Re: What kind of date should I ask her on
Personally, I always go the let's meet at a cool restaurant for drinks to get to know each other. Of course you just met each other. Who cares? The point is to get to know each other, and there is no better way then one-on-one time. I love situations like that where I know the girl has serious interest (btw she showed some serious interest, good job). Then the date become super easy.
Now the whole friends thing... if you are going to do that, you should play the role of, i'm a social guy, i set up all the get together's and parties because i'm that guy. that's a good thing, to be the fun instigator. So if you go that route, definitely tell her to invite some friends. that way you are hooking up your boys too.
The world is your matrix. You control the strings.
