Trust me, you want to learn the tricks and tips on how men bond with a woman, because they are seriously going to help you in the long run.

I’m sure you’ve seen or maybe even been part of a friendship between a man and a woman, and they just have this deep and strong connection that you’ve never seen before. It is the coolest thing to me, to see a man and a woman just vibe, and not in a romantic way at all—just a platonic way. How amazing is that? Some men bond with women so well, and it is incredible.

How men bond with a woman: tips + tricks

In my experience, I have had many men in my life that don’t even consider the fact that they could be forming a stronger bond with me. It was frustrating because we were in a romantic relationship. WHAT?! Thank goodness my partner now appreciates that bonds need to be made in order for trust to be built. Trust is KEY in any relationship. For real.

It is crucial that you understand how to bond with a woman, before even attempting to start a relationship with them–platonic or romantic.

#1 Ask them questions about their life. Showing any sort of interest in them is the huge plus for you, because women often interact with people in general that just don’t care. People too busy with their own lives and problems to care about anybody else. So, if you ask her questions about her life, this is a fantastic start to building a bond with a woman.

#2 Show vulnerability. Since many men are afraid to show vulnerability, this will set you apart from the pack. You could partner this with the last tip I gave, and have a sit down conversation with them. Ask them questions, but be willing to answer them as well.

It is so easy to bond over shared experiences. Likely, once you start talking, you will realize that you have experienced much of the same things in your lives. [Read: The rules to follow to simply be nice to the people around you]

#3 Remember the things that she loves. If she casually mentions something that she loves, take note of it because if you bring it up at a later time she is going to ADORE you. This shows that you actually care about her, and listen to the things she says. It is easy to form a bond with someone that genuinely cares about you and the things that you say.

#4 Think outside of the box. Whether you are dating her or just her friend, do things with her that are out of the ordinary. Don’t just go for coffee, because everybody does that. Go hiking, and watch the sunset together. This might seem like it is overdone, but in reality it isn’t done ENOUGH. This will be a beautiful experience that you will be able to enjoy together, and in the future she will always remember that moment. Bonds are really just shared experiences, remember?

#5 Talk about her goals. We are often afraid to discuss our futures, so when you ask her to talk about it – she’s going to love it. Sharing her goals with you is going to be a great way to build a bond with her. Maybe mention your own goals to her as well. It’s a two-way street, guys. Sharing is caring.

#6 Be genuine. Avoid the glam and the clichés, just be entirely raw and real with her. Women are so overwhelmed by fakeness in this world, from both men and women, and you know what? It’s just nice to have a genuine talk with someone. It’s so easy to connect with someone that is being their true self. We don’t have time for the fakeness, okay? Just be yourself.

#7 Get to know their family. We are where we come from, which means our families. So take the time to get to know her family. This is a huge deal, especially if you are dating this woman!

Many women won’t introduce a man to their family unless they are truly trusting and interested in them. If she is willing to introduce you to her family, you should feel truly honored! Don’t waste this opportunity. Make a good impression, and this will help you build an intense and strong bond with this woman.

#8 Look into her EYES. Eye contact is key. They say it is an invitation to the soul. Well, I suppose that sounds creepy, now doesn’t it? Oh well, it really is true. If you make eye contact with her, especially while having an intimate conversation, then you are going to seriously form a FANTASTIC bond with her.

#9 Be funny. Woman like funny men. This is just fact. So be funny. It’s so easy to connect and bond with somebody who is just genuinely lighthearted and fun. So be that guy for her! Don’t force it if you aren’t a traditionally funny guy, but everybody has their own sense of humor. Don’t be afraid to use it. Even if you don’t think you are particularly funny, just be lighthearted. It comes across the same way. [Read: How to be really funny and make people love your company]

#10 Be a calming person. This has similar effects as being funny. If you are a calm person, it will be easy to talk with you. If it is easy to talk with you, then she will be more willing to open up and share her life with you. And like we already discussed, if she shares her life with you that means she trusts you, which is a direct link to bonding.
