11 Foolproof Ways To Turn Your Crush Into Your Bae
You’re already a showstopper, a goddess, and yes, intimidating in every way — in a good way. But sometimes your crush needs a little push.
1. Be Confident
Like a siren, you need to exude confidence. When you’re comfortable with yourself, imagine how smoothly each and every conversation with any potential hottie can go.
2. Give Him the ~Signal~
Hold your gaze across the room for three seconds to give a welcoming smile and look away, totally giving him/her the ~signal~ (just don’t wink — I promise you first hand, it’s weird and harder than it looks).
3. Let Your Body Language Say It All
Sometimes, your actions can speak louder than word. Lean toward your bae while you’re talking, or subtly bat those eyelashes (without blinking like you’re having an allergy attack), and keep your chin out — it exudes confidence.
4. Show Interest (And Realize Disinterest)
You may be able to feign interest in class and get away with it, but in social situations, there’s nothing more obvious than when your eyes glaze over. If you’re really into someone, show it! If you’re not feeling the sparks, don’t settle or deny it to yourself — move on to the next!
5. Make It Known That You’re Available But Also Have Your Own Schedule
During a casual conversation, make a subtle comment that eludes to the fact that you’re single and interested. Mention a FUN single girl thing you love to do, like, “I’m so happy about having more time to hang out with my girlfriends.” Independence is sexy and it shows you’re laid-back and not in a rush.
6. Be Yourself While Maintaining Some Mystery
There’s nothing more charming than being yourself, but make sure this person is worthy of knowing you. Part of your mystery lies in withholding information, so don’t give up the names of your future children just yet.
7. Don’t Play Games
Avoid sending elusive texts or timing back your response, or doing things like asking if they think your friends are pretty, etc. — this isn’t Maury, so no drama necessary.
8. Do Something Fun Together
Do something active next time you hang out — a hike, a walk on the beach, or a rollercoaster ride. Any experience that generates excitement and creates ~butterflies~ is not only fun but memorable too. Your crush will associate you with a good time and a fuzzy feeling in his/her chest. (This is like, science, btw.)
9. Compliment Your Crush
But don’t be fake about it. It’s hard to forget someone who genuinely thinks you’re a good person with great taste. Compliment their style and laugh at their jokes (even if they are a little cheesy). You’ll feel better from it, too!
10. Don’t Be Afraid To Text
If you really like this person, it’s ok to text them! Just keep your cool and text like you would a normal friend.
11. Get It Together, Girl
Perhaps the most important way to get your crush is to get it together yourself. Figure out what you want in your bae, not what that person wants in you, and the ball will always be in your court.
