Hey guys, first time posting so i'll give a little background... Got out of an LTR a couple years ago and haven't been super interested in getting girls for a while. Have dabbled here and there and never have problems pulling what i want, but recently decided to step up my game.
I tend towards what i call the surpise approach. (Maybe there's a term for this that i'm not aware of?) I scope out a target and then proceed to game other chicks while i keep an eye on the target and watch for/exchange ioi with her. I wait for the last possible opportunity and the move in and normally get a number within 5 minutes and then disappear. Sometimes i have to deviate and move in more quickly if i feel like she's losing interest. This is just my natural game and it almost always works for me, so i'm sticking with it for now.
So here's my situation... Went to a concert the other night, last minute decision. It was early in the evening and wasn't really planning to game. But that's besides the point. Ended up next to an HB8 for most of the show. She looked like she was alone and we were exchanging some glances and smiles. Long story short, approached her after music was over. Chatted for a minute, asked if she was with her bf and she said "i'm not sure?". I told her "that's interesting", got her number, then disappeared. So the exchange took not even 5 minutes and i headed back to my bro's place with her number. Sent the "save this number" text within 20 min and got no reply that night. Then i proceeded the next evening with the following texts:
Me: So i met this really cute girl last night and she gave me her number. Can you help me find her?
No reply, so 3ish hours later...
Me: Noooooo! Woman down!!! Oh, the humanity :P
Her: Haha. Sorry I've been MIA. The truth is I'm in a complicated relationship that's on the verge of ending. It made me smile when you asked for my number and I thank you for that. The timing is just not right. I don't want to string you along.
Me: I respect that. I don't like to get mixed up in other people's business. However, i do think that sometimes things are more than just coincidence I almost didn't make it out last night and i was happy to have met you. Hope things turn out the way you want them to!
Her: Thank you. I'm glad to have met you too
Me: Take care and best of luck!
So i'm kinda on the fence as to whether i should proceed or back off for a few weeks and then re-engage and feel out where she's at. I think i might have closed the door a bit with my last text and i don't have any info on the relationship other than it's "complicated" which seems like a red flag. She's definitely my type and it seems like a waste to just give up completely. Anyone ever been in a similar situation? Opinions? These texts were yesterday, btw.
