We all hate that one BFF that tags along with our girlfriends whenever and wherever we go. Even though you know you’d rather die than be with her if she were the last being on the face of earth, you have to put up with her. More so because you know how much influence she has on your girlfriend’s mind. You cannot push her off the scene either. She is the vital organ your girlfriend cannot do without. Your relationship is not in safe hands and you must do all you can to get her ‘soul sister’ to like you. You’re a man and if you can know all about tanks and machine guns, turning the tables in your own favour in this case shouldn’t be too hard. It is your relationship and if anybody should have full control over it, it should be you, not just her.
Girls crave for flattery. Give it to your girlfriend and your way is almost clear. No matter how close she is to your girlfriend, if she feels good around you she wouldn’t really care how exactly you are to her friend. In fact, she might just take pride in the fact that she gets more attention than her friend.
Don’t Overdo It
While we tell you how to win her over, we must also warn you of a girl’s unpredictability. Women are weird creatures we can never totally understand. You may compliment her, but save the more flirtatious lines for your girlfriend.
Act innocent all the time. One mistake or a hint of anything but a good intention and she tosses out of the scene before you can blink an eyelid. Every muscle you move, every word you speak will be judged. Act innocent even if you’re not. Convince her that there is nothing but love in your eyes for her best friend.
You may occasionally kiss your girl on the cheek or caress her face but beware of the devil around. She has come prepared to judge every move of yours. Too much public display of affection may make the BFF uncomfortable and make it to the ‘Oh My God Did He Just Do That?’ list.
Do Not Hit On Her
The situation gets worse when you’re on a date with your girlfriend, but her best friend looks hotter in that tiny dress. You’re looking for ways to get your hands on her. Stop. Don’t ever think of doing that. This one move could ruin your relationship.
Girls love chivalry. All it would take for you to melt her heart is to open a car door or pull the chair for her. Show gentlemanly etiquette not just to her, but to your girlfriend too. Ask her if she is too cold and wants your jacket or if she’d like another drink.
But Don’t Let Her Take Control
While your purpose is to smooth-talk her into liking you, you do not want her to think you’re a pushover. Agreeing with everything she says, letting her decide what you’re going to eat is just going to make her think you’re spineless.

No matter how long the waiter takes to get you the order, or if you find insects in your food, do not raise your volume. She would’ve definitely dedicated a column in your report card to ‘How He Behaves With People Lower In Stature’. Learn how to mince your words around her and always be polite.
