    Default Failed number close LOL should I even bother with an Email?

    Pretty sad I'm even asking this as I'm pretty sure nothing will come out of it but figured it doesn't hurt to send a quick email and try...what have I got to lose?

    Background is I went to a corporate meeting with people from my work from all the branches in Los Angeles area. Was talking with this girl there, prettiest girl there, just my type. No flirting or anything as it was a strictly professional meeting with all the top dogs. At the end she walked out with me (she pretty much waited for me to finish talking with the meeting leader) and we talked on the way out.

    I said to her "you know what, lemme get your number." She looked confused, saying "My number??" so i said, "yeah or email works too, I like to do a lot of networking". She then gave me her email and we both left. I dont expect much out of this but figured doesn't hurt to send her one email. I just never got a girls email before, always went right for the number so I'm not sure how I should word the email. Any advice?

    One thing I want to say is I know I should just forget about it and move on but I figured whats the harm in at least sending one quick email? 90% chance it'll go ignored but hey there's the 10% chance she was actually interested (she seemed interested when we talked) and it could lead to something.

    You answered your own question lol, one quick email won't hurt.

    You kind of broke your frame by changing to email.


    All in all you have sound logic there's still a percentage chance you can pull her by email but no chance if you never take action.


    Go for it!

    Here's a quick draft of what I think I should write, any suggestions you'd make?

    Hey _____,

    It was fun meeting you today! That meeting was...informative, to say the least! Seemed like the online training all over again. Anywho, I'd like to talk with you more - lemme get ur number and if u play your cards right I may hit you up again in the future! After all, you are talking to the future ___________ CEO after all, better start kissing ass now! (kidding!)

    -Johnny

    Disagree. I wouldn't send the email, unless it's for the purposes of networking. You set up expectations at a professional level with the intent of being romantic--in other words, you were incongruent.

    Don't mess with this kind of shit when it's your career at stake. Just move on and next time show your intentions more clearly.

    Well for the sake of length of the post I didn't want to explain the job itself - we are all new employees (1-2 months max) and this was a onboarding meeting with the top dogs, we're both new employees. I don't plan to stay with the company too long, just until I find better full time work. So neither her nor I are top dogs, just the people conducting the meeting are.

    Tl;dr - don't care about by job as I'm probably quitting for a better position soon.

    *My opinion for you to email her is contingent on the fact that you wont be able to contact her again otherwise*


    Too much for an initial message. The energy is good in your email but it's way too bulky for a first message. If you didn't get the number in person after the first meeting you shouldn't try and get it after the first email.


    I suggest bringing up something from the conversation, try to stray away from work talk as she more than likely wants to think nothing of it.


    Try to see if she responds first before writing her that much.

    honestly bro I think if you had stuck to your guns about the number you could have got it. Her waiting for you to finish talking and then walking with you seem like iois to me.

    but you farked up when you changed from number to email, then farked up worse when you said its for networking.

    next time if a female acts like that when you ask for her number just neg her then try again.

    ill use her response as an example.

    her: my number??
    you: yeah your phone number. You know what that is right? 11 digits you enter in your phone that allows you to call or text people.

    its not the best line I know, but when delivered with a grin and said in the right tone it should work.

    anyways id agree with duke don't email her. If you're still determined to game her wait till you see her again then build attraction and try for the number again.

    You guys are right, no doubt in that. Her waiting for me and engaging in convo on the way out was clearly an IOI. I stumbled in my approach and fucked up in my wording. Coulda recovered but instead made up an excuse as to why I wanted her number.

    But my point is that I really have nothing to lose, only to gain by contacting her...even if it is a slim chance it is successful. And I don't ever plan on seeing her again as this was a 1 time meeting. Once I get her number I'm very confident in all other aspects of my game that I can get her out on a date and end up with her clothes on my floor the same night.

    I guess I should reword the question, its not about IF i should contact her, its HOW i should contact her.
