If a guy likes you and sees you flirting with another guy, his jealously will make him desire you more and try harder to please you. But then, there is a thin line between making him love you more and making him hate you for the way you treat him.

There are many ways to make a guy jealous. Some are cute, but most of them are just wicked.

Depending on your relationship status with the guy, here are a few things you can do to make him jealous and take notice of you.


Are you dating a guy who’s not really asking you out or even bothered to find little ways and romantic gestures to please you? Perhaps, in all probability, he’s just having a fling or looking at you only as a pastime. [Read: 16 do’s and don’ts to make your boyfriend want you more than ever]

Use these tips on making a guy jealous if you feel like your relationship has no life or if you feel unwanted by your new boyfriend. If you want the magic of romance and chase in the relationship or if you want him to get more sexually attracted to you, you need to let him see that other guys treat you better, and that you’re getting a lot of attention from other guys too.

#1 Have a great life without him. If he cancels a date or makes any last minute plans, tell him you’re busy and hang out with your own friends. And when he calls you while you’re out with your own friends, don’t hang up after saying goodbye. Instead leave the phone on the table and let him overhear your fun conversations and bristle with rage for not being able to have a fun time with you.

#2 Speak highly of your ex. Bring some competition into the air by letting him know how great your ex was and how well he treated you so you can set a benchmark for him to beat. [Read: Tips to talk about past relationships the right way]

#3 Compliment other guys. If your guy doesn’t treat you well, compliment any guy friend for the smallest of gestures and talk about how sweet he is with your boyfriend. Your boyfriend will want the same attention too.

#4 Get touchy feely with your guy friends. Laugh a lot with your guy friends, play along with them and tease them. Get especially touchy feely while playfully posing for a photo or hugging goodbye in front of your man.

#5 Flirt on facebook. Getting a lot of attention on facebook from other guys could make your new boyfriend realize how desirable and wanted you are by everyone else.

#6 Ignore his calls now and then. Pretend like you’re busy and make him miss you. But look gorgeous every time you see him. He’ll be too mesmerized to stay angry, and yet, he’ll crave for you. [Read: Why do guys hate talking over the phone?]

#7 Let him know you’re getting attention. If another guy asks you out or flirts with you, let your new man know all about it. It’ll make him jealous, and it’ll also make him work hard to woo you and make you fall in love with him first. [Read: How to get any guy’s attention in no time]


Are you in a relationship for a while with a guy who either takes you for granted or gives more attention to other girls even when you’re around? [Read: Does your boyfriend give more attention to another girl?]

If your boyfriend only answers in monosyllables or treats you like a guy friend, or even if he has started to ignore you recently, here are a few things you can do to make him jealous and miss your presence.

#1 Get a guy best friend. Guy best friends are never good news for boyfriends. Boyfriends hate them. By getting a guy best friend, it’ll make your man hate your new BFF and make him feel insecure at the same time. [Read: Guy best friends are nothing but trouble]

#2 Appear mysterious. Don’t reveal too much about your plans to your boyfriend. Be vague in your answers and avoid having long conversations with him until he takes an interest in spending time with you.

#3 Hog the attention. Have a lot of fun with other guys, especially when you see your boyfriend walking towards you from a distance. And even if he comes close, just wave out to him and have a fun time with your own friends. If he can’t give you preferential treatment, why should you?!

#4 Be a subtle flirter. Flirt with other guys, but don’t overdo it. He may realize that you’re only trying to make him jealous if you overdo it. Or worse, he may think you’re a horny tramp. [Read: How to flirt subtly with a guy]

#5 Go out on a date. Go out for dinner with a cute guy, and even if your boyfriend asks about it, just tell him the truth like it’s no big deal. If your boyfriend doesn’t want to take you out, why is it a bad thing if some other guy wants to take you out?

#6 Let him know you don’t need him. Guys like being depended on. But behave like you don’t need him around because you have a lot of guy friends who can help you anyway. Ask your boyfriend for his help. But if he can’t help you, get another cute guy to help you and tell your boyfriend about how much fun you had with the other guy.


Now these are wicked moves, and you really should use them only if you want to get back at a guy for what he’s done to you.

If a guy’s hurt you and you want vengeance, or if you want to mess a guy’s mind for cheating on you and walking all over you, here are a few things you could do to piss him off to no end. [Read: Things to know if you’re jealous of your ex]

#1 Make him compete for your attention. Date other guys and let him know what you’re doing. And if asks, tell him the other guy’s just a friend.

#2 Don’t worry about getting caught. Let him spot you with another guy, when you’ve told him that you’re busy at work. And pretend like he’s the one making a big deal out of a little thing.

#3 Cozy up with another alpha male. Get close to the guy your boyfriend feels insecure about and flirt with him subtly, especially when your boyfriend’s around.

#4 Revealing clothes. Wear revealing clothes when you go out with other guys, but dress conservatively when you go partying with your own boyfriend.

