It’s a tale as old as time itself: guy falls for guy, guy gets ignored, guy cries. We’ve all had a crush on someone who doesn’t even know we exist – but how can we grab a guy’s attention without seeming desperate and needy? Thankfully, this is all a lot less complicated in the online world. On PlanetRomeo, there’s a bunch of ways to get a guy to notice you without setting up camp outside his house with some binoculars and a big sign.

Leave a footprint

The perfect choice if you’re too shy to send a message, footprints let you compliment a guy with minimal effort but maximum impact. Take your pick from our wide range, but be sure to make a wise choice. ‘Really Sweet’ and ‘Very Hot’ are popular choices, but if you really want to catch a guy’s attention, consider choosing something a little more out there. Feeling romantic? The ‘Man of my Dreams’ footprint is sure to make him notice you, or if you’re looking for something more immediate, ‘Horny Pig’ will send him a message he can’t ignore.

Choose a good profile pic

First impressions are crucial, so make sure you make a good one. Choose a photo that’s clear, well lit and can easily be seen even as a thumbnail. Profile photos are also a great way to show off your personality. Love travelling? Choose a photo of you in an exotic location. Love to read? Have a strategically placed stack of your favourite books in the background – it could make for a good conversation starter. And if you’re comfortable with flashing some flesh, don’t be shy to whip off your shirt – no matter what your body type, there’s sure to be someone out there who’ll appreciate it!

Fill out your stats

A full profile is a happy profile. Take advantage of the opportunity to tell guys about yourself – everything from your favourite food to what you like to do in your free time. You’re more likely to get a good match if guys can get an accurate idea of what makes you tick. And don’t forget you can tell potential partners your sexual preferences too, from your fetishes to which position you prefer in bed.

Write a catchy headline

Your headline will likely be the first thing a guy reads, so make it snappy. There’s not a lot of space, but there’s still plenty of room to give other users an idea of who you are and what you’re looking for. Light-hearted, funny headlines will make you sound laid back and approachable while an interesting fact about yourself could be a good way to break the ice. Keep it short, catchy and memorable – and don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd!

Write a good first message

Your first message is super important so let’s make sure we get it right. Be friendly and casual, but try to include something that will make you stand out. Show him you’ve taken the time to read his profile by mentioning one of his interests or something that caught your eye in his photos. Be sure to include a question to give him a reason to reply, but try and be a little more creative than ‘how are you?’ – he’s probably bored of that.

So there you have it – 5 easy ways to get any guy to notice you. Try them out and never have to worry about being ignored again. 😉
