I'm a newby here. I'll introduce myself tomorrow in the proper sector. But I wanted to get this off my chest right away!
I'm just getting back into the game and this is my first hour researching again but here goes. I was hoping on some advice and critique on my texting game.
Here in the Netherlands texting means you can keep it casual, but flirtatious and cocky funny.
That's what I'm doing with a girl right now. But first you'll need some extra info about our meet i think.
I had fun with her four days ago during our carnival. (which takes 5 days, and i met her on day 4 of the feast) it was fun and a saw her again on day 5. (that's two days ago as of right now)
On day 4, i first met her and later that evening also her brother. I partied with the bother and made him approve me. He actually repeatedly said i was the most awesome guy in our group. This led to some awesome party time with his sister and a little kiss.
Her brother and i exchanged numbers in the end, his sister didn't ask me so i just went with it because i was to drunk to think of a clever way to get her to ask me for my number.
I met up with them the next day, day 5, and introduced myself to some more of her friends and made sure I was charming in every way.
I gave her a kiss on lips on both days. It didn't feel right to go for a full kiss. I didn't get the right vibe from her yet, but i could at least tell that she likes me in some way.
She got my number from her brother on day 5, texting me where i was. So i replied. We partied some more and then our feast was over.
So today I thought what the hell, lets try texting and see if i can build some extra attraction and maybe ask her out. I'm quite into this girl and I wanna see where I can take this.
During carnival I took some pictures of her and me, and the brother. In my first message I included some cute pictures. I send them to her saying: (of course translated from Dutch so this is a bit harder to get the right message across)
Me: Hey! Here are the photo's!
She: You're awesome! Thnx winner. Did you already recover a bit? Xx
Me: Pff, yeah. Just slept an awesome twelve hours. Now all i need is a bit of real food and i'll be fine
You? Fresh and back to work again?
She: aaahh nice! well, i had to be at the 'sporting therapist' at 10.30 so i took the train at 9.00 that wasn't so nice. In the evening i had to work and this morning again, so i didn't have much time to recover jet!
She: The photo's are really nice!!
Me: Yeah especially with me in it
Though lady, done working again? I'm glad SBS (a tv station i work for, this is me trying to DHV with my job) doesn't need me again until next week!
She: Haha, ofcourse! The one with Stijn (her brother) i already used for a present for my mom
Yeah very nice that you can chill for a couple of more days. Luckely tomorrow i'm free as well, only two hours of teaching lessons!
(she's a sports instructor, awesome ass
Me: Hey! I've got copyright on those pictures, what do i get in return?
She: Haha, you're such a joker!
So my guess is, my texting game wasn't all that exhilarating but i did get my replies. And that is at least an IOI, even after not texting back she texted me again, another IOI.
In my last two messages i tried some cocky funny, complementing. After not replying for a couple of hours (she could have been sporting) she sends me a shit-test back. At least that's what i think it is. It's now night time 01:40 over here and i don't want to reply yet. I'll do that tomorrow.
What i thinks is, I could reply just with an:
Or: You haven't met any real jokers lately haven't you? (going on advise read earlier this evening, not sure why i should send this)
Is this correct, how should i reply and when?
(extra important info: i'm leaving for a world trip in two weeks, and she knows this)
