Hey, new poster here from Australia.
I recently met this HB9 (really damn intelligent) while I was out with friends. I organised a date/coffee casual meetup. We talked a lot, light kino, hug goodbye. Decent day 2 which I thought was really fun. Then two days later I texted her to meetup again (second date), but she was busy till the next week. Some more stuff happened (and I never got back to her about the second date) and I got the vibe that she wasn't as into me as I was into her.
I then pulled the "Hey - I thought you are interesting and fun to be around. I really want to get to know each other a little better. If not, then let's just be friends." card (Sitfab) (push pull)
The reply was... "I would like to be just friends too, and sorry I refused your offer to hang out; it's just that I really am busy how about we hang out sometime in the new year?"
So, my question is: does she really just want to be friends too, or do I still have the opportunity to get her? By the way, I've learned a lot of PUA techniques in the past week, so I think I'll have a good chance at being able to game her. If not, I don't have oneitis so I should be fine =)
