How to attract a boy in school

Updated March 23, 2017

If you are in school, whether high school or college, you may want to attract a boy to date him. Being in a relationship with the right person is extremely nice, and you may feel like you're missing out when you see other couples. If you want to attract one of the many boys in your school you should follow a few steps that will change what kind of image you put forward, thus making you more attractive and more likely to attract a boy.

Make eye contact with everyone you see. This will forge a quick connection with everyone you pass, whether they are male or female, and will make you appear more friendly and approachable.

Say "hello" to everyone you meet after you are comfortable with eye contact. This will make you even more friendly, and guys will be more inclined to approach you and strike up a conversation.

Strike up conversations yourself. If a boy is waiting at the same bus stop as you, make a comment about the bus schedule, the weather, or just ask him a question. The same goes for the guy with the locker next to you, or the guy in the cafeteria line.

Avoid negative thoughts. If you walk past a mirror, do not criticise yourself or mentally mention your physical flaws. You're not perfect, nobody is, and nobody expects you to be. This positive self-image will translate into confidence, which will attract boys.

Put effort into your appearance every day. This doesn't mean you should overdo it, but you should dress up enough that you stand out a little and look like you have self-respect. This will in turn give you more self-respect, which will make you more attractive.

Exercise daily. This is not so much to lose weight or tone your body, but rather to give yourself another boost of confidence. The endorphin rush combined with the confidence you gain from meeting your exercise goals and becoming more fit will make you more attractive to boys.
