I had been texting this girl over the weekend after the football game I met her at. She didnít go to my school and this was the first time I talked to her (at the game). I got her number from a friend and texted her the next day in the afternoon. Thoughts?, Advise? I havenít texted her since, but she is off to college this week not sure when she will be back? What is my next step/good opener for next convo? At the game she seemed to be standing by me most of the time when our group was talking and we had some conversations just me and her.
Me: Hey, guess who
Her: Umm who? Haha
Me: Haha my name is pretty similar to yours xD
(we have the same first name)
Her: Ohhhh!! (My name)?!
Me: Hahaha there you go
Her: Win! But, how'd you get my number? Haha
Me: Haha I have my ways. Im sure you could guess this one too.
Her:Hmm (guy friendsí name)? Haha
Me: Haha you win again xD. Would've asked but figured it would have been awkward with everyone around haha
(we were in my friendís car with 6 others one being her girl friend)
Her: Hahaha it's okay! (our mutual friendís name) is chill about those things I'm sure.
Me: Yeah defiantly (mutual friendís name) is a great friend! What're you up to?
Her:He is! When he's not giving me a hard time haha. And I'm hanging out at my house. How about you?
Me: Haha yeah which is kinda half and half xD. That's fun I'm surprised you're not getting ready for college. I'm hanging out at my house right now. But I'm gonna leave soon.
(we talked about college at the game.)
Her: Yeah it is haha. And Well I guess I should be haha. Since it's only an hour away I guess
that's why I'm not flipping out. And fun stuff!
Me: Ah haha yeah that makes sense. Are you gonna live on campus?
Her: Yeah haha and yes I am! I'm excited (:
Me:Haha yeah I figured you would be when do you start?
Her: My classes start the 26th, but there are a bunch of on campus activities all next weekend before (:
Me: Goshh! The 26th?! Luck!! Haha and you end earlier then I do. 😢 Not fair haha. But you're not participating in these activities? Haha
Her: Yeah! It's so much better than high school that's fo sho haha. And no I definitely will be! I move in Tuesday and I'll be there until classes start the next week ;)
Me: Yeah you're telling me! I can't wait until my senior year is over! Hopefully it's as fast as everyone says. That's pretty soon I bet you're EXCITED! Do you know who you're going to be rooming with?
Her: It goes by SUPER fast. So have a blast and make tons of memories! I am excited!! And nervous too hahaha. But, the girl I'm rooming with is a girl I graduated with, so I'm already friends with her :)
Me: Yeah that's what I've heard! Haha I'm working on making memories! Haha but you'll be fine! College is a different world, but in a good way! And since you already know your roommate that'll make it even better! 😊
Her: Haha you're on the right track! And thank you! :) it's just all so new and different! That's true though. Haha I don't have to worry about living with some mentally insane partier or anything!
Me: Haha well that's good! Started off the year well 😀! Yeah exactly but it's different in a good more fun way than high school. Hahahaha yeah I didn't imagine that you were to much of a crazy parties! xD
(figured she would get it, but wanted to be sure)
Her: That's awesome! And yeah it is! So much more freedom :) and no haha. There's a time to have fun, but that's not every weekend. Or day haha
Me: Yeah exactly I love having more freedom its just much more fun. But yeah that's what my sister did is get pretty drunk every weekend. Not the best idea.
Her: Exactly! And ohh very nice! Haha where did she go to school?
Me: She goes to (school) now she is gonna be a senior this year. But hey I'm about to see a movie but if you want to still talk around 7:00 or so. 😀
Her: Oh gotcha. Okay! Have fun! I'll probably be helping with my sister's birthday party tonight, but that sounds good!
Me: Haha alrighty well I'll talk to you then! 😁
Her: See ya! :)
(here we were texting back and forth for about 3 hours or so. time between texts would vary)
Me: Hey, sorry I didn't text you earlier. I had to take my parents to a party xD they're drinking and I'm the DDÖ lol
(This was about an hour after 7.. probably a little ridiculous that I apologized)
Her: Hahaha it's okay! That sounds so entertaining haha
Me: Hahaha oh lemme tell you I'm gonna have to go out at like 1-2 and pick them up too
Her: Sounds like some blackmail material is coming your way hahaha
Me: Hahaha yeah true might have to use that one of these days haha. How's the party?
Her: Haha let me know what happens when you do. And it's good! Just swimming, talking, listening to music.
Me: Will do hahaha may take a video of them xD. But that's good! Haha kinda wish it was your party now hahaha
Her: You totally should!!! Hahaha and that would be so awesome! I just had a birthday party in (place). THAT was amazing haha
Me: Hahaha might be hard since I'm driving but I may! Oh yeah forgot about that! I'm sure that was a serious frieken party! What did you do??!
