  • Hey baby you, you got what I need

  • But you say youre just a friend.

  • You say you're just a friend.

  • WellCasters have you been singing that song recently?

  • If ya are. Sounds like youve been friend zoned.

  • Not that I’m happy about it.

  • Sorry I just realized like he he.

  • But hey. If that Austin Mahone guy who's got 2.5 million Twitter followers can trip and fall into the dreaded friend abyss?

  • What’s your average person supposed to do? Well WellCasters.

  • Youre in luck. Sort of.

  • We have some suggestions on how to trade your buddy label for a shiny new girlfriend or boyfriend badge of honor.

  • Now before you get all excited. Please know that these are just ideas.

  • Alright. We can’t make any guarantees.

  • And we're gonna trust that you will use your discretion.

  • Tip one. Be confident.

  • It’s natural to get shy or self conscious around your crush.

  • Especially if youve recently upgraded them from friend.

  • To object of my undying affection.

  • But even if you have to fake it at first.

  • Stand up tall, make direct eye contact and smile.

  • You know like that episode where we told you to be an eagle and not a turtle.

  • I still don't know what that means, but anyway.

  • You get the point?

  • People are drawn to confident people.

  • And wanna know what they have goin' on.

  • The important thing here is that you need to demonstrate that you know your own worth.

  • Before you can expect someone else to recognize it.

  • Tip two.

  • Don’t be a doormat.

  • Respect is an essential part of any relationship.

  • And it's up to you to draw the boundaries.

  • You might be tempted to respond to your crush's every need.

  • That’s natural.

  • But this'll probably backfire as your friend will see you as someone with very very low self esteem.

  • Don’t get yourself stuck in a situation where youre constantly giving rides, buying gifts and ultimately feeling used.

  • Tip three.

  • Don’t put them on a pedestal.

  • Hey. Just like you have a few flaws so do they.

  • We promise. Youre being unfair to your friend and setting yourself up for disappointment.

  • When you discover that they tell the same joke every single time they meet a new person.

  • It's super annoying.

  • Your behavior is gonna show that youre a little overly attached also.

  • When new people come around youre gonna get jealous, youre gonna act weird.

  • Just chill out.

  • Tip four. Do your research.

  • You've probably spent way too much time daydreaming about this perfect relationship with this perfect person.

  • How you'll frolic on the beach and never leave each other’s sides

  • But do you know what their needs are?

  • Maybe they prefer more distance in a relationship.

  • And they need more space.

  • Remember the other person isn’t you.

  • Theyre not gonna meet every single one of your expectations

  • and I’m sorry but neither will you.

  • Especially if you don't take time to figure out what the other person wants out of a relationship.

  • So, ask!

  • Want more tips? Okay.
