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 in bed.

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, the better!

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

CENTERHIS ATTENTION.
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 closer.

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?"

STICK OH-SO-CLOSE.
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."
