How To Show A Guy You Like Him, According To Guys Themselves

Of all the words I would use to describe myself, "smooth" is definitely not one of them. In my general life, I'm just not a smooth person. I'm the friend who blurts out the secret because she didn't realize it was a secret or the one who will be talking smack when the person I'm talking about is standing directly behind me. And things only get worse when I'm trying to show a guy I like him. Seriously, the art of learning how to show a guy you like him is one that I have yet to master.

Luckily, I wound up in a relationship with a guy who finds my awkward inability to make literally any of the first moves endearing. But the vast majority of my dating career has been a long series of awkward and unsuccessful attempts on my part to play it cool and convince the guy I like that I don't actually like him. Makes sense, right?

Yeah, so I'm probably not the person you should go to for tips on how to show a guy you like him. But these dudes might actually have some better advice for you. In a recent Reddit thread, they shared the smoothest things girls did or said when putting moves on them. READ ALONG AND TAKE NOTES, LADIES.
