So I've known this girl for a few months now and met her through a friend, never thought much of it other than she was pretty hot and I felt somewhat attracted to her. We've only been together about 3 times in the period that I've known her and gotten to know a few things about her because she seemed interested in talking to me.
Now the last time I've seen this girl was the other day when a good buddy of mine asked me to come over, he told me he was with his girlfriend and the girl I liked, and another girl who in the end turned out to be a mother hen pretty much. However, we had little chats while we were in the group and I noticed a few IOI's such as playing with her hair, blushing.
Later when all the girls left my buddy instantly started saying I should go for her, hes been friends with her and has talked to her about me and she has said a few things like she thought I was cute, would go out on a date with me.
Now, my problem is my text game / facebook game, I find I am more confident when I am actually with the person rather than texting them. This is ultimately the reason why some girls flake on me.
I'm trying to understand hooks in texts and trying to use statements instead of questions but I find I freeze up and totally forget everything I learned. Before today I had only had this girls facebook but decided to talk to her, things started to get a little boring which worked out because I had to go out and get gifts anyways, just told her I had to go out and that I would like her number, which she gave to me and said ttyl! a minute or so later so maybe that means something?
Now I am just trying to figure out a good reason to text her, I obviously want to ask her out to dinner or a movie and I feel she knows this however I just don't want to crash and burn this because of a bad text game.
Sorry for the long convo, I feel like I am overthinking this like crazy but don't know how to snap out of it.
Any advice appreciated!