#5 Flaunt a hickey. If you’ve just broken up with your boyfriend, hook up with someone and let your new ex see your hickey. [Read: How to hook up with a guy and do it the right way]

#6 Sleep with his friend. If you’ve broken up with your boyfriend, the best way to get back at him is by sleeping with his friend, preferably his best friend who’s a better guy.

#7 Sleep with the enemy. If you want to get even with your ex boyfriend, sleep with the one guy he hates. There’s no bigger way to make him furious.


Let’s face it, all these ways to make a guy jealous may seem fascinating and fun to read. And the best part, it works really well too. But making someone jealous comes at a price. And at most times, the more you try to make someone jealous, the more it may backfire on you. Here are a few things to keep in mind before you try these moves.

#1 He may give up and avoid you completely. Jealously is almost always a positive sign in love, but pushing the odds can turn all that love he has for you into hate. [Read: 10 annoying girlfriend habits guys hate]

#2 He may retaliate with his own moves or criticize you publicly.

#3 He may see through your game and realize what you’re up to.

#4 He may even take to competitive flirting or plot ways to get even with you.

#5 The tables may turn and you may end up being the loser. And you’d feel even more jealous and miserable if your ploy fails its purpose.

#6 It may lead to complications and you could end up losing your relationship and a few friends too. [Read: Ways to deal with a complicated relationship]

#7 You may end up in pain or resent the whole game halfway. You’d end up angry and confused.

#8 You may become obsessive, possessive and destructive in your pursuit to win this game of jealousy.

#9 You may get what you want. He could end up stalking you or becoming obsessive and violent.

#10 You may lose focus of what you want. If you truly believe the relationship has no future, it’s better to just let go and work on healing your scars instead of plotting revenge all the time, while living in a toxic relationship that could make both of you miserable and angry. [Read: How to break up with your boyfriend]

It’s never a bad thing to make a guy jealous, as long as it serves its purpose. All said and done, the fact that one of you can get jealous proves just one thing, that there’s love in the air. [Read: How to deal with jealousy in a relationship]

Use these tips on how to make a guy jealous only to win back his affection and interest. But as soon as things get better, stop making him jealous and work on ways to better the relationship instead.

    This article was very illuminating. Now, of course, making a guy jealous is not the greatest way to get a guy’s attention, but what the author shares here does make a valid point.


  2. Christina says:

    Most of these tips are awful… that’s what girls do couples break up so easily… I have a boyfriend and I should go out with someone else to make him jealous?? Are you serious? This is like cheating and he’d be right to break up with me after that…! And the other tip about complementing other guys to make him jealous… Do you even know anything of men psychology?! You want to break his self-esteem and hurt him? He will go and find someone else who compliments him instead of other guys and then you’ll be crying for that….! Women and girls that act like this always end up having their relationship broken… It isn’t unexpected when magazines and websites give them advice like these….

  3. Kaylin says:

    This somewhat helped but the guy I like he is with another girl and I thought about it if he flirts with me like he does than I better make sure I know if he actually likes me so I decided to see if he got jealous with a guy a friend of mine, because the guy I like he’s always staring at me in speech and sometimes he’ll be smiling and when he walks in to class he’ll always try to get someway to talk to me and when we were in a group assignment he would always help me even when I didn’t ask so he might like me he might not oh well

  4. Adorable says:

    Well m stuck in such a situation where m not sure what to do 🙁 may be by using these ideas i will get a clear answer to whether he is interested in me or not!

  5. rrr says:

    “Jealously is the surest sign of love. If your guy does feel jealous, it definitely means he still cares about you. But if he doesn

  6. Anna Rebekah says:

    I think this article is a bit degrading to women. We don’ t need to sleep with other men and dress like prostitutes. Nor do we need to make ourselves seem low and flaunt hickies.. Instead, I encourage confidence and happiness. That’s the best way to get even because then he’ll see that he’s missing out on such a wonderful and beautiful woman and he will kick himself for letting her go.

  7. amy says:

    okay, first off it says to sleep with his friends that’s just nasty. i don’t need a guy that bad. and plus i have a boyfriend a really good that don’t even look or talk to other girls. but i came across this and wanted to read it and the sound of this makes women sound like hoes. women need to start being women. we don’t chase after guys okay we let them come to us. and don’t give it up right way either guys don’t like girls that are easy. well that’s like what i say or don’t but it’s the truth!!!!!!!!!

  8. Meggie says:

    awesome this helped alot thanx!!

  9. Denny says:

    @ Meggie – What? This article helped you? What, to completely alienate a guy that might have cared about you or to help you get an STD by following tip #6 and/or #7?

    This article is crap. LP has some good article, some bad articles. This is a bad one. Don’t follow any of this advice.

    A good man will recognize the manipulation and move on, not come crawling back. If you do manage to get a man to crawl back with these tactics, how can you ever trust each other afterwards? This is just dumb. Don’t do any of these things.

