High school is a fun period in one's life. Guys and girls are trying to get to know the opposite sex, are willing to experiment with many different, and also date lots of people. For dating, you first of all need to make a guy interested in you. And when it comes to getting a guy interested in you, flirting is an art which is used by many girls. However, not all girls are confident enough to approach a guy they like or flirt with him. So, for girls like these, given below are some useful flirting tips.
In order to get a guy to notice you, you have to be available first. So, if you are the studious type who prefers to study and read all the time, or a shy girl who is an introvert, chances are that no one will ever know that you exist. So for starters, become a social person, make friends, and hang out with your classmates.
Although it is said that one's inner beauty matters more than how one looks from the outside, in high school or even after that, the first thing a guy will ever notice about a girl is her looks. Now, this does not mean that you have to look very stunning all the time. Being well-groomed, wearing clothes that flatter your body shape, and a light makeup is all that is needed to make you look feminine and pretty.
Always appear positive and wear a smile on your face. A smiling person is more likely to have more friends than a gawky one or the one with a sad face. If you smile at a guy, nine out of ten times they will say hi and from then on you can take the conversation forward.
It is human nature that we tend to speak more to people who we feel will listen to us, understand us, and are in some way interested in what we have to say. One of the ways to show interest in a guy is by becoming a good listener. If you show the guy that you like listening to him or think of him as an intelligent person, he too is most likely to get interested in knowing you.
A fun, playful, and jovial person always finds many takers, irrespective of whether they are a guy or a girl. So, develop a sense of humor. Keep a smile on your face. Laugh a lot. Guys are known to fall for girls who are fun to be with.
To flirt with a guy over text or in person, one thing that always does the trick is to give them compliments. There is no better way to flirt with a guy than by flattering his ego. So, tell him things like "nice shirt", or "I like your hairstyle", or "you are so intelligent". And most importantly, sound genuine when giving compliments.
When talking to a guy, touch his arm or his leg "accidentally". It should be like a brush of the hand on his arm or a tap on his shoulder or an innocent "touch" on his knee (if you are sitting together). If the guy likes you back, he will get the hint that you are interested in going out with him.
Ask for Help
Become the damsel in distress once in a while. Ask for his help in your homework or in a school project. Carry two-three heavy books when he is around and pretend that you can't carry them on your own and ask for his help. It is every guy's dream to act as a knight in shining armor so this trick always works too.
When it comes to flirting online, do not ever flirt with strangers. Only if you know the guy well should you initiate conversation with him. In the end, remember that even after you have tried your best in getting a guy's attention, if he still seems disinterested, do not take it to heart. Do not make the mistake of chasing after a guy. Just let it go and start afresh. There are plenty of great guys out there.
