I was thinking of sharing my recent screw up. There's this girl I have met recently, we went twice on a date, no kiss close or anything, just light flirting. She seems to be into me as she texts me a lot.
She wanted to meet yesterday but I had already planned to meet another girl later in the evening, and I didn't feel like meeting her earlier (2 dates on the same day is too much for me and I was busy with some other things). So, I politely declined and told her I had other plans with friends.
Later, she kept texting me about how great the exhibition she went to was, etc. I went along and pretended to be interested and at some point wrote "well, we aren't doing anything cultural, just chilling at the park and playing frisbee".
She then answered that the exhibition was over and that she was not too far from the park, and asked if she could joined us.
This is when I realised I completely farked up. I answered that I would have invited her with pleasure but we were about to leave. I said I had a dinner in 1 hour and that I had to get back to get ready for it. I also promised to take her to the park with me next time (also put a smilie).
She replied in the end "lol, too bad. I love frisbee "
It seems I managed to minimise the damage, but I thought this was an interesting lesson when text gaming.
Never brag too much or it will backfire...
Another issue that a friend of mine raised was that I was too "obedient". I should have not replied to her every message (the exchange was made up of 5-6 messages from each of us). I should have waited until late evening to reply to her very first message.
This troubles me a bit as I am still in the process of finding out my "style". Do you guys think that my friend is right? This is important as I will take that into account next time I text a girl.
For the time being, I will stay silent for 2-3 days and will resurface again. Seems like the best way to go.
