Relationship Tips

Are you making these mistakes that can get you trapped in the friend zone?

Are you making these mistakes that can get you trapped in the friend zone?

So here’s the situation…

You’ve been friends with a woman you really like and you’re hoping to take your relationship to a whole new level.

But the thing is she sees you more of a friend than a potential romantic interest.

And you’re in danger of getting stuck in the friend zone if you don’t fix this problem as soon as possible.

Now while getting trapped in the friend zone may be one of the most embarrassing and awkward experiences you can ever go through, avoiding the whole thing isn’t that complicated, though.

Make sure you follow along to learn a few useful pointers to keep in mind I’ve learned during my extensive research into the female psychology that will help you steer clear of the friend zone…

You don’t tell her of your true feelings.

Unlike what you see in the movies where the female love interest seems to realize at the end that his male counterpart is in love with her, you’ve got to confess your true feelings to her or else nothing will happen.

Unless the woman you’re attracted to is a mind reader, of course.

Now while there’s a bit of risk involved here because it’s possible that she may reject you, it’s better to fess up than forever regretting that you didn’t tell her at all.

What’s even more interesting is there’s a possibility that she likes you, too.

You give in to whatever she wants.

I’ve learned during my extensive research into the female psychology that women tend to see guys who easily give in to what they want more as a go-to guy than potential romance.

Sure you can earn a few brownie points when you give her favors, but she’ll just end up seeing you as a reliable friend – or worse, like a brother – when you treat her like this.

You have never asked her out.

Asking a woman on a date basically gives her the notion that you’re interested in her in a romantic way.

Although you may be already giving her cues that you’d like to go out with her, nothing beats asking her straight.

There’s the risk of being rejected here, too, but it’s still much better than staying mum and thinking about the things that could have happened if you just asked her out.

(Here’s a useful pointer to have up your sleeve that will help you ace that first date, too.)

You get discouraged too quickly.

So you’ve already asked her out, you say? And she said no?

Well, don’t give up already!

Give it another try to really make her feel that you’ve got a special place for her in your heart, but make sure you give it time or else she’ll think of you as a creep.

Does she think of you as "just a friend?"

Does she think of you as “just a friend?”

Getting trapped in the friend zone is no doubt one of the most awkward experiences that you can go through as a guy.

Besides being very embarrassing, it’s also going to ruin your chances of establishing a romantic relationship with a woman you’ve got your eye on.

But the thing is I’ve come across some key mistakes during my extensive research into the female psychology that will easily make you fall into the friend zone without even knowing it.

Make sure you read on to get the lowdown on them…

Not confessing up to her.

One of the biggest mistakes that a lot of guys tend to overlook is not confessing up to the woman they’re attracted to of their true feelings for them.

Come to think of it. How would she have an idea that you’re looking to take your relationship with her to a new level if she doesn’t even know how you really feel?

Sure there is the possibility that she may reject you, but it’s better to know the bitter truth than not knowing how she feels about you at all.

You don’t ask her out on a date.

A woman will have the mindset that you’re just a friend if you don’t make a move.

One of the smartest ways to start making her think that you’re not just looking to be friends with her is asking her out on a date.

And don’t just settle for “friendly” stuff like hanging out in the park or playing a video game together.

Pull out all the stops on your first date to really get the message across.

You’re her therapist for guy problems.

Although lending an ear when she’s opening up to you earns you brownie points, simply giving her the notion that you’re her shrink when it comes to guy problems and similar issues is another story.

Besides making her think that she can tell you anything she likes, which is basically the job of a friend, you’re also ruining your chances of getting romantic with her because she knows that you already know her secrets when it comes to men.

Giving up immediately.

Most guys tend to get discouraged immediately when they get rejected the first time.

I know getting rejected can be rather frustrating, but perseverance does have its rewards. Remember to regroup and dazzle her using a different strategy all over again.

First date mistakes you should keep clear of!

