So this is my first post. Quick background, I got into the whole pickup scene probably about 7 years ago, and I definitely found a lot of success with it. It led to me finding my ex-girlfriend that I dated for over 4 years from 09' until this year. We broke up back in May, and after months of basically just spending time doing things for myself, I'm ready to get back out there.
However my game is rusty. I'm just now starting to push myself into it. Luckily, I had a situation fall into my lap that jump-started it for me.
Long story short, two weeks ago I was out with 3 buddies, and we were leaving from one bar to go to another and these girls actually followed us and said "we want to go where you're going" (very rare, I know). So we go to another bar and I don't really talk to them much as I'm still out of sync with my game, but then I end up sitting next to one of them at a pizza place, and I proceed to sit and talk with her for about 30 mins, and get the number.
Now admittedly, not only was I rusty, but with everyone else huddled around at the table in earshot, I had a difficult time being as flirty as I want to be. But we had a decent conversation, I played it cool and laid-back and we talked about some things like our Italian background, college, work, etc, but I probably didn't come off as as interesting as I would've liked.
Regardless, I text her the next day. We go back and forth for about a week, but she is spotty with her responses and response times. I play it light, don't acknowledge the down-time. But twice I threw in "we should go for that drink soon".....and she ignores it each time.
Anyway, last Friday I posted something to her about how I assume she'll be out causing trouble in Shadyside (where we met) again, but we should get that drink the following week.
Here's the rest of the exchange:
Her: Hello AJ. Happy Friday to you. No we aren't causing any trouble tonight. I'm at my parents for the weekend. So shadyside is safe tonight lol
Me: Ohh ok. Well that's cool. Let your parents know they are doing a public service then, helping keep Shadyside quiet tonight.... I'll let the locals around there know its ok for them to walk the streets again...haha
(No response....so I ignore and text the following Monday, 3 days later)...
Me: Hi Katie, hope you had a fun weekend at home. I was in your hood the other night at the movies, too bad you weren't around. How's your schedule look this week?
(No response from Monday through today (Friday). So I threw out a hail mary)...
Me: Hi Katie, happy Friday. Haven't heard from you in a while, so I'm hoping you weren't abducted by aliens. It's either that, or you must have a thing against Italian guys
Her: (5 hours later) Hello. No aliens have not abducted me. I have just been crazy busy since I've been back. Might not mind it if aliens abducted me though I need vacation!
Me: (1+ hour later) Hey I hear you, I'm about to just pack my bags and head to the nearest island myself. One-time offer....I'll drive us to the airport if you want to tag along. Just tell me when to pick you up.
Nothing since then. She responds to 3/4 of my texts, but ignores all of my attempts at setting up the Day 2. Should I just continue to tease and slowly break her down to where she might finally answer a Day 2 request, push harder for the date, or give up?
