There are some guys out there who are still skeptical if a more indirect, aloof game really works. This is the type of guy that wants to walk up to girl, tell her she’s cute, and be done with it. All he has to do to become a believer is eavesdrop on a group of girls talking about guys, specifically when one talks about guys she likes who is not contacting her or asking her out.
“We’ve been texting and then it just stopped.”
“Should I text him again?”
“We had such a good conversation.”
“I’m not sure what else I could have done.”
“I really like him.”
And so on. It’s pretty fascinating how pathetic girls get when they like guy, but what you will never hear them say is, “I like this guy a lot because he texts me every ten minutes.”
You will never hurt your chances if you lean towards the aloof end of the game by contacting her at a tortoise’s pace, especially after your first date. Assuming she is remotely interested in you, there is little reason to worry about if you waited too long or are taking it too slow. While you will not automatically be punished if you go fast, scarcity equals value for the typical easy girls you will be trying to get into bed.
