How to Get a Guy to Like You in Middle School

by Liza Hollis

Getting a guy to like you in middle school can be a daunting task. Keeping a positive outlook and being proud of who you are is a great way to build up the self-confidence you will need to get a guy to like you.

Keep an optimistic outlook. If you try to find the joy in life and enjoy yourself, your positivity will make you all the more attractive to the opposite sex.

Get to know the boy you like. If he is in a class of yours, talk to him between classes. You can try talking to him about the class to open up conversation because it is something you already have in common. This can lead to more conversations as you two get to know each other.

Invite the guy you like to hang out with you and your friends. This way he will get to know you and how great you are.

Be confident in who you are. This does not mean that if you are shy you have to be the most outgoing person in the world, but if you exhibit a level of self-confidence he will get to want to know you and what you have to offer.

Find things that you two have in common. This will give you things to talk about and help you feel comfortable around each other.

Do not feel you have to look or act a certain way to get the boy to like you. Focus on keeping yourself likable by grooming yourself well and taking good care of yourself to look more attractive, but do not forget how important it is to have a beautiful inner self as well.
