I was texting this HB8 whose number I recently got. I felt like the conversation was going pretty well for the most part but in the end I ended up without a date. Obviously something went wrong somewhere so I'm posting the entire conversation right here. Maybe you guys can point out where I messed up. I am posting each text message word for word with no editing. It's quite lengthy. Some of her texts might be hard to understand, she's kind of a sloppy texter....

To anyone who actually took the time to read all that, thank you. What do you think went wrong here? Should I just be done texting with her and move on to the next (I don't want to chase. I've done that my whole life. That's part of why I'm here) or should I give her another chance?
