Ten Ways

Day 23 – a YouTube video

I actually have two videos, but they go hand in hand. Here they are. Go watch them now, then come back.

Why are you still reading this? Go watch!

Ten Ways to Get the Right Guy to Like You

Okay, now that you've seen it, I have a little to say about it.


Everything he said in the video was true.

We like it when you show interest. We don't want to just be arm candy to you. Let us know you care about what we care about.

Encourage us. Girls need affirmation. We need to know that we're good at something, and coming from you means a lot.

Compliment us. Like I said, we need affirmation.

Get to know our friends and family. This goes hand- in- hand with 'Show interest,' because it shows us that you care about people we care about.

Act chivalrous. This is a huge one for me. My dad's always taught me that men should open doors for you, pull our your chair, pay for you, and carry your heavy things. Though some woman think that it's degrading, I love it.

Give us space. We love you, but we need our space too. We have other relationships with friends and family to maintain.

Keep your hands to yourself. We don't belong to you. We have boundaries.

Make us feel safe. We need to feel protected, and you should be our safe place. We should be able to tell you anything, not have to hide anything.
Be our best friend. When I date and eventually a guy, I want to be friends with him. I don't want it to be only gushy and romantic stuff. I want to be able to do things with him that I'd do with friends.


Everything he said in the video was true.

If you want a guy who respects you, who treats you like an equal, who is the right guy, be willing to wait. Don't date just for the sake of dating.

Respect yourself. If you don't, you're going to attract the kind of guy your mother's warned you about.

Be kind. No guy wants to date a girl who treats him like trash, just like you don't want a boyfriend who's a jerk.

Show interest in him. It's a two way street, they like it when we show interest in them too. Make him feel needed.

Guys need to be needed, just like girls want to be wanted.

When he acts chivalrous, don't go all 'women's rights' on him. He knows that you can open the door, but he's doing it for you because he cares about you.

Put some clothes on, gals. This goes along with respect yourself, because if you don't, the guy won't get to know you, he'll be to focused on what he can see.

Ignore Hollywood. Plain and simple.

Set boundaries. If you know your boundaries before you get into a tough spot, it's easier to stop.

Be yourself. Personality is what matters, so don't act like someone else to impress someone.
