1. Haunt her periphery
Begin your seduction at an indirect angle. If she learns your true intentions too soon, the chances are good her barriers will shoot up. Cultivate a relatively neutral relationship that will lull her into feeling secure with you.

2. Make like Oprah and enter her spirit
Play by her rules and indulge her every whim. Chivalry is king. Adapting to her moods gives her nothing to defend or resist. Instead she will feel at home with you and lower her guard.

3. Create a sub text
Never use crude language upfront. Plant ideas by dropping elusive hints that take root in her mind hours later. Combine ambiguous or suggestive comments with alluring glances. Follow bold statements with a retraction or apology.

4. Become a man of mystery
Most men are way too obvious. Become more enigmatic. Stir her interest by sending mixed signals. Master the art of insinuation.

5. Fire her desire
Awaken her senses by combining nonchalance with a charged sexual presence. Never force anything physical. Instead lure her into lust, let her believe she is seducing you.

6. Be unpredictable
The moment a woman knows what to expect from you, your enchantment becomes tarnished. Keep her in suspense then thrill her with a sudden change in direction.

7. Intrigue her
Lofty declarations can raise a woman’s suspicions. Disarm her instead with thoughtful gifts tailored just for her or subtle gestures that show how much attention you have been paying her. Any restraint on her part will soon be flung to the winds.

8. Make your move
The moment has arrived. You can tell she clearly desires you but is not willing to admit it openly, let alone act on it. She stands closer to you. She looks into your eyes. Overwhelm her with a bold move. Gently draw her towards you, kiss her on the mouth. Provided you haven’t misread the signals, she’s yours for the taking. However, if she slaps you in the face, it might be prudent to leave quietly and find yourself another, more willing target. Practice makes perfect!
