I'm a bit new to game and wouldn't mind some advice from the pros before I go further with this one and screw it up lol. I go to 2 gyms in my area. One of the gyms, I go like once a week to. In the next 2 weeks only, i'll be going to it every day though. At this gym, a new girl started working at the reception and the first time I saw her I chatted her up about random stuff for like half an hour. A couple days back I went back and again saw her and chatted her up for half an hour before my workout. Basically our conversation just took off, lots of laughter, IOIs, I gave a lot of DHVing and we basically talked about our personal lives, work, food, lifestyle, etc. After half an hour, she talked about trying to find another job as a bank teller and I told her maybe I can help getting her foot in the door b/c I know people in the industry, and she mentioned well if I ever see you here again b/c you never come at this gym (kind of said it in a flirty way) so I told her how about I grab your number and i'll text you and let you know what I hear. She said ok no problem, after your workout drop by the desk and i'll give it. I agreed. An hour flies and after my workout I drop by and talked to her for a couple minutes and basically told her I had to go b/c I was already late to work and kind of paused waiting for the number but she then changed her mind and tells me i'm just going to take your email down instead so i'm like alright and I gave my e-mail to her and took off. If I got her number, I was thinking about escalating it on the spot and asking her out on the Friday night but b/c of the backfire, I cancelled those actions.
I think she's interested, but what I learnt from our conversation was that she was sexually harrassed a lot at her previous job (which she told me about) and she also just quit a bartending and waitress job so she's probably used to getting hit on all the time and auto-rejects on the spot. I think these may be the two reasons why she didn't give her number out...plus i've only met her twice for an hour in total, so maybe trust issues?
So my questions for you guys are:
1) Did I mess anything up from the beginning to the end? Should I have done something differentely?
2) What and how should I continue this? Should I give up on her already or should I reattempt something slowly with her to maybe gain trust, etc.
