For all of you who don't know, I'm currently stuck out in the boonies working a summer job. As such, I can't practice my game like I would normally. For a long time I figured I was stuck just posting on the forum and doing my best to answer questions when it hit me...I've got all the girls I need just waiting in my contacts list. So for the past few days I've been studying text game, reading b4utxther and posts on the subject and trying them out.
Right now, I'm working on 2 girls through txt, an old friend of mine who I use as a backboard to practice new stuff on (reason being we've been friends since 6th grade, I like her in the friendzone cause she gets me. She's attractive, an 8 and a cheerleader, but she isn't an HB to me) and a girl I hung out with some before college started (we were going to the same school and were from the same city, so we started hanging out to make sure we had at least one friend when we got there) but we've since gone our separate ways with friend groups and so on. So I'm trying to pick things up with both of them, but I'm having an ass of a time getting them both to commit to the conversation. The old friend, we'll call her J, I haven't talked to for most of the summer till now, so it's taking her a while to warm back up to me. On top of that, she's always been a bad texter. The other girl, a redheaded HB 8 we'll call B, got fairly popular last year and now thinks she's pretty hot sh1t.
I've been doing everything right, being lighthearted, funny, teasing them, trying to make statements while still eliciting an answer from them, don't respond to their texts right away. But these girls are locked up tight.
Here's what I mean. I'll show you my convo with B
(This is when I was still trying to use Gunsnglory's text game, I found out that works better on girls you've #closed recently, not reinitiations)
Jul 10 6:25 PM
Me: Hey there B :P
Jul 10 7:10 PM
Me: Lol, I bet 5 bucks you don't know who this is.
Jul 10 7:15 PM
B: Ok pay me 5 bucks, Bandit
Me: Not bad ;-)Remind me when we hang out next and I'll pay up. But I might make you sit through some stories first. Maybe Oogum Boogum...nah, that might be a little too out there for you
(Here I allude to the fact that eventually we will hang out later, plus I give her a great hook to latch on to)
B: Haha okay
(Now I try to get her back in the comfort zone of autopilot like GnG said.)
Me. So what are you doing?
----No response from her----
(The next day, after spending the night reading half of B4UTXTHer, I decide to try the upbeat playful approach. So I come up with a way to start a Roleplay while slightly calling her out on her lack of commitment.)
Jul 11 10:02 AM
Me: Can't tell me what you're doing...I've seen this before. (B's full name), secret agent. I'm probably already too deep. So how are you going to play this, just have me killed or kidnap me and make me your recurring love interest...
(It's a little bold, but I think it was solid. Even hinted at a relationship, and guess what she said...)
Jul 11 3:45
Me: Well now I'm convinced. Some men in black suits are going to kill me :P Nice knowing you super spy.
Jul 11 4:33
B: Uh I really have no idea what you're talking about....
Me: Haha guess I can't blame you there. What can I say, I can be a dork sometimes. But tell me, if you aren't a secret agent then what trouble have you been getting into?
(Haven't heard from her since)
Now lets look at J. It's too long a conversation too print out word for word, but I'll give you the jist. It was around 11 last night, I told her that to spice up what was surely a monotonous day for her, I was going to read her mind. She texted me back at 1 AM protesting, that she wasn't bored but was working all day. I was still up but I figured it'd be good to tease her a little, so I acted like she'd woken me up and told her I'd read her mind in the morning. So I text her around 10 AM the next morning saying I'd read it now. Don't hear from her for 3 hours and it's a simple 3 word response. I set up the 1-4 trick, tell her to pick the first number to pop in her head. I wait till she replies, which takes another 2 and a half hours. By then I'm taking a nap, and she texts me to say she's got it. I pretend like I've forgotten, and tell her to give me 10-15 minutes to "work up the psychic mojo". I'd been waiting for her all day, I figured I could make her wait a few minutes...I woke up at 7. I don't tell her what I was doing, just that it lasted longer than I planned. I ask if she's got her number, 40 minutes later she says "yes". I tell her to contain her excitement, trying to tease her out of her 1 word answers, and then I guess 3. I get it right, and she freaks out a bit. I just act nonchalant and tell her it's a gift. She says Oh lord... and I tell her to stop thinking that and that I only use my powers for good...most of the time. Then I try to set up the cube with her, and I haven't heard back since.
I've got to find some way to get Re-Initiations up and running, they'll be my bread and butter till the end of the summer. But these girls are acting absolutely frigid. Does anyone know of some way I can get over this? Some way to get them actually texting back and in a timely manner? Hell, I'll take advice from anyone at this point, cause this is driving me up the wall.
