Flirting’s effect on your body
Bat your lashes, flip your hair and wiggle your hips! Flirting has quite the effect on your body. Check out the effect of playing the coquette here.

Who knew that, apart from the rush you feel when you’re charming a guy’s pants off, flirting has a major effect on your body?

Flirting and that loved up feeling

Euphoria and the crazy high we feel is due to a naturally occurring amphetamine called phenylethylamine which is released when we meet someone we’re attracted to.

Blushing beauty

Flirting’s biggest effect on your body is the rush of adrenaline, which in turn leads to flushed cheeks. Blushing is an auto-response to the adrenaline rush you get from making a move and a dead giveaway that you're into someone.

Knocking knees

Get that weak-kneed feeling when you’re chatting up a hottie? You’re not alone! Feeling like you’re going to fall over is completely normal. The pleasure-neurotransmitter dopamine rushes through your body, making you feel momentarily weak.

That tingling feeling

As you flirt, a flood of the intimacy hormone oxytocin gets your heart pumping, making the twins super sensitive! As an added bonus they swell with blood making them appear slightly larger. The oxytocin flood doesn't just affect your breasts; it also causes you to feel a tingly, warming sensation down there too.

The sweaty effect on your body

Not quite so pleasant when you’re trying to flirt but sweaty palms should be expected. Sexually charged interactions trigger the release of the sweat gland – stimulating hormone norepinephrine.

Who knew that something as simple as winking at a cute guy could have that much of an effect on your body! For some tips on how to flirt check out 10 classy ways to flirt.
