We see fairy tales all the time in the movies, but most of us don’t believe they’ll ever come true in real life. Those that do are mostly women, meaning it is far more likely to attract a hopelessly romantic girl than a guy who longs for the star-crossed engagements of Shakespeare.
Trying to capture the magic of the most heartfelt scenes from film and stage may seem impossible (it is), yet you can still manage to help cupid’s aim by showing your particular Juliet attention in simple ways, Romeo. Take these four steps and you will set yourself up for the kind of “happily ever after” she’s been dreaming of.
Do Some Research
The first step to really connect with a woman – hopeless romantic or otherwise – is to understand her likes and dislikes. If you have a way to learn more about her favorite flicks or the novels she loves to read over and over, you have a better chance of making an approach that hits her heart just right.
Sure, you can’t turn into a vampire and rescue her from the boredom of her backwoods home, but you can find plenty of tips about what she values – devotion, strength and security, for example. If you then model these behaviors, you’ve positioned yourself as a hero-in-waiting.
Know Your Best Qualities
You might feel like taking on a whole new persona is the right way to impress her, but she’ll quickly realize it’s merely a show. Don’t try to compose a series of sonnets if you have trouble writing complete sentences.
Avoid the temptation to act super-sensitive if you aren’t really the touchy-feely type. When she figures out it’s all an attempt to get on her good side – and she will – she’s more likely to be offended than weak in the knees.
Instead, focus on what you do well. Like providing surprises? Drop roses off and don’t leave your name. You’ll pique her curiosity and the chase will be on.
Make Yourself Known
Depending on what you’ve determined is the best way to reel her in, this can take on many forms. No matter what you do, you want to make sure the process doesn’t drag on for too long – you may end up making her angry or, if you’ve been lending an ear, as a confidante instead of a romantic interest.
In either case, your potential relationship is likely over before it even began. No matter what you decide on, you will have to walk a fine line between tantalizing possibility and over-the-top attention.
Even a basic gesture, like a quick text message to meet somewhere, can be enough.
Keep It Going
Once she has realized you can fulfill her dreams, the real work has begun. You probably thought securing that first date would be the challenge, but the best romances are an ongoing pursuit that lasts a lifetime.
As your relationship evolves, continue to search out ways to demonstrate your affection that play to her sensitivities. Take long walks arm in arm.
Head to Venice just for a gondola ride. Compose poetry about her beauty and kindness. Stoke the fires of passion and she will burn brightly for you every day of her life.
