What's up fellow in-training and pro PUA's?
Newbie here who's working his way out of the friend-zone. Just two nights ago I confessed to a girl that I had feelings for her over text. She was quite skeptical, seeing that I was always the nice guy who treated friends equally. She automatically assumes that I like everyone (as a friend) and am asexual because I never made any advances on anyone when hanging out. I further convinced her through a phone call, I told her that my demeanor as an asexual dude was my version of friendzoning. She's known me for 4 years by the way but this was a side she's never seen or heard of.
Now that the cat is out of the bag, I started telling her tidbits of what I like about her in a more romantic sense and what I would like to see between us from this point onward. Currently she's still totally taken aback by my confession in the first place but I kept feeding her my intentions. She would tell me that she likes us as friends repeatedly but I told her that I'm not exactly asking her to be my girlfriend just yet and at the very worst we'll still be best friends. I proclaimed it'd be nice to have dates, and it'd be nice to develop an understanding of her under the label of dating. There is a clear distinction between dating and being a girlfriend for me, but not so much for her. She would mention that we had one-on-one hangouts before but as friends and I've never made any advances then. I told her she was at a troubled spot in her life at the time (education and best friend problems) so I didn't want to burden her even more but that I did enjoy those times together. I wanted to bring up that during those times, we've leaned on each other while watching a show or that she would play with my hair if I lied it down next to her legs. Like there was some light physical contact between that I thought could be a good indicator.
She would tell me things like she's no good for me or that I'm better with this or that girl, trying to disqualify in some way. I'd tell her that she shouldn't put herself down and that even if there weren't any problems with other girls she suggests, the important part is that I chose her specifically. There were times when she would give me another girl to pair up with and I'd ask her why she thinks that coupling is such a good one only for me to tell her in her long thinking that she actually has no reason and just wanted to say that to disqualify me. I didn't mention that it was to disqualify me but that's a fair assumption right? Anyways, she laughed and said I was right. Throughout the conversation, there were lots of opportunities to make myself seem like a mystery and I want to say that the awkwardness she feels and some of the responses she gave me to my retorts were positive ones.
More importantly I feel however is that I emphasized that I wanted to see her too much maybe. I basically asked her out. I was aware that it might seem needy but I never said I needed her. She lives in SoCal has a ticket to skydiving in NorCal that expires in about 2 weeks and I pressed her numerous times to come up to join me in the skies. It's a tedious drive she says but I guess I'm using the "mysterious new me" to incentivise her coming up.
Is there some actions I could have done better here? Is there a more surefire way to drop out of a helicopter with her? And could there be consequences of this risk I just took like having the girl feel like I betrayed our friendship? Hit me with all you got. Thanks.
