Most people know Snapchat as a messaging platform to chat with friends and family members. However, Snapchat is incredibly versatile and can even function as a platform to flirt with love interests, especially since the platform makes it easy to send and receive photos and videos. Still, there are a few guidelines you should follow when you want to flirt on Snapchat. We created a list of the most helpful tips for you to use!
Test the Waters
Before you start sending very explicit messages, it’s always good to test the waters to see if the other person is interested in flirting with you. Start off with a simple “hi, how are you” and wait for their reply. You can then go on to ask about their day, or something else, or you can ask them if they are interested in getting to know you better, with a wink at the end. This indicates that you’re open to flirting with them without making them feel uncomfortable. If they are interested, you’ll find out soon enough. If they are not, they will often politely let you know.
While you may be eager to share every detail with your conversational partner, you may want to stay a tad mysterious. Not only does this leave them wanting more, but it also makes the conversation very exciting as well.
Let’s say you’re describing your ideal date night. You could go on about all the things you wish to do when you get back to your home, or you could end the description about the dinner with “And we’ll see what the night brings…” It leaves a lot for the imagination, yet it keeps a sense of mystery.
Before flirting with someone, you can ask yourself, “what might this person be looking for on Snapchat?” Sometimes, people’s intentions are evident, which you can see from their Snapchat usernames. If it’s something, like “looking2meet” or “curiouskitten,” there’s a big chance these people are open to flirting with one or multiple people. On the other hand, people with usernames like “horselover2000” and “dinosaurguy” may not be as interested in chatting with a potential romantic or flirting partner.
Mix It Up
While Snapchat allows for easy chatting with the private messaging window, it’s a great platform to mix things up when you’re flirting with someone. When you’re starting out, messaging is a safe way to go. However, once you know the other person is interested in flirting with you, you can send them a picture with an alluring caption to get their attention. You can also send them a short video of you talking, giving them a compliment, or just winking to the camera. By mixing up your messaging media, you keep things interesting.
As you can see, there are many ways in which you can start flirting on Snapchat. However, there are plenty more ways to explore. Just use your creativity and your knowledge of the other person to send them catchy pick-up lines, or sexy photos. As long as you both have fun, the sky is the limit!
