Hey guys, found the forum a few days ago, and read through most of the texting stickies. Some good info there.
Saturday night I had a couple beers and went on POF. I messaged a couple of girls. One responded back rather positively. Here's how it went
Me: What are these benefits you speak of? Also, you kind of remind me of Scarlett Johansson. That is all. (she mentioned she offered great benefits like a good job)
Her:I'm going to take that as a compliment because she is gorgeous but I can't stand her attitude...at least I think I'm a bit nicer lol
And unfortunely I can't disclose the entire benefits package but I can tell you that my cooking makes men fall in love and I give amazing massages
Me: You should take it as a compliment! But she does have an attitude, doesn't she?! LOL, Oh really?! What is your specialty? And massages? Now you are just teasing...
Her: She definitely does lol Hmm no particular specialty, depends on who I am cooking for...I am half Italian, so my nonna has been teaching me how to cook ever since I was little, apparently it's the best way to a man's heart? Lol, And I'm not teasing, maybe you will be fortunate enough to see that I don't lie.
Me: Okay, what are you doing on POF on a saturday night?? We should continue this conversation over a drink!
Her: Haha, I'm hanging out with some friends at my place watching the Wichita vs Ohio state game since my buddy plays for Wichita...a drink would have been fun though, another time?
Me: You have friends over, but you are on POF!? You must be bored! The game is almost over isn't it? How about afterwards?
Her: I'm on my cell lol, they have no clue. Ya the game is almost over but I'm hanging out with my friends for the rest of the night. Text me sometime and we can definitely get together for a drink, xxx-xxx-xxxx.
Me: Lol sneaky sneaky! Okay have a good night.. I'll text you for sure =) Oh, and btw my name is Rodney
Her: Nice to meet you Rodney, I'm Stephanie
Me: Nice to POF meet you too Stephanie. Talk soon.
So, I waited till Monday night, 8:30ish and I texted her. I simply texted her: Stephanie? (I saw this on here actually, I though it was a not bad opener).
She replied about an hour later, saying Lol yes...
I was a little thrown off at this point, I was expecting a quicker response for how things went on POF on saturday. (she was replying to me in 2-5 minutes every time, and she had friends over...) So I waited about 25mins and replied back "Hey! It's Rodney, how are you??" I know I know, its not the best thing to write, but I was kind of tired and I was into a movie so she didn't have my full attention (nor should she with making me wait an hour). No reply to this text.
So I waited two more days, and I texted her "Hey! Rachael Ray... what's cooking today?" Lol, not bad right? Well still no reply. So that's two strikes.
I'm more confused then anything, I know the one text was lame, but seriously, no reply that quickly? I could see if it was a lame conversation, but she didn't even give it a chance! And she offered her number, I didn't even ask for it! Thoughts?
