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.
