We’re all guilty of doing some questionable things to get a guy’s attention, and it’s normal to want to make yourself stand out. However, there are some pretty crazy things that you should never do just to get a guy to like you. These are the top six!
1. Ditch your family and friends for him.
There is no hard and fast rule that your guy must get along with your family and friends. While it would be picture perfect if everyone likes each other and are BFF, real life isn’t always so easy. However, if you find yourself constantly having to choose between your inner circle and your boyfriend, or he says negative and hurtful things about them, he might be trying to pull you away. Just remember that a man who truly cares for you would never want you to ditch the people who love you, and you love, the most.
2. Make a huge life decision.
The only decision you should make in hopes of impressing a guy is what shoes to wear on your dates. Things like career choices, where you live or how you spend your money should be totally off limits until you’re well into a serious, committed relationship. If your crush is in med school a few hours away, this isn’t the time to make a career change to nursing, or move across the state to be closer to him. That is way too much, too soon. Oh and don’t go get a cute puppy just because your crush loves animals. My friend did that once and it totally freaked the guy out, obviously. Take it slow!
3. Alter your appearance.
Just because you’ve heard that your crush has a thing for blonde girls doesn’t mean you should reach for the bleach! From hair colors, to breast augmentation, there is no shortage of women willing to alter their looks to impress some dude. While there is nothing wrong with wanting your crush to find you physically attractive, changing your hair color or going under the knife in hopes of getting a boyfriend doesn’t guarantee he’ll like you. Instead of trying to fit into someone else’s definition of “perfect”, focus on being the best and hottest version of you! When you feel good, you look good-and that is sexier than long blonde hair or a huge chest. Not to mention, any guy who only dates women with certain physical qualities that he deems “perfect” doesn’t sound like someone risking your life for, now does it?
4. Sleeping with a guy simply to impress him is a huge mistake, simply because it never works. Sex isn’t all that impressive if you think about it, if he’s not getting it from you, he’ll get it somewhere else, so it’s not enough to keep a guy interested in you when the deed is done. If you have to resort to shagging it up to get a guy to like you in the first place, he’s probably not that invested, and you’re only hurting yourself in the long run. While there are plenty of couples who say that there is nothing wrong with having sex right away, it’s best to err on the side of caution and make sure there is more to it than just physical attraction. Sex shouldn’t be the level you connect on.
5. Act like a drunk crazy person all of the time.
We all know that alcohol is liquid courage, and I’m not immune from sipping on a glass of red before a date to “loosen up” occasionally. However, I wouldn’t say that there is anything impressive about getting completely wasted on a date with a guy you like, would you? Sure, you’re loose and relaxed, but you also run the risk of acting sloppy and uncontrollable. If you’re trying to show your guy how fun you are, remember that it’s also fun not to black out with a strange guy, and that waking up confused and embarrassed isn’t exactly confidence boosting. Partying happens, but in general, sip responsibly.
6. Try to bring a romantic comedy to life.
I have always said that if a guy showed up at my window in the wee hours of the morning with a boom box playing a sweet song (like in Say Anything), or flew to Portugal to propose to me in my native tongue (like in Love, Actually), I would swoon forever and marry him. But, that’s a total lie…I mean, my husband could barely call me back when we were dating, let alone propose to me in Spanish. But I’m fine with it, really! Even though those things are adorable to day-dream about, they would have sufficiently creeped me out, and it’s a good reminder that what works on the big screen doesn’t always translate well to real life. Big romantic gestures should wait until you’ve established some sort of solid relationship, or else you risk coming across as too overbearing and intense. So no showing up at his house in the early morning hours, no taking his mom out to lunch and just no surprises in general, as an overall rule.
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done to get someone’s attention?

These PPEs comprise N95 respirators, surgical masks, examination gloves, face shields, medical gowns, no-touch thermometers, disposable aprons, heavy-duty rubber gloves, rubber boots, basic masks, disposable gloves, and hand sanitizers.
Since the first confirmed case of the disease in Nigeria reported in February, over 800 healthcare workers have contracted the disease. While Nigerians are encouraged to stay home where possible and practice social distancing, these healthcare workers are needed across the country in the continued fight against the disease.

Taking Care of Tomorrow’s Leaders Today – The itel, Lagos Food Bank Example
Waking up to a special meal or choice gift is the best feeling ever. Hundreds of children in Mushin, mainland Lagos, had a filling taste of this feeling for the October 1 st celebrations. It’s an experience they will remember for a long time.
Being one of the most responsible corporate citizens around, celebrating Independence Day was always going to be on the radar for itel Mobile. To make this possible and memorable, the brand got to work in earnest. The focus of the work was picking the best way to commemorate the 60th independence anniversary of the most populous black nation on earth.
The efforts soon paid off through an impact-driven partnership with the Lagos Food Bank Initiative. With the arrangement, both partners considered a couple of activities capable of affecting communities positively and bringing smiles to people’s faces in Lagos. At the end of the exercise, taking care of children, the leaders of tomorrow, in the commercial city secured the highest votes.
With the decision, itel Mobile set about making this happen. Not surprisingly, the decision was
influenced by giving children the means to excel and prepare them for leadership and nation-building, for them to enjoy better life. For the good of their immediate family, community and the Nigerian society.
Idiko, Mushin, a suburb of mainland Lagos, was chosen as the benefiting community. And the partners strategically reached out to the beneficiaries, children and families, with gifts of love, care, happiness and support made possible by the itel Love Always On CSR initiative.
Over 1,000 families benefited from the gesture as well as 600 children, and each one of them received food packages to celebrate Nigeria’s 60 th Independence Day commemoration.
Speaking on the event and itel’s Love Always On CSR Initiative, Oke Umurhohwo, itel’s Marketing Manager said, ‘We wanted to mark this year’s Independence Day celebrations differently, and that is why we did something so momentous for our children. Children are the backbone of any longstanding community, and as such, we are proud to be able to give back and support them on their journey as leaders of tomorrow and for a better life.’
To meet the demands of the memorable event, 30 volunteers joined the customer-centric brand and the Lagos-based NGO to share smiles, and to convey just how important it is to love and take care of today’s children who will ultimately become leaders of tomorrow.
With the thoughtful activity, there are insights for everyone, from the government to citizens, on partnerships that are capable of making life better for children. Indeed, itel Mobile and the Lagos Food Bank Initiative have offered a great template on bringing this to reality.