Her: Hahaha just tape the camera on the dashboard! And ohhh man. It was my 18th birthday and it was the best I've ever had hahaha. It was crazy
Me: Hmm thats a good idea :D but that might make it to obvious! Yeah I'm sure it was crazy! Haha were you able to drink down there? Since you didn't actually go with our school?
(This was around 11:30 or so. Im assuming she fell asleep. I decided I would wait and text her the next day)
Me: (her name), save me!
Her: What's wrong?!
Me: This essay is HORRIBLE! :*(
Her: Oh THAT essay. The one I've heard sooo much about. The reason why no one can hang out up on (place). I'm so sorry :(
Me: Yes that essay I has 1200 words... we need around 3000 :( this is not fun. You're so lucky you're going to college hahaha
Her: When is it due?? I had to go through a horrible senior paper like that too last year! I thought it would NEVER end!
Me: Wellll the rough draft is supposed to be due MONDAY so thats why everyone is doing it today xD. It just feels like I'm typing, but I'm not getting anywhere near closer to where I need to be. So yeah it feels exactly like its NEVER going to end! haha What're you up to?
(This next text took her 3 hours to respond she was with a friend)
Her: Hahaha naturally! Procrastination is my worst enemy and the story of my life haha. You'll get through it though!! And I just hung out with (girl friend) downtown (:
Me: Hahaha you're telling me I'm still not at 3000 and probably won't even get there xD. But that's fun! Wish I didn't have so much crap to do. Hahaha I thought you forgot about me for a second there😨
Her: What happens if you don't get there? Haha and yes it was!! I hadn't seen her since she was in (place) 2 months ago! And oh I'm sorry!*
Me: Haha nothing really I don't think at least especially since very few people will actually get there. That's good though! I didn't know she went to (place) too. I'm sure you girls had lots to catch up on haha. But Na don't worry about it haha it's just something that irritates me when someone doesn't respond at all but you still did which I defiantly prefer 😊
(it was about 20 minutes laterÖ so I corrected my defiantly with definitely to remind her)
(Immediately after the correction):
Her: Well that's good! Just band together against the paper requirements haha. And yeah she did! She and (girl friendís older brother who is my age) both. I didn't know anyone from (place) except (guy) and (guy) when we first went and I ended up becoming really good friends with (girl, girl, guy, guy and girl. And ohh me too! I hate that!
(all the friends except the one she was with downtown are in my grade and her age)
Me: Thats the plan haha. But thats good, haha I love (guy friend) xD. But dang I didn't know that you only knew one person from up here before you went to (place) haha I had thought you knew (other guy) for a long time. Pretty brave to go just basically by yourself haha.
(here I responded quickly and didnít read the message all the way through)
Me: I think I kinda skipped over the (guy) AND (other guy) part xD
Her: Haha yeah, (guy friend)ís pretty great. And not really haha because I went last summer with the exchange group that had (guy), (guy), (guy) , and (guy) , so I already knew the amazing life and people in (place)! (:
Me: Gosh Lucky! I didn't know that you have gone twice! I wish I went this past summer with all you guys! I want to go to (same place)! Haha I bet you got to make some really great friends when you went both times :D
Her: Yeah exactly! :) that's how I know so many people. I'm in love with the life over there! And I've made some of the best friends I've ever had over there! You should definitely go!! It will truly change your life.
Me: Yeah I'm sure! I want to go over to Europe so badly! I have heard from tons and tons of people that its just amazing over there! I've heard that life over there is so different haha
Her: The life is definitely different, but in some of the best ways possible! I'm sure you'll be there one day :) anyone who ever wants to go always finds a way to. College always has those doors open!
Me: Yeah I'm sure, what are these best ways possible?! Haha I really hope so, I think I will eventually, but I'm just not sure how long it will be until I actually go! I want to go this year haha
Her: Haha where do I start... The accents, the more wholesome food, how everyone is so fashionable, everyone rides bikes, the trains, the parties, the guys shave their arm pits.. Haha just had to throw that in there. I could honestly write an essay haha
Me: Haha oh accents are FUN! Haha I have also heard that the food is AMAZING down there! It would be nice to not be so dependable on cars haha, I'm sure the parties are just INSANE though I have heard some pretty good/interesting stories stories from (guy friend) haha :D but really? Like the pits shaved haha xD but I'm sure that would be a good essay, probably better than the one I wrote! xD
Hehe I'm guessing Miss (her last name) fell asleep xD but if you didn't I am haha I has school :( but hey, its been nice talking to you :D text me sometime tomorrow or something! :D Good Night (her name)! :)
Her: I'm sorry! I am falling asleep haha. I'll talk to you later (: goodnight (my name)! Haha
Me: Hahaha don't worry about it, :) night
Itís been two days since I have texted her or vise versa..
Not sure what to help me out :/
