    Default Help My Text Routine - Is it bad? Or bad timing?

    Hey guys, completely new to PUA stuff. I read a lot about it, but haven't put much to the test. Anyways, met this girl from class (we're in college), got her number (going by M3, I only got to A2 during the first convo with her and her friend...) Texted her Monday (and as you will see, it's super dragged out):

    Me [01:52]: Whoa HB, I just saw someone that looked exactly like you! There's a little problem though..
    HB [03:18]: Haha what's the problem?
    Me [03:47]: She was wearing this velvety fuzzy Santa hat, which looked cute, but you wouldn't believe what's written on it!
    HB [05:59]: I've never seen a santa hat with stuff written on it
    Me [08:41]: It read "Naughtiest <3" in pink on the white rim of the hat. I couldn't believe it was you because she also had these really obnoxious knee-high boots on, strutting down the street. Any side jobs you want to tell me about? ;p
    HB [09:07]: Come to think of it...that's exactly what I was doing today, its not like there are exams or anything
    Me [09:33]: Oh ya I did study a little after I came back from my jog as well. Love running in this weather, you're body gets all hot on the inside but the air keeps your skin cool and tingly. Anyways, gotta attend this event at dorm. Catch ya later!
    = No response, expected =

    Exchange 1: (so far so good)
    Exchange 2: (She sounded more annoyed/distant. I know she has an exam the next morning, so I had a dilemma; either I continue with it, or I continue it the next day, which would've dragged it out for even longer and made the punchline a colder text than it already is)
    Exchange 3: (Now, if she didn't add the sarcasm at the end about exams, I would've continued the thread and it would've made a good callback for later. But the last part of her message sounded like she was completely annoyed so I stacked and stopped)

    I made up this routine based on one of Vin Dicarlo's examples in his books.
    The purpose was to:
    Create conversation from a weak first-meet
    Create sexual tension (with intrigue at first, then charged vocab at the end)
    Create a good callback

    So yea, I'd say it didn't go even close the way I wanted it to.
    What were some things that I could've done differently to produce a better result with this routine?
    Was it just because her exam frame overpowered my text's frame?
    Or is it just a bad routine in general?
    Should I take out the middle text? I feel that she got annoyed by me trying to create too much intrigue (but at the same time, dragged it out), and lost her interest.

    That 9.33 text was very clunky and a bit weak and there was no real need for it
    "Love running in this weather, you're body gets all hot on the inside but the air keeps your skin cool and tingly." She would have read that and thought it was a weird thing to say. That kind of line doesn't play in a text and it looks like you're writing her a novel.

    also after reading it again you changed from a role play of her being in a sexy outfit to you going for a jog in the cold. You went from something a bit sexy to something random and not sexy

    I agree with Centre, you went from talking about one thing that she was responding to, to something totally different like you were trying to sound deep. There are times for that, right now your trying to get that sexual tension going, keep to that for now, she can discover how deep you are later, after you've been balls deep

    8:41 was very long and took the sugar out of the joke. You should have left it of " it read naughtiest <3 in pink on the white rim of the hat". All in all it was good
    You lose some you win some, learn from your mistakes and get better!

    I follow a different school of pick-up to Vin DiCarlo so as far as his philosophy and what some of the others here have studied, my idea of game might be way off and I might be talking out my butt so take this with a pinch of salt.

    Personally though, I only use texting as a method for arranging dates after the initial meet. You approach a girl, get something going, get some good vibe and banter and at the highest point of the convo say "I'm digging this conversation. We should hang out sometime. Can I get your number?" If she gives, you're onto a winner. You carry on, make yourself scarce and then text later on to set up a date.

    However, I understand some guys use it to build rapport first. The only problem is that if you spend a bunch of time texting her witty novels you'll communicate that you're not doing anything with your spare time and you're not hard to reach, which is unattractive to a woman. She wants a busy man with a good life.

    However, in regards to the actual text exchange itself, in my ideal world you shouldn't be giving her more than she gives you. Your texts after start-up should be limited to a witty line or two and maybe a question. If I were you, I'd have started the conversation like this, however again I'm no expert so some of the seniors here are welcome to correct me;

    "Woah, that's crazy (HB's name). I saw this girl today who looked just like you, but she had a Santa hat on with "naughtiest <3" written on it. Does Santa pay cash in hand? :P How's your day going anyway?"

    Ideally, she'd respond by playing ball to the effect of "How do you know it wasn't me? :P" or something similar and then get onto how her day was and you probe from there on as previously prescribed. However, you don't want to get too hung up on texting.
