I dated a woman for about 6 weeks, we came closer, kissed, kept in touch daily etc. Things went exactly like they should. However, when I wanted to seal the deal she backed off even though I'm sure wanted it too.
She told me afterwards that she doesn't want a relationship and doesn't want to meet me on a "weekly basis", I told her that I don't want friendship. So the expectations were clear and at that point I thought I'd never hear from her again. As I once told her that I will NEVER EVER run after girl I wouldn't have contacted her again either. But...it didn't take a full week when she got back to me, shortly telling me that we should "forget what happened" and told me about stuff she experienced meanwhile. I replied in a polite, non-flirty way.
I don't know the reasoning (she lost interest all of a sudden, she is playing, games, she is battling with her own emotions (self protection), she is bored, combination of those) but unfortunately for me she touched my heart which has not happened for some years.
At the moment I intend to:
-not initiate any contact, only react
-not call her
-definitely not ask her out
However, looking at this list basically also means dropping her completely and the fact that she got back to messaging me indicates "ok I needed to increase the distance but I'm still here".
I know that it's not pua related literally but maybe some insights from a pua perspective? Strategy? I want her but as stated I will not run after her so it's a tough call for me (showing that I'm still interested vs. creeping)
So let's see if I can really get some solid advice as the forum title promises
