Screwed up big time, but have a chance to recover...thoughts?
Used one of my meet up texts last week on the girl that I want to have an LTR with:
"Dear ____, you are cordially invited to (movies/bar/etc) at (time). (Dinner/Lunch) will be served. Sincerely, (name).
PS - (inside joke)"
She was busy that day, so I told her we should hang out before the semester ends. She immediately asked me what I was doing on Thursday. I said I was free and asked her what the plans were. She said to surprise her, so I did just that.
Met up for sushi. I paid for her (not really AFC; I was brought up this way ). It went really well - she kept laughing, smiling, the conversation going, etc. Got to the point where she said she'd like to try my cooking, so I invited her over after finals.
Walked back to the train, and she brought up "blowing up my kitchen" before I leave the country for a bit. Good, right?
Anyway, I texted her a funny pic over the weekend at 3am and she turned out to be awake. She was at a concert and boasted about how her night was more exciting than mine. I said something like this:
"How about I take you out one of these nights and you'll see that it's more exciting than a concert? "
No reply. At all. I texted some nonsense to her late last night and she was awake (unexpected again). Called her out in a joking manner about not replying and she said that I "tried to compete with the concert." This is where I farked up:
"Haha, I think I can compete with the concert =p
Beside, you haven't tried my cooking yet! "
"I don't like arrogance "
Crash and burn! I took it as a polite rejection. Recovered:
"Arrogance? Ouchhhhhh. Thought you appreciated sarcasm? Lol" SUPER BETA
She sent a "two page" goodnight text and I gave her a simple one. I'm considering freezing out for a bit - wait until finals are over and then say that we can "blow up my kitchen" or something without sounding too pushy (obviously) and acting like the previous convo didn't happen.
I think I'm gonna use her to practice, though. I might end up chasing her away, but hey, big risk = big reward, right?
Always leave her better than you found her.
