Re: Suggested a date and then no reply!
There are like 5 hooks in your conversation. You jumped from topic to topic too often. You could instead save the new topic for later when the conversation is about to die and focus on the topic at hand.
Since you jumped too often, as Gotcha said there's no room for escalation. You just bombarded each other with personal information without having any emotional connection whatsoever. Sounded like a business get-to-know to me.
You should extend a particular topic further and tease her, make jokes, whatever comes to mind. If you sense she's getting bored or uncomfortable, use your hook and change the topic and now extend that new topic and work on her emotions again.
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.
