Don't show all of your self at once, just give her bits and pieces.

Well, first of all don't reveal that you are dating two different women.

If you can sort of the facts from the fiction from us you will be fine.

I'd let her know how you truly feel, don't hold anything back.

If you want to let her know that she's special, keep asking her out. Time and attention are the best way to tell her. Anyone can say you're special. Someone who means it will show it.

Totally right. Take it easy and don't get too anxious. I've learned the hard way that the fastest way to scare someone off is by being too open too soon. Give it time. Let her chase a little bit. It's more exciting for her that way and will keep her interest as you continue to get to know each other.

Don't know how old you are. And I honestly think that this makes a difference. Guys?

I know it sounds cliche, but she's mature for her age. she's unique, not like alotta immature and cocky recent college grads. she's very intellectual and well read, too.
Great then the advantage goes to you .

1. Provide as much background info as possible (age, sex, location, religion intentions etc if applicable)

2. General principles

* ALWAYS communicate FIRST with actions. Women listen to this. The best salesperson in the world CANNOT use words to woo. IT IS THEIR ACTIONS that communicate, words are just the grease.

* Just have fun. That sends the best message to a woman that you could ever have. If the woman brings up feelings then great but STAY MALE!!!!!!!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

SLOW DOWN THERE NELLY. Take it easy and let it flow. It will happen naturally. Focus on you not her.

If it really feels right for you, continue to see her. Exceptional men or women at this age are rare, apparently....
