So I've been gaming this girl for quite some time now, and everything had been going pretty smoothly. She was overtly responsive to my flirting, has given me tons of IOI's in the past, and always tries to keep the conversation going whenever we talk. She would even playfully respond to my future projections about us being married/divorced and having kids. The only problem is that she'd been out of town for the past few weeks, so I hadn't gotten the chance to ask her out properly.
This is where it gets interesting. I text her a few nights ago and tell her that we should meet up before classes start up again. She readily agrees. A couple days later, I call her up and tell her I want to take her out to dinner the following night. She tells me she's busy that night and so I ask what she's doing the next night, to which she says that she'll get back to me.
Well, this morning I find out that one of her friends, who is about 2 years younger than she is, was in the middle of confessing his love to her when I made the call to ask her to dinner. He even made some post on a social networking site about how she's his 'best friend', and he loves her no matter what, and wants her to be his girlfriend and blah blah blah. Reading it made me cringe, because what girl in her right mind wouldn't see something like that and head for the hills? Apparently not her, as I saw her comment on it that she thought it was super cute. Ew.
Shortly after I had this revelation, I get a message from her saying that she MIGHT be free on such and such day. So naturally I stay alpha and go non-reactive, tell her I have plans for that night, and didn't respond to her next text.
Honestly, I'm just too shocked by what this kid did to make any sense of it. Nothing is official yet, so I don't know if they're exclusive after his little confession or not. Assuming they DO end up dating, what should my next move be? I'm definitely going to keep her on the back burner at least while I game other girls, but does anyone else think this guy's stunt would have a lasting effect? Surely she would realize how AFC and potential stalker material this guy is.
Here is a link to my original post to give some context.
