How to Flirt With a Guy (Yours!)

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."

When You're Out On the Town

ASK HIM ANYTHING.
Don't be like those couples who go to restaurants and never talk! Ask questions--lots of them-- when you're sitting down to a long, leisurely dinner together. The quirkier, the better. How about: "If I were a cocktail, what would you call me and why?" Or, "If we could travel back in time and be high school sweethearts, what would you suggest we do after dinner tonight?"

LET HIM LEAD.
You make so many decisions all day, every day. Why not let him take control of something he usually doesn't--and give yourself one less thing to think about in the process? Before a night out, step out of the shower and throw in the towel, so to speak. Let him pick out what you'll wear--skirt, top, shoes, lipstick, panties, perfume, everything. What he chooses may surprise you, and nothing's hotter than a surprise between two people who think they know everything about each other.

GIVE HIM AN EYEFUL.
Next time you're at a party with your guy, shoot him some coy, come-hither looks across a crowded room--just as if he were a sexy stranger. Catch his eye and hold it for just a beat, then look away. Glance back quickly, shyly, out of the corner of your eye. Let your eyes flicker up and down his body. He won't be able to take his eyes off you.

When a Fight Is Still On Your Mind

GIVE HIM A CUE.
Melt the tension with music. Find a totally sexy song and play it during a totally unsexy moment. Try "Tonight Is the Night" by Betty Wright or "Naughty Girl" by Beyonce--or whatever gets your heart thumping.
 
CUT HIM OFF WITH A SEXY TOUCH.
Your argument is going nowhere, and it's clearly time to take a break. Defuse the situation with this lightning-bolt move: In the middle of his sentence, give him a tight, chest-wrapping hug, kiss the nape of his neck, or start ticklishly brushing your lips against his.

PUT IT IN WRITING.
Think about how you feel when your guy gives you a compliment you've never heard before. It makes you feel closer to him, right? Next time you need a relationship truce, try doing this for him: Write five things that you adore about him on sticky notes and tack them in places he can't miss--like on his six-pack in the fridge or on his side of the bathroom mirror. Don't forget to praise his physique in detail--who doesn't love hearing how hot his partner finds him? You'll give him a lift and remind both of you of the lighter side of your love.
