Flirt with a walk on the wild side.

THE Welsh are among the worst flirts in Europe with a massive 86% too shy to send out signals that we are interested, according to new research.

Of the 5,000 singles polled by an online dating service, the most confident flirters were the Austrians (34%) followed by the Spanish (30%) and the Germans (27%).

But the British Heart Foundation is aiming to provide a helping hand as it teams up with PARSHIP. co.uk to launch the first ever Flirt Walk.

Of Britain's nine million singles, only a quarter of men, 23%, and just 12% of women said they would confidently strike up a conversation or make the first move with a complete stranger.

Londoners, Scots and the Welsh are the worst flirts - only 14% had enough courage to send out signals that they were interested.

To improve single Britons' flirting techniques the BHF Flirt Walk is being held in London's Hyde Park on Sunday February 12.
