I got matched with this incredibly gorgeous woman on Tinder and started talking to her. I have 0 text game, but
I decided to give it a shot anyway.
However, it got kinda rocky pretty fast...
Me: Will I have to convert to Islam to marry you? (her name was Arabic, in retrospect it was a terrible opener)
Her: You could also put on the veil.
Me: Oh I wouldn't want to deprive you of my beautiful hair.
Her: I'm confused, are you flirting with me or are you insulting me?
Right then I was seriously confused. I now realize that the opener is idiotic, and can come off as racist.
Anyhoo, after much thought I went with this:
Me: Insulting you is the least of my intentions.
Her: What's your intention?
Me: Getting to know you better. Right now I only have a name and a beautiful smile. (I really didn't want to compliment her but any other option sounded like suicide)
Her: To you're first question, the answer is yes! Ahaha
Her(10 min later): To answer*
I haven't replied yet as it is the middle of the night. (I took between 10 and 20 min for each reply, while she always texted back almost instantly. Her last msg was around 2:30 AM )
Even though I'm convinced that I blew it, I want to reply just for the sake of practicing.
I wanted to follow with something along the lines of :
Me: Text me here XXX-XXX-XXXX, it'll be easier.
But I'm not sure about it...
What could I have done better (other than the opening) ? Any ideas on how to follow this?
