20 Ways To Be Cute And Melt A Guy’s Heart

20 Ways To Be Cute And Melt A Guy’s Heart

Do you want to be the cute girl that makes his knees go weak when he sees you?

The girl who has the power to make any guy melt into a puddle by so much as looking at them?

It’s not about looks.

It’s about the style you have, and the attitude you create for yourself.

It’s kind of interesting how some women find it difficult to “be cute,” while others are naturally able to “come off cute.” Well… I have news for you. It’s actually really easy to be cute and I’m going to show you how. It’s not anything crazy or awkward, it’s actually super comfortable and natural.

So try out these 20 ways to look so cute and sweet that you melt the guy you want right into a puddle…

1. Always be smiling

If you’re smiling, you’re way easier for a guy to approach and talk to than if you’re frowning or not smiling at all. Try smiling a lot when you’re out in public, and you’ll be much more approachable.

2. Keep switching which foot you’re holding your weight on

Standing straight and tall means you’re confident and out there – not the cute, demure girl he should chase after. Try shifting your weight from side to side when you’re around him.

Men wish women would stop doing these things immediately.

3. Talk at a low volume

Don’t bellow out your words at him, don’t even speak in a loud voice. Try speaking softly, in a low tone to him, and smile at him after you say something.

4. Twirl your hair when you’re talking to him

Try running your fingers through your hair and tucking your hair behind your ear when you’re talking to him and trying to come up with the answer to a question or decide something.

5. It’s ok to be awkward

An awkward girl often lends herself to cuteness and melting a guy’s heart. Don’t try to hide it if you feel awkward, use it to make yourself look even cuter in his eyes.

6. Drop little jokes from time to time

Every so often, make a joke when you’re with him and have a good laugh! It will be so cute it’s irresistible to him.

Here are 15 ways we can fix our crappy dating culture.

7. Wear as little makeup as possible

A lot of makeup is for making yourself look overly sexy – and you don’t want to look sexy when you’re trying to look cute. Try subtle colors and really minor makeup work to look as cute as possible.

8. Enjoy yourself

Being cute is all about looking on the bright side and having fun. If you try to be as cheerful and positive as you can be, it will enhance how cute you look.

9. Let others control the conversation

Cute girls don’t take over the conversation and dictate what people talk about. They allow others to dominate the conversation, and play along with the people they’re talking to.

10. Wear pastel colors

Bright, loud colors won’t really work for the “timid, cute girl” vibe. Try pastels, which are softer and provide a much more subtle look.

11. Allow your shyness to flow out of you

It’s OK to be shy – in fact for a cute girl it’s the best thing you can be. Don’t try to be outspoken or bold, instead embrace your inner shy girl.

12. Wear flowery perfumes

Try perfumes that are sweet, and smell like flowers. Avoid ones that are extra intense or sensual. By sticking to fruity flowery perfumes, you’ll accentuate your cuteness.

13. Wear the right wardrobe

Try wearing softer clothes and fabrics that give your body and your look flow, instead of dressing in crisp clothes. The softer, the better, the cuter.

Don’t miss these 8 telltale signs he’s flirting with you.

14. Watch where you look

Don’t look him directly in the eyes all the time or challenge him with your stare. Instead, demurely look at your feet sometimes when you’re talking to him to get him to chase after you even more.

15. Sit the right way

Sit with your feet close together and keep your hands near your knees when you’re talking to him. It’s the easiest way to look cute without doing anything else.

16. Keep your hands still

Try not to gesticulate or wave your hands around when you’re talking to him. Keep them in your lap or by your sides to achieve maximum cuteness.

17. Wear your hair very softly

Try a new hairstyle that makes your hair as soft as possible with as much flow and waves as you can get to make yourself look incredibly cute.

18. Don’t try to be a sex bomb

Sexy means you’re out there and confident in your sexuality. Being cute is about being timid and nervous around him. Go for cute, not sexy.

19. Don’t pretend to be dumb

Cute is about shyness, being demure, and being coy. It’s not about acting stupid or silly. Being silly or dumb around a guy is a quick way to get him bored – and drive him off to talk to someone else.

