To express interest in a person's conversation and social company is easy; simply maintain a friendly attitude. To express interest in affection, ranging from holding hands to the mattress mambo, more finesse is required. A delicious pie must be baked, and the customer must be enticed. To seduce someone with whom you interact, any of several strategic maneuvers can be employed. The trick is to gauge the other person's level of interest, and then return the same amount of seductive energy. For example, go to IMPROVment! and gently slap their leg after a hilarious scene. If they react uncomfortably, play it cool and pull back. If they hide a smile or turn red, try something more seductive in the future. It can be simple, like finding innocuous reasons for touching them, such as picking a fuzzy off of their jacket or out of their hair. The keys are showing off assets (such as the skin, even a naked shoulder; or the buttocks, in tight jeans; or even personality, by listening and being supportive) and creating reasons to spend time together.

Whatever happens, please remember to be courteous to other people. Although it is typically considered "very unsexy" to verbalize whether or not seduction techniques took place, it is necessary to be honest and direct during an actual discussion.
