Just A Friend: 5 Great Tips For Escaping the Friend Zone

It's a common phenomenon that many men have experienced: being in the friend zone. The “friend zone” refers to a girl thinking of you only as a friend when you actually want to be in a relationship with her. For some guys there is no hope of ever getting out of the friend zone. Women have no obligation to be more than your friend and honestly, you should be glad to have them as a friend! However, for others, there may be a chance for a potential romance with a girl who once thought of you as “just a friend”. In these instances, you'll have to put some work in. Check out five great tips for escaping the friend zone:

1. Acknowledge That You Have Been Friend Zoned

The first step to escaping the friend zone is acknowledging that you're in the friend zone. It may be hard to do this, since many men tend to be in denial about it. You need to recognize that you have, in fact, been put in the friend zone and you need to be okay with this. Yes, you need to be okay with this. You don't want to force a woman to be with you. You want her to actually want to be with you. So you need to realize that at this point in time, she doesn't want to be with you. From there, you can move forward.

2. Work On Self-Improvement

The next step in escaping the friend zone is to start working on yourself. There are obviously some reasons this girl does not want to be with you. They may be physical, like your haircut or your physique. They may be personality traits that turn her off. Either way, you need to work on improving yourself so that you have a better chance with her.

3. Be A Good Friend To Her

Now, we shouldn't have to tell you to be a good friend to someone. This girl is your friend, and you should already be a good friend to her whether it's going to end in romance or not. Now, with that said, being a great friend does improve your chances of this friendship turning into romance. Show her that you can be loyal and compassionate as a friend, and she might realize that you can be loyal and compassionate as a boyfriend.

4. Hang Out With Your Other Friends

Another step for escaping the friend zone is by spending time with your other friends. Don't obsess over this girl or smother her. That will only ruin your chances of ever having a relationship with her. Show her that you have a life other than her and that you do enjoy spending time with other people. This also gives her the space to spend time with her other friends.

5. Improve Your Flirting Techniques

Sometimes a guy gets friend zoned due to poor communication and bad flirting skills. This means the girl honestly doesn't know that he wants to be more than friends! If she doesn't know that you like her, it's unlikely you'll ever progress to more than a friendship. You have to be more obvious when flirting with her so that she knows you're interested in something more.

Major Turn-Offs: 7 Things That Men Find Unattractive

What do men want? It's an age-old question that women think they have found the answer to. They feel that most men want a beautiful woman who is also fun. The reality is that men are looking for a lot more than that. So what exactly are they looking for? Well, an easy way to explain what men are looking for is by telling you what they aren't looking for. The following are seven things that men find unattractive about a woman:

1. Wearing Too Much Makeup

Makeup is a great form of self-expression but when it's done in excess, it's something men find unattractive. Rather than slathering on a full face of makeup, opt for a more natural look with minimal makeup. Basically, go for a look that's not going to rub off on his shirt when he hugs you.

2. Gossiping About People

Gossiping and talking about other's business is a very unattractive quality. No one wants to see their partner reveling in another person's misfortune. So when you are gossiping about other people's lives and their issues, it shows that you are juvenile and insensitive.

3. Being Too Clingy

Being clingy is a major thing that men find unattractive. You need to have your own life and give him some space. If you insist on spending every second with him, you're only going to push him away. This also applies to contacting him constantly. Keep calling and texting to a minimum.

4. Being Full of Yourself

Confidence is one thing, narcissism is another. Men like women who are confident, but not arrogant. It's okay to be proud of who you are, but it is not okay to brag about yourself and act like you are better than others.

5. Complaining About Everything

Nobody wants to be with someone who is negative all the time. Complaining about everything is a sure-fire way to turn a guy off. Men would rather be with a woman who chooses to see the good in things, instead of a woman who constantly has something bad to say.

