Understanding women is a little complicated. It’s a challenge men have been taking on for years, and we have yet to fully understand the mind of a woman – any woman! Luckily, we’re not here to help you understand every facet of a woman’s mind. But we can help you find your groove and make it much easier to meet women who do like you. No, there is no magic weapon for making women all across the globe suddenly fall head-over-heels in love with you. Instead, we have a few tips to help you put your best self forward while respecting her boundaries. Here are some tips to keep in mind when it comes to getting a girl to like you.

At First Meeting

If you’re trying to get a girl you’ve just met to like you, here are some tips that can help:

Talk to Her on the Real

Many men find talking to women intimidating – or rather, they find hitting on women intimidating. So start by not doing that. Instead, just start up a conversation with a woman who piques your interest. No one-liners or seemingly funny jokes to break the ice.

Women usually don’t like the feeling of being hit on, especially if the setting isn’t appropriate. Striking up a conversation serves two purposes. One is that it allows you to release the pressure of feeling like you have to say or do something “cool.” Second is that it gives both of you the chance to get to know each other without feeling any pressure. A woman may react very differently to a man saying hello than to a man who starts up a conversation with a cheesy one-liner. It’s always best to start with mutual respect for one another at the first meeting.

Look Presentable

If you’re heading out to meet women, take the time to care for yourself. Coif your beard, fix your hair, dress in clean clothes, and carry yourself with care. Not many women are attracted to a man who is sloppy or messy. This doesn’t have anything to do with looks, but appearance. The difference is that women aren’t looking for a Fabio. They are looking for someone who cares enough about themselves to put themselves together. You don’t need to look like you just walked away from a GQ shoot. Just remember that your look says a lot about your character right off the bat.

Do Not Insist

If a woman is clearly avoiding a conversation with you, don’t think it will be seen as romantic if you keep pursuing a dying conversation. Instead, this often comes off as creepy or aggressive and turns women off even more. If you see the woman you are talking to is not very responsive, politely excuse yourself from the conversation. Not all women will be interested in you, nor are you interested in every woman. And that’s ok. Sometimes two people just don’t jive. Shrug it off, and be open to meeting another person you may have a better flow with. Signs a woman is not interested in your conversation, include: · She is giving short or one-word answers. · She is continually looking around and not making eye contact with you. · She is not asking you any questions in return. If these signs appear throughout your conversation, it may be a good time to say, “It was great to meet you. Have a nice evening” and move on.

Be Confident

Women admire confidence. In fact, everyone does. No one can believe in you if you don’t believe in yourself. Sometimes, just appearing more confident can completely change the way someone interprets your behaviors. So how do you exude confidence if you’re not the confident type?
Guide for Men
Tell yourself how great you are and why any woman would be lucky to have you before you go in. Do it in your head, of course! Or in front of the mirror before you head out. Remind yourself of all of your best qualities and what you have to offer. Think of it as giving yourself a little pep talk to help you put your most confident self forward. You are a great catch, so believe it – and she will, too! Stand straight, shoulders back, and go for it.

Show an Interest in Her

Too many men make the mistake of talking themselves up to impress a girl. The truth is, most women will see this as arrogant or self-absorbed, and it’s an automatic turn off for most. While you should go ahead and introduce yourself, ask about her, too. Women don’t want men who lead exciting lives. They want a man who is interested in them specifically. They want someone who cares about them and who really wants to know and understand them. If you feel the urge to go on and on about yourself, don’t! Every time you feel like blabbing a fun fact about yourself, ask her a question instead. Wait for her to ask about you.

Going From Friend to Boyfriend

If you’re interested in a girl you already know, you may have to make it more obvious that you are interested in her romantically. Of course, you don’t want to come off as overly aggressive either. Here are a few tips to help you break out of the friend zone.

Ask Her Out

Ask her out on a date. This is a very clear indicator that you’re interested in her. You don’t have to say in so many words, but ask her out on a date-like event. For example, take her to a movie on a Friday night or to a romantic restaurant for dinner. This will show her you are interested and give her the opportunity to get to know you in a different way.

Make Her Laugh

Above all, women want to be with a man they can laugh with and have fun with. Get to know her and find out what makes her smile. Humor is a great way to get closer to her and make your time together enjoyable. You want her to walk away from every encounter with you with a smile. It goes without saying that you should avoid inappropriate jokes. Try to skip on stuff that may be perceived as sexist. Keep it light and fun.

Try the Friendly Touch

To be clear, there is no sexual connotation here. A friendly touch is a way for you both to become comfortable with one another and move your relationship to the next level. Avoid touching areas like the lower back or anything that can be perceived as uncomfortable. Remember, it’s a friendly touch. A gentle shoulder tap to say hello or a high five are good ways to get your relationship moving without compromising any boundaries.

The Budding Relationship

If you’re working on a new relationship, but aren’t sure how to go about getting a girl to really like you, here are some tips to apply moving forward from this point on in the game:

Get to Know Her Friends

Meeting her best friends can feel overwhelming, especially if you are a shy person. But taking the time to get to know the people she loves the most is important. If you want her to like you, you first have to get to know every part of her, and that includes her close friends.

Pay Attention to the Little Things

Not all women want to be romanced with fancy gifts. In fact, a meaningful relationship is usually built on something deeper. Listen to the things she says. If she says she loves calla lilies, send her a bouquet out of the blue. Pick up one of her favorite magazines or bottles of wine. If you want a girl to like you and be engaged in a meaningful relationship with you, she has to know you value what she has to say and that you care about her feelings.

Don’t Move Too Fast

If you are in a budding relationship, be willing to meet her friends and family, but don’t insist on it. She may not be ready to move that far just yet – you may not be either! There is no reason to rush things. In many cases, moving too quickly can make her feel pressured to do something she isn’t ready to do,

Don’t Push Sex

Making jokes about wanting to have sex is almost never perceived as funny. In fact, this passive-aggressive behavior is seen more like a pressure tactic. Physical intimacy may be hot on your mind, but try not to let her know it. Let her show you the signs of when she is ready to move onto something physical. And always be sure to receive explicit consent before moving forward. Coercing someone into sex is not only wrong, but a surefire way to nip that relationship in the bud.

Give Her Your Full Attention

When you’re out on a date, put your phone away. This should be your top rule when you’re out with anyone because tapping away on your phone all night is just plain rude! If you want to get this girl to like you, she has to feel like you are genuinely interested in her. Engage in a real conversation, and when you’re together, be present for it. If other guys have told you to act like you’re not interested, please discard that juvenile advice. It’s disrespectful and will only work to secure you a weekend alone. Remember, it’s all about a mutual respect.

The Takeaway

When it comes to getting a girl to like you, it isn’t about learning to read or control her thoughts. Instead, it’s about making yourself more appealing to women. Working on yourself and your confidence is a big step in the right direction. Learning how to talk to women and be respectful is essential. But remember, you can’t force everyone to like you. If a particular woman just isn’t responsive to you, don’t take it as a negative. Maybe that woman wasn’t right for you, but there is someone who is. There are no tricks to getting women to like you. The only way to have better luck winning women over is to remain respectful, believe in yourself, and genuinely care about the person you’re trying to get to like you. Without these things, you won’t have much luck. That means you should stop applying tactics to a room full of women and hope for one to bite. Instead, focus on building real connections with people you have an interest in. At the end of the day, all any woman really wants is to be appreciated, valued, and respected. You should want those same things in return. Remember, you have a lot to offer! Remind yourself of that, and good luck. That lucky lady is out there somewhere.
