How to Flirt With a Guy in High School

By on December 10, 2013

Flirting with your crush in high school can be a tricky endeavor. You may not know what to say to him, or how to get him to notice you, and often nerves get the better of you before you even approach him. However, there are several good ways to flirt with a guy when you’re in high school. All you need to do is read the tips below, and try them out in class when your crush is there and you’re feeling brave!

Smile and make frequent eye-contact

Use your body language to flirt with your crush across the classroom – you can let him know you like him without saying a word! Try making eye contact with him and smiling – it’ll show him that you’re open and friendly, and that you have taken notice of him. If he smiles back, and you’re feeling bold, you can even wink at him or raise your eyebrows to get a reaction.

For a lasting first impression, draw attention to your lips and eyes with some carefully applied makeup. The key is to be subtle and natural – avoid wearing too much makeup or drawing too much attention to yourself.


Write him a note

It may sound old-school and a bit silly, but writing your crush a note can be a great way to flirt. It’s often hard to talk to someone during classes, so slipping them a note is a discreet and fun way to communicate – just don’t get caught! Keep your conversation simple and friendly by asking him a question or commenting on the lesson. If you’re stuck with what to say, you can always play it safe and resort to asking him for a pencil to borrow.


Sit next to him

One easy way to get him to notice you is to close the physical gap between the two of you. Sit next to him in class, or at lunch, and make an effort to start a conversation. If you haven’t spoken to him yet, take the opportunity to introduce yourself. Find some things that you have in common, and mention something interesting about yourself so that he remembers you. The next time you see him, even if it’s in the corridors or outside of school, make eye-contact, smile and say hello.


Compliment him

Make him feel special by giving him genuine, heartfelt compliments. If you like his hair or admire his talent for art, let him know. For extra impact, make eye contact while telling him how awesome he is, and gently touch his arm or his hand. If you’re feeling naughty, you can make comments on how sexy his jumper/jeans/shoes are, and that you think he’s more attractive with his hair done a certain way.


Organize to see him outside of school

Although school can be a lot of fun (at times, when you’re not falling asleep in math), you can’t really get to know someone that well until you’ve spent time with them outside of school. You can play it safe and arrange to see him with a group of mutual friends (e.g., going to movies or hanging out at the park), or you can be bold and suggest you do something together as just the two of you. Keep it casual, unless you’re ready to ask him out on a date.

A good way to broach the subject is to ask him to help you with something – homework, sports, or even a hobby of his that you’d like to try. Be creative and find ways to spend a bit of quality alone-time with him.


Make him laugh – be playful

A great way to flirt with a guy you like is to make him laugh. Show your sense of humour when you talk to him, and feel free to joke around and be playful when you’re with him. He’ll see you as a carefree and fun girl to be around – characteristics of a good girlfriend. However, make sure that you don’t become “one of the guys” – keep your fun side flirty and feminine.


Keep it tame when at school

Although you may have strong feelings for your crush, refrain from excessive flirting at school. Besides distracting you from your schoolwork (yes, it is quite important), you may gain a reputation for being a flirt, or worse. Some subtle, playful flirting is appropriate for school, and you can always continue during lunch times or after school.


Finally, always remember to be yourself. It’s easy to be influenced by your friends and classmates, especially when they’re watching your every move during the school day. People can tell if you’re being genuine or putting on a front, so when you’re flirting with your crush, try to be as genuine as possible. There’s no need to try and impress him – simply follow these tips, be your fabulous self, and see where things lead!
