Two Blondes - 1 Jihad (2 Text Convos Inside) - What Am I Missing?

27 replies [Last post]

Met this cutiepatootie at a Target and I approach and get her number. Smooth as lighter fluid. Not that I've drank lighter fluid. I've just heard about it ;D

We talked about her major and mine, I teased her about her uncle working for my non-existent medical sales co., dropped a story about my travels and what I want to do with my life that made her googly eyed. I ask for the number, easily get it, and tell her we're going to get icecream. She's down :)

I txt her soon after:

Me: Leaving Target babylove. Talk manana and behave yourself. Till we grab icecream ;) - Jihad

*No response. Sent on Wednesday.

*Next day. (Thursday)

Me: Just got off the phone w your uncle, tells me you kick kittens for fun. Thats fucked up babe. Oh and he says hi.

A little bit of callback humor. Still nothing.

While I was out the day I sent the next text (Thursday), I thought I saw her at the bar I was at and called her to see if it was her. It wasn't lol and my girl picked up the phone. It was so loud in the bar I could barely hear her say "Hello". She quickly hung up cause there was nothing but noise and music coming from my side.

15min go by and I know I have to call her again cause that's a weird way to do shit.

It's 1:30AM and I call. It goes to voicemail and I leave a pretty good voicemail. (So Friday morning now)

Me: Hey babe, think I buttdialed you by accident earlier. Anyways, just wanted to see what you were up to. A buddy and I are going to Waffle House to, well, get some waffles. I know, super late, but hey, we love that shit. Walking in rn and WOAH, there's a fat guy dancing on a table. Well, i'm now gonna go kick his ass cause no one can dance like that except me, yknow that of course. Anywho, just wanted to see what you were up to, later babe.

I know I'm supposed to send a text after the voicemail but I figured that she's most likely sleeping and if I send a text, she'll read it first in the morning and have no context for what I'm talking about and it won't hit as well. So I don't send anything.

*Now it's Friday and I'm contemplating sending a text or not. I think if I send a text pertaining to the voicemail, it won't as well cause I sent that at 1:30AM and it's about 5PM now. I also don't want to be too needy.

What am I missing? Do I need to playfully disapprove now? Kinda shocked cause we had a bombass interaction. Then again, girls are fickle.

__________

As I leave Target (same wednesday), I see two girls get into separate cars as they leave a restaurant together. I stop the hotter girl in her car, tell her I thought she was an old lady and my buddy made me approach her but not what I see her I think she's hella cute, and we hit it off. The girls' friend in the other car tries to cockblock but I shut that shit down. My girl goes, "Ya she's weird like that.". We continue talking and I give her my number because my phone was dead. This girl really digged me as well.

I get my phone charged and she sends the first text cause I didn't have her number obviously:

Her: Ayyyeeee

*I thought I'd play with her a bit as a first text, reference the old lady thing a bit, and go from there.

Me: Is this the old lady from the pasta aisle? If you could send me the recipe for that pasta sauce that would be fantastic.

*Nothing. I thought this was funny and would make her think I give my number out to old ladies. Guess not.

*Next day (Thursday)

Me: Hey I could rlly use that recipe for tonight. It's Italian night at my place and my brother's mother-in-law has high expectations

Me: God I hate that woman...

*Nothing. Thought she'd atleast respond telling me I have the wrong number or something and then I could play it off all like I was joking.

*Today. Friday.

Me: Italian night was a success. It's cuz of my cooking, obviously. Anyways, who is this? Maybe we have the wrong numbers :p

*I sent this 3 hours ago (2:30pm)  and am still waiting on a response. Probably won't come. Did I take the pasta thing too far? I thought I was clever about it and she'd atleast respond letting me know i had the wrong number.

With the last text I thought I'd take initiative and come clean with the "who is this?" and then play it off real funny when she responds.

What am I missing here as well?

Jihad are you trolling by

Jihad are you trolling by accident?  Obviously you're not boring and it really doesn't make sense that they aren't replying lol. In my experience, when stuff like this happens I thought my game was tight but I was coming across way too try hard.

