Beat him at his own game.
Guys love competition, so they’ll probably be smitten for a gal who can whip their butt, whether it’s at Mario Party, mini golf, Trivial Pursuit, or in a batting cage. Showing off not only gives you stuff to bond over, but he’ll also be impressed at your skills–and he’ll be stoked that you’re into more fun stuff than gossip and shopping (two things dudes generally find a little boring).
The other good part of competitive stuff like games is that it’s an automatic flirting tool. A high five can linger into holding hands if you let it!
Any girl who’s smart, talented, and does her own thing is a catch (you!)–and less likely to linger in the friend zone forever.
