Reply To: Escalation – is it the same as approaching?
You don’t have to have a full date, it happens really quickly. Girls will totally signal to you when they are open to being touched/escalated. Things like playing with their hair, licking their lips, exposing the side of their neck or their inner thigh, playing with their wineglass/bottle neck, touching you in any way, are all good signs. Also pay attention to how she is standing. If she is standing square on to you (i.e not turned away at all), and looking at you right in the face and smiling a lot, you’re definitely in a good place to escalate.
Some of these I noticed myself, some of them I got from a book called ‘Superflirt’ by Tracey Cox that I have started reading recently. Some PUA guy recommended it to me and you can get it on amazon for £0.01.
However, some girls are more inhibited and don’t give so many obvious signals, but if a girl is spending time with you and ignoring her friends, that is usually a good enough sign to make a move.
