    Default Think I jacked this one up with HB9...

    Hey guys, first post here, definitely want to explore the site more and grab some info. but thought I would start out with a situation I think I may have botched. Maybe a bad segway or too deep here too soon. Caught up with a girl from high school after about six years. After seeing what she was up too I opened up a new thread, she is looking for a teaching job.

    Me: what ya been lookin at for a summer job while you look for a big girl one?... iron factory is hirin, 3rd shift
    Her: Haha oh boy I don't know if I could handle that! I think I'm going to be working at 'a restaurant' in 'another town' but I'm not sure yet
    Me: oh yeah, nothin like rackin yourself $80,000 in debt and than snaggin a job you didn't need a college degree for in the first place
    Her: Hahaha exactly
    Me:I had to work at a resort all winter, for minimum wage, which sucks ass, but when you have a job that deals with people, you always get a good story. I passed out hardcore at work one day and woke up to this lady who had been watching me sleep through a window for about 5 minutes. Just for no reason...

    Its been three days and no reply after she usually gets back quick. I def. way over thought it. Should I just step away?

    Wassup dude, welcome to the site. I see you're from Michigan. I was born and raised there so automatically you've earned some cool points. Let's jump into this now:

    If she hasn't replied yet she's most likely not going to. Always keep your text short, light, flirty, and fun. You started off well, but your last text was wayy too long, and you're letting too much be known about you at one time. These are basically general rules you want to follow. Check out T-mals texting guide and Gun's and Glory's texting guide. You'll find out all the basic there on how to text.

    What you should do though to progress from here is to just simply send her another text today with something fun and have a short conversation. You want to build some rapport and comfort with this conversation. Open with something like "Wakey wakey! Happy Sunday! What kind of trouble are you causing today?"

    Something fun to illicit an emotion because girls are nothing more than a posterboard of emotions.

    You guys use right hand to map out directions we use our left, I am not going to hold that against you guys but rather agree there are good things on here about texting. Keep it simple and engaging. Also use it sparingly, nothing worse than lighting up her inbox.
    Learn to be a better person not a better player.

    I think you started great but when you mentioned that the job was "minimum wage" and it "sucks ass" that you did dlv.

    You could have said that you "worked at an amazing resort and the best part was some crazy stuff you did."

    It would have piqued her curiosity.

    At this point you could have just waited for her to ask what that "crazy stuff" was.

    Then you could have given her a good story.

    Spot on, thanks for the insight. I totally didn't see it but I did DLV. My first line was a set up for failure, not to mention the story was undoubtedly too long itself. I'll have to watch for the DLV in later conversations. Thanks for the info.