6. Talking About Your Ex All the Time

Talking about your ex all the time will definitely send a man running for several reasons. If you're always mentioning your ex, whether it be good things or bad things, it just seems like you are hung up on the past. No guy wants to get involved with someone who isn't over their ex.

7. Partying Constantly

It's okay to have fun, but there's a fine line between having fun and constantly partying. Dating a “wild child” may be a good idea for a young guy, but as men get older, they want a woman who is more down to earth and would rather stay home than go out and party.

More Than Beauty: 5 Things Guys Like About A Girl Besides Her Looks

What do mem want? Does anyone really know? Most women think that men want someone beautiful. This is why they spend hours working on their appearance, picking out the perfect outfit and doing their makeup. While men do look at beautiful women, looks aren't the only thing that matter to them. There are several other things that matter to men when they're looking for a woman to date. Read on to find out five things guys like about a girl besides her looks:

They like when they can have a substantial conversation with a woman. They like a woman who is cultured and well-educated, not someone who acts ignorant.

2. Confidence

Confidence is one of the sexiest things about a person. No one likes someone who is insecure and desperate. Men want to see a woman who is confident and knows her worth. They like women who have high self-esteem and will not settle for less than they deserve.

3. Happiness

Nobody likes a “Debbie Downer”! Happiness is contagious and attractive. It draws people towards you. This is why men love women who are happy. They do not like women who are miserable and complain all the time. A woman is negative and complains all the time will only bring down anyone who is with her.

4. Sense of Humor

A sense of humor is one of the top things guys like about a girl. A girl who can laugh and make fun of herself is a girl that people want to spend time with. If a girl can never laugh at herself and takes everything seriously, she is going to be awful to be in a relationship. This is why men love when a woman has a sense of humor.

5. Kindness

Kindness is one of the key things that guys like about a girl. Women who are kind to those around them are the most attractive. Always be nice to those who can do nothing for you.

If you're initiating all of the conversations, he's just not that into you. If a guy likes you, he'll call you, text you, contact you on social media, etc. If he's not doing any of these things, then he's not interested.

2. He Doesn't Listen To You

A definite sign that a guy isn't interested is if he doesn't listen to anything you say. If you've been hanging out for a few weeks and he still doesn't know basic things about you, it's because he doesn't care (or he has short term memory loss…). So if you're on the third date, and he asks you for the tenth time where you went to high school…yeah, he hasn't been listening.

3. He Sends Mixed Signals

If a guy keeps sending you mixed signals. consider him uninterested. When a guy likes you, he'll make it clear.

4. He Flirts With Other Women

This one should be obvious, ladies. A guy isn't interested if he is blatantly flirting with other women. Sure, some guys just have flirtatious personalities. However, if he purposely flirts with other women in the hopes of hooking up with them, he's not interested in you.

5. He Doesn't Respect You

If a guy is not respectful to you, he definitely does not like you. When a guy is interested, he will treat you nicely. If he's disregarding you and treating you like dirt, it's because that's what he thinks of you.

6. He Doesn't Make Time For You

Everyone has busy lives, but if a guy likes you, he'll make time for you. If he constantly has excuses for why he's not hanging out with you, it's because he doesn't want to. A guy isn't interested in you if he's not making you a priority.

7. He Keeps You A Secret

This is a huge sign that a guy isn't interested. If you've been hanging out with you for a while and his friends and family have no idea you exist, this is an issue. When he's keeping you a secret, it's because he's not interested in something serious with you.

What A Girl Wants: 7 Ways to Impress A Woman

Women can be difficult to figure out. What do they like? What do they hate? Even when they make it explicitly clear what they're looking for, somehow the message still gets mixed up. Men often struggle to figure out what women want. For this reason, many guys just resolve to stay single instead of trying to impress women. It turns out, things don't need to be this hard. There are certain things nearly all women find attractive, and we're about to share those things with you! Here are seven foolproof ways to impress a woman:

1. Be Kind to Strangers

Yes, we specifically said to be kind to strangers. Be nice to people who have nothing to do with you, so there is no motive for your kindness. When you're kind to those who can do nothing for you, it shows that you are just a caring and compassionate person. This will certainly impress a woman.

