Practical Ways to Get a Girlfriend

Sure, we've all heard the horror stories about the ways men have attempted relationships. Obviously to start a relationship you have to start talking to a girl first, and this is where most men mess up. There are ways to get a girlfriend, and ways to embarrass yourself. To avoid the latter I've jotted down some quick advice.


Silly, I know--who am I to tell you how to dress? Well, I'm not going to force you to do anything, but I am going to tell you what women look for. As different as we all are there are things that are important to all of us.

Open your closet and evaluate what's inside. How old is everything you own, does it fit properly? How do you feel when you put these clothes on? You should feel good about yourself, your clothes should fit and look nice. If you can't tell which way is up and you're ready to have a meltdown--don't. Go to a local store and pick up a copy of any decent men's magazine. GQ and Maxim are famous for their men's clothing sections, so start with those. Just to get an idea of what's in style.


Take care of yourself. Shower at least once everyday, and before anytime you go out. Wear deodorant and cologne, regardless of if you "think" you need it or not. Brush your teeth and use mouthwash. Make sure that you're looking and smelling great.

Regardless of where you go always have gum or mints handy. Anytime you get done with a meal or have had something to drink pop one in, fresh breath is a necessity. I can't even tell you how irritating it is when a guy is talking to you with bad breath, disgusting.


Keep conversation with women light and appropriate. There is something called a "comfort zone" and if you breach it you're going to lose the interest of any women you're talking to. Never share too much information about yourself, we don't care to hear anything about: sex, drugs, bad habits, your best-friends-cousins-sister-in-law, how hot we are, or why we should go out with you. ALL are inappropriate, instead you should stick to simple things such as: surroundings, work, what does she like to do, music, friends, etc...

If she's with friends engage them in conversation as well. One of the worst things you can do is try to single her out from a group. This puts her on the defensive, and when that happens you've lost her.

If you want to get her number but aren't quite sure to do it don't panic, you need a plan. What are your plans for the weekend? Invite her along with friends to go somewhere public and do something fun. The world is a scary place for a woman she's not going to accept a random date from a stranger, she has to feel comfortable.

Say something like, "My friends and I are going to the park this weekend, they're having a concert and some other events it's supposed to be fun. You're more than welcome to come with us if you want, and you should bring your friends too. Here's my number..."

You're on your way now. All you have to do is take things slow and build a foundation. Relationships don't form overnight so keep that in mind.
