10 Subtle (But Solid) Ways To Hit On A Guy

Do you know that feeling when you’re dying to show how much you like him, but you’re afraid of appearing too phony or too flirty?

I know it, too. While some women have an innate flirting predisposition, others are the total opposite.

So, when you talk to a guy you like, you desperately try to hide all the clues of your affection toward him by acting a little bit reserved even though you know that this way he’ll never notice that you’re interested.

It’s like an endless circle of suppressing your emotions and hoping that he will somehow magically become aware of your sympathies.

But, the good news is that there are some subtle (but solid) ways to hit on a guy without looking desperate or overly flirty!

So, the next time you find yourself in the same situation, consider using the charms of the following ways to hit on a guy like a pro!



1. Play with your hair

Guys love seeing you play with your hair, and it is one of the most powerful subtle ways of flirting.

When they see you subconsciously playing with your hair and looking them in the eye, they become mesmerized within seconds because they immediately start imagining how it would feel to touch your hair and play with it, too (and do other things as well).

2. Tease him

Oh, teasing. Many girls think that teasing is a guys’ sports, and girls shouldn’t be doing the same thing because it’s not feminine.

The truth is, teasing is a universal way of indirectly showing that you’re interested, and guys love to be teased by girls, too.

You can tease him about his choice of beer or tease him for being clumsy. Just remember to do it in a playful way so that he doesn’t get offended.


3. Laugh

Another easy, subtle way to hit on a guy is by simply laughing at his jokes, being positive, and enjoying spending time with him.

If you’re feeling confident, you can also spice it up with a little bit of humor, and he will not be able to take his eyes off of you.

He will enjoy seeing you smile, and he will enjoy your company more than anything else.


4. Ask him for directions

Remember all those movies where a damsel in distress stands next to her broken car or asks for directions?

Well, if you find yourself in the middle of the street and you want to approach him, asking him for directions is a perfect way of starting a conversation and letting him know that you’re interested.

5. Look back at him and lock eyes

When it comes to showing our affection, our eyes are the most powerful things we have in our possession.

If you want to let a guy know that you like him without saying a word, just look him deeply in the eye for a few seconds, and he will get smitten instantly.

Your eyes will tell him what your words can’t, and he will not be able to stay indifferent on that one.


6. Touch him

Remember when a guy touched you lightly on your back while showing you a way out or touched your shoulders or knees while talking to you?

It was extremely powerful, right? While they are doing it subconsciously, you can do it intentionally, and let him know that you’re interested.

You can use the power of subtle touch to touch his hands, back, knees, arms, and anything else that comes to your mind as long as it is subtle.

His body will detect your affection, and he will be inclined to show his admiration to you as well.

7. Compliment him

Even though there are thousands of articles on the topic regarding complimenting girls, this doesn’t mean that guys don’t like to receive compliments as well.

As a matter of fact, the biggest shortcut to a guy’s heart is by showing him admiration because guys like to be noticed and complimented on their achievements.

You can compliment his choice of outfit, his strength when he lifts something heavy or his skill when he resolves something difficult.

You can compliment his hair and…you name it! When you do this, he knows that you notice him, and he will feel special.


8. Bite your lower lip

There’s nothing sexier to guys than seeing a woman biting her lower lip while she’s being indecisive about something or at the moment of coming to conclusions.

If it comes natural to you, you’re a lucky lady, and you shouldn’t worry about him not noticing how hot you are.

If you want to be a little bit more direct, bite your lower lip while locking eyes with him, and this will be enough to fire his imagination.

9. Talk to him about sports

Talking about sports is mainly a guy’s thing, right?

But, if you’re a girl and you’re capable of talking about sports, this will be your biggest advantage when it comes to guys.

For example, if you’re sitting in a bar at a time when there’s some sport on TV, you can simply ask him something about it, and the conversation will just go with the flow.


10. Get your full flirt on

Whichever of the above ways you decide to choose, always remember to get your full flirt on.

Now, what does this mean? It means harmonizing your body language, gestures,  and expressions with your actions.

So, if you choose to subtly touch him, remember to spice it up by looking deeply into his eyes, batting your eyelashes, and adding some mystery to your smile.

If you do all of this, he will definitely become mesmerized by you, and he will think of ways to reciprocate his affection for you, too.
