Jealousy: a guy's expression of love
If you want to know whether the guy you are hanging out with is serious about you or not, then you can try out a few tricks on him. If he falls for it, then your guy loves you for sure. But if he seems disinterested, then most likely he is not. But, if you don’t know the rules of this mind game, then it might backfire anytime. So, before you start playing the jealousy card on your guy, it's important that you know the rules of the game. There are times in a relationship when the girl feels she is being taken for granted by the guy. It doesn't feel good, so in order to give your guy a reality check, make him jealous. He will also start realizing that how important you are and how incomplete he will feel if you were not there by his side.
Making the guy jealous
When you are married for a long time, your husband starts thinking that he is the only priority in your life. You'll do everything possible just to please him and make him happy. But, doesn’t this rule apply to him as well? You should be his priority too and your married life should be filled with bliss. If you feel neglected in your married life, then it's time to make your guy jealous and make him realize your worth. It's not that hard to make your husband or boyfriend feel jealous.
But, always remember: If he comes to know that you were only playing mind games with him, then he might get upset with you. In order to make your guy jealous, start with something small that won't hurt him. If you do something stupid, then it can hurt your guy and ruin your married life as well. If you don’t like the possessive guys, then it is better to stay away from this.
There are chances that once you start playing this game, he might become a possessive boyfriend or husband who will keep calling you just to know your whereabouts. He might get suspicious about your activity and the men around you. Be prepared to handle all of this, and assure your guy that you still hold him dearly in your heart.
Ready to make your guy jealous?
Let’s get started with texting. Yes, you can make your boyfriend feel jealous through texts. A simple twist in your sentence, such as leaving out certain information, will force him to think that you are hanging out with some other guy when in reality you are just hanging out with your pet dog. Yes, it can be that simple. Excited to know more about it? Read on. When our boyfriend has sent you a text, don’t respond to that text immediately, even if you are sitting idle. If he has texted you in the evening, then give reply the following morning. Just let him know that you were busy last night, so you weren’t able to text him back right away. Don’t let him know why you were busy. Let him make some wild guesses.
If he is asking you out through text, then decline it by saying that you have already made some plan with someone. You can also give out hints about what you feel for the guy, but remember to keep up the mystery. Here are 25 other clever ways to make a guy feel jealous and draw his attention towards you.

1. Looking good
There shouldn’t be any specific occasion to look beautiful or to take care of yourself. Take time to get all dressed up when you are going out. If you are not much of a makeup person, then try putting on some makeup for a change. Don’t just wear anything that you lay your hand on instead select the dress that will define your curves better. Put in some effort to change your hairstyle as well. All these changes won’t go unnoticed. Your husband will definitely notice the change and will ask you questions about the change.
Don’t give out any details, just smile mysteriously. It is enough to make him jealous and he will start giving more attention to you in order to figure out what’s going on in your life. Isn’t it super cute? After being married for so long, if you see that your husband is getting possessive about you won’t you feel good about it? You know that you are doing it for your husband, but why let the cat out of the hat so early. Enjoy all the attention that he is showering on you and then when you feel that things are taking a turn, blurt out the truth.
2. Have fun
If you haven’t gone out with your friends for a long time, then it is high time that you ignore your boyfriend or husband and go out on a dinner date with your friends. Have loads of fun and click pictures randomly so that you can show them to your guy. Let them know how much fun it was to catch up with old friends. Keep smiling thinking about the conversation you had with your friends. It will attract him towards you in an organic way. When you ignore your guy a bit, it not only makes him jealous, but also he will try to barge into the space that he thought was reserved for him only. Your partner would love to have you all to himself and would even detest the idea of sharing your time with anybody.
3. Make his guy friends appreciate you
When you are around your guy's friend circle, then try to do something that will make his friends go gaga over you. When his friends will start appreciating or complimenting you, he will start feeling jealous or possessive about you. Don’t do anything overtly flirty, but just be your best self in front of his friends and the rest will be taken care of by his friends. Act innocent, as if you haven’t done anything intentionally, and you will not be in any kind of trouble with your guy.
4. Keep details to yourself
You must have realized by now that you give out more details than asked for. It ultimately turns against you because in no time your boyfriend or husband is bored by the details and they start yawning. This time turn the table around. If your guy asks for some details, reply vaguely. Keep your conversation sweet and short. He will look confused because he is trying to figure out the sudden change in you. This way, you will be able to maintain a mystery around you. Let his mind wander around in the wild to collect the details. Your job is done. You wanted to make your guy jealous and get his attention, and you have done that.
5. Talk about your ex to make him jealous
People can become complacent without a little competition. This is especially true for long-term relationships. Your guy believes that you cannot think beyond him, and so he has stopped taking out time for you. Give him a reality check. Start talking about your ex and how he used to treat you. Remember not to overdo the act. Otherwise, it might backfire you and ruin your relationship once and for all. Do it in the right way and you will surely make your guy feel jealous!
6. Laugh a lot with your guy friends
If you and your boyfriend are in a party, then this option is the best way to make your guy jealous about you. You just have to spend more time with your guy friends rather than clinging on to your guy. You can click pictures by hugging them or you can pose with them for photographs. Will you be able to digest the fact that your guy is giving more importance to other girls when you are also there in the same party? The answer is a big no, we all know that. So, don’t you think that the same law applies to your guy as well? Try the trick.
