Dear Dish It: How Do I Get Him To Notice Me?

Dear Dish-It,

how do i get him to notice me?

getto


Dear getto,


It’s hard when you've got a huge crush on a guy who seems to look right past you. You spend your time daydreaming wondering: "How to get him to notice me?" Well, it’s a lot easier then you might think.


Getting the attention of a teen guy doesn't take much. But he definitely WON’T notice you if you:

  • You sleep in class or don’t even bother to show up!
  • You bury your head in your books and don't look up.
  • You avoid eye contact with everyone except your friends.


  • Now, the goal of getting him to notice you is not only to get his attention, but also to get him interested in you. He WON’T be interested if you don't practice good hygiene (meaning, bathing, deoderant, brushing your hair, etc.) or don't dress to impress. So leave the sweats at home and, in school or out in public, try and wear clothes that are flattering.


    Now that you know what WON’T work, here are some tips on using the five major sense to get yourself noticed by your crush:


    Sight: Get The Look

    Dress appropriately. The right clothes don't have to cost a lot, they just have to fit and match and reflect your own personal style. Brush your hair and wear flattering makeup, too, if you’re comfortable with that. It’s not ALL about looks, but part of the initial or first attraction is definitely physical.


    Smell: Get Him With Scent

    Smell is a huge part of attraction. Create a light signature scent – a smell others can identify you with instantly. Pick a perfume that smells great on you (be sure to try a few on – different body chemistries work differently with different scents and fragrances). Or, if you can’t afford to buy a new bottle of perfume, try a great-smelling body wash from your local drugstore.


    Sound: Let Him Hear Ya

    Casual laughing and intelligent conversation can get his attention if he's in earshot. Guys like girls who tend to be in good moods and are kind to others. Don't let him hear you being mean to others or talking anyone else down. Speak up in class and participate in group activities.


    Touch: Him

    Nothing grabs a guy’s attention more than a playful touch. Don’t go overboard with this one – stick to appropriate boundaries, like a light touch on the shoulders or back, which can get him to stop what he's doing and take notice. Walk by him and casually put your hand on his back as if to gracefully pass by. Any casual touches, especially those that he may think are accidental are good touches, will work. If he's already a friend, casually grabbing his arm or brushing against in while in conversation can get his mind off the "just friends" vibe and onto the "I think I like her" train of thought.


    Taste: Bring Goodies

    Guys love food – they love love love it. Especially treats. If you make goodies or have candy with you pass them out to friends nearby and offer him one as if to just be polite. Chances are he won't forget the gesture.

    Well you won't want to volunteer because that's unpaid.  Your profile says you're 11 which means you can't get a real job but you can babysit (you'll need first aid training for this), or you can pet sit or do yard work. Those are good jobs to have at your age.

    Maybe your overrating her personality while underrating yourself. Girls extremely like confident men so start working on your self esteem first because it stimulates interest to get to know you more especially on the romantic context and don`t forget to just be yourself so that you will know if she accept you to who you are and don`t let the "ideal boy" standard of the society bring you down. Remember that real happiness can be achieve when you are true to yourself so don`t mind what other people think of you and stop comparing yourself to the boys around her. Embrace your imperfections and wash away your insecurities and maybe she`ll like you back ;)

    Considering your age, it is normal that your parents might not accept it in case he likes you and the feeling is mutual and you must understand them. This is time when you need to focus in your studies and prepare for your future career and not for your future husband. You are still very young and trust me, you are still emotionally unprepared for this one heck of a roller coaster ride of emotions. Know the difference between loving that person and loving the feeling that you are in love. ;)

I am already back in school, I no longer have crutches thankfully. Also, i'd like to point out that they don't have social media, or at least, i'm not aware of it and I am out of school for two weeks for Christmas. Crushes are annoying lol. I have never been in a relationship either which makes things so much worst.
