If you’re on the hunt for the right guy, beware of some of the worst things to do to get a guy to like you in the process. The right guy will like you without these silly efforts, and if you’re using one of the methods below to get a guy, it might be the reason you haven’t found the right one. If you resort to these desperate things to do to get a guy to like you, you might end up with someone that isn’t a good guy, or just isn’t the right one for you. Remember to say no to the worst things to do to get a guy to like you, so you don’t lose touch with what you’re truly looking for.
1. Being Fake
One of the top worst things to do to get a guy to like you is to be fake. Don’t be someone other than yourself. Guys don’t like girls who put on a show in front of others, act one way to people’s faces and then talk about them behind their backs, or just pretend to be a certain way when you’re not. Be yourself- not someone you think he’ll want to date.
2. Trying to Be the Center of Attention
Don’t try to be the center of attention wherever you go. This isn’t a way to get a guy to notice you. It comes off obnoxious, or may attract the wrong kind of guy. Guys aren’t looking for girls that have to be in the spotlight all the time. It’s fine if you’re in the spotlight sometimes, but constantly trying to make yourself the center of attention is just not appealing.
3. Dressing Skanky
I had to say it, girls- don’t dress like trash if you don’t want to be treated like trash. Dress like a lady and you’ll get treated like a lady. Most guys will tell you that although that stuff gets their attention, it’s nothing more than eye candy. Good guys don’t trust girls that wear skanky clothes either, especially if they’re in a relationship with them.
4. Hang out in Clubs
If you’re trying to get a guy to like you, or a good guy that is, don’t hang out in bars and clubs all the time just to get noticed. You probably aren’t going to pick up your dream boyfriend here, and you’ll likely just get a lot of drama or wrong attention at these places.
5. Acting Desperate
Guys don’t like it when girls act needy, desperate or clingy. They don’t like to feel like you have no independence outside of them. Carry on with your life and live it to the fullest. Most guys find that more attractive than anything!
6. Give up Things You Love
If you’re trying to get a guy to like you, don’t give up the things you love so you can spend more time doing the things he loves to do. Sure, relationships are about give and take, but no guy should ever make you feel pressured to give up activities you enjoy. This is a sign he’s not the right guy for you, or that you’re giving an important piece of yourself away that isn’t necessary.
Never, ever lie about something to get a guy to like you. Whether it’s how much money you make, how you grew up, what kind of house you live in, what your job is, how great or not you cook, how much you work out, how much you weigh, or the things you enjoy. Never, ever lie to get a guy to like you.
8. Change Your Looks
You should also never feel pressure to change the way you look for someone either, by the way. If a guy is trying to change you, it might be a sign he’s controlling. If you’re trying to impress a guy and think he wants you to look differently, or that looking differently might change his mind about you- you’re wrong. The right guy for you will like you for you, not what color hair you have, how much makeup you wear, or how short or long your hair is.
9. Compromise Your Morals
Lastly, you should never compromise your morals about sex, religion, smoking, drinking, drugs, pregnancy, marriage, honesty, etc. when trying to get a guy to like you. If a guy is trying to change those things for the worst, stay far, far away! On the other hand, if he’s a good influence on these issues, you might want to scoot a little closer.
I hope these things can help you remember what not to do when searching for a guy. Keep these things in mind and be sure to share any tips you have with me. What would you never do to get a guy to like you?
