Hey guys. 1st I'm brand freaking new here. Could use some advice. I ran into a girl on match.com that I went to high school with 12 years ago. She was super popular, I wasn't. Anyways, I'm extremely interested in taking this girl out. I'm just going to copy/paste the chat so far, and would LOVE some feedback/advice on the next step. Thank you so much!
ME: Well Shit. We're both caught now. Hi J****. We went to HS together. We never talked much. I'm Stephen
HB: Hey Stephen, I remember you. How's it going? And we are from BH...everyone already knows exactly what's going on in our lives. Haha.
ME: So true... Things are good. It was funny. I was like, who's THIS girl that popped up on my daily matches. So I'm looking at through your photos and I was like damn this guy your with (your brother) looks like this guy from BH... then I looked at your username and felt like an idiot. I've been doing this match thing for literally, a week. Its weird. Is most everyone on here COMPLETELY crazy or it it just me?
HB: I've been on it for about three weeks now. I would say about half and half but pretty easy to weed out in the first email or two!
ME: :-) Cool! Thanks! Good luck out there!
(made her wait about 8 hours after this text)
ME: So... I live with my best friend (S*** P*******), you may or not remember him). Well, I told him that I ran across you. We were looking at your photos and got into a debate when we got to the one with your hair up. Anyways, we made a stupid bet. Loser pays for dinner tomorrow night. HERE IT IS...Are you one of those girls who take FOREVER to do her hair and make-up, or does it just look that way? (Can't tell you which side I betted on) No pressure. Help me out J****. ;-) Stephen
HB: Lol. That's funny. But solid question. The day with my hair up was a special occassion and hours went in to it! But every other pic and every other day I get ready as fast as possible and makeup is done in the car in about 5 minutes. Who wins?
ME: Hell yes! We were talking about THAT picture specifically. The over/under was an hour. I took the over (betting that was a wedding dress or something). You're fun. Thanks for having my back on that one.
HB: Lol. Shit. Can you tell it's a wedding photo?? I should take it down then!
ME: Well... literally every recent picture I had was one with the ex (fiance). So no judgement here. Keep it IMO. What part of ATL are you living?
HB: Ok...but when you look at it do you think...that might be a wedding photo? This is why you need friends on Match! I live off of ******* btw midtown and Buckhead. What about you guys?
FYI none of my match.com photos have my ex in them.
