The northwest is chock-full of broody vampire boys just waiting to fall in love with their dinner you!

How to achieve in the real world: If you can’t convince your parents to move, run away! You won’t need them once you’re engaged to the 150-year-old vampire no doubt waiting for you in Forks.

Books that totally prove our tip: The Twilight series

2) Be klutzy!

How to achieve in the real world: Deliberately trip into your crush’s arms. If he drops you, it’s ok — his best friend will come over to help you, look into your eyes, and BAM, new boyfriend!

Books that totally prove our tip: The Twilight series, Fruits Basket, Sailor Moon

3) Survive the Hunger Games!

No boy is going to look twice at a corpse! Also, surviving gives you an automatic love triangle!

How to achieve in the real world: If there’s no chance your country will turn into a reality TV obsessed totalitarian state, trick your friends and crush into going camping with you, then activate the electrical fence around your cabin and reveal you’re all going to duke it out until Jake loves you.

Books that totally prove our tip: The Hunger Games trilogy, Battle Royale

4) Go to boarding school!

5) Be on opposite sides of a war!

Forbidden fruit is the best fruit! Nothing get’s a man’s blood pumping like being with an enemy agent!

How to achieve in the real world: Spend years sending your crush cryptic messages about how he was “Born to command the Light and wipe out the Darkness.” When he cracks and begins murdering everyone he thinks is a Demon, present yourself as a sexy-yet-innocent hellion and watch the sparks fly!

Books that totally prove our tip: Crown Duel, Decoy Princess, Princess At Sea, the Iron Fey series, Unearthly, Firelight, the Fallen series, the Vampire Knight series, the Angelfire series
