The first step in any romance begins with a greeting and online is no different. Be the brazen one and send him a simple greeting such as “hey” whenever he comes online. One of the best ways to show an online guy you like him is to greet him the moment he comes online. He will get the hint that you are happy to see him. A good way to test your crush’s interest after you have had a few chats, is to wait and see if he initiates conversations in the future.
2. USE EMOTICONS FREQUENTLY
Flirting is a bit tricky when its done online. Unless you have a webcam, you need to rely heavily on flirty emoticons to convey facial expressions. Flirty emoticons are created using colons, semicolons and letters in a variety of ways. Some good emoticon choices include the winky smiley face, the winky smiley face with its tongue sticking out, smiley face, the kiss and the smirk.
3. MAINTAIN A POSITIVE CONVERSATION TONE
Although there are endless topics to talk about with a guy, your overall tone should be laidback and happy. Avoid complaining because its likely to annoy and bore him. Another thing you shouldn’t do is to tell him that you hate certain aspects of your body such as your hips because it will seem like you are fishing for compliments and lack confidence. Keep things light, fun and interesting.
4. KEEP CONVERSATION FLOWING
If the two of you click, then the conversation will naturally flow without awkward silences filled with “…” on your computer screen. If phone silence is dreadful, online silence is just as bad because a conversation can go from playful banter to an abrupt silence where imaginary virtual crickets can be heard chirping in the background. So to minimize the chance of that awfulness from happening, think of some easy questions ahead of time to to ask him. As he talks about himself, sprinkle flirtatious innuendos throughout the conversation so he gets the feeling that you like him as more than a friend.
5. SHARE YOUR HUMOROUS SIDE
Guys love girls that have a great sense of humor so don’t be afraid to share yours. Show him that you enjoy the funny things in life by e-mailing him funny pics, jokes or sayings. If you are Facebook friends, post funny pics or quotes on your wall that are related to a topic that you discussed in a previous conversation. If he posts something funny, make sure to compliment him on it next time you chat with him.
