Hey guys this is my first post and i'm new to PUAforums, they've helped me quite a bit!
Here's the story.
I go to school with a HB8 that im starting to actually like, i've gotten many IOI's from her. She giggles and laughs when I crack jokes or do stupid things (on purpose to get a smile) she'll push me or punch/kick jokingly and i'll also push back. The other day as I was walking along with her she grabbed me by the arm and linked arms and me being my goofy self walked along in an upright fashion talking to everyone we passed in an English accent (she was smiling and laughing). Whenever we're out having a smoke and the rest of our friends leave she usually sticks around and waits for me and i'll do the same for her. She looks back and locks eyes alot if shes ahead of me when shes walking, specifically if we go up stairs (looking to see if im checking her out maybe? she does have a nice a$$ but i don't want her to think i'm staring at it)
The 1 thing that made me pick up my game is when she asked why I didn't have a gf a while back. (she didn't know if i had 1 or not) I told her i DID a while ago, and then she said why are you so nice to me, I then replied "because im just a nice guy" NOW this may have been an IOI ORRRR she may have seen me as needy/weak I offered her smokes when she didnt have any, a car ride when she missed her bus (she declined) and just being the generally nice guy (REALLLY dont want to be stuck in friend zone as a nice guy) so I started showing the "bad boy" side of me, she seems to respond well to it as far as I've observed. She took my phone from me at 1 point this week and punched her # into it (big ioi imo) then she made an excuse to give it to me, took a load off of me, couldn't think of a lame ass excuse to get hers xD.
For the most part kino is no issue, we always hug (altho she hugs some of our closer friends (guys) aswell) and the other day she asked me to help her with her bra strap and today she noticed she had a hole in her pants and turns and points it out to me and goes "what colour are my panties" with a big smile, I then found out she was wearing a yellow thong ;
NOW heres my main issue...she started dating a guy before I built up her comfort levels with me (when I believe I was coming off as needy) as I talk to her she will occasionally tell me about her sex life with her current BF and that they've done it several times, maybe looking for a reaction in me? (this screamed friend zone at me sadly)
A few days back they had a fight...I know why to, she had told me that her current bf blamed it on her that he couldn't get it up. I texted her saying "wooowwww to much info, but tell the limp d1ck b@stard to go fark himself then" she agreed, but probably not the smarter choice on my part, should have told her to ignore/forget about him and talk to me which we did for some of the night, i told her i would make it my personal mission to cheer her up which I did quite a bit as she told me. That same night she said her she might get kicked out of where she's living because she cant afford rent, I asked where will you go?? and she said "i'd go move in with my man if i need to..." (doesnt want to move in or whats with the ...) I said "you dont want to do that, you JUST started dating the guy" she replied "we've already farked nuff times and hes harmless" (SH1T FARK not a good sign is what im thinking) She had also told me about her bf and from my point of view he seemed insecure and I pointed that out. He feared/fears that she might leave him for a guy in college..she told me this (big ioi or am i reading into it) another thing she hates is hes never on time to pick her up and she has to wait..i'll usually wait with her and she likes that...she also gave me a big hug infront of him.....bet he didnt like that
I got a radar detector (they're illeagle/rare and largely unheard of where i live, part of the "bad boy" side) she didn't know what it was but i told her what it was and told her i was setting it up she almost instantly wanted to come for a drive with me and check it out the next day we have school. She told me she was very excited to see it in action.
SO am I going crazy or does this girl like me? or is she just leading me on and what the hell should I do stuck up in a situation like this? I've been kinda going with the flow but want to escalate, I also dont want to be the cause of a break-up (this hasnt come up yet in any convo) and end up as just a rebound guy...should I keep pushing to an extent? or move on?
Trying to go for a relationship, not just a quick hook-up
ANY SUGGESTIONS/observations/questions are much more then welcome, I like this girl and dont want to fark this up. and sorry about wall of text, giving as much info as possible.
BE CRITICAL I LIKE TO SEE WHERE I SCREWED UP/WHAT I SHOULD CHANGE. We learn from our mistakes but if you cant spot them they wont be fixed.
thanks in advance
