How to turn a boy into a boyfriend

You’re good friends with him but you’d love to be more than that. Is he on the same page or at least open to the idea? Once you’ve figured that out, here are 10 tips to keep in mind so that you smoothly progress from friends to power couple.

Stop calling him friendly nicknames. How you communicate with the guy needs to change if you want to become a couple instead of getting stuck in the dreaded friend zone. So, enough with calling him your buddy or dude. That will just make it feel like you’re still just friends.

Get your flirt on. Once those friendly nicknames are out of the way, try to be a little flirtatious with him. This will set the scene for a more romantic situation. Of course, you don’t want to overdo it if you’re not sure if he reciprocates your feelings. It’s also good to take things slow so you can adjust to your new way of being with each other, especially if you’ve been friends for ages. Pace yourself. There’s time!

Step out of your sweatpants. Sure, wear your sweatpants when hanging out with him – if you want him to keep viewing you as his little sister or platonic friend. It never hurts to show him a bit of a sexier appearance in the same way that you’d be wowed when you see how well he’s cleaned up. Just make sure that you hold onto your own style.

Change your plans. If you two are always hanging out at the nearest coffee shop, that screams friendship. You need to take things up a notch by planning activities that are a little more romantic so that you can both explore those different sides of yourselves. Go for drinks, head down to the beach for a moonlit walk, or have dinner in a cozy candlelit restaurant.

Compliment him. Don’t pay him lip service, but find a compliment that’s more meaningful than telling him he looks juicy in his outfit. For example, tell him that you love how he makes you laugh on your bad days or that his work ethic makes you want to strive to achieve your dreams. This will focus on the bond you have and highlight the value he brings to your life.

Choose one-on-one dates. If you guys are always spending time in a group setting, it’s time to change that. You need to have quality time on your own. The next time he invites you bowling with 16 other people, suggest that you do something with him alone instead.

Leave him wanting more. At the end of your time together, make sure you leave on a high note when the wine’s still flowing and the conversation is following suit. This will ensure that you stay on his mind and leave him craving more of your delightful company.

Focus on the rest of your life. You should be paying attention to the other parts of your life. Not only does this prevent you from putting all your energy into this guy, but it will show him that you’ve got a full life. You can see how the dating advice that you’ve followed with guys who weren’t your friends should also be used on a friend you want to become your boyfriend. It might just take a little longer to ease into using it – it’s all about that smooth transition!

Drop a big hint. Let’s be real: making the transition from friends into something more can be tricky. This is why you have to drop a hint. It has to be big enough to make him think, “Ooh, what’s going on here?” but not too big that you feel you’re putting yourself out there too much. This will help you both to see that there’s romantic potential and interest. After all, he might need the hint before making his move!

Don’t be too available. While it might do no harm to your friendship to see the guy five times a week, that was when you were buddies. Now that you’re moving into a relationship (hopefully), you need to do things a little differently. Be a little mysterious and don’t make yourself so available to him all the time. When he sees you less, he’ll want to see you more – and he’ll start seeing you more as a possible girlfriend than a friend he can just hang with.

How to turn a boy into a boyfriend

Imagine this: You meet a guy in a studies class and he’s absolutely amazing. The two of you have been on several dates and you have been hitting it off really well. There seems to be a potential for things to progress although you agreed to his suggestion to not get serious too quickly. Things aren’t exclusive yet, but you have high hopes. Then the terrible reality hits, you find out that he’s a player. A friend that that knows him fills you in on some of the dirty details about how he is and since she has mentioned it, it starts to make sense why he won’t add you on Facebook.

All your girlfriends would suggest to stop seeing him immediately, but you don’t want to give up just yet. It’s been said a million times before that you can’t change someone, but you still think that this will be different and can’t help but wonder, ‘What if I can beat the odds and somehow inspire him to commit to me?’ You aren’t sure if it will happen, but you’re feeling up for the challenge.

Before anything else, it needs to understood that there are two main types of players in the dating world; 1)The ones that genuinely don’t want to commit to one girl for the time being and 2) The ones that are only playing the field because they think that’s what guys their age are supposed to do.

