Attracting Women

These signs mean that you’re trapped in the friend zone…

The friend zone is perhaps the last place that you will want to get stuck in when relationships are concerned.

But the thing is a lot of guys don’t seem to have even the slightest inkling if they’re trapped in the friend zone or not.

If you’re looking to keep yourself from getting stuck in the friend zone anytime soon, here are some key signs that you should look out for…

She always introduces you as a “friend.”

Now while being close friends with the woman you’re really attracted to is one of the foundations of establishing a romantic relationship with her, always being introduced as a “friend” already gives you an idea how she sees you in her life.

You can correct this situation by directly telling the woman you like that you’d want to be more than friends with her to give her the notion that you’re a potential boyfriend material.

She talks about her exes and crushes when you’re together.

Although listening attentively to a woman is a priority when it comes to making a connection with her, you know you’re in the friend zone when she always talks about her exes, crushes and other relationship matters when the both of you are talking.

While this is a sign that she is comfortable enough to open up to you, you must also tell her that you’re not in it for being just friends, but also for being more than friends. Or else you’ll be simply a “shoulder to cry on” for her.

She always asks you to go shopping with her.

Even if going shopping with her means that you’re already spending time with each other, it’s another story if she just lets you accompany her to help her pick clothes and accessories. This is supposed to be a job for one of her girlfriends and not yours.

Keep in mind to take her someplace else other than shopping when she asks you. And make it a point to be an awesome date, too.

She always asks you to pick her up.

Now while it’s alright to do this once or twice, it’s definitely another story if you always find yourself picking her up at 3 AM because she is so wasted to drive.

Draw the line between being just a friend and a potential romantic interest to really hit the message home.

Keep these tips in mind next time you're going on a first date!

Keep these tips in mind next time you’re going on a first date!

Unlike what a lot of so-called “dating gurus” are saying, acing a first date isn’t something that you can pull off immediately.

There are key factors that you should take note of to really wow the woman you’re going out with and easily convince her to have another date with you soon.

So if you’re looking to take your chances of acing your next first date, here are some important tips that you should keep in mind…

Get her in on the planning.

If you’re anything like most guys, chances are you think that all of the planning and organizing of a first date should be your responsibility.

However, you’re already missing out on a number of opportunities to impress the woman you’re going on a date with if you have this mindset.

Besides having an idea of the stuff that she likes, you will also make her feel that you’re really interested in her, which easily scores you a lot of brownie points in her book while at it.

Keep a close eye on your grooming.

Sure this may sound simplistic, but not making it a point to keep a close eye on your grooming for a first date will already lead to disaster before you know it.

This is because women are very particular with how a man looks and smells. If you don’t make the cut, she’s just going to have a surge of stress hormones in her body that won’t raise her anxiety levels, but also make her feel impatient in the process.

Just imagine how your first date will turn out when this happens.

(Here are some key grooming tips that will surely get you on the right track.)

Switch your mobile phone off.

The woman you’re going on a first date with will simply feel that she’s boring you to death if you check out your phone every couple of minutes.

Keep in mind that your texts, voice mails, status updates and tweets can wait for later. This also applies to other gadgets that you may have like tablets and mp3 players.

Listen to her attentively.

Always remember to listen to her as closely as you can when you manage to engage her in a meaningful conversation.

Besides getting to know her better, you’ll also promote a boost in positive hormones in her body, which will make her feel comfortable, relaxed and excited.

And just imagine what will happen when she starts to associate these feelings with you…

Keep these first date pointers in mind to really wow her!

Unlike what a lot of so-called “dating gurus” are saying, making a first date a complete success isn’t about luck.

It actually involves a bit of planning to really give the woman you’re going on a date with an awesome time.

So if you’re looking to wow her the next time you’re on a first date, here are a few key pointers that you should keep in mind…

Let her be involved in the planning.

If you’re anything like most men, you probably think that handling the planning and organizing of a first date should be your job.

But the thing is you’re actually missing out on a lot of opportunities to give the woman you’re taking on a date with an awesome time.

Letting her in on the action helps you know key factors like the places she likes to go, her favorite food and beverage picks as well as some other attributes.

You’re sure to start things off on the right track when you do this.

Keep a close eye on your grooming.

Sure this may sound really simplistic, but how you look and smell can easily make or break your chances in terms of giving a woman an amazing time during your first date.

See, your overall appearance is what she will notice first and if it’s not up to par with her taste then you’re just going to be disappointed sooner or later with how your date will turn out.

Getting the job done isn’t complicated, too. Here are a few useful grooming tips that you should take note of.

Have a friendly mindset.

Now while a first date could be a stepping stone to a romantic relationship, thinking that you should already charm her romantically when you take her out for the first time will just backfire.

This is because women think of first dates as social situations where they can meet new friends. Kicking things off with your romantic charms right off the bat will just turn her off.

Talk about trivial stuff.

Getting a meaningful conversation is key when it comes to establishing a connection with a woman on your first date.

Make it a point to talk about trivial things to get one going. The simpler, the better.

Simply asking your date what her favorite cartoon character is or perhaps the TV show that she always tuned in to will already do the trick.

Keep these pointers in mind before you go on a date!

Keep these pointers in mind before you go on a date!

I’m pretty sure that giving the woman you’re on a date with the right impression is a key priority in your checklist.

And one of the ways to pull this off is making sure that your grooming is up to par.

It’s not that tricky to imagine what your date’s reaction would be – and how the whole thing will turn out – if you showed up as if you just got out of bed, too.

But the thing is getting the job done is more than just taking a quick shower and putting on nice clothes. Make sure you follow along to find out more…

Pay close attention to your face.

I’ve learned during my extensive research into the female psychology that women tend to first notice a guy’s face in a social situation.

And not keeping a close eye on your face in your grooming checklist can easily break your chances during a date.

Besides making it a point to get rid of excess facial hair, keeping your locks in a clean and stylish yet comfortably proper fashion is a must as well.

Your teeth need TLC.

Apart from being one of the most visible physical attributes that you have, the shape your teeth are in also have a big effect to a woman you’re going out with.

If they’re dirty and just plain nasty, she’s immediately going to feel that you’re irresponsible and become rather anxious in the process.

Your breath is also going to be on the line when you don’t take care of your teeth properly, too.

Slap on some deodorant.

Sure you may be not as sweaty compared to other men, but it’s really smart to use a liberal amount of deodorant when you’re going through your grooming checklist.

Keep in mind to use a deodorant that doesn’t have a strong and pronounced smell while at it since it can be a turn-off for her. Go for something with a neutral musky and citrusy scent.

Plan your getup properly.

Your choice of clothes and shoes play a key role not just in your overall grooming, but also in your confidence levels.

Now while you may be wearing the nicest outfit for your date, but if you don’t feel comfortable in it the result will just be the opposite.

Just remember to prioritize comfort over style when you choose your footwear and clothes and you’ll be on the right track.
