I just arrived in London from Australia on a 2-year working visa... and on my second day was at an underground station, and saw HB 8, she got on my train...then I changed trains for a different line and she turns up at my new platform...I went for it.
Asked her if I needed to swipe my ticket again (I knew I didn't)...conversati on got started. Turns out we got off at the same station (awesome). We started walking out of the station, still chatting about crap, and I asked her if she was doing anything now ( with the intention of instant dating her). Before I could ask her to coffee, she said "did you want to do something?".
I said yeah, "did you want to grab a coffee?"...as I was new in town, she took me to this cool café nearby, which had heaps of quirky decorations and she suggests we go upstairs to the sitting room where no one else was with old Victorian chairs and couches. GREAT PLACE.
We just talked and talked. She was really chatty, and never let the conversation die. I had plenty of stories to tell about Australia and my travels. She kept playing with her hair and smiling and telling me about her travels and family. After 2 hours, I tried to cut loose as I thought this has to end at some point, but she kinda deflected it and we kept talking for another hour. She asked me if I was single, played with her hair some more, and laughed and smiled a lot. great impressions.
Eventually, we decided to go, got her number, flirted some more, not too much kino as we were sitting a bit apart, but managed to get some light contact in, which was received well. Walked her home, and we kissed on each cheek, and I said something like "it was nice meeting out, we should definitely catch up again, bye", as I crossed the road she smiled and waved at me.
This instant was amazing. I left buzzing. I didn't expect it to go so well, and she was a good sort and she had a great personality and good energy.
I txt her the next day, saying, my phone finally works and that this is my first txt in London "..this must be a great honour for you? :P"
She replied positively to that and we txt a few more times. I told her things I had done during the day like discovering the city, walking around, applying for jobs, and that my room mate is a DJ and he loves blasting sets in the living room. But then she started putting hours in between txts.
When I finally got a reply late at night, I teased her about it "I thought youd fallen asleep on the train and woken up in some distant land haha. bla bla my day was good, walked around more but I was lost with my tour guide (her)"... She replies a couple hours later but im asleep. I wake up and see her msg. PLaying along she says fortunately she didn't end up in some distant land and apologies for the late reply, shes been busy..then says "Ah, cool, knew you would need me again at some point!"
That was her LAST msg...its been 4 days now. I kind of see that my reply was too keen I reckon...
"Haha well the hospitality so far has been very good. And im sure you like learning about Australia and our pet kangaroos "
then NOTHING. Surely after a 3 hour instant date, you would get more off her than a complete flake out. but im sure ive gone VERY wrong somewhere, its just not so obvious. Please help with some advice.
Although I did make it worse I think by txting her the next day after not hereing from her saying I was out having a social drink and that she should come along...Nothing form that either, i was surprised because she seemed attracted and keen. Im pretty annoyed that I never got to here from her again... but oh well lol. Ill have to learn from this!
