Fresh perspective on dating issues compiled in consultation with friends in North America, Australia and African nations.

What can a girl do to impress a boy? This is a frequently asked question posed by many girls who are interested in a guy, and are looking for ways to get his attention easily and faster. There are definitely many things you can do to impress a guy you like. I have discussed this topic with some of my international friends, and will discuss the points we all agree on.

5 Things You Can Do to Impress a Guy You Like

First, you need to get a guy to notice you, and then, you'll want to keep him interested in you. But how do you get a guy's attention without being seen as desperate?

Impressing the guy you like shouldn’t be a one-dimensional thing, but something you need to approach from many different angles. One technique might not be enough to get his attention (or hold it), so it is best to come up with a few good ideas if you want to succeed with your goal of trying to impress him.

Here are five things you can do to impress a guy you like. Good luck!

1. Be Good at Something

We are all impressed by someone who excels. If you are good at something, people notice. And the guy you like will probably also be impressed. You don't have to choose something he's good at too. It can be really exciting to talk to someone who can achieve what you find really difficult.

My Australian friend loves going to the beach, but is not a good surfer. He is most impressed by women who can grab a surfboard and ride the waves.

An American friend is really impressed by girls who are cheerleaders. But he admits when he was at school, he was in awe of a girl who was brilliant at math. He couldn't understand how she could calculate difficult problems in her head, without even needing a pen and paper. (He struggled to get the answers cheating with a calculator!)

We all agree that girls who are good at just about anything impress us. Here's a word of warning though. If you are exceptionally good academically, it might be hard for the guy you like to approach you. You might have to speak to him first. Yes, guys can get inferiority complexes too!

2. Be Yourself

Be confident in your own skin. Don't try to be what you aren't because that can easily be noticed by the guy you are trying very hard to impress.

Guys don't like girls who are fake. We like our women to be genuinely friendly. Genuinely interesting. Genuinely interested . . . or up-front and honest about their disinterest in a topic or event.

Don't pretend you really like football, fishing or bushwalking if you won't enjoy doing it every weekend. That will just cause problems in the future. Lots of couples have different interests and go their separate ways for a while. But when they get together again, they are excited to see each other and share their news!

3. Take Care of What You Wear

There are so many ways you can impress a guy with the clothes you wear. Of course, it depends on the guy, and it depends on you. But the general rule is 'take care of what you wear'.

Most women settle into a personal style when choosing their clothing. If you want to impress a guy, give some thought to the clothes you are wearing. Tracksuits are great when you are doing something sporty. And yes, they can be really comfortable to wear around the house. But if you are someone who always wears baggy tracksuit pants and a loose-fitting sweater everywhere you go, that's not very impressive.

Branch out and try something new. At least one outfit that's cute and tight-fitting. If you always wear runners, try a different type of footwear.

If you are afraid you'll look uncomfortable and awkward wearing your new outfit out in public, wear it at home for a while first. Get used to seeing your new image in the mirror, walking in your new shoes, and sitting in a tight skirt. (Or any skirt, if you generally wear pants all the time.)

No need to buy an outfit that's incredibly revealing. Low cleavage doesn't really impress guys. Yes, probably every male you pass will notice your exposed skin. But that's not necessarily because they are impressed.

It can be a lovely change, however, when a girl wears a different of outfit to her normal choice. Not only can a new style of clothing draw more attention to her figure, but a new outfit can make a statement about her personality and confidence. So take care what you wear.

Bare skin is very sexy. But a bare shoulder can be even more attractive and enticing than cleavage.

4. Let Him Know You Notice Him

Is this so hard? Is it really difficult for girls to give a guy some kind of encouragement?

It really impresses me when a girl allows herself to smile. Or laugh. Or blush. Some kind of indication that she's noticed a guy actually exists.

You don't have to throw yourself at a man, or pretend to be captivated by every word he says. Being a bit aloof can be kind of sexy and appealing. But being a stone wall doesn't work for many women. Sure a few might get away with it, but it comes with a big risk.

If you like a guy, give him a clue. Let him know you notice him, and he'll be more likely to pay attention to you as well.

Guys love it when a girl laughs, smiles or blushes. Anything that gives him a clue she's noticed him!

