While you should never change who you are for anyone else because you’re amazing as you are, it’s only natural to want to show off the best sides of yourself to a potential partner. When you find a guy who is fun, attractive, and makes you smile, how do you get his attention? Thankfully, psychology has the answer! Here are ten scientifically proven ways to make a guy like you.
Use his name.
Studies show that when you call someone by their name, over time, they’ll start to see you as a friendly and thoughtful person. Most of us simply forget to use each other’s names, so this can also help you stand out from the crowd. It doesn’t have to be forced— greet him by name, and say his name again when you leave. (“It was nice talking to you, Mark!”)
The color red is actually proven to make you look more sexy and attractive. It’s also a nice eye-catching color, which is perfect if you’ll be with a large group of friends.
Keep your neck and wrists open.
There’s a reason most women apply perfume on the neck and the insides of the wrists. According to body language experts, these areas of the body are seen as vulnerable. By uncovering your wrists or your neck, you’ll show him that you feel open with him. Some people also see this as a sign of honesty.
Mirror his body language.
Most people do this automatically, without even thinking about it. But if you get a bit nervous or flustered around him, you might have to consciously remember this step. Men are attracted to women who copy their general body language. You don’t need to copy everything he does, but try to do the same general movements. If he sits with one leg crossed over the other, wait a few seconds and cross your legs too. This will make a big difference, especially in the first few weeks.
Do some small favors.
If you ask for help with the small things, most people will say yes. This might include asking him to close the door, or if he has a pen you could borrow. When we help other people, we tend to like them better. Just be sure to reciprocate and help him if he needs anything. Over time, you’ll stand out in his mind as someone who is considerate and a good team player.
Make eye contact.
When I was younger, I used to have a really hard time making eye contact with anyone who I thought was cute. But science says that if you make eye contact with someone, they are more likely to be attracted to you. While you’re listening to him, make eye contact. It’s a small gesture, but it works wonders!
Learn more about his life.
If you want to show a guy that you’re interested in him, ask him about his interests, his job, and his favorite foods. Get the conversation going, and let him talk before you mention your own interests. This will show him that you have good listening skills and you think he’s pretty cool.
Enjoy some of the same hobbies and interests.
Whether you both like the same obscure indie band or you like to spend your free time backpacking through the mountains, if you can find something that you both enjoy, focus on that. Maybe you start a hiking club with your mutual friends, or you talk about the upcoming season of your favorite show. Enjoying a common interest is helpful because it gives you a reason to talk with him. Plus, if he ends up being unavailable, you can still be friends and bond over the things you have in common.
Take care of yourself.
So many women stop pursuing their own goals once they meet a guy. However, if the guy is worth your time, he would like you to take care of yourself. Make sure to keep clean, eat healthy, and make time for your own friends, family, and hobbies. A woman is most attractive when she’s confident.
Confess your feelings.
It may be hard at first, but chances are if you admit your feelings for a guy to his face, he’s more likely to reciprocate. Worst case scenario, he’s already taken and he’ll tell you that he’s not interested. Best case scenario, he has the same feelings for you and asks you out on a date. It might feel scary at first, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. Just let him know that you like him and you think he’s a cool guy. Then give him a chance to respond and go from there.
