It happens often.
One minute you are going on with your life without a care in the world and the next minute the new boy moves in next door.
Over the course of the next few months you hope that he notices you.
However, after about a hundred new hairdos and outfit changes, you haven’t gotten as far as even getting a glance in your direction.
If you want to get the boy next door to know that you exist, you need to catch his attention.
You have to show him what makes you worth his attention.
You may want to start observing him when he gets home.
If you ever see him arrive with a surfboard, a basketball, some comic books, etc., you have found your prop.
Let’s assume it’s a surfboard.
Clearly, that means something to him.
Now, you are going to have to take interest in the ocean.
Since he is your neighbor, you should have some kind of idea of what his schedule is.
Now you plan.
The next time you know he is about to arrive home, be outside your house holding a surfboard as well.
He will notice that instantly.
Finally, he is looking in your direction after months and months of new hairdos and outfits.
This is when you wave at him.
He waves back.
More than likely, the first thing that will come out of his mouth is, “You surf?” And you reply, “I am learning. You any good at it?”
You have him.
He is going to become your coach and that means more you and him time.
By the end of the month as he has gotten to know you more he just may ask you out.
The key here is to observe him.
Find something you can use to relate to him.
You get his attention.