Nope not at all. Opened with

Nope not at all. Opened with telling them I thought they were cute, and dropped conviction drills on them. After that, they were cooked and gave me no resistance on anything.Tons of IOIs, said they wanted to get ice cream with me blah blah blah. Made it super clear I liked them and was obviously they liked me back.

Second girl you got to

Second girl you got to normalize the interaction. Considering the randomness and even "abnormality" of how it went down.. you've got to ground it better. Coming at her with the recipe thing is fun but out of left field. Too much randomness 

Not sure what you were aiming for with the "wrong numbers" text but it sort of put you in a box as far as moving forward. 

As far as first girl you could potentially have just picked a nerd who is afraid to text. It happens, especially at Target ;) Did you find her in the comic book section? :p 

But yeah send her a text. Slight disapproval would work

Ya I feel the box. I can't

Ya I feel the box. I can't really say "Just kidding" at this point cause it comes off like "well wtf were you doing with the earlier texts". 

What if I sent her a pic of me doing something funny and prompted a response showing that "Yes this is the sexy guy you were talking to at X"?

That would sidestep or atleast get me out of the box with the "wrong number comment" - Basically answering the question first. Thoughts?

__________

For the target girl, she's an english major, super cute, she was checking out clothes and looked like she just got out of the gym. Came across sweet and secure. 

Thinking of firing off this:

Me: Hey lovebug whatsup? Too busy grammar checking me to respond ;) ? It's ok, i don't bite...atleast, not at first

A little play at her english major thing, and some sexual humor at the end. Thoughts?

Naw I don't think you should

Naw I don't think you should go sexual with that girl on a dead line like this. Unless you actually saw some sort of sexual glint from her.. otherwise no. Plenty of other angles to go here to compel a response.

Something like, "Look missy am I going to have to take an ad out on the back of a milk carton? "MISSING: Cute English major girl, future cat lady, closet terrorist in her spare time."

You could tweak that a bit but that's the idea.

Relooking at the last text to second girl I guess you could just go with the way you were thinking initially.

Gotcha! Thats hilarious

Gotcha! Thats hilarious lol

My train of thought ended with the last txt lol. I'm thinking of sending a funny pic of me eating pizza and saying "This is Jihad"

Very barebones. The pic does most of the work. Just a funny face as I am about to devour a slice.

Feel like I need a lil something more on the txt part

Me: Look missy am I gonna have to take an ad out on the back of a milk carton?

Me: MISSING: Cute English major girl, future cat lady, closet terrorist in her spare time

Her: I would wage war with a pack of malnourished lions cornered in the handicapped stall of a dirty Sheetz bathroom, with only a used bendy straw to defend myself, if you could refrain from vomitting your weak "game" at me

is this real lol? Someone put this in the txt msg database asap. I totally just got toasted...

For a second i thought it was one of you forum guys trolling me, even my wing for a sec, then I realized it was target girl and I'm flabbergasted lmao

On a more important note...WEAK GAME..?! Hell no.

This cannot be the same girl I was talking to lol

A buddy said I should tell

A buddy said I should tell her that's why I like english majors cause their the only ones w the IQ to match my wit

Sounds good to me just need to spin it right

1)Playful

2)Unreactive

3)Hit her hard

4)Keep moving forward in the date direction

Me: Aww is that Romeo&Juliet? :') You're too sweet, it's giving me diabetes. However, your subtle craftery needs some work. We can talk about it over a piping hot & delicious cup of coffee. A tall Americano from Starbucks to be exact.

^That's a rough draft. I personally like the Ro&Ju part but meh towards my "insult" & date idea.

Alot to work with:

-Waging war

-Lions

-Used bendy straw

-Handicapped sheetz bathroom

-Vomitting weak game

Intellectual battles are

Intellectual battles are hardly ever romantic. You want to neutralize and sidestep the conflict not make it a battle of egos. 

Aww. All those hairy little kittens need is some love and a shave. And put that bendy straw away! You don't know where it's been! :p

Something like that. You can tweak that around maybe make it hit sharper. But I def think it's better than the combative edge yours had

Negative General. Target "E-Major X Blonde Girl 21" has gone rogue. We've dispatched the last text drone and are still unable to locate her. I've received grievous wounds in the process. Mission Abort? Over.
