******** seem to go a long way towards getting their attention.
Well, you can't *make* anyone do anything they don't want to do. If he doesn't see you as more than platonic, there's not anything you can do to forcefully change his mind. I would honestly rather just be myself and not worry about impressing someone. You can't change his feelings, and know that it doesn't mean there's something wrong with you just because he doesn't reciprocate your interest. Enjoy the friendship and stop trying to get him to like you as more...focus on your goals and being happy, you'll be surprised what happens! :)
I think all you can do is be honest with him. With words and without, show him how you feel. Like MaskedMan said, it's a risk. You do have the choice though to follow your feelings and heart. Be well.
You won't need to if you are pretty looking enough, not to be offensive.
*Nature takes its course, men get attracted to women overtime regardless of your appearance, but the extra never hurt. If the guy has been a friend for a while he likes your personality.
The only reason a man may have for never advancing is only because he values friendship with you and doesn't want it to turn sour one day. In essence, sometimes the people who care for you most are the ones who won't sleep with you. I hope you didn't take my first response harshly.
Most of these ppl are right, however, you need to make sure that he knows that you are romantically interested in him. I have had friends who liked me for a long time and I simply never knew. Otherwise I would have given them a shot.
You cant make him. He either will or he wont.
As has been said, guys can't be made to do anything. But SOME guys are just afraid to make the first move. If it comes to a make or break choice, you could lay it on line for him. But you risk everything doing it.