5. Lend a Helping Hand

This is not to suggest you become a doormat. You're not going to become the girl who is always trying to stick her nose into everyone's business. You won't be standing by to jump into action every time someone needs a helping hand. But you will be keeping an eye out for that perfect opportunity to lend a helping hand as a strategy to impress the guy you like.

There are lots of ways you could be helpful, and gain the attention of that special guy.

  • Help his friend (without looking like you're hitting on his friend, of course.)
  • Help his little sister (with something like homework or music lessons.)
  • Volunteer for a charity group (ideally in a place he walks past every day.)
  • If you know his mother or grandmother, keep an eye out for opportunities to lend a hand.

If your goal is to impress him, look for an opportunity to step up and help. Not only will he notice you, but you'll have something to talk about. Any involvement you have in any of the examples above gives you a great conversation starter. Helping someone else just might be the key to helping you impress the guy of your dreams.

Questions & Answers

  • I like a boy. How do I tell him or express my feelings to him?

    If you're not even talking with each other yet, don't stress about telling him you like him or expressing your 'feelings' yet. That's not a wise move. You might think he seems really nice from a distance, but he might be really awful when you get to know him. So I suggest you spend time getting to know him first. Talk, chat, laugh, all that kind of stuff.

    If things are going really well between you, it becomes an easy step to say, 'I like you. You're nice.' Or 'I like you. You make me laugh.' It doesn't have to be a big deal though. Just tell him.

  • How can I impress a boy who thinks I'm ugly?

    Are you asking me how to impress a guy who thinks you’re ugly? Gee, I don’t think you should bother trying to impress a guy like that.

    Forget him. Find a guy who sees your great qualities and appreciates you for who you are. You don’t need a loser like this other guy in your life.

  • Should I be a tomboy or a girly girl? I am a tomboy originally. Will he like me when I oil my hair and wear two ponies?

    If you're a tomboy, you're probably not going to be comfortable pretending to be a girly girl. That is, unless you're looking for an excuse to be less of a tomboy, and are feeling like you want to be more girly. I believe we should all be true to ourselves. So I don't believe you should try to be someone you're not.

  • I have a crush on this guy in the grade above me, but his friend said he doesn't like me. What do I do to impress him?

    How does his friend know if the guy likes you or not? He might have a secret crush on you. I think you should just wait and see what happens. Of course, you might have to wait a couple of years before you get a chance to talk, and maybe nothing will come of it, but it is kind of nice just having a crush when young, even if it never becomes an actual relationship.

  • What do I do if the boy I like has feelings for somebody else?

    There’s not much you can do if he likes someone else. Just keep being someone worth noticing. He might grow tired of his current crush. But even if he doesn’t, someone else will spot you. And they may be even more perfect for you.

      Sure, you should go up to the guy and talk with him. Maybe start with, “Hello again. We met at ... “ and then tell him your name.

      Don’t just expect him to remember who you are and what your name is. That can be really awkward. Give him the clues he needs. Start the conversation with confidence. That’ll show him you’re easy to talk with.

      Most guys who just turned 18 (and girls too) get caught up in the whirlwind of ‘freedom’ and enjoying new opportunities. Yes, if you’re not old enough to join him on his adventures, you might get left behind. But when you turn 18, you’ll have new adventures too. Whether or not that guy is among them, time will tell.

      Hello, Nameless. I think you’ve probably answered your own question. You’re thinking you’re just a child next to the older guy, so I’m guessing he does too. Don’t be too disappointed . You’ll get your turn for romance when you are older.

      @Kinza, I deleted your comment. My best advice for you is to never put your full name on the internet when you are talking about a teacher like that. Some day in the future someone might google search your name and find what you wrote, which would be embarrassing.

      Leave your teacher alone and get on with your life. It is normal for kids to have a crush on a teacher, but not to keep obsessing when it is obvious he has no interest in you other than what is required professionally.

      @Xxxx it seems to me you've found a nice guy who talks nicely to you and other girls. That's a good thing. Let him be the example of the kind of guy you hope to meet and match with some time in the future.

      But this guy is senior and committed to another girl so he's not the one for you. We all have crushes in our youth that don't work out the way we'd like to dream. But every one of those unsuccessful crushes helps us to decide the kind of person we eventually want to make our life partner. So that's a good thing, eventually.

