A major reason I always end up in the friend zone is because I never break the touch barrier, even when the girl gives me big hints (keeps "accidentally" bumping into me slightly while walking together). I guess it's because I don't know what I'm supposed to do ... so can anyone give me some good ways an inexperienced guy can break the touch barrier? Thanks.
Also ... is it acceptable to break the touch barrier when you're not on a date and just hanging out?

If a girl is giving you "the signs" ...there are discreet ways to break the touch barrier. if you're on a date and taking her to dinner, you will always open the door for her. By letting her through 1st, you will be the one to open the door and then touch her back (near the small of her waist) to lead her through. If she's "bumping" into you, its okay to put your hand on her arm (like you're feeling her muscle but not grabbing) and say something like "oh I'm sorry, I didn't know you were there" ...or whatver comes to mind.
If you're really close (like in a cab), its ok to just relax and let your knees touch her knees. Or even put your hand on her thigh or knee.
Bottom line: The girl doesn't have coodies. She's not going to think you're a perv if you touch her. Human contact is normal. You gotta be a "take charge" guy. That's what women want. A guy who can make the decisions and be "a man". Be confident in yourself and make it do what it do.4
