How Do I Get Her to Like Me?

Reader Question:

How do I get her to like me? I met this girl on a dating website today. She is a 20-year-old girl and I’m an 18-year-old guy. We both kept chatting for six hours straight, getting to know a lot about each other. She is upset right now that she lost an interview opportunity at a job that she badly wanted. I tried to comfort her and make her feel good.

Besides that, we also share a lot in common. This is my first time with a girl. How do I take it to the next step and further?

Expert’s Answer:

Hello Mishra,

Thanks for your note. While I’d love to give you some amazing tidbits of advice, it sounds like you’re already on your way to success. You say this is your first time with a girl, but it sounds like you know what you’re doing. Just continue to be a nice guy. Like when she lost an interview opportunity for a job she really wanted, you were there to comfort her.

It sounds like you two haven’t met in person yet. That would be a great place to start. Keep chatting online and build a connection. Graduate to chatting on the phone or Skyping and when you think it’s the right time, ask her to meet for coffee. You say the two of you have a lot in common. That’s a great start. Continue to build on that and the sky’s the limit.

Good luck and please let me know how it goes.