20. Blush more

If you get a compliment from a guy you like, it’s more than OK to blush. It’s way cuter than shrugging your shoulders or giving him a playful shove.

    I say be yourself, who wants to keep up a fake representation? If u like to wear a lot of makeup, fo it, if you like unflowery scents, wear them, I will not be someone I’m not just to get a guy

  • _Glorrie September 4, 2021, 8:51 am

    Special thanks to @vixen because this list really worked out for me and we are really doing very well with my bf compared to the previous months before i had read this article but in all thank you sooooo much!

  • sarah February 1, 2019, 7:01 am

    This is bull I know and I bet there’s someone that like for who you are if u like wearing lot of makeup then do it there wanna be that one guy that is wanna love it and I’m sure about it be yourself and do never Change yourself for a boy/girl

  • XXX July 5, 2018, 8:11 am

    Girls, please don’t follow this advice. It’s outdated and just ridiculous. Why should you have to make yourself seem less confident for a guy to be attracted to you? I think that owning your sexuality is an amazing thing- playing innocent and lost and vulnerable is so 19th century – and if a guy really likes you for who you are, he’ll find your confidence incredibly attractive. The same goes for make up – if you want to dress in Barry anything and cake your face with make up because it makes you feel good and bad ass – do it! If a guy genuinely likes you for who you are, he’ll love you for your own distinct style/look/behaviour. There is no way in hell I would pretend to be less confident just to make a guy feel more dominant/comfortable in his masculinity. Girls and women are already lacking in confidence in the workplace and society in general – young girls shouldn’t be taught that to be liked, they must dress like a 10 year old and act like one.

    • It's me!!! August 31, 2018, 1:11 am

      I agree with you

  • Lizzy October 1, 2017, 12:56 pm

    This article is such bull**it. I’m the complete opposite of this article and I get called cute all the time. You know what is an actual good advice? Be yourself!

  • Shea July 6, 2017, 10:46 pm

    Honestly, I do a lot of these things. But I find that it makes me more comfortable to use my hands when I talk. And I’ll never stop doing that, because I’d rather feel comfortable around a guy, then look shy and insecure. And at the beginning of 2017, I did all of these things. But no guys were attracted to me. Now I’m just normal, I cross my legs, I do hand movements, I talk at a normal volume. And guys are now all over me, and they don’t feel awkward. I don’t act like some pretty perfect person, sorry. Whenever I’m embarassed, I embrace it. No reason to hide it. I accidently sent a guy a text saying, “O talkis” When it was meant for my friend. But he didn’t honestly care. It’s shameful that this article was made to tell women to think that they have to be a smaller person than the guy. They should be equal, and if they aren’t equal, then they aren’t a good couple.

  • Kim May 19, 2017, 3:50 pm

    oh come on, ladies. This is the romantic part of the male brain that responds to such cuteness, not the logical, rational part. If you’re giving off ‘cute’ vibes, it’s instinctual for males to respond in a protective, caretaking way .. there’s nothing insulting about it unless you’re determined to read it that way. Personally I think it’s adorable. I love seeing couples with that giddy, almost-nauseatingly sweet interaction .. wearing matching coats as little old people holding hands .. don’t be so hung up on equality that you’re willing to demolish the fragile quality which our grandfathers felt toward our grandmothers. It was charming, delicate, hilarious and, especially today, RARE. Treasure it if you ever find a man who looks at you like you’re the most priceless gem he’s ever seen .. and for Heaven’s sake, let him open your door for you. ;-)

  • rachael tess April 17, 2017, 4:20 pm

    I kinda love the list

  • A concerned Reader April 12, 2017, 7:03 pm

    I’m sorry, is this the 21st century? Because if it is, then I’m pretty sure that women can stand on both feet at the same time, speak at a normal volume, AND look a man in the eyes! But of course, this means that a man could never find her attractive, because women must be submissive to men and need to act like canines. God forbid they feel confident and comfortable own skin, because being who you are is so not cute! And being sexy and brave will never be appealing to the opposite sex. Maybe if this article was written with a quill, centuries ago, the author’s gender views would be fairly common. I pray that the author just got out of a time machine, because this is the only slightly reasonable explanation for why she is such a sickening sexist ignorant human being. I am saddened that a person, no less a WOMAN, publicly released these blatantly misogynistic suggestions for how to act around men. I sincerely hope that no one who reads this is closed minded enough to believe or complete any of the author’s ridiculous recommendations. I hope you figure out what time period you are in, and begin to develop ideas that involve respecting women and treating them equally. Thanks for reading this!

