Met this artsy girl last night. My friend was talking to most of the night but wasn't escalating at all despite the fact that she was completely engaged(long story but he didn't want to gor it). He gave me the go ahead outside so I chatted her up, did the standard "I'm going to take you to a romantic dinner at Mcdicks" number closing, and she gave me her facebook(didn't give me her number said something about her number changing a lot or losing her phone a lot).
Anyways I hit her up on facebook. I was really hungover today so I wasn't super imaginiative, and my textual game sucks balls in any case(altho im slowly picking up a few points, but I need way more practice).
I think the way I asked her out might have been a little bit awkward. A bit out of nowhere.
Probably just having a few drinks at home and taking it easy tonight, i was thinking about checking out the basquiat show but i have some work i got to finish
Right here you could have been like.. "Oh yeah that's an invite? I might be down for some basquiat. Wait what's basquiat" And from here whatever her response you can go either way. She hints at it you go with it, she denies it you take it back. But regardless it was definitely her throwing the idea out there. You need to recognize that stuff and go with it. I've had girls give me less and I'm like.. oh ok I've never been asked out quite like that before but.. alright. Girls be like.. oh you.. Then they come over and bang bang.
There is actually NOTHING wrong with these texts they're good. Sure you could potentially seed a date better but I thought the way you did it was B range. It was high value and casual.
Shit you're right. I didn't see the forest for the trees lol... I could have easily set up a hangout yesterday.
Thanks for that, I'll keep that in mind.
Hit her up in the morning about tonight... she suggested a time and we agreed on it.
Then she flaked me last second while I was already out in the cold.....
I tried the "battleship" line I saw on here... she was like "fuck you too!". Then I blocked her on facebook since it was obvious that there was no way to turn this around.
I've learned a valuable lesson, send a confirmation text right before the date before I leave.
Did you just leave it this morning after setting logistics?
I messaged her a couple hours before the time to tell her where exactly to meet... no reply to that I thought she in class or something.
W.e next time im not leaving the house unless she says she's on her way. Pretty much my fault for being naive.
Btw if I do sound butthurt its because I spent 2 hours going to my friend to get his key for his place today for pulling logistics(he lives in a perfect location)... obviously I did that after we confirmed in the morning.
and I have to spend 2 hours again tomrorow in -10C doing the same.
I'm just going to have copies of his keys made.
Otherwise I don't think it really matters. But whatever, that was super disrespectul of her to literally flake at the very last second... she didn't even give me an excuse lol.
Yeah that always blows.
That's a great way to confirm beforehand so you don't waste your time. But yeah it's your fault you don't already have a key. I would definitely have a keeey
yeah he just got the place so haven't had the chance to. im pitching in around 100/month to pull there. So getting keys made tomorrow.
I did text her that in the morning after I shot the shit for a bit and she replied with a time to meetup asking if I"m down.
I'll post the rest up tomorrow when I wake up might be good to do a post-mortem analysis... I know I probably didn't react the best to her flaking me. Plus I never got her number which was a mistake... I assumed just using facebook was fine. At least with the number I could have called her up and possibly gotten her to come out.