  10. SohNT says:

    I’m in this relationship with a guy from 3 years. I really love him, and I’m sure he does too. He got into a university where he lives in a hostile. Essentially, he has a lot of freedom now and more money than ever, and he seems to be lost in all of that. We have been fighting a lot, things got on a verge of break up too, but he won’t leave me and always admits that he started being too proud.
    The problem with me is that I’m an emotionally attached person towards him, and I feel he takes me for granted at times. He even mad fun of our sex-conversations while in anger.
    I’m sure that he loves me, even with a long distance relationship, he won’t breakup on me. But what do I do to make him want me more? He was literally MAD after me. I miss this. 🙁

  11. Jana says:

    Your answers were really on target but you really messed up in my opinion on one of your answers when you said “sleep” with his friend or “sleep” with others. Really that just makes a guy loose respect for a girl. Just because you see trash around you and on the internet, women need to be strong because there is nothing sexier than being classy. And I know too. I am or was known to be very physically beautiful myself but a woman’s dignity to me is just so critically important to her self esteem, value and worth. Women that do not think this way are are loose whores who have no feelings about their self esteem and just could care less about others opinions and feelings and that is why they are viewed in a very negative way and looked down upon imo. Thanks. 🙂

  12. Dick Hurt says:

    Never get jealous when you see your ex with someone else, because our parents taught us to give our used toys to the less fortunate.

  13. Ben says:

    I came across this website when looking for why women get jealous, because jealousy is not attaractive to me, but in response to this article, whatever woman who thinks that by doing this her man is gonna change is just out of their mind. If your relationship is so bad with your boyfriend then BREAK UP with the dude. If this is attempted he is either going to A) get angry and with some men thats nothing to play with, or B) hes gonna leave. Either way you dont end up with the desired results. Case closed.

  14. kingBear says:

    This isn’t really accurate because we know when ur trying to make us jealous and actually it makes us happier because we know that and we just pretend even harder not to notice, giving us the power on how much more we make a girl try to get our attention, ironically, and all of the key things that are suggested for girls to do, are all the wrong things to do because we’ll just think ur a whore that wants attention, seriously, vagina isn’t hard to get and at the end of the day, we can have it from other girls, why play hard to get when there’s pussy on tap somewhere waiting for you?

  15. Jnoir says:

    Wow! Warning this can back fire! Some guys can’t handle jealousy and will withdraw. There’s a difference between making him jealous and making him ‘hunt’ for you.

  16. Brianna says:

    This is sooooo true. My bf of 9 months started slipping in his affection, etc, a breakup was very real at that point. But then my bff said just ignore him, look super cute when u see him, dont accuse him of anything-just look and act really confident and independent of him and he’ll start to wonder. Send mixed messages so thi gs dont ge t boring!

  17. aisha says:

  18. Myriah says:

    There is this guy I have known for 6, almost 7 years now. He’s one of my older brothers best friends and he’s also extremely close with my family. I’ve had a crush on him ever since I have met him. I find out this year that he has always wanted to have sex with me and he has always thought I was beautiful. He is confused about how he feels about me and I am sure it’s because he thinks of my brother as his brother. He used to live where I live but he moved about 4 hours away. He’s coming here to visit for Christmas and I think he’s staying here, at my parents house, for a couple of days. We have been texting and flirting (Kind of) but it just feels like a dead end with him. I usually text him every night saying “I hope you had a good day. goodnight” and he’ll reply back and start like a 5 minutes conversation and then go to bed. Any time I bring up another guy, it seems like he gets jealous and wants to talk to me more. One night, I didn’t text him and he texted me saying with a half sad face saying I didn’t text him. I want his attention, so should I continue talking about other guys? Should I say I went on a date (If I do go on one)? What should I do? I don’t want to cause him to runaway.

  19. EthicsGradient says:

    A male perspective (if welcome?):

    Possibly some of the worst advice ever. Follow this and any chance of a relationship is over. This behaviour and the article endorsing it is just pandering to the more radical end of the red pill/MR movement.

    If you don’t believe me just reverse the genders in the article. It’s the same destructive, self obsessed behaviour advocated frequently by the PUA community, (and sadly ladies, there is a mountain of stuff out there telling guys to look for ANY of these signs and take VERY terminal action at the first sign of them)

    There is too much of this BS being shouted on both sides of the gender gap. If you’re looking for a decent guy, try being a decent woman. And vice-versa.

    Play mind games and you absolutely deserve all the pain you’re trying to inflict on another.

  20. ThereOverThere says:

    These tips don’t just make the boyfriend jealous, it could make him want to beat up the competition. Making your boyfriend jealous can be dangerous for other guys who don’t want that trouble. I am disgusted by girls who do this to other guys. Just imagine: some girl flirts with a guy, gets his hopes up, then her boyfriend beats him up and she goes back to the boyfriend. Not only does the guy’s heart get broken, but his health is risked too. It really is sickening.
