Sort of look designed to cheer him? (4-6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

come-hither

Here is my best explanation:

'sort of look' is the definition.

(a come-hither look displays romantic interest)

'designed to cheer him?' is the subsidiary indication.

'designed' is an anagram indicator (designed with the letters).

'to'+'cheer'+'him'='tocheerhim'

'tocheerhim' with letters rearranged gives 'comehither'.

(Other definitions for come-hither that I've seen before include "Coquettish" and "Alluring".)
