Use these tips on making a guy jealous if you feel like your relationship has no life or if you feel unwanted by your new boyfriend. If you want the magic of romance and chase in the relationship or if you want him to get more sexually attracted to you, you need to let him see that other guys treat you better, and that you’re getting a lot of attention from other guys too.
#1 Have a great life without him. If he cancels a date or makes any last minute plans, tell him you’re busy and hang out with your own friends. And when he calls you while you’re out with your own friends, don’t hang up after saying goodbye. Instead leave the phone on the table and let him overhear your fun conversations and bristle with rage for not being able to have a fun time with you.
#2 Speak highly of your ex. Bring some competition into the air by letting him know how great your ex was and how well he treated you so you can set a benchmark for him to beat. [Read: Tips to talk about past relationships the right way]
#3 Compliment other guys. If your guy doesn’t treat you well, compliment any guy friend for the smallest of gestures and talk about how sweet he is with your boyfriend. Your boyfriend will want the same attention too.
#4 Get touchy feely with your guy friends. Laugh a lot with your guy friends, play along with them and tease them. Get especially touchy feely while playfully posing for a photo or hugging goodbye in front of your man.
#5 Flirt on facebook. Getting a lot of attention on facebook from other guys could make your new boyfriend realize how desirable and wanted you are by everyone else.
#6 Ignore his calls now and then. Pretend like you’re busy and make him miss you. But look gorgeous every time you see him. He’ll be too mesmerized to stay angry, and yet, he’ll crave for you. [Read: Why do guys hate talking over the phone?]
#7 Let him know you’re getting attention. If another guy asks you out or flirts with you, let your new man know all about it. It’ll make him jealous, and it’ll also make him work hard to woo you and make you fall in love with him first. [Read: How to get any guy’s attention in no time]
DATING A GUY WHO’S TAKEN YOU FOR GRANTED

If your boyfriend only answers in monosyllables or treats you like a guy friend, or even if he has started to ignore you recently, here are a few things you can do to make him jealous and miss your presence.
#1 Get a guy best friend. Guy best friends are never good news for boyfriends. Boyfriends hate them. By getting a guy best friend, it’ll make your man hate your new BFF and make him feel insecure at the same time. [Read: Guy best friends are nothing but trouble]
#2 Appear mysterious. Don’t reveal too much about your plans to your boyfriend. Be vague in your answers and avoid having long conversations with him until he takes an interest in spending time with you.
#3 Hog the attention. Have a lot of fun with other guys, especially when you see your boyfriend walking towards you from a distance. And even if he comes close, just wave out to him and have a fun time with your own friends. If he can’t give you preferential treatment, why should you?!
#4 Be a subtle flirter. Flirt with other guys, but don’t overdo it. He may realize that you’re only trying to make him jealous if you overdo it. Or worse, he may think you’re a horny tramp. [Read: How to flirt subtly with a guy]
#5 Go out on a date. Go out for dinner with a cute guy, and even if your boyfriend asks about it, just tell him the truth like it’s no big deal. If your boyfriend doesn’t want to take you out, why is it a bad thing if some other guy wants to take you out?
#6 Let him know you don’t need him. Guys like being depended on. But behave like you don’t need him around because you have a lot of guy friends who can help you anyway. Ask your boyfriend for his help. But if he can’t help you, get another cute guy to help you and tell your boyfriend about how much fun you had with the other guy.
