With these 25 tips, you’ll say goodbye to the friend zone for good. Have you packed your bags yet? Let's explore the top** how to make your crush like you** tips that maybe you haven't tried yet!

1 Don’t Change the Core of Who You Are

girl, black hair, darkness, computer wallpaper, When looking for ways to make your crush like you, it can be tempting to alter your personality to fit what you believe your special guy is searching for. Don’t give in! Not only will it look and feel unnatural to go from class clown to prim and proper overnight, but it can also drive him away. So, show off your true self –even if the person you’re crushing on doesn’t realize how amazing you are, someone else will. I promise!

2 Be Flirty

eyebrow, face, beauty, cheek, chin, As an amazingly awkward gal, I know it can be hard to turn up the heat. But even a cutesy wave hello or an 'accidental' nudge in the hallway could turn you into the girl he can’t stop thinking about. If your efforts are fruitful, take it up a notch by planning a study date or asking for his phone number…for homework purposes, of course!

3 Connect through Common Interests

white, photograph, black, black and white, monochrome photography, One (nearly) foolproof way to make your crush like you is to relate to him. Whether it’s sports, music, or Converse sneakers, figure out what makes him tick. You don’t have to pretend to be the Yankees’ #1 fan, but make an effort to learn why he can’t get enough of the grey, blue, and white. Google is a great place to conduct some preliminary research.

4 Be Kind

hair, blond, human hair color, girl, eyebrow, Being a bit sassy is one thing, but if you’ve been arguing with your friends, family, and everyone in between lately, it can be a major turn off to your crush. Work on mending broken relationships so that when your dream guy meets the people in your life, he’ll know what an amazing lady you are!

5 Use Humor

singer, music artist, smile, television program, girl, I’m not saying you need to be the next great female comedian, but humor is one way to make your crush like you. And if the two of you manage to create your own inside jokes, it’s only a matter of time before he takes that fall. I’d suggest brushing up on your one-liners and taking it from there.

6 Stop Trying Too Hard

nose, human hair color, girl, black hair, emotion, You know how some girls slather on the eye shadow, hike up their skirts, and stumble around in 6-inch heels in an attempt to impress a crush? Stay far away from that club. Instead, act casual and cool –just don’t forget to brush your teeth! No one will swoon over you if you need a crash course in hygiene.

7 Give It Time

eyebrow, beauty, human hair color, girl, black hair, One way to make your crush like you is to give him the necessary breathing room. You can’t expect someone to fall for you after the first flirty text, so sit tight and let him come to you. I’d suggest delving into a new book while you’re waiting or reading some juicy gossip blogs –anything to take your mind off of how badly you want him.

8 Take the Initiative

hair, photograph, human hair color, black and white, eyebrow, Even if he’s a full on prankster with his pals, it’s totally possible that your crush is shy around girls he’s into. With that said, you shouldn’t be afraid to take the initiative if you believe he shares your feelings. Otherwise, you might never know – or he could be scooped up by a girl brave enough to send the first Facebook message. Go get him, girl!

9 Focus on Your Own Success

human hair color, eyebrow, beauty, girl, chin, If you’re looking for an easy way to make your crush like you, go ahead and make yourself the top priority. Join a sport, start a club, make a genius work proposal, and bask in your greatest accomplishments. He’ll notice your shining star in no time.

10 Don’t Ditch Your Friends

performing arts, dance, performance, entertainment, dancer, Remember when your besties made a supermarket run for tissues and ice cream the last time a guy blew you off? Just remember to keep your girls close, because I can assure you that chances are, they’ll be there for you when a boy isn’t. And let’s face it: who wants to date someone who bids her buddies goodbye? Flaky doesn’t exactly scream relationship material.

11 Never Stalk (except on Facebook)

fashion, pattern, Driving by his house with a gaggle of girlfriends should only happen in the movies. So should texting every 10 seconds, holding phone conversations with his mother, and saving the gum he sticks on the side of his desk during second period. Got it? Good.

12 Work Your Way into His Group

social group, fun, girl, fashion, crowd, This might not be the easiest way to make your crush like you, but if you’re successful with merging your two groups of friends, the greater the chance you’ll be heading down to Couplesville. I’d suggest figuring out what your groups would be happy doing together –something simple like bowling, pizza, or a movie. Just make sure you keep your guy close for some quality bonding time.

