I'm going to break this down as quickly as possible from beginning to end.
I go to subway every so often, and this attractive woman who works there caught my eyes. Every time I go, she see gives me anime eyes, and we make small talk. Today was no different. The interest was definitely there. This is strictly for learning purposes as I have no feelings for this woman, and have quite a few women who I'm talking to right now. I can handle the BF line just fine in person, but not so well through text. I'm well aware of BF destroyer, but I'm more or less just looking for a solid line to respond with.
She makes my sandwich (yesss!), she gives me anime eyes, she asks me questions. I tell her she's cute and that we're going to hangout. She asks when, and I ask her what her schedules like this week. She said she works Mon-Fri and has the weekend off. She then said that she works this Sat, but gets off at 3. I tell her Saturday MIGHT work, but for her to give me her number, and we'll make concrete plans through text.
She asks for my number instead. I say NO (with a smile). I release Tension by telling her if she thought I was a creep to just ignore my text, but if she thought I was farking charming and handsome to text me back, and we'll take it from there. She gives me her number. I give her a nickname *J----- the sexy * (we both couldn't think of an ending so I left it like that), we go about our days. This was around 3pm.
I text her around 9pm
Here's the interaction:
Me: Hey, it's Lonnie. Save this number, it's the most important one you'll ever get
Her: Hey. Quick question how old are you?
Me: Choose wisely
Her: Umm D
Me: Wow nice! I'm guessing you're........ 18
Her: Yeah. I don't want to be a jerk but it's just better if we don't go out because I have a boyfriend of 6 years and it's not fair. Sorry
Me: No biggie. Sounds like a solid relationship! Life is fast, and you seem like fun, so we'll keep a strictly platonic relationship. So I MIGHT text you something fun periodically :P
The interest was there for sure. She probably doesn't have a boyfriend, but just got cold feet. Either way that's completely fine. With this response I wanted to display that I didn't give a shit, and that I'm just a cool calm person. Also, that I wanted to leave room for further interaction. I'm just looking for a solid response in case I come across this in the future without having to resort to BF destroyer.
I'm well aware of what I'm asking, and I know most people would say BF destroyer anyway, but that comes off as really fake this early on in the interaction in my humble opinion, and I actually don't like using BF destroyer. To beta to soon!