2. Have Goals and Ambitions

Women hate men who are lazy and have no ambition. Show her that you're passionate about things and that you have goals you want to achieve. If she thinks you just sit around playing video games all day, she definitely won't be interested. She needs to see you have drive!

3. Have A Sense of Humor

One of the best ways to impress a woman is by having a sense of humor. Women love funny guys. If you can make fun of yourself and have a sense of humor, it will make you ten times more attractive. No one wants to date a guy who is serious and boring all the time.

4. Show Confidence

Insecurity is a huge turn-off to women. If she thinks you're insecure, she'll probably want nothing to do with you. You need to show her that you're confident in yourself. This includes being confident in your looks, intelligence, personality, and other life aspects. If you're not fully secure about certain things, try working those issues out before you begin dating someone.

5. Open Up About Yourself

Men tend to keep their feelings bottled up and this drives women crazy! If you can be in touch with your emotions, it will seriously impress a woman. Show her that you're not afraid to be vulnerable, scared or upset. Be open with her about your feelings or concerns, and she'll definitely be impressed.

6. Show Interest In Her Life

Few things will impress a woman more than showing a solid interest in her life. Actually listen to what she says. Remember what she likes and doesn't like. Ask her about her job or her family. She'll be seriously impressed that you're a guy who is showing interest in her life, because very few guys actually do.

7. Be Adventurous

Women like men who are bold and adventurous. This doesn't mean you need to take her bungee jumping on the first date. It just means that you can't be afraid to try new things. Being adventurous can be as simple as trying a food you never thought you'd eat, or going for a spontaneous road-trip to a place you've never been.

3 Crucial Steps To Find The Woman Of Your Dreams

When you ask an average guy what his “dream woman” is like, don’t be surprised that most of them will say they want someone who is drop-dead gorgeous. In other words, physical beauty is the top priority for men looking for a partner. We all know that physical beauty isn’t the only quality that’s required for a healthy and long-lasting relationship. In fact, relationships based on physical attraction don’t last.

So what should a man look for when finding the right person, or should we say his “dream woman” to be in a long-term relationship? Here are three crucial steps to finding and keeping the woman of your dreams:

1. Look At The Bigger Picture

If a man is adamant in his fantasy and the unrealistic quest for his “dream woman,” one of the biggest setbacks he will have to face is finding her in the first place. We don’t know that it will happen. If a man wants a dream woman and intends to be in a long-term relationship with her, he needs to change his thinking and look at the bigger picture. He should envision a woman who can help him achieve his dreams as well as share the life he always imagined for himself. It means that he should choose a woman who has all the essential qualities and behavior that are needed to love and support him in realizing those dreams, regardless how she looks.

2. Determine What You Want In Life

This one seems simple. Before your start living the life you always imagined, you first need to decide what your goals are. Clarify your personal vision of a happy, comfortable, exciting and fulfilling life. Once you’ve done that, the next step becomes apparent. Now you know exactly what qualities the woman of your dreams must have to help you to achieve those goals. So go figure yourself out. And until you know yourself and what you need, there is little to no chance that you will find a woman who will love and care for you in wonderful, life-changing ways for who you are.

3. Pair Up With Your Dream Woman

We find it amazing that lots of guys brood and complain about their cruel, selfish women in their lives. This happens because most guys neglected or weren't aware of the pros of “matching up” with their woman in the beginning. To put this into perspective, if you like to travel and always dream of sailing across the world, you need to date or be in a relationship with a woman who is spontaneous, likes being outdoors, is fearless, and has an incredible passion for nature and adventure.


The bottom line is, if you want to be in a relationship with your “dream woman,” first you need to be fully honest about what you envisioned for the future that you want for yourself. Only then will you  find success in your search for the perfect woman.
