The best way to get a man interested in you is to play to your strengths. So, whether you’re going for the rational approach or the intuitive way, make sure you’re being yourself. Otherwise, you can’t hope for a long-term relationship with the object of your affection (how long can you pretend to be someone you’re not?).

There are, however, a few foolproof ways in which you can catch his attention, provided that you adapt them to your personality. Keeping him interested, well, that’s up to you.

#1. Smile and make eye contact

This is the simplest way to let a man know you’re interested. If you’ve found a man you like, keep looking his way until he catches on. Afterwards, exchange glances now and then (careful not to overdo it and look like a weirdo). Guys love getting attention from women.

#2. Love yourself

If you’re in control of your life and happy with who you are, guys will notice and want to be part of your life. On the other hand, if you’re a needy mess, they won’t want to get involved. And could you blame them? Advice: learn to love what you do and who you are. Confidence is sexy.

#3. Love your looks and show them off

Men are sexual beings. Thus, before they learn to love who you are, they will respond to your appearance. There is no such thing as not attractive enough. Every woman has her strengths, but it is up to her to reveal them. Exercise, eat well, get a nice haircut or wear a flattering shade of lipstick. Find out what your strengths are and work them!

#4. Never ever look desperate

Girls that are desperate for attention are a turnoff for men. If you come off as too aggressive or needy he will reject you. So, if he hasn’t noticed you, don’t make the mistake of tapping his shoulder and inserting yourself in the conversation he’s having with his friends.

#5. Make a good first impression

Allow the guy to make the first move and, when he comes over, don’t start talking about politics or global warming. Keep the conversation friendly and casual, crack a joke, smile, make him feel comfortable in your presence.

#6. Mind your body language

Your body should say that you’re confident and approachable. So, don’t slouch and don’t keep your arms crossed. Lean in to hear him better and gently touch his arm. No fidgeting or looking around the room. No checking your phone or playing with your jewelry. All that makes you seem uninterested or too nervous.

#7. Flirt with him

Don’t be afraid to tease and have him tease you back. Keep it light and fun. Catch his undivided attention by playing with your hair or biting your lip. And, if you want him to lean closer, speak in a softer voice.

#8. Create opportunities

While avoiding looking desperate at all costs, you should give your man the opportunity to talk to you. For example, on your way to the bathroom, brush against him and apologize with a smile. Make it seem like he’s making the first move.

#9. Look and dress well

As we’ve said before, men are attracted to good looks. So, doll yourself up, by enhancing your most attractive features. Careful not to overdo it and end up looking like a sex worker.

#10. Be fun

He’s definitely going to approach you if you’re the life of the party. But, even if you’re not the type that exudes happiness, you should still look like you’re having fun. Men like women who smile and love life.

#11. Frequent the same places

Whether by design or by accident, let him see you in places that he usually goes to. You don’t even have to talk to him. He will get the message and miss you when you’re not around.

#12. Ask him for help

If he’s still not getting the hint, create an opportunity for him to help you out. Men love to come to the rescue of a woman in need. The next time you see him, drop a pencil or a stack of papers in his way. Helping you pick them up will give him the opportunity to talk to you.

#13. Take it slow

If you’re engaged with him in a conversation, don’t immediately skip to the “good stuff” by talking about your relationship status and how hard it is to find good men nowadays. You’ll seem desperate, and he’ll run for the hills.

#14. Keep in touch

Drop him a few lines on social media. Careful not to flood him with messages or comments. Instead, wait for him to get back to you and initiate a conversation.

#15. Be mysterious

Keep the guy guessing. Men like discovering who you are, by pulling off layers (that goes for clothes too) while having an interesting conversation. Therefore, don’t start telling him everything about your life and your childhood in the first 5 minutes. Give him the opportunity to ask questions.

#16. Don’t be rude

You should be friendly with men who approach you to talk. Being rude only makes them feel bad and enhances the feeling of rejection. Some guys may like a challenge, but no guy will be attracted to you if you roll your eyes at him or dismiss his ideas.

#17. Play hard to get

Men like chasing girls. So, after you’ve caught his attention, make him work to catch yours. Allowing him to figure you out and to win you over is a huge part of the excitement in first encounters.
