i like the logic there. to expand, if she tells you a time she's free, even indirectly, she helps plan the date, which is an investment. all investment, no matter how small, is good because the more work she puts in (invests) the harder it is to walk away. i hadn't thought of that.
another question, is there a time of day thats better to text? both her and in general?
if it makes a difference she works evenings b/c she keeps the day open so she can audition, film, etc
