I got him to ask me out.
I knew what I was doing as I did it.
Slowly build up conversation to the point where you make a clear declaration that you hate texting.
Pause and wait to see if he takes that as a hint to make a move.
Begin composing the message telling him that was his cue to invite you to hang out in real life.
Delete message as he picks up the cue and asks you what you are doing over the weekend.
Cheer with best girl friend on social media chat.
Respond to his question with some detail and shoot back the question of, “why? Did you want to ask me to hang out so we could have a real life conversation?”
Cheerfully read his response about how you took the words out of his mouth, and muse over whether you put them there in the first place.
It’s a date. I mean, it’s a hang out. We’re both too chill and our acquaintanceship is far too new to actually call it a date. I wonder if I’m supposed to call it a date. I don’t even know. Eh, I’ll find out this weekend when we “hang out”.
