5. You don’t have to give him everything right away

You don’t have to sleep with him or make out with him right away. He’s not your boyfriend, so don’t feel inclined that you owe him something. You don’t owe him anything. You’re not holding him down, telling him to chase you.

6. Show that you have a life

You have friends, you have a job, you’re going to school. You need to show you have a healthy life that isn’t influenced by a guy. You need to show him that you’re content without a man. And honestly, you should be happy without a guy.

7. Have some mystery

So you can burp the ABCs, but he doesn’t have to know that right now, leave that for the fifth date. You also don’t have to open up and tell him about your family drama or past relationships. Save that for later and leave a little mystery. [Read: How to be mysterious without being too distant]

8. Flirt

Just because you’re trying to make him chase you, you don’t have to be the ice queen. Have fun and flirt with him. If you want him to chase you, show that you’re interested in him. You have to give him a reason to chase you.

9. Less is more

If you are texting each other, don’t send him an essay. Honestly, no one likes to read pages of text on a smartphone. Keep your messages short and sweet, leave your words for when you two go on a date. [Read: Flirty fingers – How to turn a guy on over text in 10 easy steps]

10. Don’t swoon over him

If you want to know how to make a man chase you, and do it right, the worst thing to do is sit, holding his arm as you look lovingly into his eyes. He’s not god and if you want him to chase you, you can’t let him think that anyway. Sure, compliment him but don’t go all googly-eyed over him. It looks needy and clingy.

11. Be sexy

Now, you don’t have to dress like someone you’re not. But you can amp up your sexiness by enhancing features that you naturally have. No, I don’t mean get your lips filled, but you can wear a plumping lipstick or show off your curves. Men are visual, so it’ll drive him crazy.

12. Be easy on the drama

Men don’t like drama. Actually, they literally run if they hint an ounce of drama on you. They can’t be bothered with it nor can they emotionally handle it. So, leave the drama at home or on the group message with your girls.

13. Don’t focus on him

This is the weird law of the universe. When you don’t pay attention to the guy you like, which is hard, he comes to you. When you pay attention, he’s nowhere to be seen. So, what you need to do, is kinda ignore the guy you like. I know, but we didn’t make this rule, the universe did. [Read: The dating girl code all girls need to know]

14. Be ready to drop him if he loses it

If he’s not meeting your standards, you should be prepared to let him go. I know you like being chased, but listen, if he’s everything a girl wants but never replies to your texts until days later, drop him.

He’s not really chasing you, he’s just waiting for an opportunity to slide in. You don’t want that. [Read: He’s not that into you: 20 signs it’s time to accept the truth]

15. Don’t give him all your time

Spend time with your friends, give yourself the alone time you need, but never give all your time to him just because he’s available and wants to spend time with you. If you want to make a guy chase you, he needs to see that you’re not always available for him *even if he’s available for you!*.

16. Don’t text him all the time

Yes, he’s texting you often. But that doesn’t mean you should too. Remember, you want him to chase you. Of course, once he wins you over, it’s okay for you to send him loads of texts to keep him updated about your life. But until then, keep your texts to a minimum. Let him know you enjoy texting him by using the right emojis and flirty texts, but don’t initiate texting just yet. [Read: 17 flirty, cute and naughty emojis guys use when they really like you]

17. Don’t be easy to please

He got you flowers? Aww… so sweet, isn’t it? But really, is it? It’s just flowers, you could have bought it yourself. Don’t glorify the little things he buys to impress you. Never give value to material things he buys for you, but give value to the gestures and the dedication he has for you. Guys know what they need to “buy” to win over a girl, so don’t be that girl who can be “bought over”. Let him see that the only way he can win you over is by his behavior, not the things he buys for you.

18. Stay active on social media

Update your profile picture, share more stories, post new pictures of you in your sexy best. If you want to make a man chase you, you need to be on his mind all the time. And you have to rouse his jealousy too. Make him wish he could be the one spending time with you, instead of the people you’re hanging out with!

19. Let him know he’s doing something right

If a guy is chasing you and trying to woo you, you need to appreciate his efforts. Don’t be the entitled girl who just expects a guy to do everything for her. Be appreciative, be warm, and let him know that you like him too.

BUT just remember not to put up with anything he does to offend you. If you understand how to make a guy chase you in your head, you’d be able to keep your heart out of it until you’re sure he really likes you and is willing to invest time and effort into the relationship he’s trying to create with you.

20. Know when to give a little

You can play hard to get, but if you’re always like this, at some point he’s going to throw the towel in. So, you need to weigh when it’s the right time to give him a little more. I mean, reward the guy at some point. It doesn’t have to be sex, but it has to be something, a kiss, something!
