If you aren’t sure how to expand on those items, the following list may help.

•Be a genuinely good listener. A guy likes to know that you care about what’s inside his head.

•Converse intelligently. Guys respect intelligence.

•Ask his opinion on something intelligent other than religion or politics.

•Find a common interest with him, or two or three.

•With a flirtatious smile, open a door for him.

•Be present, be mannerly; focus on him whether you’re listening or talking.

•Brush up on the latest gadgets for guys and ask him if he’s heard of one or two of them.

•You may not be Julia Child, but bake him something, even if it comes from a mix.

•Catch his eye from across the room and with a lift of your eyebrows, let him know that you would like to get to know him.

•Anticipate a need. If his drink is low, offer to refill it. If he’s carrying a lot of stuff, hold the door for him. If he seems to have a kink in his shoulders, massage it.

•Let him be a gentleman. If he opens your door, smile and politely say thank you.

•Be feminine in your appearance and your demeanor. You don’t have to be helpless or desperate.

•Dress modestly. Not only will this make you stand out, it will pique his interest.

•If you’re sitting, cross your legs the next time he looks at you and let your shoe dangle from your toes.

•Smile, smile, smile; act like you’re having a good time. Happiness is a very attractive quality.

•Put your hand on his arm during the conversation.

•Compliment him and hold his gaze a second or two longer than you normally would.

•Twirl your hair around your finger, especially if you have long hair.

•Have a sense of humor and tease him a little, but be nice about it.

Above all, realize that he is a human being and has feelings. Be respectful of him and yourself and have fun, no matter the outcome!
