Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of #AskSaab questions about boys and how to know if they like you or if it’s okay to make the first move. I’m the last person to give you tips on how to flirt. I actually did a Google search on “how to flirt with guys” before writing this blog post. I want to make sure I’m giving the right advice. I SURE HOPE JIM READS THIS IN CASE HE FINDS IT IN MY SEARCH HISTORY. You’re the only one I like to flirt with, sweetheart. ;)
Anyway. Remember high school and how it was the worst-thing-ever to be branded a flirt? If other girls saw you talking to a boy, you were immediately a *gasp* FLIRT!! I guess it’s the whole all-boys/all-girls upbringing that made any interaction with the opposite sex taboo. Feel free to talk to anybody — girls and boys. Who cares if you’re called a flirt by someone who can’t take it that you’re talking to another human being? If they call you a flirt, just yell out O.A.! Haha!
This is why most of us are so awkward with boys (or the other way around). Thankfully, I grew up with 4 brothers but most girls aren’t so lucky. If you’re clueless about how to interact with boys, it would be disastrous when you’re around the ones you actually like.
Gone are the days when a girl had to wait for a guy to approach her first. If you see somebody that you’d like to know better, you should simply smile and start a conversation. Look for a reason to talk to him.
Are you at a bar? You can go up to him and ask, “Excuse me, are you in line?” before ordering your drink. Then you can do a bit of small talk (“Ugh, this song sucks!”) while waiting for your order. If he responds, follow it up with some more (“Diba?? The Chainsmokers are the worst!”) and when he laughs you can introduce yourself and then talk a little bit more if wala pa yung drink (“I’m Saab, I’m not usually this nega, sorry!” *if he gives you his name, he’s probably into you too* “Anyway, if you want to talk about songs we DON’T hate, I’ll be over there with my friends! See ya!”) BONGGA!! Can I write a rom-com or what?!
If he doesn’t go up to you then at least you still got to talk to a cute guy, right? Don’t ever feel like you’re not allowed to do so! I think there’s nothing sexier than a confident woman.

Cracking my knuckles to answer the next batch of #AskSaab questions. I should get a bucket of beer because #MahabahabangInuman yata ito (see what I did there? hehe). Any experiences in flirting? Was it a success or a total flop? I’d love to hear about it. Pagtawanan nalang natin kahit fail man yan. Haha!:p
