Pulled up to a car park today. Out of the corner of my eye I see this blonde stunner getting out of her car. She walks fairly close to my car and glances at me so I say "excuse me, how do you get to the town centre from here?" (Legitimate question, I'm new to the area).
She tells me in a foreign accent. "What's that accent?" "Polish" she says.
"What are you up to this afternoon?" I say with a grin.
"I'm on my way to a job interview"
Me: "What's your name?"
(Tells me her name)
Me: "well you deserve a reward after your interview - put your number in here (pull out phone) - I've got a meeting now but I'll call you after and we can go for a coffee"
She puts her number straight in my phone.
So this part of the interaction went perfectly. When I finished my meeting I called her to ask how she did. Said I was "proud of her" which got her laughing. But then when I told her to meet me she flaked, said she was tired after such a long day. I tried to sway her to a point but she wasn't having any of it.
3 reasons she could have flaked (in my mind):
Her buying temp had dropped after that first initial attraction.
Her car was looked more like one you'd see driven by an older businessman rather than a young single girl - maybe she wasn't single.
I called making sure that my number was withheld - I'm not ready to give girls my own number, what if she texts me later at home and my wife picks it up. Maybe this made her suspicious of my intentions or something.
What could I have done differently to actually achieve the 'coffee date' today?
