How to flirt with a girl in school

Updated November 21, 2016

Flirting is universal and an essential aspect for human interaction. People, societies and cultures all over the world flirt. School can be a good place to flirt because of the number of girls who are around you; most of the time, you will have girls sitting next to you or near you. However, teachers do not like flirting in their classroom and will probably reprimand you for doing it. There are ways of flirting in school that are subtle enough to get the message across without making a scene.

Begin by finding a girl who is on the same level of attractiveness as you. You have a much better chance of success with someone who is on your level than a girl who is way more attractive than you are.

Try not to show off or impress the girl too hard. Simply try to convey the message that you are interested in her.

Make eye contact with the girl. Having prolonged eye contact indicates intense emotion. A long period of eye contact can show intense interest in love or hostility. If the eye contact does not anger the girl, you will be on the right track.

Observe the girl's posture. Her posture could indicate her interest in your flirting attempts. If her body language is negative, such as folding her arms, you will need to try a different approach. If she leans in your direction, however, that would be a positive sign.

Approach the girl as soon as you can, and start a conversation with her. Ask her how her day is going, and try to follow her answer with another subtle question about her, or answer her if she asks you a question. Keep the conversation light and positive.


Sometimes all a girl needs to know is that you are interested in her. Focus on her body language. If she is putting off negative signals, she may not be interested. If she is smiling or looks happy, you can continue sending the strong message that you are interested using prolonged eye contact.


Make sure that the girl knows your intentions without your getting the teacher's attention. This will prevent any embarrassing confusion whenever you are able to talk with the girl. Whenever you cannot speak, body language and nonverbal gestures are the best flirting tools. Use your eyes and facial expressions to convey your interest. Don't flirt with girls who are unlikely to return the same kind of interest.
