Last stand (familiar to anyone who plays COD) is a term I coined for when you're texting a girl, and she's just being unresponsive or disappearing for random reasons.
I'm out to qualify girls, not for them to qualify me. Therefore, once I get a number, and I hit up a girl 2-3 times, and I'm not seeing the results I want to see. The girl goes into last stand. It's basically a final attempt to hold a conversation with girl before they get "x'd" off the list. Some guys move on. I do last stand. Now it may come off as needy, or desperate, but the reason why I don't care is because it will literally be the last time I ever talk to that girl again so any kind of neediness gets diffused.
Here's an example:
I number closed an HB 8 a little over a week ago. I texted her, she responded, I texted her again, then I got no response.
I waited 2 days, then I texted her again. She responded, I responded, she responded, I responded, then no response.
Next time I waited 4 days. Here's the convo
Me (1:45 pm): Hey there
Her (2:03 pm): Hey there boy im working
Me (2:14 pm): That's cool little missy. I see you're slacking on the job texting, and doing God knows what else lol
Her: No response
Now she may not have responded due to a number of reason (still working, busy, etc), but it doesn't matter because based on our previous interactions. This girl has a history of not responding. Thus she got thrust into last stand. The goal is to set a time when you're going to talk, and follow through with it
Me (6:56 pm): Man holding a convo with you is almost impossible sheesh lol. Imma call you once at 9:04 pm sharp. Make yourself available.
Her: *no response* although I'm not looking for a response here
I throw in the "once" to kinda subconsciously signify that I'm never going to try to reach them again.
9:04 rolls around, I call and get no pick up. So I leave a cliff hanger voice mail. "Hey there Rebbecca with 2 b's (inside joke). This is Lonnie. I really need your opinion on something, so give me a call back as soon as you get this. Talk to you soon."
After that, last stand is complete and you X her off the list. I would say it works like 30% of the time.
The way the story ends though is she texted me later that night.
Her (10:10 pm) Hey I missed ur call cause I had to take an extra shift for a friend sowwi ;(
BAAM!! that's the kinda response you're looking for. She wanted me to call her, but guess what? I'm a busy man, and I don't have time for flakiness. This is where the roles reverse. I ignored her text, and this is where I'm at right now. 15 hours later, I still haven't responded. *pride restored*
Keep in mind if she does send a text like the one I just said, she goes back into last stand. Whenever you feel like, you give her one more chance to hold down a convo. I recommend it being a phone call.
When I do respond (probably tomorrow) I'll send something like this
Me: No problem .. such is life. I've been busy so I'm just getting to you now. I'll call you tonight at *insert time* then kitty face (pet name)
If she picks up, great! If not she get's "X'd" off the list.
That my friends is last stand.
