.

Going out for a couple of drinks or sharing a bottle of wine helps loosen both of you up. Plus, it’s romantic to share some wine. You could even make dinner and light some candles to set the mood.

Make sure you make proper time for one another. It’s hard to flirt if you just spend your evenings together staring mindlessly at the TV. Sure, life gets routine – that’s just the reality we live in. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t mix things up and go on regular dates.
Going on an interesting date helps make flirting feel more natural. It could be something unique like zip-lining or something more romantic like a wine bar or restaurant.
Regardless of where you go, make sure that you touch him and look into his eyes so he knows you’re flirting with him.
Make sure you pay attention to him and listen to what he is saying. We know that girls like it when guys listen to them and focus on what they’re saying. But again, men are people too. They have thoughts and want to have you hear them.
