Your bae awaits you at the end of this post, boys
When we put out the guide on how women can ‘acquire’ the men they love, we realized that there are a lot of mardaana nakaam aashiq around, as well. And because, here at MangoBaaz, we cater to everyone’s love lives, we’re here with another guide for the gents. So dear men, we’ve got your backs. So if you love any ladies, and if you’re tired of using failed pick up lines, again and again, here’s all you need to know in order to get your girl to actually ghaas dalo you:
1. Listen to your bae
First off, you need to be all ears, when she’s talking. Yes, I know she’ll talk a lot. About everything and anything from what Sumera said about her to Ansa and what Ansa had to say back to the fact that her nail color didn’t match her clothes that day and she had severe OCD (don’t roll your eyes, girls, you know we do this sometimes). Always be there to listen to her.
2. Compliment Her
Chances are, she’s putting a lot of effort in to look good for you. And even if you don’t notice anything, just tell her she looks nice.
3. Support her in whatever she does
Whether you think it’s silly, whether you think it’ll fail, long-term, if she’s asking for support, give it to her.
4. Take care of yourself, while you’re at it
Women, in general, are attracted to men that show them they can take care of themselves. This includes everything from smelling good, keeping your body feeling and looking strong and healthy, to knowing how to cook basic food. It suggests self-confidence, and a respect for yourself (which is attractive, trust me, I’m a girl)
5. When you’re together, focus on her
Make her feel like you’re the only two people, even if you’re in a crowded place. Don’t let your eyes wander, keep your phone aside, and please, don’t check other women out.
6. Grow your love for her
You don’t have to wait for an occasion to get her a bunch of flowers, or even one. My dada, without fail for 45 years, used to bring my dadi a single motia ka phool every day, on his way back from his morning walks. Every. Single. Day.
7. Be her knight in shining armor
Look out for her and try to save the day when you can.
8. Don’t be serious all the time
Get her to feel comfortable around you by showing your funny side. Girls like (love) a good sense of humor in a guy. Just don’t channel your inner Johnny Lever…
9. Get in with the fam
Woo her family and friends, too. They’re the first people who will tell her, and convince her, of your worthiness. And if they say no, phir tau aap gaye, beta.
10. Show your bae your sensitive side
There’s no shame in being emotional or giving her a glimpse of your sensitive side. You don’t have to be macho and strong all the damn time, it’s exhausting.
11. Go missing for a while
I’m going to sound like an asshole, now, but..zuroori hai. You need to spend some time away from her and make her miss you for a bit.
12. Surprise your bae every now and then
Girls, women, ladies, females. They all love surprises. In fact, they practice their surprised faces in the mirror, close to their birthdays. So slip a note in her bag, leave her a random voice note if you have access to her phone, change her wallpaper to a picture of you two together (but be careful you don’t get her in trouble). Surprises don’t necessarily have to be full blown parties with hats and balloons. The little things count.
13. Please don’t make her jealous of all the female attention you get
That’s just horrible. Even if she does it. Your love for her needs to be strong enough to not need any other factors in order to prove it.
14. Take care of your bae when she’s unwell
A care package, a get well note, a head massage, bringing her takeout, anything works. This goes a long long way when it comes to wooing your girl.
15. PLEASE TELL YOUR BAE YOU LIKE HER
It will never feel like the right time to declare your love for her. What’s the worst that can happen? She says no. But if she says yes. Socho zara. And in most cases, sahi time ke intezaar mein waqt hi nikal jata hai aur ya tau uska rishta aajaye ga or someone else will come in and woo her.
Do you have any other tested tareeqas to woo your women? Because these ones are pretty damn certified.
