    Default Botched first text

    So I met this HB8 at starbucks and got her number. But I sent her a text immediately telling something super lame.

    Figure out how to text / flirt and do it well!

    On that note, if you get a girl's number, call her - don't text!

    What did you text her that you think was so lame anyway? Might help me come p with some ideas.

    Uh-huh. Did she respond? If she hasn't yet, don't text again. On that note, never ever ever use the word "holler" or "holla" in text or conversation.

    No, not really. She'll probably respond. She probably doesn't know what to say back. You inital text didn't do anything to invite her / entice her to respond. She may be wondering whether you're just like the rest of the guys - she needs to see something unique.

    See those numbers on your phone? See the number she gave you? Punch those numbers in and hit the "Call" button. You'll then magically hear her voice. Ask her how she's doing. Tell her you plan to go for a walk this weekend and ask if she would join you for the walk and coffee. Simple and unique. No games.

    Don't "holler".

    Some women like texting. Some don't. You know her better than I do. If she's away, I won't over-text her (wait at least every other day). I just don't see the point of texting to carry on a conversation. If you want to charm her face to face, wait until she's back, call, go out and do it. Too many men text and text just to text about nothing; it just doesn't seem unique and I'd get bored easily of that. However, if she's responding to your texts, go with it - it's obviously working then.

    When to call is not my strong suit, but ignore advice to call her early, IMO. You call after you've had a first date, and MAYBE to confirm a meeting time for the first date you set over TXT. Yes, your text was lame. And yes don't ever say stupid high-school stuff that you say to pick up girls near the pretzel shop in the mall (holla).

    "Hey, I just got my laundry back. I had this tiny mexican fold all my clothes. Somehow one of your red bras got in there and turned my underwear pink."

    I am a girl, and I won't go out with a guy without an intial phone-conversation. I see asking me out via text as lame; I see the man as more confident if he picks up the phone to ask me out. A man's voice can be very sexy - especially if he sounds confident and sincere in asking me out. That said, I do know some women who don't care about that or actually prefer to not talk before. However, if the girl doesn't respond to your texts within a reasonable amount of time or hints that she would prefer a phone call, don't continue texting as that would only turn her off.
