    Default Text critique how to recover from this as no reply?

    Hi all,

    Last week I was on the train on my way to London. While on the train I started talking to this HB, and as we were getting off we walked for a bit talking to the underground/subway, and then I got her number. We got on pretty well during the interaction and she was laughing sometimes too. I then text her the next day as follows:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Me 12.39: Hi, nice meeting u on the train yesterday. How did u spell ur name again lol? So are u an academic or a novelist

    (With regards to the first text, she had said during the conversation that she had been writing as part of her job, so I asked her if she was writing a novel to which she replied she wished she was as a joke. She then said she was actually an academic as part of her job who wrote academic journals. Hence my opening text.)

    HB 13.24: Hi same here. Hope you found your house. A novelist and an academic are not mutually exclusive, Lol.

    (I was in London to view some flats as Ill be moving there soon, which explains her response about the house)

    Me 14.42: Yeah I found a couple of decent places, not sure which one yet. Id say both together are very rare lol, but I think deep down u like being an academic

    HB 15.13: Excellent. I would say you are a psychologist and people reader. Lol (By the way, Im not a psychologist or anything like that, so she was joking in that text)

    Me 17.19: Am I right then ? Hmmm so what else do u think I am lol

    HB 18.45: No idea.you are the psychologist not me. Hahah.

    Me 19.37: Lol ur the one that said I am. So if I were to say ur not a spontaneous and adventurous person, would I be wrong

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    While the texting initially went well, it faded at the end and there was no reply to my final text. In hindsight, I dont know why I sent that final text, think I was trying to escalate and try something different as Ive had problems in the past converting numbers to dates.

    Where did I go wrong? Perhaps I took too long to reply to her initial texts as she was replying fairly quickly.

    Also, how do I rescue this from here? What would you send to her to start the conversation again? This text exchange happened 2 days ago so its been a long enough gap to text her again for one last go.

    By the way, a HB who is both attractive and intelligent is just my type lol . As she is an academic (or claims to be lol), Im thinking I should play this slightly differently than normal.

    Not sure to be honest, you could try again but maybe don't escalate it so much yet?
    If not then i'd leave it tbh, plenty of fish in the sea!

    Your basically continuing what you spoke on the train and your texts are a little competitive IMO. No need to neg hit every girl or escalate so fast. Chivalry and charm trump that. Ask her out or ask if she is free to talk sometime properly on the phone if she's wary about meeting you. Keep it informal and relaxed. I don't think you said anything totally wrong or unsalvageable and I wouldn't guess what she's thinking from a no reply. Ask her out. It's that simple. Who cares if it's been 3 days, she is busy and so are you. She will likely give you the same answer whether you asked her out on the spot as you got off the train, after your texting or in 4 weeks from now. Your initial meeting hopefully made the 1st impression not your last text. If you dont want to ask her out yet text her something charming with an interest on her, late at night maybe when she's likely alone and will be surprised, like ''how is your journal going?' or 'hope your journal is coming along. I'm off to bed, sweet dreams'. Good luck
