Post Gah @ this problem always happening...

Well, basically with every girl I actually like and think is cool and have been talking to for some time, ends up going out with one of my friends. It totally sucks. It's happened at least 4 times already. I really can't wait till I move...

Act quickly, my friend... I have pretty much the same problem as you. Waiting too long to ask a girl out. You should read my thread "how to avoid the 'friend' zone" it has basically the advice you need.

As for your friends taking the girl... if they are good enough friends, you should be able to stake your claim on a girl... just say "that one's mine, guys." I had a group of friends in high school who I could do that with, & they'd respect it. It's kind of like an unwritten code between young guy friends. Although if your friends are competitive that could be a problem.

Hmmmm.... kill your friends? Heh nevermind... bad advice.

I'm not that great at getting girlfriend-type material, but I guess I can try & help you if you just want dates.

The main thing about getting a girl is being able to tell what they want through the smallest amount of conversation possible. Get what I mean? The best thing to do to practice, I guess, is head to the mall & find you a girl that you could walk up to & talk to. Now try to watch her for a few minutes... don't STALK her, just try to observe. Try to see what kinds of stores she's going into, what she's buying, what kind of friends she has, how she walks, how she talks, anything that might help you know more about her. Now go up to her & try to use what you observed to have a conversation... make sure you attempt to get her number or have her meet you somewhere later. Don't ever give her your number. It'll just get your hopes up, & 90% of the time she won't call.

If at first you don't succeed, try try again.

Just keep doing that until you get good at it. It's about quantity, not quality. I know that above is kinda vague, but you get the point: practice. It's really easy to type up, much harder to get good at. But the only way you can get good is to practice.

If you want a girlfriend... umm i can't really help you there... I'm not that good at getting girlfriends myself, sorry.

This may be bad advice, but maybe if you asked the GIRL to hook you up with one of her friends, and if you date her friend, she will see what a great guy you really are, and she'll get to know you (girls talk about this type of stuff, I think) and if there's ever any problems with her and your friend, she'll like you and basically, you can break it off with the other girl, tho it may be cruel and confess to the original one.

and if you cant break off with the girl you'd be with, I dont think you'll really have any interest in the original girl, if you know what I mean.

Live Present, Not Past.

I was just reading this and for some reason it riminded me of my brother. Why I don't know, he gets every girl he wants.

But how he does it.

He acts Gay. It works. Why is that?
Its amazing, although my wife claims he is still gonna end up actually being gay. I don't know.

But I've seen alot of guys do it and it works.

Tell me more, please..how do you act gay...just like the hand movements n ****? I have no idea how you act Gay, i see gays as the same people with different preferances..(except big gay al, leather men etc, but lets not get into it)

Anyway, give me some examples, ill give it a try, and make my new school really have a good impression of me (haha)

Bah @ acting gay. If it did work, then you'd probably end up acting gay too much & you might even end up that way. If it didn't work, then you'd just look like a moron, which is never a good thing. Just practice talking to girls. All the time. Don't go a day without talking to one.

Hmmm... I know what you mean with the guessing thing, sounds like putting them into 'types' but oh well, usually works. Sad but true. I was with my friend again today and I think its she likes him, he does but hes pretty "ehhhhhh" about it like hes not sure. I guess I will just go up to her when hes NOT there and put the mack on.
