30 Top Tips To Make A Guy Like You
- Be comfortable in your own skin. Accept your height, ignore your acne. Like yourself if you want to make him like you.
- Don't talk yourself down. If you speak badly about yourself, you make it hard for him to like you.
- Don't be a cry baby. Only cry when you have a really good reason..
- Don't be self-obsessed or arrogant. Selfishness is never attractive.
- Don't complain about everything. You can't make a guy like you if he thinks you're too hard to please.
- Let him be a man. Let him have a role in your life.
- Give him room to be himself. Be supportive.
- Gossip is a really bad habit. If you gossip about other people, perhaps you'll gossip about him.
- So is smoking. It wastes money and it makes you smell bad.
- Avoid using too much makeup. Why do you wear it? Is it some kind of barrier between the real you and the world?
- Be clean and smell nice.
- You can't make a guy like you if you're loud and swear too much. Sure, you might be able to bully him into spending time with you. But that's not the same as making him like you!
- Don't be texting or talking to others 24/7. Suggest you both turn your phones off when you ate spending time together, or to silent.
- Get along with his family and friends. Arrange barbecues or picnics and suggest he invite some of his friends and family along.
- Don't tweet or post about him constantly. Leave him some space and privacy.
- Tweet and post about him sometimes. You won't make a guy like you if he thinks you ignore him all the time.
- Don't flirt with his friends. Be nice to them, but much nicer to him!
- Have an opinion. You don't have to be passionate about absolutely everything, but it helps if you can express an opinion about interesting topics.
- Share decisions. Some decisions you can make alone. But share the responsibility for really important decisions that influence you both.
- Share quirky smiles and private jokes.
- Messy girls can be difficult to live with. But if you're creative, it is easier to accept.
- Dirty girls are never attractive.
- Get rid of that moustache. And the mono-brow if you have one.
- Don't nag. If you want to make a guy like you, talk to him. But don't nag him.
- Have a life. You need interesting things to talk about when he asks, 'How was your day?'
- Don't be too easy. Men like a challenge.
- Lean in when you're talking. Touch his leg occasionally.
- Move your hands close, almost touching his. (Makes him want to grab your hand.)
- Hold his gaze. Look deep into his eyes and see how he responds.
- Every time you part company, leave him wanting more!

Questions & Answers
Question: What can I do if my crush likes my friend, but my friend has a crush on someone else?
Answer: The world is filled with millions of people who have had exactly the same experience. Welcome to a very big ‘club’.
My advice is to let it play out. I’m guessing you’re a school student. Instead of putting yourself forward as some kind of consolation prize, just keep being friendly with them both. Don’t bother encouraging her to like your crush. And don’t let him bellyache to you about how much he likes her.
Instead of becoming the middle person in other relationships, I suggest you keep out of those conversations. The day may come when you are confident enough to say to your crush, ‘If a boy likes me and wants to ask me out, I want him to talk to me directly.’ But I don’t think you should use a line like that until you are old enough to actually date. Don’t waste it on a schoolyard romance because whether we like it or not, a romance in a schoolyard rarely lasts for long.
Better to be the kid who waits until early adult years to play the dating game. That way you don’t have an awkward history with someone who interests you when you’re older.

He is 4 or 5 years older than me I really need help because I have been heart broken many times and I don't know how love feels no more and I have no clue I like him but when I see him sometimes I feel some type of way.

Some of these are awful advise. You should never feel the need to change who you are for someone to like you. That's absurd. Even if you're a pesimistic, complainy bitch there will be someone out there who likes that fire in you. Be dirty, be free, be you.

You are right. A girl does not need to pretend she is perfect to make a guy like her. All she needs to do is just be natural, and be herself. It will make her more attractive and increase her chances of making the guy hers.

"Be comfortable in your own skin. Accept your height, ignore your acne. Like yourself if you want to make him like you." - Great advice!
The bottom line is if you can't be yourself in a relationship or like who you are when you are with someone you'll never be happy with them.
Be yourself and let the chips fall where they may.
If you're "into" someone you'll (naturally be more considerate) of them.
Each of us (chooses) our own friends, lovers and spouse.
Fortunately we live on a planet with over (7 Billion) people on it!
Odds are no matter what you look like or behave like you are someone's "type"! If you don't believe me go out to any mall, park, beach, movie theatre, restaurant, or church and you're bound to see people who you find completely "unattractive/ugly" either physically or personality wise and you're bound to still see them with a mate!
Regardless of who you are or what you do not everyone is going to like you!
However it also matters what (your type) is too.
The goal is to find someone who will love and appreciate you for who you are as oppose to you having to become someone else to be liked by them.
If someone has to (change their core being) to make a relationship "work" there's a good chance they are with the "wrong person".
"If you want something different (you) have to do something different."
Sometime you have to put yourself in the "his/her shoes" and imagine if and ask: "If I were (him/her) would I want someone like me?"
If the answer is "no" begin cultivating the traits you believe that type of person is attracted to. You can't tell people what they (should) like.
Like attracts like and opposites attract divorce attorneys!
Compatibility trumps compromise!
