I've noticed that if girls want you in the FZ they tend to LJBF you pretty fast. If they don't, does it mean you should escalate until either you get a clear LJBF or you get either body-language IOIs to show attraction and some qualification too? I'm assuming you've already got comfort, so we're working in reverse order, so to speak.
I'm thinking of one girl in particular whom I knew as an emotionally close friend 10 years ago at college. Both of us have been through dire marriages and are now on the market. We recently met up and spent a long time talking. Her father is a leading politician, which I think made me too shy to escalate or suggest a physical relationship and romance with her back in the early years of the century when we knew each other and I was a pathetic AFC. So we just became close friends instead. I'm not f***king shy like that now!
We're reminiscing a lot, and I've had some obvious body-language IOIs, so should I tell her I had the hots for her back when we were at college? Or is that utterly wimpish, because who cares about then because that was then and now is now and I should treat the situation as if I'd just done a PU without knowing her before? I'm kind of in the FZ without having been LJBFed. Making her jealous isn't something I want to do because she's depressed a lot. I'm getting lots of emotional connection and rapport and comfort...but...game advice anyone?
