In our Love & Relationships special feature, we proudly announce our new love life columnist Kathy B, who will set you straight on everything you need to know about relationships, sex and the big L word – love! She probes the questions, like: can you really turn a friend into a lover?

There’s nothing like being in love with your best male friend to depress a single girl. So as his stunning blue eyes are boring into you, asking if you think he should call the gorgeous blonde you introduced him to at dinner, give him your sweetest smile before saying somberly, “Well, if it wasn’t for all of the psychiatric problems she’s been having. I’d say go for it.” Even nice girls (over 25 and still single!) play dirty. Yes, it’s childish. But do you want him to be your boyfriend or not?

There aren’t many straight, single and dateable men out there. So, if you truly think he’s the future father of your children, he’s worth getting some dirt under your fingernails for. You already know that he’s the kind of guy you want to get involved with long-term – because you already have been.

The only unquantifiable area of your relationship is in the bedroom. But that’s easily fixed. We are talking about a guy here, right?

Once you’ve gotten rid of the competition its time to examine how you relate to each other. Are you smack-bang-in-the-middle of that too-comfortable phase of hanging out in trackie pants and eating pizza? Don’t kid yourself that you have all the best bits of relationship without any of the complications. Does that reasoning fly when you’re sleeping alone for the second year in a row?

Use your insider position and gather information to turn him on. Does he love women in Levis or does he go for the sophisticated type? Don’t change yourself completely. But there’s nothing wrong with a bit of image manoeuvering in the right direction. Get a trendy new outfit with killer heels, a plunging neckline and a cutting edge, confident new attitude.

Remember when plain Jane Superbrain snared Mike (the even then gorgeous Guy Pierce) with a make-over on Neighbours? He realised that she was the girl of his dreams, not just his, ‘good mate Jane’, overnight. But don’t scare your Mister Wonderful. Remember he already loves you just the way you are. You just want to expand that love to include three times a night shagging sessions.

Trust me, if he doesn’t notice straight away, other men will and he’ll soon follow suit. Pathetic as it is, there’s nothing that will get a guy hot for you quicker than a line of already interested men. This isn’t the time to be shy. ‘Bump’ into him on the way back from a ‘secret liaison’ with flowers in hand and rumpled clothes.