13 Smile!

white, face, black, photograph, person, Show off those pearly whites anywhere and everywhere. I’m not urging you to be a fake; rather, when you’re happy, let the world (including your crush) know it. It’ll draw him in, giving you the chance to show off your wonderful personality!

14 Listen up

girl, interaction, scene, fun, product, If you’re the one who’s constantly doing the talking, you’ll need to work on your listening skills ASAP. Be courteous, pay attention, and stop the constant gabbing. He’ll notice the effort you’ve made to be there for him.

15 Pay Attention to the Little Things

photograph, black and white, beauty, monochrome photography, photography, This step is like listening, but goes even further. For example, if orange is his least favorite color and he’s allergic to peanuts, you’ll know never to buy him a tangerine mug filled with mixed nuts for his birthday.

16 Don’t Freak out

eyewear, glasses, vision care, girl, black hair, Another way to make your crush like you is to stop being so uptight. If you’re the type of gal to have a mini-meltdown over every little thing that goes wrong, you can drive him away…fast. I tend to be impatient and demanding – but sometimes, I have to keep my temper in check to keep things comfortable. You might also want to invest in a stress ball or a few yoga classes.

17 Keep Your Options Open

glasses, eyewear, vision care, smile, girl, Yes, this really is a way to make your crush like you. By chatting it up with other guys, you’ll let him know that you won’t wait around forever. However, I’d advise against going too far – you don’t want him to give up all hope or lead another boy on, do you?

18 Be Confident

glasses, eyewear, vision care, girl, smile, Guys find it irresistible when a girl is comfortable in her own skin. So, throw on your favorite outfit, tend to your tresses, and strut through the hallways like the world is yours, because pretty soon, your crush will be!

19 Leave Him a Note

hand, finger, font, I know this sounds juvenile, but it's actually pretty effective. Leave your crush a note on his desk, in his locker, etc. Writing a note is cute, simple and it is a little safer for both of you than saying it face to face. Keep it short, sweet and slightly subtle, yet say something just honest enough to where he knows you care.

20 Go to His Games

, One of the easiest ways to get your guy to notice you is to go to a game for a sport he plays in. If he doesn't play a sport, attend an event you know he'll be at. I used this trick in high school and it always worked. Also make sure you walk by the sidelines at some point when he's standing around so he'll catch notice of you.

21 Don't Bash Other Girls

human hair color, beauty, girl, black hair, brown hair, In case you didn't know, one thing that really turns guys off is when other girls bash each other. Guys don't find it sexy or cute, so don't stoop that low to try to impress a guy. Even if she is trying to take him away from you, be the lady you are and keep your thoughts to yourself. Instead, focus on being nice to him.

22 Dress Cute

beauty, dress, girl, I don't believe in dressing provocatively to get a guy's attention, but dressing cute is appealing to a guy. Make sure you match, wear cute accessories, and wear a few of the latest trends. Just keep it covered since you don't want to send the wrong message!

23 Wear a Great Perfume

perfume, glass bottle, bottle, barware, liqueur, I don't know about you, but I love smelling a guy's cologne, don't you? Well guys like the same thing in girls too. Wear a nice smelling perfume any time you're around him. After all, scent is one of the most powerful influences to the human body. Make sure you don't wear too much, but do pick something sweet, slightly sexy and incredibly feminine.

24 Get to Know His Friends

interaction, event, restaurant, fun, conversation, Here's a back door approach to get to know a guy, or be around him more, that also works wonders. Get to know one of his friends, but only in a friendly manner. For instance, if one of his friends is in your classes, try to talk to them more. Don't come on to them, or they might get the wrong idea, but try to make casual conversation with someone your guy hangs out with. You can even do this in work settings too. Start communicating with anyone your guy knows, which will ensure you that you'll have someone who can put a good word in for you later. It also gives you an idea of the kind of people he hangs out with.

25 Don't Get Desperate

glasses, vision care, eyewear, girl, Lastly, but most importantly, don't get desperate to make a guy notice you. It doesn't work and is just against the female code of ethics. If he can't see how great you are, or he's taken, then let him be. A better man will turn up later for you dear!

Now that you've made it through 25 tips on how to make your crush like you, which ones will you be trying? What are some of your tried and true ways to get a guy to like you?
