Re: Mixed signals, texting vs 1on1 game, what am i doing wrong?
How I usually do it is just have a few things in mind about what you expect from a woman. And just try to find out if she has those traits. Or better....get her to prove to you she really does have those traits even if they aren't her dominant traits. Follow this with an SOI (Statement of Interest) to show her she is slowly winning you over.
You can either elicit these things directly "What's the most romantic thing you've ever done?" Or just through casual conversation try to grab something she says that you feel she would like to be qualified on. "Wait...you've been to Europe? That's incredible." Follow this with an IOD so she doesn't feel like she's won you over and will ease any tension that may have been created if you hit on her too early. "Oh now your just trying to show off. No one likes a bragger." This also encompasses push/pull techniques which are my favorite and recommend to everyone.
