    Go old school - man up, and call her in person - skip the texting.
    And, watch the movie "Swingers" for more information on how long to wait...

    Winner! Do you really want to explain to others that your first date came as a result of a text? You might as well have answered a craigslist ad.
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    Be a man and call her.

    Tell her you like her and you want to take her out.

    Playing games, waiting... that's all boy stuff.

    Seriously... is this how the young men are doing it these days? Texting?! JESUS CHRIST.

    But IMO texting is too impersonal for a first contact. I suggest calling her. That way you can get to know her somewhat over the phone. If you have a real connection the conversation usually flows. And you will be amazed how long a phone call can last. Then when you do meet her (coffee being a great idea) you will already know a lot about her and can lead in with interests of hers. Just be yourself and don't try to impress her with false B.S.
    Good luck and keep us posted.

    text her with:
    "Are you an overdue library book? - 'Cause you have 'Fine' written all over you"

    ~or~

    "Is that a mirror in your pocket? 'Cause I can see myself in your pants"
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    Text her your junk asap. There's no telling when she'll see it again.

    Girls who get my number usually call the same day. So, I think, there is no need to play it cool.

    Wait a couple days then call her between 2am and 4am, make sure you've had a little to drink first.....works 20% of the time 100% of the time.
    Ahhhh...Ahhhh....it's the hammy, it's the hammy!!

    OP - you're 27 and you don't know how to interact with women? WTF have you been doing all this time? if you were a teenager, I'd understand your uncertainty.

    grow a pair and give the woman a phone call. ask her out somewhere. talk, and listen to her. she wouldn't have given you the number if she didn't want you to ask her out.

    Ask her out for a cup of coffee, be yourself, be someplace neutral with other people around, and be someplace where you aren't under the influence of drugs or alcohol, like at a bar.

    Keep it and the first time time and money investment simple. You'll know after that if you want to see her again and vice versa. Just be yourself. And screw texting, call her.

    Exactly! dump this texting horsesh**! Call her. Meet her for a coffee. Break the ice somehow. Face time over texting, any time! Old school, booh-yah!

    I texted my bike this morning asking for a ride. So far, no response.

    You should probably just man up and go climb on that. She'll appreciate it. Especially if you make it nice and rough.

    Sometimes the nicest compliment for a girl is to see you're embarassed by her mere presence...be yourself, easy.

    She didn't text back. So maybe I texted too soon, or texted the wrong thing.

    What did you text? Audience need to know.


    The only texting I have done as a kid was writing NSFW stuff on walls. Worked fairly well, I should say. Got the message across.

    That was a TEST! To see if you were man enough to call her after she ignored the text.

    She is still clutching her phone (in my day the girls sat by the phone) waiting for it to ring with your name displayed.

    Don't give up so easily!

    education, financial status, enlightenment..these things and others are easily covered by the dirt roost from boys on bikes. I'm pretty sure we technically don't ever leave middle school.
