Context: Chatted with an HB10 cocktail waitress in an L.A. hotel lounge over two nights that I was in town on business from San Francisco. She started talking to me about her dad and brother, where she's from, interested in what I do for a living, what she's doing with her life, etc. I felt like she was invested and attracted, and it felt like a first date. Her boss actually called her out on trying to pick up a guy while on the job, in the middle of our conversation. It was a good time to end the conversation and ask for her number, which she gave me.
I texted her the next afternoon and it continued over a few hours. Word for word:
Me: Hey [HB10], it's [me]. It was really nice meeting you this weekend. I hope you didn't get in trouble for chatting with me! Take care, [me].
Her: Hey [me]! Nice to meet you!! Oky saving your number now and we def should grab coffee and talk more about your industry
. I know my brother and you would get along great! Enjoy the rest of your evening!
Me: Back in SF now, just unwinding from the busy weekend. And I'd love to go out for coffee next time I'm in town. Hopefully soon! Working tonight?
Her: No just hitting the gym with my bf! You know, pumping iron
Me: Pumping iron, getting ripped? lol. Didn't take you for the weightlifting type! I would have guessed yoga + running.
That was the first time she ever mentioned a boyfriend. Haven't gotten a response yet. But in general, is this a Sh1t Test? Do I completely ignore the fact that she mentioned a boyfriend or do I commit to the Boyfriend Destroyer Technnique? How do I proceed? Any feedback is appreciated.
