Has anyone caught your eye lately? Do you get insomnia thinking about that person all night and spend all day dreaming about your first date?
You probably can’t concentrate at school or work because that person keeps popping into your mind. The problem is, you’re not sure if all these distractions are worth it, as this person might not feel the same way about you.
Falling in love with someone can give you headaches – not just headaches – especially if your crush doesn’t even know you exist.
You get butterflies in your stomach whenever you see him, but he doesn’t even look at you. So disappointing and off-putting, isn’t it?
Instead of waiting for anything, why not try to find out if there’s any chance your crush will like you. I’m not saying that you talk about your feelings or make it clear to that person, because that might make them push you away. Hmm.. maybe you can help him a little to notice you.
Here are 10 smart ways to do it:
10 smart ways to make your crush notice you
1. Always be beautiful.
Physical appearance is not everything to look at when you like someone. But, you and I both know it’s the first thing that catches the attention of humans. That’s why, if you want your crush to notice you, being physically attractive can be the first step.
You don’t need to wear attractive clothes, bulky accessories, lots of makeup and expensive shoes. Simplicity makes a good impression, so don’t go overboard. What you need to do is do your best by being presentable, clean and showing off your features.
An example could be letting your hair down if you have long, beautiful hair. Wearing red is also attractive, especially if you have fair skin.
2. Irresistible smell.
You don’t have to look like Elle Fanning to be attractive. Your scent can play a big role in getting your crush’s attention. Use your favorite perfume or cologne to smell fresh and clean.
But, make sure that the scent of your cologne or perfume is not too strong, as it can annoy the people around you, including the person you care about.
3. Always have a smile.
In this world full of stress and pressure, a bright disposition can be an attractive asset. People are attracted to those who have a positive outlook on life despite bad situations – and the best way to show this is through a constant smile.
Whenever you’re down and someone smiles at you, you feel better, right? And you have that feeling of gratitude for that person. So who knows? Smiling at your crush can actually help him develop that friendly feeling for you – this is a good start.
4. Have something to impress.
Physical attractiveness is not everything. You must own something more than it seems. So find out what you are good at and strive to excel at it. This will make a good impression of how interesting you are as a person.
For example, if you’re good at painting, why not participate or have your own exhibition? Or if you play instruments, you can be in a band or perform at events. You can also participate in workshops that can help you hone your talents or skills.
5. Be his friend.
Friendship is the best foundation for a good relationship. So if you want to break up with your crush, do yourself a favor by making friends with that person. Not only will this help you get noticed, but it will also give you a good chance of getting to know him better.
To be friends with your crush, you must have the courage to say “hello”, offer help if needed, or be part of the same group or organization. Be as natural as possible when acting to avoid being obvious.
6. Discover your interests.
If you want to start an intelligent conversation with your crush, you need to find out what he’s interested in. You may even find that you have the same interests. When you talk about something you have in common, it creates connection and interest in each other.
This will also help him avoid topics you don’t like. Talking about these things will bore him and create the impression that you are a boring companion.
7. Show sincere concern and interest in the person.
If you want your crush to be interested in you, you need to show that you genuinely care about them too. When he speaks, listen carefully and have the right reactions. Asking questions about what he’s talking about will give the impression that you’re genuinely interested.
When chatting, put your cell phone in your purse or pocket to avoid getting distracted. Make sure your eyes don’t distract from him, but maintain eye contact with him for full attention.
8. Give praise and appreciation.
Be generous when thanking your crush. Appreciate himself in the little things. This will make the person feel worthy. In return, he will feel grateful to you too.
Make good comments about your crush’s appearance (but please don’t show it too much, as you’ll be obvious). Thank him for little things too.
9. Play mysteriously.
Don’t throw yourself at his feet. Don’t share anything about yourself unless he asks you to. Revealing everything about yourself will take the emotion out of the knowledge stage, and he may think you’re too eager to reveal yourself to him.
Also, avoid posting very personal thoughts and feelings on social media. Your crush and everyone else might think your life is an open book.
10. Don’t show that you’re losing your mind.
It’s bad for most people when they find out that someone likes them so much – especially if that person already does stupid things just to be seen. As soon as the person you like finds out that you have a huge crush on them, they may lose respect for you.
So keep calm, because guys don’t like girls who are easy to pick up. So be careful with your actions.
If you are still a student, I suggest you focus on your studies first. Having a crush can be fun and can even inspire you to do better in school. But if you take it too seriously, you might just get hurt and it will affect your grades and performance. That would be awful.
Anyway, I hope I helped, see you soon!
