While men and women are both equally capable of making themselves appear desirable to the opposite or the same gender, there are certain things; heterosexual women like to try out to grab a guy’s attention. As stereotypical as they seem, trust me, these methods often do their magic whether it’s about a woman getting the man she likes or a woman getting what she wants in a relationship. Let’s be honest guys; you do get lured into their traps, don’t you? So here’s an insight into what runs in a woman’s mind when she’s trying to get your attention. So, sit down. Take notes and get comfy. It might help you score that girl you like or strengthen your relationship with your girl.

Hard to Get

Yes, I know we’ve all heard of this term many times, it’s annoying now, honestly. But trust me, girls with this trick up their sleeve, have almost always been successful in getting what they want. And why wouldn’t they? It increases their desirability level, and not just that, it makes you feel more attracted to them. When girls know you like them and well, they like you back, here’s how they’ll show you they’re onto you. They’ll reply late to your texts or just give you the one-word treatment. They’ll ignore your ‘hi’ and act like they never heard you. Watch out boys; they might even casually forget your name! While eye rolls and constant displays of annoyance might signify they’re playing ‘hard to get,’ be sure that they do reciprocate those feelings you might have for them, because if it’s unrequited, well, good luck.


While a girls only squad doesn’t alert you that much, it actually should. When she starts hanging out with her girlfriends a bit too much and has innumerable ‘girls day outs, she might be doing this to get your attention. It is for those men already in relationships, by the way. If your girlfriend is going out with her squad too much and ignoring you all the same, well, you need to gear up, man, because this is not how it’s going to work. Show her how much she means to you. Think of all the romantic things that might sauce up your relationship. Too many days at the spa and an excess of ‘girl-time’ aren’t a good sign!

The ex-talk

Although most girls don’t employ this method, if they do it’s pretty scary, okay! The casual conversation might turn into talks of movie nights with her ex(es) or all the romantic dates she had at fancy restaurants. For guys in relationships, your girl’s telling you you’re doing something wrong. And trust me, this is the nicest way to say it. Don’t get too pissed about it though; it wouldn’t work out very well, that way. Just laugh along and show her how you’re so much better than her ex(es). For guys trying to score a girl, well, this might be a way of your crush trying to tell you all that she expects of you. So be sure to be equipped with a note pad and a pen when she starts talking about her ex(es).

The independence card

Most guys like their partners to be dependent on them, because hey, patriarchy so why not! But if your girl is going out of her way, doing things she usually doesn’t do on her own, well, this could either be a sign that you need to give her more time and attention, or she might just be exploring herself and the world. So, this makes it one of the trickiest things to decipher. Is your girl just trying something new, is she trying to be more self-sufficient or does she need more of your time? Only smart guys will get this, honestly.

Men, Men, MEN!

Some girls like to play the jealousy card. They’ll hang out with their straight guy friends, post selfies and update their social networking sites. They’ll post cheeky selfies with their guy friends just to let you know that boy; you aren’t that special. It is a warning for you guys, so buckle up!

The Pot at the end of the rainbow

Some girls like to use their queer guy friends to make guys jealous. It not only pisses guys off it also imposes the idea that they’re the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. They’re surrounded by glamorous friends, and they’re a real catch. So get groomed, man. She’s a princess.


Some girls (although not all) might even go as far to use guys as bait. They’ll go out with guys, acting all shady, posting stories on their snap chats, imposing the idea that they’re on a date. It’s not necessarily to make you jealous though, she might be dating that guy, so before you start getting more interested in her, get your facts straight.

The glam-cam

Some girls will post gorgeous pictures on their social media sites. They’ll be all caked up, eyebrows done, looking like Disney princesses. Although she might just be expressing her individuality via her posts, she might also be looking for her level on the desire-meter. She’ll be checking who likes and comments. Pretty sure, her posts will attract some guys. But act cool, don’t get too into her lane, it might piss her off. If you’re already with her, comment heart emojis and keep her pampered up. Make her feel beautiful, man.

The Glam card

Some girls will wear gorgeous outfits, stilettos and look glamorous when they’re around you. Get it, man, if she drops subtle hints along with this, I’m sure you and I are on the same page.

Fitness 101

Some girls will start hitting the gym because they feel like it would get your attention. Again, this is a difficult one, because then again, she could be doing so because she started caring about her fitness. So get your facts straight. But for guys, who’re already in relationships this could be a major warning. She might not feel comfortable in her skin. So sit her down and talk to her. Tell her how very important she is to you and how she’s perfect just the way she is!

I hope these tips help you guys, out there. Make sure you took them all down. It’s imperative you know all the tricks up a girl’s sleeve before you approach her, or if you’re already with her, consider these eight pointers as warnings. You need to buckle up!

Sherlock-esque ‘subtle’ hints

If you ever found yourself that thick headed, you will once you find out the meaning of subtlety to womenfolk. Let’s face it; guys pretty much crave for women to send a hint towards them every once in awhile (read all the time), to keep them on the fish hook if they’re still interested. But women being the emotionally miserly creatures that they decide to send a double meaning, torturous hints that are. If taken to mean as innocent flirtations, you’ll overshoot and end up looking like a fool. If you brush it off as meaning something else, you’ll be the narcissistic jackass to her for the rest of your life. It is certainly the great game. Hence, if she keeps saying that there is a great new movie, put two and two together and realize she wants to see it with you. Tough life!

Human manifestation of bumping carts

So you know this girl who loses all motor functions when she close to you and keeps incessantly bumping into you. Despite the gravest of internal processes in your Byzantine labyrinth of thoughts, doubts, and curiosity, you can not remotely muster how she comes to crash into you every time you both are strangely close. Well, the answer lies pretty much in bumping implications. She wants to talk to you, bub. So strike up a conversation with her, or better yet bump back into her and pass a smile. Seldom does a guy get lucky enough for a girl to make the first significant move? Word to the wise though, that make sure you’re certain into you first. Nothing is more embarrassing than being an accidental creep or being beaten up by her real guy. Boo!

Shambles from nervousness

Ever notice when a girl changes around you? A tomboy starts wearing red lipstick and doing her hair, or any other kind of girl biting her lips and playing with her hair? Congratulations, you have now accessed into her most pliable biological weakness; the fact that she is so into you that even her body can’t help but drop signs that she is nervous enough to drop her facade subconsciously. Take the hint, guys and get what’s bound to be yours. After all, her body has already done the job to make you one lucky man.

Cafe di more

C’est la vie, guys. If there’s a baker in your realm, it is true love. It is a fallacy that girls love baking. Perhaps a bastardization of sorts. But the truth is that girls love baking, for that special someone. It takes a monumental effort and elephantine interest of a guy to ever bake for them. So quite naturally, you should acknowledge the fact and come terms with the reality that she is definitely into you if she bakes for you on the regular. Munch on those cinnamon rolls with her in your arms the next time she comes over with that batch. Win-win-win, honestly.

Dr. Takemeout

Ever talk to this one girl and feel like you’re suddenly opening up to her about your whole life like she is your therapist? It turns out that if she is digging up all she can about your life, her excavation only reveals her deep interest in you. So tell her more and her her a lot back. Nothing is cuter than 12-hour sesh’s when you do nothing more than talk about your entire life with each other and at the end simply smile as you bask in the realization that having known all about them, you want nothing more than to find out how you both spend the rest of your life together. Beautiful.
