Happy Valentine's Day...How to Snag a Hottie by Lucy and CeCee

Need a sweetie for the (gasp) big day?  Follow these tips from Lucy and CeCee's How to Survive (and Thrive) in Middle School...

  • Find a good candidate starting with someone who likes you for you. Other quality traits to look for in a guy are sweet, funny, and genuine. And let’s face it: cute doesn’t hurt, either. Stay away from boys who ego trip or only think about themselves.
  • When talking to him the first few times, you may be a little nervous. If so, ask him questions about himself or his classes. Here are some good questions to ask:
§  What are you listening to on your iPod?
§  Do you have (name a teacher)? How is your project coming along?
§  Are you going to the football game on Friday?
§  Do you know what time the bell rings?
  • Try to be friends first and get to know him in a casual setting. This will make the going-out stuff less awkward.
  • If you want to ask a guy out, approach him when he’s alone—not when he’s hanging with “the guys” and absolutely not when he’s talking with another girl. If the coast is clear, pop a breath mint, take a deep breath, and go for it!
  • Do a little recon investigation, and find out what your dude is into. If he likes sports, talk about a local or state team; if he likes music, chat up tunes and bands.
  • Don’t talk too much about yourself. For most guys, this is a turnoff.
  • If he makes a joke, laugh. Guys like to think they belong on Comedy Central.
  • If you’re apt to blush when you gush, don’t fret. Most guys think this is cute.
  • Make signs that you like him and are interested by smiling, making eye contact, lightly touching his arm, and the like.
  • It sounds dorky, but practice talking to your crush in the mirror. When the time comes, you’ll be a silver-tongued smoothie. 

Helpful Hint #1: Don’t be a stalker.* Guys are pretty simple to figure out. If they like you, you’ll know it. If they don’t, move on. 

Helpful Hint #2: Don’t have a friend tell his friend to tell his friend that you like him. Do your love work yourself! It shows confidence!

 Happy Valentine's Day!!!
