    Default Opened HB9 on FB... No response but accepts request after few months

    So, I know I've already posted about facebook game - But I have a different situation here.. In February I added a random HB9 (a few mutual friends, never met) with the following message attached:

    "Hi (name)! I know adding you is really random, but it was actually done by complete accident (stupid iPhone lol). But not gonna lie, once I saw your picture I decided to leave it, because I thought you were absolutely gorgeous… Figured it wouldn’t hurt to say hi

    Hope this doesn’t come off creepy, it wasn’t my intention and its not my style at all!
    "

    I know there's a lot wrong with that opener.. But I wanted to try a direct and "honest" approach. Also, I used this one on a HB10, who responded very well to it. But, as suspected, my opener garnered no interest or friend request acceptance..

    Fast forward to today - She just accepted my friend request after months of nothing. I know women will accept almost anyone who adds them and never speak to them. But I find it odd that she took this long and accepts out of the blue. I never sent a follow up after my original opener. Was thinking of re-opening with:

    "So I've been meaning to ask you...
    Why do other peoples sandwiches always taste better than your own?? What's up with that!?
    "

    Not really sure if this is the best approach to go, but I see that the honest, forward guy isn't it.. Her bday was last week if that helps spark something.

    Any guidance or better re-openers?

    Personally, I think your opener is ok, pretty simple. Don't think too much about her not instantly friending you, that's meaningless.

    About your sandwich line, I have to highly encourage you NOT to write this, or anything like this, that is so random and really meaningless.

    I had a female roommate who used to be on OkStupid. We call it Stupid instead of Cupid, exactly because of cut-and-paste lines like this. We would laugh, and I could tell her exactly which website it was cut & pasted from.

    Just be careful, women are used to these cut & paste responses, and nothing turns them off faster (this coming from my female roommate).

    If you want to try to continue with this girl, look deeply at her profile, and interests, use an appropriate response. If she had a picture of her and her friends eating sandwiches, then your line above would apply.

    And regarding her birthday, she has already gotten dozens of 'Happy Birthday' responses, and probably many delayed responses, so if you use her birth date as an opener, you'll want to make it original so it stands out.

    "Happy Birthday! Sorry I couldn't get back to you, but I was busy volunteering for under-privilege children so I haven't been online for the last couple of weeks. Those kids are so cute! You would love them."

    Just something off of the top of my head... Take it from there...

    Thanks for the reply Mingo! Ya I agree about the canned messages. I try to avoid them like the plague. How about something like this:

    Was literally about to say "Sorry do I know you?" and realized I was the one to add you months ago haha... Not my finest moment. So what kind of trouble you getting yourself into lately?

    Or

    I literally just said out loud "Who the hell is this?" and then realized I added you months ago haha... It's ok, I won't hold it against you!
    So what kind of trouble you getting yourself into lately?


    I feel like the first one can work well as it shows I pretty much forgot about her and I'm keeping it light. They're essentially the same thing but said in different way I guess.

    DUDE, .... NEVER say to a girl, especially in an on-line format, I thought you were absolutely gorgeous ...... THAT is a BIG NO NO, It's so very AFC and so unoriginal .... you should have left it at Hi (name)! I know adding you is really random, but it was actually done by complete accident (stupid iPhone lol).
