How To Encourage More Communication...
...but without sounding too desperate or needy? I'm asking for a ladies perspective on this as a vast majority of online advice seems to focus on the man not communicating.
I've been seeing a really nice woman for the past couple of weeks and when we're together the spark is definitely there so to speak. We've told each other how much we like each other and I'm pretty sure we're exclusive but due to work commitments we don't always get to see each other for more than two or three times a week. Hence a lot of our communication is done via text or mail but getting anything more than the bare basics out of her is like getting blood from a stone.
She doesn't ask questions to encourage a conversation (though she will respond to mine) nor does she initiate unless I write to her first. I keep things light, humorous and brief during working hours and a little sentimental in the evenings but even then her responses are hardly engaging. I get that some people aren't good at written communication. Personally I love it but perhaps I'm the one who needs to be more interesting so ladies of TAM: what do you suggest some actions I take?
