When it comes to dating, being in the friend zone is the worst. It could bruise your ego especially if you really love this person. Some of us have been there so long, that you might as well take up a sublet and get a parking permit. There are things you are inadvertently doing that are keeping you in the friend zone much longer than you need to be there. Here are things to do to dig out yourself from the friend zone:

Make your move ASAP

If you allow yourself to stay just a friend, your opportunity will come and go. There will be other men trying to sweep her off of her feet, and waiting may just ruin your chances altogether!

Admit you’re in the friend zone 

If you have tried to be intimate with her to no avail, you need to face the facts that you are viewed as just a friend right now. With this in mind, you can now take immediate action to get finally out of the routine of just being her buddy and hopefully turn your relationship into a love interest!

Allow her to miss you

Many people get stuck in the mentality that the other person is only a friend, but they never actually try to get out of it. If she calls you as usual, just say to her politely in the middle of a conversation that you do not have time right now and that you need to do something else. This tiny gesture will keep her thinking about you and why are you not here for her as you always were!

Work on your appearance

You need to make yourself desirable! There are many ways to do this, but you need to start immediately, and the perfect place to begin is with your wardrobe. You know everyone has their style, and you know what group you fit the best. Nice shoes, shirts and pants along with a nice new haircut will do the trick.

Gradually begin to touch her

Touching her in a playful way is an excellent idea and will let her know you are interested. Do not grope or grab her. Instead, you should hug her, put your arm around her and cuddle her.

Create a balance between being nice guy and bad boy

Unfortunately, you can’t always be nice when it comes to being friend-zoned. Often, a guy will become the friend that takes all of the abuse and wrong attitude in the process! Be nice, bring her out for drinks or to a movie, but never let her walk all over you. The bad boy inside of you must come out at some point. Every woman loves a bad boy, so be protective, outgoing and do not let anyone disrespect her.
