Being around someone you find attractive can be mega intimidating, but you have to remember that everyone gets nervous sometimes. Luckily, we have some tips that can help you be cool and confident around your crush!
1. Embrace the Awkward
Most people are so scared about coming across as awkward or having lulls in conversation, but try and think that this is bound to happen. If you accept it, you’ll come across as genuine. And of course, things will get less awkward as you go along.
2. Remember, They’re Human Too
It’s easy to think of boys as an alien species 👽 (and sometimes they act like it) but remembering that they are human just like you can really help to calm your nerves.
3. Work on Body Language
Making small changes to your body language can have an impact on how you feel and how others see you. Try standing up straight (no slouching!) and making eye contact 👀 Practice makes perfect!
4. Smile through It😊
We definitely understand that smiling isn’t always natural, but remembering to do so can display confidence and actually impact how you’re feeling subconsciously. Frowning can actually cause you to feel sadder.
5. Ask Lots of Questions❓❓
A way to be less nervous is to direct the attention off of you. The easiest way to do this is by asking lots of questions about the guy’s interests and hobbies. It obviously also lets you get to know them better, so it’s a win-win.
6. Wear Your Favorite Clothes 👗
It makes sense that if you like your outfits, you’ll feel more confident in general. If you know you’re going to see that hot guy, then dress to impress and work it.
7. Get out of Your Head
Building things up in your mind is an easy thing to do, but it only adds unnecessary stress and worry. Try to visualize the situation in a positive light and see a positive outcome 💭 If you can think it, you can do it.
These are just a few things to take into account when talking to an attractive guy. Of course, the biggest thing to keep in mind is just to be you, as cliché as that might sound. Remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day and it will get easier in time! Good luck!!😘
