Re: How to recover after being a total AFC?
I say to take it easy on the "good morning" texts and so on. Cut back on the gifts, too. Be less available. Not wipe yourself from the face of the earth, but keep busy. Busy enough that you don't notice how much time it takes you to reply to her texts, etc. Go a while without initiating texts. Chances are she'll get to you. Study the posts on text game thoroughly.
Now for the good part - dates. Lots of dates. Take her out. Build attraction and comfort. They don't even have to be expensive - a walk in the park, for example. Perfect for comfort and kino. Hold her hand as if you're guiding her, and then keep holding it. Chances are she'll hold on, too. That's a start. Get her to be comfortable around you both emotionally and physically whilst building attraction.
Keep your confidence up, show you can be trusted, etc. Also, don't be afraid to push the kino envelope a bit. Go from holding hands to poking her sides. Give her a hug when you see her and tickle her at the same time. Be FUN.
This is starting to sound like a stream of consciousness more than anything, but I think you can figure out what I'm getting at
Always leave her better than you found her.
