Since the goal of Fantasy Dating is to meet people, date and hopefully win the ultimate prize of love, it’s very important know how to get the attention of someone you’re interested in.
There’s a delicate balance between letting someone know you’ve noticed them and coming on too strong and scaring the heck out of him or her. So here are some subtle ways to drop a hint.
1: Get caught looking.
Now, this doesn’t mean you should get super creepy and stare someone down. The idea is to look their way a few times. Once you get caught looking, smile and turn back to whatever you were doing. Hopefully, they’ll get the hint.
Your smile is your best curve. Show it off. Smiling not only lets the person you’ve noticed them, it lets them know you’re friendly and have a generally good attitude. Remember, attitude is everything. Nobody wants to date a grump.
3: Be approachable.
This is HUGE. No matter how hard you use your version of a Jedi Mind Trick to will someone to approach you, if you’re staring at your phone, no one will come near you. Put your phone away. Uncross your arms. Keep your head up. Project confidence and smile.
4: Say, Hi.
For all of you who are firm believers that a man should approach you first, that’s fine. We’re not suggesting you walk up to him and propose on the spot. We’re merely suggesting you smile and say, “Hi.” A simple, “Hi,” can go a long way to letting someone know you might like to say more.
5:Give Someone a Compliment.
Complimenting someone is a kind way to break the ice. Find something you truly like about that person and tell them. Whether it’s, “I love your shirt,” or “That’s a great watch. Where did you get it?” you will immediately disarm the person you’re attempting to charm. And they’ll realize you may be giving them more than a compliment.
