DATING ADVICE FOR MEN - QUESTION:
If you are interested in a girl, do you ever use her friend to get her?
Short and to the point. I like that.
I'm very Machiavellian about this sort of thing. (Look that up in the dictionary, guys.)
You gotta be cunning to get ahead. Mind you, I don't mean to use or mistreat other people, only to use your wits to keep you on top of your life.
There are some advice guys out there that may tell you to follow your heart, or toss out spiritual advice, but they also forget to tell you that you need to have a strong backbone to pin that heart on.
Follow your heart AND your head. They all work together.
Back to the long answer:
YESSSSSS. You use the friend. But not just USE. You leverage her for your betterment.
1. You talk up her friend and make friends with her. Not "acquaintances." FRIENDS. Genuine.
2. Make sure you don't accidentally get the friend into you. I get a lot of guys who do this. How does this happen? You're interested in her friend, so you do all the RIGHT things with the wrong girl, like relaxing, not pressuring her or trying to get into her pants, so she starts to want the guy who isn't trying to push her into a relationship. Funny how that works.
3. Casually mention your interest. Let her friend offer to help you out. Don't ask her to! Let it come about naturally from the goodness of her heart. Remember, you want the friend on your side.
And use any and all means necessary to get the women you want.
That's the ultimate "romantic" statement to a woman.
