Oh ****, I forgot you're in Japan. That changes everything, wing-man is essential.

Too much face hiding in that pic imo, not authentic.

It's happened again.
Met a girl at the local pub, chatted to her, and gave her my email address.
She emails back the next day, and we arrange a dinner the next weekend.
The next weekend, I take her to a Belgian beer restaurant, a classy joint, where she gets drunk after 2 beers. Pay the 7000 yen bill and hold her hand as we go down the stairs. Being perfectly gentlemanly, I asked her if she wanted to be taken back to the train station. She said she was a little drunk, but fine.
We then proceeded to the nearby park, where kissing commenced. After that, coffee, and more kissing. By this time, it is 11pm, and I'm thinking if I should take her back to my house. I asked her, and she said, "You will think that I'm easy." I told her no, and, told her that perhaps we should call it a night and meet again soon. I took her back to the station and we caught separate trains back.
The next day, I emailed her and asked if she got back home okay. No reply.
Four days later, I emailed again and asked her out on a second date for the following weekend. No reply. That was three days ago.
So, I'm thinking two things:
1. She regretted getting with me when she woke up the next day, although by 11pm she had sobered up a fair bit, and was still into me.
2. She was pissed I didn't invite her back to my place, and I'm thinking now that I should have, but FFS, we were both a little drunk, and had only just met. I generally want to get to know a person for two dates before sleeping with them, preferably when we're both sober.
3. She's confused.
Anyway, once again, confused and pissed off that a girl who seemed to really be into me can't even be arsed to send an email after I basically treated her to a $100 meal and was perfectly gentlemanly to her the whole night.
Next time, call it a night before putting the hard word on. It's win/win/win because a) she'll either let you know there and then that she wants teh *** which you can take up or resist and up the ante even further if you're ballsy enough, b) she's a more traditional girl and will respect your restraint which will (likely) build anticipation for next time or c) she changed her mind so *** is off the table anyway (it's a win because you don't waste your time worrying about it)
Oh and stop bloody paying for meals.
I always pay for the meal on the first date, after that it's 50-50.
I should have been more firm with my decision regards teh ***, instead of discussing it.
is exchanging email addresses a thing when trying to hook up
- Nothing wrong with paying for the first meal (except if you don't see her again and feel used).
- I like how you are thinking 2 things, yet wrote 3.
- Call her. Its too easy to forget to respond to an email.

I don't have her number.
In Japan, it's more common to text, especially if you just met.
I always hate calling someone when they're busy.
I'm thinking if there is anything I should apologize for. I think not, and won't apologize over an email.
Any reason why you didn't get her number when you went on a date with her, since its common in Japan to text.
Definitely don't apologize, ffs. Actually what did you say to her before she said 'you'll think I'm easy'?
I can really remember, just mentioning that we could go back to my place, and then after she said the "easy" line, saying that no, I didn't think she was easy, and that I respected her and that we can meet again soon.
So 1950ish, I know. I should have just nailed her if I knew she would never email me again regardless.
It is so case-by-case. Some of my friends would say, "Dude, you should just nail her, get her drunk and cop a feel, etc." Whilst others would say, "Never take advantage of a drunk girl, even when she is fully agreeable to the notion."
She's either dead, or I did something wrong on the night.
