Thanks for your reply LockDown.
I agree it's not good for ones mental state - I guess it comes off as needy, b'cos it kinda is. This is the first 'one' i've been treating as a 'project' in as much as i'm 100% sharing the interaction with the forum with the hope someone (like Autismus totally has done) gives me some pointers and shows me where I can improve / adapt so I don't get FZ'ed. Maybe this is the wrong way to do things. Will learn for next time.
Txt convo update, she replied : "I can assure you that my name is *full name* and I'm over 18. That's all you need to know for now. So where are we meeting tomorrow? X x"
My gut reaction / feeling is to call her to arrange...
