Im curious to know how Don Juan handled the "lol" text. Stud muffin city maybe Guru1000 can help fluff is way through it.I've always said no in these situations and tell her we would reschedule for another time. But there was one time a chic brought her sister that was visiting from out of town so I brought my friend. It all worked out great and a lot of fun. However it wasn't conducive to anything sexual. I did end up dating the chic.
Because she knows what happens with dates in the evening. She disqualified you as a romantic/sexual possibility earlier. The context of this whole discussion is key - do you have it? Somewhere in that is what made her suggest bringing friends and saying 7 is too late.She has already said 7 pm is too late.
She's playing stupid now and asked me, "Why not?" I'm going to go #2. Try to set this up and flake like a snake.Do one of two things:
1.) Say "What do your friends look like and are they single?"
2.) Set it all up and just flake on her sorry @ss. That way she has plenty of friends that see her waiting for you to walk through the door, which you wont. When she asks you why you didnt show up tell her that "Sorry hun, I got tied up with my friends".
By doing #2 she will either never reach out again or she will have so much respect and more attraction for you that she will probably be dtf asap.
And either is a great outcome if I am in your shoes.
