How to Flirt With a Guy (Yours!)
When You Can't Get a Sitter
PLANT A GOOD-NIGHT NOTE.
Right before he puts the little darlings to sleep, stick a note inside the
storybook he's going to read. Tell him his bedtime involves popcorn and a movie
GET A LAUGH OUT OF HIM.
Completely cornball pickup lines never earthquaked any man's libido, but
they're good for cracking each other up on a cozy night in. Try, "Is that a
mirror in your pocket? 'Cause I can see myself in your pants." The cornier,
BE A TEASE.
He may think he always knows your next move, but it's good to keep him
guessing. Hit him with this: "I made plans for us for Saturday night. But
I'm only telling you that margaritas and a steamy shower are involved."
Flash a sly smile and see how long it takes before he tries to tickle the
details out of you.
When You Haven't Had Sex in (Gulp) a While
It's body language 101: If you want your man to look at something on you, touch
it. Caress your neck, fiddle with an earring, or twist a strand of your hair
between your fingers. Even if he's across the room, he'll soon be a lot
GIVE HIM A GOOD, LONG LOOK.
Checking out your man's, um, best asset is a great form of flirty flattery. Say
you're in the car together or stationed on the sofa. Let your eyes repeatedly
wander down, down, down. When he catches on, make it clear that you like what
you see with an I-can't-help-myself shrug and a smile. Reminding him that he's
got it and you want it is the ultimate compliment.
RENT SOMETHING RACY.
Saturday night, let him believe you've picked up a standard-issue blockbuster,
but instead surprise him with a movie that's a little naughtier. It doesn't
have to be that naughty, just something with plenty of steamy scenes. Remember
those ha-cha-cha moments in Unfaithful or even Wild Things?
WEAR SOMETHING LACY.
Why save your favorite lacy little things for a special occasion? Wear your
sexiest, most va-va- voom lingerie on a regular day, under your regular
clothes. Then give your guy a teasing peek so he knows it's there. You'll feel
like a total vamp, and he'll definitely want to take a closer look.
When You're Both Too Stressed to Think Straight
SAY IT SOFTLY.
Whispers work magic by making you both focus on the moment (instead of the 8
million things on your to-do lists). Lean in close and cup his ear, even if
it's just to murmur, "Want wine with dinner, baby?"
Try this: Whether you're walking the dog around the block or cooking in the
kitchen together, stay glued to his side. Sneak in some sweet touches--a pinky
squeeze, a nose nuzzle. You'll see that you don't even have to talk to say
"I love you."
