Re: Flowers sent to an Italian girl

I think you should consider the possibility that she just wanted to network for her career, nothing more.

Its completely possible. I felt though that we had discussed enough on a more personal and interest level based to not necessarily warrant this.

I am hoping - that behind the make-up - and the instagram page - there is a very down to earth traditional Italian girl who has a genuine passion and interest in the same things I'm into.

Who comes back from holiday on a Monday? OK, maybe people do, but Zeezack she gave no indication she would be interested such as "shoot, just getting back from holiday then. Maybe later in the week?" This is your second try, both times she has declined and neither time has she suggested an alternative.

You tried, that's the most you can do, I think you need to let this go.

Yes she has been passive about it. Shame - just be nice to meet her for a coffee than just talk via social networks as a text buddy.


- My reply. To the point, but polite - trying to setup an actual written rejection - or more validity on such a rejection.

"Hope you have a fab holiday. Let me know when you're free and I can take you out on a date to check this place out and see how awesome it is

I'd really like to meet you and get to know you - what do ya think?"

She's trying to avoid explicitly rejecting you to keep you orbiting.

She declined without any sort of alternative date. Then she redirected the conversation.

I think you just need to move on.

Well, there you go then. Don't take this personally. Move on.

Too bad she wasn't more forthcoming earlier. She needs to work on communication.

May not be true, might just be her way of stopping any further date attempts by you. Didn't you say you message back and forth on FB? If she has her status as single and never mentions a boyfriend she is either lying to you or doesn't advertise having a boyfriend so she can manipulate men by using her looks, as in using her looks for personal and professional gains.


I would just message her back and say "sorry, I had no idea, let's just keep it professional then". Then going forward keep in mind she is nothing more than a professional contact.

^ just seems strange why she isn't forthcoming or why should lie - its ok for her to say - she is not looking for a relationship at the moment - or she doesn't share the same feelings.

"If she has her status as single and never mentions a boyfriend she is either lying to you or doesn't advertise having a boyfriend "
^her status is single. Hasn't mentioned a boyfriend - maybe she was seeing a guy back in August? Strange why should wouldn't tell me this - when she got the first batch of flowers.

"sorry, I had no idea, let's just keep it professional then".
^ yeah I did that -- it looked like she was writing a response - then didn't.
