I know that push/pull threads have already been done here, but I'd like to state my own experience with it. One girl I was gaming in particular was receptive to it without me even knowing. I did push/pull verbally but it didn't seem to work but I had a GF at the time so she seemed very flirty with me, initiated lots more text, and sent me long replies, essay like for the few weeks or so we were talking. However now that she found out I'm single through FB i'm guessing, she is taking less of an initiative, doesn't text saying I'll be @ x location in x amount of times, texts are shorter, less detailed etc. And she seems less flrity after finding out. Just my 2 cents on it.
