10 Ways to Show Interest in a Man Without Being Too Forward


When you’d like to find a good man to date, it’s important to know the best ways to show interest when an opportunity arises. A man is more likely to put some effort into your relationship when he feels he has a chance with you.  Yet, it is possible that you can come on too strong, making you seem too forward. He might feel like you’re too into him, and back off. Or he could pursue you for casual sex, thinking you’re willing. How can you look interested but not too interested? Here are some good ways:

1- Make eye contact. This is one of the most subtle ways to show interest.  It is one of the easiest things to try if you’re shy.If you simply glance his way for a few seconds, you might even catch his eye. If it’s a man you know or are dating, making eye contact shows you’re connected.

2- Smile. When you’re smiling at him, you are letting him know that you are enjoying yourself. Whether you’re smiling at him when in conversation or smiling while walking down the street, you’re showing your genuine warmth which can be very attractive to a man.

3- Be attentive. You want to be present with him, so that you are listeningto what he’s saying and can respond with appropriate questions and comments.  When you care about what he’s saying, you’re telling him that he matters. He’s likely to feel important.

4- Touch him. If you’re shy, it might be harder to show interest by touching, so do what’s comfortable for you. You can try to lightly touch his arm if you think he’d be OK with it. Notice whether he’s comfortable with your touch by seeing how he reacts. Does he seem to like it or does he pull away?

5- Laugh at his jokes. When you laugh at his jokes, he’ll know that you’re enjoying the conversation and you get along well.

6- Don’t get personal. Save the personal details for later. When you’re just getting to know a man, it’s best to keep things light. Don’t tell all the details of why your last relationship didn’t work out. You might think it will bring you closer, but it might feel like too much information for him.

7- Make good conversation. When you’re having conversations with a man,he can get to know you. He knows that if you weren’t interested, you’d probably cut off the conversation.

8- Be coy. When you’re a little flirty but also shy or standoffish, he has the chance to pull you out of your shell. He might feel very special when you finally tell him more about you.

9- Compliments. When he does nice things for you, be sure to appreciate him for it. You want him to know that you like what he’s doing so he’ll keep doing it. If he does or says something thoughtful, say, “That’s sweet.”

10- Be yourself. Don’t change who you are to be with a man. Ultimately, you’re looking for a man who likes you and wants to be with you. If this is difficult for you, you may want to learn more about how to be your own Brand of Sexy.
