ARE you a dude looking for love? You’re doing it all wrong. Flirtation expert Eleanor Shaw outlines six fool-proof methods of attracting the female sex:
Leave her alone
Though you might have heard somewhere that women respond to persistence, they actually love a man who has the confidence to give her space – and a lot of it. Try not contacting her for six weeks and you’ll see incredible results.
Stop bothering her
Studies show that women are the more social sex, but did you know that no matter how much they like you, they don’t want to talk to you 24 hours a day? Don’t get in their faces with texts or WhatsApps and watch the honeys lap it up.
Tell her you’re not interested
As a woman, I can confidently say that men who openly admit to fancying us are, by-and-large, pathetic. I mean, who just comes out and says that? Give yourself a much better chance by firmly saying you don’t want to be anything but friends and then sticking to it no matter what.
Date someone else
Us girls are more subtle than blokes, and a man being single is a bit too obvious and makes him seem an unattractive, lonely creep. Prove that you’re worth her time by going out with another woman and never, ever even hinting at any interest in cheating.
Move to another country
British men are ten a penny, particularly in the UK. An international man of mystery is far sexier, especially if the move is to somewhere remote and difficult to reach like St Helena. Play the long game. It’s worth it.
Tell her you’re gay
A woman will never truly feel relaxed around you unless she’s certain that you’re not trying to sleep with her. An easy way to allay her fears? Tell her you’re a raging homosexual and she’ll be thrilled. Don’t be afraid to put your money where your mouth is, either. Women love that.
