Re: To ask or not to ask
Reading through all of these posts, and especially focusing on the one where you thought she was ignoring you, I can tell you right now that you should quit because you're going to fail in the end. You're far too obsessed with this girl, your emotions are through the roof for her, and you're now focused on the outcome so much that you have lost the ability to move through the process of attraction without the fear that some action is going to lead to failure. Such conditions like these will only sabotage you, and it will only cause you pain.
Right now, since she can't make up her mind, you have two approaches to the situation. Either:
A. Prove to her that you are the best of the options and that she should pick you. OR
B. Cut things off in a move to force her to make up her mind.
This can be done in a single move, which involves you having a great time without her. In addition, you should cut off communication with her. Wait a few days, then text her back. If she is really that intertwined with you, then she will respond long before the 48 hour mark is up. You should also aim to make the conversations short and sweet. Keep them fun and interesting, but don't let her chat the time in the world away with you. Make her leaving that conversation wanting more, and she will come back for you.
Either way, none of the above will help you as long as you are so invested into this. Take a step back, clear your mind, and approach this in a cool manner.
