The good thing is that, contrary to your perceptions, high school is the ideal spot to meet the type of man you’d like to have. It’s as simple as that the reason is that friendships in high school have more maturity.
At this point, males begin to develop increased confidence in their abilities, so don’t be amazed if they contact you first instead of engaging with someone. In addition, it is the place where the majority of middle schools teach their students.
This means that you’ll probably go to high school and get to know many different “prospects” other than the ones you knew when you attended middle school. As you keep these suggestions in your mind about finding a boyfriend at high school, here are some more ideas tips that could be helpful.

Look at Yourself.
The natural first step to getting a boyfriend is to start with yourself. Take a good look at yourself in the mirror. Simply put, would you date someone like you? Do you always try to look your best? Are you clean? Is your hair clean and neatly brushed and kept?
Do you smell good? Try always to wear clean, well fitted, and decent clothes. Look after your skin by washing and moisturizing daily. Try using a little makeup, but only to the degree that makes you comfortable. Don’t wear too much because it will only make you look fake. The point is to be yourself, not someone else.
Unless you’ve never noticed, it’s a lot harder to find a boyfriend if you’re shy and withdrawn rather than being confident. It’s hard to be satisfied if you’re not already, but it’s also possible that you can be if you try. Here are some suggestions to improve your self-confidence:
- Increase your self-esteem, which means to value yourself. As frequently as you can or want to, have mirror talks with yourself to reinforce your image of yourself. It would help if you convinced yourself that you have value and are a good person who has qualities any person would appreciate.
- Make sure you are happy with yourself. Don’t compromise your beliefs or your standards just to be liked because, in the end, you won’t end up enjoying yourself or what you stand for. This is when it becomes hard to look at yourself in the mirror.
- Speak well. Use emotions that portray yourself well.
- Have good posture. Keep your shoulders back and hold your head up high. You have worth, and you need to make people believe that you do.
- Don’t be shy or nervous. Just remember to be yourself.
- Perhaps most important of all, smile! A smile is contagious. Put one on, and the world will catch it from you. If you smile at a guy, chances are very good that he will smile right back at you.
There are a lot of misnomers about getting someone’s attention for starting a relationship. First, if you’re a girl, it’s okay to be smart. It would help if you didn’t have to dummy down to make a guy feel comfortable with you. Believe it or not, being smart is good and a desirable trait to have.
If you are not currently having any luck finding a boyfriend department, think about who you spend your time with. If you spend your time with many girls, it’s little wonder that you don’t have a guy in your life.
Are there any clubs or other organizations on campus or in the surrounding community that have a lot of guys involved with them? If you look, there might be some of these groups that have guys that have some of the same interests as you do. Try joining them, so you have something in common that you like to do or talk about.
Don’t be Desperate.
There are young people–yes, guys too–who are desperately seeking. They will do anything to find someone. Unfortunately, “anything” covers a lot of territories that Who should not cover at such a young age. Start by getting to know someone by talking about anything. Start small, but don’t be overly flirty, or you will come across as a player.
Learn to Flirt.
When you finally find someone to who you are attracted, do you know what to do? Many people don’t. And frankly, there’s nothing wrong with knowing what to do. Do you bat your eyelashes? Wink? Call him a cute nickname? Touch (appropriately)? If you don’t know how to try it. Just like practising anything, you learn best by doing.
Dress and Act Like a Young Lady.
Dress like a lady who is interested in getting into a serious relationship. This does not mean looking like a slut. These kinds of girls are only telling people–yes, everyone will eventually get the word–that they are tramps. It’s that easy. A young lady knows where the boundaries are, and although they dress like a lady, they know that being scantily clad is not a lady.
Remember How to Act on a Date.
Never forget that if you find yourself attracted to someone, there’s a good chance that they are attracted to you too. If that is the case, a guy will probably ask you on a date. Don’t be overly anxious, but if you accept his offer, be gracious and take him up on it. Keep things you like to do and see in mind if he wants to know what you would like to do, and always offer to pay or help pay the costs. Even if he decides that he wants to pay for you, make the offer.
Don’t be afraid to show the world your true colours.
But, first, they will probably like what they see, and besides that, being yourself is the best thing you have to offer the world.
