Ok so real quick background. I'm completely new to this shit and I've never asked girls for their number before (unless I was friends with them for a while). College student, decided I've got to change the way I do things.. shy doesn't work. So it's taken me a lot of balls just to talk to this girl in class (another thing I never would do), but I forced myself to. So far been awkward conversations but I think I've played them off well enough that it might've just been awkward for me, I got plenty of smiles at least.. either there was interest or she's just really nice.
So I decided I've gotta keep pushing myself to get out of my comfort zone and just straight asked for her number today after class (never done this before). She's a 10, so you can imagine my nerves. Whole thing to me seems awkward as hell... she replies she's got a boyfriend, but gives me the number anyway and says maybe we can still hang out or something. So afterwards I'm mainly just embarrassed at my pathetic awkwardness and the semi-fail of her having a boyfriend, but I still got the number (and if I can ask a 10 for a number I can ask anyone).
So enough with that. Now what? I definitely need to text her within the next day before our next class together.. definitely don't want to bring that feeling of awkwardness in next time we see each other, need to turn that around. So what do I text her? I'm feeling maybe a joke on the awkward thing, turn it on her pretend like she was the awkward one. Or just avoid that subject and hope she didn't really notice it. What say you guys?
