How to Make a Guy That Used to Like You Like You Again


Once you break up with someone or they lose interest in you, it might feel like all hope for the relationship is gone. But, if there was once a spark, it could be rekindled. Maybe you really want your ex back or you want that cute guy at school who you used to talk to to ask you out again. No matter the circumstances, you can make him like you again by sparking his interest, flirting, and improving yourself. Even though it can be scary, it’s better to put yourself out there than to wonder what might have been. You’ll do great!

Sparking His Interest Again

Even if you haven’t spoken in a while, talk to him casually to reopen the doors of communication. This will put you in his mind again, as well.[1] Say “Hey Greg, nice shirt” when you see him passing you in the halls at work or school. You can even send him a quick text saying something like “Even though they’re not my team, congrats on Carolina winning the National Championship. I know you’re excited!”

A major part of sparking his interest again is actually seeing him. If you can, find out places he might be and show up there every so often. Make sure that when you do, you’re looking your best. You can even bring friends along with you if you don’t want to be alone.[2] For instance, you might go to the same gym, a party you know he’ll be at, or a coffee shop he likes. Only do this once or twice. You don’t want to seem like you’re following him.

When you do see him, greet him with a smile. As you’re talking, mimic his body language to show that you’re engaged in the conversation. This can be something as simple as putting your hand on your chin or tilting your head to one side.[3]

If you and this guy used to really like each other, you likely had some fun times together. Bring up some of those times when you see or talk to him. These might include an awesome trip to the beach that you took or even an inside joke that only you two share.[4] For instance, if you see him and you start chatting, you might say “Hey, did you see that they’re making a new “It” movie? I remember that time we watched the original and I was terrified!”

If you know you’re going to see him, be prepared. Maybe he used to tell you that he loves when you wear blue or that he likes a certain perfume you wear. Put both on that day and he’ll start remembering all the other little things he likes about you.

If you two are still friends on social media, why not show him what he’s missing? Post a cute picture or two weekly. You can post selfies or take pictures out with friends. Try to post pics that are of you out on the town or doing exciting things every so often.

Even though you might want to be as close to him as possible, most men truly do need their space. Avoid initiating all communication or always being the one to approach him to talk. Backing away from a man is one of the surest ways to get him to draw closer to you. Give him some time to miss you by doing your own thing once in a while.[5] Also, if he texts you, don’t always respond right away. Keep him waiting sometimes.

Flirting with Him

Remember that it's not just your words that get his attention, it's your expression and body language, too. When you see him across the room, make eye contact and hold it while smiling softly. You can either walk up to him slowly to talk or turn away and begin talking to friends to really spark his interest.[6] You can also touch him occasionally to reignite the spark. Touch his arm sometimes when you’re talking or hug him when you see him.

Use technology to your advantage to get him to like you again. Once a week, send him a cute and flirtatious text. This will make sure that you stay on his mind and will also boost his confidence.[7] Say something like “You looked so handsome today in that polo, David :-) “

Beyond his looks, if you notice him doing anything admirable, let him know. Men really like to feel admired and appreciated. Show him that you’re paying attention to him and that you think he’s awesome. Say “Wow, I saw how you helped that elderly woman yesterday get to her car. That was so sweet of you.”

Even though you might be nervous, it’ll be easier to get him to like you again if you two spend some time together. Instead of going on a traditional dinner and movie date, though, shake things up a bit. Ask him out to a trivia event to get your competitive vibes flowing or go to an amusement park together.[8] You can say “Hey, I remember that you liked Harry Potter. Did you know that they’re doing a trivia event downtown next week? I have tickets if you wanna go.”

If you take care of yourself, this guy is more likely to be interested in you. Take your time each day when getting ready and be sure to look your best. Shower daily, keep your hair neat and looking nice, and always wear clothes that fit well and are wrinkle-free.[9]

Even though you really want him to like you again, don’t forget about your most important relationship - the one you have with yourself. Every day, do something fun that’s just for you like reading a book, watching your shows, or even meditating.[10] Keep up with all your hobbies, too, like horseback riding, swimming, or do-it-yourself projects.

Though you should still give it a shot with this guy you like, don’t spend all your time on him! Keep a full schedule of things for you to do each day. Make sure to spend time each week with your family and friends.[11]

If he isn’t responsive to your texts or phone calls, doesn’t want to hang out, or if he tries to avoid you, move on. There are plenty of other guys out there who will be so happy to have you. Remember - this is his loss!
