1. Send him a PG text that’s just suggestive enough.
A carefully crafted PG text can be way more powerful than a nude photo or a naughty voice note whispered in your best sultry “Adele.” You don’t have to use blatantly dirty language to get him thinking about you and wanting more. All you have to do is leave your message open-ended. For example: “Can’t stop thinking about you…” or “Wish you were here right now…” By shrouding your statement in just enough mystery you can hint at the risqué without actually going there, which will make him yearn for more. (As an added bonus, your message will be way too innocent to be used as blackmail against you in case things go awry down the line.)
2. Wear something that shows off your personality.
Yes, revealing clothing is pretty much always helpful in wooing a dude. It’s rarely a bad idea to show a little leg or cleavage when you’re trying to get a guy’s attention. That said, an outfit that reeks of sex is a short-term play. If you’re seriously interested in someone, you might as well give them a glimpse of the inner awesomeness resting beneath your flesh. Dressed in something you love that speaks to who you are, you’re more likely to come across as a confident, desirable woman worthy of long-term commitment. So rock the Wonder Woman t-shirt, the statement necklace, the neon sneakers, or whatever apparel reflects your unique personality best.
3. Tell him you had a dream about him.
When someone reveals that you were in their dream, it means that you were literally on their mind the night before, which is unquestionably flattering. The dream doesn’t even have to be sensual for it to be interpreted as complimentary. So if you want to convey that you’re into a guy without saying something as direct as “let’s get naked together,” describe a dream you’ve had in which he played a major role. To be clear, it doesn’t matter if you’ve actually had any dreams about him at all. Feel free to take a creative license in drafting your own dreamscapes. It’s not like anyone can prove you’re lying!
Literally. Stretch. No one’s going to question why you spontaneously reach your arms up towards the sky or spread your feet apart and bend over to reach for the floor midday. You can do it anywhere: in your seat at work, between the library stacks, next to the water cooler, or in the hallway. Stretching is good for your health. Incidentally, it’s also a good way to turn heads. If you manipulate your body mindfully into attractive positions and not unsightly pretzel like formations, you’re sure to spark interest from the object of your affection.
5. Say something smart to prove you have brains and booty.
Acting ditzy might get you laid, but it’s probably not going to get you a date, at least not with a top tier guy. Don’t be afraid to raise your hand in class to say something super insightful, or throw a well-intentioned jab rooted in cleverness. Wit is an aphrodisiac to any high quality human worth your time, so use it to your advantage.
6. Play with your hair.
A full head of hair denotes health and fertility, two highly favorable biological traits. It’s one of the many things guys look for, subconsciously or not, when assessing a potential mate. Since the typical man doesn’t have long, luscious locks, a woman’s hair is also something of a curiosity to the opposite sex—one you can exploit to highlight what makes you so wonderfully exotic. So run your fingers through your mane, pull your hair up into a ponytail or twist it into a bun, moving your arms and upper body in as playful and flirtatious a manner as possible.
7. Bite your bottom lip.
Picture a woman biting her bottom lip. Sexy, right? Why exactly remains unclear, but what’s certain is that a little bottom lip nibbling can go a long way in seducing a man. When a woman shows a little tooth, she somehow exudes an extremely appealing mix of vulnerability and pensiveness. The next time your guy happens to look your way, give it a try.
8. Laugh out loud.
There’s nothing more attractive than a woman laughing with total abandon. A woman laughing uproariously is automatically viewed in a positive light—as free spirited and good natured and pleasant to be around. When you let yourself laugh like no one’s looking, you become someone who knows how to have a good time, and appreciates the humor in life. Someone who doesn’t take herself too seriously. The ideal life partner, really.
9. Send him a funny article or video he hasn’t seen yet.
Sharing content is a form of identity creation—a way to demonstrate who you are by revealing the type of material you consume day to day. By sending a guy a viral story or video before it blows up, you can establish just how awesomely in the know you are. Alternatively, by sending him a few links tailored to his specific interests, you can prove just how thoughtful and attentive you are.
10. Flirt with someone else.
We’re all susceptible to peer pressure to a certain extent, especially when it comes to what we desire. It’s only human to want what others want, after all. Luckily, there’s a way to capitalize on this phenomenon when courting a prospective partner. Flirt with someone else—preferably someone you’re confident will respond to your overtures—to substantiate your market value as a highly coveted lady.
