Alright here's the story. I am fairly handsome and get along ok with women so I typically don't have trouble at least getting a foot in the door. (Closing is another story for another thread.)
Anyway, I meet a cute girl (a legit 9) in Vegas at the rental car desk last time I'm there and waste no time getting some interest built up. I have my golf clubs with me, she's into golf. I tell her we should play, and she tells me that she'd love to, she's off on Monday and Tuesday. The close is a little sketchy, I end up just giving her my email so now I have to wait on her. She knows I'm leaving town late on Monday.
I hear nothing from her, then I get an email from her on Monday afternoon. She says she thinks I'm cute but she has a boyfriend. So I tell her that that's too bad, I think she's attractive and we could have had fun. I also tell her that I'm going to keep her info handy and that next time I'm in town, I'm trying again and that hopefully by then her boyfriend will have screwed up. Pretty direct interaction.
Anyway, she emails back (very quickly) and says something about "maybe... we'll see" and we exchange a few more flirty emails before calling it quits.
So now I'm heading back to Vegas. I am definitely going to contact her. Just wondering if anyone has advice as to what tactic I should use?
Since I was pretty direct, I was thinking of just sticking with that and telling her I want to see her. But I didn't know if I should go the golf route again since maybe that can give her an emotional safe zone (we're just playing golf, not cheating) and then just see how that goes or should I go for more of a "let's just party and see what happens" message.
Either way I'm realistic enough to know I'm fighting an uphill battle, but several things make me think she had genuine interest. She could have mentioned the boyfriend in person when we talked. She could have not emailed me at all. She could have left out the part about thinking I was cute. She could have just said "thanks but no thanks" when I still expressed interest after learning she had a boyfriend. So I think there's at least some hope. Just trying to figure out the best play.
