Flirt-o-meter

Mostly As: You’re not averse to using your charms to get your way, but your direct and friendly attitude may make people think you just want to be mates. Ramp up the flirtation factor with a bit of subtle touching and hair-twirling to make it more obvious when you fancy someone.

Mostly Bs: Flirting is a way of life for you. Whether you’re single or in a relationship, you love getting attention from the opposite sex. Although it’s fun and good practice for future dating scenarios, be careful you don’t go overboard, and make sure it’s appropriate for the situation.

Mostly Cs: The idea of being flirtatious brings you out in a cold sweat and you’re not comfortable on the receiving end of it either. But if you’re on the lookout for a new relationship, a little gentle flirting won’t do any harm. You may find it gives you a confidence boost when it’s reciprocated.
