Gaming OKCupid on a Monday night, decided to play this one a little different. She ended up giving me her number while simultaneously asking for mine. Usually I always get the girls number and just shoot her a text immediately, but I want to see if I built enough value with this one. Quick breakdowns below with bolded comments.
ME: I’m robbing a bank tomorrow, you down? (Just something I use a lot. It breaks the typical, “What are your favorites things to do?” monotony of online dating)
HER: Definitely! I could use some extra cash! Are we going halves? (She bit and is intrigued enough to ask another question)
ME: Well, as the master thief, I take a larger cut. You are my accomplice. Robin to my Batman 😉 (Still haven’t quite proven yourself, girl).
HER: Okay, deal, as long as you for real take the lead! This will only be my second bank robbery. I’m a newbie. (Translation: I want to be led by a strong man)
ME: Was that a metaphor for online dating in your last message? (Genuinely curious)
HER: Haha, no! (Translation: you broke the fun game! Stop it or I’ll run away).
ME: You seem cool. I hate messaging on here, it’s tedious. Plus, all illusions we build on here are shattered within 3 minutes of meeting in person. In the end it’s all about chemistry so…quick drink to see if we get along? 🙂 (Going for the kill)
HER: I’m game 🙂 (Still playing coy…most girls just give me their number at this point)
ME: number (No punctuation, to the point. Translation: I know what you’re trying to do, and I don’t care)
HER: xxx-xxx-xxxx yours?
Going to sit tight for a day and see if she hits me up.
