The easier way

When you want to get close to a female friend you want her to like you right?
so she has to be happy around you, right?
so if things go well they will start closing in themselves, that way you don,t have to do all the work and it,s a good indication of her liking you more.

for her to start getting close to you, you want her to like your company. try to get in more conversations with her, but only talk when you know what you are talking about... you don,t want to sound like a stupid fool in front of her.

another way to get her to become more interested in you is to become good friends with her friends, help them with stuff, anything really and you,ll see her looking in your direction when her friends are talking about you.
