So there is this girl I like. We texted a while she begged me to go out with her 1st hangout /date. It was great. We text/talk on the phone due to my work i could only ask her out the day of which didn't work with her schedules. Next week there was a family emergency so she couldn't really hang out. I've mentioned a bunch of times about hanging out. She texts me, asks me how i'm feeling since I was sick, and is cutsey. She's not the type to want another guy friend and there are tons of ioi's . At first I thought it was because she thought I was a player or how I wasn't interested in dating. But I've made it clear I'd like to ask her out on a date.
How do I freeze her out? She's invested enough where I know she will eventually text and say why aren't you responding. Do I give her an ultimatum, I don't want to push her away or scold her but I want her to know I'm willing to leave.
Thanks for any advice
