#1 Dress well and look great. Guys fall for appearances more than anything else. While guys also do fall in love with a platonic friend after several interactions based on the personality, they almost always make up their mind about a girl’s level of attractiveness in the first few interactions.
Dress well in attire that accentuates your better side, feel confident about yourself and don’t feel negative about yourself. The way you perceive yourself has a lot of impact on how others perceive you. [Read: 20 circumstances when a guy will never like you back]
#2 Make his friends fancy you. If his friends think you’re hot stuff, the guy you like will believe you’re hot stuff too. If you know a few of his friends well, be warm and fun when you’re talking to them. If they think you’re a great girl, they’ll have a lot of conversations about you. And the guy you like will actually end up with a positive impression of you even if you haven’t been interacting with him.
#3 Don’t be lonely. Instead, be popular and liked by everyone. When you’re one of the popular girls around, you’ll seem like a bigger catch because so many people like you and think you’re sweet. [Read: How to be loved by everyone]
#4 Seem difficult to get to everyone else but him. Glance at him discreetly now and then. And when you’re walking past him, look at him and flash a small smile discreetly. Be discreet about your affections for him. Even his friends shouldn’t know that you smile at him or exchange glances with him now and then.
If he ever does tell his friends about the flirty eye contact he makes with you, his friends would probably not believe him because they see no visible flirty signs from you. By doing this, you’ll make the guy you like want your attention even more badly because he’s not sure you like him yet. [Read: How to get a guy’s attention in any circumstance]
#5 Don’t make the first move. Once you get to know him, don’t run up to him to say hi. Be warm and friendly when you speak to him, but don’t initiate a conversation by walking up to him, at least at the beginning of the friendship. Make him come up to you, and let him always feel like he’s making the move to impress you, and not the other way around.
#6 Be cute and flirty. Guys love a girl who knows to be feminine and graceful. Be cute in your behavior and in everything else you do, and you’ll get his attention and affection in no time. [Read: 25 ways to be really cute and melt a guy’s heart]
#7 Make him crave for you sexually. This is sneaky, but something that always works. Look for ways to build the sexual tension between the both of you. If you’re standing close to him, find a way to let him graze his hands against you. Bump into him *accidentally* and make sure your boobs brush his arm. Or bend low to pick something up in front of him so he gets an eyeful. Be discreet, but hook him with your womanly powers! [Read: 10 ways to seduce a guy you like into desiring you]
#8 Leave him halfway through a conversation. For a guy, it’s always nice to date a girl who’s easily available. But after a few conversations, the guy may lose interest in trying to impress you or getting you to stay longer. Every now and then, excuse yourself from the conversation just when it’s getting interesting and walk away. Leave him when he’s excited to talk to you so he can feel the disappointment of not having you around. When you make him miss you, you’ll make him get attracted to you.
Always leave him wanting more. But leave him with a very flirty smile or a cute I’ll-miss-you wink that’ll leave him thinking of you for a long time after you’re gone.
#9 Don’t make it obvious that you like him. Never acknowledge that you like him, not at least until he says he likes you first. Talk to him, flirt with him, compliment him but shy away from telling him that you’re falling for him. Always make it appear like he likes you when he flirts back with you. Even if he asks you whether you like him, deny it.
It may seem like you’re playing too hard, but you’re only making him fall harder for you. [Read: The right way to play hard to get with a guy]
#10 Have happy conversations with other guys. Guys like competition. Talk to other guys now and then and have a flirty laugh too. By doing that, you’re making him realize that there are other guys who want your attention too. He may not approach you when you’re with another guy, but he’ll constantly look for opportunities to talk to you when you’re alone. That’ll make him spend a lot of his time plotting ways to get you alone.
#11 Let him find you often by yourself. As popular as you may be, make sure you’re by yourself when you see a potential chance to bump into him. Even if you’re with your friends when you’re expecting him to walk by you, excuse yourself to be by yourself. He’ll be excited to get some alone time with you.

#12 Make him ask you out. Play hard to get, but always make him feel like you have a special spot for him in your heart. Be really nice to him when you’re with him and talk to him like you’re already in love with him. But never say it out loud. He’ll love the attention he’s getting, and yet fear the competition when you’re with other guys. It’ll make him work hard to win you over.
And when you feel like he’s interested in you and wants to be with you, look for sneaky ways to get him to ask you out.
