Hey guys, I did a few approaches yesterday on my university campus and I'd like a little feedback to help myself improve. All comments are welcome.
The first set was at a coffee shop. I only had a few minutes before I had to walk to class. I saw this cute chinese girl studying at a table, so I bought my coffee and walked over. I've been getting more comfortable confidently sitting across from girls. So I sat down at her table and delivered a modified version of the direct opener I've been using all week:
Me: "Hey, I just saw you from over there and you look really cute. I had to come say hi."
Her: *Smiles* aww thanks!
Me: I can only stay for two minutes because I have a class.
We talked about the course she was studying, what she was doing in school, and how her day has been. I found out she has a boyfriend, but I said that we could still be friends and that I'm not the jealous type.
I literally had to go to class two minutes later so I told her it was nice meeting her and that I'd text her later. She smiled, said goodbye and waved.
I texted her a half hour later:
Me: Nice meeting you. Here's my number : )
Her: Nice meeting you too : ) 902? You from Nova Scotia?
Me: Yeah that's where I'm from. Been living here for the last 3 years. Shame I had class so soon.
Her: Haha it's okay. Enjoy your class : p
Me: Play nice now. : p do you play sports?
Her: blah blah blah sports
We talked about part time jobs, how she works at a chinese restaurant her parents own and I teased her a bit.
Talked about her ethnicity.
Her: Lol, so what's your last name?
Me: XXXXXXXX. You just want to creep me...
Her: No lol. Your last name in my phone is currently ------------- haha
Me: you could always just put a happy face by mine : )
This convo ended yesterday at 11:22am. It's 8:44am the next day.
Sorry for the long post. I'm curious if I should have handled the boyfriend differently. I know you can push past it, because sometimes they throw it at you as a shit test. She definitely really has a boyfriend though.
Did my last text come on too strong or is she seeing how invested I am by whether or not I respond to one word texts?
This was an interesting case and all feedback is helpful.
