So you are interested in that charming guy, and you want to pique his interest.
First, answer these questions honestly: Are you wondering what he’s thinking? Are you thinking, how do I get him to pursue me? Or even, how do I get him to propose?
One thing’s for sure, if that’s what goes through your mind when you meet someone you like, you’ll most definitely scare him off. So chill, and enjoy your encounters without any hidden agenda.
Here are 5 ways to get a man’s interest and attention:
1) Be Confident: The first thing is to like yourself. Confidence is the key to being attractive. Be comfortable with who you are. Know your strengths and weaknesses. Take a credible personality profile test; it can help you understand your traits better and create room for you to improve. Understand what are your interests and what activities you enjoy doing. There is no need to pretend to be someone whom you are not. Men like women who know themselves well, and are secure about themselves.
2) Be Friendly: Initiate the conversation if he hasn’t got around to doing that. Someone has to and it really doesn’t matter who takes the first step. How else would he know you exist? The key here is to be friendly, not desperate. Approach him with the right mindset, which is that you are keen to know more people and build friendships, and not that your priority is to hunt down your potential spouse. Smile, chat, and be thoughtful. Men like to know that women are detailed and caring.
3)Be Daring: In relation to the first two attributes, you should try to conquer your comfort zone. That means, if you are out for a party or an event, try to meet new people — guys for that matter. If you want men to notice you, then you have to be proactive. Don’t sulk in the corner or, worse, spend the whole night with your girl friends. If you are out with a group, take part in the fun. So long you are genuinely enjoying yourself, and not putting up a show, people will notice you.
4) Be Attractive: Men are visual creatures, and physical appearance counts. Truth is, you only have the first five seconds to make it work. You do not have to look like a supermodel to get a man’s interest, but you should know how to dress well and appropriately. Learn how to enhance your looks with a trendy hairstyle, tasteful dressing, appropriate makeup. A toned physique helps, no matter what size you are. When in doubt, seek help! Get advice from trusted friends who are skilled in these areas. Don’t fall for old clichés like, “A guy should like me for who I am, not how I dress”. Inner beauty withstands the test of time in a relationship, but outer beauty gets the relationship started.
5) Be Realistic: Not all couples fall madly in love at first sight. Many strong marriages are the result of friendships built under natural circumstances. Don’t ignore a guy just because he doesn’t fall within your definition of Prince Charming. Don’t dismiss someone because he does not look like Brad Pitt. Beyond sheer looks, a man’s heart and character are the things that will go the distance in your relationship.
So take charge of your life and shake off old mindsets. Manage your expectations well. Have an open heart and mind, and you never know who you will meet…
