dating advice!

I pretty much have never dated! HS and college kept me busy studying for long hours. And worked when I was free.
I dislike taking dating advice from friends since they are judgmental and discouraging (and most of them happen to be single with no dating experience).
I used various app and have spoken to people in person. People in person did not workout much, but apps were successful (especially not tinder and bumble).
This is based on someone I texted back and fourth almost 3am in the morning: We talked about life. What we like to do? How is our day/week going? Joking around. Got to know each other’s boundaries. Ethics. Personality.
When it came to hanging out, she would say I am busy which she backed up with proof. I suggest I will come closer to you. We loosely made plans, but I would forget to remind her. And took social media breaks. And went back to chatting. She was not into partying, but went out with her girls around town and the city for food and movies. I finally went straight to the point and asked her out. She says I am interested in someone recently. I told her I took social media breaks and she said she has bad time management problems indicated someone else got her attention while I was not texting her back. We used Snapchat to chat. Sometimes I felt she was avoiding meet ups. Or I was not the one. I felt like telling her you were being manipulative.
Why can women be straight to the point? Others have ghosted me. Others simply stopped talking. She is now trying to match me with a close family member of her which I agreed too. And she looks okay but not type to have fun. She is showing signs of being guilty by trying to match me with someone. And gave a basic description of her. I thought it would be someone from her snap she was always with. I now simply want to take a long break from toxic people and social media.

Question: how do you get to know someone and go from there?

    I'm going to lay this out straight. Socially you sound very immature.

    Before trying to get into a relationship start finding and making friendships and nurture those. Once those are successful, get back to the dating game.

      Literally that is the tag this was posted under. What’s next, people saying not to talk about politics under the politics tag?

  • OP, it sounds like you just gotta get out more. Go hang out with people. Make embarrassing faux pas. Learn the rules of social interaction like evolution intended

    Where do you live? If in the US, your writing style needs work. Go read a lot. Read whatever subject or subjects interest you, but read stuff by professional writers, or at least by someone who is a professional at whatever it is they do. Once you understand how to write, go back to your dating profile and revise it a few dozen times. That’s how I got my first date at 25.
