Re: lol kyro has a date

So, did you find enough testosterone to call her yet???

Gogogogogo!!!

As an aside, I vote to skip mentioning "I'm an online poker pro" on the 1st date...

It's actually pretty tough and if that girl is good, she probably knows how to handle dead wood.

I got her number 18 hours ago. I'll give her a call either tomorrow or Friday.

Not good.... I'm hearing excuses!!!

Come on.... Do it **Now**

I was once in your shoes (many many many years ago). The best strategy is the NOW strategy. Don't put it off. If I gave someone my number, I want them calling the next day.

Nothing is a bigger turn off than the air of desperation.

Re: lol kyro has a date

It's really personality type. If she wants me to call her immediately (like, right this second), then she's probably pretty clingy. And I don't deal well with clingy girls at all, so it wouldn't work out anyways.

But she doesn't strike me as clingy, so I'll just give it a day or so.

Oh give me a break! Calling her the next day is not "desperation". We're not in high school. It's simple courtesy and politeness.

Re: lol kyro has a date

Seriously, I doubt it's going to matter either way. And if does, she's not even remotely worth it.

Humans desire things that are readily accessible less than things that are not. It is pretty simple, and at the heart of much (if not most) sales and marketing. People are not rational. Being a little inaccessible will only help, as will being a little mysterious.

Re: lol kyro has a date

I'm just trying to figure out how Valentine's day works into the calling her calculation.

I think today is better because Friday is too long and you don't want to call her on Valentine's day.

Sounds like someone is bitter that she's not going to get to have wild sex with me this weekend.

Re: lol kyro has a date

[head in hands]

Expecting you to call her once she's given you her number is not being clingy and desperate. It's her crediting you with having a modicum of politeness.

What, were you raised by wolves?

Also, perceived scarcity is a vastly overrated quality when it comes to women. She either wants to go out with kyro or she doesn't. Calling now or later is not going to impact that except it's going to make her wonder if he's rude or waiting on purpose (which looks a lot more desperate).

Striking while the iron is hot>>>>>Playing it cool.

I really hope that my problem isn't assuming that everyone is acting like adults here...

Kyro, My read is that you're chicken **** to call her and you're just putting it off because it's easy to do...

In honor of Valentines day, here's a true story about me meeting my wife in 1996:

I was at a young adult conference for Catholics. The ratio at the convention was literally 5 single women to 1 man (OMG!). I was a volunteer/helper. Well, I was interested in this cute girl who was also a volunteer. I kept putting off asking her for her number. Well, the convention was finally over and people were leaving, I figured this was my chance! Well, except she left early... I was bummed and was walking back to my car and guess who was walking back to the center? Yep, the girl!!!! I proceeded to get her number. (Yeah me...) Well, I was busy that weekend, so I figured I call her the following week... Well I kept delaying it, figuring the next day would be a better time to call. Well one day... I was 50 miles away with another set of friends and guess who I run into??? Yep, her.... I was just sitting there and I look up and there she was walking right toward me... (OMG!!!) I was a little freaked... (LOL) Anyway we had a great talk, I apologied for not calling her. When I didn't call, she said she was really worried that she wrote her number down wrong...
Anyway, I called her the NEXT day, we set up a first date to go minature golfing (best 1st date activity imo) and well... we'll be happily married 10 years in August.

Good luck dude.
