A little backstory showing my history with the girl:
I met this HB7 at my college and I've known her for about a year. After seeing her randomly out on the town a few times and hitting it off conversationally with what I thought were a few IOIs, I decided to invite her to a party last week. During the party, I managed to isolate her, and we sat on the couch talking for an hour. I didn't really run any routines or anything. I was starting to get a little nervous because every girl I've hooked up with has been on account of their initial interest (AKA, I've never gotten the girls I wanted, but I have settled for girls that were blatantly interested) and my interactions with this particular one seemed to be going really well. She seemed to pick up on it, and asked me, "why are you so nervous?"
"I don't really know," I said.
"It's because you are into me... isn't it?" she asked.
I said, "No way!" at first but we talked about it more and I admitted that I had had a crush on her for some time. She said she was flattered, and the kino started to escalate a bit. The conversation continued until finally we agreed to see each other again soon, and she left the party.
I waited a few days to invite her out again, but she declined (She said she was busy, and I'm pretty sure she was actually busy). So I waited three more days again, and just started a conversation with her. It was sort of flirty, and at the end of the convo, I invited her out for coffee and we set a date for two days later.
So, yesterday was this coffee date, and it seemed to go really well. We got to the coffee shop as it was closing, so we ordered and then left quickly. We took a walk and talked and stayed out for about an hour. Then, (since I'm a musician and had to play a show that night) I had forgotten something at my house, and she agreed to go get it with me. I invited her inside and gave a false time constraint of 15 minutes (in actuality, I had about 2 hours). We sat down on the couch next to each other and watched a bit of a movie and talked some more. She bonded with my cat as well. LOL. There was much kino going on but she seemed so guarded that I didn't make a move to kiss-close. Eventually, I had to take her back to her car so I could perform my gig, and as we walked up to the car, I just changed the subject abruptly, delivered the Mystery Kiss-close, "Would you like to kiss me?"
After all the IOIs and kino that was happening, I assumed that she would say "Maybe," and I could continue with "Let's find out..." and go for it, but instead, she surprised the shit out of me. She said "Um... Not right now....", explained that she was trying to restrain herself from having too many partners (which I'm down with) and said she'd definitely see me soon. This was completely unexpected and I am at a loss for how to proceed. This took place last night, and I haven't made contact with her since we parted ways. Any help is much appreciated.