      I started liking a guy recently. He's my seat partner and I'm just getting to know him now. He's really nice to me (but it's just how he acts around everyone). I really want to attract him, but how do I become more important to him than just a seat partner or friend? How do I approach him and what kind of conversations should I start? At class, he's usually pretty studious, and so am I, which makes it hard to start usual conversations. I don't want to distract him. I tried chatting with him, but he doesn’t really try to keep the conversation going (But he's rarely online, so...) Help? It's really hard as an introvert but I really want to work this out.

      Natasha, it is easy. Walk up to the guy and say ‘Hi’. Ask him how his day is going, what has he been up to lately, that kind of thing.

      Start a conversation. You don’t have to talk for long the first time. Just break the ice and make it easier to talk to each other in the future.

      Hi Keyana. It is perfectly normal to be in a fluster when you’re young and excited about the chance of dating. If your crush asks you to the formal, say ‘Yes, that’d be great ‘ or ‘Ok It’s a date’ and just go along and have. A good time.

      Even if he doesn’t ask you, you should go and enjoy yourself. Don’t stress about it. Focus on having fun!

      He sounds boring and uncaring, Himanshi. Not the kind of boy you'd want to spend much time with. I think you should look for another, nicer guy to get involved with.

      You're smart to see he will hurt you in the future. So don't give him the chance. Just drop him.

      Sarah, there's a few reasons why you should be nervous about meeting a facebook friend. The main one is not knowing who they really are. Lots of people have fake facebook accounts. You don't want to set yourself up to be the victim of a crime.

      However if you are certain your friend is who they say and definitely goes to the school they say and all that kind of thing, you might choose to meet them. (In a public place, bringing a friend along for protection.)

      I don't think you should be afraid he won't like you in reality. Let's think about this, Your choice is to meet him and risk losing his friendship and interest ... or never meet him and ultimately lose his friendship and interest.

      Either way, you lose out. The only way you could possibly have a future with him is to meet him, I guess. But if you are young, maybe you're better off waiting for a few years and see what happens then.

      Please, Sarah, whatever you do, don't send him photos of yourself that are inappropriate. And don't let your texting get hot and steamy.

      I'm guessing you are using a genuine facebook account and so what you're writing today will probably stick around for a long time.

      By the way, have you heard that facebook is in trouble because their Private Messaging is not private? Lots of 'third parties' apparently have access to our private messaging.

      There comes a time in everyone's life when we have to admit our friends were right about something, and we kick ourselves for not heeding their advice earlier. I'm thinking this looks like one of those times for you, GW.

      I like to think you're going to be wise enough to switch off any interest in the guy your best friend is warning you about. Don't wait until he's mean to you. Just make the decision that he's not the right guy, and get excited about meeting Mr Perfect some time in the future.

      I met this guy at my school a year ago. I find myself really attracted to him and all my friends want us to date. Last year, we found out he was also attracted to me, but neither of us had the guts to ask the other one out. This year is a different story. I’m learning more and more that we really do have a lot in common, but he all of a sudden and got all secretive. He does show signs that he likes me, but not everyday. He sits behind me in my ela class and I pay attention to what he does, and most of the time, he does show signs. It whenever he friends tease him about it, he gets all red in the face and denies liking me. And then there’s his personality. My friends have been telling me that he can be extremely mean, but I’ve never seen that side of him. Then yesterday I started to see that side and I’m not sure that I like it. My bff has been telling me that she’s seen him “change acts” when he knows I’m nearby. I’m afraid I might like something that isn’t real. What should I do?

      Josie, I'm sorry I didn't write back to you earlier. I found your questions and here's what I think.

      The first guy behaved in a way that says 'warning' to me. He's obviously the jealous type and that whole business about suddenly having a girlfriend is weird. If he did get a girlfriend so quickly, that's a sign he wasn't really into you. And if he didn't really but just said he did, that shows he's into mind games and not being honest.

      I know you liked him before all the fuss, but I don't think you should even consider trying to have a relationship with someone who becomes furious and irrational like he did. The future will be filled with problems with a guy like him.

      The guy with the warm smile who responds to your messages sounds like he's mature and much more interesting. If you think you both have a crush on each other, that's great!

