Todd says that saying something, , to a guy can be enough of an invitation to encourage him to make a move. Do you make an effort to encourage guys to flirt with you? A reader recently wrote in with this frustration: on dates he is able to get conversations going easily but finds most of the women he meets, while willing to answer his questions, ask no questions of their own.When that cute guy you were making eyes at all night doesn't ask you out or even come up to say hi, it can feel like a rejection.

Interrupting each other on a first date can actually be a great sign as you’re both anxious to talk to each other.
Obviously, it should be done only when you really do want to interject something.
But that’s the point: if you wait for some people to allow you to talk you’ll be silent the entire night!
For example, if I was on a date and she started to describe a TV show I also like I might interrupt her with: “I love that show! Sometimes You’ll Need to Answer Your Own Questions Try this: ask a question, allow them to answer, and then allow them the opportunity to ask you a question back by remaining silent.

So don't be afraid to let men in on that secret."2. According to Todd, a lot of men find their minds going completely blank when they're trying to think of what to say once they've approached a girl.