  • Angeline March 25, 2017, 9:26 pm

    I’m shy but like I’m small idk what to with in my hight. I also wear like sweatshirts and stuff though I’m a blonde I don’t know what to do because I small I’m shy I wear sweatshirts not pastels I just don’t suit speaking out loud and I don’t think he likes me anyways so what do I do know?

    • Yo April 16, 2018, 7:48 pm

      Small, shy, blonde cute girls are the literal best… Be true to who you are, and he will love you for that.

  • Me March 14, 2017, 1:12 pm

    Hi, um, so, being cute is not about being insecure in your sexuality, timid, quiet, and shy. How the hell is telling girls they shouldn’t use too many hand gestures, because the might come across as too confident a good idea? This is how you get insecure overpowered messed up girls. How about to ‘get a guy’ you just talk to him, be confident, and ask him out yourself. What’s the worst that can happen, he could say no? If he has to ask you, he might be nervous too! Pretty much, just ignore everything this page said.

  • Me February 26, 2017, 3:29 pm

    A lot of The guys these days don’t want CuTe they want a big butt,sexy,and big boobs this wouldn’t hold for a guy!

  • Rz January 21, 2017, 12:35 am

    I’m a widow, my husband passed away 14no hrs ago, and there is a young man who is interested in me,I had no intentions of even talking to another man let alone talking to someone who is young enough to be my son, I look very young for my age, but like the attention this person has been giving me. Is it wrong for me or too soon to be talking with this man??? Confused, lonely, and feeling not good about my self or wrong that I should be getting excited and laughing and smiling again I have r felt this way in many many yrs.

  • CharRose January 6, 2017, 5:10 pm

    Wth even is this?? I mean seriously? Shift from foot to foot so you don’t seem like you’re STANDING confidently? Stand down in a conversation to look “cute”? If a guy’s heartb”melted” just because I did these things there is no way he is worth it. I can be cute and freaking sexy and confident all at the same time. All these things are a waste of time and a dampen to my self esteem

  • SAucey November 2, 2016, 7:03 am

    This does not work what so ever this is dumb boys are days aren’t into that like wtf I’m inlybon the page to read the comment because there are always arguments but dang I can’t believe some of h believe this

  • Raquel July 28, 2016, 9:42 am

    This is the DUMBEST thing I’ve ever read!!

  • Angie June 29, 2016, 9:06 pm

    You forgot to write “And be yourself ” cause why would you be in a relationship when you are someone else?

  • tuya May 16, 2016, 9:03 am

    my b/f never seem to care about me…he hardly texts me during the day and when i try texting him he replies so late…but when am around him his always with his phone..last time i asked him he told me that his always busy and that the reason why he replies very late is because he tries to finish so he can have enough time for me which i don’t believe…

  • Mariah Bussell April 24, 2016, 1:01 pm

    Wow, this list will help me a little more and better, thank you! But I have a question.. How can you learn to trust I guy when he tells you something or promises you something and that he is being completely honest with you? I been having this problem on trusting guys and believing them because of my past relationships, I had been lied to, cheated on, hurt etc. and Im scared it could happen again for the 3rd time… I know this probably silly but do you have any advice??

  • Beatrice February 8, 2016, 1:56 pm

    Th’eres nothing like the relief of finding what you’re looking for.

  • Priscilla Coffey January 1, 2016, 10:36 am

    Cute girls have it easy. What if you are not exactly a model and feel awkward around boys?

  • Janice Ross January 1, 2016, 10:20 am

    I like qwirky guys so I would expect that they would also like it when I am the same way.

