Re: The LOVE question
She's just trying to get a response out of you. Make it clear that you care for her, but you're not ready to jump into the "love" category before it's true, because it won't mean anything if you do.
Honestly, this woman sounds like a lot of work. You guys are both playing too many games with each other. IMO, PUA stuff often fails when it is applied too strictly to relationships. There are aspects of PUA that should be applied in relationships, but if you follow the stuff you do pre-relationship while you're in a relationship, the relationship is bound to fail. Stop trying to game her, and start being yourself.
