From what to do to what not to do, this piece tells you everything you need to know to get a boyfriend in high school.
High school is the time for parties and crushes and perhaps for the first time, boyfriends. After innumerable smiles in the corridors, random dedication of songs, and some countless movies together, you just don't know why he won't ask you out. Want to know why? Let's find out!

Tips to Get a Boyfriend in High School

Keep It Simple

Be someone who is liked by everyone. Be simple in your ideas; don't complicate the way others perceive you by being someone you're not. Be more sensible.
Don't expect a guy you meet now to marry you. If this happen, great! But don't reach such a conclusion within few days.
Let's take some inspiration from what Dave Berry has to say ―Guys are simple... women are not simple and they always assume that men must be just as complicated as they are, only way more mysterious. The whole point is guys are not thinking much. They are just what they appear to be. Tragically.

Attention to Appearance

If you want to know how to get a guy to notice you, this tip will surely help. All guys are initially only physically attracted.
So, you will have to give enough attention to your appearance. Make sure your wardrobe is decent enough to make you look good at all times.
Also, always be appropriately dressed; nothing fancy when it's not needed. Another perspective here is that of hygiene. See to it that your hair is always in place and that your nails are always properly shaped if not cut.

Show Some Smartness

Another thing you need to make sure of is that you are smart enough for the guys. No guy will like a girlfriend who is dumb and not street smart. Gone are the days when bold was something that was looked down on.
Today, smartness is given much more credit than you think it ever got. Know your stuff in school well, and don't seem lost in all conversations. Have an opinion of your own, which is formed by individual reasoning. There is something called substance, make sure you've got some.

Some Flirting Help

Now if you have your eyes set on this one particular guy, tell him that you're interested. You can't go tell him this outright, can you?
Well, a little bit of healthy flirting is all you need here. Show a few flirting signs, but don't go overboard with them and seem desperate.
Look at him straight in the eyes when he talks to you and have those witty one-liners ready for use. There are guys who are smart enough to interpret them the right way and for the ones who can't, who cares?

Idealistic Individuality

Maintain your individuality. Guys don't like girls who are always tagging along and act like leeches, albeit unknowingly. These girls seem like a constant emotional liability and no one wants those. So, retain your individuality among the crowd.
High school is a time when everyone follows the masses and it's all about the being a part of the crowd. It is this thought process that you need to break and be different.
Start the application of these tips as soon as possible, to see better and faster results. Remember, there is nothing difficult in getting a boyfriend as long as you stick to being yourself and don't pretend to be someone else. Be proud of being who you are than being unsure of being someone else. Best of Luck!
