Entering the friend zone is always disappointing when you are looking for more. While friends are great to have, they aren’t always what we need. If you have met the perfect woman but you are in that non-intimate zone, here are a few ways you can break out of it.
Find Out Why
Is she just wanting to be friends because she’s afraid of a new relationship? If this is the case you can simply prove to her that you aren’t going to hurt her. Is she friends because she’s interested in someone else? This one may hurt at first, but it doesn’t mean you can’t be more. Just make yourself available for her. Availability is important when you are trying to establish a new relationship. Once you understand why you are still stuck in the friend zone, the easier it will be to break through it.
Communication doesn’t come easy for men. If you are attracted to a friend though, it’s important to have this skill. She is going to be much more appreciative if you just tell her how you feel.
You don’t need to be a jerk about it though. Be honest, but soft at the same time. Tell her that you can see yourself with her in the future. Don’t act childish and don’t be brute or aggressive. That’s the fastest way to lose her as a friend too.
Is It Worth It?
You need to figure out why it’s important to you to be more than just a friend. If it’s just the thrill of the chase, you are going to end up losing a friend in the long run. Try to evaluate why it’s important to you to be with her. If the connection really is there, then you have a better shot at making it work.
