Friendship is a wonderful foundation for any romantic relationship. Perhaps your blossoming romance is stuck in friendship because you are both afraid to lose one another if a romance goes awry. You have to risk something to take it to the next level. You can transform a friendly relationship into a romantic one if both of you want it to happen. Sometimes guys just don't get the hint, so you may have to try transforming the relationship more than once by getting him to notice you as more than just a friend.

Step 1

Mist perfume perfume or fragrant body spray on your clothing before you see him. Males and females are attracted to someone else with all 5 senses. Let your scent linger in the air after you leave. In this case, less is more. You don't want your scent to be offensively strong. Smelling subtly sexy is the key.

Step 2

Get a new haircut and wear makeup. Men may not notice haircuts all the time, but they do notice when something looks new and different. Perhaps seeing you with a different look will encourage him to look at you in a new way.

Step 3

Dress to impress. You may wear comfortable jeans and a tee shirt for hanging out with your pals. Choose a different look when hanging out with him. Dress more deliberately every time you see your guy friend to get his attention. You don't want to change who you are for someone else, but a bit of effort goes a long way at a crucial time in the relationship.

Step 4

Spend some alone time together. Many times girl and guy friends see each other in group settings. With one-on-one time, the focus is on the two of you. Ask him for a ride home, stay late at his parties or ask him to go shopping with you.

Step 5

Touch his arm, back and legs a lot. Do this subtly, flirtatiously, yet harmlessly. When he says something funny, touch his arm while you laugh. When you see him for the first time, lightly touch his back with your fingertips. Observe his reactions to your touch. If he's open to nonsexual touches, your relationship could become deeper.
