Yesterday, something incredible happened (like 1 chance in a million for it happening).
I was at an open air music festival and I suddenly noticed this HB8 next to me. I had a good look at her and I really couldn't believe my eyes. It was one of those chicks that is on the dating website POF (plenty of fish). I specifically remembered her features as I really wanted to send her a message. For some reason, the website kept deleting my accounts, so I eventually gave up.
Seeing this girl in real life was like a wish coming true. I couldn't resist, so I approached her. I told her that I think I had seen her somewhere before (said her nickname) and then she seemed embarrassed all of a sudden. We chatted a very short bit and I asked if she wanted to meet for drinks. She said she lived in another town and she just came for the festival, but she offered to meet this Sunday instead. I said ok, we exchanged phone numbers, and then went back to my group of friends.
I sent her a message this morning and she seemed evasive (is going to another open-air concert with her friend). Since the place of the concert was really close to my place, I offered to join them. No response so far.
Well, I guess I screwed up my approach. I should have talked a bit longer to create comfort, but she was with her female friend and it was kind of weird. Too bad... will do better next time. It's still her loss though, I am a great guy
The lesson I learned is that you need to establish some sort of connection before getting a phone number or you probably won't see the girl again. cold approach should not be too cold either