The latter are guys that may actually want to have a more serious relationship with one girl, but they have gotten this idea that younger women don’t want to settle down either. They assume that since everyone their own age seems to be hooking up as opposed to having a monogamous relationship, they might as well just do the same. These pseudo-players are the ones that have the potential to be turned into great boyfriends.

You have to understand that guys are players with girls that they don’t take very seriously. A player might like a lot of these girls, but he knows he’s not going to be settling down with any of them. For this to change, you have to encourage him to see you as better than these girls. You have to show him that you are different and that there is a reason why he should commit to you.

  • Make an impression. Show him a little bit of everything you have to offer. You are intelligent, hard working, and level headed. You can make one hell of a steak dinner, fix your own car, love camping, and you kick ass at bowling too. Guys love a girl that knows a thing or two about a variety of things in life.
  • Keep an air of mystery. Don’t reveal everything about yourself all at once. A guy will be much more interested in a girl that is always surprising him with her wit, brains, talents, changes in style, etc. When you talk about yourself, stay humble and then show him how great you are through your actions. It will also leave him wanting more.
  • Don’t be at his beck and call. He has to know that you aren’t someone he can manipulate into running to him whenever he wants. That means, don’t let him booty call you in the middle of the night or ask you to come over to his house on a short notice. Doing so will only reveal that you are just another girl he can play with. You want want to earn higher respect than that.
  • Read up on pickup artist material. Many players are into the game aspect of being a pickup artist. It will benefit you if you have an insider’s knowledge and get a head of his game. That way, you can dodge his bullets and and even send them flying back if necessary. This will show him that you won’t be played and are above the other girls he knows.
  • Have a life outside of him. Guys are attracted to girls that can be happy with or without him. You don’t want to seem clingy but you also don’t want to appear not interested. Let your guy know that you like him but he isn’t the center of your universe. You will still make time for family, friends, school, work, and your hobbies.
  • Hold off on sex. There’s nothing wrong with casually hooking up as long as you know what you are getting into. However, if you want your guy to take you seriously, it’s a good idea to take yourself seriously. Many men are more reluctant to commit to a girl if she sleeps with him right away. Making him wait will prove that you are good for more than just hooking up.
  • Stand by him and be supportive. A guy will be impressed with a girl that shows him that she is on his side. Encourage him to do well in school school and with his extra curriculars. Cheer him up when he’s had a bad day. Show him you are truly interested in his life and that you will really be there for him when he needs someone.

If all else fails, it might be time to let this one go. You don’t want to invest very much time into a guy that isn’t that invested in you. It all boils down to a very real truth that a guy can only change if he wants to change. If he’s dead set on being a player, then he will continue to be one until he feels he has had enough. Then one day in five to ten years, you will probably unexpectedly hear from him. He will tell you that you look great and he might even ask you out. At that point, the tables have turned and it’s your call on whether or not he’s the one that’s worth it.

How to turn a boy into a boyfriend

Men are visual creatures, there’s no denying it.

We see it in the way ads targeting men are often sexualized, and study after study proves that men have more drastic brain responses to visual stimuli than women.

That’s why we weren’t surprised when, in a 2018 survey sponsored by PornDude, visual images came in as the number one way to turn a guy on by a longshot. 58 percent of men agree that things like photos and video are the best form of foreplay.

It makes sense, then, why guys are so into porn. The survey revealed that 88 percent of men get turned on by porn — whoa! The visuals porn offers gets guys into the headspace they need to get in the mood, a fact that they’re well aware of. 67 percent of the men surveyed admitted that they watch porn regularly. And long gone are the days of raunchy magazines and XXX stores (though those still definitely exist). These days, accessing porn is a whole lot easier thanks to websites like PornDude.

Don’t let this upset you, though. While some people might worry that their partner is watching porn while in a relationship, he’s likely not doing it because you’re not enough. It’s just how he gets himself going.

When it comes to people, however, there are three main things guys can’t get enough of.

The first thing they notice? Your body. 35 percent of the men surveyed said bodies are the biggest turn-on in another person. 20 percent of men narrowed it down even further and said faces turn them on most.

But don’t worry, guys aren’t totally shallow. Personality came in at second place behind body, with 32 percent of men claiming a woman’s personality is a game-changer when it comes to being turned on.

