Re: Feedback on my text game
One thing you are doing well is giving her something to respond to. I see a lot of texts fail when you give a half-assed response like "That's cool" without following up with something and you do a good job at avoiding that trap. That one spot there were you sent two messages, I see it as though you spotted your mistake and self-corrected by giving her something more appealing to respond to. So in that case, you safetied up and chose the less damaging of the two options. Not bad. And again, I don't know how long was spent between messages. Maybe there was a lag there and you felt you had to give her something better, in which case it was maybe the only move you even had. Good on you for spotting it either way.
Personally though, and this is just my personal thing. I don't banter (or do anything else) over text unless it's leading up to a date/meeting. I know a lot of PUA guys want you to become a master at texting on and on and on, but the reality in my experience is that it actually drives the girl away because your texts, while fun and flirty and solid, are really low-level as far as emotional spikes go. Honestly, the girl probably gets more of a spike from making eye contact with a cute guy in starbucks. This gets even more true as time wears on and she's gotten used to seeing you on her phone without having to invest in a meet up. So I definitely would have at least ended that conversation with a little bit of examining logistics, as was mentioned above. Basically, you're coming off as a texting buddy as opposed to date material when you don't at least push the logistics aspect a little bit.
I'm not saying you should have pressed her for a date right before her test. The timing was bad there (not your fault, of course... you didn't know). But you should have felt out her calendar for the upcoming week or something like that.
And along those lines, I probably would have looked for another rock climbing adventure or something, rather than coffee or drinks or somesuch. This way, you're doing something you enjoy and you can show her your expertise. Also, it further cements you as a fun special guy, rather than average. I mean, anybody can ask a girl out for coffee! Maybe you can test the waters and see how receptive she'd be to you finding a new place for her to climb and invite her along. She sees you as a rock climbing adventure type. I think setting up dinner or coffee would be a real let down for her and I doubt you'll get as good of a response as you would if you propose something a little more exciting and out there.
Either way, you must always be clear that you are not looking for an emotional spike by texting, you are looking to meet up. Otherwise, you are competing with every single possible emotional spike surrounding her, every other guy, every ex, every victoria's secret email in her inbox. You become just another distraction from what she's REALLY looking for. Which is a real opportunity for a real connection with a real guy.
