Dating Tips

Steer clear from the friend zone with these tips!

If you’re anything like most guys, it’s either you experienced getting stuck in the friend zone or very much afraid of being so. But the thing is there are simple pointers you need to keep in mind to avoid getting trapped in it.

Let me explain what I mean…

Getting stuck in the friendzone is definitely one of the most awkward experiences that you’ll ever go through.

However, unlike what most men tend to mistakenly believe, falling in the friendzone trap doesn’t just happen.

It is actually the result of the choices that you made as well as the decisions that you went for as you’re building a relationship with a woman.

And what’s really interesting is there are key reasons why a lot of men tend to get themselves stuck in the friendzone. Make sure follow along to find out what these are…

You don’t tell her you have romantic intentions for her.

Letting a woman know that you’re looking to have a romantic relationship with her is a priority if you want to do just that.

Come to think of it. How does she know that you want to be closer with her in a more romantic way if you don’t tell her in the first place? Tell her straight up if you’re looking to avoid the friend zone!

You can tell her this using a simple text message, a card with flowers or some other nice gesture that you usually do. You can even tell her while you’re doing something that you two like.

Just keep in mind to do it sweet and simple. Complicating things will only result to the opposite.

You spoil her. A lot.

Say a woman you like sends you a text message at 2 in the morning asking for a ride to some place or a bite of her favorite pizza, what would you do?

Now while doing this once or twice is perfectly fine, you’re definitely on your way to being friendzoned if you make it a habit.

You’re just unconsciously telling her that you’re a chump when you do this. And women don’t like chumps.

You make her feel that you’re the nicest guy in the universe.

Now while I am not saying that being nice is an attribute that you should check off your checklist when it comes to building a romantic relationship with a woman, being too nice is just going to be a disaster sooner or later.

Aside from making a woman feel that she can easily manipulate you (just imagine how that will turn out), she will also get the notion that you’re not that exciting to be her love interest.

Make it a point to turn down the nice factor down a notch and you’re good to go. Be the boy next door, but not the doormat.

Still can’t figure out if she is really having a great time on your first date?

So here’s the thing. You’re on a first date with a woman you’ve got your eye on for a long time now and you’d like to ace the whole thing. But the thing is you still can’t tell if she’s really having a grand time with you.

And just to tell you the awful truth, there’s no such thing as making a woman fall for you as soon as you take her out on a date like a number of so-called “dating gurus” are saying. Sure there are key dating factors that can help you pull it off, but there’s no secret technique that gets the job done like magic.

However, there are a few signs that you can keep an eye out on to determine if she is really enjoying herself during your date. And if you’re looking to boost your chances the next time you’re taking a woman out, make sure you read on…

You will notice she isn’t taking regular glances at her watch or mobile phone.

A woman who isn’t concerned about stretching the time when it comes to your first date is definitely enjoying the whole thing. When you don’t hear her say “it’s late” or perhaps “I’ve got to get up early tomorrow” constantly, then it’s a sign she’s willing to be with you for a longer time.

Remember to maintain her interest by keeping the mood light and easy and she won’t find it tough to decide that you need to have a second date soon.

You will notice she is actively participating in the exchange of ideas.

You know you’re doing a good job during your first date when she is not talking in an awkward way, as if she’s conversing in a reserved manner. This just means that she’s out of her comfort zone and is willing to mingle with you more.

Apart from listening to her intently to gather a few ideas you can use to dazzle her even more, make sure you add meaningful ideas yourself during your discussion. Avoid topics that can be rather sensitive like religion, politics and other subjects that are not appropriate to talk about during a first date.

You will notice she is giving you her utmost attention.

A woman who’s paying more attention to her phone instead of having a meaningful conversation with you during your first date is rather bored. This means that you need to spice things up fast or else you will blow your chances of acing that date sooner than you think.

It’s either you need to look for another topic to discuss about or perhaps change the mood of the date to a lighter one by telling a joke or sharing an amusing anecdote. Make her feel that you’re fun to be with and it’ll be easier to keep her attention.

