Okay, so I'm going to use last night as an example:
I open HB8, neg her and then immediately go into a dhv story and as I'm telling the story, HB8 is touching me a lot- like constantly touching my arm and laughing - so it seemed pretty clear that she was becoming attracted but then, towards the end of my story her friend comes around and she just goes, "I'm going to leave with my friend now", then asks my name and leaves
So my question in this particular circumstance is: How do you prevent that? Should I shorten the story and get her to invest more, sooner?
Also- my other question, which is in the title: How do I know when to switch phases- Like how do I know when attraction is complete and I can move onto qualification?
Did her friend say anything to her or just grab her and leave? Sounds like she signaled for a rescue from the friend.....
Shit like that happens all the time.
