    Default Off on a bad foot. Need a killer first text.

    Not to worry. I won't plagiarize.

    Last Friday, I met a girl at a bar that I hadn't seen since high school. The interaction was great at first, she was all smiles and hugs - But then I got awkward; my mind was still a little blown that I saw someone that I literally hadn't seen in years, and I was having Hot Woman Syndrome.

    Basically, I got her number framing it as a possible job connection. There are many problems with the way the interaction after getting the number went, though:
    - I confessed to her being my high school crush (though nothing about now other than a reciprocated "you look great");
    - I awkwardly made it clear I was interested in dancing, but she apparently had already finished doing that;
    - I didn't say much to her friend on account of not knowing what to say;
    - She knew I came there alone, but I didn't give her the all-important context of why;
    - And she was the one who walked off, saying nice seeing you again - clearly she wasn't impressed with where the interaction went.

    So from her perspective, she might have made a huge mistake in giving out her number in the form of a guy who used to be funny and interesting and is now a supplicating, awkward, if well-dressed and somewhat good-looking creeper.

    This puts me in a bad position. I do actually need that job connection, and I would like at least the opportunity to see if this girl is someone I want to pursue. What would you recommend?

    well first off i think youre going to have to choose one or the other. either use her as a job connection or pursue her sexually. Assuming youre going to go after her for a date, i think you clearly need to redeem yourself. She wasnt impressed with the first encounter. if she comes out with you it needs to be a great time for her. my objective when having an encounter usually is to either keep a smile on her face or keep her talking and of course avoid the interview scenario of question answer question answer. I would go to dinner with her and possibly a friend of hers. go to a popular place, it doesnt need to be expensive but make sure its one of those restaurants everybody likes. youll probably have to make her laugh a few times before she will agree to go to dinner with you.

    maybe that helped?

    She works in a restaurant, so I'll try to avoid that for now. I was thinking of opening with a playful neg and asking her if I'd have to operate on account of her liver and lungs coming out of the weekend - she smokes and drinks a fair amount and we've joked about it before. As far as what I'd invite her to... I don't know just yet, some of my friends might be doing stuff this weekend.

    don't underestimate that first impressions are last impressions, if you try and be better over txt than in person she'll see through it

    as for the path I'd take the job connection cause there's alot of women out there, there's alot of jobs too but the job is far closer than her

    I took my first instinct and the opener went fine. But you're right, I guess I'm putting in an application. Normally something like this wouldn't be a big deal, but this girl was the Freshman Year of High School Crush.
