1. Try new things with your crush
Being spontaneous is a quality that will serve you well in all forms of relationships.
It creates excitement, joy and unpredictability which are qualities your crush will admire and enjoy.
Far too many people resort to comfort zones in hopes of staying safe and not taking risks but they lose out on the opportunity of making epic memories.
Keep in mind that shared experiences often nurture the feelings of attraction and affection.
If you really want to impress your crush, you must be willing to make an effort to try new things and be adventurous.
Life is too precious to be wasted.

2. Write a cute note
Even though we live in a world that’s run online, it can never truly replace the sentimental value of things in real life.
A cute handwritten note will always hold more value than texts you send on a screen.
Anyone and everyone does that. The novelty of a note or letter is something that has stood the test of time.
Your crush will appreciate the romantic gesture and consider it a sign of your interest.
Furthermore, they’ll admire the fact that you stepped out of the norm to impress them.
It doesn’t have to be a long winded letter that’s confessing undying love.
That can become quite cheesy and weird.
Instead, settle on a short but sweet note that puts a smile on their face.

3. Always be punctual
I’ll be honest, I’m a stickler for punctuality. When making arrangements with someone, it is a common courtesy to show up at the agreed-upon time. It’s also courteous to alert them in advance if you are going to run late.
It’s rude and annoying to make someone wait for you, especially on a date. You’re trying to impress your crush, not just anyone.
You have to make an effort to be on time because it shows that you care about making a good impression and respecting their time.
It’s also a simple and easy way to impress your crush by showing him or her that you are reliable and well organized.
4. Be bold and assertive
When you are bold in what you say and do and the manner in which you carry yourself can be described as assertive and strong-minded, you will appear to be confident to those around you.
If you’re looking for one of the best ways to impress your crush, let it be through confidence.
Well, confidence is known as one of the most attractive qualities in a person.
Those who are confident are often bold and assertive. They are willing to express how they feel without fear.
When they want something, they go after it even at the risk of failure.
Your crush may be drop dead gorgeous or handsome to you.
They may be everything you like in a partner.
And this may intimidate you but if that doesn’t stop you from asking them out or making a move, it’s going to impress your crush because that’s a sign of confidence.
5. Cook a meal to impress your crush
Whether you’re a guy or girl, it doesn’t matter, learning how to cook and being able to prepare a delicious meal for your crush is impressive. It’s also the quickest way to their heart because most people love food and love to eat.
It also shows ambition and the ability to be self sufficient.
Knowing that you can cook paints this picture that you are capable of not only taking care of yourself but those around you.
Another reason why it’s a good idea to cook a meal to impress your crush is because it’s thoughtful.
Anyone can go to a restaurant and pay for a meal but not everyone can go through the trouble and effort of cooking a meal for a date.
6. Share your passion for things with them
Another one of the best ways to impress your crush is to share your passions for certain hobbies and activities with them.
Even if they don’t understand it, seeing your enthusiasm and positive vibes over something you genuinely care about will be attractive.
It shows the depth of your personality and also brings out your most passionate side. Passion feeds off passion.
You’re giving your crush a taste of how invested you can be in something you care about.
And that’s going to plant a seed in their mind of what it’s like to be with you.
Also, it’s a nice way to connect on a personal level and it might just encourage your crush to share their likes and interests with you.
This will create ample topics to talk about that you both enjoy.
If that isn’t a great way of building a connection or rapport with each other, I don’t know what is!
