Getting a boyfriend when you’re shy can be difficult. Confidence is important to get a guy interested in you, but not always necessary. Some boy probably already thinks you are cool or cute and you just don’t know it yet. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself, and instead focus on living your life; a boy will follow if that’s what you want.
1. Work on your inner confidence
One of the easiest ways for shy girls to get guys to notice them is to flaunt your confidence. You don’t have to be an extrovert to be confident, there is a way to harness your inner confidence whilst still remaining faithful to your shy nature. Honouring your own boundaries and having courage in your conviction, even if your own conviction is not as wild as other girls, will attract the attention of a guy who is looking for someone more demure. Not all men want a party girl.
2. Make him notice you
Be a bit sneaky, and try to make it so you end up standing next to him in a line, or sitting next to him in class/at work. Use little opportunities to be around him until you get the chance to make a conversation. If you know you’re going to be close to someone you like the day before, plan on wearing something eye catching like a red dress, or a new hair style.
3. Smile and work the eye contact
Stare at him now and then and let him catch you staring. Eye contact is the simplest and easiest way to let a guy know you’re interested in him. Exchange a few glances now and then, but never overdo it.
4. Dress to impress
It’s been said that women dress to appease other women. But when you’re single, attracting men should be a priority. There are plenty of nice outfits for both day and night that would be perfect for the office and that late evening happy hour as well.
5. Be sensual in your moves
After a few hidden glances, blush or act coy when he catches your eye. Look away and just smile to no one in particular. Have a relaxed posture, and don’t be too jumpy or active. Stare at him now and then while delicately playing with a pen or a glass of wine.
6. Show charm and grace
These are traits that really stand out in a woman because they’re not taught in schools or homes anymore. There are some men that love to have a beautiful woman on their arms who is also well versed in proper etiquette. He’ll always think of you when he is invited to upscale events.
7. Wear sexy heels
Heels make you have good posture because it forces you to have your back straight and shoulders back. It also makes your legs and your figure look incredible. (Maybe that’s why we girls bust our butts to buy those stilettos?)
8. Take pride in your femininity
Men fall head over heels for women who know how to use their feminine wiles. Again, showing confidence in yourself as a woman is a turn-on to most men.
9. Act bored
Guys would be intimidated to approach a girl who seems busy. If you want him to make a move on you, play around with some object, act idle or pretend like you’re bored. It sends the right signals to let him know you’re waiting for him to make a move.
10. Be a fun girl
Guys are always attracted to girls who are the life of the party. When you’re hanging out with your own friends, have fun with them. When he sees that you’re a hot girl who also has a lot of fun, there’s little reason for him to overlook you.
11. Be seen in the same places
Bump into him now and then, be it at the cafeteria or at the gym. You can use the tips to attract a guy at first sight, but there’s no necessity to talk to him. Just draw his attention and let him miss you when you aren’t around.
