– Alfred Lord Tennyson

12 Tips On How To Make Him Chase You
1. Make Him Step Up His Game
Just because a guy gives you flowers or chocolates does not mean you have to say him ‘yes immediately’. Make him go the distance to show how important you are to him. If he wants to be with you, he has to up his game. He has to do better and be better. Do not make it easy for him and give in.
When you do not say yes to a man, they are smitten with you and might chase after you. Do not settle for anything less. No, you are a prized person, and if he wants you, he has to earn your respect and love.
2. Let Him Know What Doesn’t Work For You
You are out with him, and he does something you don’t like? Instead of adjusting, call it out. This shows that you are not afraid to own who you are and what you dislike. It also reflects honesty, and men appreciate such qualities. They will not repeat things you are uncomfortable with and chase after you to figure out your likes.
3. Don’t Settle For Anything Less
Don’t settle for your partner if they are not committing to you. Giving in to everything they want can make your relationship toxic. Do not be complacent when they fail to show up on time or get angry and yell at you. Have a list of qualities you want in your partner and stick to it. Before long, you’ll notice them trying to be better for you.
4. Set Your Boundaries
Having boundaries will show your partner that you have standards and unwilling to compromise on them. They will respect your boundaries and try to figure out in other ways what makes you tick. Your man might try to do better instead of forcing you to adhere to their rules. It is a subtle way of chasing someone.
Until you are sure that this is the man you want to be with and he lives up to your expectations, do not go exclusive with him. If you want to see other people, go for it. Show him that other men are interested in going out with you. If he genuinely wants to be with you, he will try his best and up to his game.
This might backfire, and your partner might break up with you. But if they could not go the distance to prove they want you, was it even worth it?
6. Have Sexual Boundaries
Taking things slow sexually can make a man chase after you. Just give him a taste of things – give him a little pleasure and then cut it off. This will drive him wild. It can be a seduction game or prolonged foreplay. You can make him chase you by being vocal about what you want in physical activities. However, if you are not comfortable being intimate with him, don’t push yourself to it.
7. Be Yourself
If you become someone else so that he chases you, it is not you whom he is after. It will only break your chance of being with him once he realizes that the person he was chasing was not really who you are.
8. Take Your Time
Don’t divulge all your secrets in a day to make him stay with you. Take your time to open up with him. Men will go to extreme lengths to make the women they like to open up to them. Let your partner work at peeling your layers before you let him in on your secrets and dreams. Allow him to show you that these secrets and fantasies are equally important to him.
9. Be Confident
Men chase after confidence. If they feel the person they are with is confident about themselves, they like it. Show them that you are confident in your work, life choices, or any other area you decide to pursue.
10. Don’t Be Afraid To Let Go
If he is not stepping up his game, just let go of him and walk away. Men find it boring when a woman is willing to forsake her beliefs and opinions for him. They find such women clingy and make them want space. Men want to chase after women who are not afraid to dump them. Cut him loose and watch the wheels turn in his head.
11. Be Dramatic
If you want to step out of your comfort zone and have fun, being a little theatrical might help. But make sure that you do not go overboard. Whatever you do should not be a contrast to who you really are. The aim is not to create a different you and fool him. The aim is to have fun with a tad bit of exaggeration. Show him your good and bad side while staying true to who you are.
12. Let Him Miss You
If you feel underappreciated, step back. Maybe you are doing everything for your partner without any acknowledgment. In such a scenario, let the man miss you. Do not reply to his texts immediately or be willing to show up when it works for him. Take a beat and time for yourself.
Is It Important That A Man Chases After You?
All through mythologies, history, movies, songs, and books, we find epic sagas of men going through great lengths to chase after a woman. While it may be beautiful, there is a lot of pressure on men to walk the extra mile and show a woman he loves her. However, a man does not have to chase after his partner to show love. He only needs to be caring, understanding, and loving.
If you want to be chased, you might not be happy once you’re caught. Things may seem too docile or simple for you. Also, if you are pushing your man to chase you, he might lose interest once he has you. The chase might be thrilling, but the relationship may sink.
If a man cares about you and wants you to be in his life, he will chase after you with everything he has. He will understand that you are too good to lose. But do not try to change yourself to please a man. If he does not want you for you, it is not worth it. Find a man who is not satisfied with the chase but the catch.
