Introducing Dr Love, who solves your relationship riddles in a confusing digital age
My friends all have great relationships with women, but I struggle even on second or third dates. I want to have a better time with women and come across as more relaxed and charming, but can't seem to get the hang of it. What can I do about this? I really need some helpful tips that can change how women see me.
There are no tips, to be honest, because it all boils down to how comfortable you are with your own skin. If you don't force yourself to be something you're not, you will come across as a more relaxed person than someone who is trying too hard. Ask yourself why you need to come across as more charming, to begin with. Your idea of what is charming may be dramatically different from what other people think it is. I also suggest you speak to female friends about how you come across and ask them if they think you're trying too hard. Don't be something you're not, and you should be just fine.
I have been friends with a guy for a few years, and have begun to change the way I see him. We are very good friends, but I think I am beginning to get attracted to him. He doesn't have a clue though, and thinks we are just good friends. I want him to consider the possibility of us taking this relationship a step further, but I'm afraid he doesn't even think of me that way. How can I change that perception for him without seeming a little desperate or making what we have a little awkward?
If the two of you are really close, you should just come right out and casually ask him if he would ever consider dating you. Gauge his reaction and allow the thought to sink into his mind. Ask him again a few weeks later, and tell him how you feel. If he won't consider it, your behaviour towards him will go a long way towards not making this awkward.
