    Default Went direct, said guy was creepy, still go for number?

    I've made my 4th and 5th cold openings this weekend. One of which I was unsure what to do...There was a cute girl working behind the counter at the gas station I stopped at. I knew I wanted to hit on her but I was unsure of how to go about it. At first, I just asked her if they had any hot food, like pizza or something, and she told me all they had were sandwiches, so I just bought a water and left. I got out to the car and decided I wanted a sandwich, and her phone number. I went back in, grabbed a sandwich, walked up to the counter and...

    Me: I changed my mind, I'm hungry
    HB8: Haha okay
    Me: Do you get hit on a lot here?
    HB8: I don't know
    Me: Well your just super cute...
    HB8: Hehe, thanks. I had some guy actually get my number and then add me on facebook a little while ago, it was kind of creepy
    Me: Oh, so he just asked for number and didn't flirt with you at all?
    HB8: Not really, it's usually just older guys who flirt with me
    Me: I'd flirt with you
    HB8: Haha
    Me: I got to get running but maybe I'll come in some other time and give it a shot
    HB8: okay

    I was so nervous that I barely remember buying the sandwich haha. But she said that some guy before got her number and it was creepy. This really threw me and I didn't know to still go for the Number Close or not. For future reference, do you push through and ask for her number anyway? I know the interaction wasn't that great, but that I know will get better with practice.

    I'm of a few minds about this dialogue. Some of it was good but if you're going to go Direct, go Direct from the off-set rather than the whole "I'm having food" and then change into it.

    I wouldn't say turning to a girl mid-conversation and going "I'd flirt with you" is being direct. Don't say stuff like that, just do it. She'll know you are. That's weird, awkward and it comes across like you're gauging her reaction to flirting.

    Next time, try "Hi. I just wanted to say... (pause) You're super cute. I'd love to get to know you better" as an immediate opener then start making conversation from that. Throw in the flirtation, maybe get a bit touchy touchy Kino and see what happens.

    Get her number anyway. You never know whether or not you will ever see her again.

    Sounds like you were doing fine and she liked you. Instead of just asking for the number, plan an activity with her, then get the number to confirm the activity.
