To stop being desperate, you have to end the pattern of inaccurate, negative beliefs about yourself. You need to begin to believe that you have something wonderful to offer and that the person you're "meant" to be with is actually out there. In other words, you need to begin to re-train your brain.
Stay independent while you're in a relationship by keeping up with your hobbies and friendships, and give him the space to be independent too. Compliment him to show that you appreciate the things he does for you, and keep flirting with him to show him you're still interested.
Getting bent out of shape over the fact that they're spending time with other people is a sign that you're getting clingy. It's a huge mistake to give in to these feelings and give your partner a hard time about the time they spend with others. It just makes you look (and feel) controlling and unattractive to them.
We can become desperate when things seem out of our control — our finances, our health, our relationships. Prolonged, close confinement and isolation from others can be a debilitating combination during times of stress and worry. Worry and fear can become a monster, taking on a life of their own.
The bottom line. Attention-seeking behavior may stem from jealousy, low self-esteem, loneliness, or as a result of a personality disorder. If you notice this behavior in you or someone else, a mental health professional can provide diagnosis and treatment options.
However, getting someone to like you back means trying not to be annoying, which can be hard when you like someone so much. To talk to your crush without being too clingy, try asking them questions about their life, avoiding double texting, and understanding if they aren't in the mood to talk.
Another positive sign that a male friend likes you is if he smiles at you a lot. For example, if this guy is a shy person, but whenever he sees you, a smile lights upon his face or constantly maintains eye contact, this is to hint that he is into you and wants to be more than just a casual friend.
How do you turn the tables and make him chase you?
If you want a guy to chase you, try not to be an open book and don't tell him everything about yourself at the beginning. Whenever you are out on a date with him, avoid giving too much information. Don't lie about your life, but you also do not have to tell him everything.
