The way to a guy’s heart is through his hobbies. Find out what he’s passionate about, and if you really love him, get into it too.If I meet a girl who can talk video games, guitar, cooking, or good books, it’s a huge turn-on.And lots of guys like to teach, so if you can get hands-on with learning it, I’m telling you, you’ll get there.
