5 ways to get them in love with you

25 August 2015, 18:29 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - How do you catch their attention?

Be their friend first

In my opinion; if you ever have a hope in hell of avoiding the friend zone, you have to go in guns blazing. You have to let this person know. Yes I like you. Yes, I want us to be friends. And no, I am not calling you late at night to hear about what your crush, ex-man did but I want to have a sex chat with you. I am interested in you and I want you as my woman or man. If you ever allow a person to give you a sob story twice and you are the one that called; you even give them advice; you are in the friend zone already.

Establish a connection

Meet this person. Get to know them. When they say establish a connection, they mean in those two dates you have already had or conversations. Do you have the same interests? Do they like you? Would you have sex with them… and enjoy it?

They do not mean, wait two years for them to get out of the bad relationship while you give them advice to hold on. That is stupid. That is not establishing a connection but establishing a therapeutic session where you are not even getting paid for it.

Show them you are ‘girlfriend/ wife’ or ‘boyfriend/ husband’ material

And Santa also lives in North Pole and still makes it to Africa to give us presents in the night. You are just giving this person opportunity to exploit you for free while they run around with the hopeless and use you as a band aid. Then they get back on track until the next crash. If you are a man, make a woman earn you and your interest. If you are a woman make a man earn you and your interest. You can’t be that cheap.

 Giving out freebies!  Have you ever seen a customer instantly become loyal in the supermarket? They will taste that fresh juice then you will see them with a two liter Coke bottle in their trolley after you have just quenched their afternoon thirst.

You have to give it time

For what? If they don’t like you, they don’t like you. Move on and look for someone who does. If they can’t stand you kissing them, the sex will not be great either. They are not the only kind of their species. Yes, they would have looked good on your arm but remember you can always make someone look as good as you or even better. Are you waiting for them to get over a bad relationship or a bad experience? Wait, but wait while you are keeping other people company. Do not be someone’s convenient store. “You were there, so you will do!”


Wait for the right opportunity

Refer to the above explanation. If they are here, now, single and what you like. Tell them. Get a response and work from there.
