We’ve all been there: you meet the guy of your dreams, he asks for your number and you add him on Facebook. But then, he doesn’t remember who you are. Or worse—he does remember, but seems less than interested in getting to know you better. It happens to all of us at one point or another! There is no perfect recipe for making a guy notice you and remember your name so that he can ask for your phone number (and maybe ask again later). However, there are some things that seem to help—so here they are!
Don’t try to be someone you aren’t.
At the end of the day, if you’re trying to be someone else, he’s going to see right through it. If you’re trying to be someone who isn’t your true self, that’s going to be obvious as well. You should definitely work on improving yourself and become a better person overall—but don’t try to turn into his ideal woman.
Be confident and comfortable with yourself.
The last thing you want to do is make him forget about you by trying too hard. If he sees that you’re insecure and nervous around him, it’ll be a turn-off.
Instead, show him that you feel confident in yourself by having an air of ease about yourself when talking with him. Try not to get flustered or nervous when talking to him—it may seem like something small, but it will make all the difference if he can see that you’re comfortable in your own skin.
Be humorous! Don’t be afraid to make a fool of yourself in front of him—you’ll just end up having a great story to tell your friends later on, if he turns out to be the love of your life and not just another guy who will forget about you after one more night together. And don’t forget: sometimes it’s fun to be silly and goofy even when there’s no one around (even if it’s just in front of the mirror).
If possible, let him know that you’re interested in him by making jokes or teasing him gently. It’ll put him at ease around you and help build up his trust in what may become an otherwise awkward situation down the road when things start getting serious between the two of you
Show an interest in him and his life.
Showing an interest in him and his life will make him feel special. Ask questions about his interests, express interest in them and ask him to tell you more about his friends. This is a great way to keep the conversation going when it seems like there’s nothing left to say!
Ask questions and let him do most of the talking.
With this one, you’re going to want to be careful about what you ask and how you ask it.
For example, if he tells you that he loves hiking and mountain climbing, don’t immediately follow up with “so what’s your favorite mountain?” You can still ask questions about his interests but try to do so in a way that shows interest in him rather than just what he likes doing. Ask him more personal questions like “What was it like when your dog died?” or “How did it feel when your family moved away?” These kinds of questions will help him get comfortable talking with you, which will make him more likely to remember meeting someone like yourself later on down the road (or even before then).
Dress in a way that highlights your best features.
Use clothing to draw attention to your best features.
Dressing in a way that highlights your best features will make you more memorable, and also more attractive. This is because you’ll be presenting yourself as a person who is comfortable with themselves, as well as confident and self-assured. You can do this by choosing clothes that fit well and flatter the body type you have, but also by wearing colors or patterns that complement your complexion and hair color (if applicable).
When dressing for an occasion or event where there’s likely to be other people present, think about what everyone else will be wearing so that you don’t stand out too much (unless of course this is the effect you’re going for!). If all else fails, keep it simple: avoid extremes such as baggy clothing or bare skin; remember the basics like color coordination; try not overdo any one item of clothing—too much jewelry or makeup can look tacky rather than elegant.
You want to make him remember you, so don’t be afraid to show your true self. Be confident enough to say what you think and feel, and let him know that you’re interested in his life too. By being yourself, being funny and showing an interest in him (and his life), it will be easy for him to fall in love with who you really are!
