Here are some tips...

never play "hard-to-get" cos think about it you love the guy,right? well,you want to have him and have him now! (+ teenage boy don't like "Hard-to-get"

What to do is be yourself, if you don't then your having what people call L.L ( lie love you can tell what it is by the name) and you don't want L.L

Maybe have a bit of make-up on but don't over do it,cos (if you've got to much make-up on) he's gonna be lovin the make-up not you your self.

And don't flirt if you don't how to,if you really want to or the guy you know likes girls firting then (trust me it works) practice with someone you really trust won't make fun of you and will help you, or you can practice by your self in the mirror (so you no if you look stupid or not while your doing it.)

NEVER!EVER! ASK A FRIEND TO ASK HIM OUT FOR YOU EVEN IF YOUR SCARED OF WHAT EVER! BOYS HATE IT WHEN YOU CAN'T ASK YOUR SELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And remeber be your self

and if he says no, well its not the end of the world and don't stop it from asking any1 else out!!!

Good luck

love

My Soccer Buddy

Theres a guy on my street, a soccer player, and the cutest one i'v seen.

I had a crush on him, ever since i saw him.

And every afternoon we go downstairs to play tips or soccer, and i started flirting with him, and he was flirtacious himself. I then told him i liked him, before i left for overseas, and while i was there, i talked to him, and he told me that he missed me, and when i got back from my holiday, he really wanted to see me, so 2 days after i came back i went downstairs, and he was really flirtacious and i went to one of the buildings because we were playing tips, and he was in, so i told him if he wanted to tip me, he had to hug me, being flirtacious myself, and he did. And ever since we met, hes been flirtacious and he never said "mwa" after a conversation and he does now, and im starting to get the feeling that he has something for me, but i dont want to ask him, because i'll sound desperate. But i'v been myself. And now because he knows i like him .. its kind of awkward, but i try and make it the least awkward as possible, and a couple of days earlier, my mother saw me with them and she told me off in front of them, and that was so embarrassing and he went home, and later that afternoon i spoke with him and he told me he was sad because i went inside, so i got a feeling he likes me. but i dont know what to do .. we've been friends for half a year, and i really like him.

But some advice is, be yourself, you want him to like you for who you are not what you are, and make sure your flirtacious, but not TOO much, you dont want him to thinkk your freakishly in love with him, when your around him, dont cross your arms, this gives boys a sign your not interested, and if you hear him talking about another girl, just act depressed and sad and walk away,, this way he'll know and hopefully stop .

thanks for reading my story.

You want a guy to notice you, and ask you out! Well i had the same problem, but after you follow these simple rule's getting a boy is really easy!Nom..

1.First make friends with the boy, asking him out straight away will lead to him thinking your desperate.

2.Make sure you always make your self look presentable, wear clothes that your comfatable in(but don't ever plaster yourself in make-up, nobody like's a fake)

3.Once you and this boy are friends, let him no that you like him, this will keep the door unlocked.

4.Play hard to get, but not too hard to ge oterwise he will think your not interested.

5.If he like's you back he should ask you out, dont say yes straigt away this will indicate that you have been waiting for him, and nobody like's a stalker.

6.Last tip, just be Yourself, and tell the truth at all costs.

To get a guy to like you? hmmm? well, be yourself. dont lie to him about ANYTHING seriously because boys hate liars. And try not to make it obvious that you like him, as a matter of fact, dont bring up the subject of "love and relationships" untilhe does. because when he brings it up than that means he is ready for that.ad the if you guys do establish that relationship where ou guys know your feelings for each other and it tuns out 2 be more than "jus friend" you must remember not to overdo it. give him his spce. the more you try to go after him and be with him, the faster he will get tired of you and pretty soon he will think you are annoying and lose interest. the more interest you show in him, the more he has you in his clutches and the more likely it is that he will tae advantage of you and yor feelings. he really may not be interested because you already chased him away with your annoyance, but if you are still interested and making it super obvious he knows tat he can get whatever he wants out of you whenever he wants an you, blinded by love, will be wlling to do whatever he wants and fall for is tricks. BE CAREFUL!! I hope this helps..

First of all, do you know this boy?

if so:

just be yourself, but add a little bit of what he likes into you. when you're around him try and always seem upbeat and positive. support him, but dont make it too obvious that you like him, other wise he may try and pull away. try and spend quite a bit of time with him. work what you have!! make him love you for you. dont go and being someone you're not because after a while, it wears off and you lose sight of who you really are. im 13 and my bf is 16. when i met him, he was a quiet boy in the corner, i made the first move of going and saying hi, and then just talking to him. i didnt make it look like i fancied him. just gradually become alot closer to him. and it should work. good luck!

Well, I know many people say don't pile on makeup & don't wear what some people think are silly clothes (eg mini denim skirts) but that's what most boys like nowadays!!

Look nice in school as often as you can & the word will spread that your even more gorgeous than you started out to be!!Also most importantly let your personality shine through as even though boys want pretty s their personality will lead them to dislike you!

Don't wear too much makeup.. Just put on mascara, eyeliner, lipgloss & a bit of foundation, but put it on lightly!!Boys love the natural look!Also wear a denim mini skirt once in a while & show off those gorgeous legs!! (HINT-fake tan or tights!!

secondly get contacts with his friends so u can go places with them and they will talk to the boy about u whne ur not there

and thirdly remeber time! it takes time. sometimes girls rewin there chances by rushin.

First of all you should learn to like yourself because boys like confidance in girls,

also you try and get the confidance to chat to the ones you like be natrel dont waffle on dont try and be one of the boys if you like football/sports great talk about it! if not dont pretend you do,Try t.v programs or films or holidays small talk to begin with also when you get more secure touch there arm to create a spark between you just fleetingly also eye contact but dont overdo it,

Even if some do end up as friends its always great to have boy-mates you will probebly end up with the right lad for you when you least expect it, so dont try despately whats ment to be will be in the mean time have fun Enjoy yourself your only 15 once Good Luck, Ditzy Blonde Chick :)

A reader, anonymous, writes (20 October 2006):

Teenage guys are still trying to work out what they like themselves. Most of my guy mates, who are about 15, say that sometimes they like girls who are pretty, who are clever, who are mysterious, who are mega-flirts, and those who are more reserved. So really, as the other two answers state, be yourself, then although you probably won't attract EVERYONE, you will attract people who are 'into' your kind of person.

I asked my best guy mate about this, and he said that all the girls that he likes, and has liked, have confidence in themselves. They believe that they're fabulous, and this self-belief is infectious, and doesn't come across as too confident. sbw1989 is right, guys don't like rejection. Especially when they are young and still quite unsure of themselves, their bodies and what's going on around them, dispite the front many guys put on.

My personal tip is... just be friendly, I used to try so hard to flirt with guys, and it never really got me anywhere, cos frankly I wasn't that good at it, I kept putting myself down and suffered from insecurity.

But now, I'm a bit older, and am happy to be me. I've got tons of guy mates, who are PERFECT to practice flirting with, and every now and then, I've found the greatest boyfriend in them.

My best friend has a motto, Work like you don't need the money, dance like no-one's watching, and flirt like you're in demand! And most probably, you will be!!!

sbw1989 agony auntThe answer is simple:

don't pretend to be someone you're not, don't pile on make-up, don't get a friend to tell said teenage boy you fancy them, don't be overkeen, yet don't blow them off if they speak to you and don't EVER do anything you're uncomfortable with.

Most importantly, what you DO do is be yourself completely. Any guy that doesn't like you for that is not worth knowing at all.
