Most Helpful Guy
My guy, I hate to tell you this, but you can't just "cut to the chase" with women. A relationship starts with a deep bond, so yeah, expect to be friends for a while before anything serious starts. And if it never starts, accept it and look for a relationship with someone else. DON'T go completely blackout on the girl, because that's a really shitty thing to do. You wouldn't suddenly go cold on one of your bros for seemingly no reason, a girl isn't any different. Remember: you're never in the friendzone if you value having women as friends.
