No! If they find out, you will go to prison! :o Of course, that would solve the distraction problem...

A) Innuendo, generally speaking.
B) Physical contact usually does the trick for most guys. They're not wired to handle subtlety.
C) Not possible.
D) He keeps engaging with you in anything.
Try to do everything; you're bound to succeed with at least one.

"Sending signals is like flirting- it happens naturally, but once you start thinking about it, it becomes impossible."
Don't remember who said that but I'm sure the opposite is also true (flirting is like sending signals)
So if you wanna get good at flirting, play MTG

So basically play it cool even though there's a good chance I can turn into a nervous idiot, got it.

Rats. Well I get to date a cute boy if things work out, so I guess it can't be that bad, huh?

then you break up with him but you want to stay friends because they're really cool and they were your best friend before you started dating. so you both make slight efforts to hang out after that, but one of you has a really busy schedule and slight efforts aren't enough. So even though you consider yourselves "friends" after the break-up, you've only ever been to her house after that in order to take care of her cats/turtle while she's out on vacation. she made a drawing for you and posted it on facebook, that was nice. but whenever you suggest hanging out or delivering a birthday present, she's either not home or she forgets about it the next day. A month later, you realize the cookies you were going to give her to reestablish your friendship are slightly expired, so you share it with your brother who is visiting from another country. they taste good.
It's dangerous to go alone, take me with you! [JUB has joined the party.]

Oh dear, Nebbles, had I known you needed such help.  Here we go.

An answer isn't cut and dry, but for the most part:
   a) Body language and speech patterns.  Are they speaking in ways considered atypical from their normal?  Are they more complimentary? Less?  Could what they are saying have other intentions(see b)?  Do they keep eye contact when talking to you?  Do they try to get close to you(in a non-creepy way)? Do they shy away?  Pay attention for light perspiration and flushed complexion.

   b) Answer me this: what is the objective of flirting?  To display/imply/make known your intentions either subtly or not.  If the goal is sex, innuendo and physical contact are ideal options as Maestro said.  If the goal is a steady relationship or if you are unsure of yourself, compliments and cuteness(batting eyelashes, light giggling) can go a long way.

   c)Wrong question to ask.  'How do I not embarrass myself while flirting?' is a better one.  Know your comfort zone.  If you think you would be uncomfortable doing something, then find something similar that you are comfortable with.  Be yourself, I know that phase has been beaten to death, but it's true and more often than not, it works.

   d)See answer to a.  If they appear to reciprocate your actions/compliments/etc., they are most likely interested.  If you are confident enough and think you're both ready, you can just ask. ::)

Flirting is weird.  It's all about taking chances, trying to find out what works, like a strange game of mao.  As I said before, be yourself, you'll be fine.
You see, we're entertainers. We must keep people smiling. No matter how grim things get, we must always be optimistic!

Why thank you, Sheikah! :D We're hanging out again soon, so I figured I should try to look for these things, if anything...
