Why do girls sometimes get really nervous when I talk to them?

Like I act very confident and flirty and I make sure I make eye contact with an intense gaze when I talk to them, but they get all tongue tied when I do that and they act very awkward. They would smile a lot and laugh, but it is not a normal conversation. Mainly happens to girls around my age.
