So this past weekend I hung out with a girl who I had been seeing the past couple of weeks after hitting it off early on. We have been hooking up consistently and there's a slew of other cool characteristics that she has that make me want her around.
How do I go about progressing to the next step and entering into a relationship? This is the trickiest part of the game for me, as I am pretty good looking so my first few dates tend to end in sex, but then I think that I have come off as pretty clingy to some past hookups. I'm taking initiatives to prevent that interpretation this time around, such as not calling her the day after a date (for example, she just spent the weekend and today I'm not going to reach out, but maybe tomorrow I will?) and making sure I'm flirty + avoiding emotionally serious discussions when I do reach out "just to talk."
I like this girl, and I'm confident she likes me at least a little from the way she acts around me, but emotionally I know that I am more mature and more comfortable with feeling attracted to someone else since I'm more experienced with relationships. It's been to my detriment in the past because I think "well, you like dates with me and I like dates with you, so why don't we just exclusively date each other?" but it's just too much for many girls and I'm not developing enough attraction. To ask again, how do you guys go about demonstrating higher value and still initiating a relationship with someone, striking that balance between emotional and confident? I've noticed I tend to feel very comfortable around women once they start staying the night at my place, or once we are consistently having sex, and I'm not sure what I should be doing to continue demonstrating higher value without offending them (for example, I think that the pics w other girls on fb and instagram is kinda sketchy and makes me look like a player, and I've always felt like when I talk about past girlfriends it just comes off as bragging).
