    Hi,

    I got a phone number today from a friend.. It's her friend's don't think she actually expects/expected me to do anything with it, though I plan on writing anyway. What is there to lose as I don't know the girl anyway.

    So I thought about something like. F1 is my friend, F2 is the other girl

    Hey F2, F1 told me we'd make a killer match, though I'd rather you tell me now, if you're some sort of freak so that we don't start going out and get married and i THEN discover this about you. [My name]

    Edit: I have no clue who this girl is, I've only seen her picture

    ello mate, dont be a plonka, just tell her how u feel - get in touch with her only if you fancy her.

    I'd say, 'm ####'s mate n i really like you etc, do you wanna meet up for a coffee...

    Mentioning marriage in your initial contact? Pretty sure she will think you're the freak.

    They are just women for gods sake, not some super evil alien. How about you simply tell her that you'd like to get a drink with her sometimes? Jeez...

    ask her if she wants to come for a blind date

    I think I'd be more surprised if someone calls her out of the blue.


    Nothing to lose, but yea, maybe the marriage part is a bit too aggressive, I just don't think changes are any better with a nice guy approach.

    Seriously not a good opening sentence, plus the marriage bit, I think you would seriously have to try to think of a worse start lol.

    All you have to do is highlight that your friend said that you would like her and ask her to meet you or something like that, but try and go in a big group or with your friend so its not just you and her as she might feel uncomfortable.

    Just use a bit of common sense, it goes quite a long way in almost every situation.

    Go for it ;)

    Your BHW USername is "Action Taker"....right

    Now take some cool bhw type of action and flirt with her. Start with messaging her and play stranger with a sweet charm and then after enough suspense reveal yourself in a cool kinda manner.

    Go take some action buddy

    My sister has done this to me a couple times. For some reason, she loves handing out my phone number to guys when she is serving them (She's a waitress). Guys (absolute puds) whom SHE thinks are cute and whom SHE thinks I'll connect with. So while it throws me off-guard, I know my sister and I know she is trying it with good intentions.

    With that being said, I think you are over analyzing this. This is how I would start.

    Just say that you saw her picture through a friend, say that you thought she was stunning (doesn't matter if you do or not, chicks dig compliments), and was curious to see if the two of you could have a connection.

    Worst case scenario is she calls you names and hangs up on you. At least you'll have the experience of trying it out. Who knows, maybe you'll score a date. :cheer2:

    Hi, F1 gave me your number and said we have a lot in common. I was critical at first but after seeing your pic she had my interest. Would you like to go out with me and see if F1 is right? If not, sorry for the intrusion. ActionTaker

    Thanks for the input. I simply know that if somebody called me rather than texted me, I'd hang up within a second as I'd think they were bullshitting me with any opener.. I mean I'd sound too cheezy.

    And the whole complimenting her looks (recommended by the other users) and being nice would sound too much like a suck-up. A girl with decent looks will get hit on hundreds of times per week and she'll dismiss those that basically play her puppy.

    In my experience, it's not so much about the compliment, but how it's delivered. Women can sense sincerity and confidence.

    Once again, you're overthinking this. Random text would reek of laziness. At least a call is a bit more personal. Compliments can sound like whatever a person would like them to, but at the end of the day she's not going to think you're an asshole for calling her pretty.
