If you are trying to watch romantic comedies to get tips on how to get guys to like you, stop! These movies are based on exaggerated figments of imagination of writers who lock themselves out from the real world for days to write scripts. Another big no is to take tips from friends who themselves don't have the first clue of what's happening around them, but are eager to give advice cause it's free. Now that we have established a little of what not to do, let's look at some of the things that might help your cause.
There is no one single thing that you can do to get a guy fall for you, it has to be a combination of things. Guys can be a little complicated, or maybe the word is confused, when it comes to girls. On one hand, they want a really hot girl who would be the envy of his friends and on the other, guys want a girl who will share his likes for video games and Monday night football. So, if you want to know how to make a guy like you, you need to showcase that you have the ability to be a chameleon.
Appearances Matter
When I say appearance it does not necessarily mean your anatomical features, it means the way you dress and the way you present yourself. There are several magazines and websites dedicated to fashion and style, pick up some tips on how to dress up and accessorize. An innate sense of style is the key to being popular in high school, so explore this option exhaustively. The visual cortex is one of the strongest sense that guys have, and you need to get them to focus on you. You won't even have to think about how to get a guy to ask you out, if you present yourself well, he will ask you out.
Get Noticed
Remember asking around how to get a guy to like you in middle school, well, the tips haven't changed much, you need to get noticed for a guy to like you. If he doesn't see you, there is no question of him liking you. Take the same classes he does, get acquainted with his friends (Gal Pals), connect with him on 'Facebook' (any social networking site), etc. Nowadays, most dating tips consist of approaching guys on the web, so don't miss out on this opportunity.
Similar Likes
The old adage 'Birds of a feather flock together' also stands true in the girl-boy context. To get a guy to like you, find out what he likes and then 'Fake it to Make it'. To help you understand, if the guy you like loves playing video games like 'Mass Effect 2,' try and learn to play this and pretend to like it. Another thing guys will mostly like is a different genre of music than girls, so find out what he likes and probably give him a CD of his favorite songs, or engage him in a conversation about his favorite band. This is the simplest way to get a boyfriend in high school.
Understand Sports
There are different ways to make a guy like you and one of the simplest is to share his interest in sports. All you have to do for this is watch 'SportsCenter' on ESPN and see a few highlights and remember some numbers. Just mention the game and a player's name and the guy will talk about the rest. This does not sound romantic but you are laying the foundation, so suck it up if you don't find sports appealing.
Flirting Works
There are some subtle ways to flirt with guys, but don't make it too obvious. 99 percent of guys suffer from the hero syndrome, they love helping out damsels in distress. One of the best flirting tips is to ask a guy for help, it can either be with homework, asking a reference for a good mechanic, suggestions for a good movie, in short help with anything under the sky.
Be bold and approach him. Some guys are shy and will hesitate to make the first move even if they like the girl. Another tip is to smile at him and let him know that you are interested and approachable.
