Hey, new here. Have an interesting little chat thing here from a chick I met on facebook. We have a few mutual friends but I've never met her before. Kind of rediculous in the beginning, but she responds and qualifies herself. Maybe I should have asked for the number earlier. I'm thinking of leaving it alone at this point - I've done most of what I can. I can't tell if she's attracted to me or she's just afraid of the unknown (hanging out with some "random dude"). I know I've been persistant (she responds to me), but will not make time to hang out with me. I'm pretty much over it but for the sake of getting a lesson and feedback, I put it up here for your criticisms. Thanks.
<WARNING: This is a bit long. The convo spans out for a month.>
I sent her a message and it went like this:
tuna_casserole : hey, I think you're kinda fine. We need to hang out. come eat ice cream with me while I punch dolphins. this is not a joke.
no response. So the next day...
tuna_casserole 2:26pm : That was a bit forward, I know. But is it wrong...to want to eat ice cream...and punch dolphins in the nose?
I don't really know you, yet I am still checking to see the reach of your wit or humor by being absurd as possible in my advances towards you.
If this amuses you than cool, but if not I can't feel bad cause I've done dumber sh1t.
Her 2:29pm: It made me laugh, but definitely didn't make me want to hang out with you.. Hah
tuna_casserole 2:34pm: Oh that's cool. There's still time for that.
So tell me the most awesome thing you've done in the past week?
Her 2:37pm : I can't think of anything... Which is horrible because everyone should do something incredibly awesome at least once a week.
By the way, I think punching a dolphin sounds really mean and you should never do that.
tuna_casserole 2:41pm: Dolphins are like the smartest creatures on earth aside from primates. They're gonna catch up. Do you really want to see what a few more thousand years of evolution will do to them? This is a survival thing.
Do you want to see walking dolphins? Talking dolphins?
Her 2:41pm: I would love to.
tuna_casserole 2:41pm: I'm doing this for the human race.
Her 2:41pm: I could care less about humans. Animals are way better in my eyes
tuna_casserole 2:42pm: Oh no, you're one of those peta animal molesters, aren't you?
you sick fark.
Her 2:43pm: Without the molesting part
tuna_casserole 2:43pm: yea I wouldn't admit that I molest animals on fb chat either.
You know, human beings brought you microwave dinners.
I haven't seen an animal do a feat that impressive since, never.
Her 2:46pm: ...I hate microwaves.
tuna_casserole 2:46pm: Oh jeez. I'm sure you think they give you cancer right?
Her 2:47pm: Nope
But they destroy nutritional value in most foods
tuna_casserole 2:47pm: f**k beneficial enzymes.
I'd rather have my proteins scrambled beyond recognition.
So tell me something interesting about yourself so i can feel better about talking to you.
Her 2:49pm: I'm not sure if I feel that good talking to YOU! haha
tuna_casserole 2:50pm: oh no, you actually love talking to me.
you're prodominatly frustrated but simultaneously intrigued and you're probably thinking about me naked right now.
Her 2:52pm: I don't even know you or what you look like...
tuna_casserole 2:53pm: But yea, tell me something interesting that kind of defines who you are or something you like to do.
I'm kind of interested.
Her 2:56pm: I'm an artist but I work way too much and have been too tired to find motivation.
tuna_casserole 2:56pm: whats your medium?
tuna_casserole 3:03pm: ...?
Ok, I'm gonna jump in here and fill in the blanks myself. you paint pictures of fruit.
I gotta go soon, but I would like to show you something I painted that I'm sort of proud of, only because you say you're an "artist" (of what, I don't actually know).
I feel "artists" should inspire and motivate eachother.
Her 3:18pm: I paint with acrylics however I've done some pretty good ceramic pieces too
tuna_casserole 4:13pm: I'm back. for a bit
that's pretty cool *girls name*. I like people who create things. Do you have any pictures of your stuff uploaded online?
(she took a little bit to respond, so I said this) nah, you probably don't know how to use a camera.
Her 4:19pm: ?? I have an art album
THE NEXT DAY.
tuna_casserole 1:25pm: I'm totally kidding. My sense of humor confuses people.
THE NEXT DAY.
tuna_casserole 5:33pm: So Ive got an awesome idea- lets trade links to our art. I have that piece I was telling you about already uploaded.
tuna_casserole 6:29pm: If I send you my stuff, you have to
a.) promise not to laugh, and
b.) send me yours so I dont feel naked and alone.
Her 6:34pm: I told you I have an art album on fb
tuna_casserole 6:37pm: Oh cool. my album is filled with silly pictures of me and my friends.
Her 6:38pm: Pictures or drawings?
tuna_casserole 6:39pm: No, pictures. you can check it out if you want, then you can finally put a face to this asshole.
Heres a link to that painting i did.
