Spotting daily opportunities

Feeling more positive about making more friends and getting more dates with your shiny new attitude? All you need now are opportunities to let yourself loose.

Practice makes perfect; use a range of flirtations regularly to become a flirting expert.

Think about your daily routine and the types of people you're likely to encounter through the course of a day. You're looking for lots of friendly flirting opportunities to cut your teeth on and boost your confidence and skills, as well as more adventurous romantic flirtations.

In an average day you can expect to interact with:

✓ People in queues, in shops, banks, cafes, and so on

✓ People on public transport

✓ Commuters in traffic jams and at traffic lights

✓ Colleagues at work

✓ People at the gym or involved in your chosen hobby/interest

✓ People via email

✓ People on forums or in chatrooms

Barbara went to the local theatre to collect her daughter from her dance school's show. As she waited in the foyer for the performance to finish, Santa approached her. He showed her the split in the back of his trousers and asked if she thought the children would be able to notice it. Santa's young face was just as cute as his bum, and Barbara couldn't help but engage in a mild flirtation with him.

Santa was quite happy to reciprocate; he was terrified of facing 200 screaming kids and it was a pleasant distraction from his pre-stage nerves. In the space of a few minutes Barbara and Santa enjoyed a delicious - and innocent - flirtation. It left Barbara with a smile on her face and Santa with a spring in his step.

Never miss the opportunity to make someone else's day with a friendly flirtation, be they young, old, or the same sex as you.

✓ Parents at the school gates

✓ People dog walking
