    Default Help me salvage/close this.

    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.

    Looks like your doing real good dude. What I'd do is add her on Facebook so you can have a chat where you know if the message was read (I haven't used match so I don't know how their messaging works) and have some more small talk and then act like you have to go or like its a burden (in a joking manner) to reply on the computer and tell her to text you and give her your number.

    If you stick on Match and are replying to this message, I'd tell her where by and say "we should catch up sometime, in the mean time text me, because [some reason texting is easier for your situation]". Then build some rapport and slowly get flirtier (over the course of a conversation or 2, not saying to drag it out for a few weeks) and then when you feel close to the height of a conversation, manipulate it to where telling her you should meet up at a certain place sounds natural. I'd suggest doing something that would be something friends would do (like bowling) that doesn't have the "date" atmosphere, but since you don't specify your interest directly she'll wonder and cause her to grow feelings throughout the night as you show her an awesome time.

    So, what about the part at the end when she says "This is why you need friends on Match!". Do you see this as an IOD or am I reading too much into it?

    It could be a sh!t test or it is an IOD. You should get her number then catch up sometime. When you meet her in person you can get a WAY better idea if she's into you. If she's not into you, you can make her your friend and wing woman! There's nothing better than having an attractive wing woman.

    You are in a win-win situation here!
