Sounds to me like she could have been very hurt in the past and she wants to make sure you're sticking around for the right reasons. If you really like her show her you're in it for the long haul.
Just stick with the status quo. Keep it casual and perhaps at some moment you'll know when the right moment is to kiss her or at least ask for one. No need to rush it, good things are worth waiting for.
I hope so...good luck!!
yeah dude, just wait a few years, it gets better, when women get older like mid to late 20's, they dont associate sex with love, as much and its alot more fun
I think the lady is messed up. She seriously wants you to sleep in the same bed without even kissing her? If you want to continue with this woman, I would set a few basic rules WITH HER.
If you go slowly, what does that actually mean to her? You can hold her hand? You can kiss her?
Maybe she is not sure of you. Of her feelings for you. And that is a big deal. Or.....she DOES know her feelings for you, and is afraid of them.
I think that if you care for her, please try and find out her real feelings. It depends on how long this has been going on. From other women, I have heard that it sometimes takes them a year to sleep with a man after a break-up and sometimes longer (and, to make you feel better, sometimes far less).
Well each woman is different, so I couldn't really give advice without knowing who she is as a person. However, if I were her and doing the same thing, I'd probably want you to be the 'initializer', so to say. I'd want you to pour your heart out to me. Buuut with some women that would be a huge turn off so -_- I'm sorry I'm not much help :p
She's probably still hurt from her break up..
