I went out drinking with friends one night and wound up spending most of the night with this girl, dancing and a little kissing but nothing major. We stayed out all night so some of the details are blurry in my mind.
As usual I texted like an AFC but lately I've been doing my homework here and getting some better results. She came over the other night and I cooked her dinner. Things went great, I used "the cube", displayed some dhv and took opportunities for subtle body contact (wiping spaghetti sauce from her face, etc.) In general it was a great date and I managed to keep my foot completely out of my mouth(something I regularly do with girls)
My only concern is with this k-close business. I have a tiny apartment so when we cooked dinner we were very close and there were many times that she kind of coyly brushed up next to me, as if to say "KISS ME". Being an AFC, I didn't know how to react and awkwardly went in for the kiss, only to be denied. This happened twice in a kind of funny, quasi-comfortable way. The second time this happened she didn't resist but didn't participate either so I just chuckled my embarrassed laugh. The date recovered though and we established comfort. Eventually she held my hand while I walked her to the bus stop. When I left her there I gave here a business-like kiss on the cheek and went on my way.
what can I do to make this girl initiate a kiss or physical contact? I appreciate any advice and honest (even if it's ruthless) interpretation of my approach...........
