Like I said, I prefer to take my time and get to know each other first. Problem is: this has only led me into the friendzone. Obviously, that's not where I want to go. It seems like girls these days want everything to happen right away or not at all. What timeframe does a guy need to act in before it's too late and he gets put in the friendzone?
Most Helpful Girl
Honestly, here's my advice to you and it's honest advice. Make the move right away, don't dilly dally when you're talking with her and if you feel chemistry between you two why hide it?
Now... if you just met a girl and you're having a casual conversation and you're interested in her, make a move the next day or a couple days later, like if you meet the girl in class... but don't wait forever because there's no reason to unless you want to miss your chances. But if you meet a girl randomly at a coffee shop and you guys are exchanging conversation and smiling and flirting just hit her up then and there!
Honestly, you only lose the chances you don't take and if guys are just waiting around and not making any moves it honestly makes them weaker because they start thinking of all these scenarios that may never happen and they just cower away and the "stronger" guy whisks her away and that's why the nice guys I guess miss their chances.
So my advice to you is if you wanna make a move, plan it within a few days or the day of if you are feeling chemistry. There's no reason to wait.
If you get rejected there's probably more reasons behind it than one for instance she's not interested, she has a boyfriend, or she's got financial problems and going through school (I don't know that's just one example).2
