I need some advice on what my next step should be in this conversation with this HB8 on okcupid. it wasn't great conversation; i didn't get too much buy-in from her. here's the convo:
me: Ok, a couple things; one, a dental hygienist, research facility manager, and a teacher? When do you sleep haha. Also, you volunteer every week AND you like to travel? I mean...this feels a little catfish-y to me.
her: lol I wish It were but I don't want to waste my life so I stay busy
me: So what's your secret? Coffee? Sugar? Meth? (hopefully it's not meth)
her: no secret.. Just living life. I don't drink much coffee unless you count my one tea In the morning.. I am a dental hygienist so sugar Is definitely a no go for me.. and meth no thanks. =)
me: No sugar?! I don't know if you're really "living life" if you don't occasionally snack on a reeses peanut butter cup or something .
her: occasionally I do lol
me: So when you aren't working three jobs at once, what do you like to do for fun?
her :I am on a figure skating team and I am In choir =)
me: Wow, a woman of many talents . What kind of songs does your choir do?
her: We do all sorts depending on the concert
me: Nice. I was in a choir in 7th and 8th grade. I wish my voice was better now, singing is a good time!
So, since your favorite food ever is mashed potatoes, that means your ideal first date would be at KFC...right?
her: No lol
me: Haha, ok, we can save KFC for another time. How about a drink instead?
it's at this point she doesn't respond. I said whatever; this wasn't one of my better conversations anyway, move on to the next one. then, she replies, a week after my last message, and says:
her: Hey sorry my computer and phone broke at the same time the last few days so ive been trying to catch up on work now that I at least have my phone fixed
So, any advice where to go from here? even this message isn't a answer to my question, more of an explanation to why she didn't respond sooner. is this salvageable?
