Hi everyone, recently been thinking about this question.
Just the matter of being friend zoned by my crush few years back, makes me started to think that:
''it's almost impossible to translate from a friendship (guy n girl) to a romantic relationship, because it may cause awkwardness between both parties, which may lead to losing it.''
Johnny Berba (If you know who he is), is one of the most authentic honest person teaching in pickup& dating. And I DO agree with his opinion on it.
Somehow, when i meet a girl, i put my intention out there, something like, ''hey, i think you're cute (maybe i didn't compliment her at first), but when you're free? I would like to take you out sometimes.''
Where my best intention was put out there.
Some girls may say, ''let's see how.'' , ''i'm free on Monday,'' etc
but most of them reply me shortly, didn't answer my texts or calls at all.
I'm not frustrated, just kinda look at ''this is not my problem, it may due to those girls' thinking.''
I would like to know girls' perspectives on a guy who's trying to be honest & forward with their intentions.
Thanks for reading!

I know you asked for the opinions of girls and I’m sure you got plenty. But let me give you the opinion of a man who was pretty successful at meeting women. Honest and sincere is exactly the right approach. Remember, you don’t want to just meet girls; you want to meet one girl that is right for you. How can you expect to do that if you do not present yourself as you really are?
The key is numbers. Dating is a contact activity. The more contact you make, the greater your chances of success. And you need confidence tempered with humidly. I am fearless. I will walk up to ANY woman and begin a conversation. But I am always humble and respectful.
Guys always think there is some slick line that will get them over. Wrong. You know what the best line is? “Hi, my name is ________. What’s yours?” From there you ask how their day is going, where they are from. Maybe you complement them on something they are wearing and how nice it looks on them---but only if you really like it.
The kind of girl you want will always respond better to earnestness than the most savvy persona.2
