There is no better feeling than the feeling that you get when you meet the person who you believe is perfect for you. However, that wonderful feeling can be ruined if you are in the “friend zone.” You can end up in the friend zone without even realizing that it is happening. If your crush says that you are like a best friend, or a brother/sister, you could have a problem. If you are in the friend zone with your crush, there are a few things that you can do to go from friends to lovers.
Don’t Be “Mr. Nice Guy” or “the Sweet Girl”
When you play the good guy/good girl role, it is easy for someone to look at you as more of a friend than anything else. The good guy/sweet girl, is someone who will do anything for anyone, even if it is at their own expense. Most people find these people friendship material, but not relationship material. While you should still be thoughtful and caring, don’t take it too far. Let your crush see that you have a mind of your own, and motives of your own. This will make you more appealing.
Avoid Being Needy
You may be more interested in your crush than they are into you, because you are being too needy. If you give signals that you are a bit desperate, it can ruin any attraction that you crush will feel for you. Even if you want to talk to your crush five or six times a day, don’t call and text that often. When your crush sends you a text message, don’t respond immediately. It will only give them the impression that you have been staring at your phone, waiting. When you look less needy, you will look more attractive, and even a little mysterious.
Most people do not put their arms around their friend’s shoulder, or give a playful touch here and there. If you are not doing this with your crush, how do you expect them to ever understand that you want to be more than friends. When having a conversation, playfully tap your crush on the shoulder when they say something funny. You can put your arm around them while walking. You can even take a risk and hold their hand. This will let them know that you want to be more than just their friend.
Don’t Wait Forever
Time is often the reason that people end up in the friend zone forever. If you wait too long, being in a relationship can feel weird to your crush. You could also wait too long, and your crush could end up with someone else. If you have been hanging out for two weeks, and are still just friends, you need to make your move. The sooner, the better.
Many people believe that there is no way out of the friend zone. This is not true. If you follow a few simple tips, you can go from best friend to boyfriend/girlfriend with ease.
