One of the most basic ways of letting someone know you're interested in them is to have a little flirt.
It's a lot easier said than done and can often leave people stumped at the first hurdle so here are some tips to help you on your way.
Body language really does speak louder than words, it can tell you a lot about a person from very little observation.
The last thing you want to do is shut a person off, so that best posture is to sit up straight with your shoulders back and your head up whilst keeping your arms loosely folded in your lap.
What you don't want to do is to sit hunched up with your arms tightly folded across your body, this gives the impression that you don't want to let anyone in and that you're not at ease with the situation.
One of the single most important things to do when you're interested in someone and you want them to know it is to keep eye contact.
This can be difficult especially when you're nervous or shy but try your hardest to keep it up.
As they say, the eyes are the window to the soul and so by keeping eye contact you'll make more of an impression and it will give a greater feeling of connection.
Not everyone loves to be touched so at least make sure you're getting on well before progressing to touch.
When you feel the time is right, simply touch their arm when laughing or place your hand on their leg when talking to them.
If they react badly then simply stop and brush it off but if they seem to welcome it then keep it up!
It sounds really obvious but if you're enjoying their company then smile about it!
Smiling is one of the most attractive things in a person and something that most of us would say is the first thing we notice about a person.
Not only will it show you're having a good time but it lets you personality shine through and shows that you're relaxed.
Lastly, Be Yourself!
Nothing is more attractive than being yourself so don't worry if you're not the flirtiest person in the world!
You can still let someone know you like them without being the loudest, most extrovert person in the room.
If you really like someone than you'll find that the flirting will come naturally so don't stress, just keep cool and follow these tips and you should be well on your way to success!
