Wondering how to get a guy’s attention when you see him for the first time?

In most cases, it’s the guy who walks up to the girl and starts a conversation with her. Try these subtle moves to let him know that you’re interested in him and open to talk with him.

#1 Smile and work the eye contact. Stare at him now and then and let him catch you staring. Eye contact is the simplest and easiest way to let a guy know you’re interested in him. Exchange a few glances now and then, but never overdo it.

#2 Play with yourself. When we’re attracted to someone, we instinctively start feeling touchy feely. It’s one of the subtle ways to let someone know you’re attracted to them. Play with your hair, show off your slender neck and your cleavage by tilting your head back now and then.

#3 Reveal your curves. Irrespective of where you are, try to show off your curves. Men are visual and after the face, your curvaceous body is the next thing he’s going to notice. [Read: 20 things about a girl that turns a guy on instantly]

#4 Blush and act coy. After a few hidden glances, blush or act coy when he catches your eye. Look away and just smile to no one in particular.

#5 Be sensual in your moves. Have a relaxed posture, and don’t be too jumpy or active. Stare at him now and then while delicately playing with a pen or a glass of wine.

#6 Act bored. Guys would be intimidated to approach a girl who seems busy. If you want him to make a move on you, play around with some object, act idle or pretend like you’re bored. It sends the right signals to let him know you’re waiting for him to make a move.

#7 Replicate his behavior. This helps create the connection even if both of you are sitting far away from each other. If you find him shuffling his collar because of the heat, fan yourself with your hands to let him know you’re feeling hot too. Learn to build the connection by replicating each other’s behavior.

#8 Create opportunities for him. Not all guys have the man pebbles to make a move on a girl at first sight. So help him out by giving him more opportunities to talk to you. Walk by him alone when you’re going to the ladies room, graze against him at the counter and apologize with a sweet smile, etc. [Read: How to flirt without really flirting]


If you bump into this guy every now and then, either at the workplace or in class, here are all the tips you need to attract his attention and make him like you.

#1 Look good and dress well. We don’t need to repeat this, but men are completely visual when it comes to attraction at first sight. They love women in heels and women who dress in a manner that makes a guy’s jaw drop. Try it, but don’t be vulgar.

#2 Be a fun girl. Guys are always attracted to girls who are the life of the party. When you’re hanging out with your own friends, have fun with them. When he sees that you’re a hot girl who also has a lot of fun, there’s little reason for him to overlook you.

#3 Be seen in the same places. Bump into him now and then, be it at the cafeteria or at the gym. You can use the tips to attract a guy at first sight, but there’s no necessity to talk to him. Just draw his attention and let him miss you when you aren’t around.

#4 Be warm and approachable. Flash a discreet smile when you walk past him or bump into him at some new place. He may just be scared to make a move, so avoid seeming intimidating when you bump into him. [Read: How to talk to any guy and make him like you]

#5 Give him chances to talk to you. Sit next to his table if you can, or walk near him if there’s an excuse. Let him know that you’re interested in him, but don’t ever overdo it by constantly trying to run into him.

#6 Ask him for help. If he’s just not making a move at you, spark his chivalrous side. Drop a few books or sheets of paper when he walks past you, or ask him for something when he walks past you like a pen. It’ll give him the perfect excuse to start a conversation with you.

Getting a guy’s attention and making him like you back is easy when you already know him. You don’t have to rely on stares and awkward first conversations. But there are a few things you have to remember.

#1 Take things slow. Don’t get overexcited because you’re on talking terms now. Don’t seem desperate and don’t blow your trumpet about your single status and how you’re looking high and low for someone to fall in love with. Have interesting conversations and let him realize how much of a catch you are.

#2 Keep in touch with him. Once you’re on talking terms, get connected through social networks and keep in touch occasionally by dropping a few comments on his page. But if you see that he’s not responding on facebook or twitter, back away for a while until he shows an interest in you.

#3 Be mysterious. Make him want to know more about you. Arouse his curiosity by telling him a few things about yourself that will make him want to ask more questions about you. Talk about your interests and hobbies, but don’t reveal all. Talking about your weekend spa trip or regular massage session can seem harmless, but it’ll make him think of you in the nude. Add in a few pointers that can awe him or make him desire you. [Read: Tips to seduce a guy who’s not yours]

#4 Seem compatible. Don’t disagree on too many things right from the beginning. You may have a few differences with his opinions, but unless it’s a little nothing, don’t pick an argument with him. He wants a partner who’s compatible, not one who’ll constantly pick flaws with his logic.

#5 Don’t be rude. While a guy may take it as a challenge to impress a girl who disagrees with him, no guy would like a girl who rolls her eyes at him or puts him down often. Don’t be too strong headed or look for ways to prove your point, just to make him realize that you’re smart and confident.

#6 Seem available. Drop a few hints now and then to let him know you’re interested in him, but don’t overdo it. Find ways and create conversations to let him know you’re single and have a few free weekends. Make him wonder if you really like him and his curiosity will make him fall in love with you.

#7 Play hard to get. Once you drop a few hints to let him know that you like him, start playing hard to get to make him instinctively chase you. Give him a chance to see how desirable you are and he may do all he can to win your attention back. [Read: The right way to make him chase you]

#8 Make him fall in love with you. You’ve got his attention and you’ve let him know that you’re interested in him. So what are you waiting for, make him fall in love with you!

To win over a guy, just use these simple tips on how to get a guy’s attention and you’ll see how easy it can be to make any guy want you and desire you in no time!
