Re: So, opening worked...then maybe I screwed up
Guessing by the fact that you know she has read your message, I can safely assume that this is Facebook that you are using.
Here goes an important thing about Facebook: it is not a dating website. You can't treat it like a dating website, because the people on there are looking to connect with friends, not hit on random strangers. You're already in a bad position because she doesn't even know you and you're flirting with her. Do the two of you even have any mutual friends? That can be another bad thing if you don't.
However, it is possible to get strangers on Facebook. It only requires the right target and the right words to link together. If she does respond back, then just flirt and move along as a very entertaining and confident man. If she doesn't, then move on.
