Sometimes a girl won’t give you much (verbally or textually), largely because she’s shy, or just doesn’t know how to process your novel approach (in this case, my approach).
Most guys make the blunder of thinking that the girl isn’t interested because she only gives 1-liners and 1-worders. That is very true…but only if your game sucks.
Most times however, when a girl hits me with very little in reciprocation, I interpret that to mean that she isn’t warmed up to me…AS YET!
In that case; I plow a with more self-amusement shit that doesn’t make logical sense, but is funny anyway.
Hence, that’s what I do whenever a girl replies with very little: I keep plowing with nonsense until she eventually opens up.
Nine in ten times, the girl eventually opens up within days or weeks of me intermittently inboxing her.
Also, you have girls who are naturally on the shier side. So you won’t get much either way out of such girls. So you have to plow with your stuff, regardless.
Additionally, as long as the girl’s responding, it is always the best sign!
Doesn’t matter if it’s 1 worders. The fact that she invests and expends energy and time into replying, means that there’s some level of engagement there.
Moreover, your chances are only doomed when the girl isn’t responding at all. As you will see in the chat log here between this total stranger (a pastry chef) and me, her replies are 1-worders for the most part.
However, I kept doing my stuff because I know she loves it [women in general dig lighthearted nonsense 🙂 ], but she doesn’t know how to mentally process my unorthodox approach which she finds very amusing.
All in all, don’t become discombobulated by minimal replies from the girl.
Keep amusing yourself, and keep amusing her, and eventually, the needle will tilt to a more balanced interaction which will lead to a pickup.
On a related note, in the old school Pick-up world, there’s something dubbed the 90-10 rule: the beleaguered 90-10 rule.
It essentially says that the guy is expected to do 90% of the talking (initially) as you’d seen in the screenshots above.
I did the bulk of the contribution: 90% of it.
If you can’t do 90% of the talking/texting on the initial pickup, then it’ll be real difficult for you to game, pick up and bang shy girls [total strangers primarily], or any girl for that matter, since it’s incumbent upon the guy to attract, woe, court and seduce (not the other way around).
As the girl begins to open up, things will have shifted to a more balanced flow.
