“If you want something you never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done.” An old saying by Thomas Jefferson is the approach you want to have when it comes to getting the guy you want – especially in 10 days.
Although today’s society is all about using dating apps to meet people, it would be nice to meet someone the old-fashioned way, right?
Here are five psychologically proven ways to get your crush to like you in 10 days.
KEEP HIM CLOSE BY.
According to Dr. Joe Fanelli, a human sexuality and love professor at the University of Syracuse, “If you are attracted to something, the more often you see it, the more attracted you will become.” So walk by that crush of yours. Twice. Or even a third time. Eventually, introduce yourself.
MAINTAIN EYE CONTACT.
Author and life enthusiast Mark Manson created an e-book called The Levels of Eye Contact in Attraction in 2011.
According to Manson, gazing into someone’s eyes can create intimacy between two people. “Hold the gaze for 2-3 seconds without breaking it.
If undesired, this level is known as the infamous “creep stare”, so make sure both parties want it,” writes Manson. Hopefully your crush has piercing eyes like Zac Efron or Brad Pitt, Megan Fox or Amanda Seyfried.
This will make gazing into them a more worthwhile experience.
LAUGH AT ALL JOKES.
Eric Bressler, a grad student at McMaster University studying ‘The role of humour in personal attraction’, believes men are attracted to a woman who laughs at their jokes.
His 2005 study of 150 male students confirmed that laughing at your crush’s jokes will grab their attention. The next time they try to be funny, give the joke credit with a laugh.
SMILE… A LOT.
Smiling at your crush can launch the ‘mirror neuron effect’. According to Neuroscientist Marco Iacoboni, when it comes to smiling the neurons in your brain react to another person’s actions.
Try showing off those pearly whites when you talk to your crush. That kind smile of yours will get noticed.
FIND A COMMON INTEREST.
Opposites attract, well, maybe not that much. According to Dr. Amy Muise, a relationship and attraction assistant professor at York University, similarities between two people can reduce any conflicts of interest.
So, try and see if you and your crush have common interests. The one for you will appreciate it.
There’s no rule or limit of what you should do to get your crush to like you. You could easily just say it, but, that can be a little too scary.
But remember, as Bill Cosby once said, “Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it.”
