We've all been there — we said something or did something to upset the woman in our life. Depending on the woman, you might be getting the silent treatment or worse. Ready to end the tension? Try these unique (but out there) techniques to win back her affection.
- Hire A Mariachi Band Or Local Acapella Group To Serenade Her: Unless she truly hates you, this will surely put a smile on her face and have her inviting you back into her comfort zone again. Be sure to pick a humorous or joyful song; go for a sense of fun, not desperation. Alex Greenberg of PriceDate.com (a new dating platform) said, "Keeping the mood light and trying to get her to laugh is a good way to end the tension."
- Pay A Homeless Guy $5 To Hold Up A Sign For Her: If you live in a major metropolitan area, chances are you and your girlfriend regularly walk by homeless people. They would love to have $1, let alone $5. Find a homeless person along the route she usually walks on her way to work. Come up with a witty sign, like "Angela, John would like to apologize for going to poker night instead of visiting with you and your Family. Will you forgive him? — John" Or whatever — be sure to be creative and witty. I guarantee she will get a kick out of this. You might have to show the homeless guy a picture of her so he knows he needs to get her attention, but having her name on the sign should do the trick.
- Propose Marriage To Her At A Baseball Game: This one only works if she will go with you to a sporting event. And if you legitimately want to get married. During 7th inning stretch, half-time or throughout the event, they will often post announcements up on the big screen displays throughout the stadium. Before the game, visit the gaming office where you can tell them to make these announcements, and say that you'd like to make one for a wedding proposal. (Or perhaps just to say hi, if she wouldn't react nicely to a full-on practical joke like this!) Be sure to keep an eye on the big screen throughout the game, so as not to miss the announcement.
- Write Your Message In The Sky: We've all seen this in the movies, but how many people actually have the guts to go through with it in real life? For as little as $100, you can hire an airplane to fly a message to your girlfriend across the sky.
