Re: IOIs VS Friendliness: What's the Difference?
You're doing good.
Let her do the "hot boy" talk. Don't feel intimidated. Take it as a challenge. Remember, you aren't even exclusive yet. Even if you were, it is perfectly normal to find other people attractive. It doesn't mean she's gonna jump on those other guys.
Same goes for you. Don't be afraid to give her the "hot girl" talk. If she's as forward as you say, it's highly possible that she will get jealous (but a good jealous) and realize that you might go off the market with someone else any second.
If she was shy, that might have backfired because shy girls often feel insecure about themselves. However, assuming your girl is the confident type, it's likely for her to see the other girls as a challenge in getting you.
And having a babe fighting to get you, my friend, is one of the best feelings in the world.
It's not about who I was or who I'm going to become.
It's about who I am. Do it right here, right now.
