What Girls Said 1

  • They want to know you first before anything else.

    • and what's the time frame with that? I mean as a guy I wouldn't want to fall in the friendzone by taking it slow.

    • It will take from 2 months up to 6 months, some take more. It means she wants to know you as a person, likes and dislike if you have something in common. She might not want to go for sex right away without knowing who you really are first. Also by taking it slow could mean that she is probably thinking on something more serious or just figuring if you are her type for that matter.
