No two men are the same when it comes to their own personal preferences, but when it comes to men in general, there are a few things that the majority of them prefer. You may already be doing many of these tricks without even knowing it, but if you’re clueless about the various ways to get a guy to go crazy over you, you’ve come to the right place.
Most women want a guy who will go absolutely gaga over them, and it takes more than some skills in the bedroom and a pretty face to really get him hooked on you. If you’ve ever wondered why some girls have guys chasing them around like puppy dogs, it’s probably because they are using a variety of these tips to drive men up the wall (in a good way, of course).
Now it’s time for you to be on the receiving end of a guy tripping all over himself just to be in your presence. Keep reading to see the 15 things you can do that will secretly drive him wild.
15 Wearing Glasses
Growing up, there was absolutely nothing sexy about wearing glasses. Any girl with less than perfect eyesight was usually called “four eyes” and other horrible names that crushed her self-esteem. But thankfully, as you get older, glasses are the one of the many things that drive men wild.
According to a study by Michael Brown, PhD, since the eyes are the first thing people notice, it’s best to play up this feature. Wearing some eyeliner and a smoky eye isn’t going to get the job done, though. A pair of quirky or nerdy glasses can actually make men even more attracted to you because glasses are sign of “intelligence, honesty and dependability” - all of which are favorable characteristics when it comes to choosing a partner.
Quirky glasses with large frames are the most popular, and the nerdier the better. Some men really dig the hipster look, so a pair of full-rim glasses will really get his attention. If you’re rocking 20/20 vision, don’t worry, you’re not out of luck. You can purchase a pair of non-prescription glass, and throw them on every now and then to spice things up and really drive him wild.
In order to drive a guy wild you need to stimulate his sense of smell. Just like you may prefer a guy who smells of the heavenly scent of cologne, there are certain scents out there that really drive men crazy.
You want to have him thinking about you long after the two of you have departed, so pick a perfume that is less popular to make sure it’s not a scent that he’ll encounter on a daily basis. Spray the perfume lightly on the pulse points of your body, such as your wrists, behind your ears, at the bottom of your throat, inside your elbows, and behind your knees. The warmth of your body heat will activate these pulse points, emitting the glorious scent straight into his nostrils. Checkmate!
When it comes to picking a perfume, men love feminine scents. Anything with vanilla and sandalwood will definitely drive him insane.
13 Being Passionate
What’s life without passion? It would be pretty boring if you ask me. Men are addicted to women who are passionate about anything. It doesn’t even have to be something “cool” or exciting. As long as it floats your boat and gets you pumped up for no reason at all, a man will dig the enthusiasm you have for your interest.
A passion doesn’t have to be a hobby or something that you physically do during your downtime. It can be the love you have for opera music, it can be your interest in classic movies or it can be your love for a certain music band or artist.
So what happens if you don’t have a passion? Well, it’s time to pick one, girlfriend. Showing that you have something in your life that really fascinates you will make you that much more intriguing. Talk about it whenever it crosses your mind, use hand movements and put a smile on your face as you blab on and on about it. Widen your eyes and really get into it. Trust me, it will turn him on and drive him wild!
Your mom, your grandma, your aunts and your best friend have probably already told you the cliché saying, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” This is absolutely true, but when it comes to hooking a man with your cooking, you have to do things the right way if you really want to make him go crazy for you.
The number one rule when it comes to cooking for a guy is: hold off for as long as possible. There’s no reason why you should be breaking out with your mom’s casserole recipe and setting your table with your fine china after knowing a guy for a few weeks. As a matter of fact, cooking for him after a few months is also a big no-no. If you really want to drive him wild, wait more than a few months, or almost a year, and then bust out with your go-to recipe that will knock his socks off.
The thing is, he needs to know that you don’t cook for everyone. Your cooking is reserved for someone special and only for special occasions. After waiting six months to taste your Italian meatballs, he’ll think you’re the best cook in the world (even if they taste horribly, he won’t even care at that point). It’s the thought that counts, and he’ll instantly have stronger feelings for you that he won’t be able to control.
Once you hook him with that first meal that he waited forever to enjoy, he’ll be eating out of the palm of your hand.
11 Going Natural
I know you can’t wait to rock that new highlighter and contour makeup routine you stumbled across on YouTube, but other women may be the only ones who find that heavy makeup look attractive.