So you’re looking to ace that first date…

Unlike what a lot of guys mistakenly think, convincing a woman to go on a second date with you isn’t about getting lucky.

It’s rather about knowing a few tricks to easily boost your chances of taking her out again. So if you’re looking to finally land that second date you’ve always wished for, here are a few tips to keep in mind…

Remember you’re not on a booze run.

Although it’s alright to have a drink or two on your date, simply having too much will just lead to disaster. Some guys think that downing a lot of their drink of choice will make them more confident on their date.

Sadly, this is not true. It will just make you act erratic, talk gibberish and eventually blow your chances of landing another date with a woman. Just to be safe, stick to water, juice or cola.

Pick the most trivial topics to break the ice.

Breaking the ice properly is a good way to make a woman feel more comfortable being with you. And unless you make her feel just that, chances are she won’t be that excited to go out with you again no matter how hard you try.

It’s not that tough to actually get a great conversation going when you’re on a date. You only have to do one thing a lot of guys tend to overlook when they’re going out with a woman: talking casually. Make it a point to kick things off with topics that are fun to talk about and you’re sure to be off on a good start.

Steer clear from politics, religion and other things that can prevent your date from really opening up to you. If you feel that she’s not that receptive to you anymore, talk about something else or get back to a topic that she likes.

Look and smell like a million bucks.

Now while I don’t mean this as something offensive, how you look and smell can make or break your chances of scoring a second date with a woman you’ve got your eyes on. Unless you make your date feel that you’ve exerted a lot of effort to look and smell nice, chances are she won’t be that too eager to go out with you again.

See, grooming is one of the key elements women use as a standard if a guy deserves to have a second date with them. Besides being a sign of how they take care of themselves, it also gives women a preview of how healthy a man is.

Interestingly, taking regular showers, brushing and flossing frequently as well as using deodorant also helps boost the production and release of feel-good hormones in the body that make you feel more comfortable and confident during your date.

Always keep clear from these crucial dating mistakes!

If you’re anything like most men, you probably think that acing a first date is as easy as looking like a movie star. A few spritzes of an expensive cologne also helps boost your chances of doing just that as well.

However, having a successful date is more than just looking and smelling great. It is also avoiding making these mistakes that a lot of guys don’t even have the slightest clue they are doing them already.

You hog the spotlight.

Perhaps one of the biggest mistakes a lot of guys make when they’re out with a woman is not listening intently to them when they are engaged in a conversation. Apart from giving them the notion that you are interested in their ideas and feelings, you are also making them feel anxious and impatient.

See, listening is one way to establish trust with your date. Unless you make a woman feel that she can easily open up to you, chances are she won’t be trusting you anytime soon, which also means that it’s game over when it comes to your date.

Moreover, besides blowing your chances of making your date successful, you won’t also get to know the woman you’re out with better that can easily help you plan your next strategy to make her fall for you.

You’re not listening to her.

Not listening attentively to your date is one thing and talking too much is another. Simply not giving the woman you’re out with the chance to share her ideas easily turns her off.

This is because your date will think that you are self-centered and rather difficult to engage in a discussion with. And when this happens, your chances of earning her trust are going to be bleak.

Keep in mind to make the conversation mostly about your date and you’ll be just fine. Make it a point to find out a few interesting things about the woman you’re out with like her favorite fruit or movie and the discussion will flow smoothly.

You don’t give her a hint of mystery.

Women like a bit of mystery when it comes to their dates. Simply opening yourself up to a woman as soon as you engage in a discussion is definitely a no-no because she will think you’re boring since you’ve already bared it all.

Have a few mysterious details here and there to intrigue her and you’ll pull off a successful date in no time.

Being late…which is a dating mortal sin.

Showing up late on a first date is perhaps the biggest mistake you’ll ever make. She will immediately have the wrong notion about you, too. And you don’t want that to happen, right?
