    Default Number Close – room for improvement as no reply to 1st text

    I was in the gym sitting down just finishing my protein drink before leaving when I started talking to this HB8.5-9 who was sitting near me. I made her laugh a few times and even teased her. As I realised my conversation with her was going well, I started getting nervous thinking “don’t mess this up” and “I should be asking for her number at the end of this”. Thankfully, I didn’t entirely mess up but my performance definitely suffered.

    After around 5 minutes of talking to her, it felt like it had been long enough to build up enough rapport to ask for her number, and I also thought I better go now while things are still going well. So I said “I have to go now but it would be good to continue this conversation sometime…” She said “yes it would” and then said “but I don’t have my phone on me” (it was in the changing room). So I said to her “you should give me your number” and gave her my phone. (the “we should continue this conversation sometime” seems to be my main line now when attempting to number close) Good/bad?

    After she gave me her number I shook her hand, introduced myself and asked for her name before leaving.

    A few hours later I text her:

    Me: Nice meeting u earlier in the gym, I’m ……. Got u saved in my phone as karate Fi (she does karate and her name is Fi)

    There has been no reply, though given it was quite a casual first text this hopefully isn’t the end of the world. I will probably wait a couple of days and text her again.

    These are my areas of concern:

    I have heard that you shouldn’t always leave straight after getting a girl’s number as it looks like you were only talking to them to get their number. Though, I did say “I have to go now”, I think it may have been obvious that I was just choosing to leave as I hadn’t even finished my protein drink lol. Is this really a big deal? In order to increase the chances of a date after a number close, is it better to continue talking after number closing (unless of course the actual situation prevents longer interaction)?

    Was my opening text ok?

    Any other advice?

    A few weeks ago the thought of having a conversation with a girl like her where I was making her laugh and then getting her number at the end, would seem nothing more than a dream. So, on that basis I’m happy I’ve come this far, but there is plenty of room for improvement.

    You did fine! She's probably just busy, trust me, she'll text or call you back. Be patient.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply. Believe it or not, she didn’t text me back, so a couple of days later I text her this:

    Me: Hello, hope ur dad hasn’t disowned you after ur father’s day present lol. How is ur day? I hate Mondays lol (the father’s day thing was due to a joke we had in the initial conversation)

    There also has been no reply to this. As it’s been nearly a week I now know this is a no go, but I’m wondering what went wrong. Where did I mess up?

    I don't like asking how someone's day is considering I don't know them that well (it's just a boring question in general).

    But otherwise I think you did fine, maybe she wasn't interested and gave you a wrong number or just chose not to respond. Your close was good, well timed and confident (giving her the phone instead of asking "can I have your number?"). Just keep it up, get girls laughing, do the close and you will get responses.

    Thanks for that, appreciate it and the other reply from Pierrot.

    With regards to asking how someone's day is, you're right, I couldn't think of much else to say as I hardly knew that person lol. Any ideas?

    For the fuck of it, send one more text. Try this :

    "( HB's name ), I thought you are interesting and fun to be around. I really wanted to get to know eachother a little better and spend some quality time together. If not, then let's just be friends, OK?"

    You have nothing to lose

    Very true, I do have nothing to lose and I like the sound of that text. Though, as it would be my 3rd text after 2 unanswered texts already, even if she did reply would I not be demonstrating lower value?

    I'd personally go with one last text with the lets just be friends line as suggested above. I think when u suggest that to a girl that actually does have an attraction to you it throws them off a little and keeps them on their toes and makes them want u even more. If you word it right she shouldnt rly think your needy. You never know what might happen. If she doesnt reply again, move on.

    i personally dislike the "Let's Just Be Friends" because it could just put you into friends zone and continues to ignore you.. go bold... this is what I've done in the past in similar situations and have gotten me somewhere...

    "HB's name, we are all busy, but if I can write you a 100 character txt, you can at least acknowledge it. It's cool, next drink on u! date, time, place me and I'll be there! "
