Some women will respond back. And that's where the dance starts. Continue, and escalate theconversation. No matter how attracted she was when you first met, you'll need to rebuild someattraction through text.We've got too much to cover to go through all that here, and besides, it's all in Braddock's book(look up the part on 'Dynamite Theory'). Once you get her past the Hook Point, then casuallyask her what she's doing "tonight". Not "for Valentine's" - just say "tonight" like it's any other Sunday.THIS IS JUST A QUESTION. DO NOT ASK HER OUT.There are a million different responses you might get, but there's only one thing that's important.Either she has firm plans or she doesn't.If she doesn't have firm plans, then invite her out. But not on a date. That's too weird, especiallyif you haven't been in close contact with her. Tell her you and your friends are going out for afew drinks and invite her to "join up later".Ideally frame it in a way that implies that it's a mixed group or she might worry it's a bunch of lonely guys on the prowl.People love how the Routines Manual Vol 2 (try it this week for just $9.99!) gives the exactwording of the right things to say for any situation, so I'm going to use that approach here.You:
"[Random Content]. So what are you up to tonight?"
"I'm not sure, right now I'm just hanging out."
"Cool, I'm going to a friend's place for a bit then we're heading out, she lives in[neighborhood] so we'll probably go out there. Come join up later!
Did you notice how the last message is designed to get the word "her" into the text in a way thatdoesn't seem forced?She might bring a friend. If so, bring one of your own. If she wonders where "everyone else" is,say something plausible and then transition to a better topic. For example:
"It's like Valentine's Day Survivor. Jessica's still there drunk dialing her ex-boyfriend, she'll beback in a few, Dave and Kayla went to do some couples stuff and Jay - well let's just say that Jay shouldn't drink on an empty stomach. Hey, that reminds me...
