The stars know how you can capture his attention.
The first step in any game of love and romance is capturing your potential mate's attention. Since we've come a long way since the caveman days, we can't just set our eyes on a man and hit him over the head with a club to get him to notice us.
Throughout time many things have been written about this, especially when women were encouraged to be submissive and had to follow certain rules of decorum. Women weren't allowed to make the first move and had to wait until their potential suitor noticed them.
Although they were limited in what they could and couldn't do to get a man's attention, they still had their ways of doing so — ways that are still being used today such as flirting, leaning in to indicate how closely you're listening to what he's saying, or averting your eyes so he knows you're staring at him and don't want to get caught.
The types of smiles and how they're used when trying to attract the attention of a man could fill volumes: small smiles, smiles that seem to include the eyes, and shy smiles. You want him to sense that you're interested but you don't want to scare him off with your interest. You also never want to send the wrong kind of vibes that push men away.
Attracting the right kind of attention is key, but it can be complicated as every man is different; what may work for one is the completely wrong thing to do for another. But lucky for you, astrology is here to help.
We know that people who share the same zodiac signs often share the same characteristics, behaviors, and likes and dislikes. If you know what a man's zodiac sign is, you can get some important clues as to what he might respond to and what might capture his interest.
An Aries man believes in love at first sight, but that doesn't mean he doesn't want a challenge. When you play hard to get with an Aries, they find that intriguing and are drawn closer to you, desperate to figure you out.
If you give an Aries man a little bit of competition, without overshadowing his achievements and strengths, he'll start to become very interested in you, especially if he can't completely figure you out. Lastly, and this might seem a little old-school, but compliment them but in a real, natural way. They don't like kiss-asses but they do like to hear how amazing they are.
Warning: it's going to take a lot longer than you think to capture a Taurus' attention — slow and steady definitely wins this race. Give him small presents or make him a batch of cookies to let him know you appreciate him.
Taurus' have great senses of humor, so be witty, funny, and don't worry about being a bit blue in the humor department. Show him that he can trust you and that you're as dependable as he is, and he'll start to consider you as more than just a passing acquaintance.
If you want to attract a Gemini man, you'll have to appeal to their intelligent and charming personalities, and be prepared to compete with others for it. Geminis are completely up-to-date on world events and politics, and love to talk about them, so be sure you can hold your own in a conversation.
Geminis are spontaneous and love going on adventures without planning it all out in advance. If you can come up with fun, spur of the moment dates, he'll love you for it. Be sure to dress sharp — you don't have to be on trend, but have your own style that's captivating.
Surprising tip: Geminis love getting handwritten letters, so try capturing his attention the old-fashioned way: snail mail.
A Cancer isn't going to see you across a crowded room and immediately fall in love with you; in fact, it will probably take a lot for him to notice you. If you demonstrate what a caring person you are — not just to him but in a number of humanitarian and charitable causes — he'll notice you.
Don't make any bold moves or say anything brash; let him gradually realize how wonderful you are. Cancer men love to be pampered and babied, so do little things like cooking him a meal. You'll know that you've got his attention when he lets his guard down and starts to trust you.
It isn't that Leos are superficial, but they can't help but notice a beautiful woman. And luckily, beautiful women are attracted to Leos. If you want to stand out from the crowd, give him thoughtful gifts and make sure he knows you're thinking about him.
Leos are the one sign that enjoys being texted all the time. You'll really capture his attention if you make the grand gesture (something that Leo himself is good at), and as long as you make sure that the Leo is the center of attention, he'll be hooked.
If you want to gain the attention of a Virgo, you have to be fascinating and captivating — the ordinary girl next door doesn't interest Virgo much. If you do something that's not just assertive but smart as well, a Virgo will begin to notice you.
If you're the one at the dinner party who helps the host and hostess with clean up, or volunteer for a local charity, a Virgo will become interested and find that he's trying to put himself in places where you'll be so he can get to know you.
You've got your work cut out for you if you want to not only capture a Libra man's attention, but keep it as well. Libras are easily distracted and very popular so there's a lot of competition for their attention, too. Think of it as more of a seduction than just getting their attention.
You'll want to summon up all the charm and sophistication you can to captivate a Libra. Flirt, charm, but make sure you let them know that you think they're spectacular. If you can, ask him to dance; Libras love to dance, and when he sees the glint in your eye and your dazzling smile, he'll be enthralled.
The best way to capture the attention of a Scorpio man is to share in his interests and hobbies. If he's into working out at the gym, make sure you just happen to be there working out at the same time. Ask him to show you how to do a certain machine and compliment him on his form. While Scorpios do like to be complimented, they don't like liars, so make sure when you flatter him, it's the truth.
Scorpios are equal parts sexual and sensitive, so being sensual and letting him know that he can trust you will definitely incite his interest. Scorpios aren't game players and if they think you're playing them, you will get their attention... just not the right kind.
How do you stand out to someone who loves meeting new people and is captivated by almost everyone they meet? If you show Sagittarius your positive energy and lust with life, he will find you. Let him think that he discovered you, not the other way around.
If you can do something that helps a goal of his come true such as a job recommendation, he'll practically have no choice but to feel that he must get to know more about you. The Sagittarius man loves to travel and loves nature, so invite him on a white water rafting trip or a road trip to discover the hidden attractions of your state.
If you're an independent woman who has a full life with a lot going on, you've probably already attracted the attention of a Capricorn. They can't resist strong, intelligent women with integrity who can take care of themselves. Show him that you won't be treated like a doormat, and that you're willing to work hard and stand up for your beliefs.
The best scenario is if you work with a Capricorn and take the lead on a project. Ask him out for a drink when you get that contract that's going to be huge for the company. Share with him your career ambitions, goals and your achievements, and be sure to ask him about his. Be your real self and the Capricorn man will be beyond intrigued.
First of all, if you want to get the attention of an Aquarius, don't try to be what you think is the type of woman he wants — just be yourself, no matter how unusual and unorthodox that might be. When you stand out from a crowd, the Aquarian man will notice you. Everything you think you know about attracting a man, flip that script and let your unconventional eccentric self shine through.
Since Aquarians are all about humanitarian causes, perhaps volunteer at any number of the organizations he supports. Once he sees you on that Walkathon or Spay and Neuter clinic, his interest is going to peak.
Pisces men have a reputation for choosing the wrong women. That's because they don't do the choosing, the women just sort of come into the Pisces man's life with very little effort on their part.
To capture the attention of a Pisces, you're going to have to have a plan. First, integrate yourself into his life as a friend or an acquaintance and gradually start spending time with him. Show him your feminine and sweet sides. Try to transport him to another world. Take him to an aquarium or a planetarium. If you can help a Pisces to see things in a new way, he'll be enamored by you.
