I am new to the PickUp game. Recently I have been working this chick and things seemed to be going well. Here's a little background.
I initially met this girl on FaceBook and friended her. We had a few playful interactions via messages and I told her I'd like to meet her sometime. She responded that she really had a boyfriend (for about 4 months), but that she'd probably see me at a club we both frequent.
Well, weekend before last I was at an outdoor music event and just kinda working the crowd, When I hear my name being called out. I looked down, and sitting just a few feet in front of me is this girl. I took this opportunity and decided to run with it. I proceeded to sit down directly behind her (we were both sitting on the ground) and made playful conversation for a few minutes. She soon began giving me IOI's and lots of Kino (leaning across my lap to get some (non-existent) thing behind me, etc.
We spent a total of about an hour on and off that night chatting it up and being playful with some sexual convo going on as well. She told me that she was happy to finally get to meet me and that I was a funny guy. She sent me a message the next day on Facebook basically saying the same things.
This past weekend I went to the club where we both hang out and about 30 seconds after I walked in the door, I heard my name again, It was her and I went over and sat down beside her and chatted her up for a bit along with some other mutual friends. The previous weekend there was a guy trying to hit on her and he actually told her she was semi-attractive (this didn't sit very well with her). Throughout the week I have been busting on her and saying things about her being semi-atteactive (all in fun and playfully). I get really good responses from her while doing this. I made a joke about the guy that said she was semi-attractive saying that she did have to take into consideration that he was pretty drunk. She agreed, and then I hit her with a neg and said that she should remember that the more a guy drinks, the prettier girls seem. She playfully smacked my shoulder and called me a funny name, but she was smiling the whole time.
Throughout the evening she would come over to where I was sitting and lean down and put her ams around me from behind and pretend like she had something to tell me (I feel like this was just a reason to be giving me more IOIs and Kino). At one point in the evening, I noticed that she had went to the ladies room and when I saw her coming back, I motioned with my finger for her to come over to where I was (trying to make her jump through a hoop). She immediately walked over and I motioned for her to bend down so I could tell her something (It is a rather small and loud venue). She leaned over and I told her to guess what I just did. She obligingly said What? and I told her "I made you come with one finger". I figured this was either make or break time. After a short pause she said "OMG, You're good. I can't even do that with both hand". I replied back to her that I would teach her how to do it sometime. She laughed and said she was looking forward to it.
Before she left that night, She made it a point to come over and hug me tightly and say how much fun she had had with me that evening and that she'd see me next weekend. I told her that i wouldn't be there next weekend as I was going to be out of town. She seemed disappointed and then said that she was not going to be there either (hahaha). She left and I hung around for a few more minutes before I left. I would have actually tried to escalate things at this point, but I knew she was sick and probably not up to a roll in the hay at that time.
Yesterday, I saw where a cool music artist was going to be performing a concert within an hour of where i live and thought this would be a prime opportunity to ask her out. I proceeded to send her a message on Facebook that I had something to tell her that would blow her mind and to call me when she had a chance (yet another hoop for her to jump through). I left my number in the message as well. Within 2 minutes my cell was ringing and guess who it was? I kept playing the cocky-funny thing and told her "WOW, that was fast". She started talking and didn't even bother to ask what the mind blowing information that I had was. Finally after a few minutes of talking, I told her that if she would promise to be a "good girl" and behave, that I might take her to a concert to see this particular artist. She said she didn't really know who it was and after a few reminders she remembered and said "She's hot". I said Yeah, I think so too. She pretended to check her schedule and finally told me that yes, she could go and would love to.
We talked for a few more minutes and I figured that I should remain in charge of the conversation. So, I said that I had better let her go for now and that I would talk to her soon. She made sure that i had her number and told me to keep in touch.
I was feeling really good about this whole thing as it is really my first "gaming" experience. This morning, I sent her a text to say "Good Luck" on a test that she had today and to also say that i hoped she was feeling better. Once again, within a couple of minutes she replied. Here is where my dilemma arises. The reply went as follows:
"Thanks, friend! I appreciate that. I'm not feeling better, but I do have faith I.m gonna live "
My concern is her use of the word "friend". I would appreciate any and all input you may have. Maybe I am making mountains out of molehills, but i would like to be sure about this.
Thanks in advance,
