It’s not surprising that many women who find themselves stuck in some guy’s friends zone are not happy about it.
What WAS surprising to me was that before I started DiaLteG TM I had no idea that women even had this problem.
It was my belief that men were destined to chase women and so they held all the power and made all the decisions on who to feel attracted to.
While I’m not happy I was wrong… it’s good to know I was because I now get to take what I know about men and the friends zone to hopefully answer some questions about attraction for women.
Let me start by asking you a few simple questions about the guys who have wanted you but you felt little attraction for.
- Can a guy BUY his way into your heart?
- Can he CONVINCE you to feel something you’re not?
- Can he ROMANCE you relentlessly to capture your heart?
- Can he PUSH you into a relationship you’re not ready for?
I’m assuming you know those answers because you’ve either experienced that happening first hand and watched it happen to some other woman.
Unfortunately that is what lots of men do who find themselves in the friends zone.
More unfortunately the fact remains, as a woman, doing those same things to a guy you like will NOT work either.
Try to romance me and if I’m not attracted to you feels creepy and repels me even more.
Try to buy your way in and you’ll only offend me and make me feel less than a man.
Try to convince me to like you and I’ll only get sick of seeing you. I’ll avoid you because it feels awkward, pressured and weird.
Try to push me into a relationship and you’ll only push me further away.
Friendly inhabitants appear to act or react the same way when it comes to wanting someone who doesn’t want you back.
“That secret comes down to the reality that if a man isn’t ATTRACTED to a woman, all of her attempts to confess her love, convince him to like her and court her, BACKFIRE. A Secret About Men Women Do Not Know – The Paradox Of Attraction. (dialteg.org)
They ask the same questions.
They look for any sign of hope to keep them going and if they find it, cling to it for as long as they feel an overwhelming attraction.
They conclude this as often a last ditch effort to continue doing what’s NOT working,
“What if we were meant to be together!!!”
We also to rationalize the past and blame ourselves,
“What did I do wrong?”
“Why am I attracted to men I can not have?”
I’ve been guilty of giving advice to help everyone rid themselves of the friend zone. I’ve given post after post explaining every aspect of it but that’s because I’m a self-declared expert on it.
I have studied this problem immensely AND I lived it for more years than most will ever have to endure.
I understand the disparity.
I understand how it feels like someone or something is NOT letting us have what we want.
I understand how it feels to believe another person was meant for us and how we’re destined to never have it happen.
I also understand that no amount of ‘hope’ can or will ever change the situation.
When women are stuck in the friends zone I’ve concluded that she’s not asking the right questions.
She’s only asking the questions which will ultimately give her the answer she wants to hear.
Some want to hear she’s not attractive enough.
Some want to hear she did everything wrong.
Some want to hear it’s him not her so they can feel better about themselves.
The real questions which must be asked are without a doubt the toughest ones to answer:
- “Why am I not dating other men?”
- “Why do I get stuck on one guy when there’s so many more men out there?
- “Why am I taking his lack of attraction to me personal?”
- “What can I do to avoid this situation again?”
- “How can I attract more men in my life to so I’ll have more choices?”
- “Why does it feel like I actually enjoy being unhappy?”
And here’s the biggest of all that I know many of you have not even considered…
- “Why do I feel this guy can or will make me happy when he is not doing that now?”
The last question puts this entire friend zone into a perspective most refuse to look at because it hurts to even think about it.
If you are unhappy because someone does not feel attracted to you, what makes you believe you will suddenly become happy if you could make them feel attracted to you?
You just don’t know the answer until it happens and since you have not succeeded in making it happen you may never know the answer.
The misery will continue as long as you believe that one person who can make you happy… will someday somehow suddenly start feeling it for you.
For so long I tried to help men escape the friends zone and kept coming back to the same answer…
You don’t ESCAPE it BUT you can learn to ELIMINATE most of it from your life.
First by distracting yourself from the person you’re attracted to and focusing on developing a happier stronger more fulfilled and completed YOU.
Secondly by learning how attraction works and understanding we have no choice in how we feel.
Lastly by “re-introducing” this new person we created for ourselves to the world of men ( and women ) by changing the past habits of interactions which put us in the friends zone before.
That’s my plan and it works!
It has worked for me even though admittedly the structure ( or steps ) didn’t become clear until after I achieved my success.
Sure you can try “tactics” or “techniques” developed to get you the ONE man you’re feeling the most for and I would NEVER judge you for trying them… For example you can watch this: More Than Friends.
BUT PLEASE I insist…
Make sure you know what questions to ask yourself first.
Make sure you answer them as honestly and objectively as you can.
Make sure you understand what I’ve shared with you today is the REAL truth about the friends zone from a guy who spent most of his life in it.
Make sure you find every real available means to make yourself happy and complete FIRST ( and continue to date other men ) and I believe you’ll find the friends zone just might disappear all by itself.
