Everybody discovers somebody in their lifetime that makes their eyes light up, knees go weak, and stomach fill with butterflies. Here are some quick tips which will help improve you're chances of getting that special someone to feel the same way about you.

Tip 1: Improve you're appearance:

Although many would argue that you should not have to change the way you look to get somebody to like you, and that beauty is on the inside, it can not be denied that for the majority of people appearance is a fairly important factor. First impressions are very important, and If you have made more of an effort that usual to impress that special someone they are sure to notice. I am not saying to completely change the way you look, but perhaps if female put on a hint of red lipstick; or if male add some volume to you're hair. Appearance is what initially attracts someone, and personality is what makes them want to stay.

2. Find common interests:

By finding something that the both of you have in common, it provides the grounds of a conversation which can then progress. For example: "Did you watch X Factor last night?" could then progress on to which music he/she is into, this would again open up multiple conversation routes. If you can not find ANYTHING that you both have in common, then take an interest in something they enjoy doing and who knows you may find something you then go on to really enjoy!

3. Don't be too keen:

Coming on too strong is the biggest turn off for everybody, especially if you barely know them. Try to make them chase after you instead of vice versa. Be mysterious, by perhaps changing the plans you have made with them just to show that you are not too attached to them. Be careful to not reject them too much as they may get the idea you want them to stay away!

4. Drop subtle hints:

When you get to the point, having established several conversations and hopefully even meeting up one on one, you can then move on to SUBTLE hints. For example: Hinting to them that you want to spent more time with them alone. Or laughing at all of their jokes, even the ones that aren't funny! If he doesn't suggest to meet up even after you've dropped these hints, then you could suggest meeting up instead as they may just not be picking up on the hints; Don't be afraid to ask!

5. Touching:

Playful touching is going to trigger the other person to question whether you like them or not, this will keep them wanting to know more; they will chase you. Although it is important to just keep it playful, and not overdo it as otherwise you may come across as creepy - which is the last thing you want to be. Just perhaps lightly tap his/her shoulder when you want to get there attention, or when you laugh at something they say.

Hopefully these tips will get you on the right road with that special someone, if they don't and it doesn't work out just remember there are plenty of fish in the sea, they aren't the only one for you- It probably just wasn't meant to be! :-)

Good luck!
