Long time listener first time caller.
Looking for a bit of quick advice as to some suggestions as to where to go next. Here's the scenario:
Last Friday went down to a local bar looking to enjoy a bit of socialising with my mate and some of the after work corporates having an end of week drink. Once there however I spotted this gorgeous 8.5 / 9 working behind the bar. Young, slim, blonde, and a killer smile - just how I like them. Been a while since I'd done any really serious game, but decided to have a crack anyway.
Thankfully we were beside a birthday party with a bowl of chocolates and lollipops. With one of each I opened by asking her which one she'd like to have. She chose chocolate, I made her play a game of paper, scissors, rock which she won so I dipped my hand back in the bowl to get her a chocolate (hey I'm not giving her mine!).
Throughout the night there was heaps of interaction and my wing was my spotter for her always looking in my direction. A bit of banter, her nickname was Barbie so I called her Malibu Stacey, played traffic lights with the lollipops, and built a yes ladder. This was all very stealthy and I swear only my wing knew what was going on - no one else had a clue.
Last question of the yes ladder was do you like presents (yes - duh). Then I sent her away and told her to come back soon. Gave her a lollipop with my number attached which she put in her pocket then immediately took out and put in her bra instead (IOI for sure!). I stayed a little longer, gave her a 4 kiss on the cheek hug goodbye, and left it in her hands to text me.
Nothing. All week. But hey, girls can flake at any time right? Then Thursday I get a single text from her which was so big it was spread over three messages:
"Hey (my name)! Its (her name)/barbie from the (bar she works at). sorry i took so long 2 txt u. just wanted 2 tell u that i was stoked u gave me your no. and would've def been keen 2 catch up again with u but i've had my eye on some1 4 a while now and over the last week they've finally shown some interest so i'd really like 2 see how things turn out with that person 1st. sorry about that but like i said i was stoked 2 get ur no. and wish we couldve caught up. and btw.. thanks 4 the chocolate! "
Now I'd be foolish to give up I think. She could have kept that text much shorter, and I was clearly on her mind all week. Then again it's not exactly wise to read too much into texts.
What I want is ideas as to where to go from here.
I'll be back at the bar in a few hours. Best angle of attack I can think of is to say I just wanted to be friends - after all I don't have many hot female friends and this would be an awesome girl to have in my group.
P.S. There is no one-itis on this. During the week I've had a couple of k-closes and a number close but this girl is a challenge now!
