In Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes, spring means everyone is walking or running around the lakes. This makes a perfect opportunity for you to get some exercise and practice your flirting skills. Whether you walk or run around your favorite lake here are some tips to make new personal connections.
This is the easiest way to flirt around a lake. You can wear whatever you feel best in but remember to leave the high heels at home. Try to not use sunglasses; eye contact is the window to your soul and the welcome invitation for someone to want to talk to you.
- Go Solo
One of the key moves when lake flirting is to go alone. You won’t look desperate, but will look approachable. Make eye contact with the people walking in the opposite direction as you. Acknowledge them by smiling and if you are brave say hello. They will definitely remember you when you cross again.
- Heavy Petting:
If you like animals, show it. Compliment people on their dogs. Ask them what breed their dog is, the dog’s name, the dog’s age. Compliment the dog is complimenting the owner, an excellent way to flirt. Start to steer the conversation to the things the owner likes to do with the dog, introduce yourself and now you are in full-on flirting territory!
This is a more complex way to flirt around a lake. Wear appropriate running wear, waterproof mascara is good, but a face full of melting foundation is not. Again, try to lose the sunglasses; eye contact is the easiest way to make attract and show interest.
- Be Predictable:
Try to have a running schedule. Not just for your own health, but this way you start to become familiar with the other same-time runners around the lake. Soon they will make sure to say hello to you and you now have a common interest in which to make a connection with them.
- Use The Classics:
Make eye contact. Smile at people. Since you are running, do the hello head nod thing and smile. Strike up a casual conversation with someone when you’ve completed your run. Or if you are more forward and less exercise-inclined, end your run when you see someone with whom you would like to flirt. Take a cool-down stroll alongside them or stretch out near them.
