I’m opening up to her, admitting I like something nerdy, and teasing her about it as well. I follow it up by sharing a nightmare that I’ve had which relates to one of her private fears.
That creates an instant personal connection and provides incentive for her to message back.
This combination of being carefree yet direct lets her know I’m attracted to her without being creepy.
I hate olives with a passion and so does she, so why not joke about it?
They don’t know you, they haven’t met you face-to-face, and they don’t want to get stuck on a bad date.
