Hey duders, I hate to post yet another relationship-advice-seeking thread, but I've been truly clueless recently with this girl and I need some (hopefully good) advice.
I asked this girl out a few weeks ago, she said yes. The first date went well: we went to a movie and drinks, and I held her hand and she put her head on my shoulder. The next day, she texted me to say she had a great time. I asked her if she wanted to do it again sometime later that day (in person, I might add), and she said yes. She asked me to do something later that night, I couldn't make it, and we ended up (after going back and forth one more time) planning for that Sunday (the first date had been on Thursday). We went out for some drinks after she got off work and hit it off, since we ended up kissing and she kissed me goodnight as I dropped her off. I ended up texting her to say I had had a good time, and she reciprocated. That was last Sunday (a week and a half ago).
Ever since I got her number she hasn't texted me much at all, and she seems to drop out of conversations quite a bit, and normally takes at least an hour to respond to text messages (if not way longer). I was worried she might be trying to let me off easily. However, I ended up going into her work again this Thursday (so four days after we went out), and she seemed really happy to see me, and came up and talked to me a few times. Also, earlier that day, she also agreed to another date after Thanksgiving week (this week, due to both me and her being crazy busy with work/relatives this week).
So I guess I'm a little confused by her demeanor. I definitely think she likes me: every time I see her in person she is smiling and joking and comes to talk to me a bit. But she rarely, if ever texts me first, and she leaves text conversations hanging for days/indefinitely. The only reason this is a problem for me is lack of any knowledge of why she's doing it: it could be because she doesn't text often, it could be because she doesn't like me (contrary to my strong evidence against, but maybe I'm delusional), or it could be that she's just trying not to seem too eager so early into knowing me.
TLDR, my question is, should I ask her about this? Would this be something I should bring up to her? I really just wanna know why it is she doesn't text me: if it's because she's playing hard to get, I'd rather dispel that and just get to know her. If she's just really busy/forgetful about texting, that's totally fine too, I just wanna know what's going on. And if she's just trying to be nice and let me down easily, I'd just rather know and get it over with.
Like I said, we've only gone on two dates now (one of which was rather unofficial, what with her getting off work and all), and I don't know if it's too early to worry about this stuff. Any advice or any conversation would be an immense help.
