Tina Wilson founded the dating app, Wingman and she has a step-by-step guide to getting out of the Friend Zone.
Step 1: Focus On Yourself. Be YOU and let your friend know why you're good together, how you compliment each other. Self-confidence is so attractive, let it shine. A lot of times when we find people we can be ourselves around, it makes for the best relationships
Step 2: Focus on Your Chemistry. Plan activities that you can bond over. A bonus are activities that you can touch sending off those oxytocin vibes.
Step 3: Timing Is Everything. Plan your attack. The worst is when you spew feelings that come out of nowhere and could potentially ruin the friendship.
Step 4: Be True To Yourself. Don't go changin' to appease to your friend. Keep being your true, authentic self, that's why they are friends with you in the first place.
Step 5: Prepare For Rejection. You're taking a risk by conveying your feelings to your friend. Be prepared for the feelings to not be reciprocated. Dust yourself off, fix your crown and move ahead without falling down.
