If you feel unlucky in love, it may be time to change the way you interact, suggests a University of Kansas study. Researchers identified five flirting personalities, and some scored higher than others for long-term appeal.

1. Physical flirts use sexual energy to show interest.
2. Traditional flirts believe men should make the first move.
3. Polite flirts prioritize proper manners above all else.
4. Sincere flirts want to get to know a person on the inside.
5. Playful flirts approach the dating game, well, like a game.

Members of the opposite sex rated the physical and sincere flirting styles as the best for chemistry and connection.
