Just going to give you the low-down on a certain something I have in the works and I'd like your opinion/advice on how you think it's going and how I should proceed.
Met this HB9 a couple of months ago when I was definitely still in AFC mode. The night I met her was at a mutual mate's birthday drinks at a local bar. She was so gorgeous that night that when she started talking to me I was like "why are you even bothering talking to me?". Anyways she seemed really interested in what I had to say and we got to know each other a bit. Turns out she has a young boy which I actually thought (and still think) is kind of cool. She added me on FB and was messaging straight away. We were talking for ages because we both study teaching and seem to be getting along well. I tried to organise a time to hang out a few time but she kept flaking so eventually I just stopped trying.
Started chatting with her at the beginning of the week as we'd both finished studies and were happy about that. I feel I'm getting a lot less AFC so I just said "when can we celebrate?" (this was Thursday). She said really keen so I suggested we grab a late movie, she was like sweet, and it ended up with me going to her place to watch movies (late Friday night) with her and her sister and sis' BF. I got there and we spent the ages all talking and I had everyone laughing which was cool and she was showing me sweet body language . However, I didn't try to escalate physically at all much throughout the night (except we ended spooning alone on the couch until about 2:30am. I feel this was a better move not to because knowing that she has a child I felt that maybe I'm playing a different game and that I would want to take things a lot slower to build more rapport and comfort first so that she feels like she can trust me obviously (TBH I'm really interested in meeting her son and spending time with both of them).
My question is obviously, was this a clever way to approach this and is it likely that I can continue this track to maybe make something work? It's probably hard to tell not knowing the girl but if you can offer me anything, that'd be great, particularly if you've been in similar situations.