First date mistakes you should keep clear of!

Unlike what a lot of so-called “pickup artists” are saying, acing a first date isn’t something that you pull off by just following a few magic pointers.

During my extensive research into the female psychology, there is no truth behind the tips that these people recommend and may even lead to disaster if they are followed.

Perhaps the most ridiculous of these pointers include wearing loud clothes to give the woman you’re on a date with the notion that you have a “colorful personality” as well as acting like the alpha male to make her think that she should only focus on you.

However, I’ve come across a few mistakes that some men tend to overlook that can ruin their chances of having a successful first date. Make sure you read on to find out what these are and boost your chances of landing Date Number 2…

You show up late.

I’d like to start things off with punctuality. Sure being late for 5 minutes or so isn’t that big of a deal for you, but showing up late on a first date is definitely one of the biggest mistakes that you’ll ever make.

Besides giving the woman you’re going out with the idea that you’re not really interested in her, she’s also going to have doubts about your personality as a guy.

She will think that you’re lazy and irresponsible, which isn’t going to earn you precious first date brownie points anytime soon.

You don’t keep a close eye on your grooming.

How you look and smell are two key factors that women tend to focus on almost immediately during a first date.

If your date thinks that your physical appearance isn’t that good or perhaps you smell a bit off, chances are she’s just going to feel anxious and uncomfortable around you.

You hog the discussion.

Getting your date to exchange meaningful ideas with you is important when it comes to making her feel more relaxed around you.

Make it a point to listen to her intently when she’s giving her inputs or else she will think that you’re monopolizing the discussion and will have a surge of negative hormones in her body.

This just means that she will clam up and you’ll have a tricky time turning the situation around in your favor.

You get too touchy-feely.

Now while it’s alright to use gestures to emphasize a point you’re making when you talk, overdoing the whole thing will just give your date the notion that you’re getting too frisky.

Remember to keep your hands to yourself and you’re good to go.

Having a tricky time breaking the ice during a date?

Having a tricky time breaking the ice during a date?

I’m really getting rather frustrated with the things that so-called “dating gurus” are saying when it comes to breaking the ice when you go out with a woman.

Besides remembering to give her the notion that you’re the alpha male by acting a tad snobbish, they’re also suggesting that opening your conversation with difficult subjects makes her feel that you’re smart.

Following this strategy not only makes you look like a jerk, but a blowhard as well, which already gives you a preview of how your date will turn out.

But the thing is I’ve picked up a few useful pointers that will boost your chances of successfully breaking the ice when you’re out on a date with a woman during my extensive research into the female psychology.

Read on to know what these are…

Switch off your mobile phone.

Sure having a mobile phone is a necessity these days, not turning it off when you’re trying to break the ice during a date will only get you distracted.

And not only that, it will also make your date think that you’re not really interested in her.

Make it a point to switch off your phone so you can really focus on your date. Just sticking with silent mode or vibrate won’t cut it.

Maintain appropriate eye contact.

Looking the woman you’re going on a date with in the eye is a must to make her feel that you’re being honest with her.

Avoiding her gaze will only give her the notion that you’re shady and having a date with you is a mistake, which can easily make her feel stressed instead of being comfortable in your company.

Got a problem having and keeping eye contact? Try focusing on the tip of her nose instead of her eyes at first to help you get on track.

Ask trivial questions.

I know this sounds surprising right now, but starting things off with really simple stuff like asking her what the name of her first pet is or perhaps her favorite TV show boosts your chances of engaging her in a meaningful conversation.

Besides being easy to answer, asking your date trivial questions also makes her feel that you’re not pretentious. A win-win situation, right?

Listen to her intently.

Always keep in mind that listening intently to a woman when you’re trying to get a meaningful exchange of ideas going is as important as knowing how to break the ice with her.

Doing this doesn’t just give her the notion that you’re really interested with what she’s saying, but you’re enjoying her company as well.
