Avoid The Dreaded Friend Zone! Tips For Guys

Posted by: Beena Q (February 25, 2012)

Yes, Indeed. It happens to the best of us. Whenever a woman says “Let’s just be friends”, you can be assured that you did something to devalue yourself. Instead of crying like the man-child you are, pick yourself back up, slap your face a few times with hot sauce, and read these tips-to save yourself from future humiliation.  Just don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Break the “nice guy” stereotype. 

Don’t try to be goofy/self-deprecating. If you learn one thing from this article, let it be this: Everyone wants goofy friends. But they don’t necessarily want to date them.  Being goofy is lovely, funny is charming and all — but save those qualities for when you’ve already landed a date.

Don’t be too subtle. It might be painfully obvious to you that you have an enormous crush on someone in your friend group, but trust me, there’s a good chance the object of your crush has no idea. People who frequently get stuck in the Friend Zone are often subtle flirters. But unfortunately, eye contact and “a good connection” does not a flirtatious exchange make.  Odds are you’re not coming on strongly enough — or not at all. If you like someone, let her know you like her! Don’t give her a reason to doubt your interest.

Don’t be too available. The most surefire way to land yourself permanently in the “Friend Zone” is to be completely available to the other person with your emotions and your time. Soon, you’re the one she is texting cause she’s bored or inviting out on Tuesday night cause she has no other plans. Instead say,  ”Can we reschedule? I have to meet up the guys that night.”

Stop acting like her girlfriend If she treats you like her girlfriend then you’ll never be her boyfriend. This is important. Don’t let a woman talk about her day at work, the jerk she’s dating or the minute details of her boring life. Be honest with yourself and admit that you don’t care. Because as soon as she’s done unloading her life problems on you, she goes out with the jerk she’s dating. So ask yourself, do you want to be the jerk she’s dating or her girlfriend that gets crapped on?

Never be afraid to walk away Chances are the girl you’re trying to win over isn’t Megan Fox. Having other options available makes you more attractive to women. I’m sure you’ve seen it before in every lame romantic comedy. Guy gets heart broken by woman. Guy moves on to a more attractive and compatible woman. Ex-girlfriend sees guy is happy and tries to get him back. So get out and meet other women. You’ll enjoy life more and possibly spark some attraction in your lady friend. Plus if it doesn’t turn out how you wanted you’ll be relieved knowing she can’t put you in the friend zone if you’re not around.
