How to Get a Boyfriend in Middle School
Alright girls, so you are hoping to figure out how to get a boyfriend in middle school. Often some of the things we do can actually scare guys away so we are going to talk about those things. Luckily, it’s not that hard and if you just relaxed and focus on being a good person, the right guy will come along when he’s supposed to.
Don’t Smother Him
The number one thing you should never do is smother a guy. You shouldn’t talk to him every time you see him and you shouldn’t call or text him all the time. If you’re interested in him that’s great but if you become obsessed with him, he will not want to hang out with you. Guys are attracted to girls who don’t need them to be happy. Girls who have strong friendships, are involved in school activities and do their best at everything are more likely to attract a nice boy.
Have Your Own Interests
Don’t think about him all the time, make time to focus on your favorite activities and to hang out with your friends. If he sees that you are good at things, he will be impressed. If he sees that people like you because you’re really nice and fun to hang out with, he will want to hang out with you too. Don’t try to be make trouble in class or skip class to impress him. You don’t have to break the rules to get a nice guy to like you. If any guy tries to encourage you to do something against the rules, he’s probably not going to do well in school and he might not be that nice to you either.
Work On Building Your Friendships
If you really know how to be a good friend and have strong friendships, he will notice that quality and feel comfortable with you. If you don’t make an effort to be friends with people, he probably won’t want to be friends with you. We have to make an effort to be nice to people and treat them with kindness in order for people to also be kind to us.
Get To Know Him and Be Patient
Even if you think you like a guy, just get to know him better to see if you actually have some things in common. You may spend some time together with his friends and realize they are all jerks and you don’t feel comfortable with how they choose to spend their time. You want a boyfriend that is considerate and will try to be a good person. It’s important that you don’t rush getting a boyfriend so you don’t end up dating a dud.
Have A Fun Sense of Style
Make an effort to be stylish and comfortable so your natural beauty is highlighted. Guys love girls that smell nice and take pride in being put together. Again, don’t be desperate and wear really revealing clothing because the good guys don’t go for that look. They want a girl who is confident, smart and kind.
Chat With Him After Class
If you like a guy you shouldn’t ignore him completely. Just be friendly and sometimes (not all the time) chat with him after class. You don’t have to tell him you like him, just ask him how his day is going and how his classes are going. Try not to always talk about school work because we know that can be very boring.
Find Someone That Likes What You Like
If you want to find a boyfriend, you should see which guys like the things that you’re into. If you love student government maybe you will find another guy in your class that does too. Think about it, if you’re in the band and always going to band practice, it will be easy to talk to him and hang out with him and you could help each other practice too.
Don’t Like The Guy That All The Girls Like
Here’s some advice to keep you from getting frustrated when you want to get a boyfriend. Don’t like the guy that all the other girls like. Often the guys that get all the attention end up with a big head and get so used to that attention that they end up just flirting with everyone. It’s not fun to date a guy that flirts with everyone.
Smile And Say Hi When You See Him
If there is a certain guy you have a crush on you can get him to notice you by smiling at him. It’s a very simple way to see if he likes you back and maybe once he starts to notice you more, he will start to like you. Sometimes boys are distracted but when you get their attention, they might realize how nice you are. Remember, if he doesn’t seem to notice you, don’t worry there are plenty of other guys out there that will appreciate you. Don’t hold onto the idea of dating someone too firmly because it will only make you unhappy if you sit around wishing he likes you back.
Exchange numbers so you can get to know each other. You can text each other and talk on the phone but let him reach out to you sometimes too so you know that he likes you. If you’re the one always reaching out to him, he might not like you back. Also don’t call or text him late at night because you want to be respectful when he’s sleeping. If he’s not responding to you, he may not be interested so don’t keep calling. Also try to keep the conversations positive and don’t complain about things. Ask him how he is doing and encourage him. Maybe find some way you can help him with something but never gossip.
Always Speak Kindly About Others
It’s really important that you keep your words about others positive when you speak to your friends and to your crush. If people know that you are a gossiper it makes you look bad and can ruin your reputation.
Try To Be Happy and Fun
The more positive you can be, the more guys will want to be around you. If you can always have a smile and always have something nice to say about someone else, people will really enjoy your company. We can always choose to have a great day and help others keep smiling by being nice to them. Guys will notice how nice you are and you’re more likely to find a nice guy if you act like this.
Be Nice To Everyone and Don’t Just Think About Yourself
Thinking of other people helps others know that you are going to look out for them and helps them trust that you’re really a good person. Try to get involved with community service or volunteer and people will respect you. When you see someone struggling with their homework, don’t make fun of them, see if you can help them. Don’t be a know it all but just offer your kindness whenever you can. It’s just human nature that guys will like nice people and the more we show that we are a good person through our actions, the better our chances of attracting a high quality guy are.
Participate In Class
If you focus on your schoolwork and get good grades, a nice guy will like that you are smart. Girls that don’t pay attention in class and don’t care about their schoolwork aren’t really that impressive to guys. Remember if a guy only likes you because he thinks your pretty, the relationship will only be superficial but if he likes you because of who you are, it’s more likely to be a great bond.
Always Do Your Best
When we always put our best foot forward whether it’s in sports, art or math class, we show that we really care about doing our best. Putting in effort, even if we aren’t that good at things is a great quality to have. Don’t worry about what other people think of you, just know that you’re doing your best. A nice guy will notice if you go above and beyond in your school projects or work hard to be the best athlete so don’t be afraid to shine!
See If He Likes You Back
If you’re getting the feeling that he likes you, you’ll probably know. If he flirts with all the girls, don’t be fooled and think that he likes you. If he is different around you than around the other girls and goes out of his way to talk to you, chances are he likes you. Give him an opportunity to tell you by talking to him after school or going to a sports game together. You don’t ever have to force yourself to tell him you like it, just let it happen naturally and don’t worry about it. You’re in no rush!
Make Sure He Treats You Respectfully
If he says he’s going to call you but always forgets, that’s not very respectful. If he makes fun of you or is rude to you, don’t waste your time trying to get him to like you. Wait until there is a nice guy who you like and work on getting to know him. The boys that like to break the rules and show off usually don’t know how to treat girls well at all and they are immature and just want attention.
Just be confident in yourself and know that the right guy will come along. Don’t try to force anything and keep up with your friends because they will usually last longer than a boyfriend does anyway!
