This is what happens when you take Chateau pickup advice to heart and apply it in the field.
Hey CH I was the one [bernieciz] who emailed you about the girls flaking with the “I’m sick excuse” so I tried out what you said and here is the result:
I called her and set up plans for tonight and eventually got a confirmation text this morning:
Heh, received this message today and it put a smile on my face:
I know what some of the less perceptive readers are thinking. “Where’s the successful close? She still flaked on him!”
Ah, not so fast, young pantywad. Context matters. You’ll note three developments that strongly suggest this second “sickness” text from the girl is not a flake (i.e., an excuse to bail). One, after the “flaky mcflakester” gibe, she promptly replied with a flurry of three texts. No girl does this for a man unless she has had her curiosity and interest (re)ignited.
Two, she initiated a confirmation text the next day. Again, a girl planning on flaking (a second time) would not do this.
Three, her second sickness excuse sounded sincere. She’s effusive with regret, and at least puts on a genuine show of intent to meet at some point in the near future. The fact appears to be that this girl is a flu magnet, and doesn’t want to meet while sniffles and coughing ruin her appearance.
My conclusion is that this girl is still down to meet, and I look forward to bernieciz giving us all an update soon.
PS If I were bernieciz, I wouldn’t bother replying to her last text. The balls are in her court now. No need to hammer out further mission directives. Alternately, bernieciz could tease her for her inability to stay healthy. “maybe laying off the hooch wd help you get better”. Or:
