Here are a few good and bad ways to perfect your “dance.” BAD: Making eye contact by staring at him. If you stare at a guy, it will seem like you’re either staring him down or acting stalker-ish. Just a quick glance (with the essential grin) is flirting — even without saying a word!
GOOD: Catch his eye and hold his glance just a little longer than usual. *** BAD: Laugh at every word that comes out of his mouth. GOOD: Laugh when you think he says something funny.
If he’s interested, he might let you smooth his feathers.
And if not, at least you know so you can move on to a different, worthier dance partner.
Telling the whole school you’re in love with your lab partner could get embarrassing, both for you and the guy.

It’s tough being a guy because you’re always afraid of putting yourself out there. If you’re interested, smile back or something, so he knows he’s not about to look like an idiot when he comes up to talk to you. More than one person has called you a “total flirt.” If you answered Yes to all 10 questions, you are a CONFIDENT CHICK.
