23 Ways to Get a Guy to Notice You at School ...

You’ve seen a cute boy at school, but he doesn’t seem to know you exist. What can you do? Here are 23 trusted pointers to attract his attention...

1. Personal Hygiene ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

While it might seem silly, if you don’t have good personal hygiene, you’ll attract attention for all the wrong reasons. Check out how to ensure yours is up to scratch, and make sure that you regularly shower and wash your clothes. It can be easy to forget this at school! It’s also worth looking at the ranges of deodorant available, as some, such as Aquolina come in gorgeous bottles, perfect for school bags, and have a mesmerising smell!

2. Take Advantage of Your Surroundings ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you’re in the lunch line, ask him about his favourite food, or if you’re in the gym, talk sports. Keep the conversations light and on topic, and don’t drag them on. This will give you several chances to talk to him each day, and definitely put you on his radar. Click here for some tips on how to talk to anyone.

3. Guys like a Chase ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

While you may feel like shortening your skirt and chewing your pencil, guys much prefer having a chase. Be less obvious, and he’ll soon be wondering why.

4. Lend Him Things ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Make sure you have the equipment you need for each subject, and be around in case he needs things. For example, lend him a pencil or ruler in Geography, and he’ll have to bring it back to you. This’ll create another opportunity for conversation, and guys love organized girls.

5. Question, Comment, Compliment ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

When I was at school, I was a hopeless flirt. My saving grace was my best friend, who came up with the QCC style of flirting. For example, if you’re waiting for lunch, ask him what he thinks of the chicken. Comment on how nice it looks, and then compliment him in some way as you walk away. Do this a few times, and he’ll be hooked.

6. Know when It’s Okay to Lie ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

While it’s important to be honest about your feelings, when it comes down to finding his friend hot or hating his mum’s cooking, it’s better to tell a little white lie. He’ll appreciate you shielding his feelings.

7. Humour Him ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Watching the game at lunch time? Cheer when his team scores. While you might not actually care, it’ll make him feel great, and it’s always good to share some interests. Who knows, you might actually enjoy it! I used to hate football, but after attending a few matches with my boyfriend, I’m now an expert in positions and tactics.

8. Talk to His Friends ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

One of the most important things to a guy at school is his friends. If you can build up friendships with them, he’ll be much more relaxed about making you his girlfriend, as he’ll know they already like you and that you’d fit in well. Check out how to make friends, for some tips on how to get close to them.

9. Have Some Confidence!

(Your reaction) Thank you!

No one will notice you if you hide yourself in the shadows, so make sure that you have some confidence in yourself. Give yourself a makeover, or go out with friends, and boost your self esteem.

10. Be Yourself!

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This one is one of the most important. Make sure that whatever you do, you don’t neglect who you really are.

11. Use Eye Contact

(Your reaction) Thank you!

The best way to flirt is with your eyes. If he's across the room from you, make sure to establish eye contact. You don't want to creep him out by staring for too long, but it helps to glance over occasionally.

12. Actually Approach Him

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you want a guy to know that you exist, walk right up to him and introduce yourself. Even if you've never spoken before, there's no reason for you to keep quiet. You go to the same school, after all. There are plenty of things you can talk about without feeling awkward.

13. Sit near Him

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you have the same lunch period, sit at his table. If you have a class with him, sit somewhere close so you can talk easily. You obviously don't want to look like you're stalking him, but it's not a bad idea to keep him close.

14. Plan a Group Outing

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you're too shy to ask him out one on one, invite a bunch of people in your class to hang out. Once you do, you can start up a conversation with him and pull off to the side. If your really hit it off, you two can leave together to have fun somewhere else.

15. Participate in Class

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you're too shy to talk to him, at least try to be brave enough to raise your hand in class. If you do, then he has to notice you. Just try not to let the fact that he's in the room make you too nervous to speak.

16. Volunteer to Help

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you hear him say that he's struggling with his homework, tell him that you'd be willing to help him out. If he can't throw a football in gym class, you can help him with that as well. Volunteer whenever you can.

17. Always Be Positive

(Your reaction) Thank you!

School can be a depressing place, but try to remain positive. You never know when he's eavesdropping on your conversation, so don't be a mean gossip with your friends when he's nearby. You don't want him to judge you for it.

18. Dress to Impress

(Your reaction) Thank you!

You can't wear a little black dress to class, but you can still look fabulous. You don't have to wear skimpy clothes. Just wear something that shows off your figure and displays all of your best assets. That's sure to get his attention.

19. Jump into Conversations

(Your reaction) Thank you!

When you're talking loudly in a classroom full of people, it's not weird for classmates to jump into your conversation. It's not like it's private. So if you hear him talking about the latest episode of your favorite television show with his best friend, join in.

20. Perfect Perfume

(Your reaction) Thank you!

A good scent can be just as alluring as good looks. Find a delicious smelling perfume that isn't overpowering. You don't want him to be able to smell it from across the halls. But you do want him to wish for more when he walks right past you.

21. Be in His Line of Sight

(Your reaction) Thank you!

You don't want to figure out his schedule and stalk him, but if you notice him across the hall, try to walk the same way. The more you walk past him, the better. After a while, he's sure to pay attention to you.

22. Join His Group

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Are you semi-friendly with one of his friends? Well that person may be your way to win your crush's heart. Try getting closer to his friends so that your crush will only hear good things about you from them.

23. Smile at Him

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Making eye contact isn't always enough. The next time he looks at you, make sure to smile at him. It'll make you look even more beautiful than you already are!

So now he knows you exist, flirt with him for a while, and see what happens. Keep smiling, and you’ll attract attention just for being you. Have you got a tip for attracting attention, or did you have a high school romance? Please share them with me!
