It'd be a short book. It really boils down to just a few things I keep repeating:

1) Have self-respect, don't be a pushover, don't let yourself be mistreated. If you don't like yourself, forget girls for a while and go work on some things. And no girl's worth it if she makes you feel like crap.

2) Have enough respect for her to take no for an answer. Trying again later is better than being pushy/clingy/desperate; persistence can change a girl's mind, but only when it's spread out. But there's nothing you can do to "make" someone fall in love with you 100% of the time, you can only maximize your chances.

3) Don't put anyone on a pedestal. If you haven't dated her, you probably don't know her as well as you think. She may be cool, but there's other cool women out there. You didn't somehow find the only Helen of Troy without anyone else noticing. Why commit to one girl before you're even in a relationship? Don't let your life revolve around someone you're not even dating yet.

4) Be honest/direct whenever possible. If you're deep in the friends zone, it's your own damn fault for not having been open and honest with her about your intentions from the start. Hinting or half-assing it is a recipe for failure. If you show up, show up to play, don't keep one foot on the sidelines.

5) The friends zone is not hopeless, I've gotten out of it before. But doing nothing won't "save the friendship," it'll just grind you down until you can't take it anymore and you have to make a move for your own sanity. There's nothing noble about pining away hopelessly for someone. It's more noble to try even if you fail. Make your play, live with the results either way. Often you can save the friendship after rejection by taking a break from each other anyway.

6) Don't be afraid of rejection. Can't score goals if you won't take a hit. Any guy who gets 10 times as many women as you has probably gotten rejected 20 times as often.

7) "Maybe" = "No" until further notice. Treat them as such.

So there's my book ... how much do I get paid?

It feels weird without the thread being made by pauser and kicked off with him having a typical pauser moment.

Yeah this thread sucks for that reason. Delete it and let Pauser make it.

Pauser is like a hot chick, and this thread is like that fat chick you picked up when you were drunk.

Dude...if you're going to step up to the plate and keep the thread going, at least keep the same first post going (links to all prior threads, as well as mmbt's quotes).

For reals. It's not a Lady Advice thread unless it's got the links + quotes in the OP.

So what's the best way to get over a girl? Right now I've got an elastic band over my wrist and every time I think of her, I snap it. It's not really working so far...

I hate to say this buddy, but your messed up.

Your STILL thinking about her?

Go to a bar, drink a lot, hit on every girl there. Do this over and over. After a while, you will gain confidence with woman and realize if a girl doesn't like you - it's her loss.

The reason your thinking of her all the time is because your insecure about yourself. You need to look inward, instead of outward.

You need to gain confidence.

I honestly think you need to work on yourself before you approach other girls. It just wont work for you at this stage. I can just picture the awkrad approach. You need to like yourself more to gain more confidence. Maybe go to that counseling thing you were considering earlier.

You might want to stop that since I would guess it also has the reverse effect: whenever you notice the elastic band you think about her.

Jeez. My advice is quit getting attached to these women so easily. It's just a girl. If Helen of Troy taught us anything, it's that most of the time the women aren't worth the trouble.
