Re: break up after 2.5years; want suggestions
You're in a good spot right now but you're response was boring and didn't keeping the convo going. Every time she texts you, use it as an opportunity to be playful and mysterious. You have to start engaging her on an emotional level. Make her feel a wide range of emotions.This is how I would respond to her text because it would have almost demanded a response. Then you build slowly from there.
Her: "Are you going out at all?"
Me: "Too much lately. I gotta slow down!"
This opens the convo up because now she is going to be curious about exactly what you have been up to and with who. Her asking if you have been going out lately really translates into: "Have you met anyone?" This is a really good spot to be in but I would suggest you start learning text game--and fast!
“The great mistake is to anticipate the outcome of the engagement; you ought not to be thinking of whether it ends in victory or defeat. Let nature take its course, and your tools will strike at the right moment.” -Bruce Lee
