I had just made a very long and descriptive thread and when I went to preview the post I was logged out so I lost it all, so I'll cut this short.
Backstory:I have been on two dates with this girl, both were okay and pretty much served to get to know each other better (no touch or k-closing) could have gone better but I haven't dated before (only recently have I really heavily built up my self confidence and changed my looks for the better). I could have easily dated before but I didnt want to waste my time on sub par women I wouldnt be interested in. So there is this chick, I really like her (she doesn't know the extent of this, I've been pretty vague). I have texted her a few times, called her 3 times (two she picked up but she was with her friends so it was short, third time is explaned below), up until recently she seemed pretty interested. She isnt one to play games, really kind, but her friends could be messing with her.
So heres the situation, I called her on tuesday but she didnt answer because she was with her friends, messaged her afterwards and the resulting convo went well, pretty sure I made her laugh, found out she was on a ski trip with some friends and would be there for the week. Okay, cool, didnt message her for 4 days because I wanted her to have fun with her friends, on the fifth day i asked her how its been going (was going to end with asking her out), joked about her ski friends being in a gang to add some humor to the question, no reply. So the next day I messaged her again, thought she had gotten back (she was tagged in a image with her friends where the description was "what a great way to end the camp") and it was raining hard outside so I said she would need water skis soon, kinda dull but I was sure she would reply, nothing. So after working out later in the day (i work out 5 days a week, absolute life changing hobby for me) I found out that a football buddy had died in a car accident that day which wrecked my day hard(I was sure this would have gotten her to reply because I asked if she had heard what had happened to him).
So this is where I am now, I sent that last text at 6 and its 11 now, usually she replies at the end of the day, I don't know if I screwed up the last time I messaged her, shes busy, doesnt want to bother me later in the day (past texts were at 9 pm or so when we both no neither of us are up to much but these current texts were earlier in the day) still at the camp, or lost interest. Its too late in the day to message her today but I meed to know how I should act next, best i can think of is:
1. Wait the next day out without messaging her and do something the following day
2. Message her tomorrow and hope for a reply
3. Call her tomorrow or the following day
4. Ask her friend whats up
And thats it, open to suggestions, could really use some good advice and this forum seemed like the right place.
