I was set up with this girl for her sorority formal just because our mutual friends said that we are actually quite alike. She has sort of a distant / standoffish personality, which I really love for some reason. But anyways we went to formal and had a great time and even made out. I eventually asked her out the following week for a dinner and a movie. We had a great time there too. Even got a kiss at the end. However, I think I may have smothered her a little bit. We started texting quite a bit but that wasn't really going anywhere. She told me that I came off very forward and that she wasn't used to that. I played it off like nothing was up but the more I texted her the more distant she seemed. She really didn't follow through on any of our plans so eventually I just asked her if there's anything up between us two to which she replied "we don't need to take this too fast and I'm just dating around right now". I haven't talked to her since then because my other friend told me that I should give it some time. Haven't spoken to her in around a month by the way. Any ideas on how to recover from this?

I've been in the same position as the girl before, she probably said it because it all come across as rushed and she isn't sure if she wants to continue if you're going to rush into everything else as well. Don't smother her with messages and when you text don't over do it with asking for another date or telling her how you feel etc.. If you're going to message her just say something simple like 'Hey how are you? :) Long time no speak!' and go from there, don't mention anything to do with a date or what happened before and try a fresh start. If she doesn't respond just take the hint that nothing can be done at all and she's not that interested.0
