    Default what would you do with this email exchange

    So basically I went to a play a couple nights ago, didnt even really want to go in the first place, but turns out the lead in the play was this really cute girl. I was infatuated and had to talk to her, so i found her email address online and decided to email her. Heres how that went (with names and info removed).

    Hey,
    In all honesty I was not looking forward to watching (the musical), but your performance had me enthralled for the entire play.
    You are an extremely talented actress, the program said you were a
    small town girl and it is noticeable on stage. As a college kid here
    in LA who has taken one acting class and was told to seek work, I
    would really love to talk to you and get some advice. Plus, to be
    totally honest, I thought you were quite beautiful.
    Sincerely
    (me)

    and she responded:

    Hey (me),

    Thank you! :-) I really appreciate that, I'm glad you liked it.
    How'd you get my email address? I'd be happy to answer any of your questions...

    Thanks,
    (her)

    to which i responded:

    I actually got it off of imdb, I also saw on there you've done some
    screen acting. Right now I'm trying to get an agent, I was wondering
    if you pretty much have to get a commercial agent and do some
    commercials before you can get a Hollywood agent?
    Thanks,
    (me)

    and she didnt respond for a few days, i didnt think she was going to, so i wrote this:

    I know we don't know each other at all but you seem like a really cool
    person, and I would really love a chance to get to know you. I hope I
    don't weird you out or anything, its just hard to find genuine people
    around here and you seem like someone who is.
    Hope we can talk sometime,
    (me)

    and she responded:

    Hi (me),

    Sorry for the delay; we have been in the midst of traveling to San Fran. Hope all is well on your end.
    As far as your questions...I think you want to strive for an agent that will get you auditions in all of those industries. I actually have not conquered the LA tv and film world. I am right out of college and would have gone to New York anyway so I'm probably not the person to ask for starting out, but to answer your question to the best of my knowledge...I would say you'd definitely want an agent who can represent you in all aspects. If I were you, I would enroll in classes and get your face out there, get to know other people, other actors, and ask them...find out the top agencies and get to know the important names within the business and then go from there. If you really like it then it is all worth it, but I can tell you it is not all it is cracked up to be! ;-)

    Good luck!

    and i responded:

    So I've heard... So you would rather work on broadway than in LA? Do you ever get tired of it all?
    (me)

    and she hasnt responded. This isnt just a girl I want to hook up with, I'd really like to get to know her. She has a lot going for her and I'm sure her thought process is "why is this guy emailing me, how weird. he must be a loser." but i have no way to contact her, her fb is blocked. so my question to you is what can i do to get her to open up to me and let me get to know her? im not a loser and have a lot to offer a girl, i just dont know how to show that without looking like a creep. i dont want to bs her either, because shes not dumb. also, shes from wisconsin and seems like a really down to earth girl.

    Default Re: what would you do

    I'm not an expert at pick up, but I don't think you are going to be able to date her since she travels around a lot. Besides, your conversation has a "business like" feel to it, not a flirty/romantic one. Of course she is happy to give some advice but I don't think she is going to want to date a guy she has never met, got her email from a website, and emailed her twice in a row (you should try not to unless a large period of time elapses). The fact that she said "good luck" is also not a good sign, it's something you kind of politely say to someone you don't intend on seeing again.

    That said, I give you props on being proactive and emailing her. I mean why not take a shot right? I respect the ambition, but I think it is hard to seduce someone entirely through email (it would be different if you got her email in person after the show or something). But again my text/email game pales in comparison to some of the guys here, so maybe one of them be of more assistance. I would just say keep your options open and be ready to move on.

    I would forget it ever happened. This started off on the wrong foot. Just let it go. There are plenty of women in the world.
