>are you doing anything this weekend?
That sounds controlling inside her head. Just invite her to do something, and let her say whatever she may say. If she replies with "muh boyfriend" well.. you were not telling her to marry you!
>HER: ”it’s my birthday weekend”
That was completely self-sabotage towards yourself, and peak unpolite.
You could have just said "I don't celebrate those things..." just telling away things about you, as if she cared... then remain silent. (You are with this, giving her a chance to try to make value more such parties, inviting you, then you refuse and she will feel she's still has something to do about you)
> can I have your phone?
No, no, no! you just give yours to her, discretely and without asking. Like they do!!!
>do some basic “get to know me” games
