Tell a guy you like him by asking him out to do an activity with you that isn’t intimidating.
This approach keeps you from looking awkward.
Furthermore, you get to ask him out while conveying the message that you are attracted to him in a romantic sense all at the same time.
He should get the point when you do this, as long as you are clear about what you are doing.
When you act like this is something that is more on the friendship level and you intend to have other people there, he won’t get the message.
Giving the impression that it’s just another hangout at a familiar place that many people in both of your social circles tend to go to, doesn’t send the right message to him.
You should ask him out with the pure intention to show that this is for the hope of romance and not friendship.
This means that your invite should be intended for the both of you only.
It should also be at a place that isn’t a popular hangout for the friends in both of your social circles.
This conveys the message to him that this is different.
This is not just a friendship hang out but something more.
You shouldn’t elaborately plan out when you intend to tell a guy you like him beforehand.
Doing so entices you to rehearse what you are going to say and this makes you more nervous.
You are constantly second-guessing the use of certain words or phrases.
By the time you actually get to telling this guy that you like him, you mess it up and sound forced.
He is put off by this and doesn’t know how to react.
You need to be as natural as possible when you tell him.
A good way to be natural is to not plan this out beforehand.
Have a normal conversation with him, and when it feels right, let him know.
Do this when you have discovered that you have something in common with him.
Let him know that you like the fact that you share this in common and think he is a fun and interesting guy.
You would love to talk some more over the phone.
Sound natural when you say this.
The compliment to his character has let him in on the possibility that you like him.
The invitation for further conversation over the phone has let him know that this is romantic interest and not platonic.
He is more inclined to give you the accurate response when he is certain of your intentions.
Use your body language.
When you consistently use touch, eye contact, and smiling, he gets the picture.
This is what guys are looking for.
They want to get cues through her body language to indicate she is a girl that likes them.
Put in the effort to be closer to him as you speak.
You can even lean into him from time to time.
Touch his arm, leg or shoulder as you speak or interact.
Look into his eyes and maintain the eye contact for a few precious seconds before taking it away.
Smile at him often and give him a slight nod with your head cocked to the side.
You are already telling the guy that you like him without having said a word about it.
For this to work, you must be consistent.
Sometimes, a guy needs a few exposures to this behavior to get the idea.
