How To Get A Girl Like You: 25 Ways To Try

1. Pay attention to your appearance

A girl’s initial impression of a man is his appearance, so look your best to ensure you make a good impression. Of course, this does not imply that you must resemble a Brad Pitt or a Johnny Depp that many young women may swoon over. When you pay attention to your appearance, it communicates to others that you feel good about yourself.

2. Watch your body language

You can make yourself more intriguing by having engaging body language and vocal tone. It’ll help in magnifying your words, making sure that your interest and attentiveness come through. Do away with nervous gestures like giggling while talking, covering your mouth with your hand, or scratching your head.

3. Be honest

Do not pretend to be someone you are not just to make a girl like you because you will get caught sooner or later. This is the cornerstone of a strong relationship. When approaching a girl, be direct and avoid playing with their emotions. It will be smooth sailing if you’re candid about your intentions and feelings with her.

4. Be confident

Being confident in your thoughts and actions plays a pivotal role in wooing the girl you like. Girls love the company of boys who are engaging. So, when you’re talking, be confident. Allow your words to flow when speaking with a girl, and never mince your words.

5. Make an eye contact

Eye contact is extremely important when you talk to a girl because it will boost your self-confidence. Maintaining eye contact and being attentive conveys your interest in the girl. On the contrary, looking away can be perceived as disinterest and discomfort.

6. Be a good listener

Genuinely think about what a girl says and be interested. So, in conversations, take your time and be a good listener. When speaking, focus on the girl rather than yourself. This announces your liking towards her and makes you more appealing.

7. Make her laugh

Humor can be an aphrodisiac for girls and a powerful seduction technique as it instantly attracts them towards you. Make her laugh by sharing hilarious stories about yourself. A word of caution: Never make fun of other people for the sole purpose of making her laugh. If you do this, she may perceive you as mean.

8. Always smile

A smile projects you as friendly and approachable. Even if a smile isn’t visible, a basic affirmative facial muscle action will suffice.

9. Be courteous

Girls are delicate and tender and deserve to be treated with politeness and courtesy. Harsh comments used in an unpleasant tone will repel them. Being courteous, respecting her views and opinions will always work in your favor.

10. Get a hobby

Pick up a hobby, whether it’s playing an instrument, painting, cooking, or anything that interests you. It can be something you’re really passionate about and not something phony. Your girl will notice if you are genuinely good at something.

11. Like yourself

When it comes to girls, your inner state is crucial. You must first love and embrace yourself for girls to regard you as likable and lovable. Also, you must be zealous about your life and determined to achieve your goals if you want her to accept you for who you are.

12. Get in shape

Getting in shape has numerous advantages, like boosting your self-confidence and making you feel better about yourself. In addition, building muscle and decreasing fat can improve your body and face, resulting in a change in your overall appearance.

13. Stay fresh, smell refreshing

Girls are more likely to be drawn to the one who appears fresh and well-groomed. Showering, shaving, spraying, and smelling fresh are basic things to do, as they go a long way in making her like you!

14. Disclose your secrets

Tell her a personal detail about yourself that only a few close people know. This will foster trust, and as you tell her about yourself, she will notice that you trust her, encouraging her to trust you even more.

15. Don’t be overly nice

It’s one thing to be nice, but another to indulge in exhibitionism. Being too nice reflects a weak mindset. It stems from fear, insecurity, and desperation. There’s nothing wrong with being nice, but if you intend to manipulate the girl into giving you something in return, your will fall flat.

16. Compliment her

You can shower compliments on a girl, appreciating her for looks, talent, attitude, and energy. But when complimenting a girl, make sure you come across as genuine. Once she acknowledges your praise, quickly change the topic to something intriguing and engaging to relieve the pressure.

17. Be chivalrous

Girls will adore a man who devotes all of his attention to them. When you pay attention to a female, you are telling how important she is to you. Likewise, girls cherish the concept of a knight in shining armor who opens doors for them, gives up his chair for them, and so on.

18. Be adventurous

If you want a girl to like you, you must learn to cultivate the habit of surprising her by occasionally breaking your routine. Girls like the man who is spontaneous and loves taking risks. So, if you can surprise the girl in your life with something unconventional, enjoyable, and exhilarating, such as an adventurous outing, she may begin to like you.

19. Tease her

Girls enjoy being made fun of in a friendly way. Start a conversation about something that makes her feel good about herself or something you can tease her about. She may feel amused and flattered and will probably start laughing, so be playful.

20. Find common interests

When we’re around people who share our interests, we feel at home. When you get the opportunity to speak with your girl, make sure you are aware of your shared interests. So, look for a shared interest to discuss, such as music, movies, books, hobbies, or whatever you both have in common.

21. Be reliable

One of the fundamental aspects of recognizing your authority as a man is to be her go-to person. If you can be dependable and trustworthy in a girl’s eyes, you will become extra special. So, if a girl wants to pour her heart out or needs some help, make sure you’re the first man that comes to her mind.

22. Give her space

Giving her space is all about demonstrating your self-confidence. This does not imply that you should play hard-to-get but rather offer a girl control over what happens next. Pressuring her or bullying her into a relationship will have the exact opposite effect.

23. Flirt with her

Flirting is an excellent way to boost your self-esteem. Just make sure you’re not overdoing it. Remember, your goal in flirting is to make her laugh and open the door to closeness using your body language and subtle coquetry.

24. Text her

Send her good morning and good night text messages to increase her interest in you. When texting a girl you like, always keep the messages positive.

25. Agree to disagree

It’s fine if you don’t always agree with her. If you both watched a movie and you disliked it, but she enjoyed it, tell her why you disliked it! It’s important to have your perspective because it underlines that you’re your individual self who is clear about his likes and dislikes.

Getting a girl to like you is a skill that can be honed by proper practice and patience, much like playing the guitar. Knowing how to read a girl’s body language, how to keep a conversation flowing, and winning her trust are some of the important factors in getting a girl to like you. And, once she is yours, all you need to retain her is to be genuine and honest to both her and yourself.

Key Pointers

  • To get a girl to like you, be honest about yourself, watch your body language, and be confident.
  • Making frequent eye contact and being a good listener will show her that you are interested in her.
  • Grooming yourself and being presentable may help you catch her eye.
