    Default Thoughts on recovery

    We've talked before and this was a ping text cause it's sort of faded a little with her. We talked about Braveheart being one of our favorite movies and this was her response to my opener.

    Me:
    I just don't understand why William Wallace didn't just say F*ck It!, steal the princess and move to America!

    Her:
    What

    She just didn't get it, you don't have to recover. In fact tease her about it, send back something like. "It's Braveheart! You have a shorter memory than my goldfish."

    Or if you would think she doesn't know that goldfish have 5 seconds of memory, "It's Braveheart! And before you get ahead of yourself, don't forget to breath "

    or "It's Braveheart you dork! Next time i steal your breath away, I might just think you forgot to breath " haha idk, something

    We all give good advise but we all over think our own situations too.

    I find if I write it down step a way re read it like a post from here and try to write a response the answer comes out naturally. If not I come here and feel like oh crap why didn't I think of that?

    Her:
    What
    you needed to "root" the question, by that Is that you need to be on the general topic of braveheart in your convo before you mention such a specific question about it.

    I would have use a root text and my convo would go like this:
    me- remember in the movie braveheart when he.......ect
    her- yeah.... ect
    me- well " I just don't understand why William Wallace didn't just say F*ck It!, steal the princess and move to America!" lol

    by using a root it leads her into the question and better helps her to recall the movie and thus get the joke

    Follow-up question:
    I think she is between a "medium fuse" and "short fuse" if you know the terms.

    I pinged her about a week ago and she did respond and was at first standoffish though I think it's changed a little. I'm not sure how often I should contact her because she does date alot and want to strike if the iron is ready. Here is our contact in the last few days which it has changed a little. I know it's a lot but please give me your thoughts on how to proceed as to when and also if I'm over using humor? I tend to over text but don't want to lose any momentum.

    Me(Friday): Oh man....it's Braveheart silly girl!
    Her(40 min): It's been a while since I've watched it
    Me(60 min): Well you better get to net fluxing that shit then!
    F*ck
    Netflixing damn autocorrect
    Her: Hahaha
    Me(60 min): Laugh it up over there!! Swear Siri wants me to look like a tool!
    Her: She's good at it too
    Me(20 min): Well I see someones feisty today...you're lucky you're my 2nd favorite __
    Her(40 min): I am indeed

    Me(next day): I see you peeking at my profile...stop looking at me swan!! :P
    Her: You looked at mine!
    Me(10 min): Oh please!! you checked my butt out last week!
    Her: Once. Yes
    Don't flatter yourself
    Me: haven't been on in a while and to my surprise some kinda cute girl from __ was looking
    Her: U were on my daily matches
    Me: what did you think of that one?!
    Her: Just kinda laughed
    Me: i can't help it that I'm everyones match on here!!
    Jen: Wow!
    Me: that's what she said!
    lol
    Her: Lol
    Me: I saw a sign that reminded me of you
    Her: What
    Me: *Random Funny Pic*
    Her: Lol!
    Me: Truer words have never been spoken!
    (5 min) What's new in the wonderful world of ___
    Her(2.5 hours): A really great nap...That's about it nothing new. What about you

    Convo is pretty one sided. And try not to throw so many teases back to back. When she's writing a lot of "lol" responses then you've just become the dancing monkey. She is just enjoying you put on a show. Bad way to go.

    Pique her interest. I have a thread on some pretty interesting questions to get her talking. Throw about 2 or 3 spread out and you'll be fine.

    Yeah I've been in the trap of too many teases and giving too much to where it kills the attraction.

    Yesterday she actually started to respond right away, winked after "Don't flatter yourself" and "Lol!" after the dirty picture which is more along the lines of what she was doing when we were dating and it did feel a little bit of progress was being made. Also dropping off all of a sudden to take a nap is pretty much her MO. Though before she was much more engaged.

    How many days would you let go by before you maybe pinged with one of your questions? And also how frequently would you being trying to ping her? I know she isn't a lost cause and know that I need to just slowly get the embers to a fire again.
