There's this one girl who I sit by in my history class and we talk and know each other. I asked her out in the middle of October but she said she has a boyfriend. We still talk though because i'm in a study group with her. Honestly just because she's not into me like that doesn't mean i'm going to stop being nice to her. I'm okay with just being friends but that doesn't mean i'm going to wait around for her to like me back, no i'm going to pursue other women because hot chicks are abundant in college. Part of the reason I go to college is for the girls lol.

The problem is though is that every time I try to talk to her on snapchat, it takes her hours to respond and she always responds with 1-worded responses even though I know she's on Snapchat all the time.

I will just take that as a sign of disinterest.

People are always saying it's awkward to ask girls out in your college class and for them to say no. But honestly, I don't even give a flying ****.

I'm a little skeptical to be honest because imagine being friends with a girl for 6 months who you have a crush on. You simply think being nice to her and being her friend will make her like you romantically. So one day you finally decide to ask her out only for her to tell you she only sees you as a friend and was never interested in you romantically and she is also seeing other guys. Well guess what? You wasted 6 months of your life trying to impress a girl who never had feelings for you in the first place.
if you really want a girl ask her out within 15 minutes of meeting her...

Thatís a good approach. Put your wants and desires out there. If she doesnít reciprocate, her loss.

But, stop trying to be friends with them if they say no. Be friendly, but donít be waiting on her messages.

I thought you were done with her last month. She has a BF & while polite never gave any indication that she liked you back. You erred by asking her again.

Well the thing is, she broke up with her boyfriend in early December.

I asked her if she wanted to go grab a bite to eat the 18th of December, that's when she ignored me. So yeah, I may have tried too soon where as had I of just waited, maybe she would have responded. That's a mistake on my part.

It's too bad, I actually liked her. Yeah she's my physical ideal, but that's not what made me catch feelings for her. It was her kindness and maturity, and also we have similar interests.

Oh well, i'm not one to fixate on girls who are never going to give me the time of day. I ask them out, they say no, it hurts for a couple of days, then I move on. I don't waste my time on people who are never going to give me the time.


I'm preparing myself for next semester. I'm in the process of gaining bulk and muscle, going to get some good clothes and a decent haircut so when I step foot in my classes for next semester, I will be on my A-game.

OK at least you waited until the BF was out of the picture.

Best wishes on a successful next semester.

You have already answered your question. You are a shrewd young man. Yes, friends first but only for a short while (i mean no more than a couple of weeks at the most). Be nice, dress good, make her laugh and then ask her out. If you leave it longer you will be forever stuck in the friend zone.

There is maybe just one way you get out of the friend zone. When the guy dumps her and she comes too you then offer her your shoulder to cry on. She is now emotionally vulnerable and you will get to f**k her. Sorted.

Never ask a girl on a date straight out after she just got out of a failed relationship. That's the same lame BS every other vulture does when they notice a girl is now single. If you want to work it like that you can but you have to be more subtle. Just talk, be her friend. She will likely appreciate that you didn't try to pounce on her right away.

That is what I like to see! This is how you live life. I did the same thing when I went back to college and it worked like a charm. Show up correct, act right, and the ladies will take notice. Just don't go chasing some girl that isn't interested. That ruins your credibility with the other ladies.

Guitar Guy. I think that all you really need is peace of mind. Your young. You have your life ahead of you. I would take a break from dating women and making it an even for yourself.

If you really feel something for a woman, then maybe you explore it if she passes your criteria. Your not asking out women, because of her being hot or whatever. She really needs to be more than that. I sense you want more of a GF type. Not a fling.

If a woman is in your social group or where ever you are. You need to build a personal criteria for yourself so your not really wasting time and building the women up in your mind.

Ask her out after interaction 4 and before that. Make sure you know her status. So you have to know if she is single, before you ask her out.

I don't remember if I responded in this thread already, but I do have an opinion on it. Be friends to be friends and if something more comes from it, wonderful. If not, be happy you made a friend...

Cookie. Most guys can't b friends with a woman, unless they see her as a Mother/Sister/Cousin vibe or the personality it off.

None of my male friends that are married/attached, have no female friends except 2 of them.

Being friends first does not work 90% of the time. Might as well go into it right away.

I hung out with a female friend JC and we were walking in the park. All the romantic/sexual feelings came out in me as we were walking, but then I checked myself and I said. I like the shell of her, more than the personality. She would have to be way more sweet to me and make a major effort to get me to be into her like that.

As I grow older. Personality and how that woman treats me is what moves more than physical looks. My preference looks wise is all over the place.

I think you can be friends with women but it depends on the context.

Like for instance, there's just say there's this girl at work who either you're not attracted to or she has a boyfriend. You can talk to her, be friendly to her, establish a connection to the point where you two know each other well enough to be considered good aquitences. But, this connection will never extend outside of the workplace. There's nothing wrong with that sort of friendship. In fact, it might be beneficial especially if you're shy because now you can learn how to get comfortable talking to women and maybe, just maybe she can help set you up with someone she does know.

However, i'm not going to be simply hanging out with a girl i'm not interested in. If I invite her out to do things and it's just me and her, then the intent is to never be friends, but to be more than friends. Most women arne't stupid, if you go ask them to go do something, they'll know you're trying to ask them out.

I asked a woman at my gym out in August of 2017. We had lunch next to her work. I told hr within 10 minutes of sitting down with her, that I had a crush on her and I was wanting to know if the was with her daughters father. She said she was married and surprised that I had a crush on her.

Why did she accept my lunch date with her. Why did she not say something like. Let me check with my husband for something like that.

People are strange.

I don't ever feel like I could convert any of my female friends into romantic prospects.

You almost have to be aquintances for the most part. When a woman is attracted to you. Most of the time she is going to be straight forward cut and dry for the most part.

If I really want a GF right now. I have to be chill about it and let it just happen. Keep on meeting people and let the magic happen naturally. Not go out and chase and try to figure out how to get her to like me. Its more like life wants us to chill out about being in love and trying to get people into us that way.

Its not like all of us here are 90 and we went our entire lives without love, and it never happened for us.
