Re: Building rapport and comfort with new girl
Marv, she doesn't sound like she's interested. If all she's sending you are short, uninvolved messages, then she doesn't want anything to do with you. I'm pretty sure you have sent her at least one message designed for more involvement ( Like "So what do you do for fun?" ), and if that didn't get a reaction out of her then there's really no hope.
I would say move on, and try something new.
