To online date or not... that IS the question.
But it shouldn't be.
The other night, I hooked up with a "actress" after knowning her for 2 hours. I got her number after about say, 10 minutes of conversation.
Think I'm kidding? Well, I'm really not. It's been awesome lately, girls are flocking to the Internet to meet the "nice guys". They see it as a way to get to know guys first, without the stress of the date.
So basically, you get the girl with the hassle.
Plus read this commentary by pickup guru David Deangelo discussing why the online world is the way to go (as a supplement to the REAL world):
One thing you have to remember about chat rooms and online IM sessions is that they're great PRACTICE.
Now, I've met some UNBELIEVABLE women on the internet... so don't get me wrong here.
But don't worry too much about any particular girl... or any particular situation.
She could have had a boyfriend, or even a husband... and was just online because she was bored... or any of 100 other scenarios.
When something like this happens, just move on.
The point is that you're using the Internet for a GREAT "practice environment", and you're training your mind to be Cocky & Funny in the moment... which begins to translate into the REAL world as you do it.
To answer your question about how to get a girl to give you her email address and/or number, just do more of what you're already doing...
Keep throwing down the challenges...
Write back and say "Yea, you're probably not that adventurous".
She'll say "Yes I am!".
Then say "Well, if you were then you would have asked me for my number and called me already. But you're not. So you didn't...".
Keep this up until she asks for YOUR number.
Then, as soon as you hit the "send" button, IMher again quickly to say "I don't hear my phone ringing! Hurry up!".
You'll love the results you get from this kind of thing.
But be careful. And get LOTS of CURRENT pictures. Take it from someone who knows... lol... don't just take her word for it.
Be sure, I'll be posting alot more on finding and dating women orginally from an online source. eg. Match.com or whatever.