      I also like the fact you live so close to each other. There's lots of chances for you to cross paths and say hi. And because you can see him from your window, you can wave. (If he had a girlfriend, I'm sure you would have seen them together sometime in the past few years.)

      I'm glad you recovered from your embarrassment and made contact with him again. Next time you see him in the bar or near your home, I think you should try and make plans to spend some more time with him socially.

      If there's a movie you'd like to see, ask if he's interested in going with you. Or you could ask him if he's ever been to a particular restaurant or coffee shop near your home ... ask for his opinion of it. Then say you'd like to check it out but you don't really want to go there alone.

      There's lots of ways you could make it clear to him you're interested in spending more time with him and getting to know him better. Gee, maybe you could ask him if he likes Mexican food or Indian food or some other type of food you like, and then tell him you're planning on cooking some to try out a recipe that looks interesting. Would he like to come around and taste test it when you're cooking? (Instead of just asking him to come for the dinner, I think it is more fun if he comes while you're preparing it. Much less formal and more fun. You can share a wine while it is cooking.)

      Yes, I definitely think the second guy sounds like your best option. Good luck.

      I like a boy whose really sweet a does really nice things for people. I don't know if gen likes me back beacause every time we try to get to know each other things happen to keep us apart. I don't know if he just wants to be my friend and polite or if he actually likes me. What should I do?

      This year on Oct 18, after school waiting for the bus, I started talking to my friends friend. And he seemed interested in me that day for some reason. It was my birthday that day of course, and I said to him it was my birthday and I was hoping for a birthday kiss from someone but I didn't get one:D And he made a cute face like he was thinking about it, idk how to explain it. And I had to go so I said bye. And a couple days after that I didn't see him and than I found out his relative past away. I felt really bad because he seemed so happy before. And now hes just distant, short in his words, hardly makes eye contact, and is not interested in what Im saying. But before all this happened he gave me a kiss when he got back:) I was actualy forced by his friends and my friends to go up to him cause I was so shy. Took about 4 attempts for him to kiss me right:DD, (i dont think he kissed a girl before) but he has very soft lips. Hes a good guy. Hes just mysterious to me. Im dwelling over the fact that hes not interested in me. Idk what to do, his friends say that hes always boring and awkward like that. I just dont know what to do. I want to confront him but Im afraid what he might say. Can someone help me out?

      I love a boy. I started liking him in 2018 and I still love him. He is also the inspiration of all the romantic poems I have written which are appreciated by all those who read them. But, he already has a girlfriend. But I don't want to take him away from his girlfriend. Because, he got her after a lot of hardwork. He started liking her in 2014 and finally she accepted his love this year, after so many years. But I know that she is doesn't actually love him. Even he was aware of this. But still he is happy being with her. I can go on cursing his girlfriend but, when I remember the smile on his face while talking to her, I don't feel like doing so. I don't want to take away his peace. I know he is very handsome, kindhearted, has a good moral character etc(his goodness will not end) . But he is incomplete with the smile on his face . I just want to see him happy. When he is happy, I am also happy.

      He might also like me too not sure he used to like my recent pictures but then I was very rude to him and he stopped liking them ever since but yesterday at school he could not stop staring at me.And in the hall ways he left his friends and past me in the hall like 20 times I was sitting down .I don’t like his friend (they think I like someone else) and also in the class I am with him (computer class)everyone including the teacher made up a thing that I like this kid named (Jon) and all they talk about is that ,but I told everyone I hate Jon no one listens so my mood break and I became rude .Even before I had stronger feelings for him I saw him look at me a couple of times when I was looking away .Yesterday I had my earphones and I asked the teacher if I can listen to music and before the teacher replied he said look Mr I didn’t even bring mine because he got in trouble for using it the other day !:d He talks to other girls but doesn’t seem to notice me (maybe it’s because he knows I reject lots of people

