Strike while the iron is hot or play it by the "rules"?

So a few days ago, I got in touch with a girl on through an online dating sight. I never expected a reply from her, but much to my surprise I actually did receive a reply. She claimed that the email I sent to her, was one of the very best she had ever read and I had earned a "brownie" point with her. After that, we hit it off pretty amazingly for a few more emails until she just stopped replying. So that is where the questions comes in. Do I strike while the iron is still hot and see if she would be interested in grabbing coffee or something, or do I play it by the rules and wait the "typical week" for a response before trying again. I would just hate to wait a week and the initial spark fizzle out. So what are you girls and guys thoughts?

As you guys said, just go for and the worst thing that can happen she say is no. Well, not only did she accept the date, I also got her number and she added me as a friend on Facebook. I guess being brave and going for what you want really does pay off in a big way sometimes.

    • Aren't you glad you struck while the iron was hot. Thanks for the update, its always nice to know how stuff turns out.

    • I am definitely glad it worked out. I guess she just needs a little space now to digest things, because I tried shooting her a text message today and didn't get a reply.

Have an opinion?

  • Just ask her out. The worst thing she can do is say no and then you can forget about her and move on.
