good to hear that me eliminating exes, stalkers and potential stalkers is right :)

Sometimes me and my gf argues that a guy is only befriending her. But my manly instincts says otherwise XD

This article is about how to become a mat for her to rub her feet against. Make her miss you, don't make her take you for granted, keep on the flirting with other girls (but don't cheat!), don't let her turn you into a castrated wussy and most importantly, make her understand that you can still go on without her.

just started a relationship on christmas night. biggest thing is don't try at all. and don't be clingy. like never text. if she text you one words, don't text back. call once maybe a day. make her miss you. your stomach and depressed stage wants to see her, go with that gut feeling and then that leads to desperate obsession. i struggle with this still..

Mike, your comment is right on the money, and I feel you, it really is hard at first... but that DOES mean you are trying hard... who can understand this eh?

Know when to be an asshole and be the man of her dreams that's all it is right there cuz every girl falls in love with the guy that treats them like shit in hopes that they can change them cuz women love trying to change a man and they also dream every night what the perfect guy is. If you can find a perfect mix of that you can keep whoever you want forever broke up or not for the simple fact women cant seem to reason how you can be both and they will constantly try and figure it out. You can even set a schedule be a ass every wednesday an probably still wont notice the pattern just try and figure out why you being mean.

Very good, my girlfriend loved it. Good advice from anonymous12345. And remember, don't be to clingy, ask her questions every now and and again, and HOLD HER HAND. You would laugh at the number of girls I've lost due to not holding their hand, (19 girls!!).
