First off I would say that it is a good thing you slowed down on texting. Something I have learned from past experience before I was in this current relationship and was out fishing, is being very friendly and talkative with everyone around, not just her. Being social like that is a couple things. A damn good sign of confidence that will not only draw her to you, but everyone around (Don't get too drunk and overdo it), and also a weird evolved monkey trait, it builds social status in a group which is attractive.
Also, when the time comes that just you and her are talking, find a clever way to make a joke about either getting married or having beautiful kids. BEFORE YOU LAUGH AT THAT COMMENT AND DISREGARD IT AS INSANE, LISTEN! lol. Girls can very easily friend zone you. If you make a light hearted joke about marriage, and she laughs at it, you will NEVER be friend zoned. It takes a little quick thinking, but well worth it. Just as an example, if she says something like, "how have you been?" quickly reply, eh ill be better when we have cute kids together. Remember something very lighthearted and funny. You tell her im going to marry you and she will run for the hills.
But overall, its just about confidence and engaging in her conversation. A girl loves if you get passionate about what she is talking about, and you better not always agree. She can sense if you are full of crap if you are always agreeing. Engage in her conversation, make a few dumb jokes every once in awhile, but stay focused and actually have good responses to comments, regardless of if she asks or not. And it will not hurt to be (I hate this term) a "social butterfly". It ill show her you arent a clinger and a confident dude. Good luck.
