Guys, I'd like your suggestions on how to now handle this with this new girl I've been starting to see. I met her a month or two back, number closed, she texted me right away that night displaying plenty of interest. We set up a date a couple days later, and casually had some drinks together and talked. Went well, she seemed excited before heading home that night (no fooling around this time, more of the traditional dating route for a change, for better oworse). We tried making plans again over the next couple weeks but they kept falling through on her end due to work, med exams, moving, etc. During this time I did not overdo it with the texting, but when we did text she still seemed to keep an element of light interest.
Finally we got together last night for another date. Took a walk, got some drinks at a few bars along the way, headed back to my place and sat outside for awhile longer just chatting. Suggested several times that she could just stay over, however she nicely declined each time saying that she was just planning on staying with her friend tonight. I went in for it and made out with her for a few seconds (nothing fancy, but nice), talked a little more and then wished her off calling it a night.
I was really happy with the date. Even though we didn't sleep together, it felt like things were progressing and we were connecting while talking etc, and got the kiss in there (slowly moving things in the right direction). She give me all kinds of signs of interest while we talk. From talking about us hanging out into the future, asking about family and personal things, smiling/eye contact with me, just overall I can tell she likes me. Only problem is that she is in a spot right now where her schedule is VERY busy and clashes with mine (which we talked about as well). At the end she said "hopefully we can get together alot sooner than this last time". Now don't get me wrong I've had plenty of dates where we had sex the first night, but this just hasn't had that feel. Feels more like she's classier than that and I kind of like it, seems like long term material to me. In my experience, girls that I've had sex with too quickly never turn out or last, where the girls that take some time to come around are the keepers. Just my thoughts.
This girl is seriously a 10 for me, exaclty what I'm looking for (as far as I see so far) as long term material. I want to keep things progressing, but it's a little hard when you might only be able to hang out once a week or even every other. Maybe this will just pick up naturally but I don't want to mess it up by pushing to hard.
I have not texted her yet today. But I was thinking of a quick "last night was awesome" later on tonight if I don't hear anything from her. I think the anwswer to my own questions are kind of easy.... but any suggestions or reinforcement on how I should proceed with this? Again, I want to keep things progressing, but I don't want to overdo it either as I have on occasion in the past..
