You could also go for a more creative text by referencing something you talked about when you met, such as, Morgan, a sophomore at the University of Missouri, usually goes with this approach.“By referencing something you talked about the night before, you’re showing him that you remember him and that you are someone worth remembering,” she says.Situation #1: You got his number (but he doesn’t have yours) His phone was hooked up to the speakers playing the party playlist or it was completely out of battery and lying uselessly on the couch.Either way, he simply gave you his number and wasn’t able to ask for yours. Now the ball is in your court to decide just what to say to him the next day.“If a girl went out of her way to get my number, I would be flattered,” Ryan says. At the party last night, we talked about the best places to get Thai food.“It shows that she’s interested in me, and that makes me more interested in her.” Try talking to him with a purpose in mind by saying something like, Hey, Mike! Where did you say was your favorite place in (current location) to get Thai?
You had a good night, but trying to contact him now would just be futile. While this may take a little more elbow grease, if you really hit it off, it can be done in two simple steps: Enlist the help of one of your friends. Lauren, a junior at the University of Kansas, was the go-between friend in this situation.In addition to writing for Her Campus, she is an avid blogger of all things boys on her blog lifeisarom-com.A Saint Louis native, she’s a Midwestern girl with big dreams.I recommended the shop that I go to, and then we just kept talking.” After he responds (depending on his response), then you can pick up the conversation normally with no other purpose than simply to talk to him. The worst thing that could happen would be for him to simply ignore your request. “If I meet a cute guy at a party, I’ll friend him on Facebook the next day,” Rebecca says.After the party, you sifted through the host’s Facebook friends trying to find him. You don’t have to worry about this action meaning anything, and you don’t have to re-read the text 10 times before you send it. And with that click, you’re simultaneously reminding him of your name, face and, if you do it soon enough, when you met him.She saw you two flirting it up, and she lived on his floor last year in the dorms. “My friend Sarah had just met my friend Blake from [her school], but they didn’t exchange numbers,” she says.“I gave Sarah his number and helped her craft a text to him asking him about his shoes. He totally texted her back.” While your text to him may have to be a bit more carefully crafted considering the indirect way in which you obtained his number, as long as he’s interested (and why wouldn’t he be?! ), he’ll gladly accept the chance to get in contact with you.Hitting it off with a guy at a party is just the beginning.After the initial encounter, there’s so much to look forward to!As long as you make it clear that you’re interested and your efforts don’t cross over into creeper territory, you’re golden.Marisa is a sophomore at the University of Missouri - Columbia (Mizzou), where she is pursuing a degree in Journalism with an emphasis in Magazine Writing and a minor in Spanish.
