Re: In comfort, then freaks out!
Jeez, I used to chat up one like that, sh!t tests all over the place... You can't afford to give up ground man, it's an every moment fight
If she says "and you talk about dates, this is not a date", go like "oh no, definitely not a date. It's a bro thing, definitely. Bring up some beer."
Don't stop calling her dude/bro and stuff. Even try to mention at some point that "hey dude, don't make me friendzone you ok?"
And above all, good luck, and may the Game be with you.
Seduction is a martial art. Reading books and talking to experts is important, and helpful. But you won't progress unless you go out there and fight.
