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.

This is going to sound completely cliche, but the best thing is to just be yourself. You'll make friends no problem. People can tell when you're being genuine or not, and they definitely appreciate you for who you are more than if you tried to be someone else. You got this, it'll be a fun and exciting experience. :)

On a typical day I wear a pair of ripped jeans and either a hoodie or jacket, and a snapback. The opposite would probably be a dress lmao.

I also love expensive clothing. Brand names are my thing. But I always shop either during sale times or at second hand stores. Sales are my best friend, honestly. It might be frustrating to wait, but it's worth it in the end. Shop only on sale racks in big stores, and scout out smaller second hand stores that often carry brand names, never worn, but for a cheaper price.
