8 Things That Make A Guy Instantly Want To Date You!
How to Go Out with a Guy As Just a Friend
Many girls have amale friendof some sort, but calling up a guy friend to say...go see a movie, isn't as easy as calling one of yourgirlfriends. In the back of his mind, he may be thinking..."Did she just ask me out on adate?" There is afineline between adateand just friends. Hopefully, this article will help you to make sure that the date is strictly platonic; aka...just friends!
Eliminate all awkwardness or conflict.Make sure that you are good enough friends with this guy that it won't sound like a date. If you just started hanging out with this guy for a couple weeks, it will probably sound like a date to him. If you've been friends for a couple years, then it shouldn't be a problem. If your friend isn't single (or if you aren't single), make sure your boyfriend and his girlfriend know that it's platonic.
Make plans.Don't just outta the blue ask your friend to go with you in an hour. Call him when you know he will be home or will answer the phone and ask him at least 2 or 3 days in advance. If youknowhe can't go with you, then don't ask! When you call have an idea of what you want to do. Don't plan the whole thing without him though, make sure you ask him what times, etc. would be good for him.
How to keep plans.Keeping plans with a guy can be hard sometimes, but you have to be flexible. In your mind, have two back up plans just in case. And remember that this isnota date, so if he cancels on you --- don't get too bent out of shape! Be open to the idea of other people coming with you. Don't plan a double date or try to even out the playing field. If two of his friends end up coming and you are the only girl, don't make it seem like a big deal. You're friends so you should feel comfortable around them and not need to even the playing field.
Make sure you pay for yourself, or have an agreement worked out ahead of time about who is paying for what.It's not a date, so don't expect him to pick up the tab! Even so, you were the one who asked him out. On a date, the one who asks pays, so expecting him to pay wouldn't be fair anyway. Since this is not a date though you should each pay your own way, or make an agreement beforehand.
Explain to him why you wanted to hang out.Was your best friend busy and he was the only one around? Have you all not seen each other in awhile? Does he owe you? Just make sure he knows it's not a date.
Make it seem like you have other things to do than hang out with him.Show him that you do not devote all your time to him. Don't be rude, but since it's not a date, you don't have to call him and thank him. You don't have to email him either. Next time you see him say, "Yea thanks, that was a lot of fun!" or something else that you would tell to a friend. Do not say, "We should do it again sometime!" That is a line that may give the wrong message. Since you are friends, you probably will hang out again, but you don't need to tell him this.
How to keep your relationship platonic.A relationship isn't necessarilysexual, passionate,orromantic. Don't spend too much time with your friend, and don't go out with him too often. Spend equal amounts of time with all your friends! Avoid too much contact. You don't have to call, text, email, or IM him all the time. He probably doesn't want to talk to youthatmuch! All things are good in moderation...

QuestionI want to invite my friend over, but I've never done it before. How do I do it? I doubt he'll think it's a date, but I cant figure out how to ask him to hang.wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerThink of something you guys could do together, and ask him specifically if he would like to do that activity.

QuestionWhat are some things to do with a guy best friend at his house?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerPlay video games or watch a movie. Think about what he likes. If he likes eating or baking, make cookies. If he likes board games, do that.Thanks!
QuestionI want to invite him to a party, but he'll be the only boy there. I don't want it to seem awkward, he's my only male friend. Should I invite him?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIf he's your friend, go for it! If you're the one throwing the party, make sure any activities are fun for everyone (no makeovers, etc., unless he's into that). If it's someone else's party, just make sure he feels included with whatever's going on. Tell him ahead of time that he will be the only guy, and he can decide for himself if he wants to go.Thanks!
QuestionThis girl I know is dating someone else, but she wanted to hang with me. She never mentioned her boyfriend, why would she do that?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerMaybe she thinks that's private information and none of your business, or maybe it just didn't come up. She might also have assumed you knew she had a boyfriend (which it sounds like you did).Thanks!

QuestionWhat reasons could there be for why a guy only responds with short texts?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerHe may be playing hard to get, or he may genuinely not be interested in the conversation.

If he repeatedly answers with one or two word replies, just drop the conversation.Thanks!
QuestionI'm going to the movies later tonight with a guy I've dated before. I asked him, and I'm paying for him. I don't know if he still likes me.

Do you feel okay with that?"Thanks!
QuestionWe've been friends for a few months. I'm 38 and married, he's 26 and single. Would it be okay if I ask him out for dinner?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIf you've mentioned to him a couple of times that you're married, it's safe.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I hang with a guy at the mall who I like, but I'm not sure if he likes me?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerKeep things casual. If he likes video games, ask him if he wants to go check out GameStop with you. If he's not into that, maybe just ask him to go to a movie with you. If he asks why you asked him, you can say that your friend canceled last minute.Thanks!
- Make sure if you have a boyfriend or he has a girlfriend, they understand it is NOT a date! It's just as friends!!!
- Don't expect things to "change" into something else, this is for JUST FRIENDS, not for how to get a date or ask a guy on a date. Say it with me...PLA-TON-IC. Platonic.
- Avoid telling too many friends about going out with your guy friend. People canandwill talk, so if you keep it under wraps, then you won't have as much drama to deal with. Don't make it a bigger deal then itshouldbe!
- Explain to mom and dad that boys can be good friends too! They wouldn't have a problem if Brooke or Juliet went to the movies with you, so why would they care if Blake goes with you?
- Just have fun.... but not too much fun!
- Just pretend he's one of your girl friends but don't treat him to much like a girl or he'll think you calling him gay (the awkward boys mind) and just have fun with him but if you have a boyfriend make sure you don't have too much fun with.
- Don't overdress or put on too much makeup. Look natural and express yourself.
- Don't use the world "love," even in the context of a date or a gift. He might misinterpret it as you lovinghim.
- You could possibly invite some other friends out as well. That makes sure he recognizes that it's not a date.
- Don't touch him too much. Flirting is very natural and it's fun,but again - rememberyou're not on a date so constant tackling, pushing, holding hands, hugs, etc. aren't really appropriate!
