Hello everybody! Happy to be here.
I realized a month or two ago that one of the reasons things never reached to a relationship level is the absence of touch which is totally my fault. By nature i'm not a touchy person and always had the thought that touching should be done from relationship onwards but reality check and realized that touch should be done long before relationship status. I began to fix this problem by starting off with Kino Escalation.
For the past month i have been kinoing a girl that i have classes with in University. I will pat her on the shoulder or back, while conversing i'll touch her briefly on her hand, while making jokes i'll pat her on the back (between her shoulder blades once in a while) or on her leg if we are sitting down. So far she has responded positively by poking me once in a while, doing brief touches, some are "accidental", leaning on me (mostly her arms) and twice she rested her head on my left shoulder for comfort.
Earlier in class today, we spoke for some time then she left for a meeting. She came back 45 mins later and she called me by the door. When i came up to her, i rested my hand on her shoulder and said "what's up?" We began to converse as normal, but at the start of the conversation, she looked at my arm as if she was reading it and then she locked eyes with me and continued conversation. I was slightly uncomfortable with that "eye-read" but kept my composure. We went movies after and had a great time. What was that "eye-read" all about? is it a sign to calm down on the Kino a bit? or am i over-thinking something which is really nothing as i am new to this?
It's lengthy but i appreciate members reading this and giving a response. Thank you!
