So here's an example of how I do it. I just met a girl here from Mexico 24 years old around what your age target it, beautiful and a professional athlete. I got her number on friday said we were going to make plans and I texted her today. Here's how the text went to secure the date. I will copy and paste and put Me: and Her: to clarify who's texting.

Me:so i set up for dinner at my friends place wednesday evening. It will be jazz night so prepare to be serenaded by beautiful music while you eat

Her:where is the place

Me: facebook link to resturant
they also have some of the best cocktails in town

Her:it looks very cool

Me:it's a little known spot my the local celebs

Her:at what time it opens
the problem is that is a little bit far awya
away

Me:we'll go over the exact details closer, I'm super tired haha. But have an open schedule that night, ill take care of everything and you just enjoy the evening
it open I think at 6
I was thinking we get there a little after 7

Her:so i will have to get there like 6 30

Me:get there or leave for there?
my friend owns the place, we can do what ever

Her:o nice haha , yes so i can see how i will move and check my times

Me:don't worry, I'll have you back by time.

Her:I have to get back at 11
perfect!

Me:wear something nice, i may or may not have have him dedicate a song to you
anyways, I'm going to get some rest. Can't wait to talk to you in person. It'll be a wonder evening

Her:have a great night !:)

Her:i didnt bring something nice ...yesterday I went with jeans and sneakers to the club

Me:don't worry, I've seen enough women in tight dresses in the clubs
just bring some good vibes and your smile

Her: haha i can perfect do that ;)

Her: and you have protection?

Me: no need, i protect you from everyone. I know the owner!

Too many people! Almost all of the world's problems are due to overpopulation. The rest are due to religion.

The passive aggressiveness is annoying in the forum sometimes. You got something to say, say it. don't hide behind sarcasm.

The point is to the OP the advantages of having a good social circle and how to get a girl excited for a date. We said we would go out. So I held her to her word and didn't give her a choice as I made arrangements for her already. She will feel compelled to go or even move her schedule around as she saw I out some effort. I can break it down more but I feel like it's a waste of my time as a lot of people here are all grumpy because they're not happy with their life or something.

Grumpy? It's this color scheme that brings everyone down. Yes, I saw how you presumed she was coming and you didn't even ask. When guys do that to guys it can be annoying (I know you wouldn't do that to another guy), but it would definitely work on more than 50% of women, especially younger ones. They would see it as confidence/leadership...

We could def use a more vibrant color scheme lol, I'm just trying to help guys out. But apparently it threatens other's manhood or something.

I'm guessing it's because you come across like Dan Bilzerian, lol. You might mean well but "dude I got this fine Mexican chick by throwing money and power at her" isn't going to help anybody.

I'm not throwing money at her....It's called being connected. I know the band and the owner, I didn't say I'm going to come pick you up in a jet and we're going on a trip. I don't currently have a lot of money, I'm coaching basketball as my sole source of income pretty much...I'm returning the states in a few months for another job offer. What I just showed you is how to do it with money, it's called having a social circle that benefits you.

You dont think it can help anyone and a lot of people have that mindset, because of their circumstances. DO you think I woke up and just know all these people? No I grinded for year for a entertainment and event planning company. After a year, I left to do it independently due to not being allowed to be my own boss and have my own ideas. I started my small business of helping entertainers book gigs and help smaller businesses promote, and consult with them with all sorts of matters from budgeting to decor. I got here to this point with hard work. But haters going to hate. I helped clubs, bars, restaurants. I got them into the W magazine on recommended places to eat around taipei. I worked for my success. There are a of you guys out there with excuses on why you can't do this. Oh I live in Hisnchu, oh I don't have a lot of money, oh I don't have a cool job ect ect ect. Make your life. I could work at my father company and be chairman of the board today. I refuse to take his offer and money. I don't want him to own me. I do what fulfills me. And not take the safe route and get stuck in a situation I hate because it's what other people are doing. Stop making excuses and do something that you can look back on not regret.
