A boyfriend is someone special who shares important moments with you.
The process of trying to get a boyfriend can be frustrating at times.
You may have had several close calls that have all led to a dead end.
Here are a few suggestions.
Is This What You Want?
Oftentimes, you may tell yourself that you want a boyfriend but subconsciously you are completely unprepared.
Whether the reason is the need for human companionship, sex or simply to cure boredom, ensure that you are in the right frame of mind for it.
Remember, a boyfriend is a lot more than a fling.
Do you have the willpower and the patience at this moment in your life to make a relationship work?
If the answer to the above question was a resounding yes, then you are truly open to getting a boyfriend.
Going out with your girlfriends is a good start.
This does not mean bars and nightclubs only.
Go to events that lots of guys attend, e.g., sporting events, concerts and car shows.
There is a very good chance that you will meet men there who would love to talk to you.
Also, do understand that by putting yourself in an event that primarily appeals to men, you have already won some of them over.
Develop A Sense Of Humor
If you do not have a sense of humor, it’s time to start working on one. Men love women who laugh at their jokes.
A potential boyfriend will pick you out of a crowd just from your laughter alone.
Developing a sense of humor also helps you relax in social situations where there are lots of men present.
If you already have a sense of humor, don’t keep it hidden, let it out.
Laugh, smile and be happy.
This can be irresistible to the opposite sex, one of whom may well be your boyfriend some day.
Develop A Balanced Sense Of Independence
Being able to look at yourself and be proud of who and what you are is a giant step on your path to getting a boyfriend.
Conveying an air of neediness or even desperateness when it comes to finding a significant other will be a huge turn off for men.
Men like women who present themselves as confident and able. However, there is a balancing act required here.
A woman who conveys the impression that she is doubly independent may lead men to feel like they are not needed in her life.
Even in today’s socially advanced society, men still do want to feel like men.
They want to feel needed and to some extent, be seen as the protector.
Hence, conveying a good sense of independence combined with a slight hint of vulnerability will go a long way in getting you a boyfriend.
Develop An Interest In His Hobbies
If there is a man that you already like in particular and you would like to get him to be your boyfriend, finding out what his hobbies are is an important first step.
Once you know what he likes to do and is passionate about, develop an interest in it.
If he is a big fan of early morning jogs, offer to go with him.
If he enjoys listening to a particular type of music or band, learn more about it and share relevant information with him that he may or may not be aware of.
This will absolutely take him by surprise and he will begin to develop a strong interest in you.
Online Dating Sites
Online dating sites are a great way to meet men.
One of these men may become a boyfriend.
According to a recent study, 1 out of every 5 people who initially met each other on an online dating site enter into a long-term romantic relationship.
These are great odds.
What’s even better about online dating sites is the amount of preparation you can have before ever meeting someone.
By the time you physically meet someone who could potentially become your boyfriend, there is already a good level of comfort and familiarity established.
