Head, Shoulders, Knees, and...Elbows?

Dear Anti-Austins,

Could you please explain the elbow touching thing? I feel like I'm always stuck in the "friend zone", but I hope that some elbow touching can release me. Help!


Dear Kim,
A word about elbow touching:
I used to be horrible at it. Perhaps it was my girl instinct that told me that me elbow touching was THE way to get a man's attention, but that didn't matter. I over analyzed and over thought every squeeze, caress, and touch. That left me with only my eyes and charming wit to flirt by. But the guys I liked never seemed to get that my large fawning stares at their charming selves meant I liked them.

It's crazy, but if you ask any guy how a girl should let a guy know she likes him, I guarantee he'll always say he knows when a girl likes him, because she touches him.

Now an elbow grab doesn't mean you should literally grab onto their elbow and hold on to it with all your might.

Any sort of physical contact will do really. A pat on the back. A squeeze of the shoulders. It all helps.

Hopefully this is what you're looking for! I must say, I feel a bit ridiculous offering an advice since my life is lacking in the love department lately.
But touching elbows always seems to help, though it isn't fool proof by any means...

Best of luck!

I've never used this before because the idea of it always seemed really awkward. You see it in movies all the time, but in real life execution I find it's kinda hard to do.