  • Tonya Pack December 31, 2015, 8:54 am

    My b/f loves it when I am just looking at him with a smile on my face. I can tell that he really likes my smile and that it melts him from the inside out.

  • Yolanda Magill December 30, 2015, 9:38 am

    I love being able to melt a guys heart. It shows they are somewhat sensitive and that I can get under their skin with it :)

  • Marylou Manning December 29, 2015, 8:43 am

    There are some girls that are real good at making cute a melting point, but then you have the “other” half :)

  • Lori Jones December 28, 2015, 1:15 pm

    Melting a heart of a man is not hard work. These are all very good tips and they WILL work just about every single time.

    • Beth Nichols December 30, 2015, 9:46 am

      Not at all. You find out what he likes about you and then you spread it on very thick!

  • Christina Salgado December 27, 2015, 9:35 am

    My b/f told me that he loves it when I make him laugh and he loves to hear my laugh so that is always the main goal for me.

  • Essie Wood December 26, 2015, 12:22 pm

    Having to “dress up” all the time for my job, getting home to put my relaxing clothes on and take my makeup off is a great goal each day. When my b/f comes home and sees me that way, he melts rather quickly. He says that it is just a more natural look that he likes.

  • Lauretta Doyon December 24, 2015, 12:26 pm

    Melting a guys heart is easy :) All they are thinking about is getting into the sack with you and that makes it even easier to tease them.

    • Grace Coon December 27, 2015, 9:52 am

      I always thought the same thing! Guys are easy!

      • Yo August 31, 2018, 1:13 am

        Some of them lol

  • Ann Lee December 23, 2015, 9:56 am

    I like to put on some perfume that I might not have had on for a while and watch his eyes light up when he catches a whiff of it :)

  • Myriam Hamilton December 22, 2015, 3:18 pm

    These are good hints for girls that want to get a guy to notice them, too. Flirting like this will easily get you noticed in any venue and that is what you want!

    • Katherine Nunez December 29, 2015, 8:51 am

      It is a good thing to keep in the back of your mind.

  • Michelle Fortier December 19, 2015, 8:42 am

    My b/f always told me that if I could make him laugh, he would have me forever.

  • Ila Collier December 18, 2015, 5:42 pm

    I LOVE this list. Getting my boyfriend to melt is on the top of my list. I am playing hard to get and teasing the hell out of him lately. He’ll like this :)

  • Elsie Amos December 18, 2015, 5:30 pm

    Guys are easy to melt :) Just a couple of these things would make my husband squirm.

    • Claudia Burton December 23, 2015, 10:04 am

      I found it to be quite easy as well.

  • Shane Addington December 17, 2015, 4:53 pm

    I melt when I see woman that have piercing eyes. That bright green or even a hazel type of color that is just a knockout for me.

  • Gerard Patterson December 17, 2015, 4:41 pm

    I love when my g/f acts in these ways :)

    • Joyce Real December 26, 2015, 12:37 pm

      I think most guys that are in situations like these should feel that way.

  • Ruth Reyes December 16, 2015, 1:00 pm

    I know my husband just about melts when he smells the sweet perfume that I wear occasionally. That is a good tip.

    • Ann Mulkey December 24, 2015, 12:36 pm

      Oh yeah, that is a great idea.

    • Rosalind Desrochers December 28, 2015, 1:28 pm

      Wow, that is a great point.

  • Lula Stark December 15, 2015, 10:04 am

    :) I like these. I have been teasing my new boyfriend quite a bit to see how he feels about us and I think that is working perfectly.

  • Jennifer Magno December 15, 2015, 9:54 am

    I never thought that twirling my hair would make that much difference, but it was a non-stop winner when I did it.

  • Christina Defreitas December 14, 2015, 9:41 am

    These are good tips. I have done some of these and noticed that it depends on the guy whether he is going to “melt” or not.

  • Anne Williams December 14, 2015, 9:31 am

    Switching the foot that I stand on is sort of weird. I get that you need to stand tall and all, but what does that actually do?

  • Tracey Dyer July 16, 2015, 4:41 pm

    LOL. This is a great list. ALL of these things would melt my b/f’s heart in a millisecond.

