Met this girl. Eye contact, we seemed to make nice small talk. She works near me. Stops in pretty much everyday since our initial meeting. On day 3 while I'm helping a customer, she writes her name and number and "call/text me bro, gotta go to work"
I text same day (I know, I know) and she makes like "who's this" and later apologizes and continues the thread. She'll lead the texting, and I'm not just insta-replying, but sometimes I will, I keep it varied and unpredictable, usually as I reply quicker, she does the same.
Texts are light, but lots of "dude" "man" in there.
I tried to leave her hanging with this idea that I thought she was 'a puzzle' which she went with. Visited me at work and we started talking about this. She was giving some iois like leaning in, eye contact, smiling while I talk, stopping me mid reply to say "we're on the same wavelength" and playing with her hair.
She talks a lot about other dudes, but almost as if they are a different kind of dude (if that makes sense) talks about all these guys that want to get with her but she won't give the time of day to. Says she feels like she can read dude's minds, and goes on about how she's blunt and she'll tell someone they're ugly to their face, etc etc.
I complimented her maturity and said she seemed older (i'm 25, she's 19) and she seemed to like that, and I tried to self-disqualify by saying she was too cute and too similar to me to just be her puppy dog friend following her around (I called her out on having so many guy friends, which she mentioned, basically telling her they all just want to hook up with her, she agreed)
It seems like everything she is saying is friend zone but all the physical stuff is ioi, and she's never come out and rejected me or said anything bad about me. She is usually the one starting text threads too.
What should I do now? Follow up questions welcome.
Also if there's an order that's best to follow with PUA methods, please let me know. I've grabbed a few audio materials and stuff, but I'm certainly not much more than AFC.
