For some guys, they’re so overconfident they think every girl wants them to make a move. For others, they have absolutely no clue when a girl even likes them. They’re both really frustrating but clueless guys are probably even more difficult to deal with than cocky ones. Which means you’ll want to know how to create sexual tension with a guy so he’ll actually make a move.

Because otherwise, how will he know? If you like a guy who’s really unaware that he should make a move, you need to thicken the air between the two of you so he gets the hint. But that’s not quite as easy as it sounds.

Why are some guys just so completely clueless?

There are very few men who can tell when a woman likes him and the exact moment he should make a move. A large majority of guys have been told to wait for permission and they thought that means to wait until a woman tells them what to do.

While they always need permission, it doesn’t have to be as obvious as that. So these guys don’t actually know how to read the signs that a girl wants him to make a move. Instead, they sit back and wait for her to tell him, which doesn’t often happen. [Read: How to show a guy you actually like him]

How to create sexual tension with a guy so he’ll make a move already

When he sees that you’ve made a point to draw him in sexually, he’ll understand what you want him to do. But making that sexual tension grow naturally can be a little difficult. Luckily, we can help.

#1 Close the distance between the two of you. You need to get close. Sexual tension can’t be created from far away. You need to be able to get close and really build a bubble around the two of you.

So just scoot up closer to him. If you’re sitting too far apart, make up an excuse and get closer. This can most easily be done if you just get up to use the restroom and come back to sit right next to him. It’s not as noticeable and you’ll be able to get a lot closer than if you just scooted over a bit. [Read: How to get a shy guy to like you and ask you out]

#2 Turn on your flirtatious charm. Flirting is essential. If you’re not even flirting with someone, how can you show them you like them? A guy needs to know you’re into him and the best way for that is flirting.

Once he sees that you’re trying to flirt, that sexual tension with skyrocket. It’ll be like a switch turning on. Sit close and start making some flirty moves and he’ll definitely sense that you want him to go for it.

#3 Draw attention to your lips. Your lips are more powerful than you think. If you can get a guy thinking about your lips, he’ll think about kissing you. When he’s thinking about kissing you, the sexual tension will increase significantly.

You can do this easily by biting your lip or even just touching your lips casually while resting your hand near your face. Now matter how he starts thinking about your lips, it’ll be enough to create sexual tension. [Read: Why lip biting is scientifically really sexy]

#4 Laugh at his jokes. Guys love to think they’re funny. If they notice you laughing at their jokes, they’ll think you like them. And when they think you like them, they’ll immediately start thinking about you in a more intimate way.

Those thoughts will automatically change his behavior to be more sensual. He’ll start leaning in closer, flirting with you a lot more, and eventually, it’ll lead to him making a move.

#5 Lower your voice. Not only does lowering the pitch of your voice increase the sexual tension but being quieter does, too. It gives the space between you a sensual vibe and requires him to move in closer to hear you. When he’s that close to you and you’re speaking in such a low voice, it thickens the air with that sexual tension and he’ll make a move in no time. [Read: How to be seductive and turn him on]

#6 Initiate physical contact. Touching someone in a suggestive way will definitely make them start looking at you sexually. If you just can’t seem to get a guy to understand you want him to make a move through flirting or any other means, touch him.

You can easily make this sexy by sliding your hand over his thigh when he makes a joke. This placement is really forward and it’s a move that should definitely be in your arsenal if you want to know how to create sexual tension with a guy.

#7 Flaunt what you’ve got. Guys are very visual. If you want to get that sexual tension rippling through the air, show a little skin. You don’t have to dress provocatively to do this, though. Just unbutton the top of your blouse, hike your dress or skirt up a little bit when you sit and show them what you’ve got. When they get sight of all you have, they’ll definitely want to make a move.
