Re: Why did you tell me that?
Definitely approval seeking. I won't shy away and say I haven't done it. Even now! But there's a good point to do it. Like if she was genuinely upset that she didn't hear from you. And she would only care if you were actually dating or in a relationship. (If only 15 min I would even tell my gf to get over it lol) So no investment, so no need to explain yourself. EVER! Lol.
