Ok, so here's the scenario:
I met this girl in the elevator, asked her out for a drink and gave her my card and told her to e-mail me her number - she never did.
So I went to her office downstairs and left her a note with her co-worker with my number on it. - she texts me, I say I will call her that night, call her and get voicemail (but can't leave a message) so I text her this:
Hey Natalie, did you lose my number again or are you just playing hard to get?
- Lol I called you back yesterday and you didn't answer
It takes awhile for my phone to get used to strangers...so what time you get off work? We'll share an elevator
-Lol, I don't know if I'll be in the office at all today
(It's lunch time so I just call her, she doesn't pick up)
I'm trying to get you in trouble so you'll be sent back to the office
-Lol you are so funny!! But I have to let you know that I'm kinda seeing someone right now and I don't want to give you the wrong impression, hopefully you still wanna be my friend
Well I don't even know you yetm but you're kinda cute so I'll give you a shot...I can always use fashion advice. Let's grab a drink or lunch sometime.
- Sounds like a plan
How bout tomorrow?
- I can't tomorrow, I can do Friday after work or sometime next week
Let's be spontaneous...what time you get off work today?
- 4:30, but I go to school after work
Still in college? You're probably too young for me anyway, good thing we're just friends
- Yep, still in college but I think YOU are too young for me!!
Heard that one before, somehow they always change their minds after a date with me-good thing you'll never find out!
-Yeah good thing!!
Wow I hope you're this fun in person. Let's do drinks Friday.
- You're soo silly. Friday is fine
Hey, looking forward to seeing you for more than 20 seconds this time, just try not to embarass me
-I'll try, what time do you get out of work today?
Around 5, you don't need to get all dolled up or anything, as long as you wear that cute outfit I met you in
-I'm not gonna make it today, I have a meeting at 5:30 and will be done around 6:30
Dude, did you just stand me up!? lol that's fine, can't wait to see how you're gonna make it up to me
- I'm sorry! Didn't mean to, my office always does this
(I then text her twice next week)
If you're not smiling just think of me! That'll work...
Hey, you seem like a cool girl Natalie, I'd like to get to know you better, let's meet up after work next week, how does Wednesday work?
(I then wait another week and text this on a Friday)
Beautiful day, sun is shining, summer is here! Can you recommend a good happy hour spot around the office?
- Who's this??
That cute guy works upstairs, the one you stood up...yeah, thanks god it wasn't an actual date, or you woulda been screwed! I don't tolerate flakes.
- Lol hi you, you must be the guy who was flirting with my coworker in the elevator the other day and freaked her out, (I asked her what time Natalie gets off work) btw you have a reputation in my office as the stalker so I just thought it was a smart thing to stay away from you
Thanks for the feedback guys
