After becoming addicted to Neil Strauss's books I need to voice my thoughts in the forum in hopes you boys can help me out...
So I picked up a girl about a year ago - went on a few dates but it slowly fizzled (never had sex). She simply pushed me away.
I kept in contact a few months later and asked her out for a drink, shes been in and out of short term boys since and had said that I was one of the few whom she actually enjoyed being around.
I hit her up to see how she was today and found out shes been a single for a while, without giving the option to back out I suggested dinner, however her response was "sure,but as friends".
When this goes down - what sort of play do I pull to seal the deal this time and lock her down.
