Two nights ago I met this really nice girl down in Philadelphia, chatted with her, and got her number (or I thought I did). I should have had her put the number in or given her my number or texted right away to make sure the number was correct but I didn't. So last night I sent her a text so she would know it was me that was calling her and asked her if it was a good time to talk. About 1 am they texted back that I have the wrong number and they don't know anyone by that name. It's possible she gave me a fake number but I kind of doubt it cause 609 is a real New Jersey area code and 651 is a real exchange within that code. So I suspect I got one of the last 4 digits wrong or transposed some numbers.
So here's what I know. She has a VERY unusual first name which I know the spelling of cause I asked her, I know her age, and a bunch of miscellaneous details which probably aren't useful for finding her. But I don't know her last name.
1) Searching her first name on Facebook and Google with no luck.
2) I would use the internet white pages but they require a last name which I don't know. Anyone know a way to search by first name?
3) Tonight I'm thinking I'm going to try switching some of the numbers and see if I reach her. Apparently 5s and 9s are the most commonly confused digits and she has lots of them in her number.
So this is a smart group anyone have any other ideas besides the ones I just listed in case the last one doesn't work?
I met her at a one time event so going back there won't help and we didn't have name tags. I know she works in a boutique but I have no idea which one.
I don't think any of the above approach will help you finding her.
If she is local, then best bit is to go out this weekend to town and then to the pubs in the evening. i know it's tough, but if you want to find her, this is the best way and if yOU clicked any photo then that's a bonus.

Usually when girls give out fake numbers they only change the last 1 or 2 digits. They almost always use their real area code and exchange.
You cannot argue with agile people so just take the extreme approach and shoot him.
I second that... people aren't really creative enough to come up with a truly random number. Plus if they get asked for the number again, if it's completely random they won't remember what they said the first time.
Do you remember through the drunken haze anything else? Could you go back to the same bar [every night for a year]?
