How To Tell A Guy You Want Him Without Seeming Desperate

Do you want to pursue a romantic relationship with a guy you like? Although you don't want to come across as desperate, there are 12 tips you can follow to make things exciting instead of awkward.

1. Invite Him Out Somewhere Fun

Want to see how well you connect with a guy? Invite him to an activity that he enjoys. While you're there, throw in some flirtatious jokes and ensure that he understands it's a one-on-one hangout.

2. Dish Him A Compliment

Let the guy know that you find him attractive and sexy. Sending him a text about how good-looking he was earlier in the day is sure to linger in his mind.

3. Check If He's Single

By asking a guy if he's single, you're already showing interest. Take it a step further and let him know that you like it when he confirms that he is flying solo, by giving him a flirtatious smile or biting your lip.

4. Go A Bit Green

Being overly jealous can damage a relationship, so it's best not to show too much of the "green-eyed monster" side. However, if another woman shows interest in him, it's okay to express a little jealousy in a lighthearted way. For example, you can say, "You and I are more compatible than you and her," and add some laughter to show that you're not being too serious.

5. Lead Him To The Dance Floor

Dancing with a guy is an excellent opportunity to be flirtatious and seductive without feeling like you're putting yourself out there too much. It's also a great way to assess his interest in you by observing how he moves with you.

6. Let Your Body Do Some Talking

Nonverbal cues play a significant role in conveying your interest in someone. Don't be afraid to touch his arm while conversing or lean in when he speaks to show that you're engaged.

7. Show Him He's On Your Mind

Show him that you care by doing little things like buying him a surprise coffee when he's working late or sending him a funny meme when he needs a laugh.

8. Be A Little Cheeky

Being playful and confident is a great way to express your feelings without actually saying, "I like you." When he asks you something, respond with a surprising "Sure, I'll go out with you" to catch him off guard and see his reaction. If he's taken aback, don't worry; you can always laugh it off with confidence.

9. Show Him That He's Your Type

Avoid the mundane approach of simply telling him that he's your type. Instead, add some creativity to your confession. When he talks about his previous relationship and how he got hurt despite his loyalty, appreciate his quality of being faithful by saying something like, "You seem like an amazing boyfriend material."

10. Tell A Mutual Friend

Don't worry about appearing like you're in a teenage romantic comedy movie. If you trust your mutual friend to keep it low-key, there's a chance that your interest in him could get to him and make him think about you differently. Your friend may even be able to offer you some tips on how to approach him, especially if she knows him better.

11. Ask Leading Questions

Initiate the conversation by asking, "Do you think friends could be more than just friends?" and then build upon the conversation. You could then ask for his opinion of you. This will open up the discussion and give you an idea of his thoughts. Additionally, this will plant the seed in his mind that you have feelings for him.

12. Or, Be More Direct

If you're tired of dropping hints and being playful, be straightforward. When discussing weekend plans, don't hesitate to say, "I want to go out with you. Are you interested?" It's not that complicated. The worst that can happen is he declines due to being busy or not interested. It's his loss. But, at least you will know where you stand.
