    Default Bad or Dead End Text

    Okay, quick one here. Still trying to tone down my humor via texting but not sure about this one. Here's how it went. Met this 25yr old HB8.5 cold approach during the day. This is the very start of the text chain.

    Me: Hey Croatia...seeing as you're from an old country, do I have to write to your parents and get your Dad's permission before I txt you? Le me know : ) - Name

    Her: You do not need permission. How was your day?

    Me:Fantastic day. I'm looking forward to hanging with the crew tonight. What r u up too?

    Her: Having a few drinks with some friends at home.

    Me Sounds like a night of comfy clothes, fancy cocktails and snacks that look too pretty to eat.

    So is my last text bad? Keep in mind the last few texts were at 8;30pm friday. My strategy is to wait it out and start a new thread tomorrow. I am jumping the gun with this post but figured I'd better put it up now in hopes of getting a response before Sat. night.

    The problem with your last text is that it did not provide conversational hooks in it for a girl to invest further with you..check one of the hottest threads about 'Texting do's and the don't-conversational bible..Goodluck

    And you're right, you need to tone down the humor until you build a little bit of rapport.

    Basically, this was your conversation:

    You: Hey, what's up!
    Her: Nothing much. You?
    You: Nothing much.

    So as everyone else said, you never provided anything else to go on. You weren't really bantering and you weren't into anything more than a superficial level of rapport.

    Since the conversation ended in a natural place, you can text her again with no problem. Just make sure you wait a bit (like a day), then re-engage with something better.

    Duke you're right. But what does one say in a situation like this;

    Her: Having a few drinks with some friends at home.

    Me Sounds like a night of comfy clothes, fancy cocktails and snacks that look too pretty to eat.

    I was going for light teasing as a way of being different. Duke what would your reply to that text have been?

    The Ultimate Texting Guide for Men By Tyler Tray
    Texting is an advantage, if you understand how. I used to do this same exact thing, and wonder if and when she was going to text back. Learn to challenge her through text, after what some of the boys already mentioned, a little bit of rapport.

    OK I just done reading another thread and some guy got bashed for referring a book. I did not know that was disrespectful, but I see it now. My genuine, personal advice would be too just challenge her early on, instead of teasing/joking about situational things. This makes it impersonal if you joke about "food that looks to fancy". If you joke and challenge her with an open ended text, she is dying to know what you mean because you never give her a straight answer about what you mean unless you make her work.

    Did you actually text her again to try to recover?

    Yes I did. Here is the update so far. The tread below is a continuation of my original post the following day;

    Silence from my last text, so I waited 24 hrs.

    Me: You wont believe what happened to me today.
    Her:?(immediate response)
    Me: Took my puppy to the dog beach. Ended up breaking up a bad girl fight! One girl passed out. (2 mins later)
    Her: Whoa!!! Where was this? (3 mins later)
    Me: Kits. That wasn't even the highlight of the story. Hmmm u strike me as an animal lover...(3 mins later)
    Her: I am ( 2 mins later)
    Me: +1 point (immediate response)
    Me: So u own something cool like a sloth, flying monkey, ostrich (10mins later)
    Her: Gecko(5 mins later)
    Me: GECKO? Unbelievable, my horoscope was right. (1hr 45mins later)

    Dead end, however my last text came in at 8:30pm on a sat night. So it's now Sunday and I'm confused, can't get a read on her. She feels like a medium fuse. My theory is that she is either not interested or wants me to call her. I'm reading the books, not sure how to challenge her without asking a bunch of questions. I'm getting so little to work with.

    She looks to be about 25, about an 8.5, well spoken. She is smart and also difficult to make laugh or smile in person. Her body language at the time was positive and I got past qualification but no time for comfort.

    What do I do guys, please only expert opinions.
