Do you have dreams of snuggling up to that special someone in front of a fireplace with romantic Christmas music playing in the background? Well, let’s move from dreams to reality! While we make no promises, below we give a few of our tips to get yourself a boyfriend over Christmas break and beyond.
Lose the Attitude
The number one trait a girl can have when trying to get a guy to like her is availability. Now, this doesn’t mean being easy or dating every guy in the school. It just means that she must be open to interaction and friendly.
If you have a nose in the air attitude about guys, then it probably has a lot to do with your being single. If you want a boyfriend over Christmas break or ever, then be more open and remember opposites attract. So…
Look Outside Your Group
If you are in a particular clique, you may be single because your attitude is too limiting. Maybe there’s a nice, fun guy who hangs with people you think are beneath you. While you don’t want to compromise your moral standards (like dating an abuser or a druggie), don’t be so quick to judge just based on interests or dress.
If a guy is cool and shares your values, then don’t thumb your nose at him. You may meet a great guy who can provide you lots of meaningful and romantic moments. This is especially true if you’re single. Quit being such a lonely snob! Branch out and meet different types of guys.
Improve Your Looks
I know we should love ourselves for who we are. I totally agree. But, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t look and act our best at all times. Like it or not, looks do matter. So, try to doll yourself up a little more. Improve your makeup scheme. Get a better haircut. Get fitter and eat healthier.
I don’t believe girls should ever improve to land guys. However, you should want to improve yourself for you. And, the side benefit is that guys will pay more attention to you. If you’re a tomboy, you’ll find that even acting a little more “girly” will help you.
Take the Lead
If you really like a guy, then ask him out. While this should be his job, not all guys, especially as teens, have the confidence to approach girls. Make it a no pressure event and he’ll be more likely to do it. Ask him for coffee or to go to a basketball game. It’s 2012. Don’t be shy about reversing the traditional roles.
So, I wish you the best in getting a boyfriend. Even if you don’t get one by Christmas, this advice should at least get you some company and may lead to romance down the line.
