So, I met a really cool girl at salsa last week and have been trying to hook up with her.
After the course, we all stayed for some drinks at a nearby pub and got to know each other a bit. She told me she really loves traveling with a backpack to exotic destinations. Her last trip was to Mexico with her sister, so I don't think she has a bf or anything. I used this topic as an opportunity to tell her how I am fascinated by Japan and am planning to go there next year. She seemed very interested and was listening with a bit of "admiration". Then, some other people joined the discussion and she disappeared out of the blues without saying bye to anyone.
I found her on the salsa class' facebook group and told her it was nice chatting with her and that we should go to more salsa classes together. Also told her that she left before we could exchange contact details (I gave her my phone number using this pretext).
She replied within 3-4 hours with the following text:
"Hey there. yes, it was indeed nice meeting you yesterday and talking to you. I like people who have a passion like you for Japan.
Yeah, I left quite quickly. Sorry. I suddenly felt super tired. Not sure I wanna go to the other party tonight…
Sure, let me know about the salsa
Enjoy the rest of your weekend."
No phone number of course...
Anyway, I texted her again yesterday to tell her that this will be my last weekend before I leave for holidays and that I wanted to visit some cool Japanese pagodas in the city outskirts. Of course, I invited her to join me.
Again, it didn't take her too long to reply. She replied:
"Hi. it's a great idea but I will be in "x city" this weekend. Sorry
Will you leave "city we live in"? For how long?
Take care and see you soon."
So, do you guys think I am on to something or is it a waste of time?
Also, I leave on holidays for 3 weeks, so she might forget about me after so long. Shouldn't I leave a lasting impression on her? I know she lives in the same neighborhood. Should I invite her for after-work drinks in my reply to her last message or will it seem too desperate?
Thanks a lot in advance for your advice, mates.
