Alright guys, kind of a long story here so I'll trim it down as much as I can, and I would appreciate some advice.
****Keep in mind while you read this that I was not practicing game at this time. I'd like to know how I can use what I NOW know, and try to save this sh*tty situation.
I am 20 years old. This summer I was living at home, and I finally summoned the courage to just dive in head first and start texting this girl that I was obsessed with in high school. We never said one word to each other in high school, but eventually she ended up hearing through the grapevine that I was interested in her. She was one year older so we had hardly any contact. I never ended up going for it partly because of nervousness, and the idea that I thought I was already devalued in her mind when she heard I had a huge crush on her (for lack of a better term).
So a year and a half goes by, and one night I'm at college and she shows up at a party that I'm at. Its dark, everyone's dancing, drinking, typical sh1t. I see her and my eyes light up. I'm thinking, "this is my chance!" To my surprise, I didn't even have to do anything. She walks right up to me and goes, "aren't you from my high school?" I go, "Yeah haha I am". She grabs me, takes me to the corner of the dance floor and starts dancing up on me. She was REALLY into it. we end up making out, a lotta touching, a lotta feeling, pretty passionate. She doesn't let me out of her site until the night is over. I asked her to come back to my room, but she said she had to get up really early in the morning, so she couldn't do it. She gives me her phone number and I shoot her a few texts in the middle of the night, she responds a couple times and thats the last I hear from her.
So anyway, back to where I started the story. Another year and a half goes by, and I start texting her again.
ME: Hey _____ wats goin on its jake?
We continue to text each other off and on for a week give or take. After the ice was broken, I asked her if she wanted to go into town one night and watch my friend's dad's fusion jazz band play. She said she was totally up for doing that and that it sounded fun. She told me she was going to text me when she comes home for a weekend from her internship and we could plan something for then. At this point I'm on top of the world. I'm beside myself because I have a date lined up with literally my dream girl.
So, about a month goes by, and I still haven't heard from her. I start freaking out because I don't want things to fall through. I text her and say...
ME: Hey ___ wats up how's it goin?
Her: Hey, who is this again?
ME: ha ouch, its jake.
*no response back
And that's where it was left. EPIC fail. I don't even bother responding because I'm in utter shock that she doesn't remember our conversation about going out. So now, I have a few questions. Please feel free to expand on other aspects of the dilemma too. There's a lot of things that I would change in hindsight, but my 3 main questions are...
1) When she said "Who is this again?" Do you think she was testing me? as in a hard to get type of agenda?
2) I purposely gave her a lot of space after the initial agreement to go out because I didn't want to come across as desperate. Should I have done that?
3) Is there any hope for getting this girl "back"? Is there anything I can do to qualify myself to her after this failure?
Thanks guys. Looking forward to hearing back from some of you.
