    Yeh, all in the title. Too many times, girls see me as a friend material not boyfriend material. So I was looking for some advice

    But I dunno, flirt a bit more or something. You can't make a girl like you as more than a friend.

    Flirt with them more - show them you're interested in more than just friendship

    If your listening to music and she asks to listen to it, tell her no. Girls love guys that are mysterious.

    Sorry :/

    And true...every single girl I like, it seems to be the same old story that I'm a good listener and stuff but they see me as nothing else.

    You need to act confident and make your appearence the best you can, you can't be nice all the time you do need a dark mysterious side but try not to be to creepy.

    This is quite a hard question because relationships are friendship+more, so you do need to be seen as a friend, too! If you know what I mean?

    The difference between a friend and a boyfriend is sexual, to be honest. Flirting is the obvious answer here.
    There's also the aspect of wanting to be close to them a lot. Make sure she enjoys time with you.

    Time with her + flirting = boyfriend material, it would seem.

    look moody...not too moody but a lil moody...and look a lil rugged. Phsycologically (sp?), girls are naturally attracted because they assume you have more testosterone. *Scientifically proven*

    Tease them, insult them without being serious, like "you're fat, LOLZ" is a big no no but light hearted jokes work wonders.

    And don't leave it too long either, after a month or more they usually automatically consider you 'too much of a friend'

    Be more pushy and manly and flirty?

    Not that whole playboy thing but some of it would be ok.
    Girls like indeed nice guys, but a bad boy charm is always a plus :>

    Just say it - lets date - don't wait too long because then u become friend material.

    Easy. Make your intentions clearer from the start.

    Wierdly enough I can do that with my ex - don't ask about her, it wasn't meant to happen and was a whirlwind romance that broke up rather quickly.

    I do think there's such a thing as being too nice...though that's not to say be a first rate douche :awesome:

    Ditto flirty banter - if you intend on being more than friends, don't just treat her like a friend
