Girls talk – advice on how to attract the man you like
Let's face it, men can be hard to read. It's important to avoid playing mind games, but if there's a guy you're eyeing, there are ways catch his attention. Here are some tips and tricks from relationship and matchmaking experts that can help you get a man to focus his attention on you.
A man is going to notice a woman who is having a good time and relaxing. Stay away from hiding yourself in the corner, with furniture or plants. It's important to find something useful to do wherever you are whether it's chiming in on a group conversation or deftly maneuvering your way to the bar because guys will notice you're being active, and not trying to play hide and seek. As s as this sounds, men really like being helpful.
Open up about a challenging situation at work or ask him for an app recommendation. Talk about little things you do, like keeping fresh flowers at home, doing yoga, reading a book every week, or getting a good night's sleep, said Emily Holmes Hahn, founder of LastFirst bespoke matchmaking club. They might seem inificant, but any of a "centered and balanced lifestyle" is encouraging, she said.
Guys don't understand fashion trends, so save your off-the-shoulder, ruffled crop top for a girl's night. The best way to catch a man's eye is to wear something timeless — a classic outfit that is comfortable and you know works for you. Both Tessina and Hahn recommend some classic, direct eye contact.
2. don't hide in the corner
But don't stare them down, either. Some friendly eye to eye will let him know you're interested, so don't be afraid to eye-flirt across the room! If a man compliments something you're wearing, you shouldn't name drop the brand, because you might come off as materialistic. The same goes for food and drink locations; even if you go to the coolest bars and restaurants, you should talk about more under the radar spots.
You'll have a more interesting chat by being quirky, as opposed to appearing to know it all. Tessina advises against surrounding yourself with a "gaggle of girls" when going out. You'll be hard to single out if you're in a group. If you do go out in a group, try to stand out from the crowd or find a way to get by yourself for a bit.
Make it clear you have something appealing about you by commenting on the conversation the guy you have your eye on is having; show off your brains and personality, not just your looks. It turns out men actually get annoyed when women don't say thank you, according to Lori Zaslow and Jenn Zucher, founders of the matchmaking company Project Soulmate.
You don't even have to say it in person — grab his and text it after he buys you a drink.
Avoid these 6 mistakes. It's a small world, and while your head is down Instagraming your oysters, you could be meeting someone that's right next to you.
Even if you're in the elevator, make an effort to not look at your phone and see who is around. It's refreshing for a guy to see a woman that's not glued to Snapchat or taking a selfie.
Bring a book to read at the bar. Guys are looking for a reason to come up to you, said Emma Tessler, founder of the matchmaking company The Dating Ring, so give him a unique one. If reading's not your thing, bring a sketchbook, journal or whatever hobby you have that you can take to-go.
How to attract the man you like
Men will want to approach you with a comment or question, so if you're wearing something eye catching and shiny, he'll be able to use that as a conversation opener. Wear your biggest ring or most interesting earrings and hit two birds with one stone by having a cute accessory for your outfit and drawing someone in for a conversation. IE 11 is not supported.
