  1. If you shake his hand, wrap your other hand around his and hold it there just a little bit longer than you usually would.

  2. Order two drinks, and approach a cute guy standing alone. Tell him the bartender accidentally gave you two drinks. Does he want it? Yes he does.

  3. At a restaurant, walk over to his table and ask if you can borrow his salt/pepper/Tabasco/whatever. Even if you already have it on your table. Especially if you already have it on your table.

  4. At a bar with games, ask him to be your partner for Foozeball/ping pong/pool whatever.

  5. Compliment him! “What sports do you like? You look athletic.”

  6. Whisssperrrrr. Lean in close.

  7. Ask him to reach something for you on a high shelf at the store.

  8. Keep something creative in your purse, like gummy bears, and ask him if he wants some. It’s way more memorable than gum.

  9. This might pain you to blurt out if you’re shy, but just try it: Bump into him on purpose and say “Oh, oops! I become a total klutz around cute guys.”

  10. You might be Ms. Planny-pants, but guys like more spontaneity. Text a guy you’re digging last minute and ask if he wants to get an Wendy’s Frosty or go see a movie.

  11. If the bar is really crowded, slip him some cash and ask him to get a drink for you.

  12. Tease him and smile. Like, when he introduces himself and tells you his name, say “What?” so he has to lean in to repeat himself. Then say, “What?” again, with a smile.

  13. If a guy is standing by a juke box, definitely go up with money and ask him what you should play.

  14. Instead of asking him what time it is, hold his wrist and look at his watch.

  15. Ask a guy about his tattoo. TOUCH THE TATTOO.

  16. Make a bet with him.

  17. Ask the guy on the treadmill, “how fast were you running? Woah!”

  18. Say his name.

  19. Touch his knee or arm when you’re talking to him.

  20. Tell him he smells good. “What’s that cologne?”

  21. Eye contact + Smile. Walk away.

  22. If you’re waiting in line with a hot guy, ask him if he thinks it’s worth the wait.
