Hmm, so here's how it went. Called, and she picked up. We talked for a few minutes about the holiday and weekend. She was giggling and seemed happy. I said I'd like to take you out Saturday. She said, she's free. I said how's your artistic ability? She said, not good (laughing). Why? I said thought it would be cool for us to take a painting class. She giggled again, seemed okay. I said, where it was, and it seemed we both said almost at the same time, it's better to take one car and pick her up. I said we'd go and get something to eat, just text me your address. She said cool. We chatted for a bit more, then I said goodnight. The whole conversation was maybe 10 minutes or so. Stupid me, I forgot to tell her the time I'd be there. So I sent a quick text about an hour later saying Looking forward in seeing you Saturday at 7:30pm. Shoot me your address when you get a chance.

No response. She usually texts back in a few minutes. I guess I could be over thinking it or she doesn't want to send me her address too fast. Not sure. I've been going over in my head if I said something wrong, but cannot think of it.

Ideas?

That's pretty creative man.

My guess is as good as yours regarding the address.

Yeah, I don't know what to tell you. Just send another text tomorrow, something irrelevant and if she doesn't hit before tomorrow evening, delete.

jimbo,
I'm saying this kindly - girls giggle, women don't.

She's starting to sound a bit immature and flaky to me.

Maybe you want to re-think this ?

Interestingly enough, I tried that with another woman a few weeks ago as she didn't respond to my text for a second date. Her response was she's not ready for to date again. This one seemed different as we had a make out session after the end of the first date and she already agreed for Saturday night and told me to pick her up at her place. Sending another text prob. not a good idea. Looks bad.

Prob. just over thinking it. I guess just let the chips fall where they may and go from there.

I wouldn't ask for her address until the day of. Maybe she doesn't want you to show up before the date. She has no idea how potentially crazy you may be. It happens. Don't take it personal and just go have a great date.

You are a very good guy. Not many men go to that sort of effort. It's kind, endearing, and courteous...not to mention fun. I don't know what is up with this girl. I want you to know, however, that you are a catch. Please don't think that her lack of response means that you did anything wrong: you did everything right. Most women--including myself--would appreciate this very much. Regardless of what happens with her, please keep being your wonderful self.

It was a laughing. I consider giggling and laughing pretty much the same.

Certainly makes sense. I'm not going to chase nor purchase the tickets until I hear from her. I will let the chips fall where they may.

Thank you for the kind words. Just trying to do something different. Guess not up her alley. It's okay. Can't please everyone all the time. lol.

Also, she didn't seem flaky prior. She even reached out an confirmed to me our 1st date a couple of days prior to the date. Strange situation.

Popsicle was right. She texted me tonight with her address. Strangely enough, she left out her apt #. How do I ask her apt. # w/o sounding like a creep?