Her 6:41pm: I didn't get any links
tuna_casserole 6:47pm: *link to some sh1t*
Her 6:53pm: Sound cloud?
tuna_casserole 6:59pm: Yea, I did some artwork for some tunes of a band i was in.
Her 7:01pm: Aha
tuna_casserole 7:04pm: You see it now?
tuna_casserole 7:11pm: (I like the way you blend your colors, like on the X piece. More so, I the overall concepts of a couple pieces were interesting to me, particularly the Z one and sort of the Y one (of which the shades of purple thing was cool). I think your A one was pretty prime too.
tuna_casserole 7:38pm: The wierdness of that X piece kind of reminds me of the stuff I used to do back in the day. I have a whole folder of it but Im kind of sketched out about putting it online cause its so wierd. Maybe I should show you sometime so you can tell me if they're too wierd or not.
TWO DAYS LATER.
tuna_casserole 4:36pm: So Im curious, did you grow up around here?
tuna_casserole 6:53pm: Nvrmd. I probably shouldn't have given you all that feedback about the art. If I were you I probably wouldn't talk to some stranger on the internet either. Maybe I'll just see you around some time.
Her 7:59pm: I really just don't like talking to people in general, especially those I don't know.. nothing personal
tuna_casserole 8:21pm: Oh so you're kind of introverted then. I have a few friends like that, and sometimes have that side of me. I bet it takes you a while to warm up to someone, but sometimes if you meet someone you're into it kind of clicks.
Her 8:45pm: word
THE NEXT DAY.
tuna_casserole 3:17pm: So I saw the most beautiful cherry blossom tree today.
tuna_casserole 3:42pm: It had bunches of bright pink flowers that would shake from the gentle breeze as the tiny petals would flutter to the ground.
Her 3:43pm: How cute. Haha
tuna_casserole 3:48pm: Yea it was awesome.
You seen any beautiful sights lately?
tuna_casserole 3:57pm: Oh hey, do you party at all? My buddy's having a keggar tonight.
Her 3:58pm: I work early and all day on weekends, so I don't party much. I do drink on my days off though Haha
tuna_casserole 4:02pm: Oh cool. when are your days off? We should hang out and grab a drink.
3 DAYS LATER.
tuna_casserole 1:36pm: Ok, so if you could be any animal in the world, for a day, which one would you be and why?
Her 4:01pm: Penguin because I love penguins haha
tuna_casserole 11:00pm: Penguins are cool, but why would you be a penguin specifically? Like if you had a whole day in the arctic while it was sunny, what would you do as a penguin?
2 DAYS LATER
tuna_casserole 6:20pm: Anyway, this may sound crazy, but there are a couple st. Patty's day parties Im gonna go to and as wierd as this sounds I think I kind want you to come around so we can get past this "i met you on the internet" silly thing. You can bring your friends too. Its gonna be an awesome time for sure cause Im quarter Irish. Lol.
5 DAYS LATER
Her 7:25pm: Somehow I just read that. Haha
tuna_casserole 7:28pm: Oh man, last night was farking awesome. Shame you werent around to bask.
Her 7:28pm: I went to a party and had fun sober
tuna_casserole 7:29pm: Thats still cool.
tuna_casserole 7:40pm: We should hang out anyway sometime.
Is that still wierd for you? lol
tuna_casserole 8:04pm: Nvrmd. Forget about it.
Her 8:05pm: Sorry I'm busy
tuna_casserole 8:08pm: S'all good. We should hang out when you're free sometime.
2 DAYS LATER
tuna_casserole 2:01pm: You should give me your number.
THE NEXT DAY.
tuna_casserole 2:12pm: Well hey, do you wanna get some margaritas with me sometime?
Here is where I basically gave up, and then remembered how my friend talked about her once. I thought I'd bring that up as some last ditch effort to get this chick off facebook and into my bed.
ONE WEEK LATER.
tuna_casserole 1:20pm: So I was hanging out of town with X and Z the other night. I remember X mentioning you once a while ago. Did you used to live by x?
Her 1:20pm: No, but I used to hang out with all those guys in high school
tuna_casserole 1:22pm: Yeah, I hung out with all those guys in high school.
My homies...awesome times.
Her 1:22pm: They're cool dudes
tuna_casserole 1:22pm: Hell yea.
I'm suprised we haven't met before, unless we have and I don't remember.
Her 2:34pm: I don't remember but we probably have
tuna_casserole 2:54pm: Word. We should just hang out sometime. We both probably know eachother already and we have the same friends.
I think I lost some steam after I complimented her art and in trying to build some comfort/rapport maybe asked her too many questions. If I would have stopped being as rediculous in the beginning, maybe focused on some comfort and then gone for the number a little earlier it might have worked out. Maybe I was right to ping her at random, but should have layed off with the questions. Who knows.