7. Make your guy jealous by ignoring his calls
When your guy is calling you, don’t jump on to receive the call instantly. Ignore first few calls, if he still calls after some time, then pick up the phone and pretend to be too busy. But, remember to land up like a dream when you meet him in person the next time. Mesmerize him with your beauty, so that he forgets what happened earlier. He won’t bring up the mundane topic of why you didn’t pick up the phone and spoil the date.
8. Be a natural flirt to make your guy jealous
Don’t pretend to flirt or don’t make too much effort to flirt with your guy's friends, otherwise, he will sense the intention behind your act. Try to be natural and keep it subtle enough to make him notice of what you are doing without overdoing it.
9. Go out with a young guy
If you are married for a long time now and your husband is not treating you like the way he used to when you were newly-wed. Then it is high time you take control of the situation. Go out on a date with some young guy to make him jealous. Your husband wouldn’t love the idea of his wife hanging out with a young guy. He will definitely change his stance towards you and start taking care of your needs all of a sudden.
10. Be visible
You know he will be coming over to pick you up from office, so ask one of your guy friends to hang out with you. When you notice your guy’s car coming, just wrap your arm around your colleagues while talking casually to make your guy jealous. Your guy will definitely take notice of this small gesture and would immediately start questioning you. Ignore his questions and ask him to stop acting like a jealous boyfriend.
11. Befriend his enemy
If you know whom your guy hates the most, then you shouldn’t miss out on the opportunity to make him jealous by sharing a smile with him. Stand little close to the guy whom your boyfriend literally hates and talk to him. This will make him jealous and he would love to grab your attention back.

12. Post your pictures on social media
Why not make use of the social media platform to show your guy that you can have fun without him as well and make him jealous? Your guy seems to have forgotten that your life can be exciting even without him and how popular you are among your friends. So, these pictures will give him a subtle reminder about it and when he will see you all smiles with other friends, he is bound to get jealous.
13. Childhood friend can do the trick
When you are trying to make your guy feel jealous, then you can start talking about your childhood friend more. How you two used to behave when you were young and what all you both have done together. Your escapades will surely haunt him down and he will start getting a little territorial about you. He might not show it, but your guy will get jealous about it.
14. Text your ex
He will say that he doesn’t care about your past, but deep inside he is quite insecure and jealous about your ex-boyfriend. So, if he sees that you are texting your ex, he will feel jealous, regardless of the message that you sent out.
15. Be indifferent when he flirts
If you see him flirting with other girls, don’t react. Just stay calm and enjoy. He won’t be able to digest this reaction and would start wondering why you are indifferent towards his moves. He will start feeling neglected and would come back running to you. This is a great way of making him jealous. (But don't act so indifferent that he'll think your relationship isn't working.)
16. Compare your guy with a celebrity
Talk about a hot celebrity in detail to your guy. He won’t appreciate the fact that you are fond of some other guy, even if it is a celebrity.
17. Share happy memories of you and other guy friends
Tell him about how much fun you and your other guy friends have and how much you enjoy their company. Your guy will feel jealous listening about your fun times because you are telling him indirectly that he is not fun to hang out. He will start putting in a lot of effort to win you back.
18. Dress up while going out with others
Take more time in getting ready when you are going out with others. Your guy will see how much effort you are putting in to get the perfect look, but when you are going out with him, just wear anything that you lay your hand on. Your action will not go unnoticed and he will start feeling jealous and ignored at the same time. He will crave for your attention and would like you to invest as much time while going out you.
19. Just leave the conversation in the middle
When you are in the middle of the conversation just stand up and get going, pretend as if you remembered something that is more important than this conversation. Your guy will feel jealous because something else is more important to you than him.
20. Let your friend speak on your behalf
Make one of your friends disclose your popularity among other men to your guy while you ask them to stop the conversation. Stage this act carefully. Don’t let him sense anything suspicious. You should act like as if that’s normal, making him feel jealous.
21. Try not to be the first one to ping
Even if you feel the urge to contact him, don’t do that. Hold back your thoughts and let him make the first move. Let him wonder whether you had a great time with him or not. If he is asking you the same question in his text, then don’t give out a direct answer. Play around a bit before replying something positive.
22. Be sweet to him
Be extremely sweet and nice when you are with him and then stop it right there. Again be available to him when you see him really making an effort to grab your attention. It will make your guy feel jealous because he wants to be with you all the time but he is not getting the scope to do so.
23. Gift yourself and then pretend
Send a lovely bouquet of flower to yourself in his presence and act as if you don’t have any idea who the sender is. Act surprised to make your guy feel jealous.
24. Pursue your hobby
Make sure you spend less time with him and give more time to your hobby. If you are in a long relationship, then he is used to your attention, but all of a sudden when something else becomes more important than you, then he won’t be able to take it lightly.
25. Don’t give in to last minute plans
If he is calling you for some last-minute plan, then don’t give in to the idea. Let him know that you have better plans for yourself. Making yourself available for him always will not help you in any way. So become unavailable for him. Make him work hard to get you on board.
Always remember that though making your guy feel jealous can be fun, but at the same time, it can be risky too. Don’t drag it too much. Keep in mind that you are only acting out because you want to make him feel jealous and realize your actual worth.
