Ok i tried googling/searching for this topic but can't seem to find one more specific to my situation for forgive me if i'm repeating an old topic. long story short: there's this kinda shy and maybe even conservative? girl i've been trying to get with. i've met her a couple times for coffee and we really hit it off. herein likes the problem: i've been trying different ways to see how she reacts and build a connection with her and she responds really well to conversational texts n even subtly flirty ones (the successful example below can also be found in my previous post)
her: hey dudeee
me: why do u keep calling me dude, do i look like a frat boy to u!
her: yes! haha
me: fine, u want me to downgrade u from pretty bff to bad bff?
her: sureee, dudeeeee LOL
but anything even remotely beyond that i get no response. for example:
me: hey pretty girl, u got my (some item she was supposed to lend me) yet?
i'm afraid to do anything too forward or forceful cos it might scare her away (slightly shy and conservative). i tried looking through some texting and game guides here and tried a couple different things (cocky and funny, dhv, hooks etc...) but she only seems to respond to genuine and very mildly playful convos. what should i do and what's my problem? should i try to build a deeper, genuine connection before trying anything?