So if you’re wondering how to turn a guy on, looks like you don’t have to try too hard. Hint: you can even turn his porn-watching habits into a great form of foreplay for the both of you. In fact, 62 percent of men revealed they’d totally be open to watching porn with you, while another 25 percent said that they might, depending on what it actually was. How’s that for a date night?

How to turn a boy into a boyfriend

Everybody loves cuddling. It’s nice as it is. But you can always spice it up sometimes.

Here are some simple things you can do when you’re cuddling with your man to turn him on. Use them at your own risk 😉

Press your body closer to his

You’re probably already close to him, but you can get closer. All you need to do is scoot toward him so your body is firmly pressed into his. If you’re spooning this should be easy.

If you’ve been spooning a while he will have gotten used to the feeling of your body next to him. So this way you can remind him you’re there 😉

Put his hands where you want them

Take his hands and move his arms to wherever you want. You can wrap his arms around you more, or hold his hands, or put his hands on your waist. If you want to tease him here you can ever-so-slightly let him feel your chest.

Or you can take the less subtle route, if you know what I mean. Up to you.

Be revealing

Let him see just enough of you to be turned on. A bit of skin or a glimpse of what you’re wearing underneath. Ideally you want him just slightly distracted from whatever else you guys are doing.

Stroke his hair

Reach up and gently run your fingers through his hair. You can do it as few or as many times as you feel like. If you’re little spoon you’ll have to glance to make sure you don’t poke his eye while you’re reaching back.

Stroking his hair is an intimate way of touching him. It’s not the most erogenous area, but just the act of touching him will start arousing him.

Put your hand on his body

Instead of waiting for him to touch you, start touching him while the two of you are cuddled. You can build anticipation by gradually working your way along his body toward his favorite area(s).

Try going under his shirt with your hand. It will have him dying to see where you’re taking this.

Say something dirty

You don’t even need to touch him to turn him on while you’re cuddling – you can do it with your words! Men love it when their woman unexpectedly says something flirty or sexual to them.

If you’re not used to dirty talk, don’t sweat it too much. Just whisper whatever it is you’re thinking about right now. What do you like most about cuddling with him? What are you imagining him doing to you?

Unbutton or unbuckle

This is a sure way to tease him and let him know you want to escalate things. It’s pretty straightforward, too 😉

Remember, men love being surprised. If you unexpectedly undo one of his shirt buttons, unbuckle his belt, even unbutton his pants… it will drive him absolutely crazy!

Wear perfume

Most men like the smell of good perfume. If you’re wearing a little bit he will be taking in your feminine smell all night and that will arouse him. Doubly so if you have a perfume you usually wear. A man will be turned on just by the smell of you on his clothes, so make sure he gets plenty while you’re cuddling.

Yup, you’re effortlessly cute as hell.

You come home from a tough day at work, exhausted with absolutely everything. Feeling desperate, you speak directly to the universe, telling the power out there that you want to experience a major change in your life. Then, just like that, your gender completely changes, and you’re now a girl. Maybe not the change you were going for – or would you love it? This ‘transform into a girl quiz’ is for guys, obviously.

To be fair the guy following you till home is kiiiind of a creep to say the least.

Yeah it would be fun to change for one day to see the other side of the coin but we have more problems than you have

A Cork man who made life a “living hell” for his former partner and her children will be sentenced next month.

A jury unanimously found the 56-year-old man guilty at a trial earlier this year of 58 charges, including two counts of raping his then partner and 50 counts of sexually assaulting her.

He was also found guilty of four counts of sexually assaulting her son and one count of raping the boy. The child was aged between nine and 11 when his mother’s then partner raped him.

The man was also convicted of charges of cruelty towards her children. The offending took place between October 2013 and December 2015.

The man, who cannot be named to protect the victims’ anonymity, denied all the charges.

Victim impact statements made by the accused’s former partner, her son and daughter were read out by Shane Costello SC, prosecuting during a sitting of the Central Criminal Court today.

In her statement, the defendant’s ex-partner said she had been a “strong and independent” woman before meeting him, but he had taken away her identity.

