Re: What's an alpha way to move on?
So a few things. Let's focus not necessarily on the last few events but the beginning. So sounds like she was interested in you in the beginning. You wrote there were brief messages in between, but how were those conversations. Waiting from xmas until everyone gets back is a long time for anything to fizzle, especially if it wasn't deep to begin with. In a situation like this it's important to run good text game and escalate over text. This will help also when you actually meet up. So were you doing that enough and in the right way?
Because I think if you did do it the right way, she would have been on the hook. So either she would not have flaked, or if she flaked for a good reason, she would have been the one to reschedule with you and apologize.
So my view is something went south before the last time. But regardless, she was very rude for flaking. She should have been more apologetic and rescheudle. In a situation like this, I would just let her know. Not in a bitter jilted sort of way... but i would say, "Hey listen, sorry about your work thing, but I took time off to meet you, and it's not the nicest thing to do this. You are going to make this up to me and it's going to be your treat!" This has worked for me 1/3 times. Good luck!
