I've recently entered the online dating world. And I've had a few dates with different women. The one who I thought was the best prospect for a good long term relationship... we recently had a second date.
I feel like she's a super nice person but everything feels very "friend zone" and there is really no flirtation or romantic overture going on. At first I was wondering if I was just not stepping up properly and moving things forward... but I said "f" it and just texted her my thoughts about whether we were stuck in friend zone or we should move things forward more..
Her response is that she wants to take things slowly and build a "strong friendship" before we enter into a relationship. On the one hand I think that's ok, but on the other hand I think it could be a huge time commitment and... really, how do you flip the switch from a friendship to a romantic relationship? I have limited time to date. I'm not sure whether I should commit a lot of time to this woman.
Any thoughts from those out there?
Having had really be panicky attacks over the last few days, I am pleased to say that today I feel less nervy, I'm dyeing my hair later today and hope to finish the book I am currently reading.
