How to Flirt With a Guy (Yours!)
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 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?"
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."
When You Need a Hallmark Moment
JUST REPEAT IT.
When he comes home from work, plant one on him. Then, five minutes later, plant one on him again. Give him a soul-squeezing hug on a lazy Sunday morning. Minutes later, give him another just like it. He'll love the extra attention.
PENCIL IN SOME PLAYTIME.
Don't get too bogged down with the daily grind; flirt by letting him know that "us time" is your top priority. On the family calendar that's posted prominently in your kitchen, schedule some one-on-one time with him--then make sure he checks the schedule. Write: "You and me. Two hours alone-- you say when and where."