7. Make them laugh
If there’s just one thing you take away from this article on ways to impress your crush, let it be this – laughter is the key to love.
It really is.
When you can make someone laugh, chuckle, giggle and smile, you make them feel good.
The more this happens, the more likely it is that they start to associate happiness and good feelings with you.
Love and romance prosper when happiness and good feelings are attached to them.
Life is often stressful, so when you bring a dose of pure joy to someone’s life, they will absolutely appreciate it and feel fond of you.
Part and parcel of being funny is to be laid back. In other words, don’t take yourself too seriously.
It’s okay to be goofy and fun at times.
8. Be charming
If you do a search of the word charming, this is what you will find – “the power or quality of delighting, attracting, or fascinating others.”
There’s this perception that charm is a talent you have to be born with. That couldn’t be further from the truth.
To be charming, you just have to exhibit certain behavior around people you want to impress.
When someone doesn’t know what to expect from talking to you, fascinate or delight them by being humble, show an interest in what they are talking about, hold eye contact while smiling admirably at them and throw in a few sincere and deserved compliments.
Focus on finding a mutual understanding and relatable things to build chemistry.
These simple techniques will help you to be charming and to impress your crush.
9. Pay for dinner
In general, spending money on someone isn’t necessary at all to impress them but if you can afford it and want to impress your crush in this way, more power to you.
If you’re a man, it’s going to make your crush feel impressed that you’re dining them.
It also shows that you can be a provider.
If you’re a woman, it’s going to show that you’re successful and open-minded when it comes to the financial dynamic in a potential relationship.
Either way, it’s a cool thing to do and it would be unfair to not mention this.
10. Stand up for them
It always feels great to have someone by your side who is willing to defend you when challenged by someone who is rude, obnoxious and nasty.
If your crush is someone gentle and doesn’t really stand up for themselves out of fear or social anxiety, standing up for them might be a great way to impress your crush.
Just don’t do anything embarrassing or ridiculous. Maintain your composure but be strong willed.
11. Be supportive during difficult times
Sometimes, it can be extremely tempting to try and fix your crush’s problems but it may not be realistic. They may not even want you to do anything.
In such an event, the only thing you need to do is be supportive.
Offer words of comfort, be motivational, be a shoulder to cry on and reassure them that things will get better.
These simple actions can offer enough support to get your crush through a difficult time.
When they start to feel better, don’t be surprised that they are impressed by your ability to handle them during a tough situation.
12. Be open and forthcoming
One of the scariest things to do with someone you have a crush on is to be vulnerable.
It’s natural to be afraid.
You don’t want to make any mistakes or to get rejected.
But, part of what makes romance so enthralling is being vulnerable in front of someone you like and having them accept or love you for it.
It may not be easy but make an effort to share how you feel. Be open and forthcoming about your thoughts and opinions.
By seeing you be vulnerable, it will make them feel comfortable to do the same.
13. Don’t be intimidated by their good looks
Let’s be brutally honest for a second, men and women who are at peak appearance know it.
They’re aware of it because of the constant attention and compliments they receive about looking good.
At the same time, they’re also aware of how most people who try to hit on them are often intimidated by their good looks.
For this reason, they don’t really get approached and asked out often because their looks can be so intimidating to others.
That can work to your advantage because if you approach them with confidence and muster up the courage to ask them out, it makes you stand out from the crowd.
Even if they reject you at this time, your crush will be impressed by your boldness and confidence.

