So without making this a long drawn out thing my friend is trying to hook me up with his friend who is a really sweet cute girl. We have now hung out 3 times and I still don't have her number nor have I added her on facebook. The reason for the number is there hasn't been a good private time to ask because we have been out in groups these three times...no biggie and I haven't added her on facebook because I don't want to come off as awkward again no biggie. Now my buddy wanted us all to hangout this weekend which is cool, he went to talk to her about it and without even mentioning my name he asked he she wanted to hangout. She said yeah I can't on Friday or Saturday, what about Sunday night?
Mind you she doesn't at this time if I'll even be there or even in town. Without him saying a word she stops and says "oh wait Sunday won't work if Matt is going back to school will it?" So I am on her mind at least a little bit. Then she tells my buddy she will just skip her family dinner on Saturday if we are all hanging out if that worked for me. My buddy said it would and then said this is fun our little group, trying to pry for information. She replied with yeah it is really fun the four of us hanging out. Being me, her, my buddy and his gal.
The first time we hung out we all got dinner all paid separate. The second time we went out we went to my buddies art show at a gallery and then we got dinner and the waiter brought two checks by accident so I payed for her she was really thankful and nice about it. (everyone told me that was a date I don't think so.) And last time we went out it was dinner and a movie all payed separate again.
So we have been to dinner at an Indian place, a Thai place, and an art gallery. All different things to show I have depth haha. So my two questions to everyone are:
1. I know I am 21 and have had girlfriends before but usually I initiate flirting and get the numbers myself. In this situation with her being his friend and it being group outings what is the best way without being awkward to get her number?
2. Where should we go to keep it interesting and the conversation flowing?
Oh and this is a big deal because she loves all sports and when I first met er she was sporting a reds purse and I inquired about it and we proceeded to talk reds for 2 hours. So help would be greatly appreciated.
