Hey guys; this is my first time posting about me trying use Game and I'd love any critiques.
SORRY for the long post. Everything is running through my head and maybe there is some detail you can help me with
I just got out of a horrible 3 yr. one-itis relationship where I put her needs way above mine. Knowing that I was an AFC who really wanted honest/open relationships is what prompted me to break it off.
3 weeks later... On a late night greyhound bus trip a woman sat down next to me. I mentioned that the wireless wasn't working at all, and transitioned into telling her about the crazy lady she missed at the previous station who got dragged off by security (true). We were on a crowded, dark bus, so as the conversation progressed (to her interesting opera singing career), I did light Kino I think. I used the back of my hand to touch her arm/shoulder/thigh when I was making a statement. I tried to lead her to talk by making statements about myself or her situation instead of just asking questions.
She gave me IOI's but i didn't transition into a k-close because we had 3 more hrs of bus ride left and, well, I'm probably still AFC about that transition. Eventually she went to sleep saying she'd give me her card before we parted. I didn't speak to her when we got off the bus, instead I grabbed her arm gently and squeezed (more kino I hope) and turned her towards me. Then I asked for and got her business card. I pulled her in close by her arm (gently!) and she was glad to hug me.
Today at around noon I emailed this.
"Hope you slept before work. I sure didn't :/ Misses that connection in *** and waited until 7:30 for the next bus.
Anyway, our connection was great, we should continue it soon. I'm in *** this weekend visiting friends. Let's do coffee/or a drink sometime. Then I can hear you sing, you promised me that! "
"Hey! Glad you made it back ok, in spite of the delay. I got into my apartment by about 4:45, and slept in as late as I possibly could get away with, 11am. I had to leave to teach by noon, so that was cutting it close. We did have a nice conversation, and connection. I do have a boyfriend, so if you're interested in continuing to connect on a friend level, so am I. I'm around this weekend, let me know what you'd be up for.
I don't want to be an AFC anymore, which is what "LJBF and get a drink" would be. What are some reasonable responses?
