When you are attracted to a person, the first thing you want to do is start flirting. You might even have started before you realized it. There is a great yearning to scream to the person you like that you fancy them. But, in reality people flirt instead of screaming; otherwise you risk scaring them away. It is not easy to start a flirt and, you might find yourself needing some pointers.
And the followings are huge changes of the ways flirting from 2007 to 2018. Let’s check them out!
1. Posting your “sexy” pic.
While it’s all about breezy beach pics and soft Instagram filters now, 2007 was a more dramatic time for the ~sexy~ shot. Your best selfie was always (1) in your room, (2) taken from a top angle to make your eyes look bigger and, let’s be real, your boobs too, and (3) overexposed into oblivion because you always used flash. By now, you know better and always seek out natural light and an eye-level shot, but damn. Baggy eyes were way easier to hide back then.
2. Subtly getting their attention.
Ahhhh, the Facebook/Twitter/Instagram like. Universal in its simplicity, subtle in its form, and just overall the best training wheels to actually starting a conversation. But 2007, two years before Facebook introduced the revolutionary thumb’s up, was a time where people did what is now the unthinkable now: poke each other. You’d poke a person, they’d poke you back. It felt pointed but meant nothing. Eventually, you’d be desensitized from your multiple pokes a day, just in time for technology to advance and find better ways of getting your crush’s attention.
