Have ever wondered whether you’ve misread signals from someone? Concerned you've missed an opportunity to meet a potential date, or felt stuck on how to flirt with them? If this is sounds familiar then get ready because I am the woman who’s going to liven up your love life!

I will reveal the 7 disastrous flirting mistakes you're making without knowing it and give you the solutions to help you correct them. You will be the coolest kid on the block in no time.

Here are a few things you will take away from the talk:

• A clear idea of things you have been doing wrong in flirting

• How to become a more proficient flirt

• How to become less afraid of rejection

• An understanding of how people like to be flirted with (especially in London!)

• How to become a Fearless Flirter

You will leave this talk armed with new information and, possibly, a few new numbers!

Jean Smith, founder of Flirtology.

A Flirt Interpreter, I can give anyone the confidence – and skills – to attract and approach potential partners…

Flirting is a science and it can be taught. My mission is for you to experience just how good flirting can make you feel, how much fun it is, and how fruitful it can be.

I have always been curious about human behaviour, but I found my niche, flirting, when I moved to London in 1999 and noticed mixed signals were driving all my single friends crazy. After researching the flirting and dating habits of 250 people in London, New York, Paris and Stockholm, I discovered that standard flirting behaviour does cross cultures and that there are six universal flirting signs.

I’ve always given dating and flirting advice to friends and family (my two younger brothers and their friends were my training ground), so after my research revealed scientific proof on how to flirt successfully, I created Flirtology in 2002, teaching practical and fun ways to meet people.

On my two-hour Fearless Flirting Tours, shy people transformed into confident sirens.

A small shift in how you feel about yourself can impact the rest of your life. And I can help. In a matter of hours you’ll learn…

Fearless flirting / Rejection is your friend. Feel confident when faced with new situations and people, reassured any form of perceived rejection is not something to be afraid of – it’s actually your friend! It’s the process of natural selection in action. You can’t connect with everyone, so if someone doesn’t “get” you, that’s fine. Simply move on and spend your energy finding someone you click with.

Be grateful. Often we focus on an area we feel is lacking. Instead, feel grateful for everything you already have. Recognise how amazing your life is whether you have a partner or not.

How to be happy. If you’re smiling and in a great mood, others can’t help but feel happy being around you. You’ll become a magnet because of the good feelings you exude.

Trust me, flirting is fun, dating is easy and life is full with or without a partner. Join me on a Fearless Flirting Tour and I’ll prove it! Or let’s get to the heart of the matter with some Private Coaching.
