If you follow these 10 simple and easy flirting techniques, you're sure to win over bae without embarrassing yourself and get #results. Good luck!

1. Like their Instagrams and watch their Snapchats

Liking one photo doesn't really prove anything, but if you consistently double-tap most of their Instagrams (read: not every single one), they'll get the hint sooner or later.

2. Make eye-contact

You don't need to get into a creepy staring contest, but looking your crush in the eye when you talk is a subtle way to show off your confident side.

3. Let your emojis do the talking

Think more strategically-placed kissy face, less 10 zillion heart-eyes.

4. Wave and say "hi" when they walk by

For all the shy gals, this move is for you! One second of putting yourself out there and you're done. They'll get the message.

5. Say something simple, then keep the conversation going

You, um, totally "forgot" to write down the English homework, so you shoot your crush a casual Facebook message. Once you get the homework assignment, continue the convo — you already have their attention, so why not? The more you two talk, the more you can show off your personality (and learn about theirs).

6. Remember what they tell you, then bring it up later

If you weren't interested in them, you wouldn't bother committing that detail about their family vacay to the Gold Coast to memory. So when you bring it up two weeks later, it causes a lightbulb to go off in your crush's head. All of a sudden, they think, Wait, whoa, she remembered I told her that! Awesome.

7. Give them a sincere compliment

Go ahead, make them feel all glow-y and blush-y and smiley.

8. Casually touch their arm when you're talking

This is a classic flirting tip for a reason: Even if your crush isn't great at picking up on signals, they'll def notice a tiny bit of physical contact. It's juuust bold enough to grab their attention.

9. Tease them

It's just like your mom told you back in first grade when that meanie was making fun of you — that meanie secretly liked you. All these years later, the same logic holds true. Just remember — you want to be playful, not hurtful.

10. Give them something thoughtful

Like say their fave chocolate. You just, um, "happened" to see it at 7/11 and you knew they'd like it. It's fine to play it off really casually like you just randomly had an extra one in your bag.
