Re: Kiss on First Date? Mystery Method versus La Ruina
don't ignore her, but do make it seem like too busy. i'd frame things along the lines that you keep on forgetting to invite her as soon as you're out and about and get her text. then after the 2nd time you do that i'd suggest saying "looks like i keep forgetting to invite you to all of these cool things, later this week i'm going to XXXX be there at XXXXX. i promise you wont miss out on the fun" my suggestion would be to make this date (don't tell her its a date) sometime around a late afternoon--like 2 hours before dinner or something. sometime where you know shes going to be hungry after not eating for like 4 hours. hopefully by then you've picked some place close to your house where you can go back to. half way through mention you're hungry and you make a mean meal. then take her to your place and feed her a meal if you can cook--this will set the tone to a little more intimate and she already knows whats going on by you being alone with her. this way a kiss is more than likely expected already. plus if you escalate you have a bed or a couch to make magic happen.
ultimately the beginning part where you can be busy--you don't have to do--but have some plans in mind already for what you wanna do with her. make it seem like she missed out and now you're including her. it makes her feel a bit special even if you're doing some mundane things--like buying new shoes, clothes--or if you're brave enough tell her you're going to cook and have her meet you at the grocery store in which your date is there. you're shopping for food because you need to get some--you don't have to include the fact that you're making a meal before she gets there--but the timing there should be that she could just stay longer and eat--and by doing that rapport is build--and it gives you time to escalate.
if timing is an issue i'd suggest just picking something more defined as a date.
Every moment counts, get out of your head and enjoy it.
