Met a girl at the bus stop on the way to college yesterday. Really friendly french girl doing her erasmus over here. We got chatting and ended up talking the whole way to college, really good conversation and there was obvious flirting on both sides (not sure on mine but the intention was there!). So when we were going our seperate ways to lectures, i asked for her number and she willingly obliged. After a bit of confusion with irish/french numbers we said our goodbyes and headed off.
So after college i waited till i got home and sent her a text, not being sure if the number had the right area code etc. Waited a while and heard nothing back. Said to myself, its probably the area code thats the problem. So then i had the brilliant idea of hiding my caller id and calling her to check if the number i sent the text to actually works... It did... now i'm in third stage denial of "she wasn't even that hot anyways" :) :(

not everyone has the same texting etiquette as horny irishmen, you'll probably still hear from her at some stage

You didn't give her much of a chance did you. How long was it between sending the first text message and turning in to a stalker?

If you just ring again and leave a voicemail to apologise for the text and the call that followed it, that should sort it and she'll be sure to call you back.

Women like guys to go that extra mile.

Maybe even sing your apology to your voicemail.

Those apologies only work in person. He'll have to call over to her house.

Ah you dope. Should've called on private and put on a completely different voice asking "is Sully there?"
And as the others have said, waited a bit longer than a few hours to go into full-on stalker mode.

She's funny in short bursts, doesn't go on waffling and whinging about what she had for her tea and all that. Tuk was great though he posts way less now.
