Hey guys, (Sorry for the long read, but I could use some help!)
So there's this girl I asked out early in December. She was definitely down, but we didn't get around to it until the end of the month because I had exams and she had a sister's wedding to plan. We'd texted a little bit before the date but not too much. The date went well, conversation was steady, we joked and had playful banter etc. Ended with a hug. I promptly tried to schedule a second, and she was excited that I had. When it came to the date, she cancelled because she was sick. I rescheduled, and I cancelled because I was sick. Timing has not been our thing. We finally got out last week for the second date, both of us recovering from our sickness, so it was short, but sweet. It ended with a goodnight kiss which she actually instigated. That works for me.
Anyhow, on to the texting. She's VERY inconsistent. Sometimes she'll text me back right away (usually at night when it seems she's nothing better to do), but most of the time it'll be hours. I'm talking upwards of 5 hours to get back to me, and sometimes not until the next day even if I text her early in the afternoon. Normally I wouldn't care so much, but I've invested a lot of effort into her, and she's actually pretty cool. I met her through a friend, and he can verify that it's just how she is. She rarely texts back right away, and hours later isn't uncommon, so I'm not so worried that it's a problem that *I* have. My problem, though, is that it's boring as all hell. I want to talk to this chick, but she makes it difficult to keep a steady conversation going.
Additionally: She always replies eventually, and often ends texts with questions to continue the conversation. If the conversation ends and goes dry for a day or more, she won't be the one to initiate again.
Do you guys have any tips that I could try out to get her more interested in talking to me? I feel it's a bit early to call her out on it, but maybe I can make some sort of passive comment so that she realizes that it bothers me or something. Please, help me out if you can.
Thanks a lot!
