1. Say their name
You don’t have to say it at the start and end of every sentence (which will just be weird), but try to tie it into the conversation every once in a while. It not only demonstrates focus, but also fosters a sense of closeness.
2. Ask them for advice
Asking them for advice shows that you value their opinion. Also, research has shown that when you ask someone for advice, they’ll think that you’re smart for coming to them, which makes a better impression.
3. Listen actively
This involves asking questions when they share something with you and repeating some of the things they’ve said in a different way. It shows that you’ve been paying full attention and gives them an ego boost, which people never fail to react positively to.
4. End every conversation on a high note
Wrap up every conversation with something nice. Smile, say something funny or wish them a good week ahead — it’ll leave them with ~good vibes~ and make them look forward to the next time you guys talk.
5. Talk to mutual friends about them
Casually mention to mutual friends that you thought of that person while doing a particular thing. Your friends could end up passing on the message, and that special someone may not only feel flattered, but also more aware of your existence.
6. Ask them out
This gives them a clear indication that you want to spend time with them. People generally like being admired, and them knowing that you’ve been thinking about them will make them think more about you. It’s just one of those things.
