Steps of toasting

If you frequently ask, How do I toast a girl our advice will probably work for you. “Professionals” of flirting propose the following steps:

  1. Time. It's obvious – to make any girl like you, it’s necessary to pass time with her. There're a lot of men who're mistaken thinking, it’s helpful to avoid a woman you love. Such strategy may be useful only in the cases, when you know she already likes you. Otherwise, try to become an essential part of her life. Thus, she’ll finally start feeling lonely or incomplete without you.
  2. Compliments. It probably sounds old-fashion, but try being a gentleman. Chivalry should become a part of your nature. Pay much attention to her, talk to her, and tell her pleasant things. There's no woman who will dislike it. Don't forget, each time you make a female blush with delight, that's one step to making her fall in love with you.
  3.  Remind of yourself. There exist many ways for it. Buy pretty things, text and phone her, or come to see her. It’s essential to make a girl think of you.
  4. Being dependable. It is so important for any girl to know, you're ready to help and support her any time she needs. Besides, it'll make her think about you even more. Do everything possible for her to feel special, and she’ll feel grateful for you being around.
  5. Being open and sincere. Any communication actually needs it. To make the connection closer and stronger, share various incidents of your life, your feelings and problems. While you reveal your vulnerable side, your partner will do the same even without noticing it. Such strategy makes the girl emotionally attached.
  6. Avoid friendzone. It's extremely important thing. Remember that your purpose is not friendship. There's very thin border between a best male friend and a man, who’s going to become a boyfriend. There's great number of examples of men, who've just missed a chance. Thus, to avoid it, constantly say you like her and find attractive.
  7. Flirting. This is inevitable part of wooing. Tease her. Moreover, it's necessary to have sense of humor as well to make the time spent together great and unforgettable. Besides, it'll be helpful touching her accidentally and keep closer to create sexual chemistry.
  8. Let your girl know you keep thinking of her as well. For any girl it is so complimentary. You can say, you've recently thought of her when listening to her favourite song or watching a TV show. It will catch her and make think of you.
  9. Hints and suggestions. You shouldn’t tell directly about your affection. However, you can still give tiny hints. For example, while talking to her friends, mention any detail you like in her. Then, don’t tell anything else. Her friends can find out there's something between you and start teasing you as couple.
  10. Asking out. We are finally here. If you've done everything right, you're ready for the last step. By this moment, the girl should realize there's something more between you. Moreover, there must be kind of sexual tension. So, ask her out. Then, when there's an appropriate moment – tell about your feelings.

These are the key steps to win woman’s heart. It’s essential to do everything right. Let her know there exists something more serious than just friendship. Don't forget to avoid friendzone. All the rest depend on you and the woman you’ve chosen. Sometimes, when the relations develop quickly, you may miss some of the steps or go through them a bit faster.