When it comes to getting all dolled up, men love it when you look your best, of course. But most of them prefer to see a woman who has a more natural look. When shown pictures of their favorite celebrities with and without makeup, more men preferred the look of their favorite celeb makeup-free. So you can go easy on the foundation, blush and concealer because chances are, your guy wishes you would skip out on the five layers of makeup you put on every time the two of you go out.
When a woman shows up to a guy’s house with a bare face, it instantly takes a load of pressure off of his shoulders. Without wearing makeup, you’re subconsciously telling him that you’re comfortable around him. He gets to admire your natural beauty, and wearing no makeup allows you to get ready in less than fifteen minutes. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved, right?
Ditch the dumb and clueless act because it’s not going to do much when it comes to attracting a quality man. If you want to drive a guy wild, you have to flex your intellectual muscles. Now, you don’t have to turn into a walking encyclopedia, but knowing some basic knowledge about local and world news can really make a guy look at you in a different light.
Find a topic that interests you and start to study it and brush up on the facts. The next time you and the guy you admire are together, bust out with those facts and watch his eyes light up. He’ll sit there in amazement, wondering how he got so lucky to be in the presence of such a smart and beautiful girl like you!
Most guys can’t resist a woman who is smart. It keeps them on their toes, and it makes them want to step their game up when it comes to staying on top of important topics.
9 Get Witty
If you browse online dating profiles, you will notice that most women crave a man who can make them laugh. Well, guess what? Men what a woman who can make them laugh, too. But we’re not talking about knock knock jokes here. We’re talking about witty and sarcastic humor to keep him on his toes and keep him guessing.
If the guy you’re interested in is quite clever, then you’re going to need to step it up if you want to go toe-to-toe with him. If you can banter with him and say something hilarious that leaves him gasping for air then congratulations. He will now be officially enamored with you.
If you can take his jokes and dish them back out when appropriate, you will have any guy go wild for you. Finding the humor in everyday life can bring another element to your relationship. Instead of being stuffy, uptight and uncomfortable, you and your partner will feel more at ease with each other.
8 Wearing Yoga Pants
Yoga pants are comfortable and flattering to wear even if you haven’t stepped foot in a gym in years. But they actually have another purpose: they have the ability to drive your guy absolutely wild.
Men love the look of yoga pants because they show just the right amount of curves without showing too much. This leaves a little bit of mystery in the equation which can really turn a guy on. Yoga pants cling to your body, and they are definitely a more figure-flattering option than jeans.
If you and your love interest are meeting up for a quick lunch, throw on a pair of yoga pants and watch him drool. He won’t be able to take his eyes off you! Of course men are attracted to women in a variety of clothing, but there’s just something about a pair of form-fitting yoga pants that really drive them wild.
7 Being Confident
In your past relationships, what’s the one thing that killed the romance? If you said your lack of confidence then don’t worry because you’re not alone. Low self-esteem, insecurities and jealousy are all relationship killers. What has the potential to be a long-term relationship that others envy can crash and burn in less than 30 days if you let your insecurities get the best of you.
Men are already pre-wired to avoid women who lack confidence at all costs. But in the early stages of dating, you may be able to hide your lack of confidence more easily. As things progress and heat up, the facade will crack, and it can definitely turn a man off.
So how should you go about coming across as the confident badass that drives men wild? Well, honey, you have to fake it 'til you make it. Walk around like your poop doesn’t stink, waltz into a room like you own it, know in your heart and in your mind that you chose him and you’re in control of your own love life, and also, believe that if things don’t work out, you’ll be perfectly fine no matter what. That’s all it really takes!
6 Random Selfies
Most couples love to exchange flirty and sexy pics with each other throughout the day. But most men would actually prefer the more mundane selfies from time to time. Instead of sending him a Snapchat of your butt in a pair of bikini bottoms, send him some random action shots of you running to the grocery store, picking up your favorite latte from the cute café on campus, or a picture of you at your desk typing an email. These simple pictures may not mean much to you, but they will drive a guy wild if he’s already interested in you.
As long as the picture is solely for him and hasn’t already been posted to your social media profiles, a guy will appreciate the random selfies that you send him a few times a week. It lets him know that you’re thinking about him, and seeing your face will make him smile. He will miss you, crave you and yearn to be with you again.
