I'll try and keep this short and sweet. Please read it all, it's fairly interesting lol.
So I have been flirting and talking with this girl at my work. I'm 21, and she's 18. She recently told a mutual friend of ours at work that she was very interested in me and thought I was attractive. She ended up asking me to work a few nights so that she could see me more, so I did. That friend told me, and in return, I acted upon it and asked her to dinner. She accepted, however, the day of the dinner date, she had to postpone until the next day because her dad needed to meet with her. So we postponed until the next day and I took her out for her 1 hour break. The date went well and she seemed like she had a great time. I told her to text me and she never did, unfortunately. However, our mutual friend asked her how the date was, and she replied, "It was great! He is so much fun and really funny! I had an amazing time!" and so the next day at work I ignored her until she came to see me first, in which, she did. She was telling me how she had to get stuff ready for her appartment and she was happy I was working the night shift with her. She ended up taking 30 minutes over on her break because the Electric company was still at her appartment and she couldn't leave. Anyway, the next day I asked her if she'd like to hang out Sunday around 6 or 6:30, she said "Yeah that sounds fun!" and smiled. I said alright and she left for the day. I texted her Sunday saying, "Just making sure we're still on for tonight!" and she replied, "Well... idk i got fired."
Shocker. We talked for a little bit and the conversation ended with me saying, "I know you may not feel up to it but if you let me take you out tonight I promise you'll have fun and it will get your mind off of everything." She said, "Okay, lol. I'll let you know as soon as I get done moving!"
I never received a text after that. Monday passed, Tuesday passed, Wednesday came and one of her "old friends" came up to me and asked what was wrong, I told her. She replied with, "You can do better, she's a whore and sleeps around all the time and she always stands people up. She's lazy and stupid. She told me she didn't like you and that you were gross. Plus, she just moved in with her ex because she can't afford this apartment now since she got fired. Infact, she has a bear and a card from some guy in her drawer at work"
I believed her. So I got angry, and told her every negative thing that my girl said about her. I know I shouldn't have, but I got caught up in the moment. So she confronted her. I got a text wendesday from My girl saying, "Really?... wow."
We argued for a bit and I etn on saying how I hear she has been playing with me and how she moved in with her ex and all of that. She was telling me none of it was true and I should have came up to her instead of assuming some stranger was correct. She proceeded to telling me that everything she told our mutual friend was right and she did like me. Finally, I clarified everything. I asked if she was with her ex. She said "No, I'm not" I asked her about the bear, she said, "My ex dropped it off with flowers and I took the flowers home and left the bear and note here. She asked me what all I left and I told her that and my notebook."
I then asked, "Why did you stand me up Sunday?" and she replied with "I was still moving things until 10 that night, I was very tired and I was very frustrated with me being fired. It passed my mind to text you to be honest and I'm very sorry. Me and Susan (her old friend) are no longer talking now."
I said, "That's all I needed to hear, I believe every word you're saying. I just needed to hear it from you."
So yesterday I then texted, "Hey. Listen, I fucked up. I got caught up in the moment and believed some stupid lies when I should have believed in you to begin with. If you're down, I'm totally game to try this one more time. If not, I totally understand. I like you... but I'm not going to chase you. We'll go our seperate ways. All I'm asking for is a chance."
She replied with, "We can start back to where we started..."
and we texted all day yesterday.
So what's going on? I know I messed up, it seems as though she likes me and I should take her word but now I'm sketch about it a little. Is it worth persuing? What would you do in this situation? Is she really interested in me?
