It can take a lot of work to get a guy to notice you if you're shy. However, there are several ways to get a guy to notice you even if you are not the aggressive type. Be sure to know as much as possible about the guy you like. Knowing the guy's hobbies and interests can help initiate conversation and allow a guy to feel comfortable talking about what matters to him. Taking a subtle approach has its advantages. Some guys are intimidated by women who come on too strong, so it can be better to take a less forward approach, allowing him to make the move.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Learn the guy's interests and hobbies. Research any sports he plays or enjoys to watch. Most guys enjoy sports. If you learn about the sports he watches or his favourite teams, that is a good way to engage in a conversation with him. Talking about common interests will encourage the guy you like to have more conversations with you.

  2. 2

    Flirt with him. Most guys cannot pick up on flirting behaviour. However, even if you are shy, you can do subtle things. He will appreciate you genuinely laughing at his jokes. Most guys enjoy any girl who laughs at their jokes, it makes them feel comfortable and encourages more interaction.

  3. 3

    Make eye contact with the guy you like. Even if you are shy, looking into the eyes of the guy you like shows him that you acknowledge his presence, and it can hint that you are interested in him.

  4. 4

    Smile. Smiling is a welcoming gesture. For guys, girls who smile appear more approachable. When someone smiles, she appears happy and joyful. Guys are drawn to women who smile and enjoy themselves. Something as small as smiling can go a long way to encouraging a guy to approach any woman. It is best to smile when making eye contact with a guy during any interaction, including general conversation to passing by him at school or work.

  5. 5

    Dress to impress. The way you dress will make a difference to a guy. If you dress well and can talk football, you increase your chances of getting the guy's attention. Dress attractively but not too provocative. Modest skirts and dresses are acceptable. Revealing too much can give the wrong impression.
