This is my first post, so a quick intro is in order. I'm new to the world of PUA, a friend and I have been going together to public places and practicing (which being new, for us so far, consists of starting social interactions with as many people as we can, and trying for extended conversation...like I said, quite new).
That being said, I've also ventured into online dating (POF). Ive opened and been having good conversation with an HB6, finding alot of commonality, and picking up small ioi's. Ive been working on building comfort and I think pretty soon I'm going to hit a point where either I n-close or fall into some sort of online friendzone. Being that online dating in some way assumes attraction and interest, given they're talking to you and obviously looking for dating...what would be the best way to increase interest and move to n-close? Weve been just going through messages not chat because were both busy alot so the 'well Ive got to get going whats your number' deal wont work. Ive considered going with the 'i dont think youre a creeper lets trade numbers' ive read about...not sure.
Any help is appreciated and please give examples, saying 'build rapport' etc wont help because Im new and dont fully understand the stuff!
