How bad did I mess this call up?
I got this girl's number from OkC and I got her to agree on a date on Thursday, but she didn't have her work schedule so we had to wait to finalize our plans. She said she'd get her schedule on Friday and let me know what was up.
So Friday rolls around and of course she doesn't get in touch with me (what else is new?), and so today I sent her a hook text that just said "Well Smiles I had somewhat of an epiphany about you..." About three hours went by and no response, but I could see that she read the text (the wonder of the iPhone, I wish I hadn't seen she read it) right when I sent it. No big deal, if she responds she responds and if she doesn't I'll call tomorrow.
Well then she started creeping my OkC profile and was online, so I was like, "Fuck this, I'm gonna phone her and give her shit for creeping my profile." I call her and she answers, and she tells me she was about to return my text and what not. I jokingly say, "Sure, sure." With an audible laugh thrown in to make sure she knew I was joking. Then we arrange the date, I tell her that I'll get back to her with the finer details, and then I just start some casual conversation. She asks what my epiphany was, and I say with a laugh, "Oh, just that you only want me for my boyish good looks and devilish charm!"
She cuts me off pretty quickly and tells me that she has to leave the house to get to work, but can we continue our conversation later (this is where my AFC starts jumping out of my chest). I completely misinterpret what she's saying and ask, "You mean like tonight or tomorrow, or what?" (the reason I responded this way was because I'm going out tonight, but I should have just said that from the get go). She responds that she won't get off work until late, so not tonight, and I tell her that's good because I was going to be out anyways.
Ok, so how bad is it? HAHA. I realize I got into AFC territory when I called her after the text, but I had thought that through. I could see she was online, I saw her creeping my profile, and I had a good reason to call and tease her a bit. But the whole "You mean like tonight or tomorrow, or what?" thing has really thrown me off. Really bad response and I realize that.
My plan of attack going forward is to not contact her tomorrow and send her the date plans later in the evening on Monday. But what do you guys think? How big of a disaster is this? How should I move forward?
