There's this girl that I met that works in the same shopping center that I do. I be-friended her on facebook and one night we were chatting (I initiated the conversation). As we got to talking, she told me about how she was going to New York for the weekend. I said something along the lines of have fun but she said that we could still text each other. After exchanging numbers and chatting for a little bit more, we each logged off. She left for NY that weekend and I didn't text her for awhile. I went to this concert at night and texted her about rocking out in the rain. I didn't expect her to answer back because either she was still on the plane or maybe unpacking or perhaps she didnt want to answer back. At about 11pm that night, she responds back. This initiated a 24 hour text-a-thon. When she was getting ready to go to sleep the next night, she texted that she was going shopping with her mom the next day. I decided not to text her at all that day and not interrupt her shopping experience...whatever She gets back on Sunday and neither of us text each other for a few days. One day after driving home from working out, I decided, "fuck it, I'd like to talk to her, I should text her." I did and we had another texting sessions that lasted a few days. At the end, she simply did not respond to one of my texts but I let it go. It's been several weeks now and neither of us have texted each other. I've seen her maybe once briefly (same shopping complex) but I was in a hurry to go to sleep. Fast forward to Friday night and I'm walking out of my job. Her and her friends are sitting on the curb and she calls me over. We all converse for a little bit (they had just seen a movie) but eventually I rejoin the rest of my coworkers. Once again, neither of us have texted each other. I'm slightly puzzled because at first it seemed like she was showing interest by asking for my number. Then again, I would have asked for it on some later date, preferably in person when I felt comfortable enough that we had reached that stage. My question is: why does she not ever text me? I'm not concerned about her not liking me or not having time to text me but it seems pointless to want someone's number and then not show any interest in texting them back. If she simply has no time to text me, I understand. Or is she simply waiting for me to text her? Blades, I'm not quite sure what to do. Usually in these situations, I don't do anything which is often the wrong thing to do. One thing I can do is converse with her in person next time I see her on a break. I'm simply curious as to what mental process is happening right now. I'm probably just crazy...yep. ******UPDATE****** well, things have taken an interesting turn. I texted her a few nights ago asking how she was. She replied that she was awful and that she couldnt talk right now. Fair enough. I texted her the next day hoping her day was better and that if she wanted to talk i was here. I effectively put the ball in her court. She replied back, "Thanks" I saw her that night (had no idea she was working) and walked in to say hello. I asked her how things were going and we had about a 2 minute conversation before I felt really uncomfortable and just left. Now I know most of you will read this and tell me to man up or be more confident. Here's the thing: when I saw her as I was approaching the store, I was psyching myself into this whole "Be a Man" phase of mind. I walked through those doors confident and holding my head high. I expressed general concern with sincerity of resolve. However, she kept shifting from side to side, looking away (past me, but not at anything/anyone in particular essentially not wanting to hold eye contact), not directly contributing back to the conversation. I started feeling uncomfortable, like I was talking to her through a screen door, just really fucking awkward. I got fed up with her attitude so I left. Maybe she's shy and got intimidated. But, I did tell her that if she needed to talk to me, she could. I closed down my store tonight and was walking with another co-worker to our cars and passed by her store and she was inside. I waved to a guy I know inside and then kept on walking. She didn't see me and I didn't look back to check. I'm not trying to snub her, moreso give her her space. If she wants to come to me she can but I'm not going to push for total contribution to anything that could come out between us therefore I'm stepping back and I'm letting it all go.
