So, I just finished up my second year of college.
Among everything else that's happened this year, I've run into this particular girl a number of times.
I met her my freshman year when I was out with the boys, and she was out with some of her sorority sisters. I (drunk) ended up dancing with her somehow. Then, at a house party the beginning of my sophomore year, she asks me if I remember her. It took me a minute to place her, but I eventually did.
After that, I would run into her at random while doing things on campus; I'm participating in a homecoming parade, and we spot each other, and give extended eye contact. A team I'm working on does a dance in their sorority house, and she's there watching it. Obviously, I'm more than a little intrigued by these random encounters.
More recently, this past semester, I was at a frat house. Drunk again. I just finish dancing with another girl (and, as my boys told me, making out with her), and I run into this girl again. She calls me by name (which I was sure she didn't know), asks me if I remember her, hugs me, and we talk—I have no idea what about—and I ask her what her tattoo means. I take her number, and that's it for the night. I left about an hour later.
[Texted her. No response.]
After that, I ran into her again at another frat house. Not drunk this time. I approach her group of friends and talked to a guy I had class with. She is staring intently at me this whole time until I finally look at her and say hi, followed playfully with "you again!?" She tells me it's her friend's birthday. I wish her friend happy birthday, then she suddenly remembers who I am (we've worked together before at the campus news station—not sure how this is relevant). I talk a little more before seeing someone else I know and go off to talk to them. She walks by at some point during the night and touches me. I turned just in time to see who it was as she was walking out with her sorority sisters. I left some time later.
[Texted again. No response.]
I wonder how to go about this. It's one of those things I've been looking back on and trying to sort this out, if for nothing else but the learning experience.
Should I just go ahead and not worry about it until I see her again? Or should I keep pushing? I haven't the slightest idea of how to go about it.
