I'm new to the forum, as well as the "Game" in general. I'm a late bloomer, and not super experienced, but I'm getting there.
Got a beautiful woman's number while waiting in line for an art event. She's about 10 years older than me. I'm 24, she's mid 30's. We had a brief, light exchange in the line, we exchanged numbers (under the pretext of artistic collaboration), and that was that. She texted me minutes after getting my number to tell me it was great to meet me, and to enjoy the art exhibit.
I want this woman to take me seriously as a potential boyfriend/date/whatever. I'm 24 and currently just an intern. I don't have a lot of money. She's likely more: 1) confident, sure of herself 2) financially independent 3) more experienced sexually and in general terms.
I made my intentions clear from the beginning. I think women her age appreciate the no-BS approach.
TEXTS BETWEEN US FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO ANALYZE:
So yeah. The next day I sent her these series of texts:Me: Hey ####, it's ####. Save this number to your phone instead. I don't have a texting plan on the other.
Me: This is kind of a forward question, but are you single? I'd like to get coffee with you sometime. Yeah I'm pretty blunt.
Her: Thanks. I am single. Bluntness is never taken for granted. tea would be nice. I leave Monday until the 9th. Any day after that.
Me: I had a feeling you'd appreciate the bluntness, haha. When do you get off work during the week?
Her: I have a show on the 11...the 12 I'm off..Tuesday
This was over a day ago. I'm backing off for now because she's busy and away on some kind of trip, but should I continue to text and push the envelope or just chill til we go out?Me: You free at 9pm on Monday? We'll have a couple of drinks at (COCKTAIL LOUNGE).
Me: Cool. 9pm, Monday the 11th. Over-priced cocktails. Hell yeah. << Major FAIL on my part. Not a good way to show confidence in my own decision-making.
Her: I'm not a big drinker...so we can go to a cafe instead.. If u prefer.
Me: We'll stick with (COCKTAIL LOUNGE) for now.. since we've got a week there's always time to find something better.. You live in Manhattan or Brooklyn?
Me: Because I'm trying to stalk you. << Took a risk humor-wise
Me: Lol. Kidding. Just wanted to make sure the location is convenient for you.
Her: Ill be around (ADDRESS)
Her: I saw your work... Very nice
Me: Gracias! Send me a link to your stuff too.
Her: I'm redoing my website...took it down..Google me...just a little actress
Me: I watched your reel. Oh my dayum. You're talented!
Me: I like the part where you slap some dude upside the head.
Me: I actually took theater arts in high school. The teacher trolled me and my buddy and made us perform the most corny, out of date skit about "getting bettys" at a high school. I had to say such great lines as "The world is our oyster". It was bad. Try saying that goofiness with a straight face. << try to relate to her by telling a story from my past
Her: Lol!! That's funny!
Her: Thanks I have to update it.
If anybody wants to give me some pointers, I would be very appreciative. I'm not obsessed with this woman or super invested, but she is gorgeous and I'd like to make the most of this and not screw it up with my weirdness/lack of experience.
