- … way to do this that feels good to him and inspires him to be interested without being manipulative or bad? Just tease a little bit, reward when he pursues you by showing signs of interest back towards him and don’t put in more effort than he is. That way, if he’s doing exactly what you would want, you’re not punishing his “good behavior” AND if he’s not doing what you want, you’re not driving yourself crazy. Again, don’t get carried away with this because it is quite powerful, but WILL backfire if you go too far.
If you can incorporate some of my suggestions into your personal style – great. It will definitely set the stage for him to approach you and “make a move”. The point is not to change yourself at the core – I would never want that for you or any woman. But I do want you to get what you want out of life and relationships, so I do want you to take on strategies that will help you win.
If you do what I’m telling you and he just doesn’t respond, he’s not into you – it’s not meant to be. A bad response can often be better than no response at all – at least if you have a response at all, you’re having an effect on him.
As long as you’re having some kind of effect on him, you’re in the game. If he’s indifferent or neutral, then he’s not interested and you might as well move on. If he is responding, though, you’ll be able to work with how he’s responding and your believe in your own attractiveness will carry you the whole way (provided that you stay on track with truly believing that he wants you and not letting day-to-day situations / bumps throw you off that mindset.)
Hope it helps!
