While Canadians rioted over losing the Stanley Cup last week, American girls continue to riot over losing Justin Bieber to Selena Gomez. UsMagazine.com reports that the 17-year-old pop sensation, who tied for Best International Video by a Canadian with Drake at the Much Music Awards, went up to receive his award from no other than his girlfriend. He then proceeded to fake a kiss, and instead, went for a hug.  “Selena, nice to meet you.  My name is Justin,” he said in a fake introduction. “You’re very beautiful. Maybe we can go out sometime!”

What are the best ways to flatter in public?

Cupid’s Advice:

Flattery is a great way to show affection for your partner.  Cupid has a few pointers for some great ways to do so in public:

1. Poke war: This doesn’t have to be limited to Facebook poking!  Expand your touchy-feely ways between yourself and your guy with a game of footsie under the table.

2. Fake intro: Similar to what Bieber did to Gomez, ‘randomly’ meet your partner while out and strike up a conversation, reintroducing yourself. It’s a cute way to spice things up in your relationship.

3. Flash mob: Flash mobs, where random people seemingly come out of nowhere and start to synchronize dance in public spaces, is becoming ever more popular. Take a cue from this bold gesture and get some of your friends to ‘flash’ your love while at the mall or beach. While it may sound silly, it definitely shows your other half – as well your friends and tons of innocent bystanders – how much he or she means to you.
