In the teenage dating world, there are a lot of guys who get a lot of dates, a large group of guys that get a few, and a pretty sizable group that will go through high school without so much as kissing a girl.
Simply put, a lot of these guys aren’t very good at dating. They might even be good looking. However, it doesn’t take away from the pain of being dateless. But, you can learn and change. Here are four reasons why teen guys fail at dating.
They Don’t Flirt
Women are naturally good at flirting, at least most of them. A large number of men aren’t even aware that guys that guys can flirt! So, they don’t do it. Girls are showing these boys that they are super interested in them and the guy is clueless!
Some guys know how to flirt but think it’s stupid. That attitude keeps them dateless. Even tough guys who get the women can be slick and flirt when they need to.
They Friend Zone Themselves
It’s bad enough being friend zoned, but most guys put themselves there. They don’t flirt, they act creepy, or they do a bunch of other things that put themselves in the friend zone. The main way teen guys friend zone themselves is by never “closing.”
They think that a girl is going to ask them on a date or take the lead on things like kissing. Rarely does that happen. It’s the guy’s job.
They Act Like Girls
Friend zoning typically occurs because boys, surprise, act like the girlfriend of the girls they like. I know guys who try to impress girls by pretending to like everything the girls like. They pretend they enjoy Justin Bieber, Twilight, etc.
But, that doesn’t work because girls want to date a guy. If you like those things, then be yourself. But, don’t pretend you’re someone you’re not to impress a girl, especially if you’re pretending to like girly things.
They Try To Bribe Girls Into Attraction
Think of an ugly girl you’d never date. If she bought you an X-Box game would you date her? You’d probably friend zone her and take the game. The same is true of a girl. If you buy her stuff, give her flowers, compliment her, etc. and she isn’t attracted, you won’t make her more attracted to you. She’ll take your stuff and leave you in the friend zone.
So, don’t make these mistakes. Get a date and be a part of that group that gets all the girls.
