Default Response for online dating msg

ME:
So we're robbing a bank and we need a getaway to triumph our new found fortune! Where are we going?

Her:

Galapagos islands


I thought this could be a playful opener. It triggered a response but a very blunt one. How would you guys respond?

This is a fun opener and the fact that you got a response is alot better than you think. It means shes open for conversation but waiting for you to steer it. My suggestion would be to tease her about her answer, maybe theres a known dangerous animal or insect at the Galapagos and say thats the worst place to go. Random thought. Or continue with this adventure thread explaining more detail, however I would try to make it an emotional journey. Things like she betrayed you during your escape and has to earn back your trust. Mind you, you will have to calibrate depending on how she responds and try not to drag it on too long. Once you reach the hook then change topics to something more personal. Hope this helps, good luck.

Lol not at all pwonager. I'm assuming that this is online and therefore he really has no value to her compared to the other guys that message her. Even with his clever opener he may not be the first guy to come up with something clever. So a call to action for her to meet is very risky. However not impossible.

I myself have been getting better with online game and have been using an opener that seems to be getting farely decent results. Once I spend alittle more time with it and have more conclusive results I will share it with the community.

Thanks, and yeah my advice is assuming he's online.

I never thought of making a little story before asking for a meeting. Good tip, and might be worth trying.

That's great. I love komodo dragons btw. Ok your goal is to make her comfortable. This is online dating, so she's not even sure you are really the guy on your pro. So keep with this thread until you find something personal about her you can talk about. Being interested is interesting to people. If you can't find a smooth transition from this then go ahead and do a rough transition. Its not the worst thing to do. And when you do ask her about something personal make sure it's open ended. If she can answer with a yes or no then you better bet that's how she'll answer until she is interested in you as a man. Looking good man, keep it up.

I actually liked pwonagers response. It's non threatening but bold, the fantasy getaway can still be continued and will force her to make a firmer decision on whether she actually wants to meet up. There are so many time wasters online so I like to cut to the chase after only a few messages and so do most women. Its not risky to ask a girl out online fairly rapidly at all - thats what they all ultimately want - you just have to be clever about it and it can be worked into the Galapagos islands thread very easily. Most of the decision is made on your profile and photos. You need to prove yourself through the banter. So far you've neg'd her on the Komodo dragons (which of course aren't actually found on Galapagos islands anyway - and additionally a bank robbing man of bravado will protect her from dangerous animals) so no need to keep negging. She has already added value to herself and even gets her natural history correct saying she will 'dance with the turtles and blue footed booby's' (which ARE found on the Galapagos islands - although she perhaps meant giant tortoise).

So you could start role playing yourself as the hero/provider: 'a Galapagos GoGo girl, cool, I'll catch some fire flies, make funky lanterns and create our own blue iguana disco. What music you gonna dance to with the pacific sunset behind us?', 'Do you like surf or turf? I can dive for lobsters and if you're lucky I might bring you back up a rare pearl. Your in charge of furnishing our mansion though, what's the theme/style going to be? And don't forget mosquito nets over the bed'. idk I'm just thinking up random sh!t but if you are going to role play - make yourself the hero and start get her imagining you two together (partners in crime remember) or how you successfully handle situations as a man (or couple) rather than it being a competition against each other. If she's cheeky, neg her, if she provides a hook 'dancing with turtles' expand upon it with your own value and hooks. If she goes along with that fantasy and role plays herself into your trap of being together she will say yes to meeting in person, unless she's an online dating time waster, in which case you have already weeded her out.

Thanks Whitedragon for the suggestion. I liked your creativity so much that I had to use it. Here's how it went.

Me:
A Galapagos GoGo girl, cool, I'll catch some fire flies, make funky lanterns and create our own blue iguana disco. What music you gonna dance to with the pacific sunset behind us?
Her:

lol none, I don't really dance.

Here's the Sh1t Test. Should I deflect it and change the thread or ridicule it and change the thread?
