If you’re not the life of the party, getting him to notice you will take more finesse. That’s why we’ve put together a list of things you can do to speed things up. All these methods are recommended by relationship and matchmaking experts, so there’s something in here for everyone.
We don’t mean you should wear a constant fake smile even though you’re feeling miserable. Go to places that you enjoy, and have fun. He will notice you having a good time and will want to be around you.
#2. Don’t hide in the corner
If you’re hiding behind plants and wallowing in the corner of the room, you’re not going to make an impression. Instead, keep yourself busy by talking to people or getting drinks at the bar. Bring yourself to the foreground.
#3. Ask for his help
As cliché as it may sound, men like to help women out. So, break the ice by asking him to recommend a good app, or a nice restaurant. Find something small you need help with, and ask him nicely.
#4. Talk about your hobbies
Any guy will be attracted to an active woman, who has hobbies and interests outside of dating. Therefore, you should talk about your yoga class, the latest book you’ve read, your favorite movie, or anything that you enjoy. Who knows? You might discover that you have a lot in common.

#5. Don’t dress for your girlfriends
Don’t be surprised when the guy you like isn’t responding to your latest fashion experiment. Guys are usually unimpressed by fashion trends. You’re better off going for something timeless that suits you well and is comfortable.
#6. Look him in the eye
Direct eye contact always works, as long as you don’t turn it into a staring contest. Hold his gaze from time to time and flirt from across the room.
#7. Avoid looking like a know-it-all
If he compliments your clothes, don’t tell him the name of the brand unless he specifically asks for it. Otherwise, thank him and change the topic. The same goes for recommending food or fancy places. Being humble is better than appearing materialistic.
#8. Avoid large groups
If you’re going out with a large group of girls, it will be difficult to stand out. Instead, go by yourself or with only one friend. If you do find yourself in a larger group, try to detach yourself from it, or show him an angle of you that he normally wouldn’t see at first glance – like how funny or smart you are.
#9. Say “thank you”
Apparently, even the most confident men appreciate receiving a “thank you” after buying a girl a drink. You don’t even need to say it in person. How about you text it to him afterwards?
#10. Stay off your phone
Granted, internet life is fun. But, while your eyes are glued to the phone screen, you’re missing out on the life happening around you. This includes the cute guy looking at you from across the room.
#11. Bring your interests with you
Bring a book, a sketchpad or whatever object represents a “to-go” interest that you have. Men need a reason to approach you, so give them one.
#12. Wear weird jewelry
Like we said before, men need a conversation starter in order to approach you. Your huge ring or weird flowery necklace could give them the inspiration they need to come up to you and ask you a question.
