Getting a man’s attention can be challenging, especially when there are so many distractions around us. But don’t worry; I’m here to help! Below are 10 tricks that have worked for me and that I know will work for you too. So ladies, read on and start getting the attention you deserve!
Make him a snack.
Guys love food, and they’ll love you even more if you make them a snack when they get home. I like to make a sandwich with fresh-squeezed orange juice or maybe some cocoa.
Does this one sound too simple? Well, think again! If you make him a snack, it will get his attention right away. The best snacks to make are chocolate chip cookies or brownies.
Guys love snacks. It’s a scientific fact that all men are programmed to respond positively to food. Next time you want to get your guy’s attention, whip up his favorite dish and serve it with a side of smiles. Trust me; he’ll be eating out of the palm of your hand in no time!
However, don’t be surprised if he eats your snack without even thanking you!
Play the damsel in distress.
Want your man to come running when he sees you? Then act like you’re in distress! If you act insecure, your man will want to come running to save you. It’s a man’s instinct to protect his woman and himself, so this trick is sure to get his attention right away.
For example, you can tell him that you’re having trouble opening a jar. Or you can tell him that there’s a spider on your shoulder, and you’re too scared to kill it. If you tell him that you’re lost and don’t know where to go, he’ll definitely want to help you.
The possibilities are endless, so get creative!
Dress to impress!
I’m sure you ladies already know that the key to getting a man’s attention is through your wardrobe. Well, it’s true!
It doesn’t matter if it’s jeans and a tank top or a little black dress; just make sure that your man can appreciate your fashion sense. By dressing to impress, you’ll be able to get the attention of every guy in the room (and maybe some girls too).
Be careful! If you dress too sexy, your man might feel intimidated by you. So if possible, stick to clothes that are just slightly revealing.
Maintain eye contact!
Looking away makes you look shy, and it sends the message that you’re not interested.
Stare into his eyes right from the start and maintain eye contact throughout the conversation. It’s a great way to show him that you’re interested in what he has to say, and it will make you seem more confident (and less shy).
Don’t forget to blink. Often, guys think that girls have a problem with their contact lenses if they don’t blink enough during a conversation.
Whenever I’m in a situation where I want to get my guy’s attention, I always maintain eye contact. It helps me look more interesting, and it makes him want to know more about me. It can be a little intimidating at first, but I promise you that it gets easier with time and practice.
Just be careful! If you maintain eye contact for too long, it could make him think that you’re creepy!
Tell him he’s the best at something.
Everyone loves praise, especially guys! If your man excels at something, let him know that he is the best! Guys love it when girls give them a pat on the back and tell them how amazing they are…
…but don’t be too obvious about it. Don’t start worshiping his feet or anything. Keep it subtle by casually mentioning how good he is at sports, how well he does chores around the house, or how awesome he is at playing video games.
For example, if I’m going out with my guy to an art museum, I might say something like, “Wow! You look cute in that shirt!” Or, if I’m out with my guy at a fancy restaurant, I might tell him that he knows how to hold his knife the right way while cutting his steak.
Bonus points if you do this in front of other guys. It will make your man look like a stud, and it will make other men jealous of him. If you can’t think of anything that your guy excels at, then tell him that he’s the best kisser you’ve ever met. It doesn’t get any sexier than that!
Make sure you laugh at his jokes.
It’s true! Even the most boring guys have something entertaining to say.
If you want your man to feel important, then laugh at his jokes – even if they’re not funny! Guys love it when girls are interested in what they have to say, making them want to talk more. So if you’re out with him at a bar or restaurant, let him know that you enjoy hearing his jokes by laughing at all the appropriate times. Guys love it when girls appreciate their sense of humor!
Everyone likes getting attention from the person they’re talking to! If your man tells you a joke, make sure you laugh.
If he tells a really bad joke, then fake it. If you don’t want to hurt his feelings, just tell him that it’s funny… but inside, you’re probably thinking something like, “Good grief! That was the worst joke I’ve ever heard!”
Many women make the mistake of not laughing at their guy’s jokes, and it makes them look like they don’t have a sense of humor. Not only does this make the man feel unappreciated, but it also makes him think that you’re not interested in what he has to say.
Touch him lightly when you talk to him.
I love playing with his hair and touching him lightly on the arm when I’m around my guy. As long as it doesn’t look like you’re teasing him or making fun of him, guys don’t mind being touched when you talk to them.
If you want to take things a bit further (and if you know he’s into that kind of thing), feel free to smother him. If I’m going out with my boy on the town, I like to wrap my arm around his neck and smother him with kisses. It makes it sexy and playful, which is always a good thing.
Let him take the lead sometimes!
People like following confident people because it makes them feel secure. If your guy is treating you to dinner or taking you on a date, then let him take the lead.
It might seem old-fashioned, but guys like having control sometimes (and girls like pleasing their men). This shows that you trust him, making him feel more secure.
Guys love it when girls let themselves be the man. It’s true! If you want your guy to feel like he needs to take care of you, then let him take control sometimes. Let him choose where you’re going out to eat or what movie you’ll watch together.
It makes guys feel important when they get to be the leader. If you want him to think that you’re easy-going and fun, then let him be in control sometimes. It’s a great way to get on his good side!
Flirt with your man!
Everyone likes flirting because it’s fun and sexy. Not to mention that it shows you’re interested in each other! It shows that you’re paying attention, making him feel respected. Plus, it’s just fun to flirt with your guy! Flirting is a great way to get closer to your man and learn more about him. So if you’re interested in learning more about him, then flirt with him.
If you’re out on a date with him, then try to playfully touch his hand or arm when you talk to him. Or, if the two of you are talking about something that happened in your past, then give him a quick kiss every once in a while.
It shows that you have feelings for him, making both of you feel closer to each other. So if you’re out with your guy and want to get him in the mood, then flirt with him!
Everyone loves someone with a sense of humor! Guys like girls who are funny.
Making him laugh is also an excellent way for you two to bond. So if you want the guy to feel like you’re perfect for each other, then be funny!
This is easy enough if you know your man’s sense of humor. If you can make him laugh, then he’ll think you’re a catch!
If the two of you are hanging out together and something funny happens, then share a chuckle at your expense. This will show that you’re relaxed around him, and laughing at yourself is a great way to stay humble. Plus, it’s just fun to laugh together!
Everyone likes making the other person feel good, and guys are no exception. If you want him to get your attention, then always make sure he’s having a big luff when he’s with you.
