I've been off the game for a while, started dating again recently. Was never a natural, but got quite competent at a time. So I'm back and rusty, but doing my revision and getting it back.
So I got a great text conversation going yesterday with this girl, but I stalled it tonight! I want to make the next move a good 1. Check out these 2 conversations and please advise me peeps.
Me: Hey cutie, just checked your new hair do on FaceBook. x
Her: Hey, sorry I haven't had a chance to call you back. How are you? x
Me: Busy. My skin got some summer sun. How's your china white? x
Her: Apart from the slightly darker hands, as pale as ever! x
Me: Tanned hands. My gosh. Pale as ever?.. I can deal with that, I think (-: Your skins great... but it's not your best quality
Her: What is...!?
Me: If I tell you, you might get a big head and might think I've gone sweet on you... You know, it's merely an observation
Her: My arrogance doesn't need any inflation! x
Me: Your voice, well... it's beautiful. Ok! Really, it's the best I've heard. That's enough, for now. x
Her: I've never had anyone say that before. x
So that's decent work. The compliment, I also meant it. So I text her back this eve. But I rushed it! I'm rusty guys!
Me: Stop it!
Her: Stop what!?
Me: Smiling because I texted you
Now this sh1t is a bit too 'Gamey' I think. The first text conversation (yesterday's) was following some PUA advice and me incorporating my own thing from stuff about this particular girl. But what I sent this was a bit contrived, looks like some sh1t from the internet, and I could have pulled that 1 better by making it more funny. Sure it's cocky, but not funny enough. AND... There was nothing she could have hit me back with, it was just a stopper. As indeed, I've no response back this eve. I could have worded that response better. such as:
Me: Stop smiling and thinking about me. See, you're doing it.. right... now.
It's not a killer, could have been worse. I'll leave sending her another text this eve. Damage limitation. That'll probs work in favour of the arrogance (which i now think wasn't appropriate/handled/worded well) of this last message I sent her. Like I don't require a long(ish) text session like yesterday to make me feel good. Just left it.
I haven't screwed up too bad, it's just that I sent a conversation stopper with no hooks, but that wasn't the plan! I'm working nights for a while from Fri, and I could have bagged a 2nd date tomorrow (Thurs) If I'd played it right this eve.
She might have even digged the last message, and it could work in my favour if I don't contact her for a short while. But I don't think so. I'm a cynic! It's healthy!
p.s. I'm going to get some more numbers, cos i know that at least flirting with other girls at the same time helps your confidence etc. Ha, I like this girl! that's my problem! She's maybe only a 6 or 7 (hey not bad), but she's really brainy and has the best voice. I've met someone I like when I've just come back on the scene and am rusty!
