Stop with the passive "I don't know." or "I don't care, what do you want to do?" First of all, it's annoying. Take charge! Plan something for once! Prove to me you're interesting and worth my time.

7. Don't be clingy or desperate

Your babe is the, I know. But you know you don't need them to enjoy yourself, so go enjoy yourself! This is (most importantly) really healthy for you. But it also makes your babe think about you when you're not with him, which is just an added bonus!

10. @ them on Twitter

Tag your babe in memes, photos, and videos on Twitter, Instagram, and/or Facebook. Ya know, casually drop their username in a post that makes you think of them or is related to an inside joke of yours.

11. Flirt with others

Never put all your eggs in one basket. Get out there, have a good time. You'll be reminded that you are desirable to others, which will give you a little confidence boost when you're going after your babe. It will also remind your babe that you've got options, which is always a good thing.

12. The classic "casual touch"

Sit next to them, bump knees. Walk next to them, brush hands. Laugh next to them, touch their arm. You know how it goes.

13. Exchange looks
