Due to my past experiences I don't always want to have to be the one to start up a conversation. It makes me feel needy / clingy / as if the other person doesn't care, even though I think it's just because she's shy.
Is there a way to get her to initiate more? I thought about not texting her and seeing if she starts a conversation but
1. We just talked about the fact that we kinda like each other and I don't want her to think that after that talk I stopped caring
2. That feels manipulative
