Best Ways to Get a Guy to Notice You
Getting a guy to notice you may seem like a daunting task, but it is not that hard if you understand how his mind works. No matter what type of guy he is, the bottom line is that you will capture and maintain his interest if there is something about you that intrigues him and makes him want to know more about you. Having said that, keep in mind that we are focusing on the first step here: getting him to notice you. We won’t be delving into the details about how to get him to make a move and ask you out, but we will definitely help you with some strategies to capture his attention in the first place. Whether you have a crush on a guy who you’ve known for a while, or you just want to learn some moves to use if you see a hot guy when you’re out, keep reading to see our list of tips to ensure that he notices you!
1Look Your Best
Why this tip will get him to notice you: First of all, you need to understand that guys are visual creatures which means that ultimately, the first thing that he will notice is whether he is visually attracted to something about you. This doesn’t mean that you need to be Angelina Jolie’s identical twin, but it does mean that you should strive to present yourself in your best light possible and enhance your best features. For example, if you have stunning eyes, draw attention to them by using flattering makeup. On the topics of makeup, studies have shown that guys do not prefer a caked-on makeup look, but they tend to go wild for bright red lips! Basically: you should do your best to look healthy, well kept, and you should figure out the best ways to enhance the features you have. It sounds corny, but if you feel good about how you look, your confidence will shine through and confidence is a guy magnet!
Why this tip will get him to notice you: Guys are not only attracted to what they see, they are also attracted to what they smell! If you walk into a room looking like a supermodel, but smelling like a dumpster, it is suffice to say that you will not be noticed for the reasons you want to be noticed. While wearing too much perfume is unattractive to guys, a few sprays of something that smells delicious is sure to get him to notice you. While all perfumes wear differently depending on your skin’s natural scent, research suggests that scents like vanilla, pumpkin pie, cinnamon, and fruit are the most likely to get him to notice you in a good way!
3Smile and Laugh
Why this tip will get him to notice you: When you enter a party, don’t you want to befriend the group of people laughing and smiling more than the group of people sulking in a corner? People are attracted to people who are having fun and this very same rule applies when you’re trying to get a guy to notice you. Even though magazines and billboards seem to suggest that the “mysterious” and “sultry” look are desirable, a guy isn’t interested in wasting time breaking down a girl’s walls to try to make her crack a smile. Even if he thinks the mysterious vibe is interesting for a second, his attention will not be held for long. This is because guys tend to be attracted to the girl who looks like she is fun and has the wit and social skills to make her friends crack up in laughter! Having said all this, fake laughing is the worst, so don’t try to make a scene laughing theatrically because he will definitely notice you…but he’ll peg you as the girl who has the terrible laugh!
Why this tip will get him to notice you: You know that feeling you get when someone is looking at you? Well, he gets that too! If there’s a guy you want to notice you, try looking at him every once in a while. At some point your eyes will meet and you’ll feel some magic happen if he’s interested. To check if he’s noticed you, try this flirty move: Make eye contact with him and hold it for 1-2 seconds. Then, scan the room for a couple seconds and return your eyes to him. If he’s still looking at you, see what he does next. If he averts his eyes for a second and then returns them to look at you again, he’s definitely noticed you and he’s more than likely interested! If his eyes don’t return to you, he’s noticed you, but he’s either too shy to return eye contact or he may not be interested. Keeping all this in mind, we definitely recommend that you avoid staring at him intensely and frequently because if you do this he may think you are a creepy stalker or something!
5Be Near Him
Why this tip will get him to notice you: Situate yourself so that you are within the range of people he will see if he scans his surroundings. Don’t follow him around the room, but try to position yourself so that he sees you as often as possible. The more times he sees you, the more times he will subconsciously think about you which increases the odds that he will consciously notice you and become curious about you. Assuming that you followed the other tips of looking your best, smelling awesome, looking fun, and making flirty eye contact, being near him is the deal cincher that will ensure that he notices you! Just like with the eye contact tip, we definitely want to emphasize that this tip requires you to be smart about how much you do it. You really want to avoid giving the impression that you are following him around because that will probably creep him out and make him notice you for all the wrong reasons.
