I've got a girl I used to semi-date a few months back, however things never properly got off the ground cause her ex showed up after a few weeks. Long story.
But we still catch the train together, text and email all the time and aim to have a day each week where we hang out 1 on 1.
The thing is: Almost every time we'll be sitting together talking, she'll do this thing where she's rapidly alternating her gaze between my eyes and my lips. Like she's having an epileptic fit. She says it's an involuntary thing, because my lips were "luscious" to kiss.
I then tried this thing as a joke, where I bit my lip in a seductive way and slowly stared her body up from her legs to her lips. She had to cover her eyes with her hands. When I asked her if it worked she said "you know it works". And later "who knows what would've happened" if she'd kept her eyes open.
Anyway, question is: Given her vow not to get intimate with me, what's the best way to initiate a kiss she won't turn down? I wanna escalate this to friends with benefits or even a relationship and feel there's no way to do this without kissing her (and therefore making her cheat and adding a layer of complexity to her relationship - the dude's a dork and lives in another city, don't worry).
I'm thinking when we're alone together and I spot the whole eye fluttering thing, I simply say "I really wanna kiss you too", put my hands on both her cheeks so she can't move her head and go in for the kiss.
Would be really interested to hear your thoughts though!
