Re: Competition with another guy and trying to avoid friend zone
Well it doesnt see like shes giving off a bad behavior with you. Which is good. Which means you dont have to freeze her out. I do believe you're friend zoning quick.
Solutions would be break rapport. Talk more in person leading conversations and ask her wuestions that challenge her adventurous side that most men miss ou on. Make yourtime with her less about getting to know about her and being comfortable and take more control in having a good time. This doesnt mean escalate to sex. But to me everything you've posted seemed lack luster in leading her which is why there was no kiss early on and the mention of another guy. Don't let things distract you. Being busy and acting like it is ok but really the thing you need to work on is being the most desireable person to her. The way to do that is to show her how to have a good time where she can live, laugh and smile the entire time. Think of things to do that aren't exactly friendly events and more intimate adventures. Im not exactly talking about dates but turn your situation around by increasing the intimacy and fun vibes. Women pick up on this and want to mirror it and when they're not exposed to it they become cold and detached.
Every moment counts, get out of your head and enjoy it.
