Re: From texting to dating
It sounds like She wants you to chase her until She's caught you! (Lol) nowhere near as unusual as you may think.
But from what you say, it seems like She is very interested, or She wouldn't text you as much as She has done.
So ask yourself the question, how many times do you want to hit the ball back?
It may be fun for both of you to do that but if you don't make a move on her, I rather feel She's going to lose interest if someone else turns up in her life in the flesh.
Girls like guys to be direct and it seems pretty obvious that She wants you to want her, as Girls love to be desired and as such have guys chase after them.
So you can either continue to play this Texting Game where you are not risking rejection, or else you're going to have to man-up and then ask this girl out.
There is no 'Silver Bullet' approach that's guaranteed to work, as over time we each have developed our own styles, though personally speaking I much prefer the very direct no nonsence approach, where I will go straight up to a girl and then say 'I'm taking you out' (Big flirty smile)
Its a great conversation starter, that really comes in from 'left field' then once I have engaged her and built up a rapport, then I will say something like where are you off to now, then before She has time to answer, I take her by the hand and say 'I know you're coming with me for a Coffee'
I want to hear all about what you've been up to (and then go)
Though just bear in mind that She may be a 'tease' who just loves the attention (like all girls do) and may not want to follow through with an actual date.
So you can 'either travel hopefully rather than arrive' or ask her out.
The Power in a Relationship always goes to the one who cares the least