5 Wear Something Skimpy
When it comes to clothing, a man who’s looking for a serious relationship will prefer a woman who leaves a little something to the imagination. However, when the two of you are alone together, nothing will drive him wild more than some skimpy clothing.
You don’t have to run out and spend $300 at Victoria’s Secret in order to drive your guy crazy. All it takes is some lacy undergarments to really catch his attention. Standing in front of your man in a frilly bra and a pair of racy underwear is like giving him a present to unwrap on Christmas Day. He will be anxious, his heart will start pounding out of his chest, and thoughts of what’s underneath the packaging will inundate his mind.
The style of underwear doesn’t really matter, so whether you prefer boy shorts or something more skimpy, the guy in your life will go crazy either way.
4 Watch Sports
When it comes to dating and relationships, a guy wants to be with someone who’s a lover and a friend. He knows that you’ll never be able to replace the bond he has with his bros, but he wants you to come pretty close to being his BFF. When you can get on the level where the two of you enjoy just spending time together and doing absolutely nothing, that’s how you know you have him hooked!
If the guy you’re interested in is a sports guy, watching sporting events with him will really drive him wild. It’s like the best of both worlds: a girl who he’s attracted to who knows what a neutral zone infraction is. It really doesn’t get any better than that!
If you’re not big on sports, you can at least brush up on the stats of his favorite team. Learn the names of his favorite NBA point guard or keep up with the winning scores by checking ESPN every morning to really drive him wild. A little bit of sports knowledge goes a long way when it comes to getting a guy’s attention.
3 Get Flirty
If your text convos with the guy you admire are always short and sweet, you’re doing something wrong. If you send a message and he doesn’t even reply, then you definitely need some help if you want him to go wild for you. Whether you like it or not, texting is a huge part of dating, and the way you interact with him via text can really make or break your relationship.
Getting flirty via text message is one way to really drive a man wild. But you want to make sure you aren’t too direct and too forward. Leave a little to the imagination, and be subtle with your flirting tactics. If he asks you what you’re doing, reply with, “Thinking of you.” When he drops you off after a date, text him and tell him how much fun you had, and end the message with, “And you looked so handsome.” A little bit of flirting here and there will let him know not only are you interested in him, but it will also let him know that you’re attracted to him, too. As you continue to send flirty messages, he will start to look forward to your texts. Switch it up between flirty and casual to really keep him guessing.
2 Eye Contact
You already know how important eye contact is when you’re trying to get a guy’s attention, but keeping that eye contact going once you reeled him in will drive him even more crazy for you. The next time the two of you go out to dinner, sit across from him so you can use these eye contact techniques to drive him wild!
While he’s talking, stare deeply into his eyes and hold your gaze for no longer than 10 seconds. Anything more than 10 seconds is considered creepy status, and you may inadvertently turn him off. When you’re telling him a story, make sure you stare into his eyes, as well. When there’s a period of awkward silence, look into his eyes and flash those pearly whites. It’s guaranteed to drive him nuts!
Men equate eye contact with approval, acceptance and attraction. So look into his eyes as much as possible and watch as he slowly but surely falls in love.
1 Scare Him to Death
Okay, not entirely serious with this one (or am I?) You don’t want to put him in the morgue. You don’t need “I killed my crush” to be stuck on your conscious for the rest of your life. When I say “scare him to death,” I mean to get his adrenaline pumping in a way that triggers positive thoughts about you.
Studies have shown that an adrenaline rush is strongly linked to the physiological process that occurs when you fall in love. When you fall in love with someone, your heart may race and you get pit stains under your arms every time you see his face. If you want to illicit this same reaction in a guy, and drive him wild with thoughts of falling in love with you, you need to get his blood pumping.
Suggest the two of you go on a date to an amusement park and convince him to ride the tallest, scariest ride in the park. Don’t let him chicken out. Grab his hand and pull him into the line if you have to. As he screams his little heart out on the ride, the adrenaline rush he receives will not only be associated with his reaction to being on the rollercoaster, but he will also associate that adrenaline rush to being with you. The feel-good chemicals his brain released during the rollercoaster are the equivalent to what’s transmitted when he falls in love. As soon as you step off the ride together, don’t be surprised if he looks into your eyes and tells you his true feelings for you!
