With the last several girls I've dated, the romance has always fizzled out right before the LTR stage (so after multiple dates). I was doing a lot of things well: leading the interactions, making jokes/banter that had her laughing, bringing up conversations about faith, etc. I think a big factor was that I wasn't creating enough sexual energy/tension that can make dates so exciting. I honestly have no idea how to lead a girl in this direction of a conversation, and what the boundaries are as a Christian. I need some advice or resources on this, because I feel clueless on this and need to figure it out.
I did hold hands & kiss some of these dates, but the physical escalation felt kind of forced because I didn't create the proper mood. In the end, one of us would end things because there just wasn't enough chemistry or compatibility. And no wonder, if we're talking about everything else but not addressing our physical attraction to each other, then we're basically just friends.
