😵😯😚 We’re all probably a little guilty for flexing on the ‘gram from time to time. Who can blame you? Instagram is such a visually striking social media platform, it’s hard not to be impressed by some of the content out there. If you’re looking to boost the quality of your own content so you can impress a girl or two, you’re in luck! There are actually plenty of things you can do to take your profile to the next level. To help you do it, we’ve put together a list of tips and strategies you can use to capture her attention and keep her coming back for more.

1 of 14:
Come up with a strong bio.

  1. It’s one of the first thing she’ll see on your profile. Keep your bio short and snappy, but make sure it gives her an idea of who you are and what you’re into almost immediately. If she’s into similar things, or if she admires the stuff you do, she might be impressed right away. Pepper in a few emojis to help liven things up as well, but don’t go overboard with it or you might come off as immature.[1]
    • For instance, you could have a bio like, "Vegan for the animals. Gym freak. Music lover. Foodie."
    • You could also have one like, "Family first" and a prayer emoji, and then "Martial artist" with a boxing glove emoji.
    • If you're a guy, try having a girl read over your bio—they'll have a better idea of how other women will see your bio![2]

Make your profile pic a good one.

Post fun and interesting content.

  1. Make your page a cool place to visit. You can try posting pictures of beautiful landscapes, cute animals, as well as yourself. Also try to include flattering photos that show off your best features and capture you doing different activities, such as working, hitting the gym, partying, and hanging out with friends and family. Capturing a wide variety of images from your life will make you look more well-rounded, interesting, and, well, impressive![4]
    • For instance, what girl doesn’t love puppies? If you have a dog, be sure to post a bunch of pics of your pooch.
    • Avoid shirtless bathroom mirror selfies. It could make you look cocky or arrogant, which may drive a girl away from your profile.

Add killer captions.

  1. Flex your clever and witty muscles. Just like with Instagram bios, short and sweet is the way to go. Try to come up with something relevant to the picture that adds an extra element and energy to it. It can be smooth and confident, cute and silly, or a little snarky. Just add a little more attitude to capture her attention.[6]
    • For instance, the caption for a shirtless beach pic could be something like, "Life’s a beach, I’m just playing in the sand."
    • You could also try a funny quote like, "There’s no doubt about it, I’m ready to get hurt again. - Michael Scott" under a photo of yourself.

Post comments that make her respond.

  1. Ask questions or try teasing her to get her to reply. If you’re trying to engage with a girl, commenting on one of her posts is a great way to do it. Try framing your comments as questions or in a way that would make her want to respond to you.[11]
    • For instance, if she posts a picture of one of her cats, you could comment, "Aww that’s so cute. Is that your cat?"
    • If she posts a selfie, you could try, "So beautiful. You’ve got some killer photo skills!"
    • You could also try, "There’s no way you ate that whole thing" on a post of one of her meals.

11 of 14:
Respond to her stories.

  1. It can be a more natural way to start a conversation. One of the advantages of responding to stories is that your message is sent directly to her inbox rather than on her profile like a public comment. If she posts something to her story that seems like you could respond to it, go for it! It can be a short little exchange, but it may also blossom into a full conversation.[12]
    • If she posts a picture of her food to her stories, you could respond with something like, "Looks delicious, did you make that?"
    • If she’s into fitness and posts one of her workouts to her stories, you could respond with emojis of arms flexing or something like, "Get it!" She may like and respond to your messages.

Keep your DMs fun and playful.

13 of 14:
Pick a memorable username.

  1. It’ll make it easier for her to find and tag you. Your username, a.k.a. your handle, is that one-word lower case name next to your "@" symbol. Even if you already made one, you can customize it anytime you want! It can be up to 30 characters long, so craft a username that includes your own name or choose one that reflects your personality. Make it easy to remember, too.[14]
    • For instance, if your name is Chris Smith, you could try for "@chris_smith1995." If you’re super into playing music, you could have one like, "@chrismusiclover."
    • Try to avoid random or hard-to-remember usernames like "@chris546897."

      • Try not to misrepresent yourself or a girl may see right through it. For instance, if you claim to be super into snowboarding, but you’ve never gone snowboarding before, it could make you look fake.
