I need some help. I'm going to outline my situation first.
I'm dating a girl who is a public figure. We've been dating for about 4 months now. We initially met for drinks twice, then dinner. She only realised I liked her once we had dinner. We kissed the 4th time we went out. She kissed me.
It was all great in the beginning. I started off alpha, but slipped into beta mode, like a real wuss. I think because she's a public figure, I put her on a pedestal and bent over backwards for her.
So on Wednesday and messaged her why she kept avoiding eye contact when we danced on Saturday, and why she called her friend while were on a romantic outing. She said we need to talk. She's been putting it off and she's not sure whether we can fix this or not.
Basically, her interest level was low. She wasn't feeling as much in love as I was. I was crushed. She suggested we give it a week break so that she could see how she will feel. I realised that I was beta, and told her this. I also told her that I'd change. For me. Not her. She also said we'd probably be in each other's lives a lot, because we were so similar. I told her I wasn't sure how soon we could be friends if it didn't work out.
We spoke and she said a couple things that gave me hope. She said that she really really loves me, and we have a good thing going. I told her I want a future with her, and she smiled broadly and said that would be nice.
On Friday, I thought I was being alpha, and sent her a text saying that she should let me know if she makes up her mind before the week is up, so that we don't waste each other's time. She said she isn't making a decision. She's gotta see how she feels and I must focus on my life and myself.
I really love her. She's the one. What do I do to keep her?
