Hello, and thanks for your thoughtful reply. However I must clarify, maybe I wasn't clear in my question, because I don't think you really understood or answered my question.
I am not at all ready to ask her to be exclusive. In my heart and in my head, I am leaning that way. However I DO realize that we haven't known each other for very long, and while our phone conversations have been lengthy and extensive, I'm not new to online dating and know that we need more time. I also do not want to 'push' her or be too assuming, too forward.
My question was, simply, do I ask her to forgo her other plans and go to another game with me? Not even that I really expect her to DO that- although of course if she would I would be thrilled- but really as a way to let her know that I'm willing to put in the effort to spend the time with her, AND to kind of chivalrously let her know, I wish she were with me rather than (possibly) someone else?
I DO NOT want to come across as pushy, nor possessive. But I would like to let her know I'll go to great lengths for her.
Can I ask? Should I ask? Of course it would have to be in a gallant and charming manner, not forceful or heavyhanded at all.
Would she likely be flattered? OR would it do me more damage than good?
