So, going out to lunch on Tuesday with a HB9
To start matters off, I'm fairly skilled at gaining a girls interest, I just can't hold it for more than a few weeks. With this girl, a one night stand is out of the question, and I'd rather pull off a relationship with her.
However, she's very. enigmatic.
She and I have been friends for a few years now, yet I've not been friendzoned by her. We've gone out to lunch before, and have saw each other once last semester(we went to high school together, but go to different universities). I've brought up dating before, but she said she awkward with dates, and doesn't really date anyone.
Which that part I know is true, she's never had a boyfriend and according to my friends who go to her university, she didn't start dating anyone this past year. She is fairly introverted as well, though not nearly to the degree that I am.
When we went out to lunch, she wore a fairly revealing top, though not something trashy, and she doesn't have much of a rack. Nonetheless, in was quite low cut and plenty of side boob was visible if she turned slightly in any direction.
Recently I decided to test something, I stopped contacting here. After about a week, she started chatting and texting me. She seemed a little more flirtatious than normal.
And As far as chatting goes, she is now sending messages like "backkk" and "iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iidiots" which she has never done before. Typically when girls drag out letters they want to date me.
At any rate, we're going out to lunch on Tuesday, which she seemed fairly happy about.
What the hell do I do? We're probably going to go to Panera Bread or something similar. I told her I was going to be busy that morning and we would need to pick the place and time on Monday probably.
Do I try and pay for it? It's not a place where you order, eat, and then pay before you leave. You order and pay right when you come in.
Clothing, I'll be wearing a pair of khaki cargo shorts(I wear cargoes 365 days of the year, this part isn't really negotiable), as far as shirts go should it be more of a polo or a short sleeve button-down? Tucked in or hanging out?
How do I keep the conversation going? I'm quite fine with companionable silences, but I know I shouldn't let that happen on dates. However, I suck at small talk and we already know each other fairly well. Any Topic suggestions that aren't too common?
What are some IoIs I should look for that wouldn't appear often if she just wanted to stay friends or what not?
And I just remembered something, at one point last summer , her bestfriend came up to me at a party(she was fairly plastered to say the least) and said things along the lines of 'HB9 talks about you all the time. She always says how nice you are to her blah blah blah'
Yeah, I'm the typical nice guy though not nearly as much as I was back then.
Whelp, that is it I think. Well aware I overthink things, but that is how my mind works. I remember small details and don't stop thinking about them until the issue comes to conclusion.
