How to make someone think of you
You don’t need to make calculated moves, wait hours before texting them back, or pretend to be busy when they call you. If you really want to stick in their mind, it’s not about what you do when you’re gone, but rather, what you do when you’re with them.
But I’m not going to just give you all the details right now. You’re going to need to keep on reading. Below, I’m going to talk about the ways to make someone think of you. That way, you can be on their mind 24/7. That’s what you want, right? Everyone needs a reminder of you now and then.
#1 Do they like spending time with you? See, when it comes to you floating around in their mind, they should like spending time with you. You don’t need to pretend or fake anything, instead, they need to enjoy doing things with you. This is how you create a lasting memory.
If they’re not into you, firstly, they probably won’t be hanging out with you so much, and secondly, they’ll forget you quickly. [Read: How to be emotionally available so you can actually feel love]
#2 First impressions matter. Yeah, I know. When you think of your first introductions with people, you’re probably cringing, but don’t worry. But listen, first impressions do matter. For example, a study showed that men fall for women faster than women. So, if you’re into a guy, you may be in luck. By first sight, most people can figure out if they’re attracted to the person or not.
#3 Be more open. If you want someone to think about you, open up. How can someone become interested in you if you’re not willing to talk and open up in front of them? This doesn’t mean you need to talk about your deepest darkest secrets, but you do need to open up just a little bit. [Read: Learn how to open up to people]
#4 Get chatting. Listen, when it comes to gossip, news spreads fast, and that’s what you want. If you want this person to start thinking about you or get the hint you’re into them, then you need to talk to a third party. If you speak to a mutual friend, they’ll be able to give a strong hint to this person, letting them know you’re thinking of them.
#5 Do something thoughtful. If you want to know how to make someone think of you and crave you, do something out of the ordinary. If they need help with their homework, help them. If they’re feeling down, take them out for ice cream.
See, it’s the small things that’ll keep you on their mind. Being thoughtful shows that you care about them on a deeper level. [Read: 15 small and effortless gestures that girls always notice]
#6 Don’t end on an angry note. You want to leave a conversation on a positive note. Of course, ending with an argument will keep you on their mind but not in a good way. You should leave the conversation on a positive note, that way they’ll replay the conversation in their mind and smile. Who doesn’t like to feel good?
#7 Use scent as a weapon. Everyone likes people who smell good, right? Scents are actually extremely powerful and can stick to long-term memories. If you wear a specific cologne or perfume, it can trigger memories of you if they smell something similar. If the smell of freshly baked cookies suddenly has you thinking about Christmas, it’s because the scent’s been woven into your memory.
#8 Make them laugh. If you want to leave someone thinking about you, make them laugh. Laughter is a great way to make people bond. Now, this doesn’t mean a romantic bond, but friendship is the first step. If you can make them laugh, you’ll be on their mind all the time. [Read: How to be charming and liked by everyone]
#9 Do fun activities together. If you’re just hanging out together, spending most of your time glued to your phone, you won’t be creating lasting memories. While you are hanging out, spend time actually doing fun things. This is what makes someone think of you, and they’ll miss you when you’re not around them.
#10 You don’t need to text all the time. You may think that you need to be in constant communication to build a bond, but that’s wrong. Give them some space so that they can start to think of you. If you’re always around them or texting them, how can they miss you?
#11 Do you like music? This may be a little corny, but if you hear a song that reminds you of them, why not share it with them? This doesn’t have to be anything deep, but it’s a great way to create a fun and lighthearted memory for the both of you. [Read: The corny signs you’re truly made for each other]
#12 Be empathetic. If someone feels that you don’t understand them, then they won’t spend time thinking about you. Be someone that they feel understands them and the first person they want to come to. This doesn’t mean you need to be a push-over, rather, be understanding of their feelings. Then, you’ll be someone they confide in and think of.
See, learning how to make someone think of you isn’t that hard. Now that you know what you need to do, it’s time to get them only thinking about you.
