Learn how to win over her friends with these simple steps
By Kamala Kirk
Congratulations, you’ve made it past the first few dates with a chick. You’re all about her, and everything seems to be going well. She laughs at your jokes, she actually returns your calls, and most important, she’s willing to see you again, which is a sure sign that she digs you back. But don’t get too relaxed just yet. There’s still one more important test you have to pass: getting the approval from her girl friends. This is an extremely important step in the dating process that a lot of dudes struggle with, and if you don’t know how to win over her friends, chances are you’re not going to be in this girl’s life for long. But fear not, because we’ve compiled a list of helpful tips that will help you seal the deal and win over the girl of your dreams.
The most important thing to keep in mind when learning how to win over her friends is this: be genuine. Don’t try to put on a false façade or try too hard to impress her girls, because they will see right through it. Don’t overdo it and try not to overwhelm her friends by trying to become instant BFFs with all of them. It’s one thing to get along and have good conversation with the girls, but when a dude tries to become “one of the girls”, he almost always fails in his attempts to do so.
Be respectful and treat all of her friends the way that you treat your girl. Hold the door open for them, allow them to order first if you’re at a restaurant, and while you’re at it, step up and offer to pay for the first round of drinks. Not only will they appreciate it but your girl will also be impressed that you’re stepping up and putting in a good amount of effort to treat her girls well. Definitely try to engage them in conversation and try to establish some sort of common ground so that you can relate to them. Does her best friend love basketball? That’s the perfect opportunity for you to chime in about your college basketball days and your love for the Lakers, which is key when trying to figure out how to win over her friends.
Another way to successfully win over a girl’s friends is to set up fun group outings where you can invite some of your guy friends out as well. Not only will this give the singles a chance to mingle, but her friends won’t feel like third wheel with the two of you. Also, if one of her friends happens to hit it off with one of your buddies, they’ll be forever in your debt.
