You know how they say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach? It’s totally true. A good tool to break out of the friend zone is thoughtfulness–and tastiness.
Baking him cupcakes for his birthday or dropping some brownies off when he’s having a rough week will let him know not only that you care, but also that you’ve got some pretty awesome goodies. Just don’t go overboard–he doesn’t need a red velvet cake every week, or else he’ll feel smothered (and may get a gut)!
