It seems to be a trend.  According to People, after Sergeant Scott Moore of the Marines invited Friends With Benefits star Mila Kunis to the Marine Corps Ball, a female Marine decided to follow suit and give it a try with Justin Timberlake.  Kelsey De Santis, a Virginia-based Marine, made her own YouTube video, asking Timberlake out to her own Marine Corps Ball, November 12.  She added a little catch at the end: “…if you can’t go, all I can say is cry me a river.”  Justin has not yet responded.

What are some ways to get your longtime crush to notice you?

Sometimes the hardest part about starting a relationship is actually catching your crush’s attention. Cupid has some advice for you:

Steal the show: Look awesome. No one can resist an exquisite physical appearance. Come on, personality is great, but let’s be honest, what do they see first?

Eye contact: Whenever you see that it’s appropriate, look your crush dead in the eye. For one, it shows confidence. Secondly, it’s the obvious: your crush is bound to notice you if there’s some eye contact! Just don’t make it awkward

Converse: Strike up a neutral conversation about an easy and relevant topic. Conversation can take a turn anywhere, and it’s fun to see where it goes. Put your nerves in the back seat, and just go for it!
