Have you ever found it difficult to figure out how to make a guy like you? Sometimes it seems pretty hopeless, doesn’t it?
Getting the undivided attention of a man isn’t always easy, but when you understand exactly what men want and what makes men tick, you can position yourself to become his one and only love interest. Relationship expert, Paige Parker’s, best selling ebook, “Dating Without Drama”, is a great place to start if you want to release and empower the amazing woman inside of you and uncover the things that will make men pursue you.
How To Make A Guy Like You – Why Understanding Exactly What Makes Him Tick Is So Important
It’s a fact. Men are very visually oriented. Looks matter to virtually all men, and it’s ingrained in their DNA to be attracted to the physical appearance of a woman. It’s what they’ll notice first about you. Don’t hold it against them. Use it to your advantage.
Before you can get a man to like you, he first has to notice you. You need to make yourself stand out from the crowd.
It’s really quite simple. Take care of your appearance. Put makeup on, do your hair cute, and dress like you want to impress. After all, you do want to impress him, right?
It’s about looking YOUR best, not comparing yourself to the most popular or most beautiful girl you know. Remember that. It’s important.
Does this mean you’ll always have to spend hours in front of the mirror for the rest of your life every time you want to be around guys? Of course not. Once he gets to know you, it won’t be as important because he’ll know you inside and out. But he can’t get to know you if he doesn’t notice you in the first place.
If you want to capture the attention of a man, wear something that makes you feel beautiful. Notice, I said beautiful and NOT “dress like a prostitute”. I’m not talking about mini-skirts, high heels, and outrageous amounts of cleavage that might land you in jail for indecent exposure.
When you feel beautiful, you’ll act beautiful. If you want to make a guy yours, the way you act will be even more important than the way you look.
Love yourself, smile, and control your body with confidence. Remember how I said it’s about looking YOUR best? You don’t have to be a “10″ to catch the attention of a man because a man will choose a happy, confident woman over an insecure “10″ every single time. But, by appealing to his visual senses, you’re much more likely to grab his attention.
Be fun and flirty. Give him a reason to want to be around you.
One of the quickest ways to drive a man away and make him want to have nothing more to do with you is to be negative, complain, and manipulate. It’s the classic case of being a “Debbie Downer”.
On the other hand, if you want to drive him crazy (in a good way) show him your fun and flirtatious side.
Love being you no matter what you look like. Be happy, be fun, be confident, and always show a contagious, positive attitude when you’re around him. The better you make him feel when he’s around you, the more he’ll want you and the more he’ll fall in love with you.
Don’t be afraid to flirt. It’s fun, and doing so will let him know you’re interested. If you don’t know the best way to flirt with a man to create attraction, Mimi Tanner’s, “Secrets Of Flirting With Men”, can be a valuable resource.
Don’t Hold Back. Take The Initiative
If you want a guy to like you, he has to get to know you, so don’t be afraid to take the initiative and make the first move. Men are generally expected to make the first move, but it doesn’t mean they necessarily like to or have to.
If you want to make the first move but lack confidence in selecting a fun, exciting first date that will leave a memorable impression, take advantage of Oprah’s love and relationship expert, Michael Webb, who has an excellent ebook called “300 Creative Dates”. You’ll never run out of ideas and will always have something in mind for that all important second date.
Men like knowing a woman is interested in them. Many men like to appear macho on the outside, but deep down, most men have a big fear of being rejected, especially by a woman. When you let a guy know you’re interested through your body language, it removes his fear of rejection and gives him the confidence to make a move and approach you.
Even though you approach him first, you can still give him the opportunity to be the one to ask you out so he doesn’t feel like you’re taking on the male role in the relationship.
Give him signals that you like him and be careful not to disrespect him in the things you say. For men, respect is even more important than love and if he PERCEIVES disrespect in the things you say (even if it’s totally unintentional on your part), then it can quickly turn him off. I highly recommend reading James Bauer’s What Men Secretly Want to fully understand the ways women sometimes disrespect men without even knowing it.
To let a man know you’re interested, make eye contact with him and always remember to smile when he looks at you. If you’re shy and look away, he may take it to mean you’re not interested, so always remember to be confident. After all, confidence is sexy and it’s one of the keys to make a guy like you.
