Here’s how to get a girl to like you.

8 Notes on How to Get a Girl to Like You

Be yourself

The best piece of advice is to ignore all the dubious things you’ve read online. Instead, be yourself. For example, the wholetreat her mean thing doesn’t work. Any kind of game never works in the long run. 

You can only pretend to be someone you’re not for so long before you have to take off the mask. Eventually, she’s going to see the real you. And you want her to like you for who you truly are.

Just say hi

The more you think about how you’re going to approach a girl, the less natural it will feel to you and to her. So don’t overthink things.

Most people shy away from doing things face to face these days because it’s easier to do it over text and avoid humiliation. Approaching her and saying something simple like “Hi, how’s your day going?” will probably be more refreshing and effective than you think. 

Watch your body language

We actually say a lot without even opening our mouths. That’s why it’s important to be conscious of your body language when talking to a girl you like.

Stand up straight, maintain eye contact, smile at her, and make sure your body is facing towards her. Don’t cross your arms. It’ll make you look like you’re on the defensive and closing off from her.  

Make her laugh

Humor goes a long way with women. If you can make her laugh, you’ll instantly be more attractive to her. But again, don’t try too hard, because women can usually pick up on this. 

Keep things relaxed and natural. Avoid the kind of humor or jokes you’d have with your guy friends. But don’t be afraid to be a little silly, or to make fun of yourself. That’s really endearing.

Look your best

Women are known for spending hours choosing date night outfits, doing their hair, and makeup. Many of us enjoy doing it because it’s kind of like a pre-going out ritual.

For some reason, guys just don’t spend the same amount of effort on their appearance, and it really shows. Make yourself stand out from most other guys by going the extra mile. 

Make sure you’ve got the basics covered like personal hygiene. Then get a haircut and invest in some well-fitting stylish clothes. It will make you feel way more confident.  

Pay her a non-physical compliment

Everyone loves receiving compliments. When it comes to women, a compliment that goes deeper than one about her appearance is even better.

For you to give her a compliment like this, you have to get to know her a little first. Find out what she’s interested in. Ask about her hobbies and what’s important to her. 

Compliments on our appearance are always welcome of course! But don’t go overboard with them because they’ll lose their effect and seem less genuine.  

Listen to her

Guy friends don’t usually remember important dates or events in women’s lives. This is something that boyfriends do. So if you want to know how to get a girl to like you, start acting like someone who’s more than just a friend. 

Whether it’s a trip away, an upcoming job interview, or a relative’s birthday, make sure you remember what she tells you, and ask her about it. You should want to do this if you genuinely care about her, and it will show her that you do.  

Embrace the scary

If you’re reading this article, you might be lacking a bit of dating confidence. And perhaps you’re a little out of practice when it comes to flirting.

The best thing you can do for your confidence is to push yourself to do things that scare you every day. It will be a little uncomfortable, but the more you do this, the stronger and more confident you will grow. 

Over time, you’ll find it easier to talk to women you like, and you’ll also become more attractive to women because you’re constantly challenging your self-imposed limits.

So there you have it. All you need to do is get out there and put your most authentic self forward. Any girl you want to like you will see that as a huge positive, we promise.
