Re: Need help with cute Japanese girl I met
Time constraints? Are both of you only in bejing for a short time?
Japanese all know basic English. She would know or be able to easily figure out what you mean from that text. They all have dictionaries built into their phones. Avoid idioms if her English is not that good. If there's something you wanna say IN Japanese, I can help you out with that, you just have to copy and paste. But you don't wanna pretend you're proficient, just something to show her your interested perhaps. Say you learned it from another Japanese you met yesterday or whatever. Perhaps the jealousy will set in.
As far as what exactly to text her, I can't say. Just be playful and fun. An invitation that sounds like a suggestion is often more successful for me. "let's..." they use a lot. "let's enjoy some ice cream on Wednesday! I feel like I have to try that matcha flavor you mentioned before." or whatever.
If this progresses at all, post again and I'll give you any advice I've got.
The only failure is a squandered opportunity.