    • Elizabeth Ramos December 9, 2015, 9:02 am

      I know exactly what will happen if I pull any of these little teases and I do not have any issue with it!

  • Claire Bell July 16, 2015, 4:23 pm

    I was always told that I had a great sense of humor. I guess that is one way to make a man melt according to your list :)

  • Gabrielle Parsons July 16, 2015, 4:12 pm

    This is not even that hard for me. I can make my husband melt in 2 seconds with one look :)

    • Joyce Schultz December 9, 2015, 9:15 am

      I am the same way. Of course it helps that THAT look goes right into the bedroom!

  • Vanessa Ogden July 16, 2015, 12:50 pm

    I like how my b/f looks at me, so when he does, I give him the cutest smile I can and usually am touching my hair at the same time. Works like a charm!

    • Brenda Dougan December 31, 2015, 9:03 am

      that is one way to show him that you know what he likes.

  • Jonathan Williams July 10, 2015, 11:59 am

    Shyness is one that gets me every SINGLE time. I like this list and even as a guy, I can say that it is very accurate.

    • Carolyn Springfield December 16, 2015, 1:08 pm

      Very well said, Jonathan. Most men are too “man” like to admit things like this.

  • Samantha Wilkins July 10, 2015, 11:43 am

    I have a friend that swears that when she “acts” dumb, she gets more attention and I am going to guess that it is only for one reason.

    • Jean Hulings December 12, 2015, 11:15 am

      Well, that does not really seem like a good plan. Even though she is getting more attention, the end result is not a good one for her.

  • Melanie Cameron July 10, 2015, 11:30 am

    Twirling hair might seem that it is a little immature, but let me tell you that my man is a complete mess when I do it :)

  • Amanda Baker July 10, 2015, 11:20 am

    LOL. I love this list. It is all so innocent. I think if I would have read it about 10 years ago, I might have been taking notes, but it is different when you are dealing with guys in their 40’s.

    • Danielle Mooney December 22, 2015, 12:50 pm

      I have been doing this for years. men love it!

  • Alison Harris July 10, 2015, 9:35 am

    Melting the hearts of men is easy. Just wear as little as possible and talk in a sexy voice. Boom.

    • Mayra Farrell December 12, 2015, 11:29 am

      I have been melting the hearts of young men for many years :)

  • Leah Black July 10, 2015, 9:16 am

    Oh, I love this list. I am totally in love with this one guy and I want to knock his socks off, so I am going to try a few of these to see what happens.

  • Diana Clark July 10, 2015, 8:55 am

    Melting a guys heart is something I am pretty good at. I have tried many of the things on this list with my b/f, but it does not seem to affect him. What is up with that?

  • Theresa Springer July 10, 2015, 8:44 am

    The best part of flowery perfumes is that I like that as well. Its a win-win for us :) I have been melting my man’s heart for many years now and I love the reaction I get from it!

  • Alison Wilkins July 9, 2015, 1:00 pm

    oh baby. I am going to try some of these and watch my b/f get weak. Then I am going to play hard to get and make him wait for the “good stuff” :P

  • Michelle North July 9, 2015, 12:46 pm

    When I twirl my hair while talking to my man, the next step is usually the bedroom :)

  • Lisa Greene July 8, 2015, 2:36 pm

    I love this list. I have been dating a guy that thinks I am already cute and is a hopeless romantic that I am happy to have met. He would like many of these things and that is why I fell so hard for him.

  • Fiona Anderson July 8, 2015, 2:23 pm

    Once I am comfortable with a guy, I let me awkward side out. Most of the time they think it is cute, if not, that guy is a gonner :)

  • Ruth Howard July 4, 2015, 12:40 pm

    I am thinking that every one of these would get to my husband :) He is a hopeless romantic and the sweet things on this list are right up his alley.

  • Melanie Robertson July 4, 2015, 11:17 am

    I usually smile all the time and my b/f always tells me that it makes him smile. That is a good thing for a relationship right?

    • Amanda Hughes July 10, 2015, 9:46 am

      I would think so. Good luck!
