Ok so i noticed an acquaintance of mine on facebook became single. Rough break up after a long a relationship. Just going through a break up of sorts myself i decided to chat with her seeing as i had my eye on her. I knew she was going to have a shield up because we dont know each other well and my recent break up was my way through it. Here it goes...
ok nvm i just realized i lost the chat so i will summarize.
opened with casual how are you etc. Then i brought up her having a rough week and she said yea but kept it short. I told her i was in the same boat and briefly told her my situation. Because of this she opened up and told me much more. We made some jokes about it and i said yea it even sucks because its cold so its hard to go out because no one wants to. She said she went out this weekend but it wasnt that good because of carrying a coat etc. I asked where she went. One of the bars she mentioned i had gone to before and they happen to have a mechanical bull. i asked if she had ridden it but she said no she just likes to watch people fall off. I said oh then we have to go and you are riding the bull! She said her making a fool out of herself dancing was enough.
Thats the basic summary. My transitions from getting her to open up to escalating to us going out together were really smooth and playful.
The problem here is that i was talking to one of my friends as well. I decided to ask his opinion on my Number Close and she logged off facebook while i was in chat with him. DOH! huge screw up because without the number close my intentions were probably not perceived as more than friends.
What i was going to say "hey i have to go but give me your number because we are going to xxxxxx this weekend and you are riding the bull."
Now i have to try to salvage this and im looking for the best way to. Hopefully i can catch her online again before the weekend and i want to say something like. "hey you went offline before i could get your number. blah blah something about the bull"? Im thinking i can throw in that she would look sexy on it too somehow that way its clear what my intentions are.
