If you’re daydreaming about his built body and glowing grin in between classes, here are a few of the top ways to make your crush like you. With these tips, you’ll say goodbye to the friend zone for good.
Let’s explore the top ways to make your crush like you that maybe you haven’t tried yet!
1. Be yourself
When looking for ways to make your crush like you, it can be tempting to alter your personality to fit what you believe your special guy is searching for. Don’t give in!
Not only will it look and feel unnatural to go from class clown to prim and proper overnight, but it can also drive him away. So, show off your true self –even if the person you’re crushing on doesn’t realize how amazing you are, someone else will.
When you act like yourself, you’ll be relaxed, calm, and happy, and your crush will see all of this and want it. Plus, when they finally do reciprocate your feelings, they’ll actually like you for you and not who you’re pretending to be.
2. Talk to them
Again, with the creepy watching from a distance. Get up and go talk to them. They need to know who you are and talk to you from time to time in order to decide if they like you or not. Talk to them about their interests and hobbies, and also give them some information about yourself. Open up to them and let them get to know you!
3. Don’t tell them you like them
If you have a crush on someone and you don’t see this person reciprocating just yet, don’t make it obvious that you’ve fallen for them already. If your crush knows you like them and they don’t even know you, their ego will swell and they’ll take you for granted. And they won’t care about you!
4. Be flirty
As an amazingly awkward gal, I know it can be hard to turn up the heat. But even a cutesy wave hello or an ‘accidental’ nudge in the hallway could turn you into the girl he can’t stop thinking about. If your efforts are fruitful, take it up a notch by planning a study date or asking for his phone number…for homework purposes, of course!
5. Show off your kind side
Don’t be cocky or arrogant while trying to catch your crush’s attention. Meanness is a trait both genders dislike to see in a prospective mate. If your crush assumes you’re mean, you’d lose a big chance of dating them. Be helpful to people, and be friendly, especially when your crush is around.
6. Use humor
I’m not saying you need to be the next great comedian, but humor is one way to make your crush like you. And if the two of you manage to create your own inside jokes, it’s only a matter of time before he takes that fall.
7. Subtly show them you’re interested
Don’t make a huge spectacle of it, but drop subtle hints that you’re interested in them. A great way to do this is to make comments that suggest it. If they ask if you’ll be at a certain event, reply by saying, “Only if you’re going.” Perhaps add a sly smile to pique their interest.
This will show them that you want to be where they are and are uninterested in anyone else being around. As long as they’re there, you want to be there, too.
8. Join in on their interests
If you’re invited to tag along on some fun hobby of theirs with a group, you’d better go! You should always join in on things that they find interesting and even take an interest in them, yourself—but only if it’s a genuine new interest. Whether it’s sports, music, or Converse sneakers, figure out what makes him tick.
9. Let your personality out
Yes, your dorky, weird, awesome self has to come out of the overbearing shell you’ve got it trapped in if you really want to get your crush to like you. Your personality is what makes you likeable in the first place.
Surprisingly, those little quirks are what someone is going to like the most about you. So, let them out and don’t hold back if you really want your crush to start crushing on you.
10. Make friends with their friends
This part is crucial. If you want to get them to like you, start being friends with their friends. When you’ve got their friends talking about how awesome you are, they won’t be able to help themselves: they’ll start seeing you in a whole new light.
11. Make them jealous
Nothing brings out hidden feelings more than making someone jealous. A lot of people may not even realize they have feelings for you… until they feel jealous. It’s often the first emotion that’s present before they realize you’re special to them.
