Every interaction counts, from the conference room to G-chat to the soccer field.
Start seeing technology as a useful tool to get to know guys better. Before you know it, your convos will be getting offline."Instead of trying to micromanage your love life, create open spots for men, planned or unplanned, to fill," Massa says. Until you do, a guy may not even realize you're into him.
Make yourself available to who you might meet and where the evening could take you."The more you're open to letting guys show you all the different sides of themselves, the more likely you'll surprise yourself and fall in love with one of them," Massa explains. Finally, you and The Prospective Boyfriend are doing something romantic that could lead to something serious.
Remember that he's already your friend, so there's a whole lot that he likes about you, Massa says. That means no crazy makeup or boob shirts when he's used to seeing you casual.
Smartphones can make your romantic life a little easier and a lot more fun. This may not be a brand "new rule," but it is important enough that it made the cut.
This cultivates trust between the two of you, helps you come to a conclusion regarding your issue, and saves your friends from yet another venting session.
If you must get advice about your guy, take it from a friend who is in a happy and healthy relationship.
When you hear a song you think a guy would like, send it to him on Spotify. Next time you're buying concert tickets for a band you love, buy two—and don't immediately decide who gets to be your plus-one. The key is getting the guy out of a familiar context. That's what happened to one guy Massa interviewed who met his now-fiancé on a volleyball team.
For once, don't jam your calendar with plans a season in advance. Only when they finally went out to dinner together did they both realize their connection.
