I recently had a conversation with one of the most stunningly beautiful, smart, accomplished, fun, grounded, talented girls I know and was STUNNED to find out she has never dated anyone. What?! How is this possible? I thought to myself.
So after watching her at a recent party, I realized guys have no clue she’s willing to go with them—no affirming “It’s been great talking to you. I’d like to talk more later.” No head tilt. No feminine gestures. True, she was still witty, funny, articulate, and beautiful . . . and it hit me—it’s not her, it’s her technique. So I guess my question is, how do I help my friend in a very kind, subtle way?
Alisa’s response: It’s amazing how many great women there are out there who don’t know how to make men feel great. Many women think flirting is beneath them, but the whole purpose of flirting (and pursuing) is supposed to be about making the opposite sex feel great. And when they feel great, they want more time with you, they want to get closer to you, and they want to get to know you.
I suggest that you gently prepare her for this conversation by sending her a text, e-mail, or voice message. State, “I realized something the other day that may really be helpful to you in getting more dates. If you’re interested, give me a call so I can share it with you.” This will help prepare her to listen to your advice. Then, when she calls, try to explain what you saw when she was interacting with men and what you have learned about the 17 secrets to the male psychology (click here to get a copy) and the behaviors men need from women in order to feel great (which is different from the way she may think they need it).
Most likely, she will be relieved to learn that it’s not her—it’s her technique.
Good luck, and I ‘m glad to hear your relationship is going well,
