New in the dating game? Still testing out the warm waters? That's alright, it does take courage and a lot of patience to play the game right and once you get the hang of it, you're pretty sorted.
Making the first move on a girl is quite tactical and takes a lot more than confidence but the trick is to get it right the first time so you don't mess up the next time! Not like you can't mess up. Of course, you can, and by mess up, I mean you can try your best and even then she may not be impressed. But the fact of the matter is you did try your best.

Sometimes, making a move on someone can apply initiating a kiss or a make-out session but here, we're just going to talk about how to address your interest in a girl if you like her, have seen her and want to know her better or have known her a while and are a little clueless about how to approach her.
Here are 5 sure-shot ways that can help you in making your first move:(1) Signs Are Important
Signs are like an indication of whether or not you should make your move, so they are important. Signs can come through body language, the way she interacts, eye contact and other gestures.
For example, if you like someone at a bar, you will know if she's interested in you if she makes eye contact with you, which reeks of interest. That's your cue to go up to her and start talking to her. Similarly while in a conversation if she strokes your arm, laughs at your jokes, then you know you can make a move further because that's a sure-shot indication of the fact that she's interested in you.

By that I mean stop over-thinking about the how's and what if's and just go with the first thought in your head. If the first thought is just going to the girl you like and telling her about how you feel, then go for it. Wing it as best as you can, it works most times because it reflects the confidence you exude!

You can approach a girl and crack a funny one to get her attention since girls love men who're humorous. In fact, that's one of the best ways to make a move. If you floor her with humour she would automatically want to spend time with you because you make her laugh. It's as simple as that.

If you know her friend(s) then maybe you can try and approach them first and strike up a conversation with them and gain some perspective about the girl you like, if they're willing to help. This helps you kill the awkwardness you may develop while talking to her and boost some much-needed confidence too!

Yes, she loves hearing she's beautiful, she'd appreciate you getting her a drink but what most men don't do is compliment her mind. Strike up a rather interesting conversation with her. It could be about life, likes and the universe but pick up anything and hear her perspective on it. If it makes sense to you, definitely pay her a compliment because she deserves it.

Making the first move isn't hard if you follow through with these points. Just keep in mind to know that it's okay if she says 'no'. Rejection is part and parcel of the process, so it should be taken with positivity. After all, it all boils down to consent and how respectful you are in general towards women. Other than that, keep trying till you ace your moves!
