You might not realize it but underneath that cool and confident guy, he’s freaking out trying to figure out how the girl they like is feeling. It can be fun to keep a guy guessing, but once in a while it’s nice to show how you feel. However, not everyone is perfect at showing it. Hopefully these easy ideas will let your guy know you care!
1. Take interest in what he likes.
Find out what he enjoys doing. If he likes a sport you’ve never tried then try it out. Or if he likes a certain television show or movie, watch it. If he’s into certain band then try to listen to a few songs on Spotify and make a playlist of songs he might like. Having a common interest automatically gives you something to talk about the next time you see him.
2. Cook something for him.
The easiest way to get to a guy’s heart is through his stomach. It can be something as simple as making his favorite snack or as extravagant as a full course meal. Cooking shows that you put time and effort into impressing him.
3. Text him with meaningful conversations.
Having good conversations is always important when getting to know someone. Try to skip the cliché banter and dig deeper. Providing support and advice to things he cares about will get him to notice you as something more than a friend. If you can get on some level where you’ve both shared a similar experience, then you’re one step ahead of the game.
4. Compliment him.
This is such a simple and effortless thing to do. If you see an accomplish he recently achieved, make sure you say something nice to him about it. He’ll be impressed that you actually noticed!
5. Suggest hanging out.
If the conversation is going good and he seems interested, suggest doing something that you both like doing together. Maybe ask him to help you improve your swing at the batting cages or offer to show him that cookie recipe firsthand.
6. Make the first move.
If you’re hanging out and he clearly seems nervous, try relaxing him a bit. You could hold his hand during the movie or casually touch him on his arm when you talk.
7. Send small things.
If there’s a funny cat video on YouTube and he has a cat, send him the link. If it’s an article about something you both like, send it to him and ask him for his opinion. If you talked about something specific recently and you happen to see something on the Internet about it and send it to him, it will show you’ve been thinking about him.
8. Give him some space.
Guys don’t like to be bombarded, so do something sweet once in a while and then let him be. He’ll respect that you’re giving him some alone time and he is not constantly on your mind. Guys like to initiate sometimes too!
9. Dress nicely.
If you want to buy a new outfit for when you see him, do it! Asks what he likes, or what his favorite color is and then wear it. Putting a little extra effort into your appearance won’t go unnoticed.
10. Write to him.
It can be as simple as a cute notes in an unexpected place or something bigger, like writing a letter and sending it in the mail or writing him a poem. Whatever you do, he will like it!
