Re: How should I interpret This?
"How to Make Girls Chase" by Chase Amante is great with attainability problems. He approaches the subject much more thoroughly than I have seen it approached in other books. So I'd take a look at that ebook if I were you. It's even fairly reasonably priced if I remember correctly.
Here's how I would approach this (based on what I've read and seen in the field). First, I would lighten up on teasing her and absolutely do not neg her any more. Attainability problems stem from the fact that she believes her value is too low to attract you, so you don't want to bring her value down.
Second, take interest in what she's doing/saying and make it sound like you're intrigued by it and that it has value. You want to be able to relate yourself to her so that she starts to see you more as an equal than as a superior.
Third, start rewarding her for her demonstrations of value. This can be as simple as acting elated when she approaches you to asking her follow up questions to her stories.
Fourth, start qualifying yourself around her a little more. Qualifying is technically speaking a dlv. If she feels her value is lower than yours you either have to raise hers or lower yours or some combination of the two.
Fifth, straight up tell her that you like her. Tell her you think shes a cool gal and you'd like to hang out with her outside of work some time.
Having low attainability is a better position to be in than having high attainability. You can at least correct a bit from your position.
