So last summer I met this girl on the subway, we talked for awhile and then went and grabbed coffee. We spent like two hours together and then she had to go because she was flying home to Europe the next day. I did get her number. When she got home we started texting on and off, but I have found out recently that she is coming back to the US in June and I definitely want to hook up with her. I’ve been stepping up my texting with her and getting flirty but she is sweet and innocent and despite being very attractive does not have a lot of experience with guys and certainly no experience with an American guy who is bold, flirty, and outspoken. My fear is that I will scare her off. So I am texting her the other night and I'm trying to step it up a little bit but I think I kind of wimped out
M: Hey ______ , be honest, Is walking around in just purple boxer briefs and black dress socks goofy looking ?!?!?!?!
H: You are goofy no matter what you're wearing but please don't send any snaps!!!!
M: But is the bow tie too much
H: What is that?
M: The tie you wear with a tuxedo silly
H: Right!!! that is what we in Danish call "prikken over i'et"
M; You should call it bøen tiedun
H: But that does not make any sense AT ALL...!?
M: But it sounds so good
And stop thinking you are special because you have three extra letters in your alphabet .... I'm not impressed
H: Haha, you are soooo jealous obviously!!! But bøen tiedun, it sounds dutch
M: Dutch , Danish ..... you guys are all the same
M: If you really want to impress me come up with an entirely new alphabet like the goofy Russians did !!
H: I have never seen the Russians as being goofy, but maybe you have some insider knowledge
M: Well working for the CIA I know lots of things that most people don't
H: I keep forgetting that so do you have any idea when they will invade the Baltic countries?
H: Btw, I have no idea what I'm doing now
SHE SENDS ME A PICTURE THAT IS MOSTLY BLACK AND I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT IT IS
M: WTF is that picture ?!?!?!?
........ are you drunk already ???
H: My mom is filling me up with red wine and I'm so tired - not a good combo
M: HA HA HA ...... Eat some flæskesvær so you vomit
H: The best advice EVER!!! So sweet of you....NOT! Ill eat candy instead though
M: So what sort of trouble are you going to cause this weekend
H: Absolutely none - for once!!!! birthday brunch tomorrow with some family, volleyball and work Sunday and that's it.. and you??
M: Well I'm going out to dinner tomorrow night with a friend and hockey on Sunday
H: Don't hurt yourself again then! Is it actually only practice or is it also league matches?
M: No we play for real ..... We have sticks and everything
H: Waow!!! You are so lucky, we only stick to air volleyball - cannot afford balls, and the guys ones are not big enough!!!!
M: Air volleyball, air guitar ..... It's all good ... Although I bet you have a lot of fights over whether the ball was in or out
H: How could you possibly know!? well, tv show now! Have fun and talk soon.. xoxo
M: You have a good weekend and take care of yourself ______
H: Will do and you too
M: A big American hug from me to you
H: A big Danish hug back
M: Only one problem with an American
M: There is often an ass grab mixed in with it
H: OMG!!!! I'm so lucky being at my moms place right now
M: Wait till you come back to the U.S. ….. Your mom can’t save you here
SOOOO now there is a three minuet delay in her responding when before it was thirty seconds at the most and I’m thinking I blew it, I've scared her off, so I wimp out and respond
M: Just kidding .... I'll take very good care of you
M: Although we might do a bit of drinking and cause some trouble
H: Haha, it is always good and fun to be drunk and cause trouble once or twice in a while.. I will look forward to it, talk to you soon
M: Good night & sweet dreams …. I’ll look forward to that 3AM text from you
H: HA HA HA, I’m sorry I keep forgetting about the six hour time difference
M: No Worries, I always enjoy being woken up by an attractive young lady in the early morning hours
H: I bet you do J
SO the question is …. Did I screw up by wimping out and saying “just kidding”, and how do I keep from scaring her off. She has told me repeatedly that I am nothing like the guys in Denmark, (I’m guessing that’s a good thing) but I am also wondering if I need to tone it down to like 60% with her so I don’t overwhelm her !?!?!?!?