14. Be opinionated and live by a code
Here’s the thing, always voicing a negative opinion can be off putting and annoying.
However, not ever sharing your opinion and just going along with whatever other people say and do will make you look weak.
You’ll feel miserable and it won’t do anything good for your self esteem.
This is why it’s so important for you to speak up when something makes you feel uncomfortable or when you’re being disrespected.
Even if that means you have to say something to your crush.
It can be scary to do but they’ll admire you for having the inner resolve to call them out in a respectful manner for crossing a line or being disrespectful.
15. Ask open-ended questions
If you want to inspire a fun and entertaining conversation with someone, always ask open-ended questions.
It gives people an opportunity to open up about their thoughts and experiences whilst giving you ample opportunities to ask more questions that move the conversation forward.
Once someone starts to open up, they’ll feel more comfortable around you.
Additionally, it comes across as if you are genuinely interested in talking to them.
If there’s one thing I know, it’s that most people love to talk about themselves. I’m going to link an article of the best questions to ask a girl on a date below.

16. Listen attentively to your crush
Asking open-ended questions is one half of the equation to a good conversation, the other half is to be a good listener.
Nothing is more frustrating and disheartening than to observe someone losing interest or not paying attention when you’re talking about something you care about.
Look at your crush when they are talking to you. Acknowledge the highlight of what they are saying by nodding. Repeat back certain things they tell you.
Ask them to elaborate on a specific point or experience.
17. Remember the little details about them
If you quiz a lot of couples who are in love about their first experiences with each other, they’ll be able to remember tiny details about the first few dates and conversations because they paid attention and enjoyed it.
It’s not always easy to do this when you’re bombarded with nerves and anxiety.
But, make a mental note of what they were wearing, the things they liked to eat and so forth.
These little details about them, when shared in the future, will solidify your romantic side and interest in them.
They’ll be really impressed by you, that’s for sure.
18. Don’t chase your crush when they are busy
I used to make this mistake during my teen years. When I crushed on a girl, I’d do everything I could to be around her and get her attention.
This wasn’t the smartest move at all. I never realized how desperate and clingy it made me look.
These are not attractive qualities.
Understandably, you want to be in contact with your crush but don’t over do it.
Give them some space.
You’d be surprised how a little distance can make someone miss you and reach out.
When they do, you can give them your attention and be content knowing that they actually want to talk or hang out with you.
In fact, some people will purposely pull away for a bit to see if you will fall apart and chase them.
Your crush will be impressed if you don’t.
But, at the same time, don’t just be so unbothered that you don’t make an effort at all.
19. Dress to impress
Looking good will make you feel good. That extra boost of confidence will be noticeable to your crush.
Additionally, your crush may find you to look more attractive. They may also be appreciative of the effort you put into impressing them.
That, in and of itself, may be enough to impress your crush.
Wear clothes that fit your body shape properly, wash and style your hair, groom or beautify your face and use a nice scented cologne or perfume.

20. Maintain your independence
Someone who is co-dependent can quickly overwhelm those around them, especially in a romantic relationship.
What happens is that you place all your eggs of happiness into one basket which happens to be the person you like or love.
By doing this, you start to discard all the things you liked to do as an individual.
By the time you realize what’s going on, you’re no longer behaving like the amazing and independent person you were.
This is not attractive nor is it healthy for your well being or for your love life.
Don’t give up your independence as far as it applies to your career, ability to take care of yourself and to make important decisions.
21. Get fit and healthy
A great way to improve your self-esteem and build confidence is to get in shape and to eat healthily. It’s a form of self-love to take care of yourself.
The side effect is that you end up in better shape and your overall energy will improve.
Additionally, getting fit requires a lot of hard work, discipline and commitment.
These attributes are quite attractive in a person.
It may start with exercise but they will expand into other areas of your life and become a part of your character.
Your crush will be impressed by your physicality and mentality by doing this.
22. Be kind and generous
Kindness and generosity are undeniably good traits to possess.
They project a sense of care and gentleness that most people admire.
There’s nothing wrong with sharing what you have with others and making an effort to include those who can’t afford to have a good time.
Kindness and generosity are usually a sign of a good heart.
Who wouldn’t be impressed by that!
23. Don’t be rude to service providers
When I was on the market years ago, I’d always make a note of how my date treated the waiters and service providers.
Usually, if they were rude and unfairly dismissing waiters, it made me feel like this individual has a side to them that’s judgmental and inconsiderate of someone’s feelings, especially when it came to getting what they want.
It doesn’t cost a cent to be nice.
I’ll imagine myself in that waiter’s shoes and try to imagine how I’d feel being treated with such disrespect.
That would turn me off significantly.
Don’t make that mistake.
Be respectful, considerate, easy-going but firm. Trust me, this is one of those indirect ways to impress your crush that works.
24. Be secure and don’t be threatened by other people
Chances are such that you will face some competition from other people who also have a crush on the person you like,
This is normal and expected. After all, if they were not amazing, you probably wouldn’t have a crush on them as well.
Be that as it may, I don’t advise you to get fixated on who is trying to win over your crush.
You can’t control that at all.
The only thing you do have control over is how you behave and how you show up to each date.
If I were you, I’d focus more on having an amazing time with my crush when we spend time together.
The more fun and happy experiences your crush is having with you, the more likely it is that he or she gravitates towards you more than anyone else.
Without having to be jealous or insecure, you can get your crush to spend more time with you and choose you over others by just focusing on the quality of the time you spend together.
25. Communicate your feelings with respect
Last but certainly not least, express your feelings. If you’re too shy, you can do so via body language or a note.
Either way, if you have any intention of making things romantic, you have to take a shot at expressing attraction and affection.
This can be in the form of compliments and eventually, a confession of feelings.
The idea isn’t to focus on labels but to be loving and affectionate. The rest can follow naturally.
Trust me, your crush will be impressed by your willingness to share your feelings.
These 25 ways to impress your crush are guaranteed to work because they make you behave in a more attractive, confident, charming and secure manner.
The point of these tips on impressing your crush is to be the best version of yourself while making good memories and having a good time.
Trust me when I tell you that experiences matter when it comes to romance and the development of love.
You may have to step out of your comfort zone but that will only be to your benefit.
Be consistent and try your best.
That’s all you really need to do right now.
