I need your opinion on this:
So, I've met a girl a while ago. we talked a lot about everything, exchanged messages, lots of smiles, looking in each other eyes..
I started using kino trying to escalate and was being successfull, but when for some reason I tried to hold her hand while walking after a picnic..she didnt take it and felt unconfortable.
At that moment I've made a joke and changed her attention to another subject , but in my head I knew I was being rejected there. I understood she likes me but..as a friend, I guess.
I felt stupid so after that I decided to not pay her so much attention and start not spending so much time with her.I'm not being an asshole right now and I continue to be polite, but nowadays when we are together:
I dont make any jokes; sometimes I dont answer her messages because I'm "too busy"; I dont go for picnic and coffee with her anymore; no more kino..so basically I talk to her not being rude of course but I dont care much..
Her "holding hands rejection" and my "behaviour change" was 1 month ago. I was expecting her to miss the time we've spent together and ask me if "everything was ok", "why are you behaving different", "what I've I done" or something like that but the fact is that nothing of this happened.
She noticed that I was behaving different but she kept sending messages and using kino for a while (and getting no response from me), but now she stopped and nowadays there are mostly small talk and awkward silences between us..
I noticed that she is sad about the situation but she never talks about that.
Can you guys comment this situation please?
I think this is getting awkward but I dont want to bring the subject and talk with her about the situation because that would be stupid and I would be "needy" if I do that..