      Am 21 and not very open to the extent that I can't even start conversations properly with people. I have few friends and always indoor as well... I met this guy at school and we became classmates then friends of which some students started saying we were a thing but one day, my friend made fun of him saying am going on a date whereas he had already given me a biscuit of which I said "am gonna eat it with my date" He suddenly turned mute and his face started changing (red and green) so my friend told me "he's furious" then he said "why will u give the biscuit to another guy" I replied saying it was a joke and that I was sorry but he gave a deaf ears to my apology. He didn't come to school the next day neither did he replied to my messages but came to school only to say that he's gotten a girlfriend overnight.. His friend told us that it seems he liked me but was afraid to say it and I was blunt to his feelings all those times... Afterwards his behaviour towards me changed even though we talked and all and I asked why he was absent, didn't reply to my messages and he suddenly having a girlfriend... All he said was "why do u care?" I felt down the whole week so noticed and asked if everything was alright but I said yes... We left school like that and I must confess that I liked his company to bits... Now where I stay I know a guy who I don't know whether he's taken or not but guess so even though I've never seen him with a girl in the last three years(only in our neighborhood since I don't go out a lot)... We greet each other with a warm smile and sometimes ask each others health but we kinda not get too far with it... Strangely for me, we seem to have a crush on each other though am not sure but that's the vibe I get anytime I see him.. I once started a conversation with him on messanger of which he surprisingly responded but didn't know how to go ahead so I stopped since then I was embarrased to look at him whenever I see him.. I saw him one day and didn't mind him awkwardly, he also didn't say a word.. But after some weeks, we started greeting each other again especially in a bar we frequently see each other since my friend's dad owns it. I normaly see him on weekends and oh we live in the same house but different apartments so I usually see him through my window. Any ideas about the two guys and for me as well please?

So his friends untied one of my shoe and the guy that i like offered to tie my shoe. I hesitated but still let him tie my shoe and i put my foot lower and he said "cmon put your foot higher im not going to hurt you, i promise." So i put my foot up higher amd his friends said "awe you guys would make a great couple" he kept tying my shoe but looked up and smiled. I can't tell if he likes me or not but im pretty sure that he does.

      Tell him if he asks you out you'll say yes, but he's wasting his time chasing your friend because she says she just sees him like a brother ... and you're really not enjoying hearing him talk about her all the time.

      Then give him time to think about all of that. Maybe he'll ask you out, even if it is not right away. Meanwhile, please stop the 'killing me inside' way of thinking. He's just a guy that you like. Nothing more significant than that. If you don't get together with this guy, there will be another better guy somewhere in your future. So try to keep perspective.

      Hi DuDu. I’m hearing you. Here’s what I suggest. Spend the time asking him questions and talking about things and places that interest you ... until you hit on something you have in common or an interest you share.

      Then quick as a flash, without waiting because then it becomes awkward, suggest you go to (or do) whatever it is you discover you have in common. That can be as simple as ‘Oh, I’d love to go there. Want to come with me?’

      Because you’re an adult you can make a firm date without having to ask parents for permission or any other messing around. So I’m thinking it should be pretty easy for you to just make a suggestion and then make it happen. If he’s interested I’m sure he’ll jump at the chance to join you.

      Hi Daniel, really nice posts you have. And all questions are related to the younger student population. well, even the grown ups have issues with making guys like them hehe and impressing them. I just met a guy who is smart, beautiful and really nice. He is a friend of a friend and i don't usually hang out that much with my friend. But we are always going to house parties and bdays together. My crush has suggested that we should meet again like a group. The thing is how do I take it from there. I mean i will talk to him and be myself and not go overboard. but I am feeling that i will not have many opportunities to impress him so the ones i am going to meet him on need to count. So what to do. how to build a bridge between me and him??

      Hi Bubble. You know what a pleasant surprise it was to see the guy after five years? Well aaa other five years will pass just as quickly. And when you see the guy then, you’ll be ready to try dating him because the age gap won’t be such an issue.

      Childhood flames sometimes turn into adult partners. What spoils your chances of future happiness with a guy is trying to stumble into a relationship too early. So I suggest you wait.

      There is a guy I liked when I was in class 4th and he was in 6th and after 5 years I met him yesterday of course he is in 11th class as of now. He is two years older then me. But earlier when we were kids we both used to like each other. And I still like that guy. So I met him yesterday in a party I was really happy and excited and we had a eye contact for like 10 seconds or so and we both were kind of blushing and smiling. We both were really happy to see each other. But I can't predict anything as of now bcz after so long we met yesterday I don't have his contact number or anything. So I just wanted to know how can I get him to like me or does he even likes me?

      If the guy can’t be nice all the time, walk away. Do you really want to be involved with someone whose moods change daily? That can’t possibly be an attractive proposition for a long term relationship.

