    Thumbs down Using cliffhangers, I don't think I'm doing it right

    Alright so I read here on the forum that it's great to use cliffhangers. Well, I don't think I'm doing it right.

    I met this girl on Tinder and she always replies really fast. Sometimes too fast.

    Well, today I decided to use some techniques here and here's how my conversation is going. The conversation is in Spanish but I'll translate.

    ME: "Today is a day for Mate (tea) :3"
    HER: "Hahahahaha yes!"
    HER: "It's really cold hahahaha"
    ME: "Yes I am excited to get my apartment in *HER TOWN NAME* because it's always warmer there"
    * I am looking for an apartment in her town which is an hour away. She took a bit to respond to this but I think what I did wrong here is instead of relating to her, when she said it's cold I (accidentally) went ahead and told her my situation is colder than hers.
    HER: "Yeah? Look at you, that's great "
    HER: "Either way, it's horrible cold here hahahha"
    HER: "As well, I can't imagine what it is there, poor* hahahahaha"
    *Poor they say in spanish to be like 'aww poor you', no real translation I can think of in English
    ME: "Hahaha right, well there's not much difference but something"
    ME: "Something I like to do when it's cold..."

    Well, I thought a cliffhanger like that would be good but now I realized it was probably really weird to sent something like that, it's been an hour and no response (she usually texts back really fast).

    Any help on this?

    You definitely aren't doing it right. She has to be properly invested first before you throw out a cliffhanger like that.

    Also, you could be implying sex (which if it is the case, she might be unwilling to respond to).

    Here's what you can say:

    ME: Aren't ya gonna finish that sentence for me?

    Yeah I realized right after I said it how horrible it was.

    I was thinking about trying to text a half hour later something like "Oh shit I thought I finished that" then finish it.

    Good advice though, I'd rather seem more confident than not. Just sent that and I'm hoping I get a good reply.

    I actually wasn't implying sex, I only realized that it could be taken that way after I sent it :O

    Just part the learning process. All good. Just be more aware of the implications the next time round.

    Wanna add 1 more thing as well... it feels to me as if the whole "weather" topic was played out a tad too much. Time to move on from that.
