The older we get the more we tend to complicate things. We stress too much about how much we should reveal about ourselves. Keeping our feelings and thoughts closely guarded is a sure way to not get hurt but also not get involved in a committed relationship.
If you are interested in a special someone, it’s really quite simple; be yourself. However, if the pressure and anxiety of how to behave in front of your love interest is too much to bear, we can help. Follow these steps when you want that special someone to know you want to be more than just friends.
If you are genuinely interested in her, have a heart to heart conversation. Discuss both hers and your dreams, fears, hopes, and all the things that keep you up at night.
She won't fall in love with you if you don't notice her. Compliment on the things you notice about her that make her unique; it could be her walk, the way she eats or her quirky fashion sense. It's the small things not everyone pays attention about her.
There is nothing more romantic than a guy taking his girl for a slow dance. It can be anywhere, in the middle of the kitchen or a jazz club. Let your inhibitions down and just dance with her.
If you had a great time on the date, call and leave a message letting her know you can't wait to do it again. Hearing the excitement in your voice means much more than just getting a text.
Show kindness, you don't have to be mean and critical. Speak to her in the same way you would want her to speak to you. Don't belittle and humiliate.
Ask her about her opinion on things. You may already know what you want to do but she'll be impressed you thought of her.
There is nothing wrong with holding the door for her or pulling a chair. You are equals here but showing a little chivalry is really romantic.
Leave a love note in her purse. Buy her that scarf or shoes she has been wishing for. Do the unexpected.
Surprise her with flowers just because. You don't need a reason or a special day to send her flowers
You might think she is "the one" but make sure you are taking things slowly and calmly. You don't know if she is there yet so instead of scaring her by coming across as desperate, just take a deep breath and let things flow naturally.
Sing her a song, play the guitar or piano for her. You don't have to have the perfect voice but showcase your passion through music.
Show up on time for your date. It's understandable we can't control traffic but if you are constantly late, it shows her you just don't care enough to be on time.
Don't be afraid to be funny and silly. The more you let loose the more likely she'll be inclined to join in.
Be the friend she laughs with but also cries and shares her feelings with. Her coming to you does not reflect a sign of weakness, it takes a lot of strength to show vulnerability.
You have shown her what a great friend you are. Now start flirting with her so she knows you are interested. Go to a nice dinner, hold her hand, and arrive at parties together.
