How to flirt

Unread postby wolfcub » Mon Mar 09, 2020 11:14 am

I'm on the spectrum and have almost no dating experience. I'm trying to get a grasp on flirting with girls. I've seen what not to do (use pick up lines, touch them out of nowhere, etc.) that stuff is obvious to me. I just don't know how, when and where to do it that doesn't make me seem like a creep. I need to know; how the f*** do I flirt (online and IRL) and what are some concepts to keep in mind when I do? Please respond because this is frustrating me to no end!
