Very often you think that things are going well, and you’re making progress to potentially being in a serious relationship, and the next thing you know you get hit with the “as a friend” line. You scratch your head and go back and forth thinking how did you get here. It’s a frustrating feeling. My honest advice would be to move on. Download one of those online dating apps and try to find someone else. According to this eHarmony review, they tend to work wonders. But if you are hell-bent and focused your situation around then who am I to stand in the way of true love. In fact, I’m going to try to help. Here are 5 steps to help you get out of the friend zone.
#5 – Be less friendly
Do you want to know why you got stuck in the friend zone? Because you were friendly. Try being less like their best friends and more like the person you actually want to be- their lover.
#4 – Go MIA
Have you ever heard the saying “you don’t know what you have until its’ gone?” That saying often times holds true. People tend to appreciate something more when they don’t have it, or worse, or lose. Try being missing in action for a while. Let them miss you, but don’t let them forget you. When they ask why you’ve been away be mysterious with your excuses.
#3 – Change your style
Being considered a friend means that they appreciate everything about you. They may even have feelings for you. The only thing missing is the sexual attraction. And you’d be surprised, but that’s the easy part! Mixing up your style can go a long way. Try a different perfume; change your wardrobe, your hairstyle. Really go for it.
#2 – Get them jealous
Being stuck in the friend zone, you tend to get jealous of everyone your crush is talking to. Well, then it’s only fair that you return the favor getting them jealous from a potential crush or potential lover can go a long way. But there is a very fine line playing the jealousy game. You don’t want to overplay your hand.
#1 – Admit your feelings
At this point, you’ve done all you could do switch up the mechanics of your relationship and get your crush confused about what they want. This is your best bet and best shot and telling them how you feel about them. After all, it is a foregone conclusion that you have to eventually tell them how you feel. How else do you want to get out of the friend zone? Build up the courage and jump in with both feet. The water may be cold at first but it will warm eventually. Who knows? They might have had a change of heart, and now feel the same way.