      It is worth waiting for a guy you can trust to be consistently kind and pleasant to you.

      Joy, you need to ease up a bit. The guy probably got busy or his phone battery went flat or someone started talking to him face to face and he put his phone away. If you’re going to stress out like this, you’ll waste a lot of time and effort. Not worth the drama, really.

      I know you said you met him, but ‘April 2018’ is this month. So I’m wondering if you have actually met him, or just added that bit so you don’t sound like you’ve not met him yet.

      Here’s a word of warning ... for now and in the future. The cute young guy you think you’re talking to online might be a dirty old man, or a predator even if he’s young.So it is really dangerous to ‘develop feelings’ for someone you don’t actually know anything about. If he’s not a part of your real world and none of your friends know him, beware.

      I don’t believe you should give him your address for your party in case he becomes a stalker. And you should NEVER agree to ‘sneak off’ and meet him. Girls have been murdered that way.

      Here’s another clue to keep you safe. If a guy tells you he’s ‘ugly’, you should believe him. He’s probably talking about his personality and is giving you a disguised kind of warning. There’s a big difference between ‘I’m not really good looking’ and ‘I’m ugly’.

      So ... I think you should forget about the online guy. Find a nice guy who you meet in person, who other people know and respect. And when you start texting with the new guy, don’t stress if he doesn’t write back straight away.

      Okay, so you probably won’t have a boyfriend before this coming birthday... but I’m guessing you’ll have found someone special (who you can safely trust) before your next birthday. Now that you have a better appreciation for the value in finding a local guy, you’ll probably view them more positively. (And you won’t risk becoming another police statistic for online predators.)

      Kaelynn, I think you should just talk with the guy without letting the whole ‘liking him’ thing get in the way. Having a crush is fun. We all know most crushes never progress to a relationship, but that shouldn’t stop us from enjoying them.

      Yes, you might be one of the lucky ones who ends up dating their crush, but don’t stress about it if you’re not. I believe he’ll notice if you just respond to your friends telling him you like him in an easy-going way. Don’t deny it, but don’t make a big deal out of it.

      ‘Yes, I said I like you, because I do. Doesn’t mean I want to marry you or spend all day every day with you. I just said I like you. That’s okay, isn’t it?’

      He’ll probably say ‘yes’, and you’ll say ‘Good. So let’s just get on with the day, shall we?’

      If he likes you, he’ll find a way to let you know.

      So I met this guy through instagram, we talked since 2017, I started having feelings for him. During our convo, I sometimes ask him if he wants to catch up,, he says he’s keen and asks what were going to do (we have never met in person) but then when the day of our hangout is close by, he gives me excuses. I like this (i havent really told him my feelings yet).. he tells me his ugly but i really dont think so. Around April 2018, we had a school ball, and that’s the first time I’ve met him and we took a photo together, i was so happy that I finally got to meet him. My thoughts on him hasnt changed. I messaged him on insta.. we started talking for a bit.. and messaged him again and talked for abjt..(thats only becoz i like him).. i messaged him again saying “hiii” and he replied with “Yo” and then i asked him “Hows it” he hasnt replied its been hours and hours :( I just feel sad when he doesnt reply back i just feel like im bothering him and annoying. I also plan on inviting him on my bday party sooon. I really hope he comes. Should i just stop talking to him and just messaged him when I invite him to my party? What should i do?

      April, if you’re going to a new school there will be lots of new boys there. You’ll have a much better time if you wait to find a guy who doesn’t seem agitated when you contact him. I think you should be checking out all the options instead of focusing on one guy you happened to meet at the pool.

      Katie, you won’t know if you don’t try. Even if he tells his sisters and You somehow get teased, you can simply say, ‘I just said hello. Is there something wrong with that?’

      If you’re concerned about your weight shaking your confidence when it comes to boys, this is probably a good time to look at making changes to your diet and exercise habits. Nothing dramatic, just simple modifications that will help with your long term health.

      Even if you never get to know this guy, there’s bound to be other guys in the future. It shouldn’t be a problem if you’re carrying a bit of extra weight, as long as you’re fit and healthy enough to keep up with a future partner who might be into long walks and challenging you to games of tennis etc. Fitness is important.
