How to Become More Than Friends!

Become More Than Friends

Being stuck in the friend zone can be annoying and frustrating. This doesn’t happen because of him or because of her but sometimes there is just a place where people get stuck. If you want to get out of the friend zone and move past friendship into something more, it can happen.

Admitting this though can make things different or even uncomfortable. You might have decided that you want to be more than friends, but you need to know that when you approach things like this it can be an end to your friendship, or it can make the friendship feel awkward.

If you’re going to be upset seeing her with someone else someday though, go ahead and take the chance. Make sure that you know the implications first and what you’re willing to put on the line.

Be Honest

Find out if she feels the same way about you than you feel about her but first you need to be honest with yourself about what you’ve seen. Do you feel that she looks at you differently than she did before? Do you feel a chemistry with her? Is she talking about other guys that she is hooking up with that aren’t you? Does she want to go out with just you or just includes you in the plans?

Make a Plan

Once you decide that you’re going to tell her that you like her, make a plan. After you tell her how you feel, there’s no going back. Everything will be said, and you will be vulnerable. Of course, it can be successful and if she says no there are things that you can do to save your friendship. But if things go in a different direction, that might end up landing you your dream girl.

Think about what you know about her and how she will react to what you’re going to say. Does she talk about her feelings, or does she have a hard time with this? Have there been guys that have hurt her in the past? What turns her on and what turns her off?

Since you’ve been thinking about this for a while, take time to think about how you’re going to approach it.

Here’s What Not to Do

There are some things to do and some things not to do and here are some of the things that can make this an epic fail:

  • Don’t try to force her to like you.
  • Don’t be a creep if she doesn’t like you.
  • If she decides it’s a no, focus on someone else.
  • She might decide to be a friend only and if she does, don’t get mad.

Being mature in this no matter what is the best thing that you can do.

Pick the Right Time

Make sure that you are picking the right time to tell her how you’re feeling but make sure that you aren’t forcing things. Notice if there is chemistry and let things move forward in a natural and calm way. Once you are ready to make the first move, you will know this.

Go out to dinner or to get drinks together. See if she seems to be flirting with you or if she gets focused on someone else that she thinks is hot. Lots of relationships start with friendship first and then they move on into great romantic relationships.

If you are able to date your best friend, you will have someone that is perfect for you and is always on your side.

Admit It’s a No if it Is

If she decides that being friends is the best, don’t be upset at yourself for trying but stay friends with her and be mature. You never know what could happen later in life.

Leave if She Is Playing You

One thing to notice is that if she is playing you or stringing you along then its time for you to walk away. She isn’t worth your effort or your time if this is happening. She might only want you around when it makes her life easier, or she might always make excuses as to why she can’t be there with you.

Don’t think she wants more if this is happening. Listen to your gut feeling because it will guide you down the right path. If something seems off, it probably is. Going past the friend zone can take time and you need to be mature and confident no matter what.

Listen to what your gut feeling is telling you and if it says not to do it, don’t and if it says go for it, do it! Handle the situation with honor and good sense even if you find that you aren’t on the same page.
