Been texting with a girl I met off POF, we met once and that ended with a great k-close. Now, I've been trying to set up a second date and feel like I may be getting brushed off. She says that she wants to see me again, but then makes excuses (possibly legit?) anytime it comes up.
Here is the latest exchange... she opened me at 7:49am ... I didn't respond until 10:42am and had some rapid fire fun and flirty texts, then as soon as I transition to talking about getting together....
Me (11:42am): What's the rest of your week looking like?
HB (12:35pm): Busy actually... vet appointments for my pups, my sister arrives Sunday and I a girls night and sports this weekend! I always end up slammed before company arrives!
may have screwed up here trying to force the issue?
Me (1:21pm): I have a window tonight around 8:08 and a craving for some wine, chocolate and gummy worms... you should join.
HB (3:01pm): I wish I could, sounds fantastic but I'm meeting my gf for dinner tonight. Rain check?
Me (4:53pm): Rain check huh? I'll make a deal with ya, you can either pick the day or what we do... I'll warn you, I have a nasty schedule the next few days.
HB (10:06pm): Makes two of us on the schedule front! Hate to say it but I might not be free until after my parents leave on the 18th and I'm headed to the beach with my girls on the 19th... :/
Now, I have not responded since. Figured I'd freeze her out a bit and was also worried anything I could come up with would come off bad.
So, should I continue to freeze her out and see if she re-opens? or do I send her something totally random / unrelated to try to get back to flirty exchanges (and at what point do I even try to set up a date)? or am I already dead in the water?
