Is shyness a reason why your reluctant to call? If so, there is nothing wrong with thinking about what you want to talk about before you call. It's the same deal as the messages confidence, fun, playful.

One tip to help with confidence, is don't put the girl on a pedistal. You're trying to find out if she is a good match for you as much as the other way around. Your not trying to trick her into banging you or anything like that. Your just looking to have a good time. Before you place the call, make sure your in a good place mentally. Nothing wrong with what your doing so there is not need to feel awkward.
Shyness, and when I get nervous I tend to stutter.

Re: Online dating thread

Amazin, if you didn't move to Florida to pursue a career in baseball then why are you saying in your profile "I moved here to pursue my dream of playing professional baseball"?

Re: Online dating thread

This is the convo with the thin blonde girl. How am I doing?

me
11/30/2012 5:19:58 PM
You definitely look like you know how to have a good time! I like loud-mouthed girls, always been a turn on for me. How's your night going?

her
11/30/2012 6:42:14 PM
Good so far just took a run. Yours?


me
11/30/2012 6:46:41 PM
Just in from my workout about to head to the casino now. What's your weekend looking like?

her
11/30/2012 7:08:57 PM
Not too sure yet. I was wanting to go out but I'm tired lol


me
11/30/2012 7:49:58 PM
C'mon, you gotta be a trooper! Don't let a little fatigue ruin your weekend! I still haven't made it to the Casino.. procrastinating but I'll get it together.

Do you do your clubbing in St Pete - Palm Harbor area or do you go to Tampa?

her
11/30/2012 9:26:50 PM
I go all over lol


me
11/30/2012 10:03:23 PM
I've been to St. Pete a couple times. Uh, it has its moments. Never been to Palm Harbor though. I finally made it to the casino. Got the whole night ahead of me now

me
11/30/2012 10:28:33 PM
Having its moments was a bad thin, not sure if you picked up on that :-P

her
12/1/2012 3:14:17 AM
Lol I hear that!


me
12/1/2012 4:18:57 AM
Admittedly, I didn't see too much of the city. The parts I did were were very ghetto. Anyway, I'm still atthe casino working. Did you ever make it out tonight?

her
12/1/2012 10:00:38 AM
Yes I did


me
12/1/2012 6:06:28 PM
How could you leave without telling me? I stayed at the casino all night, where did you go.

her
12/1/2012 6:19:13 PM
Lol I just went to a local bar..nothing special


me
12/1/2012 6:39:27 PM
My night was nothing special either. I'm self employed (poker player) so I was actually working all night. Still managed to have some fun during my breaks though :-0

What did you drink last night?

her
12/1/2012 6:46:43 PM
Lol I always drink vodka. And I had a couple shots of tequila lol


me
12/1/2012 7:03:01 PM
You and I have that in common. I only drink light liquors. Had a couple of bad experiences with dark liquor, (don't ask) and now, no more. lol

her
12/1/2012 7:09:55 PM
Hahaha I hear that


me
12/1/2012 7:16:31 PM
What's your name? Mine's is Seymour

her
12/1/2012 7:22:49 PM
Tammy


me
12/1/2012 7:39:49 PM
Nice to meet you... headed out again tonight? Imma be in the casino working.

her
12/1/2012 7:47:24 PM
Lol I'm guessing u spend a lot of time there...I've never gone. And No I'm not heading out tonight as far as I know


me
12/1/2012 7:50:57 PM
Way too much time, Tammy.. it's my unfortunate second home. Oh well, I like what I do and I'm my own boss, not too many people can say that. Soon I'll be in Palm Harbor though and we'll go out and have a great time

me
12/2/2012 9:28:07 PM
So tell me what kind of trouble you got into this weekend...

her
12/2/2012 10:31:07 PM
Lol none. Bought some new stuff today which always feels good


me
12/2/2012 11:08:59 PM

Re: Online dating thread

your conversation is too long and kinda boring. all you really need is just 2 to 3 funny/playful messages each back and forth then get her number and take it to texting. try to avoid boring interview-style questions. (your questions arent that bad, but just sayin)

Re: Online dating thread

Yeah...that.

it's not lol-terrible....in that it could definitely be worse and she seems to be kind of responding somewhat positively.

But the whole "what do you do? I'm self-employed (poker player)...okay, I'm off to the casino!!" isn't exactly going to win you points. You come off as a gambling degen. Stop coming off as a gambling degen would be a good thing.

You're positive and upbeat but also kind of hyper and a bit desperatey I think. Maybe I'm over-reading that though.

I was thinking the same thing. She completely ignored it, which I think is bad. It almost sounds weird. Like, why throw that out there.

Digressing... Ask her to come over and watch Forrest Gump. She is a runner...

I've heard this before. Someone told me never to pick up the phone for a girl on Friday or Saturday because you want them to think you're too busy out having a great time.

Whoever told you this advice: ignore everything else they have ever said too.

Every message you sent her was longer than her reply. Reeks of desperation.

Re: Online dating thread

amazinmets73,

Picking up girls is a complicated thing where there are many traps for the unwary. Girls will always be testing you and if you fail a test, that's it. That's why it's important to project an image of flawlessness and hide any potential weaknesses. For example, moving to Florida to be a pro baseball player is romantic and sexy, and girls don't care if it is true or not. You also have to follow rules, such as showing that you are too busy to have time for them. That's the formula for success with girls.

Re: Online dating thread

I don't care how hot someone is, I want nothing to do with someone that ends every message in "lol", doesn't ask me stuff, and is boring as ****. With girls like that, either get the number or set a date pronto or move on. That's fine if you want to meet girls like that at a bar, but it's a waste of time online.

its not a waste of time if you realize they are good for a quick bang and thats it.

saying you moved to florida for baseball is way better than saying you moved for poker bc of black friday.

How do you know when you're being tested?
