How to Get a Guy to Hit on You
5 little tricks to convince him it’s time to make his move.
As much fun as it can be to turn the tables and take the lead every once in awhile (see How to Hit on a Guy), most of us still prefer the time-tested tactic of letting guys approach us first. Not only does it let them do their “hunter” thing, it’s also flattering for us to be picked out of the crowd. But it’s important to remember that you don’t have to relinquish all control just because you’d rather let him to make the first move. If you know how to play your cards right, it’s not difficult to tilt the odds in your favor and convince him to come try his luck with you.
OK, it’s a Saturday night and you want to meet a guy — or maybe even a few guys. So you spend two hours perfecting your hair and makeup, throw on your hippest skinny jeans, sexiest platform pumps and the flashiest shirt in your closet. You go out to a bar with your girlfriend, buy a pair of vodka sodas, settle into a corner table and wait…. But no guys approach. What’s wrong with this picture? If you really want to get hit on, you need to understand how to really get his attention. Here, ladies, are the ground rules:
Have fun. There’s nothing more attractive to a guy than a girl who’s just fun to be around. When you’re out a bar, be the life of the party. Goof off, laugh, throw straw wrappers at each other, and just have fun with your friends and enjoy their company. Not only will guys want to approach you, they’ll be less intimidated because you’ll come across as a fun, sweet, approachable girl.
Move around. Think about how scary it must be for a guy to approach a table of ladies who look like they want to keep to themselves. That type of situation screams “strike out,” and not so surprisingly, most guys simply stay away. Instead of sitting at a table with your girls, stand in the bar area, or if there’s music playing, dance around a little bit. Show guys that you’re there to meet people, not to keep to yourself.
