Hi, I was on here a few years ago glad to see it’s all still going, back then I got with a girl younger than me by 12 yrs (I’m now 35) so I ended up doing all that for 4 years until a few weeks ago I ended it as she’d started pissing me off too much too often.
Probably a year too late but anyway now I’m re-familiarising myself with everything, working through the Best Of thread here for starters, and as daygame stuff is off to a decent start (couple girls at work, one I met at a bar) my post is more to do with the supplementary online stuff to keep the options open wide.
I’ve an opener for pof etc that gets a lot of replies but it's a bit hit and miss transitioning, well more miss. It's about how she looks like trouble and probably have me outside a bank etc (better in full) and gets a lot of responses esp at the weekend, but most replies are too short like “nice one”, “that was great” etc. Or just lol/emojis. Though sometimes I get “this is totally me how do you know this” which is longer and obv easier, anything with a bit more length I can work with.
It’s worked fully properly once with a Barbados girl who I met up with but otherwise chats keep fizzling out. Then my reply was something like “I’m sure our first date won’t end in a heist, just a couple of drinks what could go wrong” and I think it was lucky as she was a chatterbox.
I was thinking of perhaps totally changing direction so whatever she says just put something like “what you up to this (day), I’m building a table for my decks, come help” (somewhat inspired by a link on Best Of obv...) broken up into maybe 3 texts.
Only prob I foresee is it sets me up for a reply of ”No” or "I'm not into construction" or some such thing plus it’s a bit trite with that what you up to vibe. Maybe I should pick a different opener but it just works so consistently at getting an initial reply.
Must say as well even just reading through the Best Of thread a little already has my mind a bit more mentally in tune, so big up to Manwhore for all your advice and work.