The defendant had seemed nice at the start of their relationship, but this was “all for show”.

She said she had done her best to protect her children, but this was impossible as the defendant was always in control.

She found it “heartbreaking” that she could not get to her children as the defendant locked the internal doors of the house.

She said the defendant was a “sick monster” for his behaviour towards her “innocent” son.

Following the end of the relationship, the defendant had stalked her, leaving her terrified. She said she regrets bringing the man into her family’s life and suffers from nightmares.

Her daughter, now in her 20s, said in her victim impact statement that the defendant never showed her any affection and the family home was like a “prison”.

She said he made her life a “living hell” while she was studying for the Leaving Cert and she thought her life was not worth living.

She found the trial emotional and scary, but she now felt free because the defendant could no longer control anyone.

Reading his own victim impact statement, her son, now 19, told the court “no child should have felt like I did”.

He said he considered the defendant to be a father figure and the defendant had broken that trust.

He said he was standing up for himself after feeling isolated within his family because he was carrying a secret.

He asked for justice “not just for me but for the child I was”.

Thomas Creed SC, defending, told Mr Justice Michael McGrath that the defendant does not accept the jury’s verdicts.

In evidence during the trial, the defendant said the three children had been difficult during their early years and their mother used the allegations to get help to find alternative accommodation.

Eleven character references were provided to the court on behalf of the defendant. These included statements from friends, neighbours and people who had worked with the man.

Several references described the defendant as a “caring father” and a good friend.

One said they had never found the man’s behaviour to be inappropriate and added that he was a “dedicated family man”.

Mr Creed said the defendant had a reputation as hardworking and had worked in a variety of jobs. He loves his children and is anxious to provide the best for them.

Mr Creed said the defendant is disappointed that he is not in a position to be a full-time father to his four younger children.

Mr Justice McGrath adjourned the case for sentencing on July 7, remanding the defendant in custody until this date.

The trial heard that the man’s ex-partner had been in a relationship with the defendant and moved into his home, along with her three children. The couple went on to have four children together.

She said she and the defendant were in bed on an unknown date around Hallowe’en 2013 when he started to grab at her. She told him to stop, and tried to push him away, but he raped her.

Their relationship became tense and the woman said the defendant tried to touch her breasts and genitalia on a regular basis during 2015.

On a date between September and December 2015, the first victim said she felt the defendant snuggle into her while they were in bed, and she felt his penis against her.

She shouted at him, but he continued to attempt to have sex with her. She left the room and slept in the hall.

Her daughter gave evidence during the trial that she hoped life would improve when the family moved into the defendant’s house, but this was not the case.

She said the defendant would fly into a rage to demand the house was cleaned.

On one occasion, he pulled her from bed and ripped her belongings from storage. He did not allow her to sleep until she had tidied everything in a certain way.

She said the defendant keep the internal doors locked and she would have to ask for permission to use the bathroom.

The defendant would often rip up her copybooks and tell her to start her homework again.

The woman’s son gave evidence at trial that the defendant had kicked and punched him.

He said the defendant touched his genitalia while he was in the shower following sports training on several occasions.

The defendant also got into the shower with him on one occasion.

The woman’s son said he woke one night to find the defendant naked on top of him, trying to perform a sex act. However, this was interrupted when his mother entered the room.

The court heard that the defendant’s former partner was not aware of the gravity of the man’s behaviour towards her son until the trial.

The court also heard from several other witnesses during the trial, included a retired garda who observed the defendant held the keys to the family home’s internal doors.

How to turn a boy into a boyfriend

You’re already a showstopper, a goddess, and yes, intimidating in every way — in a good way. But sometimes your crush needs a little push.

1. Be Confident

Like a siren, you need to exude confidence. When you’re comfortable with yourself, imagine how smoothly each and every conversation with any potential hottie can go.

2. Give Him the

Hold your gaze across the room for three seconds to give a welcoming smile and look away, totally giving him/her the

(just don’t wink — I promise you first hand, it’s weird and harder than it looks).

3. Let Your Body Language Say It All

Sometimes, your actions can speak louder than word. Lean toward your bae while you’re talking, or subtly bat those eyelashes (without blinking like you’re having an allergy attack), and keep your chin out — it exudes confidence.

