So I have very little dating experience from being in an excessively LONG LTR. Now I am back in the dating world and final found someone pretty awesome.
We've been talking for about a 1.5 months now, and we've gone on 4 dates. Each date has been progressively longer, and the last culminating at me sleeping over her place, we got physical, but not all the way, yet.
My inexperience in dating started to rear it's ugly head, and I guess I formed a case of oneitis, and started coming on way to strong.
We've talked since the sleep over, but lastnight we got into a small conversation about me coming on to strong... (yea I know, I know)
Anyway, she said she really wasn't into labels, and she was concerned that I may have been label-centric. I won't lie and say I wouldn't want her as a girlfriend, but I am more than willing to play it cool, and take this as casual as needed be.
We ended our convo last night with pretty much...
Her: "We're still good. I have a lot of fun with you and regardless I think, as long as you are okay with it, we could always be friends, but we will see what happens, is that ok?"
I said that I take it to mean that we're still dating, and we'll keep having fun (physically) etc etc. And she "seemed" to be on the same page.
My buddy is having a BBQ this saturday and she is going to come with me, as a date.
So... my questions...
1.) Is she just being nice and trying to let me down easily, or is she really still interested, but wants to go slow and let things happen...
2.) What the hell should I do to recover and get myself back in to work the right direction?
Thanks in advance,
A lost newb.
