The art of flirting is different for every sign. Need to know how to flirt with a Gemini man? Just don’t play games, unless you’re playing his game…
How Does a Gemini Flirt?
You need to know if all your flirty hair tosses and arm-touching is paying off. Because to be honest, sometimes it’s hard to tell with Geminis. Is he flirting, or is he just being friendly?
To understand how to flirt back, you’ve got to understand how the Gemini guy tries to put the moves on you in the first place. You two need to be speaking the same body language. Makes sense, right?
For the social butterfly Gemini, curiosity is the driving force of many interactions. While he’s chatting you up and asking you borderline personal questions, you’re thinking that he’s interested in you, but he may just be satisfying his natural curiosity.
OK, so how does the Gemini male show interest, then?
There are plenty of helpful signals you can read about in the wide world of the internet, but I’m going to share a few of the clearest ones so you don’t misinterpret the situation.
All signs rule some part of the body. For Gemini, it’s the hands. These creative types are known not just for enjoying working, but also flirting with their hands.
Note any attempts to touch you. Your shoulder, your hair, your knee…he’ll want to make contact in some way if he can. If he’s just getting to know you, he’ll do it in a casual sort of way so you can’t outright say that he’s trying to get handsy with you. It’ll be friendly, in other words. That is, unless you’re reciprocating some heavy flirting and touching with your Gemini…
But he could also try to put an arm around you in a way that’s romantic yet lighthearted while he’s still trying to figure out how you’ll respond.
Meet His Twin
Ever hear that Geminis have a dual personality? It’s a reference to the symbol that represents the sign of Gemini, the Twins. While it’s true that everyone has different sides to their personalities, the contrast tends to be starker with Geminis. And they can switch at the drop of a hat.
Use this knowledge to your advantage when trying to suss out whether you entice the Gemini.
If you show up to a bar to meet a group of friends and you start hearing how the Gemini was so calm before and now he’s acting crazy, you know something has sparked his interest. Maybe you.
It’s good to use social situations to test this. A Gemini will often undergo a complete transformation in your presence that affects his interactions with everyone. Sometimes he’s trying to show off in front of you. But it’s just what you do to him.
Other times, he’ll switch when interacting with you one-on-one. He may start acting shy, but even a shy Gemini can go from zero to sixty when he’s trying to mac on you.
When a Gemini man wants you, you’ll likely have little trouble being able to tell because he won’t stop or slow down. He’ll shower you with continuous attention. I say attention because Geminis like to pepper you with random compliments, jokes, teases, questions and intellectual commentary.
Something you should know is that Geminis are famous for being massive flirts for a reason. Because they do flirt, a lot. But sometimes some casual flirting is just that for the Gemini, and he’s not looking to pursue things any further.
That’s why it’s important to see how determined he seems. If he keeps looking around the room instead of at you, or he’s taking opportunities to escape the interaction, he was either just being super personable or having a little fun. Geminis do that sometimes.
If he wants you, he’ll continue to direct his energy toward you.

How to Flirt with a Gemini Man
Some witty banter and a good mental connection are turn-ons for sure, but Geminis can be a mystery. Your usual flirting game might not work in a situation where you’re trying to get the attention of a Gemini.
Your best weapons are your mind and your words, but like any weapon, it’s how you use them that counts.
Don’t Hold Back
Now is not the time to be shy. Walk right up to that sexy Gemini man and start a conversation. Command his attention. You’ll get it. If he likes what you’re saying, he’ll reciprocate.
Being a bold flirter doesn’t come naturally to everyone. If you’re the type who waits for the guy to come to you, you may not get the results you want as the busy Gemini drifts around the room talking to everyone.
Engage His Mind
Gemini belongs to the air sign group of the zodiac, the other two being Aquarius and Libra. Air is the element of the mental sphere, making these folks highly intellectually stimulated. How to flirt with a Gemini man always starts with his mind.
The trick is to stimulate it in the right way. With Gemini, the sign ruled by the fast-talking and quick-moving planet Mercury, you want to keep the conversation dynamic. It shouldn’t stagnate. Avoid heavy topics. Be inquisitive. Show genuine interest in what you’re talking about.
This is one of the easiest approaches, and it’s pretty darn effective.
By all means, when you’re having success flirting with a Gemini man, reach out and put a hand on his knee. Point something out on his shirt and touch his chest. Make physical contact!
Keep Him on His Toes
Want to stimulate that big brain of his? Feel free to try to get his opinion on which side of a *superficial* cultural debate he stands on, then take the other side.
Don’t just agree with everything he says because you think he’ll connect with you that way. While he wants to have things in common with you, it’s also true that he wants you to be your own person, with a mind of your own. He likes it when you challenge him in a friendly way.
Just make sure it stays light and breezy. Geminis jump at the chance to exercise their clever minds, but they aren’t into drama.
Oh yes, compliment him. Geminis respond very well to outright compliments. It shows them that you’re into them and that they have a green light to proceed and turn up the flirting.
Tell him he’s got nice eyes, nice arms, whatever you want. Talk about how much you enjoy talking to him because he’s clever.
Keep It Light and Positive
At all costs, try to avoid anything that gets super serious, emotional or negative in any way. That might scare off the Gemini, who is not naturally equipped to handle situations that take a darker or more dramatic turn.
Give him positive feedback and have fun together. It doesn’t mean that if you two end up getting serious that he can’t ever be serious. But wait to get to that point.
These are not the only moves that work.