4. Show Interest (And Realize Disinterest)

You may be able to feign interest in class and get away with it, but in social situations, there’s nothing more obvious than when your eyes glaze over. If you’re really into someone, show it! If you’re not feeling the sparks, don’t settle or deny it to yourself — move on to the next!

5. Make It Known That You’re Available But Also Have Your Own Schedule

During a casual conversation, make a subtle comment that eludes to the fact that you’re single and interested. Mention a FUN single girl thing you love to do, like, “I’m so happy about having more time to hang out with my girlfriends.” Independence is sexy and it shows you’re laid-back and not in a rush.

6. Be Yourself While Maintaining Some Mystery

There’s nothing more charming than being yourself, but make sure this person is worthy of knowing you. Part of your mystery lies in withholding information, so don’t give up the names of your future children just yet.

7. Don’t Play Games

Avoid sending elusive texts or timing back your response, or doing things like asking if they think your friends are pretty, etc. — this isn’t Maury, so no drama necessary.

8. Do Something Fun Together

Do something active next time you hang out — a hike, a walk on the beach, or a rollercoaster ride. Any experience that generates excitement and creates

is not only fun but memorable too. Your crush will associate you with a good time and a fuzzy feeling in his/her chest. (This is like, science, btw.)

9. Compliment Your Crush

But don’t be fake about it. It’s hard to forget someone who genuinely thinks you’re a good person with great taste. Compliment their style and laugh at their jokes (even if they are a little cheesy). You’ll feel better from it, too!

10. Don’t Be Afraid To Text

If you really like this person, it’s ok to text them! Just keep your cool and text like you would a normal friend.

11. Get It Together, Girl

Perhaps the most important way to get your crush is to get it together yourself. Figure out what you want in your bae, not what that person wants in you, and the ball will always be in your court.

How to turn a boy into a boyfriend

Turning a friendship into love can be challenging, especially if you’re unsure about your friend’s feelings for you. Falling in love with a friend can be a promising prospect, but making a transition from friendship to romantic interest requires precautions before you take the leap. Moving beyond a platonic relationship changes the entire dynamic of your interaction. Ultimately, if your romantic involvement fails, you risk the possibility that your friendship will significantly change.

Identify your feelings. Take some time to distinguish between the platonic feelings you have for your friend and those of a romantic nature. Social worker, professor and author of “Buddy System: Understanding Male Friendships,” Geoffrey Greif, says that “Men often feel more comfortable disclosing intimacies to women than to men,” so determine whether you’re mistaking the intimacy of friendship for something more before you disclose your emotions.

Examine your options. Ensure that you have evaluated the possible benefits of revealing your romantic interest against the risk of losing your friendship. Revealing your romantic interest in your friend can take an immense amount of courage because you’re exposing yourself to the possibility of being rejected. On the other hand, taking the risk and exposing vulnerability may facilitate a strong foundation for a loving relationship. Psychologists Charles D. and Elizabeth A. Schmitz, writing for, say, “If you wait to make a commitment until you have no doubts, it will never happen.”

Address the changes to the dynamic of your friendship. Develop a mutual understanding of how your relationship may alter your interaction. Author and professor at the University of Cambridge Terri Apter says, “Friendships between women and men are often passionate, and they are rarely simple. Like all human attachments, they involve a range of emotions.” Discuss the physical and emotional changes you will encounter in the transition and agree to remain friends if the romantic relationship is unsuccessful.

Refrain from moving too fast. Make time to develop the romantic side of your relationship. Resist the temptation to rush into an intense relationship. Learn about each other from this new perspective, psychiatrist Paul Dobransky says. Your interaction is going to change. Give your feelings some time to progress from platonic to romantic ones.

Nurture your friendship. Remember to maintain the bond you shared as friends before the romantic relationship. Recall the significance of the times you’ve spent confiding in one another, crying on each other’s shoulders or laughing together. The Schmitzes emphasize that “the person you commit to must, first and foremost, be your best friend. You cannot make a lifetime commitment to someone you only love. Lifetime commitments are made to those we consider our best friends!”
