Reply To: How to convert ping into buy in?
I don’t have very high hopes for this because she’s already said no to you twice without suggesting an alternative. When they want to see you, they suggest an alternative. I would just let it go. Ping her again in a month and if she starts asking questions about you, ask her out. If she doesn’t, ping her again in two months. My prediction is that this will go nowhere, but you can’t just stay in this lukewarm, friendly dynamic with her.
Examples of text pings:
“i’m at a party on a boat. there’s a girl on the dance floor who looks just like you. makes me want to flirt with her :-)”
“it might be fun, but it’s dangerous, it’s stupid, and it’s illegal. you guys enjoy yourselves, though.” 1 minute later: “yikes sorry wrong im. hi <whateverHerNameIs>! please ignore”
