Keep Your Thoughts Zen ...

Don't, dramatic.,, Guys like girls that they can understand. I don't mean dumb yourself down, but rather un-complicate things when you can. Don't play head games and don't turn everything into an episode of Oprah. If a guy thinks you're too much trouble it will be very difficult to get them to like you.


Be Yourself (the Real One) ...

MikeA, person, facial expression, emotion, profession, Everyone hands out this piece of advice; yet it is the one that you ladies seem to ignore the most. Don't be who you think the guy wants you to be, just be yourself. Guys can see right through the fake bit, and if you are attracted to the type of man who wants a phony then you might want to reevaluate your standards.

Don’t Be Afraid of Letting Your Hair down ...

InIIIMIIIIIII, Now this one can be a little specific depending on the man, but in general (myself included) we like women who are not afraid to get a bit dirty. If it's summertime and you invite a guy to go hiking with you, for the love of god wear a T-shirt not a tube top. Repeat after me, lip gloss is okay for outdoor activities lipstick is not. Know the difference.

You Have a Brain, Use It ...

You're, beautiful, and, smart, but, If I have to date one more woman whose depth of conversation only includes celebrity gossip I may need to reevaluate my gender preference. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to attract a man, but you do need to at least have something of value to say. If you're interested in sports, that's great; politics, even better. Just remember number two, say what you want to say not what you think he wants you to say.

Look Good when You Need to ...

person, blond, woman, mouth, profession, Thus far I’ve avoided the superficial route; but let's face it, if you want to get a guy to like you you're probably going to need to appeal to his visual instincts. Now before you get the torches, I'm not saying dress like a whore; rather just know how to make yourself look nice when you go out whether it's to the movies, a club or just when you go shopping.

Be Aggressive, B-E Aggressive ...

person, singing, profession, know, what, Look, that shrinking violet thing you women like to do sometimes? It's not cute. The majority of men are not under the delusion that they are hunters of women. This is some inside information here, so pay attention. All that stuff you've seen in the movies or read in books about how men like to be the aggressors in a relationship and make the first move… it's all crap.

Most men are just as stressed out about getting you to like them as you are about getting them to like you. So if you like a guy, grow a pair and make the first move. An assertive female is a turn on for lots of men, and at the end of the day you'll be saving a ton of time that would have otherwise been spent trying to get him to notice you.

I really like this guy and he's a year younger than me so he's a seventh grader and I'm not sure if he likes me :( when I first saw him in weight training at school he looked at me ALOT now he doesn't too often but I mean he still does it.. He talks to me most the time but I think he might like one of my other seventh grade friends but she doesn't like him... He gives me high fives and smiles at me occasionally. I asked for his number yesterday and we've been talking allll day but I still don't know if he likes me what do I do? (I have 6th hr PE with him)

So I rlly like this older guy that's is in the grade above me! But he is new and I was getting a little overly obsessed and wrote poems about him and stuff... Then this idiot boy in my class tells him! I was stirring right next to them and I put my face in my hands and silently crying .... He new I was crying to! But now I'm pretending I don't like him but I do and he thinks I wierd! What do i do to stop him from thinking that? Plz help

I am in the 6th grade and theres this really cute guy and i eant him to like me and i hae been trying to find a way to be that but bein myself isnt working fast enough

i would try to talk to him but, i dont think he would tell me the truth. when my friend asked him what he thought of me he wouldnt reply with a straight answer. i think he is either shy or he doesent want to say wat he really thinks of me cuz its bad.

Hey people! so... i like this guy not because of his looks but 4 his personality and earlier i sent in a comment about how he didn't want to be involved with crushes n' stuff but now when we were in a conversation he said that he liked this girl and she's a girl from one of those "popular" groups... and I don't really know what to do... He said that no one likes him ... but i do and i highly doubt that the girl he likes likes him back because of the way she is and the people she hangs out with. He's super short and he gets embarrassed about a lot of things and I know how that feels, but i don't really know if I should still keep trying or if I should give up... Help Please!

hi im friends with the guy that i like but i feel like he only likes me like a friend but some people think he likes me how can i find out if he does lkke me without him finding out i like him.
