Hello all, lots of good info here.
I'm a newbie AFC so bear with me here.
I had a great second date with a girl. It was two weeks after our first date. She's pretty prim and proper so I waited until the second date to kiss her.
During the two week break she had friends in town and there was some text banter. I know stupid mistake, but things were going good. She initiated texting 90% of the time. I know now 100% another mistake. I'm new and working on it.
At the end of the good second date my gut says it was excellent. I had some good IOIs some good banter. I kept it light. She told me about a movie she wanted to see trying to get me to make a date. I told her I'd contact her when I knew more about my schedule and gave her one last quick kiss before sending her home.
Then when I message her to set up the next date it is 8 hours until I hear back and at 2 am no less. I texted her back 12 hours later and say, "well, I bet your to tired to go tonight I'll look for another time slot."
Then a few hours later I get, "I was thinking about us, about that I love talking to you and time passes so fast with you. However I think of you more as a friend than a boyfriend (and I like you a lot). It is up to you to decide if you want to meet me again."
I reply: "Thanks for being honest. I like you too. I'll send you a message if I want to hang out again."
I get back: "Ok, I'll wait. As I said -- I like you a lot and I would like to spend time with you but don't want to hurt you."
There was good banter, even after the kiss. My gut feeling was good. Her body language was good. I had several IOIs.
Is this a sh1t test? I know I messed up all over the place, but is this salvageable at least for some game?
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
This is the short version, so if you need more let me know.
