    Default What to text back after no response?

    Hi experts,
    I met a girl at the gym, showed value, built some small attraction and she gave me her number. When I asked her for a drink, she didn't respond. What is the next step. I know what I would do..I need a gut check. Thanks!

    Me: "Hi, it's Dave from the gym. Here's my number. I hope that you didn't have too much anger to work out today.

    Her: (next day) Ha, hey sorry was passed out last night

    Me: (few hours later) Got it. I need more sleep too. I know you like to work out alone so let's get a drink and talk about working out! I saw some flaws in your squat form .

    NO RESPONSE!

    Eh, no offense, not the best text game I've ever seen, of course mine can be crap too. In a situation like this, I would say you would have been better off building a little more rapport, because you had only just met her. Maybe instead of asking for drinks, you coulda busted on her a bit and been like "Passed out huh? I knew I smelled alcohol on you at the gym".

    The main point here is usually try to get some fun banter going and then ask her out. ELevate her mood, you know?

    The only flaw I see in this is the flaw in her squat thing. You could have ended it with just asking her out and that would've been good. Also don't take it too personal, just wait a couple of days and text her again. She might have not have received your text or was just busy.

    You asked her out for a drink WAY TO EARLY ....You needed a few more text sessions to build rapport and comfort

    something I learned when a girl hasn't responded to you, it means she hasn't responded YET! !!

    been in your choose bro! wait couple days, if she didn't respond, message her with a new topic. Good luck!

    Guys, thanks for all the advice. Just trying to improve my game. I texted her back 9 days later because I saw her walking as I was driving so it was an opportunity to change topic:

    Me: Hi! Saw you today walking to the gym...waved but you seed focused as always. Seemed late for you..recovering from the night before?

    her: ha hey nah I just had some stuff I needed to take care of this morning.

    me: good, I strive to be like you and was worried you were slipping.

    NO REPLY

    Ok, I'll played the text game 100 of times, and I usually quit at this point...but I want to learn and get better. I haven't seen or texted her. I'm thinking change topic again?

    Dude. SO AFC! Don't put this girl on a pedestal. She hasn't done anything yet to deserve validation from you. Never tell a girl that you want to be more like her, or in your case "I strive to be like you". This text gives the impression that you feel inferior to her which shouldn't be the case seeing as you just met her. Stop treating her like a prize, and remember that YOU'RE the prize. You want HER chasing YOU (I understand this early in the game you'll have to do most of the work but imo you pushed for a meetup too soon). I'm not an expert or anything, there are plenty of other guys on this forum with way more valuable information, but that's just my two cents.

    REMEMBER! You're the shit and you know it, so act like it.

    CapT is right. Don't portray the girl as better than yourself, even as a joke. Thats a big no-no.

    Second mistake - see dragonfire's post. Its always better to talk/flirt for a while over text, rather than go straight for the ask-out. You can maximize your chances by asking her out during a high point in the conversation.

    Third mistake - waiting 9 days. Thats too long, and gives her too much time to forget you entirely or run into another guy. I would have texted her again 24 hours after her no-response, with something light-hearted (see any of t-mal's threads) thats completely unrelated to what you last said, and she if she latches on.

    You're fine though. These are easily correctable mistakes. You know what not to do in the future.
