The Platonic Friendship Trap.....

One big dilemma Nice Guys usually face is getting lost on the Road to Platonic Friendship far too late for them to get back in the right direction.  As stated earlier, there’s nothing wrong with acts of kindness without expectation of recompense.  However, if your initial efforts at trying to gain the favors of a fair maiden involve fixing broken items, carrying heavy objects, killing vermin, and so on, you’re essentially saying to her PLATONIC FRIEND – DO NOT TOUCH.  Again, this is assuming that she doesn’t have a big initial attraction to you.  The only sure way to know that a woman is attracted to you is that it’s been communicated to you in a direct manner--“Hey, she was smiling at me, and looking me in the eyes…a lot!”  Anything short of this shall be interpreted as Friends Only!

Be conscious of your initial interactions.  The early involvement here is a task oriented one having nothing to do with romance, so the platonic course has been set.   Don’t blame any woman later for leading you on or taking advantage of you if you get things started in this direction.  Any woman can find a handyman in the Yellow Pages, finding a guy that can sweep her off her feet and take her breath away is a little more challenging.  Essentially, by sending out the message that you’re a nice guy and that you’re willing to do favors for a woman, they will be more than happy to oblige your wishes.  You’ve communicated to her that it’s fine to take that course.  Women are quite sharp, but they can’t read your mind.  By failing to effectively communicate your wishes you’ve now dug yourself into the Platonic Grave, and rest assured, there is little hope of ever getting out of it.
